As the internet implodes with the news that Kim Kardashian’s naked posterior is on the front of Paper magazine, we thought we’d jump right on the nudity bandwagon and bring you this exciting missive from the clothes-free front line.

That’s right, Taiwan’s rugby union players are releasing a naked calendar, and we’ve got the pics to prove it!

“We may be wild on the field,” the players declare on their official site, “but we are handsome in front of the camera too!…We are passionate, bold rugby players!” The calendar boys were chosen from present and past players by a team of experts.

▼ How do we get on that judging panel?

The calendar will actually be available in two different versions: a standard version, where the male players pose with bikini-clad ladies, and a ‘stripped down’ version with just the men. So I guess everyone wins…?

▼ Anyway, here’s a making-of video!

▼ And finally, here are some shots from last year’s calendar. You’re welcome.
