Last night on the Comedy Channel I saw an ad for a Guys Gone Wild series of videos. Basically the same concept (and, I presume, from the same company) as the Girls Gone Wild videos – college guys on Spring Break getting drunk and showing off their bods. (No hint of guys kissing each other, though.)
I found myself wondering: Who is this really aimed at, and who’s gonna buy it? Girls Gone Wild is aimed at straight guys. Presumably Guys Gone Wild is its counterpart, produced for straight girls to drool over. But this kind of thing . . . it’s not always symmetrical, is it? Playgirl magazine, for instance – I have no cite for figures, but rumor has it that most readers/purchasers are gay men. It’s like prostitution. Most prostitutes are women who serve straight male clients. The rest are men who, mostly if not exclusively, serve gay male clients. (From what I’ve heard – no cite.)
Whaddaya think, straight ladies? Does something like Guys Gone Wild or Playgirl turn you on, or would you rather bury your nose in a Harlequin romance novel?
