GQ.com Publisher Calls Sexy Glee Pix "The Gift That Keeps On Giving" After Site Traffic Spikes

GQ's racy photo spread featuring the rising stars of FOX's hit show Glee racked up more than 33 million pageviews on GQ.com in its first week. The spread was so successful, GQ.com announced today that they will post behind-the-scenes video of the steamy shoot which had originally been saved for its iPad edition.

“It’s going to be the gift that keeps on giving,” exclaimed VP publisher Peter King Hunsinger.

Scantily clad 24-year-old Glee actresses Lea Michele and Dianna Agron posed for the controversial spread alongside fully-clothed male costar, Cory Monteith. While all of the stars are of legal age, the fact that they portray racy high school students raised more than a few eyebrows.

After the Parents Television Council called the photo spread "disturbing" and that it "borders on pedophilia", Agron apologized via twitter saying:

    "If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?"

A recent X17online poll shows 48% of our readers disagree with the criticism, 35% think the shoot was scandalous, while 15% feel GQ will gain mega press either way!

Controversy aside, we love looking at all the sexy shots!
