This month is an important milestone in FHM history as we celebrate FHM XV a.k.a. our 15th year of being in the making-you-drool-and-teaching-you-how-to-be-pogi business!
Yes, we've been at it for a decade and a half, and we're glad we've achieved this feat and are still going strong. We're also waxing a bit nostalgic now because, well, 15 years is a pretty long time. Can you remember what you were up to, say, a decade ago? We bet a lot of things have changed!
As for us, well, we answer that with the latest edition of 10 Years Ago In FHM History! So sit back, chill, and read on as we dial back the clock!
Get ready for a feels-filled trip down sexy memory lane!
We kick things off for this nostalgia fest with one of our March 2005 cover girls, Diana Zubiri—and her twin. Double the sizzle factor!
Got you! She really doesn't have a twin, that's the magic of photography at work. Here's more of the FHM legend:
This isn't the first time Ms. Zubiri graced our glossy pages. (Remember the great "Shaw Boulevard Flyover Shoot Of 2002"?) It also ain't the last time and if you've seen our September 2014 issue, you know that she hasn't aged a bit.
The March 2005 issue also marked our fifth birthday. As part of the celebration, we collected romance and guy type quotes from our cover girls (2000-2004).
One of our faves:
Got that, boys?
We take a break from the nostalgic sexiness (don't worry, we'll go back to it in a bit) to tell you that we had a little convo with the undisputed kings of noontime TV then and now, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon. Lucky, yes we were!
Part of the interview had Master Joey saying, "We don't even think we're funny." Sorry, idol, but the whole country begs to differ.
In case you're wondering, may Internet na noong 2005! And one of the biggest sensations back then was, ahem, online strip shows.
We also did a load of crazy stuff back then, which included riding on this giant shoe
...and challenging Ali Peek (of all people!) to arm-wrestling (and painfully losing).
Guys, meet Patricia Gomez, our Girlfriend of the Month for the issue!
Yes, girl, you do have gorgeous eyes!
Time for a few tips courtesy of Asia Agcaoili! That month's lesson: How to give good head.
And the issue's Pun-tastic Ad Award goes to...
Because we want to make sure you have enough dough to please a girl, we helped you out via our very own budget planner.
We also got hold of Kit Barraquias, one of the local fashion industry's "it" girls.
Another product of the "Aging-is-fake" Club: Jay-Jay Helterbrand. Look at him now and you'll see he (almost) didn't age at all (although the former PBA MVP's ballin' skills are not exactly like brand new anymore).
Oh look, old school gizmo goodies! Don't laugh; true geeks will tell you that these are now legit collector's items.
Time for some LOLs, courtesy of the ish's Joke of the Month:
We also taught you how to turn your car into a love ride—literally!
Finally, we end our look back at FHM history with this cringe-inducing True Story:
