Forget ripped firefighters and hunky policemen – this hilarious calendar shows off the sexy side of New York’s TAXI DRIVERS.

The raunchy cabbies can be seen pulling poses that top models would be proud of – from posting with snakes to showing off their guns.

The calendar, now in its seventh year, will also features a selection of models that reflect the makeup of the city.

Of the 12 drivers featured, 11 are immigrants, originating from the likes of the Ivory Coast, Panama and Russia.

The calendar is the brainchild of New Yorkers Shannon and Phil Kirkman, and since it was first released has brought in nearly $70,000 (£54,000).

The money raised from the calendar goes to University Settlement, a non-profit that helps working immigrant individuals and their families with basic services in literacy, housing and senior programs.

Despite being New York-focused, previous versions of the calendar have sold in all 50 states and in more than 30 countries.

Phil said: “Like every year, what makes the experience special is getting to know the new drivers from diverse backgrounds, and helping them to discover their inner Fabio. 

“Without fail, there’s a moment during each shoot when the driver settles in and that’s when we capture the best looks. 

And we really have a good time with the drivers we invite back.

“Knowing their personalities and what they’re capable of makes our job easier and leads to some of our bolder photos – for example, returning cover man, Alex, with the 10-foot, 40-pound snake.”

Shannon added: ” The response to the calendar has been overwhelmingly positive. 

“We’ve heard so many funny stories from people who have given and received it as holiday gifts.”
