It may seem strange to some that VGMH considers the end of a magazine publishing nudes of women for straight men to be newsworthy, but probably not to gay men who came into puberty at a certain time in our history. One of the first smut magazines that my horny (and already hairy-knuckled hands) fumbled through was a Playboy which belonged to my Dad. Actually, there were several of them buried at the bottom of a stack of non-sexual men's magazines. And looking at those Playboys helped me to confirm something that I was already aware of about myself, which was that I felt differently than what was expected for how young guys were supposed to feel towards their sexuality. The magazine showed me what I was supposed to be getting excited about (photos of pretty ladies with big breasts tastefully posed), but it just didn't do it for me. At least the comics by Buck Brown and other illustrators featured images of men. And it was fun to try and find the rabbit icon hidden in every cover photo. Back then before computers there were not a lot of options, especially when you were still a kid living at home figuring things out.
