Is GQ trying to be a softcore Playgirl? Maybe GQ Style China is, which in their launch issue is taking the age old fashion tact of featuring fully nude models. Unlike the sexually ambiguous Details, it seems pretty clear what audience the inaugural issue is trying to attract: all of China’s closeted gays.
Our question is, why are the only images we could find are of the magazine propped open? Is there something about a communist country that didn’t allow the release of clear, perspective photos? Is it a result of the web wars between Google and China? The photospread, “Me and My Body” by Fan Xin,” features a level of male eroticism you’d never find in guy mags stateside. Is China really ahead of us in everything, even in male nudity?! Must be yet another sign that the rapture did happen.
