Brains: The Journal of Egghead Sexuality is a queer-guy fetish zine first published in 1990 by D-L Alvarez and Nayland Blake.

Made originally as a parody of gay fetish zines and magazines which were prominent at the time (Bear, Trade, Daddy, Hombres, etc.), Brains editors Nayland Blake and D-L Alvarez decided to create a zine that celebrated their favorite sex organ. The first issue uses Mr. Peabody as a cover model. It featured a nude couple making out in a bookstore, book reviews, a quiz for how to determine if your trick is smart, and personal ads of a particular nerdly flavor.

A second issue was pieced together and then shelved for years, until Graphic designer Carl Williamson decided to revisit Brains in a (re)publishing project hosted by The Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College in 2012.

The zine also inspired a lesbian spin off called I.Q.
