Men's lifestyle magazinesEdit
Men's lifestyle magazines (lads' mags or laddie mags in the U.K. and specifically men's magazines in North America) contain non-nude photography or bare-breasted at most, accompanied by articles about the woman that is pictured (usually models, actresses or other celebrities) supplemented with consumer stories about men's fashion, cars, tools, toys, music, TV and film, sports, foods, alcoholic beverages; or "guy tales" of sexual encounters.
