Seven Unsexy Mothers 5,000 Unsold Calendars

Friday, April 18th, 2008

These drop-dead-sexy 7 sacrificed their dignity and $16,000 in an attempt to raise some money for their children’s school.

November 2006, hideously sexy Spanish middle-aged moms posed for an erotic calendar for a fund raiser in hopes of building a recreation center for the kids, but are left with 5,000 copies!!!

The ladies posed for photos in Christmas garb, with umbrellas, and one mother posed with a shotgun, covering only her hairy parts with a suggestive fox fur-pelt. The photos were made into a calendar for the times, but unfortunately, like all calendars, this one had a date; set for the year 2007. The women are clearly better at being sexy than they are smart, as the amateur publishers missed out on the Christmas shopping rush, due to advertising woes and a miscue with a distributor. Now the sales have dried up and they owe the printer $16,000.

“The sad part for us is figuring out what to do with them because it is not something you can recycle,” said Rosa Garin, 36, one of the models in Serradilla del Arroyo, a village of 400 people in northern Salamanca province.

Miss October says, “Nobody remembers the villages. Everybody comes and says, ‘Wow, this is so pretty, what lovely countryside, you live so well here,’ but then they don’t help you at all. They give you absolutely nothing.” Itziar Zamarreno is Miss October, a 40-year-old town councilor who posed wearing the fur pelt.

“I do not like to hunt. I do not like to kill things. But we had to do something representative,” she said.

The plight of the mothers of Serradilla del Arroyo resurfaced recently because the distributor filed a complaint alleging they were behind on payments and local media picked up the story.

We know an unsexy Spanish man that would have jumped at the chance to help these mother’s from his native country, along with their dignity, they would only have to give up their soul.
