"I feel sexy and attractive so that's the way I act," says Mikey. "I don't see why I can't pose up for photos like any other male model.
"I'm not normally one to take my clothes off but for the calendar it just felt natural.
"It was very liberating actually," says Mikey who is posed on all fours (August), as an angry bull (May) and with a Christmas hat (December).
"I was completely overwhelmed by the response to the 2008 Chubby Mikey Calendar," he adds. "I actually had to refund orders because my supplies were depleted."
