How Playboy Can Stay On Top Jul 30

How  Playboy  Can  Stay  On  Top

How many magazines can boast having the most beautiful women in the world, movie icons, TV stars and celebrities strip for pictorials? What about Playboy?

Most of these famous ladies that honored to be part of the Playboy brand. Which elevated their celebrity status, like actress Joan Collins. Remember, who posed for Playboy at age of 50 at the height of her Dynasty fame.

And was the original cougar, making it sexy to be an older woman.

Past and present icons like Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Farah Fawcett. The list is long, also includes Dolly Parton, Bo Derek, Raquel Welch, Kim Basinger, Suzanne Somers.

Also Madonna, Charlize Theron, Mariah Carey, Anna Nicole Smith, Lindsay Lohan, Drew Barrymore, Sharon Stone. And Pamela Anderson and Kim Kardashian have all graced the cover of Playboy, growing their male fan base in every sense of the word.

I must admit then, that I was surprised to hear that Playboy recently decided. It will no longer be showing full nudity in its magazine. Given this new policy, my recommendation to Hugh Hefner and the executives at Playboy. Which is to stay on top is to have pictorials of “Nearly Nude Stars”. Who are comfortable in their own skin, dressed sexy without revealing it all.

I think celebrities who are famous for raising the pulse rates of men like Scarlett Johansson, Cameron Diaz, Halle Berry. Also ‘slightly older’ stars such as Helen Mirren would be popular choices for the new Playboy era.

It would be a shame to see Playboy Magazine subscriptions plummet lower. Than they already have (from five million to less than one million). Because they stop publishing nude photos.

Of course I am slightly biased, as I have appeared in the magazine myself nearly nude! When I had my own show on the Playboy Channel called Pillow Previews.

More recently, I was on Playboy Radio giving sex advice with Dr. John Gray bestselling author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.

Tina Fey joked about her dream to pose for Playboy on Saturday Night Live. But many young women do have strong and positive self-images of themselves. And the ambition to make money, find fame, boost their confidence.

To discover sexual empowerment by modeling for the most tasteful men’s magazines in the world.

Many of these models such as Bettie PageJenny McCarthy, Shannon Tweed, Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra and Kendra Wilkinson. They all became successful household names thanks in part to Playboy.

So I hope that Hugh Hefner at 89 years young will continue to tease and titillate readers with plenty of sensual skin.

And that Playboy’s new look won’t discard the format. But that marked the launch of an empire in 1953 with centerfold Marilyn Monroe.

But evolves into a feast for all of our senses. That fulfills our sexual appetite in the form of beautiful photos. And erotic words that trigger our imagination which empowers us to intensify our desires.
