With the Domestic Violence problem we have in this country I think it was irresponsible to even hint at choking. What do you think?

The cover does did not strike me as representing choking. I think it's because of the expressions on the models' faces and the fact that I would expect the female model to lower her right arm to fend off an attacker. It looks like a caress to me, not an assault.

I agree. I'm pretty conscientious when it comes to issues like domestic abuse, and even I think this is being overblown.

People just want to be offended. I love my country and hate its people sometimes.

Yep, so many people who have turned into hypersensitive ninnies who are highly offended by such things as looks on faces of customer service workers, perceived "tones" in the voice, not getting immediate responses in texts or Facebook posts, and that the store ran out of their brat's favorite pudding, and the 16 year old shelf stock clerk "Just didn't seem to CARE!" I'm not the least bit surprised there are people seeing something that is not in that picture and getting all upset over it.

Wow. Obviously, the people complaining have never had sex. Or at least good sex.

Which is pretty sad.... she's not being choked -- he's nibbling on her neck while he strokes her throat.

It made me think of 50 Shades of Grey.

Not the Vogue cover....
Must be a boring issue to drum up the PR

I thought it was erotic, not violent.
