Nuts Magazine for men is the absolute epitome of stupidity in terms of price, quantity and quality of content. It contains nothing but moronic, boring and offensive for the sake of offensive pub and office humour, and really pushes and perpetuates the stereotype that the only things that matter to men are breasts, curry and football.
Its expensive, flimsy and ugly and aimed at idiot blokes. IT contains caption competitions, football scores and jokes sections, as well as articles about the more idiotic aspects of mainstream media, including Jordan and Peter, something Jimmy Carr said, and the usual dross that you'd expect to read in other such unenlightened publications as The Sun, and The News of The World.
Badly written, badly spelled articles are dotted haphazardly over the page, amidst an endless see of shots of breasts, pictures of footballers, silly quizzes and more of the same old dross every week. There's no variation in content and no increase in quality from publication to publication. Its aimed at people with low IQs who really cannot think or speak for themselves. I really suggest that you avoid this magazine if you have some semblance of intellectual self-respect or sense of priority. Get as far away from Nuts Magazine as you can. It is rubbish, written by cretins, for cretins.
Nuts magazine has been up and going for quite a few years now and was the magazine put on shelves to see if there was a market there for mens magazines following on from the successes of many womens weekly magazines. Well simply put this is still here so I am guessing that they are doing something right.
So what is it all about and why has it been such a controversial thing since day one? Nuts magazine is thought up with a main market demographic being aimed for and that is young and horny guys who don't want to buy top shelf material as that is too much but still want their fill of naked skin.
The magazine offers up a number of different things including celebrities, cars, motorbikes, women, sports, styles, fashion, gadgets, movies, music, games, jokes and tv listings amongst other things.
The articles are on the whole fairly well put together and read well but don't expect this to be a classic read as it is a simply put together magazine aimed at many who don't read much other than magazines like this offering.
The magazine is not too bad in its pricing with the price approximately £1.50 to £1.70 but can be on offer for cheaper (the price has been going up slowly but surely).
So is it worth it? Well that depends on what you are looking for from the magazine...I personally pick this up every so often as I am into my football and gadgets so love to take a read of these sections and the jokes section but I flip past the flesh pages as I am not looking for that in a magazine to read on my commute (or any other time).
- Well priced
- Weekly offering with tv listings for the week also offered
- Good range of offerings for articles
- Well thought out and laid out magazine
- Simple read
- Mainly filled with women with next to no clothes on
This is an ok magazine that offers a simple and cheap weekly read for young men on their commute.
Nuts is a blokes weekly magazine aimed at, I would say, 18-30 year olds, I'm 26 and must admit I do buy it occasionally but once you have read it (or should I say looked at the pictures) for a few weeks its gets pretty boring. I buy it generally when I'm going on a long journey or holiday, just to pass the time. It has a weekly update from various football pundits about the up-coming games, fashion "tips", latest gadgets/cars, jokes, plenty of boobs (including a real girl section) and my favourite bit 'Nuts Pub Ammo' which is just a useless facts and information section. This is one of 2 lads mags that I am aware of, the other being Zoo, which is pretty much the same content! The articles are short with as many pictures as they can fit on the page and is nowhere near in the same league as GQ, Mens Health, FHM, Loaded etc. but I suppose you do get what you pay for. I wouldn't buy this every week but as a one of to catch up on which models have had boob jobs recently its not too bad.
This really is one of the most pointless publications i have ever read!! and no im not gay or a woman,i love looking at lovely girls and cars,but every week?? really once you have seen a couple of breasts there is not much more to it! and yes it is nice to keep up with the latest supercars but most of the articles are poorly written and headlined with terrible puns to try and brighten up the awful writing skills of the journalists.
How many more articles about gangs and football hooligans can there be out there it is all the same old crud repeated every few weeks!
This mixed in with some readers letters and so called sexy readers wives stories about how "the window cleaner caught me starkers so i bonked him" very classy indeed!
I do understand who this mags are aimed at but surely even that demographic must get bored with this crap every week.
Save yourself the cover price and take 60 seconds to read it in Tescos!! if you have got a minute to waste
There's no real way of putting this other than that Nuts magazine is my toilet reading. I spent years reading FHM and found it a great mix of humour, health, true stories and of course the odd eye candy but more recently FHM has tried to model itself on GQ and quite frankly has become a bit boring.
Although I do still occasionally read GQ and FHM I find that often I am looking for something a bit light hearted and usually turn to Nuts magazine. I am fully aware that as a 32 year old man it looks a bit sad to be buying a magazine that consists of topless women, jokes and the odd bit of 'amazing true stories' but at the same time I find it a good light-hearted read.
