Our Romanian Photoshop intern is super into gay fanzines. As for us, well, our knowledge of DIY dong publications is relatively limited, so we asked him to compile a list of the juiciest homo 'zines ever made. He was more than willing to oblige, and took some time off from touching up ads to put together these reviews of the most hilarious, disgusting, and ridiculous 'zines that have ever come out of a printer. Personally, we have a hard spot for Teen Meat.
DINGUS & PISSZINE
Dingus is a fanzine that specializes in the vast continuum of dick: porn star dick, super hero dick, editor dick, adolescent dick, etc. It celebrates the variety of penis in the world with a variety of art forms: poems, novellas, comics, fan fiction... any way you can think of to draw or write about a dick, Dingus has beat you to it.
In the same genre is the impossible to ignore Pisszine. It's infuriating but amazing, and really, really funny. It deals in some of the foulest and most poignant stuff orbiting gay sex: piss, the urogenital system, and golden showers. Appropriately, Pisszine is printed on pee-pee hued yellow paper.
STRAIGHT TO HELL
This is the world's oldest gay fanzine still in existence. Straight to Hell was first published in 1971, at a time when your parents had yet to define their own sexual orientations. Originally it didn't even have a cover, just a scrap of paper hand stapled to the rest of the magazine and "formatted" with a typewriter. This changed with the twelfth issue and since then STH has gradually become the best radical gay fanzine in the universe. The magazine's specialty lies with the reader-written stories that describe – in detail – their most spectacular sexual exploits. About half of the contributors are straight, which is sort of strange considering the articles they write are called things like, "Baptist Boys Do It, As It Were, In Church" or "The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name: Armpit Sniffing."
