Mizer's AMG produced Physique Pictorial , the first all-nude and all-male magazine, and the film Beefcake documents his work and the growth of the Beefcake magazine industry. In the s, the pretense of being about exercise and fitness was dropped as controls on pornography were reduced. By the end of the decade gay pornography became legal, and the market for beefcake magazines collapsed. Young Physique magazine was a prime example of this genre. It had a centerfold with a young model wearing a posing strap g-string with creative sets designed by the well-known gay photographer James Bidgood. Showing total nudity was illegal before , so all models had to wear posing straps.

Looking Back On a Year of Physique Pictorial
History[ edit ] The formula used by AMG consisted of images moving and still of hunky young men doing bodybuilding poses, or perhaps wrestling in pairs or acting out improvised scenes. Mizer did appear in court to face several charges over the years, including obscenity, drug use, and prostitution. Allegedly, Mizer's AMG models would sometimes earn extra money "renting" themselves out as "gay for pay" hustlers, but Mizer argued vigorously that it was not his business what they did on their own time. Despite some legal setbacks, AMG survived its many trials. The AMG material sold in the form of photographic prints, magazines, and short films slowly evolved over time, from altered images where the male genitalia were "painted" over, to photographic prints where the models wore extremely skimpy posing straps, and then finally as the changing laws allowed to full nudity. He used his quarterly magazine, Physique Pictorial which featured other artists such as Tom of Finland , as means of advertising his material. Several bodybuilders and actors of the day got their start posing for Mizer and his friends at AMG.
