Sex, Silliness In the Year of Publishing Shamelessly

[quote]Maxim, the popular men’s mag, published a fitness article on how to get in shape by beating people up. It was illustrated by drawings of a muscular yuppie punching, kicking, stomping and strangling a man who looked exactly like Mahatma Gandhi.

Glamour ran a story called “A day in the life of his penis,” which was narrated in the first person by the eponymous organ: “What about me?” it whined. “My needs? My hopes and dreams?”

AARP, the magazine for folks over 50, published a guide to “Viagra Etiquette.” It suggested that guys inform their dates that they use the drug but urged them not to swallow the pill in front of the woman: “It’s about as romantic as showing her your gallbladder scar.”