It currently costs £1.20 and is available for sale every Tuesday.
I would say that it does get rather repetitive; they tend to find a new model and then spend months publishing her photos. The big catch for them was getting Lucy Pinder to do her first topless shoot in Nuts, I have to say that I wasn't overly bothered by it but apparently she got paid the most money ever to go topless.
You will also find that if you buy Zoo magazine they seem to run very similar articles and pictures so don't bother buying both.
In summary, if you want interesting articles get FHM, if you want interesting articles with pictures get Playboy, if you want pictures with light-hearted entertainment get Nuts!
There was a gap in the market for a mens weekly, and the biggest magazine company in the UK decided to fill it, creating Nuts. However, one employee saw the plans for the magazine and went to their rival magazine company, who later came out with Zoo.
So both magazines were aimed at the same market, both the same price. So which is better, well that depends on what you want in a magazine. I would have to say that i prefer Nuts to Zoo, as i always think there is more writing in Nuts, while Zoo is a bit too pictures orientated. However, i usually only buy a magazine when i am traveling, so i tend to buy them both as they are that cheap.
When i am traveling on the train however, i skim over the pages with nudity (out of respect for the kids!), so i find that i hardly have anything to read in Zoo!
But if you just have half an hour to spare, one of these magazines is good for a quick read. Its not like eithr discuss hard hitting issues, its all either about women, football, or gadgets usually. Both have an "accidents" page, i think they both do lipreading football games too, and ladies confessins etc.
But Nuts is obviously winning the battle as thy sell much more than Zoo. So all in all, Nuts is a good, light hearted magazine, and being weekley it means you dont have to wait for a new magazine to come out all the time. But not as good a read as FHM
Nuts is a weekly mens magazine that has become very popular and even now has its own freeview channel.
Its a typical mens magazine which gives you all the down lo on whats hot and whats not.
Inside you will get the latest on whats going on off and on the pitch in the world of football as well as plenty of photos and pictures of some of the hottest babes around.
Woman and football are a great start, the only thing missing is fast cars and guess what. Nuts has them also. Yes that right every week Nuts brings a new concept car to their magazine advertising it as the new fastest car or its make.
So with the basics of sport, woman and fast cars all covered as well as the odd bar room joke there really isn't any need to expand any further.
Guys get your money out and buy it now.
Growing up with two older brothers I have become used to seeing magazines scattered on the bathroom floor and their bedroom of topless models and celebrities as well as the latest cars and console games so when I met my partner many moons ago I was not in the least bit suprised to discover he had the same passion as my brothers of reading a "Lads" magazine and every Tuesday without fail his copy came straight through the letterbox.
Despite my complaints that it was not going to be delivered to our house when we moved in together almost 2 years later it still finds its way through our letterbox every Tuesday so rather than fight it I decided to start reading it and for once he has a point there is a lot more to this magazine than boobs and bimbos!
Nuts was created as a spin off of the magazine "Loaded" it was also the first UK weekly lads magazine and is published every Tuesday.
The magazine currently retails for £1.40 but every now and then they slash the price of the magazine this weeks edition was half price at 70p.
Nuts is now the UK'S Best selling weekly man's magazine and reguarly outperforms its main competitor "Zoo".
Generally the magazine is aimed at 18+ but there is no actual age limit on the magazine and therefore many 16 and 17 year olds can purchase the magazine easily.
My other half has a subscription to Nuts which generally has a special offer to entice such as 4 issues for just £1 and a free gift but it will sign you up for a contract of a minimum of 12 months....that's a lot of nuts!!
Signing up can be done via the nuts.co.uk website or via telephone and you will need to provide your bank details so that a direct debit can be set up.
*~*In Every Issue*~*
This will normally revolve around an F1 race, Football Game, Rugby Game or Cricket Game where celebrities will be asked for their opinions and guesses for the final result.
This is the section where female celebrities feature in nuts over a "boob" incident or a "flash" incident with a member of the paparazzi.
I think this is another excuse to get some pretty looking celebrities in the magazine again scantily clad.
Amazing New Cars
This interests me as I like looking at new performance cars and this section sometimes includes the new Bond Car or other super car to featured in a smash hit film.
The latest must-have techno gadgets from remote control cars, latest mobile phone or mp3 player or the best value TV available.
This section is great for getting a real bargain as Nuts will have searched for the best UK price.
