    Branching off of an idea spawned from the bowels of this thread: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1190612/

    Let's make an RJ wall calendar. 12 months. 12 models, all verified RJ members who agree to be in it for free.

    So I'll get this thing going if no one else will... it might take a bit of work but it's for a good cause. So let's do it! First, we will need the following:

    -Four more judges of photos

    -A charity to donate all profits to

    I can find publishers, I have contacts through my job.

    Photo submission will be in this thread. If you have a photo you want to submit, please either message myself, another judge, or post a link to it in this thread. I'd recommend keeping them out of public view at this time as the goal is to have people paying for them.

    All photos must be clear and must show your face. A good, clear view of your face is generally a strong selling point. Nudity is an option.

    Example links are examples of adult photo options and are NSFW.

    Do: http://www.realjock.com/fullphoto/499335

    Don't: WARNING NOT A CLASSY PHOTO AT ALL http://www.realjock.com/fullphoto/560197

    Anyway, submit away! Prospective judges, apply in this thread icon_smile.gif

    Why must they show something naughty?
    By the way that second picture is repulsive to me and I wish you would warn someone before they look at it.

    Sidenote: Who is the decider of what is acceptable naughty and what is not?

    But....

    Couldn't it be a charity calendar without necessarily showing dick and ass? I would gladly purchase a calendar of hot guys (or even just great nice guys here on RJ) and I don't need to see their wiener or their butt to donate.

    Well I started the original thread, so I'll put my 2 cents in. No dick or ass. Also I'd think it to be appropriate to vote for one month at a time (e.g at the first of each month start a "Real Jock Calendar Image of the Month: November" thread). Images are submitted and voted on for that month, at the end of the month the votes are tallied, and that's the image for that month. True, it'd take a year, but are we in a hurry?

    If you're going to buy a calendar full of hot people, why not go all the way with it? Obviously no boners etc. but let's face it: a lot of people would pay to see RJ members naked. We could even do an SFW one and an NSFW one, to hit an even wider audience. The goal isn't to get an upgraded MotD, the goal is to help a charity, which no one has suggested yet.

    QUESTIONS needing to be ANSWERED. Most pressing at the top.

    Which charity?

    Now, less important but still of utmost importance:

    One calendar vs. two? SFW vs. NSFW, or one of each, i.e. "Men of RealJock"/"Men of RealJock Bare" or something like that?

    Not that charity isn't as awesome as a bucket of puppies, but good luck finding guys willing to have their naked image publicly distributed and purchased with them not receiving a dime for it in the name of a random yet-to-be-selected charity just for shits and giggles.

    I want to be a prospective judge. I also want to be in the calendar. I cannot do both can I? Shit....to judge or want to be judged but only on the premise that I'd be confident enough to make it...oh I'll fail either way. icon_biggrin.gificon_eek.gif

    I'd do it, and I'm sure others would too if it were for the right cause. Think of it as donating the money they would've gotten for whipping it out. Sure, most guys would want to make money, but for those of us who may already have material like that out there, it probably isn't as big of a deal.

    Fearthefall, you're like the young gay version of Hugh Hefner in the making.

    I think it should stick to being SFW.

    You want everything to be SFW. icon_rolleyes.gif

    The Trevor Project should be the charity. DADT is self defeating and simplyl fucking stupid, DOMA is outright cuntish, but THE issue to ride on at the moment is helping da kidz.

    http://www.thetrevorproject.org/

    I don´t think full on hard on pics are really what it should be about, but almost suitable for work "artistic nudes" (like my smurf picture or my adult pic) are fine. It´s meant to be a fucking gay calendar from a jock/fitness site. Needz flesh (or sports fetish gear icon_rolleyes.gif )

    Nooooooo I don't want everything to be SFW, I just think for this, it should be kept as no below-waist full-frontal nudity, as that may discourage people from participating.

    Definitely agree with the charity - that's the one I was thinking of when I mentioned it before but I didn't know the name of it.

    I agree that your nudes are very artistic and tasteful icon_razz.gif

    I like the idea of sports gear...this site is Real JOCK after all - maybe specify everyone has to be in a jockstrap?

    Second Thought:

    I propose an "in action" calendar with 12 different sports/activities (e.g. a swimmer/water polo player or diver, a football player, a gym rat (or two), wrestling, rugby, hockey, soccer, baseball, boxing, surfing, a gymnast, a dancer, someone doing yoga or pilates etc etc)

    An "action" (or at least activity themed) pic would actually be a decent fit for the site, rather than just 12 nice flesh pics icon_smile.gif I like flesh pics, but there are a lot of calendars.... so we need an angle, and a RealJocks calendar with profits going to the Trevor Project is as good a one as I think we´ll get. It might, if done well, also get publicity for the Trevor Project and for RJ.

    We easily have the talent to do this. But it´s kinda late to be starting if this is actually going to happen this year (ie sale for Jan 2011)

    We should make a "desktop" version of the calendar: find a way of sending the pics out so that they can be made into computer desktops... Again, it fits the virtual nature of the community. Could have the pic as the whole desktop and then a small grid with the days and dates... Again we have the techy people to do this. Oh if only there were gay graphic designers....

    Is it good to have a hard copy one too? I haven´t had a hard copy calendar for 20 years. Or would that slow the process down too much? If we go digital then there of course the issues of it being stolen but we could perhaps put something on the images asking people to donate to the Trevor Project. Or is there some "iTunes" way of controlling it. I´m sure someone on the site knows.

    A sports themed RJ calendar, in electronic format (possibly also hard copy), with proceeds going to the Trevor Project... That would show we were a community and not just another dating site.

    Oh and maybe I might be a picture judge....

    I like the online distribution idea. However, in terms of sports, sex sells. So if we can get flesh-y pictures of guys doing sports/athletic activities, that would probably be best.

    Ah an RJ popularity calendar of all the hot jocks that have won MOTD. Why not just take them from that list and save us all a lot of time.

    Obviously all pics I would approve would be hot. Online distribution would also speed up production, cut out distribution costs and logistics etc. Can you have desktops on Ipads? Iphones?

    I agree -- I almost lost my lunch when that popped up on my screen. That was all kinds of inappropriate. What does the OP think this is -- Manhunt? icon_eek.gif

    "-Four more judges of photos"

    Me me me!
    I am by far the most judge-mental person on this site!
