If you've ever had any curiosity about how photogenic Anthony Weiner's crotch is, you're having a great week or so. (The answer, by the way, is "Not one-one hundredth as photogenic as he seems to think it is.")

Weiner, who's taken a leave of absence from the U.S. House of Representatives to deal with his embarrassing habits, has given a bad name to sexy photographs of politicians. So we're here to remedy that, with ten hot shots of duly elected public officials. Five men, five women. Some of it might be NSFW, depending on where you work, and some of it you may disagree with.

10. Yulia Tymoshenko Ukraine's prime minister off-and-on for the past six years, Tymoshenko is famous for her distinctive hairstyle, which has a bit of Princess Leia in it. Here she shows off her motorcycle mama side.

9. Aaron Schock Illinois Representative Aaron Schock first gained internet fame for wearing the gayest outfit any straight man has ever worn to an outdoor party. A teal belt!!! But as this photo shows, he does take better pictures.

8. Anna-Maria Galojan Anna-Maria Galojan is an Estonian politician. An Estonian politician who has posed for Playboy.

7. Vladimir Putin Russia's Vladimir Putin is a manly man, and he loves to make sure everyone knows it. Dude must hate shirts -- he's been photographed topless countless times. He's also a judo expert. Plus he's got the Russian mafia with him, so all in all his middle name is danger, but women dig that.

6. Mara Carfagna This may sound difficult to believe, but Silvio "Bunga Bunga" Berlusconi appointed Mara Carfagna to work under him. She's his Minister for Equal Opportunity, although he has noted that if he wasn't married, he would marry her, something for which his wife demanded and got a public apology.

Priot to her post, Carfagna worked as a model, Putin-style.

5. Barack Obama It's no longer a Cold War arms race between the U.S. and Russia, it's a topless-photo race, and we don't even want to think which side has a missile gap. Here Obama does his part for American exceptionalism.

4. Angela Merkel Sure, this is only "sexy" if you've got a strong GILF tendency, but still -- how many female heads of state get shot in the nude? Germany's Angela Merkel was a victim of the paparazzi while on holiday, but obviously she's pretty carefree about where she changes in and out of her bathing suit.

Plus, she cleans up nice, if you've got a strong motorboat-a-GILF tendency.

3. Scott Brown Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown famously posed for Playgirl, making him the American equivalent of Estonia's Anna-Maria Galojan, which is a mighty thing to aspire to.

2. Hillary Clinton When this shot was taken, critics accused the Clintons of staging it, even though they said they were unaware of any photographer shooting them. Hillary also argued the cogent point that no woman in her 40s would ever knowingly pose for a swimsuit shot from behind. We're pretty sure Bill would have put on a shirt too.

1. JFK There are many reasons to like this picture -- Grandma copping a feel, Kennedy focusing like a laser on the only good-looking woman in the shot, the seemingly panicked woman on the left. Plus, unlike Anthony Weiner, he's not grabbing his crotch.
