My thesis aims to explore the one dimensionality of lads’ mags in terms of how they represent beauty and the female body, analysing how the body is constructed in the magazines and what the wider messages about gender and sexuality are.

I’ve conducted interviews, an online survey and content analysis of the magazines in order to get behind people’s perceptions of lads’ mags in an attempt to understand how the body is perceived the way it is.