Club Strip Challenge
Two members of the Nuts team travel up and down UK Nightclubs looking for a pretty young lady willing to strip down to her underwear...maybe its me but it seems an awful funny coincidence that they nearly always have matching underwear on as if they were expecting nuts to be there...........
This can be found at the back of the magazine and is the first port of call when the new magazine arrives as it is filled with fascinating facts, tips, and tricks to impress your friends.
Nuts TV Guide
Features the week's viewing but ladie's beware Eastenders and Coronations street will not be in the "must see tv" section expect lads only programmes to come out on top.
10 Second Reviews
A quick review of the latest films, games, music and DVD's to be released, ideal for getting to know which films are hit and miss.
Another weird but interesting section in the magazine as a reader sends in shocking photographs of them with a horrific injury in the hope of starring in the magazine and netting themselves with £1000.
The pictures are stomach churning but the story of how it happens will make you flinch!
A sections for women and men to write in and believe it or not more and more women are writing in to say how fab the magazine is. Lads send in pictures of rude shaped vegetables or crisps and funny shop names.
The most worrying introduction to this page is the Readers Mums section maybe a little gross for anyone.
Big Page of Jokes is where you fill find a collaberation of celebrity and reader jokes some funnny some pretty lame.
The Truth about Lucy Pinder
The nuts resident model answers lads queries on how to treat women and decodes body language on a famous celebrity. Again another opportunity for her to pose topless.
Real stories from women and confessions of the week earns £50.
Normally saucy stories.
Real Girls, Real Places
Every week a female reader takes us on the tour of her house in her underwear and tells us a bit about herself.
The magazine is of good value, and if you have a bloke who likes to be a bit of a lad every now and again this is good to keep them entertained and is a real bargain.

*-*- Review by helpa4eva -*-*
First impressions -
I started buying "Nuts" magazine a few months ago now, after having to buy something cheap to get out of my local supermarkets car park. I saw this on the shelves, with a cover that contained picture of two beautiful women wearing.. well.. not a lot really! A picture of the Audi from then-new-film "I-Robot", and various bold headlines such as:
"Drug test cheats",
"Crushed to death! - the snake attack story"
"Whos out to get BECKS?"
All of the above things made me very interested in the magazine, so i picked up a copy. I have been buying it religiously every Thursday/Wednesday when the new copy is out now. So lets look in the most recent issue (15-21 October) and have a look inside...
I'm not just being boring and listing every page here. The contents page every week lists the regulars, the features, the football section, and of course news. In each section of the magazine you will find mostly the same stuff every week. Such as:
NEWS: This section contains information on the latest Gadgets such as the new generation PS2, and all the latest on Cars, and Biking. The latest issue also has a story on Johnny Vegas on the set of his new show. - 9/10
FOOTBALL: This section is do-what-it-says-on-the-tin really. Contains funny captions from matches, and general information on Premiership and Footballers. 6.5/10 - because im not really into football
REGULARS: Now this is the interesting bit, and all of the Regulars are very interesting/funny to read, and they are as follows:
"Ask the Secretary" - This is a section where you send in letters about your sex problems or experiences and they get answered by The Secretary. 9/10
"Jokes" - Pretty obvious what this is. Q:"What do you call a snake on viagra?" - A:"A walking stick!". Most of these jokes are funny, but i have seen 1 or 2 jokes repeated in Nuts. 8.5/10
"Letters" - Also obvious. Not much to say about this section really, its just letters, some funny, sent in from other readers of the magazine. 8/10
"Babe Ballot Box" - This is where you look at a few pictures of ladies, and you can vote for which one you think is fittest. Whichever babe gets the most votes goes to a photoshoot and her pictures appear in next weeks issue! 9/10
"Top Tens" - These are lists published about really weird stuff, from longest film names to Hip-hop rivalries (Tupac VS Notorious BIG), and weirdest web page names 9.5/10
"Ten-second reviews" - Unlike this op., these are a few sentences detailing info on the latest books, games and music, each with a star rating. 8/10
"Spambank" - Funny pictures sent in by readers. If yours is the best that appears in the magazine you can win a phone or a case of Corona beer! But again, i have seen a few pictures repeated in this section :-(. 8/20
"Pub Ammo" - This is a section of random facts no one needs to know but its fun to know them anyway. Did you know that if you bought a telephone directory within six metres of the gravitational pull of a black hole, it would weigh a million tons? This section also contains "Readers facts, tips and tricks". Trick - if your caught without an umbrella, go to any hotel lost and found and youll be given a choice of hundreds!. 10/10
FEATURES: Last of all is the features. They do stuff like features on the greatest con men ever, most wanted, the SAS, comedians, etc. Its all good. 9/10
So thats whats in the magazine. Also, sometimes the magazine has a special offer every now and again, where the magazine is only 60p instead of its regular £1.20p price, but the 60p issues tend to be the weaker ones, not as good as normal full-price issues of the weekly mag.
