We were really excited when we saw how amazingly fierce Tilda Swinton looked all drag queened-out on the cover of Candy Magazine #4. Little did we know that this juicy little gem was lingering within the pages: "Baby Boom," shot by Steven Klein and styled by Patti Wilson, features bondage-sporting male models making out, playing with guns, collecting dildos, oh... and just, you know, being pregnant.

Candy is a trans-friendly fashion glossy that's used to pushing boundaries--James Franco and Chloe Sevigny have each cross-dressed for the cover (the latter as a convincing Terry Richardson double). But this spread, which is most certainly (we hope?) the first-ever fashion shoot to feature a pregnant male model, definitely ventures into uncharted (and super controversial) territory.

Naturally, we googled model Chris Fawcett to see if he was actually expecting (hey, you never know!), but we couldn't find any evidence. So we've been left with several questions: Is the belly a prosthetic? A post-production digital addition? Are pregnancy harnesses going to be a thing? Is playing with guns whilst pregnant ever advisable? And, will pregnant male models start replacing pregnant female models and celebrities on the cover of magazines?

Click through to see the rest of the very intense and very, very NSFW spread.
