It comes along once a year like Lesbian Christmas. The ESPN Body Issue with naked female (OK, and male too) athletes showing us their assets. It’s a bonanza of flesh and power that I always check out because, um, science? Yeah, definitely science.
Am I the only one who thinks, “Damn, I wonder if that sand is hot on her ass?” during these sorts of situations.
Ginger Huber, Cliff Diving
Yet another in a long series of Sports I Wouldn’t Try, Let Alone Nude.
Danyelle Wolf, Boxing
Ditto from above.
Angel McCoughtry, Basketball
Though naked basketball, that I would definitely watch.
Hilary Knight, Hockey
Naked ice hockey would be a much gentler game, I think.
Jamie Anderson, Snowboarding
I’m always a little less than pleased when they have people – particularly the women – pose in ways that have nothing (or in this case almost nothing) to do with their sports.
Amy Purdy, Paralympic Snowboarding
Another case in point – beautiful image, what does this have to do with snowboarding?
Coco Ho, Surfer
By comparison, isn’t this so much better?
Alia Evans, Bobsled
And this one, too?
Megan Rapinoe, Soccer
Fine, I’ll accept it because it’s Megan and at least there’s a soccer ball. What, they’re all still naked ladies. So I’m easy.
