Dolly magazine is going digital having announced the December issue will be it's last paper issue available. In a nutshell: teen magazines helped me navigate those angsty and emotionally fraught teenage years. In my teens, these magazines taught me that you could be feminine and a feminist, wear lip gloss and still ride a surfboard, you absolutely must put-up posters of Brad Pitt, all while listening - loudly - to girl power pioneers, the Spice Girls.
In a nutshell: these magazines helped me navigate those angsty and emotionally fraught teenage years. To be fair, some of these are pretty funny and highlight a bunch of ridiculous feminist and sexual beliefs more on that later.
However, I want to remind you of the value they brought us back then, to celebrate the stories that made us laugh, to highlight the vital information about periods, public hair and pregnancy we all so desperately needed. And, most importantly, reminisce on how they made us feel - connected, understood, they gave us a sense of belonging - in a world where social media didn't exist and MAFS -style shows would not have been allowed on TV.
Firstly, some context: I am talking primarily about Dolly founded , folded December and Girlfriend from the 90s and s. This was a time when the internet was slower than the NBN roll-out and Mark Zuckerberg was doing math equations in primary school. There weren't many places coughing up information on the heavier topics teenagers were struggling to understand be it sex, smelly discharge, STIs or smoking. Or, that feeble attempt by a teacher to pull a condom over a banana was about as insightful as Donald Trump at his own presidential rally.
Many of us did not get the lowdown on puberty and periods from our parents or schools. There was no-one telling us how to buy the best fitting bra or the deadly dangers of eating disorders or the health hazards around smoking and drinking.
The pages within the pretty covers were your bible of sex information because we craved them, we needed them and, quite simply, there was nothing else. These magazines, and Cleo and Cosmopolitan , also gave us nuggets of wisdom about navigating friendships, emotions and wellness whatever it looked like back then.
I probably should come clean right about now. When I messaged a good friend of mine who edited Dolly during that period and now lives in the UK, she made a sensible point that we'd never dish out health, sex or life advice without an expert voice featured throughout the article. Dolly Doctor was always written by a doctor, and at Girlfriend , we tackled stories on teen pregnancy and the like with experts guiding us through.
At a time when we had four TV channels and Blockbuster on every corner, teen magazines were the main source of frivolous entertainment. There were massive entertainment sections which profiled the latest movies, newest CDs walkman anyway? Dolly's neighbourhood hunks. Pic: Getty Source:Whimn. I pulled out one of my old Dolly mags and was horrified to read two coverlines circa Why most girls get pregnant from first-time sex.
Er, really? Boyfriends - get yours now. Um, where? Beneath the Impulse deodorants and pink blush freebies, the airbrushed cover girls with small frames and clear teenage skin helped perpetuate unrealistic versions of teen beauty. All this aside, compare the advice and headlines back then to the unruly world of social media channels teens devour today.
A Gen Z media diet is like a cruise ship smorgasbord - plenty of raw prawns amongst the finer cut meats. As Rachael Krishna recently wrote in The Guardian. Trends such as clean eating, self-care and flat-tummy teas are mutations of the spurious information once available in teen magazines.
I'd rather her tear open a sealed section showing vaginas in all different shapes and sizes, than a quick google search and see one too many resembling a blow-up doll's bits. Mind you, when my daughter is a teenager, magazines will probably be back in fashion then.
