The official site for the AARP — formerly the American Association for Retired Persons — is a robust organization, providing myriad information and services to those who are of retirement age. The organization has a website, obviously, but also a magazine. But in what is perhaps my favorite thing ever, the site recently ran a […]

Some Texans aren’t fans of a new Richard Phillips and Playboy’s installation. The iconic forty-foot Playboy bunny logo that’s accompanied by an all black 1972 Dodge Charger that sits atop a small concrete structure was installed without any of the proper permits. The necessary permits for such an artwork technically fall into the realm of the type required for an […]

After much speculation earlier this month, it has been confirmed that the nearly 40-foot tall Playboy bunny logo spotted mysteriously in the desert of Marfa, Texas is in fact the work of Richard Phillips. While it is quite obvious that Playboy’s new creative team of Neville Wakefield and Landis Smithers commissioned the project in hopes to reinvigorate […]

The early sixties were a pretty sexy time in the US. A decade after Alfred Kinsey conducted his sexuality studies, Americans were enthralled by the steamy affair between JFK and Marilyn Monroe, everyone wanted to get invited to a Playboy Club party, and the Free Love movement was rapidly subverting the prudish “values” of the […]

Look what Playboy just sent us: the “The Playmate as Fine Art” spread from the January/February 2013 issue, freshly out on iPlayboy, featuring — HEY!!! STOP looking at Paz and read! — centerfolds as interpreted by a respectable crop of famous artists. It is incredibly appropriate that Will Cotton, oh merry bringer of the pink cloud pin-up plague, […]

This May’s Playboy cover features The Hole’s Assistant Director May Andersen, a 29-year-old Danish model. Is is “The first and probably the only Playboy cover to include a member of the art world.” What a shame. What a shame indeed that other arty females haven’t had the pleasure of getting nude to vamp for the men’s saucy glossy, but no worries! […]

Well it’s not much of a shocker, but just a day after Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy cover leaked, the whole editorial has dripped right down the media cracks along with it. TMZ claims that Linds is “freaking out” over the unauthorized release, which was actually supposed to be in a week, but she really has nothing to bitch about, she still […]

The Playboy Mansion is reportedly unkempt, reeks of dog piss, and by the latest accounts, a petri dish of infectious human disease. Now that I think about it, a Playboy collaboration with Supreme actually makes perfect sense and for a streetwear brand that isn’t even trying anymore, appropriately fitting. […]

Here’s another titillating stowaway that made it aboard Apollo 12. Playboy’s vintage calendar card was hidden inside the command module without the knowledge of the crew and then discovered, shock, wow. We heard that one before. […]

The feministas over at Jezebel uncovered a treasure trove of Playboy stuff being auctioned at Christie’s, including some decades old issues “marked up by editors and the art department.” The copies offer a revealing look into the world of (early) Photoshop retouching that made editorials like this and later ones featuring Kim Kardashian possible. See […]
