"This feels like a porn," Jaymes joked. I swear it actually did. But of course the Chippendales are not seedy—they're razzle-dazzle and wink-wink, fun and fantasy.

These two Chips are currently promoting a sizzling Chippendales 2012/2013 Sixteen Month Calendar with photography by John Ganun, out now, as well as their solo music careers and their goal to raise $250K to help Jaymes's desperately ill father. I also got a little Amazing Race dish out of them
