Naked For A Cause 2008: Exclusive Pics, Giveaway And Interview With Daniel Conn!

Naked For A Cause 2008

Naked For A Cause 2008

The Naked For A Cause calendar is a limited edition, 19-month, 30-page wall calendar packed with ripped Aussie football studs wearing next to nothing. Proceeds from the calendar go to The McGrath Foundation, a charity supporting women living with breast cancer.

Photographer Pedro Virgil has very generously shared these exclusive pics with us - they've never been seen before! Also, one of the hotties in the calendar, Daniel Conn from the Gold Coast Titans, has given us an exlusive interview! Before you get stuck into reading Daniel's interview you might want to win one of the three copies of the calendar that we have to give away!

To be in the draw, simply post below your 25-words-or-less description of what you'd do with a naked Australian footballer for a day.

DNA Exclusive Interview With Daniel Conn
DNA: Why did you decide to do the calendar?
Daniel: Basically because of the cause. It’s for the McGrath Foundation. They raise money for breast cancer support and it seemed like a good thing to do and a lot of the boys were keen.

What was it like stripping down for the camera? Did you get nervous?
No, I didn’t get nervous. Pedro and the crew were all really professional about it so it was all good.

What do you do to stay in shape?
We train seven days a week at the moment. It involves stuff like wrestling, weights, running, triathlon and swimming. We’ve got to watch our diets as well, but when you’re training as much as we do it doesn’t really matter too much what we put in our bodies because we burn it off eventually.

Do you care that gay guys are going to buy the calendar?
No, I’m cool with that. I’m pretty comfortable with my sexuality but it’s a bit of a laugh.

Would you ever pose for a gay mag?
I haven’t really thought about it… Yeah, I’d give it a go.

Do women throw themselves at you because you’re a footy player?
No. I wish. They all say they do but it doesn’t happen.

Have you had any freaky fan moments?
I had an older woman chase me down the street to sign the calendar the other day. All my mates were around so it was a little embarrassing.

Do you have any gay mates?
I’ve got some girlfriends that have gay mates and they seem like pretty funny blokes. I’d call them my mates, yeah.

How would you and your team react if one of your teammates came out?
I reckon we’re all pretty understanding. We’d be good about it all. It would probably be a bit weird at first but I think we’d all build a bridge and get over it.

What’s the most memorable moment in your sporting career so far?
Probably making my debut for the Bulldogs.

You recently did a commercial with Tara Reid. What was it like working with her?
She was a pretty cool chick in the end. I thought she’d be a bit of a clichéd sort of American bimbo but she was really cool. We got along really well.

Who would you rather sit next to on a plane: Jessica Simpson, Lisa Simpson or OJ Simpson?
Jessica Simpson seems like a bit of a bimbo, so I’d probably go for OJ Simpson and have a bit of a yarn.

What’s the gayest CD you own?
I’ve got a bit of Elton John in there somewhere so that’d probably take the prize.

I need a personal trainer, but, sadly, do not take direction well. I'd need lots of hands on training and much repetition and demonstration.

Remove clothing. Oil him up. Rub him down. Bring him close over and over. Make him scream. And ride the wild thing all night long!

I bought and paid for my calendar on 8/11. Still no sign of it. The email says "Your Item(s) will now be processed and shipped in the next dispatch." with no indication how often these "dispatches" are.

It's a really shoddy sale service they're providing, money-for-charity or not.

Oh, and this is after repeatedly trying to pay via Amex, which is a choice in the drop-down payment menu, before realising that in tiny text on the resulting page it says "this merchant does not accept that form of payment". Then don't have it in the bloody list!!

Apart from all that, "hot men, mm yum, yadda yadda yadda" :P.

I'd try not to talk to his crotch, because that's not where his insightful words would come from; they'd surely come from his big heart.

I had the same issue after purchasing my calendar at the website, only to see it at newsagents before I'd received my copy.

After what seemed like 50 e-mails back and forth I eventually received it after asking for my money back (though it took nearly 5 weeks!!).

But the biggest surprise was that the person I was writing to couldn't see why I found it annoying that shops had been supplied copies to sell before on-line sales were fullfilled.

But in saying that, I do think it's an awesome product, just a painfull process to receive it.

I'd keep him in my room all day and give him quite a workout!

posted by renthead24 on 25-Nov-2007 4:03

Firstly I'd need him for 2 day.
Day 1: to fly him to London
Day 2: Stick a bra over his manhood and get him to pose almost naked in London's west end to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Then to thanks him, get him blind drunk and show him some "real" London hospitality!

Of course to keep him comfortable it would have to be on the QT, and then I would get us a nice hotel room. Next day we would both be smiling, and be great friends - and you know I would never tell what went on between the sheets.

Drop to my knees and .....
shave the boys pubes with his team's name ....
then watch him take a shower with the rest of the team!

I'd let James Aubusson in anytime, to touch tongues. Not talk much. If we speak,
must be in the sentence.

Fix him his favorite late breakfast, give him a massage, wash his hair for him. Give him an (optional) shave, wash out his favorite shorts

I would talk about their achievements first, what it's like being in the spotlight and how they really take care of their hot bodies!!!! OMG!!

I know the Boys who did the calendar really well. and In response to Damo"s comment....
The boys runa very tight business - unfortunately they had problems with Aus post and a certain courier company that was delivering the calendars at the time.... Theres no need for bitchy comments - you got your calendar and as well as I did- and what an amazing calendar it is! one of the best I have every seen - the quality of paper, the sexy images... it is definately a must have and woudl be an awesome christmas present!
Thanks guys at NFAC - looking forward to the next one.
