So you’ve got an undying love for old school pornographic magazines that you want to shout from the mountaintops, but you know gluing crumpled old pages of skin mags to your pale, clammy, naked body and running through the streets is sure to get you arrested, so you’re at a loss for how to express your affection. We’ve all been there, right?

No? Oh… uh… yeah, me neither.

But one deranged ingenious Japanese artist found a way to show the world that porn is just the bee’s knees, without a stint in the slammer!

This is the work of Twitter user and hobbyist (or artist, depending on how generous you are) luckydog505, who says he’s painstakingly recreated 1/6 scale exact replicas of some porno mags he found.

Now, if you’re thinking it’s a little suspicious that he *air quotes* “found” a couple of titillating adult magazines just laying around, you probably haven’t spent much time in Japan. Where in the U.S. and, I’m sure, a lot of other Western countries, the porn magazines were generally found stashed under your older brother’s mattress, in Japan, erotic magazines (ero-hon) are so ubiquitous that most kids get their first taste when they accidentally stumble on some discarded volumes on their way home from school.

Indeed, our intrepid artist says the whole goal of his little crafts project was to recreate that feeling of gleefully dark excitement of discovering a (nearly) intact magazine right in the palm of your hand.

Well, one man’s trash is another’s treasure, we guess.
