Gorgeous Naked Athletes, Male and Female: ESPN's Body Issue Nails ItDodai Stewart7/09/13 2:20pmFiled to: espn the magazinemag hagnuditysportsbody issueKerri Walsh JenningsColin KaepernickTarah GiegerSydney Lerouxgary playerphotographymaghag2238EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkEveryone — black, white, Latin, young, old, pregnant, man, woman — is naked in the 2013 ESPN Body Issue. It must be said: Progress has been made. The first Body Issue in 2009 featured tennis champ Serena Williams naked on one cover, but alternate covers that same year pictured male athletes either partially clothed or just showing off their chests — not same level of nudity as a topless woman. While Serena Williams and triathlete Sarah Reinertsen were completely naked, NFL star Adrian Peterson's thighs were covered, and both NBA star Dwight Howard and NASCAR racer Carl Edwards were shot from the waist up. (MMA powerhouse Gina Carano was topless but wearing short shorts.) ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
