If you’re sexy and you know it, submit a photo to Think Atheist ASAP! We’re putting together a fund raising calendar for the website of our most lovely-looking ladies for 2010, and we need some steamy photos FAST. So if you’ve always wanted to be one of those lucky calendar girls, now’s your chance!

Here are the official rules:

1. NO NUDITY. This is very important and must be strictly adhered to. Be sexy and racy, but no full frontal nudity will be used in the calendar.

2. No full names will be put on the calendar to protect the privacy and safety of all the girls. Only a first name and the girl’s TA profile URL will be used. Girls may also choose to use a pseudonym for the calendar if they wish.

3. Girls may request a month to have their photo associated with, but we cannot guarantee that every girl will get the month they chose.

4. Submissions must be in by no later than December 17th, 2009 at 11:59 pm. We understand this is kind of soon, but we need to get the calendar done before the new year!

5. There are only 12 months, so only 12 girls will ultimately be chosen. All decisions are to be made by Think Atheist staff members and are final.

6. Only one photo submission per participant allowed. Choose it wisely!

To submit a photo, email it to thinkatheist@gmail.com as an attachment. Photos should be jpegs, in the biggest file size you can make. A suggested pixel size of twenty three hundred by eighteen hundred is recommended. Questions or comments? Drop us a line over at the forum:

We can’t wait to see what you guys send in! And as always, thanks for helping out the community here at Think Atheist.

Great idea Chelsea! The more people the merrier :).
Awesome, Chel!
I like the idea of including a variety of ages, sizes, styles etc. I think that would make the people who were bitching about the calendar happy too as they seemed to be concerned about objectification of women (probably specifically objectifying only stereotypically sexy women).

As a side note, if you are going to make a 2011 calendar...you should put out the call for photos way ahead of time so people can find a professional photographer to take quality photos. If I were to send in an image it would be of me in my wedding dress because that's all I have that looks good enough for publication (and I think the photography studio owns the printing rights so it probably can't be used anyway).

edit...found a picture from college I can send in. It's my profile picture only the hat part is red. It could represent all the closeted atheist women.
And that's where the creativity comes in on the part of the person/s compiling the pics for the calendar. Every pic could be incorporated in some month or other in a theme-appropriate way, right?! Your red hat pic could be on the Feb photo collage, for example...Subtle, yet fairly obvious.

If you all want to do it this way, what's the best call-to-action email blast we could send to the entire site to get the most women to respond before the deadline? We could add a disclaimer at the bottom of the eblast stating that we will do our best to get all photos submitted into the calender in time for publication (in case we get too many at the last moment to use). I'm thinking that a call-to-action email request that EVERY T|A woman interested in being in the calendar send in a pic (within the guidelines, of course) might be incentivizing enough.
Have you ever seen the skeptchic pin up calendars? They include men and women and each pose is artistically designed to be funny (like a nude male with his parts covered by a giant telescope). So it's a pin up...but it's also nerdy sexy. I think something like that could work for next year....when there is more time for people to get really good pictures made (this is assuming anyone is interested in going to that trouble....I don't think I'd have any made)
I want you on my calendar ;)
What a great idea! Maybe start a bit earlier next year though, eh? :)
With keen anticipation I clicked on the link,
Seeking a curious picture of an atheist I think,
Alas for I am not right,
I cant see the Light,
From the glare of the public does Newtonslight shrink.
I love that pic!
This is just a quick update. The response has been overwhelming with the submissions for this calender. If you have not already entered please get your high resolution picture (dimension wise) sent to ThinkAtheist@gmail.com

Thanks everyone for your support!
It seems to me that objectification of women is the intention here; the calendar is intended to show that there are ‘sexy’ or at least ‘attractive’ in the broadest politically correct sense, atheist women.

It follows in the footsteps of the Pirelli calendar and similar publications, promoting a product with sex, whether that be of the mind or of the body.

In reality, regardless of its ethics (or attempts to dampen down its motivation with apologism) it will probably attract the attention of both sexes. The majority of cover photographs on magazines for both men and women are female, these are the facts and I can’t be bothered to explore the reasons here.

The question is, do we think we should be morally and intellectually above using sex to sell things?

Is this a sacred cow, because of the undoubted suppression of the female over the centuries?

It is interesting to note that suppression of a female’s sexuality and right to choose what she can do with her body and her beauty is a key part of that oppression and still remains so today, Barbie Burka’s spring to mind.

How both women and men will come out at the end of this last century’s sexual revolution is of not inconsiderable interest.

Non Theists will need to play an important part in this debate, as let’s face it the theists have totally cocked it up.

I would recommend that all remain in the discussion and hold their corner, there are people to convince here and it is nice to have some areas where controversy rules consensus.

It makes one think we still have things to work out between us.
How about using quotes from our Quote Group to accompany these sexy photos?
