    Why is DNA Magazine obsessed with muscles and not with handsome men?

    I don't know why, but the Australian gay magazine DNA only has hyperstrong men on its covers. The model from DNA look like a bodybuilding athlete:




    I like to see a man in shape, but DNA mag is very exaggerated. Those guys are overmuscular! I dislike it! There are others Mags (gay or not) with male profissioonal models on the covers: Fiasco, Attitude, Chaos, Ey Teen, Tetu...

    Okay, first of all, the first picture you posted? That's Nick Youngquest. He's a professional athlete - as in a professional rugby player. I know plenty of rugby players and if he went out onto the field looking like one of those emaciated, weak little boys that you "Prefer", he'd be broken in two. I doubt you know just how intensely physical (steady!) a game rugby can be, but it's damned tough. For the Americans - imagine playing American Football without the armour or helmets. Yeah.

    Incidentally, if you don't like it, why don't you actually email the magazine and advise them that you want to see more of the type of "Men" that you like? I'm going to be honest, Heilg, but I've lurked around here for the past few months and from what I can tell, you like the emaciated twink look, where the male form is almost pre-adolescent. Whilst you may think that that particular look is sexy, not everyone does. Why do you like a male form that encourages the viewer to think that they are not skinny enough? Your physical ideal - to me - is ridiculous and unhealthy. You may disagree, but it won't change the fact that, ultimately, you like different things from different people and to be honest? You need to respect that.

    And one last thing, Heilg - you talk about "Professional" male models. I'd rather the magazines put sportsmen on the covers, purely because of the fact that the average reader of these magazines are going to be young men - gay or straight. Reason? They're better role models, better physical role models to aspire to. Not everyone fits in with the magical 5% of the global population of men who look like models. You might think they're sexy? They're airbrushed, a carefully polished and created fantasy of the male form, designed to lure you in and seduce you towards whatever product or service that they are promoting.

    I know what you mean OP. The guys are more Arnold Schwarzanegger than Henry Cavill. Everyone's entitled to their likes and dislikes but I don't really see the guys in DNA as sexy at all.

    To be honest, they look kind of fake. Like they're wearing makeup and are victims of photoshop. You can't really sense their personality from it.

    Don't you hate it when guys eat properly and get sufficient exercise? They are so much better when they are flabby and overweight.

    I wonder sometimes whether out of shape gay guys dislike athletes because they challenge them to take better care of their bodies and they're too lazy to do so.

    I'm amazed that Helig thinks these guys are bodybuilders, and that the other guy thinks they resemble Arnold S. So far off.

    Re: Why is DNA Magazine obsessed with muscles and not with handsome men?

    I'm just going to toss it out there that the male models & the athletes probably spend a comparable amount of time working on their fitness & nutrition. For all these men, their body is their paycheck. It just goes into developing different things - an illusion of tallness and grace for the models (probably with some yoga or Pilates or dance training), and muscular development and skill-specific strength training and whatever else they do for the jocks.

    I wouldn't throw any of the young men in the first set of pictures out of bed, but that's just me. . .

    God forbid someone prefer a man that doesn't look like he lives in the gym. I also love how you equate muscled or athletic with "healthy", because anyone without an eight-pack and biceps the size of baseballs just must be a slovenly pig in the worst shape imaginable.

    If this is an attempt to label the men who go to the gym on a regular basis as suffering from some sort of body dysmorphia, then you're not exactly doing a bang-up job. Yes, you can become obsessed with going to the gym and yes, you can become too obsessed about working out in your spare time. God knows I've worked with guys like that - there's a guy I work with right now who definitely has issues with his body and is constantly working out. But the fact is, someone who is athletically built probably is healthier than the guy who starves himself thin. And take it from someone who danced perilously on the edge of bulimia, but neither is a nice place to be in. Sure, you'd send a postcard, but you'd wouldn't want to buy the t-shirt and get a timeshare.

    The fact is, the OP made a generalised sweeping statement regarding the cover models of this one particular magazine without understanding or even trying to understand the demographic market that DNA is attempting to appeal to. He has labelled the men on these covers as "overmuscled". As I pointed out, in the case of Nick Youngquest, he's a rugby player. And his sport demands physical strength and stamina. If the OP doesn't like DNA magazine or it's models/cover men, then why is he bothering with it? Is there a particular reason why he brought it up? Is there some sort of homogenised image of homosexuality that all gay men, according to Heilig, should aspire to? I'm sure that DNA magazine really isn't too bothered with the opinions of one person on a bulletin board, but I'm sure they've identified their core demographics and will want to continue appealing to that demographic.

    I often have similar complaints about gay erotica in general. Overly muscular men with ugly faces. However I don't see that at all in DNA magazine. There is nothing bad about their models faces and while the muscles are above average I don't think they are grossly over muscular or anything at all.

    Re: Why is DNA Magazine obsessed with muscles and not with handsome men?

    @ Heilig - DNA is one of the VERY FEW magazines not obsessed with scrawny twinks. If you don't like it, you have plenty of other magazines to choose from.

    Myself - and many others - aren't into twinks, so it's nice that there are some magazines that cater to OUR tastes.

    The majority of gay porn (whether in print or on film) is focused squarely on twinks but you STILL complain! If anyone should be complaining, it's those of us who are rarely catered to.

    On a (vaguely) related note: Now that "Black Inches" has sadly gone does anyone know of any porn magazines focused on men of colour?

    Please point out where I used the word "healthy", which you enclosed in quotation marks indicating you are quoting me.

    "Biceps the size of baseballs"????????? C'mon, you're not serious, are you?

    All the men who are tired of being told that the effort they put into their bodies just makes them look fake, please come my way. Form a queue to the left. I will...uhhh....test whether you are a fake or not!
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    I dont think any of these guys look like bodybuilders, all are pretty lean. I can't stand skinny twinks, i like some beef. To each their own though, go find a mag full of skinny twinks if that's your thing, some of us prefer other types of men that have muscles and are beefy. In addition to just not being attractive IMHO, twinks tend to be bitchy, too feminine, and basically not much different than your average woman personality wise.

    I think you dind't understand me, I don't like twinks or effeminates. Marlon Teixeira, Sebastian Sauve and Francisco Lachowski aren't effeminate.

    But you're quick to label someone like Nick Youngquest as "Overmuscled" when in fact he's two inches shorter and four inches broader in the chest department than Marlon Teixeira. Interesting.

    This has been a hot topic ever since Cicero wrote "de gustibus..." on his VisioLibri page.
