The best part of autumn isn’t the cooler weather, the falling leaves or the pumpkin spice-everything — it’s the different groups marketing their sexy calendars for the coming year. In the past, we’ve enjoyed calendars featuring naughty priests, hot Chinese firefighters and men dressed as fairy tale creatures, one of our longtime favorites has always been the Dieux du Stade calendar with artsy photos of nude athletes.
Now, the hunky French sportsmen are back with the Dieux du Stade 2018 calendar. Dieux du Stade literally means “Gods of the Stadium”, and this year’s installment shows why. It has 21 athletes displaying heir divinely athletic bodies in the buff.
Usually the calendar features these hunks in classic black-and-white, but this year the calendar will be in color with a retro disco theme. The photos will show the men bathed in colored light and holding mirrored and sparkling sports balls.
Prepare to sweat while watching the Dieux du Stade 2018 teaser video:
The calendar costs $34 (€29 or £25) and its proceeds go towards the French group, Le Cancer du Sein, Parlons-en! (Breast Cancer, Let’s Talk About It!).
Here’s a sampling of Dieux du Stade‘s shots from their 2018 calendar. You will like them.

In its own way, Dieux du Stade also invites gay and bisexual men to participate in sports, if even just as spectators. That’s especially important considering that a 2015 study of 9,500 gay, straight and bisexual athletes found that 80% to 90% viewed athletics as hostile to LGB people.
