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.

    Its a very sexual cover, i find it non threatening nor abusive, he is not chocking her, his hold is one off sexual tension licking his fingers, her ear, cupping her breast... Do gooders get over it!

    If his hand were on her chest or shoulders, this wouldn't even be a discussion.

    Has it occurred to people that some others out there like to be chocked during sex? Or that they think it's hot? Besides, his hand is hardly gripping her throat.

    People just ASSume to many things.

    It doesn't look violent, she doesn't look like she is trying to fight him off, and some people are into that. If anything, it just looks lusty, and sensual.

    Besides that, his hand isn't tight enough around her neck to choke her, so it looks more like he's just tilting her head to the side to get more neck (awful turn of phrase, sorry).

    I don't read VOGUE, anyway!! Nothing of interest fr me! There are many men that equate VIOLENCE WITH SEXUAL PLEASURE !! There are those people that would equate sexual foreplay as PLying hard to get !! There are a lot of women that LOVE VIOLENCE WITH SEX !!

    Not to show off my kink, but I don't mind it when my boyfriend holds (holds being the keyword -- that model is NOT choking Seymour) me like that...it's very, very, very much a turn on. I hope I don't look as dead in the eyes as she does, though. He's all over her and she's like "Meh."

    Heck no. Choking a woman from behind that you just met that day for a one shot modeling job isn't domestic abuse! It is a depiction of sexual abuse! Bogue just wants to shock for the advertising value on its controversial cover. Any one with a right mind knows this is just an advert, but our brains instinctively see abuse!

    That type of foreplay can be titillating to some, but the vacant look in her eyes just doesn't sell it, IMO.

    It doesn't look violent. Doesn't even really look like he's choking her. It just looks intimate. People are way too sensitive these days.

    It doesn't look like she is being choked to me. How stupid to even try and promote this as anything but a magazine cover which in the scheme of all things, matters not one piece of dust.
