Would You Buy a Nudie Mag With Pics of Hot Guys?

A couple years ago, I found a cool magazine at my local used bookstore. It was called Sweet Action and billed itself as "Porn for Girls." It was basically a magazine with naked and seminaked pictures of real guys you might know — tattooed, a little dirty, and skinny rather than buff. Whether or not you find that sexy, the fact is, the guys were amateurs, just people the two women who started the magazine knew or approached on the street. In addition to subverting the "men are subjects and women are objects" paradigm, they managed to take photos in which the men were sexualized but also still seemed like people, rather than just fantasies. "There's never really been a way for women to have permission to be boy crazy and still admire the guys as equals," said one of the co-founders, Micole Taggart. "We respect the guys that we're lusting after." I can't find anymore copies of Sweet Action and don't know if it's still around, but I was curious . . . Would you ever buy a nudie mag with pics of hot guys?

I am woman who loves men, but for some reason I dont find naked men sexy or even the least bit appealing. I do however, own several playboy's...Hellcatrumble is right in saying that its great that this gen is ok with he idea with women being sexual and enjoying sex, with out being labeled as sluts or whores, I would like to add. We still have a ways, to go but we are making progress...

I'm really digging this 'porn for girls' thing. I love how this generation dumps that cliché that women don't enjoy sex. Next, we need a magazine with 'real women' in it.The tattoos and 'normalcy' is really hot, but these men look like crackheads. YUK! I don't want a Prada model.

If the emaciated tattooed guy is any indication of what's in there, the answer's no. My crackhead neighbor is better looking!

hmmm....not my thing. but in all honesty, if a friend had it and it actually had decent article in it, i'd read it. i used to read hubby playboys when he had them years ago for the articles. they used to have some good ones.

Nah. All I can imagine is seeing some guy's picture and then being introduced to him at some later date. "Where do I know you from..... Oh yeah! By the way, my name is Fuzzles, and I'm a perv! Nice package, and nice to meet you" ;)

Undecided - I think I'm like kool. I'll thumb through it but not buy it. If someone got me a subscription though, I wouldn't turn it down.

Sure, why not. I like that they feature real guys. Like mo p said, I don't fantasize about playgirl or Chippendale looking guys. Tons of muscles, fake tan, and less body hair than me? No thanks.

I bought all the Sweet Action mags while they were still in print (alas, no more). The great thing was the normality of the guys. They were just real, good-looking guys that you'd want to hook up with, not the super buff, fake-tanned, and over-waxed guys you see in Playgirl and Chippendale ads. Those are the guys I could never fantasize about.

No. I can't really see the appeal in looking at random people I don't know. I don't even like many guys who I actually see in person (clothed of course).

I like Men but I don't find the ones in magazines like that attractive. I'm not really into naked men either I kinda like leaving a little to the imagination.
