‘Our articles, spanning across a whole spectrum of topics like politics, current affairs and pop culture, will be lengthy and in-depth.’
So boys, if you’re lusting after naked pictorials when this publication hits the stands, VIP would not be what you’re looking for.
There will be no nudity as the magazine has to toe the line with current Media Development Authority regulations that disallow frontal nudity in all publications here.
The magazine will also not be shrink-wrapped and there will not be a Parental Advisory tag on the cover.
But erotica was never the magazine’s direction.
Nudity is overrated, Mr Yeo added, because ‘with the advent of Internet, you can just go online and there’s porn everywhere’.
So his message to all chee ko peks who plan to buy VIP: ‘Don’t bother looking for instant gratification.’
Priced at $8.90, it is published monthly by Rabbithead Enterprise and distributed by Singapore Press Holdings.
That makes it slightly pricier than the other local men’s publications in the market today – FHM is $7.00 and Playeur is $6.90.
“UNCLE! ONE ICE KACHANG! DON’T PUT ICE! DON’T PUT ATAP CHEE. BIG BOWL AH!”
sheesh. The feeling of owning something explicit yet you know it’s legal compared to viewing things on the internet is totally different, don’t they realise this? anyway, Most people who are interested in PLAYBOY in the first place ain’t exactly the type that will enjoy “lengthy and in-depth”(read: dull and wall of words) crap. Spend 8.90 to read things a 80cents newspaper can do??
hell if ya gona touch on such boring things, then why use the rabbit head? why not just do something original? borrowing the fame of the rabbit head to drive sales, no creativity.
bah, there is no significance in the release of this magazine as the whole point of it is lost. it is just another magajine with girls in bikinis. This type, internet oso have alot. Actually, come to think of it, topics like politics, current affairs and pop culture.. INTERNET OSO GOT ALOT! (not to mention there are other magajines doing the same thing)
Why waste money??
