Firefighter beefcake calendar banned

The emergence of a naked firefighter in a lurid video has prompted a ban against New York City Firefighters making any more beefcake calendars.

Future editions of the wildly popular FDNY calendar, which last year raised more than $150,000 for the department, were banned Friday by Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta.

Scoppetta acted after a "Guys Gone Wild" video emerged of firefighter Michael Biserta, 22, stripping naked before several enthusiastic women in 2004, The New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Biserta, a second-year firefighter in Brooklyn, posed shirtless before the Statue of Liberty in the 2008 "Calendar of Heroes." The 2008 FDNY calendar, featuring Biserta will remain on store shelves, will be the last "Heroes" calendar published, Scoppetta said.

Below are some stills of the boy's piece of meat that has caused the controversy..

Biserta joined the FDNY after the video was filmed and, therefore, will not face any discipline, The Daily News reported.
