Badi, stylized as Bʌ́di (バディ), "Buddy" in English, is a monthly Japanese magazine for gay men.
Badi Magazine has 268 pages, including several pages of glossy color and some black and white photographs and drawings of young, fit men in their teens and early twenties (these photographs are censored in accordance with Japan's rules; while they feature explicit depictions of sex, genitals and most pubic hair are obscured).
Badi appeals to a young market (and to admirers of younger men). 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 (hustler bars), brothels, and retail shops.
