'Circus' Knows How to Make Use of a Bombshell, Among Other Things

sophia-loren.jpg

Circus is this brilliant boomer lifestyle magazine that describes itself like this:

"Debate, discussion and controversy. Let's talk about the over 50s."

The third page of its February issue featured this gorgeous image of Sophia Loren perched just above the lower margin, drawing plenty of attention to the articles around her (mainly because we were scouring the text going "Who is that girl?!").

We also got to check out the magazine. It includes raunchy boomer poetry, sex and business talk, and spiffy little featurettes like The Ad that Never Ran. (Think Thatcher and Scottish oil. Feeling greasy?)

Anyway, it's refreshing to see a senior publication that's not splattered with AARP messages and bladder control ads. It also looks like an awesome resource for boomer culture.

Here's to hoping they're still around when we're pushing 50 and looking for saucy reading material.

Circus used to be a cool rock mag back in the 70s...

...not that that soothes the wound of you saying "when we're pushing 50".