If you subscribe to the magazine you get a VERY good offer - 8 copies free! Thats 2 months, and a saving of £8.60. The magazines get delivered to your door every week, and you get refunded on un-mailed issues. You can subscribe by calling a number, or go to there website, where you can also sign up for the free online nuts newsletter -
But you can also subscribe using a send away coupon provided in the magazine each week.
This magazine is very good value for money - although sometimes jokes & pictures are repeated, which is definitley a big let-down. I would reccomend this to men OR women with a sense of humour who arnt just obsessed with Football and Ladies. I am giving this magazine an overall rating of 5 Stars.
Nuts is a weekly men?s magazine which is now about 6 months into it?s lifespan. And in my opinion, it should be put down in order to ease the suffering? of the readers. ***Sex appeal*** I bought the copy I?m reviewing (new copy out every Thursday) on impulse; I like to have a magazine around to dip into every now and again and wanted to see how this new name had panned out. I?d seen Nuts on the shelves of the supermarket every week and had noticed that most of the cover photos (the main photo is always of a featured ?babe?) were familiar? I?d seen them before somewhere. Same with this issue ? Denise van Outen ? but nevertheless I parted with my £1.20, probably because I am (quote Anita) ?an advertisers dream? and had found the TV ad campaign quite witty. The cover has a very tabloid look, with a bright red logo and pictures of women, cars, sport and the like. All very red blooded! ?100 pages of brilliant stuff for men? it exclaims? which is true if you include both front and back cover! Must have been a short news week, eh? ***Between the sheets*** Not much to stir the passion, unfortunately. The magazine is split into four sections: News (ha!), Features, TV guide and Sport. Let?s get this over with? ***News*** Now don?t be fooled by this. I wasn?t expecting an in-depth analysis of the economy, but the news section this week leads with a 2-page spread on a stuntman who drove a motorbike into a breezeblock wall. Less than a ninth of one page is devoted to the written account of the earth-shattering event. The rest is a picture by picture account of exactly how he did it. Man gets on bike, man drives bike, hits brick wall, land on other side. Fills you with a verve to plough on, doesn?t it? All a con anyway? the bricks weren?t cemented together. Perhaps
they should have been and we could have been done. The remainder of the 31-page news section is taken up with riveting tales that I?m sure have been pulled from tabloid newspapers and the like? some do look familiar. Footballers, cars, stereos? lost interest yet? ok, throw in a page of a sexy lady with her norks out? gory pictures etc etc. Did you know, for example, that Rio Ferdinand eats at a greasy spoon in Mosside and one of his favourite dishes is goat curry. Must be true, Ron the proprietor said so. Top sources. As with the stuntman article, many of the items deemed newsworthy filled a 2-page spread, with a few lines of drivel in one corner, the rest of the space devoted to pictures. ?We have 100 pages to fill, boys, and by jiminy we?re gonna fill ?em.? ***Features*** Just shy of 20 pages of more boobs, footballers, cars, amputee stuntmen (really!) etc etc. I think you get the drift. There is a very fine line between news and features? News is nonsense that has gone off recently; features are things to fill up pages 32-49. I?m not overly certain what it takes to get into Nuts as a feature. As it transpires, the variety of spitting techniques employed by today?s top flight football stars and a Renault 5 sporting £25,000 worth of stereo are feature-worthy for this week. Roll on next week is all I can say. ***TV guide*** A sure-fire way to get a few more pages filled up. Once again we see more bristols, cars and sportsmen. Each day the terrestrial viewing feast is spread over 2 pages. One page gives the listings, the other Nuts? picks of the day. All things supposed to get lads to turn over when their other half is watching Corrie. There then follows a load of satellite and cable pages? I?m sure I?m not the only person who never looks at them? a
nd 2 pages of the worst dvd, album, film and book reviews I?ve ever seen (and I?ve been on here a long time!) They are called ?10 second reviews?? utterly pointless. ***Sport*** Wow. We?ve just had the TV section; now we get 2 pages filled with what sport we can expect to see on TV this week. They obviously don?t expect you to look through the satellite listings either, so they?ve done a potted version. We are then treated to a reasonable 4-page Formula 1 article? all very well, but I?m not a big fan, so the only bit worth reading gets a quick scan for the purposes of this review. I suppose you could say they saved their (rather weak) best till last! The magazine ends with the usual nonsense? letters (hilarious), jokes (side-splitting) and funny pictures, possibly the only thing in the magazine to make me smile. Or was that because it was the last page of the magazine. Sorry, page 99? the last page is the outside back cover, nearly forgot. Any news lurking there? what do you think? ***Website and other rubbish*** There is a website, even less entertaining than the paper version. If you really must, the following 2 addresses (in case you?re stupid) lead to it. www.nuts.co.uk www.nutsmag.co.uk There is a prize of a camera phone for the letter of the week, but I shan?t be bothering. I reckon my IQ is way too high at 79. ***Summary*** An over-priced pile of regurgitated bilge! Reading age requirement? 11. Picture content? greater than Janet and John books. Nuts ? if I ever buy this again, then yes. I probably am.
