Print is dead (and those issu style 'magazines aren't the answer!)


I wonder what all the models will do now though?

I agree style magazines and magazines like Stuff will soon come to an end too.

Do you think the introduction of Sun+ and their paywall reduces the profile of the Page 3 girls too?

I don't think anyones been able to name a 'page 3' girls for many years, it's just another job now, living off past glories. The exhibitionist models will find somewhere to flaunt themselves, the ones interested in making money will move on to webcamming. (until they kill that golden goose, too).

The days of well paid titty photography are over for people on both sides of the camera, I'm afraid.

It's not just T&A though is it? Most photographic markets are being battered by the onset of technology and the over saturation of the market place.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Personally I say 'Good riddance' to those mags who believed they could mix porn with news, motoring, football or whatever they thought lads should be interested in. When I was in my teens/early 20s, I'd buy a car mag if I was looking to buy a car or a porno mag if I had a raging boner. My local Indian restaurant does steak and chips whilst my local steak house also serves a curry but I bet neither sell too many.

The Sunday Sport should have shown the writing was on the table.

Lads are still interested in porn, motor cars, football. Lads mags were doing very well and attitude has not changed just that online and hand held device replaced printed media.

The Daily Sport newspaper disappeared but returned so obviously there is still a demand.

But what would you do if you wanted to buy a car AND had a raging boner?

Stay indoors?

But there's plenty of all that type of content available for free online, so why would anyone sign up to such an online magazine?

With the internet you don't need to make compromises. You can have the best of all the types of content without being bound to a particular website.

Its not just online. Maybe not the old Daily Sport which I may have incorrectly mention in my last post but the Sports newpspaper has been relaunchd for a while. I saw it in the newsagent the other day.....and in building sites.

I know about the internet and how it killed off lads mags, that what I've been saying. Newspapers mostly find its way to builders at construction site who arent going to spend more than 30p for a throwaway paper and arent going to whip out a laptop or mobile device in between work.

But is that a big enough market to keep then going?

Do we need more sets of topless girls in hard hats?
