    I was wondering and it has been bugging me for the past few years. How old do you have to be to purchase Playboy? It's been bugging me now for years.

    unfortunately, the old joke about reading Playboy "for the articles" is more real than joke. I find it very unstrokeworthy.

    Actually, that is new info to me also; the only Playboy I have ever owned was one that came to my apartment because the prior tenant forgot to cancel. The photochopping/airbrushing I think put me off for life I think.

    Yes, but some of the articles are very good - or used to be; most of what I've read of the mag are actually from a stack of sixties' ones I bought at a flea market. I used to keep them in the loo at first, but then promoted them to the bookshelf. Then made the error of throwing them away when moving house.

    "Bunnies of yesteryear; Where are they now?" would make interesting reading.

    Classical Playboy joke:

    Mother finds her son reading a german Playboy.

    "What are you doing there?"

    Son: "I'm reading it for the articles."


    Just a little variation of the one above.

    Oh, any yes, the articles are very good from time to time.

    You might be able to get it younger if you ask really nicely and explain that two clothing websites you frequent in a completely heterosexual manner are being highlighted in the style section [​IMG]
