A New Wave Of Erotic Mags Blur The Line Between High-Style and Smut

Let's face it: Nothing sells quite like a little sex. Just take a look at pretty much every recent high-end editorial (it's art!), ad campaign (it's provocative!), or just about anything shot by Terry Richardson (it's Terry!) where Sex is more than just mere innuendo. With the lines between fashion, eroticism, and porn becoming less and less clear, it seems perfectly on point for a sexy slew of stylized skin mags to arouse new curiosity. Time to take note of these high-end purveyors of T&A.
Check them out after the break. NSFW (unless you work here)...
Paradis Magazine
This biannual "magazine for the contemporary man" is for those who enjoy a bit of intellect along with their erotica. As expected, it's packed with Juergen Teller snaps and interviews with artists Damien Hirst and John Currin, as well as tastefully nude images of catwalkers like Lily Cole and a pregnant Eva Herzigova.
Jacques Magazine
The newest flesh-heavy fare, this fashion-conscious erotic mag has a no-airbrush policy and steamy shoots that remind us of classic-yet-cheeky '70s porn pub Oui.
Butt Magazine
This pocket-sized homoerotic quarterly has seemingly changed the face of gay porn. There's still plenty of good old-fashion skin time but with the added benefit of clever interviews, artful photography, and a healthy dose of humor.
S Magazine
This smut-meets-art glossy bi-annual's sexed-up super-sized Issue Number 9 made us swoon with its Bardot and bondage-themed spreads and enough skin to make it way more naughty than your average fashion mag.
Purple Sexe
While Purple Magazine is already known for frequent skin-centric editorials, its supplemental index Purple Sexe—which arrived with our Fall/Winter issue—celebrates a steamy, less-clothes-and-more-skin aesthetic.
