Gold Medalist Swimmer Bares Butt, But Will He Bare It All?

Ricky Berens

During the World Swimming Championships in Rome on Sunday, Olympic gold medalist Ricky Berens turned up the heat when he dove off the starting block, ripped the back of his swimsuit, and gave the audience quite a show. Despite this em-bare-assing wardrobe malfunction, Berens kept right on swimming.

Now that we’ve gotten a sneak peak, it’s pretty obvious to us where that butt belongs: starring in one of our iconic “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ads. So, while Ricky (and his bum) have the spotlight, we’ve asked him to consider joining others like Steve-O and fellow Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard, who have gotten naked to help the animals who are skinned alive for fashion.

I have a feeling that Ricky is going to like the idea of adding “champion for animals” to his growing list of accomplishments, but feel free to leave a comment and let him know you want to see that booty in full glory. If he agrees, we’ll be sure to post pictures for all you ladies.

    I think it is a fine idea. You have got to capitalize on this unfortunate ‘event’ for Ricky. I did not even know his name until his lost his trunks! Now he will have the chance to be in the ranks of the other great folks who pose for PETA. As for not liking the ads sweety it is a good way to get people’s attention for a good cause. Lighten up.

    I really don’t like these ads. I am against fur but I do not like seeing naked people on billboards when I commute to work. Most guys like these ads since they’re perverts but that’s why I don’t like them.
