I was sent an issue of Complex magazine, and I think that the publication could best be described as a cross between Maxim and SkyMall. Take the content of Maxim, get rid of the articles, and replace them with pictures of expensive things to buy. It's half a catalog of products and half pictures of attractive women. There are a variety of magazines that exist solely to contain advertisements for things that people might want to buy, not containing any actual news or information, so I guess it makes perfect sense to combine pictures of things that men would like to buy with pictures of things that men would like to have sex with.

It's weird, yet... compelling...

How amusing that a magazine named Complex would have such a simple formula.
