There are enough professional bull riders to support a magazine dedicated to them.
The market for magazines targeted at men who want near porn but not actual porn is not satiated by Maxim, Stuff, FHM, etc:

If you are retired from the high-stakes world of international espionage but would like to keep up on the industry news, there is a magazine for you:
If you are a serious cheerleader or merely a cheerleader enthusiast/pedophile, there is a magazine for you:
Missing from this collection are two of my favorite obscure magazines, “Varmint Hunter Magazine” (click here to see a selection of the funniest cartoons taken from the magazine) and “Women & Guns Magazine,” which is just awesome. Women & Guns magazine is very similar to American Cheerleader in that the publication serves both the genuinely interested & the skulking masturbator crowd in one edition. As a proponent of reduced consumption, it’s delightful to me when one print edition can appeal to two audiences so efficiently.
