We get lots of stuff in the Instinct office. And this "stuff" runs the gamut of, well, use your imagination. This is a gay men's magazine, after all. But this book and its title really got our attention for its sheer shamlessness. Check it our after the jump.

You may have heard through the gayvine that we’re givers. It’s mostly false. But as far as this week's Swag Suite goes, we're giving big!
When it comes to some of our vay-gay-tions, there usually isn't much going down that we can share with mom in the form of a video uploaded to her Facebook page. However, thanks to our revamped Gay Travel News, the countless possibilities of gay vacay ideas you'll glean as the website blossoms will be worthy of being captured (and shared!) by the incredible Flip camera!
Wanna Flip? Head to to Gay Travel News to enter for a chance to win a gorgeous slim, sleek Flip Camcorder. Good luck!

Well, for starters, Madrid and New York! While our beloved NYC won top honor for the Best Global Destination, Madrid Pride won for Best Annual Gay Pride Destination (and judging by this photo, how could it now?! They even got Kylie to perform this past year!)
The awards given out by Logo's TripOutGayTravel.com were determined by site visitors and travel enthusiasts, with initial nominees selected by writers, editors and travel experts covering the LGBT travel market.
Other notable winners include Los Angele's The Abbey as the returning winner for Best Gay Bar In The World, and Rio's win as the Sexiest Place on Earth (no argument here!).
Check out all the winners below:

Trip Out Gay Travel announced nominations today for its “best of” awards. In the “Best Gay Bar” category, only two US venues received nods, including The Abbey here in SoCal (go team!), and Sidetrack in Chicago. Is it a sign that I’ve done too many U.S.GAY bar tours if I think there are at least a dozen others that should be brushing shoulders on the list of finalists?
Another curiosity of the nominations is LA’s absence from the top six gay travel destinations. Portland, OR even beat out the City of Angels, which I guess I previously thought was as much of a gay magnet as Reichen Lehmkuhl.
