What do Shin and Yuu in the comic Change Over look like in real life? Stupid question, I know. Because Shin and Yuu don’t exist in reality – they are just comic book characters, drawn by shotacon master Tsukumo Gou.
But if they did exist in reality, this is how I picture them. (Photo found at Achille’s Accord.)
Shy but horny Yuu on the right. And Shin on the left, with his hard attitude but soft (and moist) inside. Do you agree?

A message to our Swedish readers: Don’t miss the new tv series I Zlatans fotspår, in which Zlatan Ibrahimović’s former trainers put together a dream team of the best teenage football players they have found in smaller clubs. It premieres tonight at 22.30, but already now you can watch the whole programme here:
I Zlatans fotspår
The first episode was great. I have only one concern: Where are the girls? Is it really fair to make a show like this without making sure that at least half the team members are female? I can’t wait for the first debate article on the subject.
We have argued, for example in Destroyer 04, that the success of the gay identity is one of the reasons why men in general, and especially teenage boys, have stopped having sex with each other. What used to be referred to as “fooling around” up til about 40 years ago, suddenly became “gay”. Keep that in mind when you read this:
Teenage yobs strip and beat up lad, 13
Three teenage boys subjected a terrified youngster to a horrific torture ordeal, a court heard.
They laughed as they stripped, kicked and beat the 13-year-old lad with wire for “grassing” them over a stolen bike.
Their victim was ordered to climb a tall metal tower and jump off – then stoned when he refused.
Finally the two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old put the boy in a metal drum and rolled it along.
He was left with head and facial injuries.
Before Stonewall, these boys would have let out their energy in other ways. (Full story here.)
The 14-year-old Japanese schoolboy met the 13-year-old schoolgirl online and convinced her to sell sex to him. He claimed to be 18 years old, which he thought would be more tempting for the girl than to have sex with a 14-year-old. Full story here.
on Thursday Destroyer’s long summer break begins. It will last for one month, so if you want a magazine to ship before the break, please place your order on Wednesday (July 8th, 2009) the latest.
Of course you can order during our summer break too, but the magazines won’t ship until we’re back (August 13th, 2009).
However, downloads will continue to be available immediately upon purchase, and so I decided to make up for my long leave by offering you something that I know that many of you want: More issues as pdf files!
As of today, Destroyer 05, 06, 07 and 08 are available as pdf downloads!
A new feature is that you can choose an extra high quality version of each magazine.
The standard quality is good – it’s the same 100 dpi quality that Destroyer 06 has had ever since it was released as a pdf file.
But the 144 dpi high quality version will hopefully satisfy those of you who have e-mailed me about wanting higher image resolution. If you’re picky or plan to print the magazine, this is the version for you.
With that, I wish you all a great summer!
Which cover of Destroyer do you like most? Never mind if it’s the boy or the graphic design that does it for you, choose one favourite in the poll on the right, and feel free to comment on your choice in this post!
About half of all orders of Destroyer 09 have now shipped, a whole week ahead of schedule. The rest will ship tomorrow.
The magazine looks totally stunning – I got it Friday. Happy reading, everyone!
I’m immensily proud to announce Destroyer 09. Why? Because of Nicola, a Swedish amateur photographer who took loads and loads of photos of beautiful boys in Naples in the 1970s. Some of them were published in the gay magazines of the time, but most of them were simply buried in Nicola’s drawers. Until now. In a 22-page double feature, we publish the best of Nicola’s photos in colour and black and white, along with an interview with Nicola himself, where he talks about the uniqueness of Naples and how it all suddenly changed to the worse in the 80s. I cannot enough emphasize the following: You do not want to miss this! D9 is the hottest issue of Destroyer since D2, which featured the 10-page interview with Cosidetto and was sold out only weeks after the release. D2 was printed in 1000 copies, D9 will be printed in 2000 copies. However, be warned that they might go very fast.
As usual, you can purchase Destroyer at Ilovemags.com! D9 will ship mid-June 2009.
The whole content of Destroyer 09 reads:
- Nicola of Napoli – 22-page double feature with previously unpublished photos from Naples in the 70s + interview with the photographer.
- Reviews of novels by Horatio Alger, Jr., Poppy Z Brite and William Beckford + two new photo books.
- Art Bernard – interview with the artist.
- Photo reportage: Young wrestlers and young boxers.
- Chronik der Schwulen – interview with the author Dietmar Kreutzer.
- Contributions by Italian artist duo Luigi & Luca, and by Daniel Björk, editor in chief of the Swedish magazine Rodeo.
Some teasers from the black and white section of Nicola’s photos:
With this I wish you all a great weekend!
No one but a teenage boy could pull it off in this outfit!
I have two contradictory views on boys and fashion:
1. Fashion is made for teenage boys. It frames their beauty like the feathers of a peacock.
2. Fashion is made for everyone else. It lends us attributes that the teenage boy, our ideal, possesses naturally.
