No safe space for the wicked

Not even Playboy can escape the ravages of the SJW.
Playboy has hired a team of millennials to transform it into a socially conscious publication as it struggles to find its voice in the modern era. It relaunched earlier this year as an ad-free quarterly under the editorial leadership of a gay man and two women who are all under the age of 32.
On the plus side, this is going to make Zoe Quinn's forays into games and comics look like mega-successes by comparison. Lest you think I exaggerate, feast your eyes on one of Playboy's new models.

Woke is the new hot!

All you need is a decent product, decent price and a commitment to stay away from progressive thinking and you can make a good living.

"Playboy has hired a team of millennials to transform it into a socially conscious publication"

That is all I needed. I am not going to click on the link and see yet another ugly nig. The reaction of others here is warning enough. The long history of Playboy magazine may be a metaphor for the modern culture of the USA.

The older generation had its awful hippies and the younger one has its "woke" ass idiots.

I recently saw that the people of the eastern mountains in small towns are still pretty much "normal" and Christian. But for how long?

Blogger Mr.MantraMan August 03, 2019 6:54 AM  

That I find it still in business a surprise. I was a long time subscriber and kept the subscription the last few years only to collect the last issue and the first issue of the cluster it was to become. It truly was awful but I can say I never paid full retail they practically had to give it away the last few years.

As radio host Mancow said of it, it was high end prostitution, basically selling white girls off like a going out of business sale for a civilization.

Well to be fair the linked picture isn't a model, it's some random dindu who's the spokesperson of #metoo, you know the movement founded by Hollywood talent agents to deflect attention from tribal pedos.

The magazine is packed full of troons though. Reading the DM article it seems that's their new direction, ditch the big tits for flat chested heroin addicts and trannies.

Here's a pic of all of them. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/02/business/woke-playboy-millennials.html

"Ben Kohn, a financier who had helped take Playboy private in 2011 and is now chief executive,
..
While the magazine withered, certain aspects of the Playboy brand remained viable business lines. Mr. Kohn, the chief executive, refers to it as the “world of Playboy”: branded spirits, furniture and perfume, fashion collaborations, a casino in London, pop-up events, a recently reopened nightclub in New York and more — especially in China. There, the brand has more than 3,000 stores selling suits, leather goods, luggage and outdoor clothing, Mr. Kohn said.

Playboy no longer publishes its financial results, but Mr. Kohn said consumers spend some $3 billion on the company's products and services each year. Relaunching the magazine, he said, made sense as a kind of "brand extension."



And look! There's something for EVERYone! {gag} How inclusivating!

"The summer issue, out now, features an interview with Tarana Burke, the activist who founded the MeToo movement, conducted by Dream Hampton, whose documentary about R. Kelly led to multiple charges against the singer. There is a queer cartoon and a feature on gender-neutral sex toys. The fall issue will feature a photo essay by the artist Marilyn Minter celebrating female pubic hair.

“We have red hair, blond hair, black hair — it’s basically every color of the rainbow,” Liz Suman, 35, the magazine’s arts editor, told me. She added that elsewhere in the publication, “I’ve been sneaking in some penises, too.”

Okay. That's some award winning journalism there.

Proof positive they are trying to appeal to the lowest dregs as possible. That is nothing like the higher class Playboy aspired to back in the day.

Yes, "I read the articles" is a long running joke, but there was, once upon a time, really good interviews and social commentary. Pictures of nekkid women (**) and dirty joke cartoons were interspersed with real "lifestyle" stuff....for men.

(**) And those pictures, on the scale of nekkid chick pics, were on the higher classy scale as well. There were rules about what Playboy would show and they clearly distinguished themselves from pure "smut" rags like Hustler.

Just another cultural attack. As someone pointed out with the Star Wars / Disney thing, Playboy is, like it or not, part of our shared language at this point. If they destroy that, and they already have, that is one more feather in their cap.

OT but Epstein's trial has been set for mid-2020. So what should we expect in the interim and what has Cerno been doing since the story broke? I think we will be seeing a slow drip of info about the case which can be good for our side, and demoralize the pedophilia left.

This Playboy news is signaling the end of the old guard (Hefner, Maher, Epstein et al) and the introduction of the new gatekeepers - nepotism beneficiaries who have a certain middle eastern stench about them. The key battle ahead will be the BDS/AIPAC narrative dominance and the need to place it waaaay down on our priority list.

