  • Peeking at Playboy

    Sep 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: funny, popular, varied content
    Cons: self-serving and somewhat offensive

    Summary: Playboy is, of course, a magazine written for men. I, of course, am not a man. I can hear the readers crying “Foul!” all the way from here. If the target audience of Playboy is men, how can a woman write a fair, useful review? Does ... read more

  • More nude celebrities, less sticky pages

    Aug 7, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Celebrity layouts, 20Q, Playboy Advisor
    Cons: Formulaic, Girls all look the same, Sticky paper stock.

    Summary: How's that for a tag line? LOL. Seriously though, as a two year subscriber to Playboy, I find that the paper they use has so much static electricity in it that it's hard to peel them apart. What did you think I mean? Anyways, I've decided not to ... read more

  • Turkey Breast Recipe

    Feb 11, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Articles, Beautiful Women
    Cons: Fictional Works are not interesting, Diversity

    Summary: I read Playboy for the articles, and for the wonderful recipes that are in every issue. Hugh Hefner is a genius for creating a magazine, that is so interesting to read. Every month I await for my subscription to arrive, and tear off the black plastic ... read more

  • A Magazine as American as Baseball, Hotdogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet

    Feb 27, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great articles and interviews…
    Cons: Airbrushed Playmates; layouts too short.

    Summary: When I was a teenager growing up on the relatively tame but bigoted streets of Newport, Rhode Island, I had a paper route. On this route there was one particular stop I liked to make the first Friday of every month, for that is when the new Playboy ... read more

  • Is Playboy a Good Magazine? It Depends on your Terms.

    Jan 21, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pictures, words
    Cons: Kind of the same magazine every month, not as good as in its heyday

    Summary: One of the famous cliches of the world is "I read Playboy for the articles." People often repeat that as an example of a white lie, but it's more properly considered a half-truth. People do or do not get this periodical based on its pornographic ... read more

  • Better in the past...

    Mar 23, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The occasional celebrity pictorial, well-written articles (fiction and non-fiction).
    Cons: Silicone and bleached blondes everywhere, airbrushing, lousy paper, trend-following but not trendsetting.

    Summary: PLAYBOY reviewed here? OK... As a 37-year-old (male), I'm now at the age where I can see "how much better" some things were in my younger days than they are now, such as MTV, popular music, the price of gas, and most certainly PLAYBOY. My first ... read more

  • XXXtortion: reading it for the articles

    Jan 13, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good reading, occasional celebrity nude
    Cons: dull pictures, outrageous subscription policy--buy only at newsstand

    Summary: We took Playboy for two years, and it's over now. We enjoyed reading it most of the time, but we've never seen such business practices from a magazine in all our lives. The sample issue used for this review was labeled the 'December 2003' ... read more

  • Playboy - Better to make it on a look than a feel.

    Dec 23, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent articles by top writers. Artsy type photos.
    Cons: I could do without the photos, but guys like them.

    Summary: I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Playboy Magazine. Love to read it. Hate to go in and buy it. Really, that hasn’t presented much of a problem. Though I’ve never made an actual purchase (unless you count buying subscriptions for ... read more

  • The Women of Enron, and a Whole Lot More.....

    Jul 2, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful women and photgraphy, good articles, gimmick issues.
    Cons: Some tastelessness, can get tacky.

    Summary: This morning, on a very rash and impulsive whim, I did a lot more than pick up today’s Globe and Mail at the magazine shop. Well, actually, I suppose it wasn’t a completely impulsive whim that made me purchase this month’s issue of Playboy; the issue ... read more

  • You can't go home again, I guess

    May 15, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: At first glance, seems like the old Playboy
    Cons: The magazine's detractors seem more justified than ever

    Summary: I really do read Playboy just for the articles these days--mainly because the centerfold models seem more inaccessable with each passing year. Having grown old with Playboy, so to speak, I'm reminded of the twenty-something character in ... read more

  • Playboy,a great gift for any boy, or girl, or man, or woman

    Jan 15, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Healty for men women, kids of all ages
    Cons: None

    Summary: PLaboy what a magazine. Altough Pornography is not known as the cleanist thing in the world, and classiest thing in the world. And Playboy is known to be Porn, but... it's not dirty, or raunchy, or kinky, it's natural. What separates Playboy from the ... read more

  • Barely Blue

    Cons: Tasteful spreads, caters to elitists, fashion editors have no sense of fashion, liberal slant

    Summary: Since its debut in the 1950's, Playboy has been internationally recognized as the quintessential men’s magazine. The publication has changed little in 45 years, save that Playboy shed its staples a little more than a decade ago, and the centerfolds have ... read more

    Cons: same content and format from issue to issue

    Summary: Is Playboy a magazine it used to be? I’ve met with Hugh Hefner, a founder of Playboy magazine and asked him a few questions. BustyBabe: Mr. Hefner, do you think Playboy is still a magazine it used to be: a magazine designed for young men, a flagship ... read more

    Pros: Good-looking girls,entertaining articles, and good tips on sexual encounters
    Cons: Not enough pictures of booty and that's the only con

    Summary: Playboy is a very respected men's entertainment magazine. Playboy is similar to all other pornographic magazines in one sense...it reveals nude women, but in another sense it is completely different from the others in that it provides the reader with ... read more

  • The Death of the American Dream

    Jul 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Occasional controversial article/interview, naked women
    Cons: Fake tits, women who look the same, pictures of Fred Durst

    Summary: I was looking through a random issue of Playboy magazine at a friends house one day. The subscription tab falls into my lap. $10-$20 for a year subscription sounds like a good deal. I'm thinking there are beautiful women and articles about the issues ... read more

  • Time to upgrade from Playboy to Playman

    Jun 29, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unattainable women in the nude, hidden bunny on every cover, Funny cartoons
    Cons: Reviews seem outdated, Mansion parties have the same people, Articles going down hill

    Summary: Is it me or has Playboy been heading down hill? If I see Mini-me at one more mansion party I'm going to scream. Since when did all the playmates look so mature, but still be 18? I have been an avid subscriber since I wasn't supposed to be, but lately ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: stories are interesting, great magazine
    Cons: none at all...

    Summary: Ever since I was about 10, I can remember my oldest brother Chuck getting a Playboy magazine every month. Honestly he had stacks of them next to his bed that he used for a nightstand. (haha) I think that goes on more often than not. But ... read more

  • DO YOU READ PLAYBOY?

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Informative, Quality photos
    Cons: May not conform to your lifestyle

    Summary: When is the last time you have picked up a Playboy magazine? After all, it is one of the most popular magazines ever. Perhaps you think Playboy is perverted and should be banned from stores, but it really isn't all that bad. Not only that, but it can be ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The girls are hot, good stories, and nice details.
    Cons: Sometimes it seems they airbrush the models to much.

    Summary: This is perhaps one of the best magazines I've ever read. Covering everything from pictures to stories. This supplies the reader with pictures of hot girls. Also, with the stories it sometimes makes the readers look at it really. With all that said I've ... read more

  • The magazine is much more than just Classy porn. (Updated 6/1/01)

    May 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Even women can enjoy this magazine.
    Cons: It's lost a little of its class in the last few years.

    Summary: This magazine used to be very well respected, even by those who hated the fact that it had pictures of naked women. (I've always suspected that the women who hate the fact that Playboy has naked pictures of women are really more upset at the magazine ... read more
