In the latest edition of its "Sex Advice From" feature, Nerve talks to Hollister employees. The article includes some truly standout quotes, like this one from Derek, 28, on the subject of whether he feels like a piece of meat:
Women have been taking advantage of that for more than 2,000 years—now it's our turn. Women can vote and own property; it's my turn to be a piece of meat. I want to be objectified and given stuff for free.We also get some poignant insight into the lives of men who make a living being really ridiculously good-looking—all three interviews include a discussion of unwanted groping, which is sort of depressing. At least they're getting paid well: Brandon, 25, tells Nerve that last year he made $56,000.
