There are a lot of amulet magazines, but magazines devoted to the “sport” of cock fighting are equally popular.
I’ve counted more than a dozen in one shop alone.
“The City of Fighting Cocks” magazine is one of the more interestingly named, but as with all others it proudly
displays a picture of a champion on its August edition cover.

This magazine sells for 50 baht, runs to 96 pages and is well advertised with cocks for sale, stud cocks,
cock-fighting equipment and drugs to make your cock the best.

Editorial is not for the squeamish as there are pictures of cock fights, some of which carry prize purses of
more than 1 million baht. There’s also the “Man With His Favorite Cock” picture feature.
