The star, who is currently on tour with The X Factor, stripped off completely for part of Cosmopolitan's Everyman centrefold campaign.
Calling on his inner Dita Von Teese, Rylan knelt proud and tall in the glass while covering his crown jewels with his hand.
But while he made it look easy, a lot of preparation had gone into the Essex star's appearance. We all know how Rylan loves an excuse to pamper himself!
"I did a good bit of prep for the shoot, making sure everything was trim and proper," Rylan told Cosmo. "I even had a little shave of the nipples!"
He added: "It's important to look after yourself on the inside as much as on the outside.
"I found one when I was younger – I was really scared, but I went to the doctor and it was all fine. It might not have been if I hadn't spotted it early, though."
Cosmopolitan's March issue is on sale now. Behind the scenes footage of Rylan's shoot can be viewed at www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/rylan
