It’s not often you buy an issue of a regular, well-written, beautifully put together mainstream gay magazine and then have to go and finish yourself off in the bathroom, but that is the predicament we found ourselves in when the current Naked Issue plopped itself onto our mats (we’re subscribers you know!)
Let’s leave aside all the writing (great as ever!) and concentrate – in great detail, maybe even with the help of a magnifying glass – first on the cover shoot with Blue. Three of them are to simply expire for, the fourth is alright. In these pictures, not only do you get them in all their pubey, arse-cracky glory, you also get flashes of scrotum. For which we thank the baby Jesus.
Also noteworthy further into the magazine is the fashion shoot made up largely of Brazilian boys tugging their underpants about in such a way that you can see their bollocks.
It’s called art lads and gentlemen. And we’re big fans. Actually bigger than when we started reading the magazine.
