NEW YORK (AP) ” Victoria and David Beckham, aka Posh and Becks, strip down in steamy photos for the August issue of W magazine.

They strike a sultry pose for the cover of the issue, on newsstands July 20, but things get more seductive in a photo spread inside. Steven Klein’s photos show the pair in various states of undress ” kissing passionately, sunning themselves atop a car and having an intimate moment in the bedroom.

The 32-year-old soccer star and his wife, Posh Spice of the Spice Girls, will be seen in an NBC special, “Victoria Beckham: Coming to America,” to air Monday. It follows Beckham, 33, as she prepares to move from Europe to Los Angeles, where her husband will play for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer. (David Beckham appears briefly in the special, but viewers won’t see the couple’s three sons.)

“I think people are really going to see me for the first time,” Victoria Beckham tells the magazine. “I think they have this impression that I’m this miserable cow who doesn’t smile. But I’m actually quite the opposite.”

The couple, who were married in September 1999, got together in 1997 after meeting at a soccer game in London.

“I didn’t really know who he was,” she says. “He was always with his mom, dad and sister while a lot of the footballers were at the bar getting drunk. I could sense right from the start that David was a gentleman, and very family oriented, which is important because I’m the same.”

They also connect on a sartorial level.

“I’ve always had a liking toward clothes, but when I met Victoria, she directed me in the right way,” he says. “When she tells me something doesn’t look good, I believe her. We have a connection that way.”

Other than the recently announced Spice Girls reunion tour, Beckham has denied she’s planning to resurrect her showbiz career.

The Spice Girls tour is set to open Dec. 7 in Los Angeles, reuniting the five-member girl group that sold millions of records in the 1990s before breaking up in 2001.
