The 2014 ESPN: The Magazine “Body Issue” Is Here (Gallery)

espn body issue 2014 covers

Ever since they invented the internet, you can pretty much look at pictures of naked people whenever you want. However, if you’re a discriminating pervert who only wants to look at naked pictures of elite physical specimens, for that you have to wait until ESPN the Magazine releases it’s annual Body Issue.

Fortunately, your wait is now over. The sixth annual Body Issue is here. Or at least, it’s kind of here. Technically it doesn’t hit newsstands until July 11. However, ESPN and the various athletes appearing in the 2014 Body Issue have released enough photos on the interwebs to give us a pretty good idea of what to expect.

For those of you who are bad at counting (see the above photo?), this year there are six different covers to choose from. So once you figure out where to find an actual newsstand, you’ll get to choose between Jamie Anderson, Marshawn Lynch, Michael Phelps, Prince Fielder, Serge Ibaka, and Venus Williams.

But who else will you find inside? Well, here’s a list:

  • Venus Williams (Tennis)
  • Michael Phelps (Swimming)
  • Marshawn Lynch (Football)
  • Prince Fielder (Baseball)
  • Serge Ibaka (Basketball)
  • Jamie Anderson (Snowboarding)
  • Tomas Berdych (Tennis)
  • Aja Evans (Bobsledding)
  • Larry Fitzgerald (Football)
  • Omar Gonzalez (Soccer)
  • Coco Ho (Surfing)
  • Bernard Hopkins (Boxing)
  • Ginger Huber (Cliff Diving)
  • Hilary Knight (Hockey)
  • Angel McCoughtry (Basketball)
  • Travis Pastrana and Lyn-Z (Motocross and Skateboarding)
  • Amy Purdy (Snowboarding)
  • Megan Rapinoe (Soccer)
  • Jimmy Spithill (Yachting)
  • Nigel Sylvester (BMX)
  • Danyelle Wolf (Boxing)

And if by some chance your interest is still not piqued—or if you have no intention of buying the magazine but want to see some of the photos—here’s a small sampling:

But seriously, though, you should throw the publishing industry a bone and buy the magazine.
