The Not Very SFW Photos of the Year

Playboy may have gone soft on us, but the so-called “art” world never will.

Thankfully.

Quarterly and very cool lifestyle publication Monster Children hosts a highly respected annual photo competition. That competition involves six categories, the shortlists for which they released yesterday.

Those categories: action, lifestyle, music, student, travel and — for our purposes here today — girls.

Submitted by professional and amateur photogs from around the globe, these are the winning entries that had the editors over at MC all hot and bothered (tastefully, of course) over the past 12 months. You can find some of our favorite SFW submissions below. Check out the full release (including the NSFW selects) at your own risk.
