Just thought I would post an update on the continuing men's magazine wars in North America.
As far as I can tell, here in North America it's just between MAXIM and PLAYBOY -- since FHM and Stuff are out of business and Penthouse and Hustler are absolute downmarket trash. I guess there is also that Aussie import Ralph, but who cares about that.
The folks at MAXIM recently announced its Hot 100 list and sexy supermodel Marisa Miller is Number One! I dunno about the rest of the list, but at least they got the top spot absolutely right.
You can tell which magazines have staffs full of straight males, just based on who they pick as the sexiest female! The guys at MAXIM sure know what to look for in a woman, while these other rags are clearly just guessing (Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, Katherine Heigl, zzzzz ).
In other news, tennis player Ashley Harkleroad is going to be the first pro tennis player ever to pose nude for Playboy. Before you criticize her and ask why the heck Playboy isn't getting someone better like Anna Kournikova, keep this in mind: Kournikova never won a darn thing either.
Here's a question I have for Hef: when is Marisa Miller going to be in Playboy?! She'd really class things up over there. (Can you tell that I like Marisa Miller?) That's the men's magazine wars for now.
