Product Description

Product Description

Maxim is the essential guide for today's active male consumer. Every issue features fashion, sports, gadgets/gear, sex advice, music & movie reviews all in an entertaining and irreverent style where humor is a key element.

Amazon.com Review

Priding itself on its reputation as the ultimate guide for guys, Maxim magazine offers readers an irreverent take on the passions and pursuits of the millennial male. Written with a tongue-in-cheek vibe, the magazine manages to inject humor into the most serious of topics, even as it educates and informs. From glossy shots of bikini-clad beauties and candid interviews with the hottest starlets in Hollywood to in-depth analyses of controversial topics and biting features on true crime stories, each issue is full of testosterone-driven fun.

Maxim magazine is not your father's men's magazine. Its snarky tone and sarcastic wit offer a satirical take on every imaginable topic, such as pop culture, politics, love, and war. The question and answer column often provides hilarious advice with little real-world value, while humor columns give you jokes to share with your buddies at the water cooler or your next poker game. With a wink and a nudge, the unique style of this publication distinguishes it from others of its kind.

With a finger to the pulse of what's important to the modern male, Maxim magazine dedicates lots of room to exploring the latest trends. Within its pages, you'll find reviews of the newest video games, helping you separate the truth from the hype. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate its suggestions for everything from snowboards to climbing gear, while its unpretentious recommendations of the latest fashions provide easy ways to enhance your personal style.

With its cheeky tone and flippant treatment of serious subjects, a subscription to Maxim magazine gives you an alternative take on the world around you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Used to be better February 12, 2002
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I've been reading Maxim since about issue #3. I used to really enjoy the magazine: their witty remarks and interviews with the monthly babes and product reviews were both entertaining and interesting. However, I'm now letting my subscription run out. Maxim has went through something like 3 editors since I've been reading and the magazine is getting progressively worse.
Maxim used to taste test microwave and fast food-type items and give them real, insightful ratings/reviews...things like pizza rolls, pizza pockets, etc. Now there's a fictional person named Hiroki, who does tests on stupid foods. So instead of "One tester said, 'Red Barron pizza had a crispy crust, but was a bit greasy,'" we're left with "Hiroki said the edible panties, 'Taste like chicken. Yum.'"
Another area where Maxim disappoints is in the number of advertisements. The magazine is now significantly thicker and stuffed with ads. In fact, I have ripped the first 10 pages or so out of my last several issues because those first 10 pages are all advertisements!
Maxim also puts a lot of emphasis on their women, who have decreased in quality (read: not as good looking). They do some heavy duty tweaking on the computer too; all of the models look like their skin is made of polished copper.
Maxim has called me no less than 4 times to get me to renew my subscription...I HATE telemarketers! The last time they called I finally asked to be removed from their calling list. They have been sending me "this is your last chance to renew letters" for about 4 months. Great, more junk mail.
Don't get me wrong, Maxim isn't a terrible magazine, but I don't think it's worth subscribing to anymore. You might want to stick to buying it on an issue-by-issue basis, or get the old issues from your friend. Save your subscription money for something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't do it! -- Pick one of these magazines instead November 29, 2008
Subscription Term Name:2 years
Maxim rode the men's magazine gold rush in the late 1990s, leading Stuff, FHM and a host of other PG-13 fare that filled the convenience store racks as Playboy, Penthouse and the hard cores were either dropped completely or were tucked behind the clerk hidden behind individual black plastic wrappers.

Maxim is the last Laddie still in print in the U.S., having witnessed the print burials for FHM (1996 to 2007) and Stuff (1998 to 2007). Maxim's putrefaction is evident to its subscribers, hence the heavily discounted subscriber rates available today. If you were unfortunate enough to receive a gift subscription to Maxim or, worse yet, bought one for yourself, you can no doubt bear witness to the decay. The magazine simply isn't interesting or compelling to read. You could find more of everything - women, entertainment, food and fashion - in a 10-minute Google search.

Ask yourself, why are you buying a men's magazine?

Want to admire beautiful women? Choose Playboy or Penthouse.

Want to stay healthy and fit? Choose Men's Health (preferred) or Men's Fitness (for younger audiences).

Want to peruse fashion and lifestyle? Choose Esquire or GQ (beware the cologne samples though).

Want a little of everything? Choose Details or Men's Journal.

Pick any of the above options, especially if you are buying a gift subscription. Just avoid Maxim.

1.0 out of 5 stars Maxim has gone downhill big time November 14, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I've been a loyal subscriber since 1998 and have always enjoyed the magazine. Something happened to them in early 2006 - they've either been bought or have hired a new editor / staff or something. This magazine is absolutely terrible now. All ads, fewer and fewer pictures of babes in each issue, and the hilarious articles are now long gone. My last two issues (Sept and Oct) were in the trash within minutes of pulling them from my mailbox. I'm canceling my subscription.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cover to cover advertising, virtually zero content April 18, 2006
By M. King
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Once upon a time this was a good magazine worth reading cover to cover. Unfortunately they've slowly been replacing content with more and more advertising. As the magazine currently stands you could probably finish reading the actual "content" in about an hour. The rest is advertising and BS. This magazine jumped the shark a long long time ago. Just let it die already like it's supposed to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what it used to be, but still a good candidate November 16, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I thought the original goal of Maxim was the be the next GQ, but with more skin and less pretense. The skin is there (and, no, guys don't care about the software editors use to enhance the models), but the substance is not.
Like every other checkout stand mag, ads now fill the lion's share of Maxim's pages. Reviews are more and more insipid, covering things many men probably don't care about. The humor is still respectable for the crowd it's aimed at.
I guess Maxim is the magazine for guys who can't read.... or need a hipper supplement to whatever nude mags litter their desks. Bottom line: if you want a skin mag, go with Maxim, but be aware that the level of wit and intelligence is declining all around.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer's remorse August 11, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Talk about going downhill.

I had subscribed to Maxim for about 2 years back around 2000/2001 and enjoyed every single issue. They were all great reading. Sure, the chicks are nice to look at, but porn totally trumps them there, so it's the meat of the mag that kept my subscriptions rolling. Eventually, I went into school and, being the penny-pincher that I was and with the promotional price of a subscription finally hitting its end, I let it run out.

Well, here we are years later in 2007 and I get another promotional subscription offer. Remembering the manly goodness, I send in my check and, after a few weeks, receive my first issue. On my next trip to the toilet, I crack open my first Maxim in years... and what the @#%$ happened? First of all, the magazine is half the size it used to be, but not only that, but the ads-to-content ratio has gotten ridiculous. The content that is there is decent so far, but compared to what it used to be, it's pretty disappointing. And here I am, with another 11 months worth of these things coming to me. Ah, well, at least I'm only out 10 bucks.

Maxim: what happened?

Did anyone else get a Maxix without subscribing?
It happened to me. A magazine that went out of business flipped my subscription over to Maxim without my approval.
