Every week, we send someone stumbling into the dark Maxim archives to see what we were up to way back when. This week we're going back to January of 2006, when Haylie Duff was on 7th Heaven, we made amateur sex toys, and our game day memorabilia wasn't up to par.
Cover Girl: Haylie Duff
Where You've Seen Her: Hilary Duff's smokin' hot older sister gained fame playing a pregnant teenager on the popular '90s drama 7th Heaven, alongside Mackenzie Rosman and Jessica Biel. But before seeking help from the Camdens and their Xanax-induced dog Happy, Haylie was roughing it post-heiress style in Material Girls and running for class president in Napoleon Dynamite. We're still donning our "Vote for Summer" shirt, fuck Pedro.
Where She Is Now: At 28-years-old, this Southern beauty is on the market and has turned her professional focus to the big screen. With multiple film projects currently in the works and various upcoming Christmas specials (Santa, YAY!), it doesn't look like this Duff will be leaving us anytime soon. Thank God.
How To Make Your Own Sex Toys
Here at Maxim, we're licensed sexperts, particularly in the realm of really bizarre sex toys. Not only are we up on the most terrifying gadgets ever sold at Pleasure Island, but we've also mastered the art of the Fifi, a feat most men can only dream of conquering. But back in '06 we were less sexperienced, which is why we thought it'd be a good idea to encourage readers to stuff their condoms with tissues during sexy time. Sorry bro, that's a condom, not an 8th grade girl's bra. We sincerely apologize if you've been waiting seven years to get laid.
Six Days to Sunday
After a long, strenuous work week, there's really only one thing to live for, and that's the weekend. And that's especially true during Football season. When Sundays consist of nothing but vegging out, downing beers, and screaming at your team's quarterback for fucking up a play, you really appreciate that day of rest. So it's no surprise that we dedicated an entire spread to the season's best football gadgets. But while we were totally entranced by those high-tech binoculars and satellite box, we've moved on to bigger and better things, like the Bulleit Woody Tailgate Trailer. Now that's the shit.
