Yep, I read Esquire

    From a friend's e-mail when I said I saw something interesting in this month's Esquire.

    Then he asked if I subscribed to Details or just read it at the bookstore.

    Lordy, that description cuts awfully close to home.

    And I bet he fucking loves The Shins.

    Two can play this game.

    Hey! I read Esquire and I don't care if my friends are impressed at bar trivia.

    I fit the description. But I let my subscription to Esquire lapse two years ago, because even though they will give it to you for something like $5 a year if you find an online offer or just hold out on resubscribing for a month or two, they were getting lost in stacks of reading of things I cared more about.

    I do have a boob fetish, though. Is it really that bad?

    Ragu, you should never apologize for who you are.

    Is it really a fetish? Seems to me, that is just part of being a guy.

    Who wants to be "ambiguously heterosexual"?

    I had a subscription for about ten years starting in the mid 60's. Wolfe, Mailer, Capote, and Talese were the stars back then.

    Gave it up until a few years ago when our man Jones started writing.

    Cancelled it. Its "Look at me, I'm hip" posturing became really off-putting.

    Anyway, can read almost everything online. :)

    I've been a subscriber for about 2 years......sometimes I'll read an entire issue, other times won't even open it. I'm only paying something like $4/yr, something crazy inexpensive, so it's worth keeping.

    Plus, I love reading about what clothing I "need" to have each season, especially when an outfit costs about $9,000....that's just the pants and shirt.

    Do you have a sports and boobs fetish?

    Their fashion stuff is pretty good but that $750.00 cashmere sweater means two fewer Leafs tickets. :)

    Flipping through a GQ at the grocery store while The Lady Friend did some shopping, saw a fashion spread with Joel McHale. One page was about socks. The cheapest pair was $14. The most expensive was $250. Most were close to $100 a pair.

    I've had an Esquire subscription for years but I don't think my boob fetish has anything to do with it.




    My boob fetish, however, is likely responsible for my Voluptuous subscription.
