    Playboy ending 'Playmate of the Year' title after 50 years

    Playboy centerfold use to be my jerk off material when I was a kid, we had no Youporn or internet. I don't know if hustler is still around...

    Playboy is ending its Playmate of the Year title after 60 years, a representative for the men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine has confirmed.
    Since 1960, the publication, founded by Hugh Hefner, has handed out the award to its favourite Playmate of the Month from the previous year, with Jenny McCarthy, Anna Nicole Smith, and Victoria Silvstedt all receiving the honour.
    However, speaking to the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six, a representative confirmed it will be replaced by Playmates of the Year, which will “celebrate all twelve diverse Playmates of the Month” from the previous year.

    “The point of this change was to not exclude anyone and instead of honouring one Playmate they’re honouring all 12 diverse Playmates of the Year for each of their unique contributions to the brand,” they said.
    “They had an exceptional group of impressive diverse women join the Playboy family as Playmates for 2019. These women are accomplished advocates and admirable personalities in their own right. We wanted to raise the group up as a whole and felt that there was a need to commemorate each of them one more time.”

    They added the change will pave the way for “a more inclusive celebration”, meaning the last-ever Playmate of the Year will be 2019 winner, Jordan Emanuel.

    WTF?!

    Last time I actually looked at a Playboy layout, I noticed much the same thing. (Must have been at least 5 years ago!)

    You would think that they would have gotten more explicit over time. I might actually subscribe if I could see one of those beauties taking it up the ass or being double-teamed. I can see titty for free on Twitter.

    I thought both Playboy and Penthouse (blurry pics) went out of business years ago. Is hustler still around?

    Playboy died when Hef died. Bless his life.....
    If porn's so bad, why are there so many nuns in it?....

    Never understood the appeal. Preferred Hustler and other hardcore brands.


    "...for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. Finding it so much like myself—so like a brother, really—I felt that I had been happy and that I was happy again. For everything to be consummated, for me to feel less alone, I had only to wish that there be a large crowd of spectators the day of my execution and that they greet me with cries of hate."

    Back in the day every boy's introduction to naked women was their dad's Playboy lying around the house. But Playboy tried to market itself very differently than Hustler or even Penthouse. Playboy always tried to have a "serious" edge; they tried to do "real" journalism along with printing pictures of naked girls. A lot of their interviews were of pretty high profile people like Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and Jimmy Carter among others. They also had some pretty high profile women do nude or semi nude photoshoots over the years. Kim Basinger, Drew Barrymore, Suzanne Somers and Katarina Witt were all featured.

    Playboy never wanted to be just a porn mag.

    I actually thought they had either gone out of business or at least gone online only. I can't remember seeing one in a store in a long, long time. I guess you have to subscribe now and have it mailed?

    It's official apparently. Playboy's last print edition is Spring 2020. Here's a New York Times article from a former Playboy model. (I'm relieved that not everything is about COVID-19!)

    I still have paper versions of Playboy. Please let them be collector's items worth $thousands like comic books. My favorite is the one with the future (now current) wife of Jimmy Connors. I think she and Wayne Gretzsky's wife were born only a few miles apart.

    When I lived in Montreal, Playboy was banned in Quebec. Had to go to Plattsburgh NY to get one.

    I remember that issue. Patti McGuire (Connors) was such a doll. This was also the famous Jimmy Carter I've had lust in my heart interview right before the 1976 election. There was also a nude pictorial of fetching Misty Rowe from the Hee Haw TV show. I wished Nurse Goodbody from Hee Haw posed nude..

    What years did Quebec ban Playboy? I've always found Montreal to be more sexually awakened than most of the U.S.

    The quality of models has declined over the years for playboy. I like Met-art and Watch4beauty, their photography and models are top-notch.

    In the later years, Playboy seemed to lean towards more plastic models. Even in the 70s and 80s, I found the Penthouse Pets to be more sexual. I don't know if it was the selection of models, the photography or both.

    What was your opinion of the now defunct Perfect 10 which had all-natural models?

    Some of the photographers from perfect 10 branched out to create their own website. Met-art and Watch4beauty feature natural models with no or limited tattoos.

    I remember way back when the big joke was you bought Playboy for the articles. We all bought it for the photos. But in fact, they did have some good reading. The interview of the month could be especially good. And the cartoons.

    Met-Art tends to have a type - late teens / early 20's and skinny w small tits. I got bored with the same-ness of the models and the photography style.

    I'll check out the other site you mentioned.
