Farewell, FHM. Goodbye, Zoo.

The time of the lad mag is over.

Changing media consumption habits, political correctness and the easy access to racy content online have made the printed lad mag a dinosaur in the media landscape, with former British stalwarts FHM and Zoo being the latest print titles to go extinct.

Having worked as managing editor in two lad mags that have closed myself, I truly commisserate.

RIP, FHM. RIP, Zoo. RIP to every magazine that served as a best friend, aider and abettor, instructor, enabler, informer, entertainer and influence to every lad around the world.
