AMERICA'S NEW MALE BODY OBSESSION

It's official: The male gaze has turned upon itself, and American men are focused on their physiques as never before. From Marky Mark's abs and the transformation of Marc Jacobs to the rise of Abercrombie & Fitch and the fall of Anthony Weiner, here are the 41 moments that changed the way we look in the mirror.

MODERN FAMILY

Plural relationships aren't just for swingers and cult leaders anymore. Today guys are settling into polyandrous relationships—multiple men, a single chick—and it looks a lot more like conventional marriage than you might think.

APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION

Kitchen prodigies like Brandon Baltzley, who at 26 has already been a chef at more than a half dozen of the top restaurants in America, don't come around often. But the high he got from cooking was one he could never separate from his other cravings—first for heavy metal, then for alcohol, and most destructively for cocaine (he also used weed, Vicodin, acid, mushrooms, and crack). Now the man who could be America's next great chef is cooking for his life.
