      Disadvantages

      A real eye opener, a good read

      I'll start by saying that I think this magazine was a lot better a few years back, whilst half naked women have always been part and parcel of this mag and are what you should expect I do feel slightly that they are taking over! I enjoy the ultra vixens bit but I find that these days there are a lot of articles in there about the various models used in the mag and these articles have no real point to them, they don't often make a particularly interesting read - bring back more of the bizarre stories! Saying that, this mag is really aimed at blokes I guess!

      As a female I sometimes feel uncomfortable buying this mag in case anyone else in the shop thinks I'm buying porn - as not only does it live on the men's section of the magazine shelf but it always has one of the said half naked women on the front cover!

      Anyway, I really love this mag! The weird stories in it from around the world are second to none and (I just wish there were more like there used to be!) but one of my fave things about it is where they have a section on an unusual fetish! The article in one issue about people who have a fetish of dressing up in big blow up latex outfits designed to look like cats or crocodiles or frogs or pigs etc was a real eye opener! I just find it amazing and so intriguing what other people get up to behind closed doors!

      As well as all of the main odd stories and strange pictures there are several mini sections scattered throughout called 'toilet time', this is not nearly as nasty as it might sound, they are just short bits of stories or weird facts etc that Bizarre feels you may want to read to pass the time whilst on the loo! There is often also a few pics of unusual tattoos and art which is interesting. The letters page is also quite amusing.

      Also, on a slightly more normal note there is always a film, music, book & game reviews section which is actually really good, certainly from the film point of view, as it reviews films that other mags wouldn't - I've watched some cracking films that were reviewed in Bizarre, try 'Mum & Dad' for one!

      It costs £3.80, i think, each month and this isn't cheap but if you compare it to the glossy magazines that have several pages just taken up by adverts it's not that bad.

      As well as all this though, Bizarre mag launched the Proud To Be Different campaign in response to the death of 21 year old Sophie Lancaster who dies after being attacked just for being a goth. As much as I read Bizarre because it is just that and I am very amused by some of the unusual stories and fetishes the great thing overall about this mag is that it shows us how many different types of people there are in the world and the more we learn about other people the more we can accept & embrace our differences.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Recommended - great for anyone interested in the alternative

      Mad Magazine
      As its title suggests, Bizarre is for those interested in anything a little bit odd and a little bit underground. At £3.30 a month the price is just right for a large, jam-packed and glossy magazine. However, unlike most magazines, the majority of the pages are filled with high-quality journalism and subjects that no one else would dare touch - think burlesque, cloning and necrophilia.
      Although marketed as a 'Men's Magazine,' granted it always has some form of scantily clad female gracing the cover, Bizarre offers much more than a bit of soft fetish porn. Features include...
      The week's best (and weirdest) pictures from around the globe -they can really open your eyes and are the sort of stuff you wouldn't fine in mainstream media. Some of the best pictures include a genuine three-eyed cat and a sperm whale whose guts flooded a city in Asia.
      'Ultra vixens' - readers can send in their own pictures in an attempt to become ultra vixen of the week.
      Reviews - books, films, games you name it. Some real underground and foreign stuff is reviewed as opposed to just the well-publicised and British.
      As well as tonnes more, including fetishes, murderers, parties and the famous centrefolds of alternative adult models such as Belladonna.
      Although Bizarre has been criticised for sometimes bad taste (the feature on 'heroin chic' comes to mind) it is defiantly brave, and does its best to delve into all alternative subcultures. For instance, Bizarre is what first brought my attention to steampunk which I've never heard about anywhere else. A lot of what it publishes is new and exciting and defiantly isn't just for men. It defiantly won't suit everyone's taste, but certainly don't dismiss it as just another porn mag! For more information see http://www.bizarremag.com/

      Well worth the read/staring if you like a bit of the bizarre!

      Bizarre is a monthly publication that specialises in the weird, strange and downright horrid.

