Our most infamous calendar is BACK!

(and this time it comes with a butt version) 

There is nothing like the feeling of being naked. 

But being naked and ginger often causes a different type of reaction. We are not used to seeing a sexy ginger man with fiery, red pubic hair standing proudly before us. 

At Red Hot we are all about breaking down socially perceived flaws and smashing taboos. When we introduced our now infamous FULL FRONTAL calendar last year we have never had a response like it. 

So Red Hot Cocks is back for another year with a brand new cast of 12 ginger studs, showcasing all new fire crotches, copper knobs and ginger nuts. 

Yes, you heard that right. 12 full frontal, totally nude ginger nuts out and proud for 2019 (there are no censor bars in the calendar).

BABY GOT BACK....

And because Red Hot Cocks was such a runaway success, we figured you might like a butt version too.

This year we bring you live action direct from the locker room. There will be football players, rugby players, wrestlers, swimmers, hockey players, gym bunnies, baseball and basketball players, gymnasts and many, many more.

The world is a dark place, so brighten up your life with our two new, super colourful charity nude calendars of 12 ginger nuts or 12 ginger butts!

Shot by Red Hot photographer Thomas Knights and art director Elliott James Frieze, the calendars raise money for the Movember Foundation's testicular cancer and prostate cancer awareness campaigns.

"Ginger pubes are awesome and your life needs more colour" Thomas Knights

HOW DID WE GET HERE?

Red Hot is the brain-child of photographer Thomas Knights, a photography campaign renowned for pushing boundaries and creating dialogue in the ever-changing fashion industry while raising funds for good causes. Internationally acclaimed as a “global movement”, Red Hot began in 2013 and has since toured the world and gained unprecedented fame and recognition. In 2016 the project returned with British designer Elliott James Frieze for the ‘Red Hot II’ photography campaign, art book and exhibition that launched in Rotterdam and exhibited in Beers Gallery, London. Now in its 6th year with 6 calendars, 2 art books and a global exhibition under it’s belt, Red Hot’s mission is to ‘rebrand the ginger male stereotype’ and champion the idea we all should celebrate what makes us unique. As part of its diversity movement and global anti-bullying campaign, Red Hot has raised over £55,000 for various charities and good causes including The Diana Award and the Terrence Higgins Trust Our motto is: ‘be proud of who you are’

Risks and challenges

We are now in our 6th year and have created 6 successfully funded Kickstarter campaigns. Have a look at our previous campaigns by clicking our profile above.

Previously we have sent out rewards ourselves, but this year you will be able to track your shipment via our new fulfilment company partner keeping risks and challenges to a minimum.

We also have a tight turnaround, as the calendars will be shot and edited in just 4 weeks, printed in September, and delivered to the UK in October.

Luckily we have great partners in place ready to make this a reality.
