  1. Great idea for a blog, I support this wholeheartedly!

    Will also link to you when I next update things. Lads’ Mags just seem to be getting worse and worse and the normalisation of porn is really damaging.

    i work in oxford street by the ZOO office and i sometimes see Chris Bell. he stares at women that by him by, as if picturing them in his head, naked.

    i can tell that he is someone who clearly masturbates a lot – no doubt while imagining us women in horrific sexual positions, sometimes together – in a showers scene, or on a beach at sunset perhaps.

    it disgusts me, from my gold flaxen blonde hair to my dainty little toes. splashing in the surf. as the sun kisses my erect nipples and dolphins play ion the horizon. oh god.

  6. Thank you for giving us an insight into the mind of lads mags employees/readers. Did you masturbate while writing that comment..?

    Chris Bell is the Executive Editor for ZOO.

    I won’t usually publish posts like the one above.
