    I used to like Maxim a lot, but it seems to have become not much more than a book of advertisements. I dont read any of them much anymore, but I think Stuff was the last good one I looked at.

    tough call... stuff had some pretty funny crap in it. I remember right after 9.11, when we went into Afghanistan it had a comparison rundown... with our guys vs "the sand people". In the WMD section is listed low-grade chem weapons or something for the bad guys... Trident II sub-launched ICBM for us. The verdict? "Cipro never cured anyone hit by a nuke.". Classic. :thumb:

    Don't go FHM. I've been a subscriber from their second issue, and it's done nothing but degenerate over the past 2 years. It's a book of ads, as was stated about Maxim above. I won't renew.

    Been a Maxim sub. for a few years. txcol_sanders is right tho, so many ads, it's starting to look like a Sears roebuck catolog.

    I had subscripibed to all three but they just got kind of boring and to full of ads. If your getting it for the half dressed girls you can find better pictures on the internet or just get real porn. If you are trying to find tips for male grooming and great gift ideas get Men's Health:haha: I am suprised all three magazines are still around

    Well they make probably 95% of their money from the ads, not magazines purchased, so if you have 160 pages and 100 of which are ads, they are making $$$. Its no longer about the readers, just seems its more about how much they can make.
