    Fhm and Zoo mags are funny. Its interesting to compare that of the 'Lads' mag to the typical 'Girls' mag.
    I always look at the FHm top 100 sexist women though.. Its need to know information. Obviously

    TBH I only ever buy Nuts and Zoo because they have fit women, and of course.. comedy and sport. Its good for about a half an hour read and then just a flick through for the pictures, but there is a website which has the whole of Nuts and Zoo scanned in every week, so I just look at it on there.

    Yeah you only buy nuts or zoo for the pictures and comedy!


    Loaded has some really interesting, non girl related articles.

    In one of our english lit classes we compared girls mags and guys mags... it was an interesting lesson (espically for the year 7 that was sent into our room to do work half way through!)

    Yeah, some of you lot need to get off you're high horses and appreciate that people don't look for "everything" in a £5 magazine. Yeah, beer, girls and cars aren't all that guys want, but the magazine isn't catering to everything a guy wants.

    Do guys only want computers? No? Then let's start talking down about technology magazines. They're good for a laugh. The Die Hard films aren't amazing pieces of filmwork, but they are good to zone out to and watch for 2 hours while turning off the brain.

    Technology? I buy PS2 mags if this counts? For 5 quid you want something to entertain you, and not just a few pics of a girl in a bikini. Which you can get online for free.

    You want comedy, sport and anything else they can decide to include. And then you have the pictures. I dont buy PC magazines because they are a total rip off and I have never seen one for less than £6.50 and there are better things to spend my money on than that.

    used to get FHM, for the girls and the quite interesting/funny articles, but lately its become more of a advertising mag than anything else, but in a weird sort of way you do get to realise how certain parts of the male population are drawn to buying certain products....

    now its mroe about the T3/Stuff magazines, simply cos they are more gritty and less repetitive

    At uni we bought Nuts for the excellent TV guide, and to wind up the girls, who hated it being left in our living area. It's good for a laugh, takes about half an hour to read, and for anyone who says its porn for losers-get real-that's what the internet is for (and it's free!).

    I buy Nuts cos I like half an hours lite relief (no pun intended). If I wanted anything heavier I'd get Prospect, The Economist or a paper.

    I used to buy FHM, but dont like it much now ^^^ agrees with Kerching, Loaded is much better bought it this month and i will continue to buy it.
    Never interested in the fashion parts of FHM
    Zoo and Nuts are not really worth it.
    I don't buy much top shelf porn, but that is more due to not having much cash.

    FHM can have some really interesting 5 page long articles (for example, on the BTK killer and on professional card sharks) but lets face facts:

    97% of men aged 16-24 reguarly...... 2.4% of this age set can't..... leaving a very small proportion that don't. not every1 has girlfirends, therefore they offer release to the masses. i salute u FHM.

    p.s. i don't actually buy them... saving for uni and all... but if i had money i would... and yes FHM 100 sexiest is a must buy IMO.

    I know, it's funny! Esp. how they have these random little facts (do they have those in the UK? They do here in Australia I should know, I was in it a month ago and was sent the copy :p: ) at the bottom of the page, where no1 else would think to look. Some of the facts are absolutely hilarious, e.g. *insert certain famous person* who writes smiley faces on his knee so he doesn't get lonely :rolleyes: And other amusing tidbits

    i read some crap zoo/nuts article recently (didn't pay for it meself) about abby titmuss's fantasies. it was supposed to be sexy but it just made her sound illiterate and thick (if she did write it at all). if she wasn't in them the magazines would probably be better-at least a bit.

    If you don't like it don't read it.
