On the cover of this month’s Marie Claire is a pregnant Megan Gale, posing naked (but covered).

Why?

In a normal ‘naked model’ situation, Megan would be on the cover of FHM or some other male entertainment magazine, and voted the world’s sexiest woman.

Now she is pregnant, she is handed back to reality, but in order to keep the brand going during her confinement, she must diversify and find other ways to remain naked and visible.

That’s exactly what I was thinking during my pregnancies: how the fuck am I going to get to stay naked publicly during my pregnancy?  I WANT PICTURES.

My question is: who is this image for?  It’s a women’s magazine.  Are women going to take the magazine to bed and fantasize about pregnant Megan Gale?  Are men going to?  Even less likely.

What is the function of naked pregnant women on the cover of women’s magazines?

It is to remind women that they are of the body.  The heroic act of pregnancy is submerged under a raft of constructs around being sexy, being desired.

If you can’t get the desire from the men any more, try the women!

And we can look forward to the post pregnancy FHM cover of Megan with her post-pregnancy body, when she hands herself back to male entertainment, once more.
