Move Over, Bad Boys and Firemen: It’s the ‘Nice Jewish Guys’ Calendar

I know, I know — bad boys are sexy, and firemen make great calendars; it wasn’t just the heart-wrenching plot-lines and cutting humor that kept me religiously tuned in to Rescue Me for seven straight seasons. But when the bad boys’ commitment issues, living-on-the-edge lifestyle, and too-cool attitude get tiresome (and they always do), it might be time for a new sort of fantasy man — one you can take home to Mom and Dad.

Think husband material can’t be sexy? The men of the new 2013 Nice Jewish Guys Calendar are out to prove once and for all that niceness and hotness are not mutually exclusive.

“I think it’s about time for us”, creator Adam Cohen said of his project. “What happened was that I realized I was now carrying the torch for all the nice guys who get passed up in the bar, are still good to their moms, and are a good catch, but the women just don’t know it yet”. Having taken longer than I’d like to admit to notice my own nice guy right in front of my nose, I say: *Applause!*

Get ‘em while they’re hot (and still single!)–You can have your very own Nice Jewish Guys Calendar for under eight dollars (and just in time for Chanukah)! If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge, you can just watch the teaser video after the jump, but be warned — once you see the puppy-cuddling, your Magic Mike DVD may become utterly obsolete.

Hey Ladies! ‘Magic Mike’ Is Trying to Woo You With Stripper Moves

There’s a male stripper movie coming out today called Magic Mike. Oh you’ve heard? Because Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, and the werewolf from True Blood have each been on every TV show in existence to show off their sexy dancing? That’s a fact.

The movie is banking on female appeal to win at the box office this weekend, and so far the strategy seems to be a sound one. Fandango reported earlier this week that ticket sales are going gangbusters. The movie made $2.1 million at midnight showings last night.

And according to a Fandango survey of 1,000 people, 82 percent of respondents (gender not specified) are planning to see it this weekend and 87 percent are planning to see it with a group of women. So it’s not just a couple of tickets, but big whooping groups of ladies who want to see sweaty beefcakes take off as much at that R rating will allow.
