DNA #214 is as well packed as a stripper’s jockstrap! In fact, our underwear review features several well-packed jockstraps we think you’ll love, plus 12 more pages of the underwear brands that are making men’s junk happy all over the world!
Our favourite Aussie blond bombshell, comedian Joel Creasey stops by for a chat and delivers some amazing gossip about his famous chums, his hot new boyfriend, and his complicated relationship with the Sydney Swans football club! A great read.
Meanwhile, he was once the world’s most famous twink, now actor Randy Harrison who played Justin Taylor in Queer As Folk, has turned 40! He still looks amazing and has heaps to say about his QAF days, working in theatre and life in the US in the age of Trump.
Erotic fiction writer, Jack Ladd shares some of the secrets of his writing style and reveals that not all his stories are fiction – yes, some of the raunchiest scenes are semi-autobiographical. His latest sexplosion, Oscar Down Under has fans, er, coming back for more!
It’s almost a year since George Michael’s passing and a re-release of one of his finest albums with heaps of added material is reviewed this issue. Plus, in theatre news, we look forward to the latest revival of The Wizard Of Oz Down Under. In books we review the latest from Maupin and Hollingshurst, and on TV we’re watching the revival of Will And Grace and asking, was it worth the wait?
Iconic fashion brand, Rufskin celebrate their 15th anniversary and we take the opportunity to chat to the men behind the success (and have another look art some the sexy imagery that goes with their clothes).
We hope you love Vladimir Momotov on the cover and all the good things inside DNA 214.
