Now I’ll Ask YOU One… pt.13

  1. This letter reminds me of something I’d forgotten. When I was in high school I did some collage based artwork stuff & finding copies of magazines to use for free was always a bit tough (pre-internet & pre-recycling) & one time my sister gave me a pile of Glamours & Cosmos. Holy crap, I was not prepared at all for the sex articles. To be honest I don’t know if they are really as graphic as I recall in my mind, but it seems like even Maxim (even after it made the shift from weirdo men’s culture mag to pictures of semi-naked semi-celebrities) wouldn’t have been able to print parallel equivalent articles. Of course I guess these days kids would just look up this info on the internet anyhow.

  2. Looking at those fashion covers they have in the grocery store checkout isles always had me confused, ever since I was a wee lad, all the way up until today. The titles of their sex articles plastered all over the cover with sofcore porn imagery and I’m thinking “seriously? You don’t want to be seen as a piece of meat by predatory men?” These days my conspiracy brain kicks in and I wonder how much of this isn’t intentional culture creation to break down the family unit. And yeah, the internet… I guess those old Glamours & Cosmos have nothing on them, eh?
