Physical Description In addition to small photos and pictorial works of nude and nearly nude men, the issues for November 1951-Feb. 1952 primarily contain information on ordering photographs and prints from various American physique photography and artist studios. Beginning with the August 1952 issue, the photos become larger with physical descriptions and biographical information about the male models and the ordering information is smaller and limited to background advertising. Male models are wearing posing straps or are strategically photographed so as to comply with United States postal service and federal regulations regarding obscenity and pornography. Beginning with 1970 issue, photographs of male full frontal nudity are now included in each issue.
