It features a range of participants with varying disabilities including blindness, deafness, brittle bone disease and cerebral palsy. The calendar is free, though a £6 donation is suggested.

Jennie Williams is the CEO of Enhance the UK and posed for the calendar too.

She told HuffPo UK: "I started the 'Undressing Disability campaign' because all to often disabled people get ignored and desexualised, even 'babied'. They are frequently seen as people who just need looking after and not wanting or capable of having a active healthy sex life and loving relationship.

"The donations received from the calendar will go towards the inclusive sex education and relationships education (SRE) project we are running in collaboration with the leading youth sexual health educators Brook.

"Our aim is to provide relevant and practical SRE to young people and change the way society view sex and disability.
