Who Reads Playboy?
Provocative and informative, Playboy is America’s best-selling men’s magazine. Playboy is read by more than 10.3 million people in the U.S. – of which two million are women. The magazine is primarily aimed at men in their twenties and thirties, but is read by men and women of all ages.

What You Can Expect in Each Issue:
Whatever goes on between a man’s ears is a convenient way to sum up the content of Playboy. Prominent among its features are the pictorials, which showcase women ranging from the girl next door to world-famous celebrities, but also includes sports, entertainment, politics, social trends, developments in the areas of sex and romance, short fiction and compelling articles on behalf of a wide variety of subjects.

  • Pictorials: Featuring the world’s most beautiful women, as captured by some of the world’s most talented photographers.
  • ManTrack: New cars, sporting equipment, technology, furniture, travel destinations and other consumer goods.
  • After Hours: A bemused tour d’horizon of current culture.
  • Forum: Opinion and argument about political and social developments, often focusing on issues of personal freedom and expression.
  • The Playboy Advisor: A column in which readers’ questions about modern living, including love, sex, fashion, technology, etiquette and other topics are answered.

Each month, Playboy magazine offers the most engaging and ecletic mix of material in the general interest and men’s categories. The Playboy Interview, a monthly in-depth conversation with an important figure—recent subjects include Jack Nicholson, Michael Brown, Steve Nash, Mark Cuban, Tina Fey, Kanye West, Jay Z, Matt Groening, Gov. Bill Richardson, Arianna Huffington, Bill O’Reilly, Farheed Zakaria and Thomas L. Friedman—is the most authoritative body of interview-format work in the history of American journalism. A shorter, lighter interview called 20Q (recent subjects include Danica Patrick, Steve Carell, Charles Barkley, Jack Black, Fergie, Paul Rudd and Rachel Bilson) allows readers another chance for readers to hear about a celebrity in the person’s own words.

Playboy delivers news-making and substantive journalism like "Death and Dishonor," the story of the brutal home-front murder of an Iraq War veteran that was the basis for the movie "In the Valley of Elah," "Gunning for the Big Guy," an exclusive look into the story of BALCO and the illegal use of steroids in baseball, and “The Strange Redemption of James Keene,” about a convicted drug dealer turned federal informant who infiltrates a prison for the criminally insane to befriend a serial killer—and which is also being made into a feature film. Other recent articles include a joint profile of comedians Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman, an intimate look at troubled NFL star Ricky Williams, photo-driven profiles of actors such as Justin Long, Ray Stevenson and the cast of “Mad Men,” a feature about Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange, a profile of LAPD chief Bill Bratton, an expose of sexual repression in fundamentalist Iran, several essays about maintaining privacy in an era of dizzying technological and legal change, and a series of definitive articles on male sexual health.

Each issue also includes a piece of fiction, spotlighting the best of established and emerging talents. In 2008, for instance, Denis Johnson wrote a novel exclusively for serialization in the magazine called “Nobody Move,” the follow-up to his National Book Award winning “Tree of Smoke”; it will be published in 2009 by Farrar, Straus & Giroux.

Amazon.com Review
Starting with a cover and a tasteful nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe in its inaugural 1953 issue, Playboy magazine has consistently delivered men what they want most in a magazine: photographs of beautiful women wearing as little as possible. This venerable publication has long been known for its frequent celebrity centerfolds, adult humor, and a surprising number of outstanding fiction writers and columnists.

Playboy magazine is a celebration of the male world. You'll find beautiful women, dressed and undressed, throughout the book, along with the famous centerfold, a fold-out full-body naked celebration of the Playmate of the Month model. Even the photographers of these lovely ladies are often people of fame and notoriety, like Annie Liebovitz and Bunny Yeager, the original Betty Page photographer.

Playboy has also long been known for its outstanding monthly interviews with people like Jack Nicholson, President Jimmy Carter, and Martin Luther King. It's also known for its discovery of dozens of talented writers. Alex Haley, for instance, once served as a Playboy interviewer, and some of Steven King's earliest works graced pages only a few flips away from the centerfold.

Playboy magazine serves as a cultural guide for men as well. Fashion, food, vacation spots, and the best in spirits and smokes are all discussed in columns and features every month. You'll also find great and often irreverent guides to movies and entertainment. Playboy magazine is a fun exploration of everything that makes up a man's world, and a subscription will ensure you never miss an issue.
