PoolBoy Magazine: A Local Source of Nude Dudes (NSFW)

... who you never really wanted to see nude in the first place.

Fair enough, the editors of PoolBoy Magazine, based in Phoenix, had to find guys who were willing to show off their junk for free (and seemingly without use of a fluffer), but there have to be more attractive ones out there ... and I'm speaking mostly above the belt.

Not to be shallow, I do appreciate true beauty, and beauty on the inside, and all that sappy shit, but if I'm picking up a magazine "full of cool, smart articles and pictures of hot dudes naked," I want to be able to read the articles and check out the pictures, without having to worry about being judged for my personal taste at every coffee shop, red light, and family dinner.

That said, Poolboy Magazine's in its infancy, and we were excited when we read on its blog about the first issue hitting stands last week (no word on how often it will come out). And frankly, any girl or gay guy should be pretty pumped about the concept of smart writing and hot guys (though a guy friend asked, "Isn't that what Top Doctors is for?").

Now, flat dicks, awkward poses, and greasy hair (in all kinds of places) aside, let's address the content, accompanied by some totally NSFW pictures you may or may not want to see ... 

Upcoming Events

PoolBoy has some smartly chosen feature topics -- as any girly porn mag should always include a good vibrator review, intro to the latest "clit-lit," and a water-color illustrated guide to birth control (especially helpful after the centerfold of the cover boy and his, as a coworker gracefully put it, "unbelievably giant-sized penis").

They also have a few good short fiction eroticas, which they've deemed plane-worthy reading, dick-themed blog shout outs, and a pretty straightforward How To on a wall of shame for your bathroom.

The cohesiveness of a girly porn is lost though, in the midst of choppy city guides, random art features, and Q&As with comedians who you hope to god aren't featured naked on the next page (but, hey, you still looked).


Ultimately, Poolboy's a page turner. And if you can get past balking at the skinny Argentinian, mid jack-off (page 25), and the guy who does a size comparison of his penis and Wii controller (26), you'll find a concept that's definitely worth another issue ...

Representative Sentence(s): "I'm not as pretty as you," he offered, as she retrieved the double-dong from the nightstand drawer, where it was displayed prominently next to the alarm clock, especially when they had guests over. It was a special one, nearly twenty inches long.

"No," she replied, "you aren't as big of a whore as I am."
