Women’s Mags Love To Host A Threesome

July Shape.

Finding the right arrangement of so much flesh, navigating the geometry of so many bodies; striking the right mood to nourish an emotional attachment (it’s always better when there’s feelings involved, they say): The agony of hosting a threesome makes the ecstasy so much sweeter. Just ask Cindy Seabright, creative director of Self magazine, who is working on a ‘triples’ cover for her October issue.

From Folio:

“I blocked it out in the hallway with a digital camera, especially since all three actresses have very different body types,” said Searight. “I did a mock up, and then a sketch from the mock up so that when I went to the studio, I could show the actresses where I envisioned them.” While shooting each actress separately and working design magic later isn’t out of the question, for Self’s cover Searight said that editorially she wanted the models to have “an emotional attachment.”

Shape magazine was the last women’s title to execute a triple, according to Folio, arranging country singers LeAnn Rimes, Martina McBride and Julianne Hough. Self‘s cover, hitting newsstands on September 22, will feature actresses Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Malin Ackerman, who also appear together in the forthcoming movie “Couple’s Retreat,” albeit with more space between them.

Self‘s logo takes up almost 50 percent of usable space on the cover, according to Seabright, so just squeezing three bodies onto the same page is half the battle. Which makes us think that a plus-sized triplet cover would be really impressive.
