  Boys get their own mag - at last!
Updated 16 January 2004, 10.56
The new mag is aimed at 11 to 16-year-olds
Buying a magazine can be a tricky job for a girl because there are so many titles to choose from.

But most lads have had a hard time trying to find a mag filled with music, games, films and fashion - until now.

The first issue of Sorted - a monthly, glossy mag aimed at 12 to 16-year-old boys - came out this week.

"Our research has shown that this group is crying out for a magazine which deals with the issues which affect them," said the editor.

The mag claims to cover things in a "factual and no-nonsense manner".

Not cheap

It's not cheap at 2.50, but there are 100 pages to wade through.

However, it seems like it'll be some time before lads' mags catch up with those for girls.

The ladies currently have at least 14 titles to choose from!
