PRINT IS NOT DEAD | A Continuous Lean.


Mar 24th, 2010 | Categories: Nudie Magazines | by Michael Williams

Not if Jacques (link is probably NSFW) has anything to do with it. Let’s not get it twisted, Jacques is a nudie magazine — one I bought for the pictures, but then actually read the articles. Not like nudie mags are provocative anymore with the Internets being the dirtiest thing ever conceived. But the fact of the matter is, Jacques is super amazing and if you aren’t reading (looking!) or subscribing, it is safe to say you are leading a boring life. My favorite part of the last issue (pictured below) was the feature on none other than the-pride-of-Tampa, Mons Venus, my favorite “gentleman’s club” in the world. Seriously riveting stuff (or at least very entertaining stuff).

To promote the new issue, Jacques made a little video (again, seen below) that is, um, pretty amazing. Never knew racket sports could be so much fun. Enjoy!

Depending on where you work, you might not want to watch that video, you know, at work.

    subscrips to Jacques is one of my go to gifts to give “gentlemen friends” who already “have everything” or are so discerning that you never know WHAT you could possible buy them… Jacques fits the bill quite nicely ;-)

    If she focused more on her technique, she might not have to do all that heavy breathing. Oh wait…I get it. Never mind.

    Another great book I saw at the Taschen store in Beverly Hills was about Dennis Hopper’s photography. I think it costs about $700!

    Shouldn’t need to look at this if you have a proper lady friend, or are capable of acquiring one.

    Totally irresponsible video post!! How can you live with yourself for posting that video on a wednesday evening when I am 5 Heinekens down?

    God bless the internet. It makes me want to take up sport again.

    Porn with… class? Is that even the right word? No retouching tricks? I’m actually tempted.

    I’m glad to learn about this magazine, but this whole comment thread is very “boys at the water cooler”. The comments here wouldn’t stand out on a Maxim thread, which seems to disserve the notion that Jacques’ (or ACL’s) readership is much different.

    I like to think of these comments as something more akin to a FHM or a Stuff conversation.

    Check out Tori smoking the cigarette. The director must be 12 years old.

    Went and bought an issue this weekend at St. Marks Books. I was a bit disapointed as I’ve recently bought a few issues of “Escapde” (with the Kerouac end stories and noticed a great similarity between the two. What got to me was Jaques insistent minor motif of prostitution – in both the spread as well as the fiction and jokes page. It made me think that what I really enjoyed in the “Escapade’s” was more of a sexual nature in your life versus one that is seemingly more or less for sale.

    I minor issue to be sure – but one that I noticed.

    At the same time I think a proper lesson squash could be in my future.
