What does BADI mean?
- Badi, stylized as Bʌ́di, is a monthly Japanese magazine for gay men. The title comes from the Japanese pronunciation of "buddy." Badi is published by Terra Publications. Gay magazines in Japan, along with much gay culture, are segregated by "type"; most are aimed at an audience with specific interests. Badi frequently has approximately 500-1000 pages, including several pages of glossy colour and some black and white photographs and drawings of young, fit men in their teens and early twenties. Despite the pornographic pictures and stories, however, Badi is not mainly a pornographic magazine. Badi appeals to a young market. It features fashion, health and relationship articles and community news and event listings as well as the stories — often pornographic and several in comic form — common to all gay men's magazines in Japan. There are also advertisements from gay-related and gay-friendly businesses such as spas, clubs and hotels, bars, cafes and restaurants, host bars, brothels, and retail shops.
