GQ's sexy Glee cover and photo spread has caused quite a stir, and not just with hormonal guys.
The racy photos, which were posted online Tuesday, feature actresses Lea Michele and Dianna Agron in tarted-up, come-hither vixen mode; in one shot, Michele, wearing a top and underwear, is seated on a bench facing the camera with her legs spread open.