      It can be purchased from most newsagents and shopping chains and costs £3.30/month and runs at 13 editions per year.
      It can also be purchased on subscription which, of course, will give you a nice discount on the face price :)

      If you've not purchased this magazine before and are not sure where to find it - look in the Mens Interest sections or on/near the top shelves!

      The magazine's content concentrates heavily on the more peculiar and shocking things in life and it's not uncommon to have features on extreme body modification, weird murders and some of the stranger fetishes about.

      And then there are the models!

      Bizarre boasts a fine field of some of the hottest female fetish models and glamour models in the business.

      It is not unusual to have stunners such as Bianca Beauchamp gracing the cover in a barely there latex number.

      Each issue has a centre spread containing one or more shoots from the cover model and you can be guaranteed some fantastic shots, outfits and eyecandy.

      The magazine is split down into various sections:

      To start off with you have 10 or so pages of weird and wild photos from the four corners of the globe.
      Whether it's 'funny' deaths or scarily-hairy women it's all there!

      Moving on to the next section you stumble across the reader letters and art/tattoo submissions.
      This can be one of the tamer areas of the magazine but there's always something interesting to read about and laugh about, invariably.

      Following on from the theme of the 'readers' you fall face first into the Bizarre Ultravixens. This 5 or 6 page feature is teaming with the faces (+ more!) of the gorgeous readers and a little information on what they like to ..get up to.
      Each month the best entry wins a nice little goody bag, and speaking from experience, I can say it's nice when a little box marked 'Bizarre' turns up on your doorstep!

      Once you've made your way past the Bizarre Ultravixens you'll find the real fun.
      There is feature on feature of sick and wonderful people - ranging from a photographer with a penchant for getting his models to roll around with squid and octopi (aka Genki) to interviews with some of the more..interesting people in life.

      Next in line is the model feature. The centre spread and the surrounding pages are host to the aforementioned horde of gorgeous photos of that editions cover girl.
      The theme always tends to lean toward latex fetish and bondage but it's always good fun to have a stare at.

      Toward the end of the magazine comes the reviews section where you will find all the latest releases in music, film and gaming reviewed.
      This sometimes feels like a bit of an add on and a bit un-needed but I'm sure there are plenty out there that enjoy it and find it a worth while read.

      ..Well, that's it I think.
      I think I've probably gone off a bit in the wrong direction as I always find too much to say about this magazine but in summary:

      If you enjoy the strange, sick and slightly wrong you are likely to enjoy Bizarre - if you don't already!

        Go buy it for the wow-factor, you won't be dissapointed. 5/5

        I don't want to write a thousand words about this magazine. There is plenty to read about within. Basically it's a monthly £3.30 monolith of the strange and bizarre and if you're into that kind of thing will put a smile on your face and a cringe in your soul.

        Personally, I think its one of the UK's best and brightest alternative magazines. It takes the scariest, weirdest, most extreme, most perverse, and funniest tales of the world and combines it into a smart, well-designed and informative read. And if you dig it for the softcore pornography alone, its not half bad either, with a specially sealed paper-pamplet at the pack for all your erotic salivation.

        I think I've been reading this for about 3 years now, still not subscribed (although I'm slowly liking to the idea), but am fascinated by the content within. I've read tales of heroin porn stars, midgets who breathe fire, tokyo sex club guides, clown violence, and towns that have gone mad - all in the last 3 months alone.

        From a psychological perspective I think this magazine could encourage ideas for a youngster (perhaps 16+), and whilst that could be both a good and bad thing, it pushes the envelope for all who read it. Each month one can generally expect a rollercoaster of a read, opening perhaps with a disgusting collection of imagery involving crocodile-meets-child, worlds smallest person, facial growths, giant feet and skydiving gone amok, moving to the sublime drug-induced drawings of our local artists, then onto articles and interviews, followed by reviews of great music, film & books, and then a final touch of erotica to finish off the hour of power if the train is your place of enlightenment.

