MAGAZINES: EY! MEGA MAGATEEN #8
Pantybunchers who have a heart attack over the magazine industry’s arguably unhealthy fetish for young flesh might want to have a defibrillator on hand before opening up the Summer 2012 issue of EY! Mega Magateen. Celebrating what publisher Luis Venegas (whose other publication, the transphilic fashion magazine Candy, would surely leave those same pearl-clutchers D.O.A.) describes as “the magnificent vitality, energy, and power of young male adulthood,” the 124-page, oversized glossy is filled with enough teenage prettyboys to fill a casting couch. So is it soft-core porn? Well, it does include a fold-out centerfold, but we’ve never seen fashion credits in the pages of Penthouse. And with a print run of only 1,000 copies, this is one collector’s edition we wouldn’t advise keeping under your mattress. Includes a free “Teens Do It” t-shirt with every issue. $49, available at select American Apparel stores and at byluisvenegas.com.
