A Homemade ’80s Beefcake Calendar With Men From The Street Doing House Chores Goes Viral On Twitter (11 Pics)

There comes a moment in people’s lives where it becomes extremely interesting to see how our parents and grandparents used to live when they were our age or even younger, what were their hobbies, or what funny things they used to come up with. Having this in mind, one Twitter user @fabiansociety decided to share his findings with others online. These included some pictures from a beefcake calendar dated back in the 1980s. What made it extraordinary was the fact that this calendar was created by his mom and her sisters, who showed how a simple yet daring idea can turn into something professional-looking and hilarious even after many years.

The man started his now-viral thread with 61K likes by stating that back in the ‘80s, his mom and her sisters made a calendar called “Every Woman’s Fantasy”. This calendar featured various good-looking men doing household chores such as washing dishes, vacuuming, folding laundry, ironing clothes, cleaning windows, etc. The very first page of the calendar of the year 1988 stated that it portrays “Real men doing what real women wish they’d do.”

In the thread, the man revealed more details about this calendar. Despite it looking like a professionally made publication ready to be distributed for the masses, it was actually created by his mom and her sisters who also received some help from their mom. It was shared that the men in the calendar were “randomly” approached by them, later revealing that some men in the pictures were in fact models, but they mainly invited good-looking men who weren’t actual models, so that the calendar would also feature some “regular hot dudes.”

It all started as a simple project where the women did everything by themselves: trying to find the right men, setting the scenes, and finding the needed props, with their mom, the Twitter user’s grandmother, taking pictures. Later she was “promoted” to a director and given her own director’s chair.

In order to find men suitable for this project, they even made professional cards and handed them to men, so that they could come and try their luck. Even though this project didn’t take off to extent that these calendars were sold in numerous copies, it seemed to be a fun activity for the women at that time and a great thing to remember now. According to the Twitter user, what he learned from this story is that you can do whatever you want as long as you have your mind set on it, without having much experience or a lot of additional perks.
