Teenage magazines

Do you think Bollocks could work? What would be in it? Have you got a better name? Do you read teenage girls magazines? Is there (God forbid!) too much sex in them? And can someone send me some... please...

I read Cosmopolitan from the time I was 11. Always precocious, I suppose. Teenaged boys _should_ have their own magazine. Bollocks would most definitely work. I'd read it!

I want my Bollocks! I always thought that teenage girls magazines were too serious. Because the world will end if you do your hair the wrong way, you know. Always had a good giggle at them.

often times when i would go to the dentist, i'd end up looking through girl magazines out of curiosity. it's quite interesting what kind of BS they publish about boyzzz. it's funnier the way they have sections written by guys for girls that resemble the "dear abby" section on the new york post. more often than not, the guy advisors are pre-pubescent bloody bastards (woah!) who still have yet to see hair sprout wherever necessary to reach manhood. guy profiles are amusing as well. twelve to seventeen year old girls rating a poor thriteen year old on his hottiness is a great contribution to the already corrupt society. "forget the self-esteem issue, let's have someone slaughter this dork's physical traits!" but then of course they take pictures of pre-pubescent boyzzz who haven't started growing massive zits on their silky as a baby's butt faces... ah.

oh yeah, nice site!!!

Do I read girls teenage magazines? No, I find the to be cruel and unnecessary. However, I also find the Daily mail to be cruel and unnecessary (and DEEPLY Censervative), but I read it for the Snoopy... i love the Snoopy... Anyway, loves you all... Well, as much as i can with so much bitterness in there over this terrible terrible day.... oh dear.

In Belgium, teenaged boys *have* their own magazine. Sort of. It's called 'Humo', and it's made up of equal parts sports, politics, music and movies. While a lot of people reading it are not quite teenagers anymore, they almost all of them start reading it at age 13- 14 and continue to until they're well into their 30s and beyond. A considerable amount of girls/women read it, but it seems to be geared mostly towards 17-yo boys [and I know of no girl that reads it as religiously as I do.]

As I don't understand how on god's blue earth *girl* magazines can sell so well, I wouldn't have a clue as to whether their boy equivalent would do well. Sorry. [However, if you or anyone ever decides to sell a maazine with lots of semi-nekkid females, I'd buy one.]