        Do enjoy yourself when buying this magazine, I believe its worth every penny, and if it makes you gag, makes your partner gag you, or makes your friends gag it probably has created the desired effect. If you find yourself spending a special 20 minutes alone it may also have had the desired effect. Either way, if you still live with parents or hang out with vanilla types, be wary where you leave this read. You may have a few questions to answer.

        If you're interested in the weird & bizarre, go buy it now, because it does exactly what it says on the tin.

          Bizarre magazine - compulsive reading for strange people

          BIZARRE magazine is published once a month (13 issues a year) by Dennis Publishing (also responsible for Viz magazine) and costs £3.30 if bought in the local newsagent.
          Should you choose to subscribe instead then you can save 25% by opting to pay by direct debit (about £30 per year).

          I used to trek down to the newsagent every month but about 2 years ago chose to subscribe and have had no problems with the service at all.
          In fact, the magazine is delivered to your door a week earlier than it appears in the shops.
          I had to change my address recently and was able to do so online with ho hitches whatsoever.

          Anyway, about the magazine itself.
          You'll find it tucked away on the top shelf alongside the adult magazines, FHM, Loaded, etc - and rightly so !
          The contents are designed to shock and the editors search the planet to deliver extreme photography, horrific documentaries and bizarre interviews.
          I imagine that many people would recoil in horror at opening this magazine unless, like me, you have a slightly warped sense of humour and an interest in the stranger members of the human race.

          The best way to explain what to expect is to describe the contents of this month's edition :-

          The cover features one of Bizarre's favourite models, Masuimi Max, a fetish model and performer, wearing little more than a string of beads covering her behind.
          A selection of titles are displayed to give you a taster of what's inside - "kinky Japan", "pregnant hookers", "junkie erotica" and "people made of cheese" to name but a few.

          The first 10 pages or so are devoted to weird pictures taken from around the globe - a man with feet 45cm long, a fat kid undergoing acupuncture to cure his appetite and a shot of an "elephant cinema" plus some others.
          This feature is entitled "Photo Assault" and is very appropriately named.

          Next comes the letters page which confirms that there are some worryingly unhinged individuals roaming free amongst us such as the man who has noticed that dogs do not have buttocks....

          A selection of interesting titbits grace the next few pages before we get to this month's main feature - "kinky Japan", which is a report on the underground fetish clubs and the kind of people who frequent them. Of course, the model Masuimi Max adorns all of the pages to keep the reader's interest !

          Next up is a feature called "back from the dead" - detailing what happened to the 322 prisoners released from American prisons in 1972 when the death penalty was temporarily abolished. Of these, 111 ended up back in prison, 14 went on to kill other people but, alarmingly, some prisoners went on to prove their innocence !

          Have you ever heard of Ebare ? Similar to Ebay but caters for the, ahem, extreme end of the market - things I won't describe here but if you are really interested, search for Ebare in your browser and pepare to be shocked.

          I always enjoy reading the "serial killer" story and this month's edition tells of "the vampire of Rio" - a true story of Marcelo Costa who killed 14 children in the slums of Rio de Janeiro in 1992.
          But I had to read through the "pregnant hookers" story first which was an eye-opener to say the least !

          Towards the back of the magazine is the section which reviews music, DVD releases, books and computer games. I never read this section completely but occasionally something will jump out from the page and catch my attention.

          Finally at the rear of the magazine is the sealed section which is adult-orientated and contains an interview with an adult actress - Kelly Madison this week - and reviews of adult films if you're looking to buy any.
          (I'm not - I already have them all .....!!)

          One of the things I really like about Bizarre is that there is very little advertising.
          If you pick up a copy of FHM then you have to flick through about 12 pages of Calvin Klein jeans, aftershaves and other rubbish before you get to the first real story and even then you have to search for the articles amongst the rest of the advertising.
          Bizarre is not like that which is a good thing.

          In conclusion, Bizarre is a unique magazine which delivers articles intended to shock and interest you - something it does very well.
          I haven't covered all of this month's contents, just a selection of the more interesting items.
          So, if you are easily offended then avoid - otherwise pick up a copy and surprise yourself.

