NOW YOU REALLY WILL HAVE TO READ IT FOR THE ARTICLES …

The magazine that led the sexual revolution – bringing female nudity into the mainstream – will no longer show pictures of naked women.

Playboy, the publication which ushered millions of American men into adulthood, will move to a new format next March in which full nudity will no longer be featured.  According to The New York Times, the radical reorientation has been approved by the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Hugh Hefner – who launched Playboy back in 1953.

Sexual liberation has not only been accomplished, its leaders note, but has now raced well past the boundaries staked out by Playboy decades ago.

“That battle has been fought and won,” Scott Flanders, the company’s chief executive, told The Times. “You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.”

That’s true …

So now everyone who said they “only read Playboy for the articles” will, at long last, be telling the truth.  Or at least the 800,000 people who still subscribe to Playboy (down from 5.6 million at its peak in the mid-1970s).

I use to have Vanessa Williams and Rita Jenrette. Don’t know where they went. I feel guilty about Vanessa’s because they were used without her permission.

Damn! Is nothing sacred, anymore? Yeah, Hustler snd others bested Playboy’s ass by showing “pink” back in the 70’s, as well as having much better jokes and cartoons, but c’mon, why break from a long and proud tradition? Is this some form of kowtowing to political correctness?

I kind of hope this move sends them into the dustbin of history if they don’t wake up and see the folly of their ways.

Worked with a young kid who bragged about sex with his wife all night, every night. Spent most of his day gluing magazines in the bathroom. I told the other guys there was no way in Hell that he was getting any because I’ve really had situations like that, and it hurt to hold it to pee let alone spank it all day. Plus the word wife was the first clue he was lying. A gold band on a finger is a sure cure for nymphomania.

Susan? Seriously? Do you really think this the way to get back at me for dumping you after we went to the Republican National Convention all those decades ago?

I’m sure you remember all the fun we had in the hotel room. Both of us were insatiable and I know you remember we had to take about 5 showers a day to get the stank off of us.

I know you jumped ship and joined up with the liberal Democrats, but this kind of weak and weaselly dig is just too sad.

But forget all that. I’m willing to if you are, because I have a better idea.

Let’s hook up this weekend and relive old times. I’ll show you what an old white man can still do and it doesn’t involve medicinal aids. Bring your favorite lube, sister; we’ll heat things up while never mentioning partisan politics.

Yes, come twist and shout at my podium. You’ll forget all this negativity real quick.

The Playboy brand is about to take a major hit, with one lawsuit against Bill Cosby already in the deposition stage, alleging sexual assault at the Playboy mansion against an underaged girl that Cosby allegedly doped up and had his way with. There is another one that looks like it will go to trial as well. Both are civil trials at this stage, but with the first one, there is a good chance that criminal charges will be filed as well.

Lawyers for some of these women have said that there are many others who were either assaulted at the Playboy mansion, or at other locations in LA, due to Cosby’s association with Playboy and Hugh Hefner. So this issue of how much Hef knew about Cos’ evil ways, and when he knew it, will be much discussed in court and in the media.

It wouldn’t be surprising at all if this new move to “clean up their act” had something to do with all that.

Getting raped at the Playboy Mansion; Who would ever suspect it?

Reply
Depop Chokrah October 14, 2015 at 2:24 am

I thought all the sex there at the Mansion was consensual. I can’t say I dreamed about it as a lad, but maybe I daydreamed about it.

Wait, you say she claims she was 15? Harumph.

What was a 15 year old doing there, anyway?

The Buzzman October 14, 2015 at 8:53 am

That’s not the point. That’s never the point. Someone being foolish and reckless, at that age, does not make them any more deserving of being drugged and raped.

Even if she were the “loosest” girl in school, or actually out turning tricks — which I’m certain was not the case — if she had been in it for consensual sex, the “consensual” part ended precisely at the point where she was given a dose of ‘ludes that rendered her helpless.

I’ve read a lot of stuff from idiot Cosby apologists/defenders who say ‘ludes did not do that to people, and they cite their own experience to “prove it.” Means absolutely nothing. They are speaking of their own tolerance for downers.

I, myself, cannot tolerate them well at all. I ‘lude would put me way out of it. Two could render me, basically unconscious.

