Esquire Philippines June 2012This month, Esquire Philippines releases The State of Man issue that shows men in transition, at odds, in crisis, and carrying on despite it all. The issue trains the spotlight to three men: President Noynoy Aquino III, the late Angelo Castro, Jr., and man on the cover John Lloyd Cruz.

As RP President Noynoy Aquino III is bound to give his third State of the Nation Address this month, the State of Man issue features an interesting article written by Lourd de Veyra that suggests to the most powerful man in the country exactly what he should tell his countrymen when he delivers his address to the nation. Esquire also pays tribute to the late veteran news anchor Angelo Castro Jr., who represented for many an era of media broadcasting that is fast disappearing, if not wholly gone.

One of the country’s most popular actors of his generation and most bankable stars today, John Lloyd Cruz, headlines this month’s issue as he has come to embrace the perks and pitfalls of success. “I’m happy where I am, with what I’ve accomplished, with my contribution to the industry,” he shares in the interview. Find out how he has grown into a man of many talents and interests in the industry that he joined when he was so young.

The State of Man Issue also highlights how an Esquire Man can be capable of maximizing his manhood. Featuring articles related to sex and other matters such as why women are not as good as they think, an ode to old school porn, and why women cheat, Esquire also gives you the Esquire Manual on the Art of Seduction, the James Bond-style romantic getaways, the Art of Touch and Body Language, and more.
Also in the May issue of Esquire are Sam Pinto for the Woman We Love feature, actresses Aryn Cristobal and Chal del Rosario from SPIT (Silly People’s Improv Theater), Bea Tantoco and her list of Ten Things You Don’t Know About Women, and an Esquire Man’s Guide to Buying Denim and Suits.

The June issue of Esquire Philippines is available in newsstands and bookstores nationwide for P195. All iPad users also get a chance to have a copy of the State of Man Issue’s alternate cover.
