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?
