Some women (and men) like their Jewish men naughty, not nice. At least, that’s the premise behind the call that went out on Craigslist seeking Jewish men willing to pose for a calendar that will show “the sexy side of Judaism.”

This new “Naughty Jewish Boys” calendar is meant as an alternative to the “Nice Jewish Guys” calendar and other examples of popular culture that allegedly emasculate Jewish men, according to its creator Duncan Pflaster. In his call last week for models, Pflaster, a New York theater professional, made clear he is looking for “men willing to pose shirtless, in underwear, or tastefully nude.”

But that doesn’t mean that he’ll entertain applications only from men with ripped abs and chiseled jawbones. “Chubby/hairy ok,” he posted. He’ll pay $50 per hour and previous modeling experience is not necessary. And get this—“yarmulkes and payos” [are] a plus.”
