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



I'd buy a Vauxhall - that would cures most urges, even the one to live!


HAPPY TO WORK UP TO OPEN WALLET LEVELS

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

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




Obviously the publisher thinks so to revive it and keep it going. There is plenty of construction sites around the country.

Don't the glossier magazines cost more to produce and physically print though?

(mainstream) Magazine finances are about advertising - the cover price does not cover production costs.
To sell advertising you need not only a readership, but one that advertisers will pay to reach.

The Sunday Sport is owned by Sullivan and presumably is a vehicle to advertise stuff from his own sex shops.
According to not entirely reliable sources on the internet, he originally sold his stake in Sport Newspapers for £20M and when it went into receivership bought back the Sunday Sport for £500,000. As he is extremely rich there is no reason to assume that he runs it in the hope of making a serious profit, any more than assuming that he expects to win anything as a result of his investment in West Ham.

Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

Yes but not the Sport newspaper, that is what I'm referring to. Guys attitude to birds, motors, footie has'nt changed just the target audience shift to another medium and for lads mags the target audience moved online. As I mentioned in my previous posts newspaper is still inexpensive and the practical nature of it is still popular in building sites hence why the Sport has been relaunched for about a couple of years now.

No real future.

If I was in the Paper industry (manufacturing) I would be scared.

Riding on the Gotterdammerung. Down and down she goes. Where she stops no one knows.

Why pay to see topless girls in a mag when it doesn't cost that much to join a site like this and pay to see the real thing.....

lol pretty sure most people's first stop would be Google rather than posing as a photographer in order to find topless pictures. Most people don't know these sides exist let alone "lads".

I know but to see nude and topless photos I think you have to have an account - I hardly think someone would sign up as a photographer, having to upload pictures they have taken of six different models in order to have their profile accepted purely to look at tits. They'd look up actual porn.
