Back in 2016, bail bondsman Joshua Varozza decided to combat all of the negativity in the world the only way he knew how: with humor. With the help of his friend and photographer Tami Bears, he struck “seductive” poses for the camera clad in patriotic attire... and the "Dudeoir" (dude + boudoir) was born.
Tami, who had done a number of female pin-up shoots before, thought it would be fun to do similar poses with a man. "I didn't want your typical 19-year-old Abercrombie model," she said "I wanted a Duck Dynasty. logger, like a man-man." She not only wanted women to love it but wanted men to be in on the laugh as well.
So many people asked her about Josh's photos that they decided to make a calendar. Josh didn't expect much, but the light-hearted photos struck a chord with people across the country--and not just because the photos were funny. People were touched by Josh’s comfort in his own skin and how he embraced every part of himself. Josh became a role model for people struggling to love themselves, and it effectively changed his life as he knew it.
To their surprise, sales of the calendar took off. "It didn't seem right keeping the money for ourselves", Josh reflected, "so we decided to reach out to a local veterans group called Wheeler's for the Wounded." This group takes wounded veterans out on 4x4 excursions and helps people in their home community of Sacramento, CA.
Josh has eased into his newfound notoriety and has developed a healthy perspective. "You've got one life, one skin," he reflected, "just love it, man, take your pants off, and hug someone."
