Students in Saxony pose for erotic calendar

A coed group of students in Dresden have stripped for the latest “Geist is geil” (“Knowledge is Sexy”) calendar, which is ostensibly meant to promote higher education in the eastern German state of Saxony.

The calendar includes 24 students from the Technical University in Dresden in various states of undress. It has a male and a female side, depending on which way round you hang it.

Some of the pictures show the models in a vaguely academic setting – Mr February, for instance, is shown leaning against a chalkboard with his shirt open. But the other shots range from the more conventional (Ms November, mechanical engineering student Fanny, is pole-dancing), through the athletic (Mr January is indulging in his favourite pastime of kick-boxing), to the slightly seedy (an event management student is straddling a toilet) and the fantastical (Mr August is adopting a menacing pose as a Spartan warrior).

The calendar is the brainchild of photographer Toni Kretschmer, who is already taking applications for the 2013 edition. “It’s always hard to convince the men,” he told the Sächsische Zeitung newspaper. “The only conditions are that they have to be studying at a university in Saxony - and that they’re good-looking.”

Coincidentally, this month’s edition of German Playboy also featured a photo spread of “Germany’s most beautiful students” – though these are all female.

"Ms November, mechanical engineering student Fanny, is pole-dancing"

Ms. November isn't pole-dancing - she is using her mechanical engineering knowledge and empirical methods to determine if the pole is mounted according to DIN standards.

As an American, all I can say is these ladies are as pretty as any American babe!

Well, in my opinion, they are percentage wise, the most beautiful of all women.

I've been to Germany twice. It was rare to see an overweight woman. There were nice, tall, 5' 9'' women everywhere.

And a very attractive woman with intelligence is a really cool thing!

True logic guy: I watched a beautiful women yesterday out my window -:)parking her auto , she got exactly after 3 tries equal distance from the auto in front and rear.Then she checked her doors 4 times to see if they were locked, she looked at the auto from 3 different angles, walked about 50 meters away and turned and looked again.This is no joke. I couldn't help think what a nightmare she wold be to live with.