            I first read Bizarre Magazine whilst standing in the queue in my local newsagents about 18 months ago, and my first impression was 'Oh My God!!!!' It's certainly no 'Womans Own'! It's sold under the guise of a 'Mens Magazine', but I'm a 29 year old female, and I have bought Bizarre every month since I first picked it up that day. My husband will occaisionally flick through it, but he says it's not his cup of tea. It's basically the type of magazine your Mother would take away from you if she knew you were reading.....it's exactly what the title implies....Bizarre. It's full of strange and weird stories and articles and photographs, some of them downright scary, some of them thought provoking, some rather raunchy, all of them totally out of the ordinary. There are often articles and stories which one might term 'gruesome' or 'disturbing'; articles on serial killers, photographs of medical oddities, a very strange letters page, and as for the Agony Aunt.....well! The magazine is issued monthly and costs £2.95. I have to buy it in 'Asda' now, as our local newsagent won't stock it anymore! I'm probably not the type of person you would expect to read this magazine, if you met me (sensible Mum of four), then looked at a copy of Bizarre, but I find it's really interesting, a walk on the wild side that is guaranteed to make me giggle. And who says just because I'm a Mummy that I have to read articles baking and dressmaking?? YOu can keep your 'Womans Own'...I'll be sticking with Bizarre!

              Disadvantages

              Bizarre magazine is all about freaky, unusual, shocking, strange, and, as its name suggests, bizarre things, that are happening all over the world. The first thing you'll notice about this magazine is a scantily-clad young beauty on the cover. Yes, sex sells, and this probably makes us men more likely to buy the mag (with the knowledge that the same lass will appear inside the magazine with her clothes off)! The highlight of this magazine are the photographs - sometimes strangely funny, often disturbingly sick. Some examples of the Bizarre Gallery include: Mental Floss - a man with snakes threaded up his nostrils and out of his mouth. Bad Vibrations - an xray of a large 'foreign object' stuck up someone's back passage. Nasty Scrapes - Israeli investigations collecting the human remains of a suicide bomber (particularly sick). Paws For Thought - a photo of a kitten born with 8 legs and 2 tails. Nasty Claws In The Contract - two roosters with small knives attached to their spurs, fighting until death. (Not) Dying For A Kebab - a 20 stone man impaled by a wooden fence post. There are many regular sections to the magazine: **- Letters -** Readers letters where the best one each month wins a bottle of absinthe. **- Bulletin -** A kind of current affairs section detailing strange things that are happening, or planned, as well as the latest unusual merchandise for sale. Everything from limited edition Fidel Castro dolls to Indian Rural Olympics where farmers drive tractors over each other. This section also includes 'dopescope' where readers send in photos of themselves smoking cannabis in various poses. **- Competitions -** Some great prizes available, like portable DVD players **- Music -** Freaky fringe music reviews **- Visuals -** This section has TV and Movie reviews of sick, disturbed or unusual material. Wher
              e else would you find a review and screenshots of an Italian film called 'Nightmare In a Damaged Brain' ?? **- Bytes -** Computer and video console games reviews. **- Bizarre Sealed Section -** Contains reviews of adult movies, and loads and loads of advertisements of the type you'd normally find in top-shelf magazines (allegedly). These few pages come individually sealed and you have to tear along the perforations to view them, which protects innocent minds like my own. **- Ask Bizarre -** Here, you can pose questions to which you've always wanted to know the answer. Experts and celebrity panellists give their interpretations of the answers. For example, someone asked the question: "How much force would it take for me to pull someone's arm off; not just out of the socket, but totally remove it from the torso?" **- Classic Viz Cartoons -** A new regular section which has only just started over the past couple of months where you get a page of, as the section suggests, a Viz cartoon. **- John Hind's Bizarre Fifteen -** Always appears on the last page. A topic is chosen and then 15 bizarre examples from around the world are given. This section has been on topics such as Insect Upsets, Underwear Outrages and Builders Blues. As if all that wasn't enough, there are many, many features in each months magazine. The current issue has articles on voodoo, graffiti, dominatrix diary, how to start your own sex cult, sick films from Spain and their lack of censorship, as well as much more. The magazine is always 136 pages long, and is full of glossy detailed pictures, with a good mix of interesting text. It provides many hours of entertainment. The current price of Bizarre is £3.10. The subscription offer inside the June 2002 issue offers one year of Bizarre magazine delivered to your door for only £28, giving you a saving of £12.30, PLUS y
              ou get a free set of 4 tequilla glasses worth £5.99. If all that isn't enough for you each month, you can visit their website at http://www.bizarremag.com for more sick clips, pictures and articles. Are you sick and disturbed enough to read this magazine?

