What a year 2000 was. So many new, exciting feelings that stirred inside of us. 

Back before the Internet, young boys were seriously low on options for material when it came to exploring their new-found adult-time feelings. Girls were no longer icky, and instead were very interesting and confusing. So unless you had one of those friends with terrible parents who had access to porno mags, exciting images were few and far between.

But there was always Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue, because they sold that right in the normal magazine section and was basically a sports magazine, right?

So for most men over the age of 18, their first fuzzy tingle times occurred with the beautiful women on the pages of SI. So in honor of SI's latest (and now irrelevant) offering, take a walk down memory lane and find the first issue that made you think grown-up things.
