Happy 2013. And what better way to track the calendar year than with a calendar of scantily clad models to grace your wall. And this year, the models won’t just be wearing bikinis—they’ll be covered in poop, as well.

That’s right. This year, a calendar has been released by the Fertile Earth Foundation featuring models covered in various forms of poo (worm, fish, etc). According to Buzzfeed, the ‘Ladies of Manure’ calendar was launched in an effort “to demystify defecation, encourage composting, and tell a story about manure and its importance.”

Although I wouldn’t exactly be thrilled with the idea of covering ourselves in feces, these models apparently didn’t have a problem with it. 

"I never thought it would be so easy to get girls naked and then so easy to get them covered in poop," said Lanette Sobel, executive director of Fertile Earth, who said many of the models in the calendar were already volunteers of the Fertile Earth Organization.

Sobel is aware of the fact that some people may find the images disturbing, she says that’s really the whole point. "The whole idea is to get people to think," she says. "Whether they're disgusted or supportive, it's fine either way."

The calendar launches January 18th.