                Disadvantages

                I don't like women's magazines. In fact I hate them. They bore me to tears with their obsessive patronage of the beauty, fashion and diet industry. You have to pan through a lot of silt before you find any gold. I love Bizarre magazine though. Its actually my husband that buys it and has to hang around like a puppy-dog waiting for its walkies whilst I devour its contents. If you buy, steal or borrow a copy the first thing you must do is prepare to have your eyes opened, to be shocked. The letters page offers a bottle of absinthe to the writer of the best letter published and if you have a question to ask rather than a point to make simply "Ask Bizarre". They give away a "syringe" pen if you get published in this section. One question of note put to the magazine recently was "can a man be born with 2 penises?" Apparantly this is so, and a picture is provided to illustrate the point. Not to be outdone by conventional mags, Bizarre also features a problem page, Miss Kitty is who you should write to if you need to check up on the normality of those odd habits you display in the bedroom. The Bizarre gallery of full colour, full page, full shock pics is one of the best examples of photo-journalism that I have ever seen. Be warned some of the photographs you see here are quite disturbing (as in the rest of the mag) others are simply mind-boggling. Shiite Muslim men slashing their own heads with swords have to be seen to be believed. The next several pages are taken up by Bizarre bulletins. A veritable mish-mash of snippets on any number of bizzarre matters, from bondage teddies to surrealist art. We are moving into advert territory now. Please don't groan and complain, they are often as fascinating as the magazine itself. The bulk of the magazine covers a huge range of topics from drugs to devi
                l worship, sex and death. You even get a travelog, 24 hours in a particular city, pointing out all the things and places tourists really should avoid but make the whole experience of a weekend away that much more enjoyable. Book, film, video and computer stuff reviews abound and all with a slant on the bizarre and unusual. And finally, the sealed section, nothing very exciting I'm afraid unless you really want endless lists of adult chat line numbers and dodgily dubbed dutch videos etc. I find the fact that its a sealed section bizarre in itself, its not as if the rest of the magazine shies away from these subjects, but that really is my only problem, for want of a better word, with the whole publication. Bizarre is a no-holds-barred magazine packed with the bizarre, the insane and the downright stomach churning....an assault on the senses and a bloody good read!

                  Bizarre Magazine Bizarre has been around about four years now. It was first bought to my attention when my sister brought a copy home .My first impression was where ever did you find this. I found it a bit disturbing, but very fascinating, some of the pictures are a bit frightening and there’s quite a lot of sex and nudity in it, but don’t be put of from reading it because of that because it is still very interesting. Bizarre is jam packed with amazing stories and incredible pictures (not for the light-hearted). Bizarre says “the most fascinating hardcore features in print anywhere”. (And that statment is true) I read in one copy of mine, this page that stepped you through the 30-minute operation of a “nip and tuck”. Which is where, well instead of trying to explain it I’ll step you through it. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME 1. Prepare needle & hold with forceps. 2. Pull penis down between testicles. 3. Pull scrotum over from both sides to cover penis. 4. Stick up the scrotum so the penis is held in place. oooooh sounds painful, but how fascinating that people actually enjoy this and pay money to have this done. In another copy it showed you a picture of a kitten born with two faces. The kitten was born on the 9th of June in the Philadelphia. It is said to be in healthy condition and leading a normal cat life (with in added insight know-doubt). The most memorable story I ever read in Bizarre has defiantly got to be the one about a little girl who’s parents put her in a cage when she was about 1yrs old she can get out the cage but she is attached to a lead. They feed her by bringing her a bowl of food every day and she has a bowl of water in her cage. She is about 6yrs now, she can’t walk or talk she just makes animal noises and shakes her cage. There is a really good wed site for Bizarre. www. bizarremag.com <br> You may find copies of bizarre in H.M.V, Virgin and some newsagents. If you can’t find a copy at your local newsagents, ask them if they can order you a copy. Priced at £2.85 it’s a bargain. Extent your Knoleadge,open your mind. Keep out of children's reach.

