Sofa Issue 3 Masculinity
The third issue of Sofa magazine tackles one of the most fascinating and controversial topics of today: men, masculinity and male identity and power in transformation.
While orbiting the new frontiers of intimate pow-wows on ‘trigger topics’ like #MeToo, and boy body image, the deep influence of porn, love on social media, sad boys, men’s mental health, dad complexes, sexual personaes, Virgil Abloh, Gucci and more, we uncover some hidden truths under the surface of male bravado. Our cover interview with Maurice Ernst, the lead singer of Austrian rockstars Bilderbuch, reveals more of the shifting realities beneath the glitz of alpha male culture. By giving voice to men’s thoughts and feelings at a key moment of history — when boys and men have never been socialized or encouraged to express vulnerability — SOFA III captures the zeitgeist that everyone is longing for.