Cosby is a serial rapist, and no amount of “slut-shaming” or trying to justify any of her actions is going to change that one bit.

I used to be a fan, but now I pray that the evil old creep will serve out his final years in jail.

You’ve got a point there.
Got my 25th,30th,40th. & 50th sealed/unopened issues in my fireproof safe!!!!
I did subscribe from around 1980 to 1990 and no shit both my wife & I read them!!!
I distinctly remember getting hooked on a 3 part series novel back in 1979 – that’s what got me to subscribe.
Now all the girls are young enough to be my granddaughters. – haven’t bought one in over 5 years.
Might reconsider since I actually did read them…
But I do remember lusting over Marlyn Cole (Playmate of the year – 1972); Debra Jo Frondon 1977 – hair down to her ankles) and Barbie Benton….

Erskine Caldwell did a series around that time frame.
Centered around his being a young adult during the building of the” Bomb Plant” outside of Augusta, Georgia in the early 50’s.
He would give directions from the Hiway 1 bridge to all the different gambling and whore houses throughout the CSRA. Never would call the name of the owners.
I would take the issues to work and the old journeyman that were young men during the “bomb plant boom” would tell us the rest of the story.
I wrote the details of each ‘joint’ in the margins.
This has my attention, need to go pull the issues out.

I think a good way to go would be to bring back the big hairy pussies. Nobody else is doing that. You gotta google “big hairy pussies” or “Bettie Pake Naked” to see that now. There has to be a niche market for that.

As a “child of the seventies”, I have no problems with big hairy beavers. Something seems amiss with modern chicks and their clean shaven playgrounds.

That said, hairy pits and hairy legs are still and always have been a turn-off for me.

I don’t know about ALL the people in Horry County, but a hell of a lot of them know I’m straight as six o’clock, sexually. You can pull up all the clearly satirical stuff I did and wrote to promote my burlesque shows, and that photo of Miss Fever Blister (ALL woman, and sure as hell not me) all you want — but everyone who knows me at all knows the claim that I’m gay, or even a cross-dresser, is pure bullshit.

They also know that, by my very nature, if I really WERE gay, I would not shut up about it. I wouldn’t hide it. Why should I? I’d proclaim it from the rooftops, and raise hell constantly for gay rights. Also, if I were a cross-dresser for sure, gay or straight, I’d flood social media with pix of me in drag. Because when I’ve done it a couple of times for a joke and/or for publicity for a show, I have made one damned fine looking woman. lol

(Probably what bothers you, that last part. Knowing you can’t touch this.)

Two guys sat down for lunch in the office cafeteria. “Hey, what ever happened to Pete in payroll?” one asked.

He got this harebrained notion he was going to build a new kind of car,” his co-worker replied.

“How was he going to do it?”

“He took an engine from a Pontiac, tires from a Chevy, seats from a Lincoln, hubcaps from a Caddy, and well, you get the idea.”

“So what did he end up with?”

“Eight to ten years.”

After a day of grueling maneuvers under the blazing Texas sun, the platoon stood in formation in front of the barracks. “All right, ladies, think about this,” bellowed the drill instructor. “If you could have ten minutes alone, right now, with anyone in the world, who would it be?”

Amid much mumbling, one voice was heard from the back row, “My recruiter.”

While testing a newly installed computer, an Army officer asked the machine to predict the probability of a World War Three and promptly received a one-word answer: “Yes.”

Annoyed at the lack of detail, the officer barked, “Yes – What?”

Instantly the machine replied, “Yes, Sir!”

An office manager walked into a tavern after work and realized it was a gay bar. What the heck, he figured, I really want a drink.

The waiter walked over. “What’s the name of your penis?” he asked.

“Look,” the guy said, “I’m not into that. All I want is a drink.”

“I’m sorry, but I really can’t serve you until you give me the name of your penis.”

“Ok, ok,” the customer reluctantly agreed. “But tell me the name of your penis first.”

“Nike,” he responded. “You know, like, ‘Just Do It’”

The customer thought for a moment. “The name of mine,” he said, “is Secret.”

“Secret?”

“Yeah, like ‘Strong enough for a man but made for a woman.’”
