Mouthfeel brings a whole new meaning to food porn.
Created by Mac Malikowski, the recently launched culinary magazine addresses a queer audience and juxtaposes photographs of food with photographs of naked men.
Malikowski was inspired to create the magazine after noticing homophobia in the restaurant industry.
He told The Cut,
I wasn't even out when I was washing dishes at Bar Boulud, but I learned how to say the word faggot in like, six different languages. I definitely feel like at the core of the food industry there's a lot of homophobia.
The 36-page magazine, which Malikowski describes as “food through a queer lens," is a distinctly new take on the food magazine format.
A lot of magazines fall into this cookie-cutter template of what's beautiful, and we wanted to get away from that. We have more of a raw, flavorful texture.
Though the first issue of Mouthfeel is already sold out, the digital edition went live on Tuesday. Check out some (NSFW) photos from the unique publication below.
