    Hef will be dragged the rest of the way out of the closet after his death and whatever is still left of the "Playboy mystique" will be gone and they will be COMPLETELY irrelevant.....

    If Hef had died 20 years ago, the Playboy brand could've been big.

    But you have an old guy stuck in his ways, obsessed with bleached-blonde bimbos, while the rest of the world diversified and evolved.

    It was the bunny who found and talked Hef into buying the Playboy mansion(west).;)

    Ava Fabian, Miss August 1986. Knew her since we were little kids. She has the best fake cans ever. Regretfully, never saw them in the flesh

    Has become? That may be about a decade behind.

    And Dorothy Stratten was the best.

    The internet killed the entire magazine industry.

    Why would I pay $4.95 to see some washed-up celebrity 7 in a merkin when I can see hot Japanese girls jamming octopuses in their pusses for free.

    I believe that's the basis of Keynesian economics.

    Those old skin mags are struggling to find a workable identity. I recently saw the March issue of Penthouse, which I hadn't seen since back when they went extra raunchy. Now it's mostly reviews of movies, TV and games, it's like Entertainment Weekly with a few nude pictorials thrown in between the articles.

    Old Playboys (60s/70s) are cool though, as like a tits 'n bush historical museum of sorts.

    I always loved her... can't count how many times I wanked to her nudity scene in that skiing movie she was in when I was a teenager (ski school?)

    Playboy's decline has nothing to do with Hef really, it's the decline of the magazine industry in general. If Playboy was the hippest, edgiest magazine out there it still wouldn't sell because we can get everything for free on the internet.
