Good looking guys in long-term relationships are apparently so scarce that Genre had to invent ‘em.
The New York-based monthly recently released an issue examining long-term relations. The cover, as you can see, shows two hunky men who are presented as a couple. An astute reader, however, informs us that one of the models, Julian Fantechi, once appeared in Playgirl and, in fact, likes ladies. Writes the reader: “Inside the magazine, they are stripped down, appear to be into each other, and are allegedly, discussing their physical relationship, emotional, sexual and spiritual relationship. This is not reality, here! The guy on the left is Playgirlís Man of the Year. The link is to his website and his Inside Hollywood interviews. He even puts Genre on his resume.”
And here’s one of those Hollywood interviews with Julian Fantechi—just for, you know, the record and shit.
UPDATE: Genre didn’t just imply the guys on the cover were a couple, the editors stated that as fact in emails sent out to bloggers and journalists. Andy at Towleroad quotes from Genre the press release he received…
On the cover this month, Genre bravely put forth a reality couple, and not the typical models who hold perfection over our heads. Our message is simple. Reach for forever. Genre can help you get there.
Hm… Genre bravely put forth a “reality couple,” whatever that means. Says Andy…
I’m a former editor of Genre, and as a side note, when we did our “relationships” issue there was no shortage of hot, interesting real-life couples dying to tell their stories to the magazine.