                    If you want attention in life you can do a number of things. You can dress in such a flamboyant way in which only a blind person could not notice. You and your partner could have sex on a roundabout in broad daylight. Or, costing less money than the former and at lesser risk of being arrested than the later you could purchase a copy of Bizarre magazine. Picture the scene. Me and a few mates face a long, boring train ride, and so we need our own little form of entertainment just to keep us going, even though with the amount we talk its really quite pointless. Some have CDs, others a newspaper or a magazine, I also opt for the magazine. It was not long before someone noticed it. ‘Oh god that’s disgusting!’ they cried out in disbelief, I looked up from reading a little segment on a woman to man sex change operation (complete with the pictures) and mocked shocked disbelief. This got the attention of a few others and soon everyone was wanting to have a look at the magazine, each time giving it up with a truly disgusted look on their face, one of them even said they didn’t know how this can be sold. So why, then, had this magazine caused a stir? Well let’s view its content (and I’m basing this on Issue 45). This issue contained Part 2 of ‘Bizarre Extreme’ and it contained the following;  A large picture of a satanic ritual, picturing some black nuns, shall we say, relieving themselves for the Dark Prince.  The above mentioned sex change operation  A picture of a man with his face being eaten away by Leprosy  A truly disturbing murder file, telling the tale of a young prostitute who was beaten up, humiliated, killed then cooked. Also involving Hello Kitty. You’re still reading? Ah good. Now I must say that when they say Extreme they mean extreme, a normal issue of Bizarre doesn’t go that far into t
                    he nether regions of bad taste. But they come close. Bizarre is not, in any way shape or form a magazine for the faint of heart or those who are easily offended. Nor is it, despite the half naked women that appear on the front cover, a typical ‘lads mag’, it goes far, far further to bring you news of some of the most unbelievable but true stories around the world. So apart from the Extreme content what is in a normal issue of Bizarre? Well each magazine has a main ‘theme’. In recent months it has been Bodies (Issue 44) which look at things like tattoos to people who are turned on by amputees. Recently (Issue 46) the theme was dedicated to Weird UK, writing about Car Park sex to some weird hotels. The latest issue (47) is Nature, involving the more interesting gardens and how to grow your own drugs. Besides the main theme there are other regular sections. A firm favourite of mine is the Murder File. The murders in here are not the kind you hear on Crimewatch; these are some of the most despicable, disgusting and distasteful ones you may ever wish to read about. At the back of the magazine there is the review section which picks out some of the best suited books, TV programmes and movies that will suit Bizarre readers. At the front is the Bulletin section, telling stories from around the world and also advertising some pretty unique things you can buy online (Devil Rubber Ducky's anyone?). It’s an interesting read I can tell you. Personally I always love to try and find out things that are there to shock. Nothing else is good enough. My shock threshold is pretty high, I’ve watched too many episodes of Jerry Springer to be shocked by much these days, but there will always be something in this magazine that will. By doing that it deserves 5 stars on its own merit. However it has to be readable was well as shocking to make up a good magazine and it needs to be wo
                    rth the £2.95 it costs you. Luckily the articles are well written. Most of the time it’s done with humour but other times the tone will change to suit the mood (I can tell you humour is long gone in the Murder Files). On average the magazine is about 135 pages long and, rather pleasingly, there doesn’t seem that many adverts, indeed there are next to none in the middle of the magazine. There is also a lot of stuff to read through, so as well as being interesting it will while away the long, boring hours you may have to spend on trains (or not if your waiting for it to come). So downsides? To me there are practically none, each magazine is diverse with each issue and is fun to read. Others wont see it that way. They will find this disgusting. They’ll think its in total bad taste. Which it truly is. But if you like stuff like that then this is the place to read it from. I’m actually surprised The Daily Mail haven’t organised a ‘BAN THIS SICK FILTH’ campaign as they usually do. Bizarre is a unique magazine and make no mistake. Let taste go out the window and have an open mind while you read this and you’ll have fun and even learn something. For example after reading Bizarre I found that people get turned on by having their eyes licked. Bizarre? Oh yes. BIZARRE IS Shocking Full in content Fun to read BIZARRE IS NOT For the close minded FHM Going to suit everyone’s taste

