Killing Me Softly with His Schlong

Pros Lots of pictures, not too many advertisements or fluff
Cons What's up with the soft men? What's up with the ugly men?
Recommended it? No
A quick glance at the cover of Playgirl Magazine and you will see a small caption that states ?Entertainment for women?. Yeah, right. While us gals don?t really need eye-candy to get ourselves hot, it still is nice to look at some naked men once in a while. However, Playgirl is such a joke when it comes to turning me on and I believe this magazine caters more to gay men than it does to straight women. But then again, doesn?t ALL porn cater to men anyways?

Exhibit A

Size DOES matter. However, Playgirl would have you men believing that it doesn?t if you happen to glance at a few of its pages. While Playgirl boasts a BIG issue (see Feb. 2000 issue) with larger than possible men featured in it, a brief perusal of other issues and one will see some rather mediocre-sized men on display. Does size matter to the average homosexual male? I don?t know the answer to this, but to us women IT DOES. If we?re going to buy a magazine with naked men in it, they should at least have decent sized equipment. Why am I spending $3.99 for it if all I?m gettin? is mediocrity?

Exhibit B

Okay, while I?m on this topic of mediocrity ? what the heck is up with Playgirl?s choice of men for the photo spreads? In Playboy Magazine, which I look at frequently since my friend has a subscription, the girls are beautiful (in a trampy kind of way) and made up nicely. Not so for Playgirl - the men are usually not very good looking at ALL and some of them look like they refused the magazine?s offering of a makeup/primp person. Some of these men showing us everything are men who shouldn?t be showing us much. I?ve seen centerfolds of men with hair all over their happy place. Just like women shouldn?t have a jungle down there, men should not either ? it?s just gross. I?ve also seen photo spreads of men with soft equipment ? what is the purpose of this? Is this the photographer?s ?artistic? decision, or is this the model?s decision? Whoever?s decision it is, they obviously don?t know what a woman wants.

Exhibit C

Playgirl is about half the size of Playboy. But I think I would definitely say that the latter has a lot more fluff in it. While Playgirl doesn?t have as many recurring monthly features or filler as its sister magazine, it definitely has a lot more smaller pictures of nakedness on it. Just about every page has a couple of schlongs featured. At least THIS is good. Also, I have noticed that just about every issue I?ve seen of Playgirl has photo spreads of sexual encounters between men and women. This is sexy, and something I don?t think I?ve seen in Playboy. Seeing a man and a woman ready to do it on the office desk in a series of photos is way more appealing than just seeing some guy holding onto his equipment and smiling for the camera.

Exhibit D

Playgirl is such a tease. They put stuff on their cover that says ?Nude Movie Stars!? and then feature a whole gaggle of hot male stars (i.e. David Duchovny) which entices us gals to buy the magazine. The magazine is sold at stores with a plastic bag sealing it up, so you can?t peruse it to see if it?s worth buying. Well, you?ll fork over your $3.99+ tax and rip open the plastic, just excited and anxious to see David?s sexy manhood?.and then find out it?s just a picture of his ass from a movie he did in 1991. What a bummer. It?s things like this that destroy any credibility that Playgirl may have for being one of the ?classiest? magazines for adult entertainment.

Concluding

While Playgirl isn?t going to be for everyone, I think there may be a small majority of women out there who live for this magazine. Maybe it?s because they aren?t gettin? any at home, or the sight of their man naked just isn?t doing much for them. I don?t know. They still keep making this magazine, so somebody must be subscribing to it. The latest ?Cowboy Issue? that I saw in the store this weekend would have me believing that gay men are keeping this magazine in circulation. There?s no doubt that porno magazines, even if they feature men, are geared towards men. If you don?t believe me, then go to any adult store that carries porn magazines and you?ll see a 20 foot section of men?s magazines catering to fat fetishes, big breast fetishes, Asian women fetishes ? you name it, and they?ve got it. And then you?ll notice that all the magazines featuring men are in a separate section ? usually the gay section. I?m not lying.

So, in conclusion - Playgirl ain?t that great of a magazine; definitely not worth its cover price. But issues like the ?Big Issue? are worth shelling out a few dollars for to see how massive a man can be.
