This might somehow be both the sexiest and the least sexy issue of Jersey Devil Press ever. I mean, on the one hand, we have a mermaid porn star and a dental assistant hot for bald men with cavities.

This month’s issue of Jersey Devil Press is all kinds of milestone-ish. Not only is it the first issue of 2014, it’s also the 50th issue. Fifty!
