Now that Stereophile sports an add for Viagra/Cialis/Levitra in the back each month I can only assume that the advertiser has found its target audience, ageing guys who like to listen to music alone in the dark.

Marty, your (typically hilarious) post reminded me of a Valentine's Day tradition of a DJ at a local radio station here. Back to back, he'd play "Momma's Got a Squeebox", followed by "Pictures of Lily" - for those of you who have Valentines as well as those of you who don't...
And, is there a group of writers better equipped to do a "And, I'm not only the ABC president, I'm also a client" ad for those meds as the Stereophile staff?
Just stumbled upon this post. Maybe we could start a new rag, call it StereosportsIllustrated. Have babes in bikinis (made of acoustically inert material of course, wouldnt want nasty reflections off those puppies) listening to high end systems. We could even have readers send in their votes for Miss Tweeters of the Year! (I was going to say Miss Woofer but that just doest say much about a girl's looks).We could even have the anuual Interconnect tug-of-war betweeen two all-female teams, with different brands sponsoring the event.Anyways, sorry,have to run-its Hef calling on my cell to discuss some seed money!
I think it is a great idea that if SI can do a swimsuit issue to boost sales, then why not an audio rag also?
I'm sure the girls can listen to music at least as well as they might be able to compete in the NFL, MLB, NBA, etc.
Actually, I'm surprised more big time high end audio vendors don't pursue this particular marketing route. HAving the hot babes involved in the marketing surely must make their gear sound better to more guys you would think. But would this result in a hotter or warmer sound? Hopefully not colder. Further research is required.....