Looking back at it I am surprised it took so long. A men’s weekly magazine. The success of Heat Magazine obviously got the media men thinking. Women have had weekly magazine publications for a very very long time, such as…er..Woman’s Weekly. Nuts’ first edition hit the shelves at the end of January this year. The normal ‘new magazine’ ploy was used and the first issue, and I believe the next 2 or 3, were priced at 60p. The usual price for the magazine now is £1.20. Nuts is published by magazine giants IPC, who are part of the huge TimeWarner Company. A famous female cover star, normally wearing very little, dominates the front cover. In big red letters at the top of the page reads ‘Nuts’. ~Content Nuts is 100 pages in length. The most obvious thing about flicking through this magazine is the lack of advertisements. A typical edition contains about 5 pages of ads. Compare this to one of the ‘quality’ monthlies where it seems every other page is an advert for a ridiculously overpriced after-shave. The first section you come across in the magazine is ‘True Stories’. Now, with this title you expect some unbelievable or extreme stories. However, what you do get is what you may expect to find in the pages of a tabloid. Not very exciting. These ‘Stories’ are more pictures with a small text box at the side. Another large section is the News piece. The content is shallow and does not include enough information to interest you enough. This is then followed by the ‘Top Tens’ which is basically a list of things, all in ‘blokey’ form such as 10 Things about Base Jumping, The Electric Chair and so on. Somewhe
re in the first half of the mag you will find an article of the cover star, about 4 pages, minus the pictures, one. You also get another section that is your ‘serious’ story, you know, the read on the train home one. It is normally extracted from a new book out and is genuinely worth reading. Nuts also has TV Listings for the week (Magazine comes out on a Thursday and therefore listings run Friday to Thursday). Now in tradition with the rest of the magazine, the listings tend to be as much ‘bloke’ as possible. This means your average soap gets no information regarding that day’s story. The problem is, programmes that Nuts consider good, get very brief comments that scream out ‘I Haven’t Got A Clue About Being A TV Reviewer’. The TV guide is 3 pages per day. One for terrestrial, one for sky/cable and the third is a selection of 4 ‘Pick Of The Day’ programmes. Anything shown between 6am and 7pm gets just the programme title listed with no information. There is also a section on reviews on new films, books, music etc. The section is called ’10 Second Review’ which means ‘Poorest Review Ever Produced’. Example of Freddy vs Jason DVD : “Heavyweights of horror Freddy Kreuger and Jason Friday the 13th Voorhees pummel seven shades out of each other.” 3 Stars. Now, I’ve never seen that film but I bet I could do better than that. The back part of the magazine contains about 15 pages of sport. Being a weekly magazine, this is quite up to date as a lot happens in a week (ask Beckham!). The main sports are covered well, a lot on Football with Rugby and Cricket
getting mentioned. Letters and jokes have a page each as well. ~Verdict I bought this magazine and 10 minutes later had finished reading it. It is poorly written (maybe by the Sunday Sport staff?) and has no depth at all. The magazine tries too hard to have this ‘bloke’ image that just doesn’t work. You may have seen the adverts, voiced by Johnny Vaughn, about ladies not expecting any help on a Thursday (Obviously, every man is reading this rubbish). Maybe no help for a few minutes, but all day, come on! At £1.20 I feel Nuts is a bit overpriced, they should have kept it at a round one pound. Buy it for a read on the toilet but not for entertainment.
