In the 14th issue of Tush magazine (not to be confused with Butt magazine), photographer Armin Morbach pioneers the art of strategically placing merchandise near unzipped flies. "Morbach captured male model Michael D in assorted styles, from speedos and suits to casual and funky outfits. But the shot was focused on the crotch area, which the model grabs in the photos, bringing the attention to the watches on his wrist." It's like every ad that has ever included a pair of boobs, but with men. And just like that, another glass ceiling shatters. [Trend Hunter]
