Filament Magazine Wants to Show Naked Men in State of Arousal

Nudie Mag Wants to Show Men in All Their, Ahem, Glory

It's hard out there for a magazine full of naked men — or, maybe not so hard. I was already skeptical about Filament, the recently launched erotic periodical for women. Now the magazine is wondering whether it should print photos of males who are clearly aroused.

Filament aims to be artful and appealing to women, setting itself apart from Playgirl. But if it prints images of erections, does it cross the line from art into pornography? See what Filament has to say about the matter.

According to the magazine's website:

Filament only prints explicit images when these are of high photographic and erotic quality, and clearly designed for women — we won't ever be putting hard c*cks on every page. The problem is, all the printers that a small, independent magazine like Filament can afford have said they won't print images of the male of the species in a state of obvious arousal.

While I can see how such photos might cross the line, it also seems odd that a magazine featuring sexy photos of men should ignore the fact that — let's face it! — the male genitalia looks very different during sexual activity than it does in its more natural state. What do you think? Would you want a magazine of naked men to feature erections or ignore them?

Good for you girl ( a nice slut) We guys who like to bare all enjoy the attention of girls like you. There's nothing nicer than be appreciated by a nice girl when you're nude. It's natural after all !

I tend to agree with Abnormal girlie. Naked men are great, but I want mine (by that I mean my husband) live and in person so I can get naked with him. Nothing wrong with looking at a magazine (and why should men have all that to themselves). I just prefer in person.

Saggy, flaccid penises are not particularly attractive. Men's magazines sell the fantasy that the woman staring provocatively at them is aroused and desires them. A woman's magazine with a saggy penis and a man pretending to be turned on is hardly sexy or erotic. Nor is it selling the fantasy. Whether Filament Photoshop's erections or finds real ones, it seems like a good marketing idea.

"It would be hard..." Yes, it would! I'm with the posters that feel that leaving something to the imagination is much sexier than having everything hanging (or standing) out.

I think an erect penis can be photographed artistically without being porn. It'd be hard, but it's certainly possible.

While I love a big ol penis, I think an erect penis is definitely moving into pornography. I agree with the towels and hot underwear tls. Much sexier.

I don't really want to see either. I find it much more of a turn-on to see a man in a low-slung towel or a pair of boxer briefs. The penis in and of itself just doesn't really do much for me. I mean, honestly, they're sorta goofy looking if you think about it.
