My question is,

You really don't want to know the answer to this.

Yeah, I do.

No, you don't. You wondered if men really like Maxim, but you didn't bother to spend 7 seconds to find out. All you have to do is go to Google and find Maxim's readership numbers. They're obligated to state precisely how many magazines they print and how many subscriptions they have.

And the number is... 2.5 million.

The US population is (roughly) 300 million. That's 150 million males. Delete the children and elderly and it's roughly 100 million adult males. So Maxim reaches a whopping... 2.5% of males?

Now what does that tell you?
