Announcing Issue 12: Happy Mag’s inaugural Sex Issue

Today we’re excited to officially announce Happy Mag Issue 12: our inaugural Sex Issue.

Happy Mag Issue 12 will paint a diverse picture of the great conundrum; what sex is, how it plays into our daily lives, and the lives of creatives in particular.

Announcing Happy Mag Issue 12, our inaugural Sex Issue. Featuring cover art by Australian artist Jess Cochrane.

Jess Cochrane is an Australian artist, currently based in London, whose work focuses on the contradictory and often misguided ideas surrounding beauty and feminine standards. Most of her art involves painting over photographic material, twisting the subject matter into images that are challenging and beautiful.

The Sex Issue will contain interviews and features representing the many voices of the sex industry and beyond, from sex workers to the woman holding the world’s only PhD in sex toy design. We’ll also be speaking to a range of artists and creatives, examining how sex, love, gender, and more influences their work.

As always, you can also expect comics, original artwork, and plenty of other goodness. The Sex Issue is out August 16th, the same day as our Issue 12 Launch. You can pre-order your copy right here.

And you can be in the mag! As part of the Sex Issue, we’re sending out an anonymous survey to our readers concerned with all things sex. To participate in the survey, click here. The first 100 responses from Australia will receive a free Happy sticker and some lube, courtesy of Überlube… just our way of saying thanks.
