52 UK rugby players stripped off all their clothes for a calendar shoot to bring awareness to the epidemic of testicular cancer. A total of six teams participated in the charity event that will raise funds for Great Britain's Balls to Cancer.

The charity states on their website that their aim is to remove the taboo of talking about testicular cancer and to use their campaign as a way to educate men on prevention.

Not only is the calendar supposed to be a wake-up call for men to look for unusual lumps and bumps on their bodies, but also to speak on the idea of teams in the UK being more LGBT inclusive.

Men of all body types posed in locker rooms, on the field and in the showers with pride, knowing that they were bringing attention to a topic that few talk about. According to Cancer Research UK, one in two men will suffer from cancer in the UK during their lifetimes.
