Luke Chueh Rants - A Divulge Magazine Editorial (May 2013)

In April 2013, Divulge Magazine invited me to contribute a monthly column we call "Luke Chueh Rants - A Divulge Magazine Editorial". As the title implies, this is simply a place where I can talk about whatever is on my mind.
Though I am in no way a professional writer/journalist, many of my friends would agree that I have some interesting ideas (beyond the ones I use for my paintings). And being that my forte is visual communication, I'm also planning on creating original graphic editorials too.
And so, I want to say thank you to Divulge Magazine for offering me a place where I can document these thoughts and share them with their audience. I truly hope that this column will help me expand myself, beyond the world of my paintings.
I'd like to give a shout out to my sister, Kim Chueh,  for helping me edit the copy and for taking the photography.
The May 2013 issue will feature my first official contribution.
This months rant is about men who sit like women.


  1. Ah ha that is awesome! Congrats on branching out with writing. My hubs sits like that... I think maybe his thin legs allow him room for his junk. I see more slender men pull off that seating posture than heavier men. I think that may apply to lady thighs too. It seems legs feel easier to cross when they are less girthy.

    1. Hmmm... interesting. I've spoken to a couple people about this, some of whom actually sit like that, and they believe it has to do with how low their balls dangle. I'm built like a college student, which means my top half is thick, but my legs are skinny, and though I can sit with my legs completely crossed (as you can see in the photo), it's not something I do unconsciously. But thanks for chiming in! I'm going to have to collect as much info as I can and write a follow up.

    2. There are certain strategies to minimize the "ball smash" factor (sack down, shaft up) however as a straight male with average testicular circumference, I find crossing my leg all the way over more suitable because the top leg is allowed to dangle freely by sheer will of gravity as opposed to the more "masculine" leg-cross where I'd be forced to locate and perpetually adjust the most logistical coordinate of my bottom-leg's thigh-flesh wherein I dig my boney ankle in attempt to forge a precarious balance.
