Last week I blogged about the imminent release of the annual Dieux du Stade Calendar for 2013! Now direct from the publisher in Paris I have some additional images from the calendar to share. This famous calendar is highly sought after all around the world for its naked portraits of the players from the Stade Français Paris rugby team. But what makes the calendar especially appealing to gay fans is that these incredibly sexy sportsmen are often pictured together − and in quite intimate, affectionate poses. Photographer Francois Rousseau is one of the most popular photographers / artistic directors who has worked on this calendar series. He was responsible for the versions in 2004, 2011, and 2012, and he has returned to shoot the 2013 calendar.