Porn industry kills itself. And this particular publication was the gateway drug of degeneracy for late silents and boomers. Now a joke.
What's the problem here?

Blogger Damelon Brinn August 03, 2019 8:42 AM  

I have no idea what the thinking is behind this.

The woke Millennial has no appreciation for the role Playboy played in tearing down Christendom because by the time he came along Maxim was the magazine in every dorm. He only knows:

1) Men liked it. Strike one.
2) It said female attractiveness is objective: hourglass yes, apple-shaped no. Strike two.
3) It featured Donald Trump on the cover at least once. Strikes 3-100.

The fact that the female form was portrayed pornographically doesn't even register with him, because to Millennials "pornography" means gangbangs on Pornhub. To them, an airbrushed collage of the cheerleaders of the Big Ten might as well be the Venus de Milo, making the Playboy of the past just another element of Western Civ that must be corrupted and destroyed.

Of course, that doesn't mean the execs at Playboy had a meeting about how to destroy it. They're trying to keep it alive in a world where magazines in general are dying and free porn is at everyone's fingertips. But it's no accident that they're doing it by going woke and trying to appeal to everyone but their customer base, instead of trying to appeal to that base by focusing more on things like sports, hunting and fishing, beer, gaming, etc. They always go the same direction.

By 2024, if not next year, there will be men competing against women in the Olympics, destroying women's records all over the place, and everyone who is allowed near a microphone will call them women and act like it's the only reasonable way it could be.

"struggles to find its voice"

Aside from simply showing naked ladies (minus certain parts, and increasingly minus no parts), Playboy always had a consistent "voice." (If I have guessed correctly wtf a "voice" is.) Everyone knows the Playboy lifestyle: NYC penthouse apartment, smooth jazz, bathrobes, ladies. Why alter that? Except maybe to change it from jazz to whatever's cool now.

I have a great idea: publish glossy, professional photos of conventionally attractive women lacking body alterations.

Blogger flyingtiger August 03, 2019 10:09 PM  

They have turned PB into a woman's magazine. In woman's magazines, the gay men are the photographers because they love the glamour and beauty. The lesbians write articles and columns about how all men are disgusting perverts. This spells doom for PB.
Women have limited amount of time and money. Why would then buy PB instead of Ophra's
magazine? Even soy boys would get tired of the anti male articles.
I note they will have observers at the photo sessions to prevent sexual harassment. That was never a problem. In true SJW fashion, they have made the change that would hurt woman the most. They are contract employees. PMs not only receive a modeling fee but also a salary for two years. Some PMs goof off while others use this time to learn skills. Though the playboy foundation, they can receive grants to further their education. These benefits will all end due to the sjws. They always double down.

Holeee "Fruit of the GAWDZ"...!
That's a ref to a classic Hustler pictorial. Feel free to Duck Duck Go search it, but "What has been seen...."


Still, well I think Playboy would have learned its lesson from the 2015 no nudity thing... Too bad, it had some of the hottest covers it had had since the 80s.


But that saying going around, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results..."



Frankly Playboy had a pretty easy business model; Put out stuff that appeals to men, focusing on the randy types that love (or desperately want) as much sex as possible. Throw in some socially conscious "Journalism" along with keeping some science fiction writers employed so it has "Socially relevant content"...


Yeah, the internet and all the free content available might have hurt a little. Piercing factory 'woke' clerks at Hastings pretentending they can't get the barcode right and holding the magazine high up and shouting to the manager didn't help either. But they should have had enough momentum to go through decades of legit decline and still kept going strong.


Frankly now the lonely single male lives either with his parents or with 3 others sharing usurious rent working 3 jobs and the porn is I.N.S.E.X. level on the internet. Hand them a Playboy from the 80s or 90s they go "The F---!?" that this country used to be that prosperous... If I ran the thing I'd still keep the bunnies but put stuff that appeals to social radicals with a "Pox on both your houses" approach to Democrats AND Republicans, blaming both for the country's decline - but a message of becoming socially active and trying to do stuff (Voting, for instance) to improve society. I'd also make a LOT more pages with Bunny Fluff, not a couple of pages printed so thin they stick together even before 'reading' of said magazine. Really, the average porno shoot they click pics of the lady enough times even the 'better than bad' photos could fill the magazine. Then the 'pictorial' is 6 pages at best... That is what the internet offers that the magazines don't. Sacrifice some filler, weave in some ads, put lots more glamour pics so you get more content in exchange for supporting an old school format.
