    Post What kind of magazines do the Japanese read ?

    This thread is a continuation of Do Japanese prefer money above all ?

They just aren't very skilled at making them sometimes
    My opinion from talking to all sorts of Japanese everyday (that's my job...) is that they do care a lot about food, sex and money.

    90% of men magazines are about sex, 90% of women magazines are about cooking and/or fashion (read shopping) or other sensual pleasures like massages, reflexology and assorted. When I went back to Europe last month, I was startled (positively so) at the variety of magazines, with more specialised hobbies and interest mags than Japanese could even dream of (cars, computers, video games, history, fishing-hunting, homemaking, real estate, travel, literature, sports, gossip, politics, electronics, gardening, spirituality, philosophy, religion, new age, architecture, arts... and of course the fashion and porn already available in Japan).
