Men’s Health, Taking Cues from Maxim?

There's nothing like a practically naked woman to grab a man's attention. That said, it struck as somewhat odd when we noticed this photo as part of the annual gift guide featured in the December issue of Men's Health, on newsstands Tuesday.

The editors used a number of photos from a shoot with Dania Ramirez-a star on the hit NBC television show "Heroes"-throughout the gift guide package. The best way, apparently, to display Fender's new VG Stratocaster guitar was to have Ramirez strip off her clothes and wear it.

"We love women and, of course, we're going to have photos of beautiful women on our pages," a Men's Health communications staffer told FOLIO:.

When asked if featuring a mostly nude woman was a sort of departure for the magazine, the staffer responded, "She wasn't completely nude. She was wearing a pair of heels."

What's your opinion?
