Maybe consumers have grown to become uber-sensitive to things that are cutting-edge and a little controversial, but some critics are definitely upset about the latest cover of Vogue Hommes Internationale, where model Stephanie Seymour is being choked from behind by a male model.

Critics find the cover, which was shot by the popular-yet-edgy photographer Terry Richardson, unsexy and say that it sends the wrong message to both men and women. Do you think the cover is too much? Or are its critics being a bit too particular?

NYDAILYNEWS.COM reports:
What’s in Vogue for the international male? Choking and groping, say anti-domestic violence advocates. Critics say the cover, shot by envelope-pushing photographer Terry Richardson is decidedly unsexy and sends both men and women a terrible message.

    He isn't choking her. He is holding her chin and head up, fixed, so he can kiss the nape of her neck and ears. Most women that I know find this gentle control incredibly sexy and arousing, not violent or disrespectful.

    Violence against women sells. Look at the plethora of CSI shows - almost 100% about crimes against women. And the Lifetime network should be called the Abused Women channel.

    I'm sorry, but is this the 1940's? This photo isn't all that controversial. Kinda kinky actually.

    Okay - his hand is pretty loose - I don't see this as choking. If that is politically incorrect - sorry.

    Some girls... Or boys, like it rough.


    It makes sense that Terry Richardson, of all people, took the photo.

    It looks kinda sensual in a way or maybe it's just me. They did do a poor job in getting their point across with this picture of that I am sure.....and eww why is he licking his finger like that he looks gay
  • me MarkelF... 2012/09/24 15:11:45

    Yeah, I think it was meant to be that he was leaning in to lick her ear but the way the photo was taken it came out looking like licking his finger. LOL

    Domestic violence? What, she forgot to make dinner and her punishment is a mind blowing orgasm? How harsh... where do they live? The Playboy mansion?

    Will she punish him next with a spanking?
    punishment mind blowing orgasm harsh live playboy mansion punish spanking
    Will this be considered abuse as well... maybe if he forgets the safe word perhaps.

    But what's violent about it? That was the question, not whether it was "depraved".

    It's called roleplaying...pretending but some women may be sensitive to this cover due to PTSD from an actual sexual abuse.

    Does it look like she's frightened? Does it look like she's protesting? Looks pretty consensual to me, even if it is staged.
