'When it comes to health, women remain pivotal in encouraging men to be self-aware,' said Hannah Crabtree, Communications Manager at the Everyman Campaign. 'Cosmopolitan's Naked Centrefolds have consistently proven to be a fun and effective way of raising awareness of a very serious issue. Through its Centrefolds activity, Cosmopolitan has helped raise vital funds for the 37,000 men a year diagnosed with male cancer.'

The Everyman Campaign is run by The Institute of Cancer Research to raise awareness of, and funds for research into, male cancer at the Everyman Centre - Europe's first and only centre dedicated to male cancer research.

Great charity, very brave boys....!!!! Don't forget to look at the auction and bid if you can.
The Fear
Too many pics. Disgusting how these men sell themselves, even for charity. I am strongly offended to see naked men used as meat to satisfy the cravings of women.
storagematt
i bet you will be able to get the other half to sign up and account and comment now pompey4me :-)
pompeyrug
yep brave blokes all in a good cause, hats off to them - who's up for a vital pompey one for charity then...
pompeyrug
James is definately not a brazilian. Ask your wife to explain if you don't understand.
frattonaussie
We could do a get your bellies out for the VP version! Not sure it would raise too much though.
sneakay
Well done to them. Good cause. Seriously chaps, don't forget to check your nadgers now and again....and those of us of a certain age should get the old prostate looked at. Don't think it only happens to others. The whole point of it is to raise awareness amongst blokes JUST LIKE US.
NinjaTim
Echo that thought Tim and sneakay you are definitely right there.
eastneydave
Joking aside, well done chaps for reminding us of the seriousness of the issue.
storagematt
What colour did he dye it this time!!!

I don't think there's any comment I can make that wouldn't be very sexist indeed. Just to say I've already had this magazine for over a week and very nice it is too! Are there other men other than Jamo in it?
tracyc
Rug, She's printed off the photo. She thinks it's disgusting!! So disgusting that she has hidden it under her pillow! (watch your e-mail!)
pompey4me
and now she's been out and bought the magazine!
pompey4me
I think we ought to have a "Portsmouth" Players Charity calendar. I think we have enough talent now to sell loads (and I'm not talking about football). I wouldn't mind looking at Sylvain Distin in his birthday suit each day!
