Five of England's top rowers agreed to strip naked for Blue September, a national cancer awareness campaign. This behind the scenes video might be not safe for work since there's butt cheeks galore and the hint of a winkie. No, if you find it, you don't win a prize.

For me, this wasn't so much a sexual titillation as it was something ... I hate to use the word "spiritual" but that's what it is ... these men are so young and beautiful, and the message about testicular cancer awareness fits so well ... it is so right for men, for any creatures, in the prime of health and vitality to want to hold onto it ... I so often call myself "an old fart" or "a dirty old man" but ... when I was younger, I did realize that my youth would not last forever, but when it is really gone, you fully realize how wonderful it once was ...

... and some people say that's the whole reason why we grow old, that it's a spiritual maturation process for us to be stripped away of our youth, our vitality, our agility, the sexual power of our beauty, our ease of movement ... and eventually we are stripped of life itself. Does this happen because there is no evolutionary mechanism to prevent it ... or is it a Divine plan? ... I have no answers. I only know it is both terrible and wondrous at the same time.
