50 Controversial VICE Magazine Features

Suggestive Snapshots and Revealing Editorials

— April 4, 2012 — Naughty
Originally based in Canada, VICE Magazine has progressively developed a devoted international following. Now recognized for its ability to consistently push the envelope, the publication has opted in favor of all things taboo from the get-go. Readers of the magazine have consistently expressed their satisfaction with the articles, if not for their daring topics, then for their excellent write-ups.

VICE Magazine has developed an impressive penchant for its following of censored subject matter. Transsexual lifestyle, drug-abusing models, and just about anything sexually suggestive has been favored by the VICE team. What's more is that the media conglomerate does not attempt to sugar coat their controversial slant. The images selected for the spreads are straight forward, and are often the only references needed to comprehend the message of the editorials.

In sum, VICE Magazine has successfully pioneered a highly provocative genre, and it has done so in an intelligible manner. This considerable feat has opened the air waves to previously forbidden issues, and has thus broadened the scope of the communication industry.
