Issue #3 has three homoerotic stories that involve punk musicians, exhibitionism, dominance, submission, and sex. First, during a band video taping at Club Death, Danny, the lead singer for Bad Noise band, is stripped, gagged, restrained, and flagellated by the rest of the band members as a revenge for stealing all the attention. In second story, a fraternity-wrestling match turns into sexual humiliation, submission, and anal sex. Finally, GNIC Would Sneer, ‘Eat Me!’ is a reprinted story from Homoture fanzine #1. During a music concert, Fuckface, the band singer, provides Gnic, the music critic, an oral sex as part of his performance in front of the audience.
In addition, Mike Bullshit from the band Go is featured. And Scoop McCoy reviews Fertile La Toyah Jackson, Frighten the Horses, Gawk, Holy Titclamps, Homocore #6, Homoture, JD’s, Poser Scene, Way Cool, and About Box A.
“Wow! It’s about time I got to review something sexy here. Fucking great – lots of stories about unsuspecting straight boys being seduced by macho punk fags. Pictures of shirtless punk band members. Geared towards punk guys. This is the kind of thing that a mostly homophobic punk scene would hate, which is one reason you should get it” (Matt, 1991, p. 40).
