MANILA, Philippines – The heat is on in the glossy magazine industry and men’s magazine Rogue raised temperatures even further when it teased its readers with a sexier photo of actress-host Megan Young, who graces the cover of its March issue.

The new photo, also taken by photographer Marc Nicdao, showed Young in a black two-piece bikini.

On Wednesday, Rogue showed the cover of its March issue, which is devoted to travel.

Young’s pictorial was held in the island resort of Balesin. The styling was done by LA Consing Lopez, with makeup by Carmi David and hair by Brent Sales.

“Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my cover! All thanks to the Rogue team and Marc Nicdao,” Young said on her Twitter account.

“Thank you mama for my hips that don’t lie,” she added.

When Rogue showed the cover on its Facebook page on Wednesday, Young became a hot trending topic on Twitter, despite the ongoing impeachment trial and the release of the 2011 Bar exams.

Nicdao said the new bikini photo should erase speculations that the pictures were altered

“You know how people are… They accuse and point fingers to Photoshop even if you worked hard for that body,” he told Young on Twitter.

The Rogue cover definitely won Young new admirers.

“Now following [Megan Young]. Was caught off guard when I saw your Rogue magazine cover and immediately followed you on Twitter. Gujab!” said Jurrie Bernardino.
