My Guy, June 23rd 1979

My Guy magazine launched in March 1978, marketing itself as Jackie's edgier cousin. For just 16p you could get your weekly fix of boys, boys, boys. This issue has a photo stories about an evil doll, an unwanted house guest, and an over friendly friend of the family. Then there's a pin up poster of Robin Williams, a short story about ice skating, and the best advert for Lil-lets.

My Guy magazine, June 1979
I've tried a new format this week, mainly because this is a long 'bumper' issue and uploading individual pages was too daunting a task! You can read it as a magazine via Yumpu, or click HERE for a full PDF.


Don't forget to find out whether or not you're sexy! I got 45 which makes me a happy medium, apparently.

  2. I haven't read this magazine before :-( I guess my old memories are about magazines that I was able to read back home in Peru. Having said that, this magazine looks super cool!! ;-) Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. Merry Christmas to you and your family and Happy New Year 2016. I hope to see you in the New Year! :-) xx

    1. I love all the old magazines! I'm slowly selling off my collection though and keeping the digital files instead. I need the space! And you, I hope you have a great Christmas! :D
