Feeding hard bodies: Food and masculinities in men’s fitness magazines

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


All over the Western world, a new breed of leisure publications that deal with various intimate aspects of men’s lives have recently invaded kiosks: men’s fitness magazines. These publications have now abandoned the closets of gay men and the lockers of professional body builders to be conspicuously displayed in dentist’s waiting rooms or on coffee tables next to football magazines.
