This month’s photo shoot is of a group of men dressed up as “bunnies”, with ears and all. There was some climbing involved, but most of the pictures emphasise lashes and pouts, and pecs and arched backs. Whether it was supposed to be an Easter theme or not, the references to playboy bunnies are far from subtle. And I just can’t see what message it is trying to give, other than “we’re fuckable”, which, admittedly, it does rather well.

I am deeply disappointed. This is what I was looking forward to:
