Ah, yes, it was 100 million men who bought copies of 50 Shades of Grey.
Men bought plenty of porn before that.
Why would men buy porn when it is free on the internet?
There was a time before the Internet.

I think a 5 second image search through google can provide all the nudity one could possibly need without having to go through the hassle of buying a magazine, or if you want "articles", you can always go to Huffington Post.  They seem to have an endless supply of thought provoking articles about sex.  :p

If you want thought provoking articles about sex, subscribe to Men's Health. (Men's Fitness will do as well, at a pinch.)  :angel:

Their website prominently features an article on how to seduce a woman within a matter of seconds. The only thought that provoced was "Wow! They're a bunch of quacks!"

And that is why people bother to buy magazines rather than make do with what is found for free on the 'net. :laugh:

Except for the print-only exclusive material. (Interestingly, I can't find the article Cyrillic alluded to, on either site. One of us must be misreading.)

It's here. It gave some great advice on how not to be pepper sprayed as well.

Exclusive to the audience, I see. :laugh: You're the only one who could check if it's translated from one of the international editions or original to the Dutch edition.

Look people, it is a rule of the Internet - If it exists, porn of it exists.  If you can't find it, you are not looking.  Now, back to my search for robot tentacle sex with chickens during fasts . . .

Couldn't find it on the English site, sadly. But there's this gem. Five Ways to Seduce Her with Your Mouth. It isn't as exciting as the title would have you believe, but it's still quackery.

On the porn part. I'm sure he has extensive knowledge on the merits of paid vs free porn.  :D

More like encouraging them to stick with someone who knows how to manage their money and won't sink the family into debt over fripperies.

I don't know, Arachne.  While I agree with your generous interpretation, I suspect the target audience would take it the way Cyrillic did (at least based on that segment of the target audience among whom I live).  None of them would likely know what a frippery was, and the best guess might be "one of those fancy-az Starbucks drinks".

Eh. I wouldn't consider myself particularly generous in that respect. As for fripperies, the definition of dishearteningly many of the ladies I hang out with would be something along the lines of 'a 12-pack of beer, after he has been late paying the rent and some of the food budget has to go cover the late fee'.

Well, I've always been more of a Maxim and GQ man myself ever since I saw Lindsey Lohan on the cover circa 2006-2007  :angel: But yeah buying any written thing is kind of stupid when you can find virtually anything and everything you want for free on the internet.

Was that back when she was still hot? I shudder to think of what she must look like now. I would google it, but then I might barf.
