Rugby superstar Sacha Harding took his clothes off for a photo shoot for Gay Times, a U.K. magazine.  He took his clothes off for a cause, though.  Harding stripped in support of Elton John’s AIDS foundation.

Harding says he was honored to get the opportunity to bare it all to do his part in raising awareness and “ultimately save lives.”

The super sexy rugby player is one of 54 men to appear in the magazine’s annual “naked issue.”

The Elton John Aids Foundation supports innovative HIV prevention programs and efforts that help eliminate stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS.  The foundation also offers services for those living with the virus.
