I've received my copy, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet.

The good: The whole magazine is presented tastefully, the articles are interesting, and the Cupid's Toy Box sections are useful in that they get you interested in new things to try.

The bad: wish it were thicker

So seriously y'all sent me two? But the upside...J is quite happy with his copy in Iraq and we may be planing to go see a burlesque show when he comes home Thanks to EF he is going to have on hell of a homecoming!!!

The pictures are absolutely gorgeous! I have to agree with Alan & Michele, the only downside is that it isn't thicker!

Like everyone else, I love the pictures. The colors are so sleek and brilliant! The little Cupid's Toy Box review snippets were very cute as well. I managed to read the whole issue from cover to cover in under half an hour, and then flipped through it again to see if I missed anything. If at all possible, I'd love to see a thicker magazine. I know it's a polybagged insert, so it can't get too hefty, and you also have printing costs to consider, but I'm a real content hog when it comes to magazines.

In other news, I got a total of four issues somehow o_O I requested a free copy, and then another copy was slid in with my latest review product from EF, and then I got the envelope containing two more copies. So what choice did I have but to share the pretty shinies? My roommate loved looking at my first copy, so I gave her her own copy. She loves burlesque (esp. Dita von Teese) so she really enjoyed the cover story. She asked me if she could have another copy to give to her gay male friend.

So now I have one more copy to give. I was actually thinking of leaving it out in my dorm's dining hall. Any ideas?

I was very impressed by the magazine! The cover is bright and hawt, and the articles were well written and appealingly presented. Even Sigel thought it was a very good first printing, so many times you look back on a magazine's first edition and it just seems "lacking". I don;t think that'll be the case here, it'll just get better.

Awesome sauce! I am putting it away and I'll take it out in a few years and reminisce...good times, good times!

It's great! I thought it was very tastefully done, but I was wishing for me.

I absolutely love it! I can't wait for the next one to be printed! Maybe the next one can have a lot more to it. This one was great, but would have been better if it had more awesome info and columns in it. =)

I agree with this! I also wish it was thicker! I read it all in about 30 minutes.

Also, will we be receiving all future issues for free? I hope so, but if not, I will have to hunt them down every month! I don't live close to any stores that might sell Bust magazine, but I will be willing to travel for it! Seriously, I love EF, and reading that magazine and recognizing names and faces was really a lot of fun. I feel like I'm part of a really cool sex toy family!

I liked reading the picks from Saraid and Sammi and Sleeping Dreamer. More stuff from our reviewers would be fun, maybe some kind of regular feature. Maybe some community polls? I definitely liked it though, and I agree it could definitely be longer

Yes, I like it. I would like to see longer, more in depth articles. The pics are great as is the overall layout. It is obvious much thought and work went into this.
Articles by EF reviewers, as mentioned above, would be welcome. There is so much talent in the EF Community!
And a big "thank you" for Sexis!!!

It seems like "Make it longer!!!!" is unanimous

Guess what...we are! And we're including more community quotables and such too. You're gonna love it. BUT we still need more feedback...so keep it coming!

I got mine in the mail last week and was pleasantly surprised. There were quite a few very interesting articles, but they all felt like teasers for longer articles. I noticed that at least in the case of the Tristan Taormino interview my gut reaction was right ... I'm looking forward to reading the rest of that interview online when I get a chance. She always gives a good interview.

So I guess I'd like to see more in-depth articles, rather than having them all trimmed down to a single page the way they were in this issue. Even if it means having fewer articles total, it would make it feel more like a "real" magazine if each article feels more fleshed-out. The way it is right now feels more like just an ad for a magazine, rather than a magazine itself.

But great job. I know it must be hard to launch a print publication, especially at a time like this when periodicals are failing left and right.

I received Sexis with my subscription to Bust and it's exactly why I'm here right now.

It's from a female perspective, very sex-positive, really funny and even quite educational. I think it's great and I'd LOVE to contribute to it in any way possible.

I loved the pictures with them, but I do agree with those that have said make it longer! I do understand that this was probably a sort of trial basis, though, so caution was needed as far as expenses go. I also got two copies and will be sharing one with a girlfriend!

I really loved the mag!

Quite enjoyable of a read, and the art! The art was amazing!

Thanks for sending me a copy, really loved it!

I agree with the make it longer part! And maybe have a community column, where a member of the community is either chosen by staff, or voted to write a article. Maybe let members submit potential articles and the staff decide on the submitted articles

I'm glad everybody else wants to make it longer too.

You could maybe select a review you thought was awesome and present that, include more reviewers (not necessarily a whole article on every one), you could present the top reviewers and newer reviewers you think show some great promise.

And I love the history lessons, so something similar to the article on burlesque or something where you delve into the history of why we have something we have now would be really sweet as well.

Not to be a naysayer - but I do want to point out that this is Sexis Magazine not just 'EF Magazine' - so while we definitely include the community in the magazine, we are trying to focus broadly on sex education and social issues with some product info and review blurbs. I hope that makes sense to everyone.

My first thought when I got the notice that contributors would be getting free copies was "Christ, I hope the postmaster doesn't see it" (I live in a small town)! So naturally, I was thrilled that it was in an opaque envelope Big smile

Honestly, I didn't have very high expectations and expected it to be trashy but not interesting. I am happy to say though, that I actually loved every article. My favorite was "Canoodling in Kolkata" which provided stimulating conversation for me and my (Indian) boyfriend who find the lines of cultural norms to be often blurred. I also enjoyed "Syncing your sexual clocks" and felt just a little more normal after reading that my partner and my desire schedule is part of the biological norm.

I was also happy to get two, so I shared one with a friend and put the other out in my waiting room (I'm a midwife).

In echoing others, I would have liked to see it be longer, although it' just as well that's it short with no advertisements! I'm a public television and radio junkie, so I'm all about SEXIS being ad-free ;-) In contrast to what others have said, I actually really liked the "teaser" length of the articles. It took just a few minutes to read an engaging article. Lengthy articles (even ones I'm really interested in) tend to lose my interest after page 2.

I can't wait for the next issue.

That makes sense to me, and I don't see it as naysaying either.

And personally, I think my favorite bit out of the whole little magazine was the top 40 completely messed up things people are thinking while they're having sex with you. My fiance was texting them to me while I was at work the day I got my edition because he got a chance to read it before I did. And I thought it was great that it appealed to both of us and not just one or the other. Too much rambling? lol