                      This is by far the best magazine out at the moment!! I have been reading it for about a year and a bit now, and its still as good as the first time I got it!! It is published every month and costs £2.95, but it is pretty full of good stuff so the price isn't that bad. It is mostly full of grotesque pictures and amusing stories, and there is quite a few funny advertisements - especially from blue snake. Every month they give away a free bottle of alcohol for the best readers letters, and there are other competitions throghout. I would not advise younger children view the magazine however as there are many 'sex' adverts, although they are now in a sealed section. A new feature now is a quarterly sealed section with some awful pictures ranging from sex ops to bestiality!! Very amusing however, and well worth the money!

                      I have been reserving and now suscribing to BizArre mag c/o John Brown publishing (also responsible for Viz comic) for most of its life .At its launch it was a genuine and fresh publication with interesting features that opened eyes to freaky,strange and often sickening occurances all over the globe . Over the past few months it has got thinner,more expensive and in my opinion doesn't seem to have the same punch .This months issue (42) had two half decent features :sex lives of disabled people ? and eunichs , the rest of it was filled with topics out of the ordinary and mostly adverts for goods/websites and enough sex lines to fill a porno mag. I used to look forward for its arrival but now i'm going to cancel my subscription .

                      I've bought this magazine on an off since it's launch in March 1997. Bizzare deals with many occult and taboo subjects with a good selection of unusual photos. In many ways it's like a magazine version of Rotten.com,a good selection of strange photos of death, dismemberment, accidents etc. They try to keep the reader coming back by offering them ever more weird images / stories. It's quite a good read, the photos are not nice but they're the sort of thing that you just have to take a look at. The downside to this is that for a monthly mag (used to be bi monthly) they often struggle to fill it with worthwhile articles, hence the quality does vary month to month.

                      Bizarre is a magazine that's really out there. The first issue I saw had some guy nailing his unit to a wooden pub bar in one section and two beautiful, latex-and-nothing-more clad women wrestling in another. There's a News of the Weird section with facts and stories so strange they couldn't have been made up. The letters are really funny as well. If it's sick or perverted or gross or of questionable taste, it'll be in Bizarre eventually. You have to be one sick puppy to read this mag, but I love it.

                      I have been getting this magazine for nearly a year now and my first thought is that its content varies quite a bit from onth to month. It does go into some very strange and often disturbing areas. It caters for the weirder stories not published in the main stream press (except the Sport but they tell lies). They have lately been putting in sealed sections which I have been quite disappointed in. The Censorship issue was very over rated. There was nothing to warrent the hype, a few nipples and the odd fanny shot was all that I could see. Censorship has pushed the bouderies bak a long way and IF Bizarre want to lead the way maybe they need to become an 18 plus magazine. Thanks alkaliguru nice to see some constuctive ideas. Bizarre can contain images from quite pornagraphic to scence of death and destruction. These can quite literally offend even those of a strong disposition. But the past three issues really do seemed to have got quite tame. Yeas there is the sealed adult ads section, but hey I have recieved worse throught the post. Heck even some of the older students I've taught know about dildos (aka Eminem). If you want to know about Bizarre happenings world wide and see two headed cats well here is your read.
