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 figurea??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. Friedmana??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 killera??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.

  • Great Magazine and Service
    I was a little hesitant to order this because a few people said that they did not receive it in a timely fashion. I received an email notification saying that I would receive the first issue around the middle of January. My first issue arrived only about a week or two after I placed the order, almost a month earlier than I expected to receive the first. You can't beat the price that Amazon offers on this, and the service was great. Thanks!...more info
  • Female Fan
    I've been a fan of playboy ever since i found a stack in my dad's closet. Why? because the articles are great! that was years ago and i still fight my boyfriend for the chance to read it first. It's one the few magazines left that you can really read. I'm so sick of the female magazines that tell you how to please your man and all that junk. you only hve to buy one mag and you know all the information for the next 11 issues.

    EVERRYONE should have a subscription to playboy, not just the boys!!!...more info
  • Better than ever
    Playboy is still the best mens magazine available. I had Maxim but it is geared towards the younger crowd. Any guy 30 or older should give this a spin. My wife bought a subscription for me and I hope she renews it next year!...more info
  • Hot, fascinating, interesting and fresh
    I like this magazine because it offers almost everything a man may want in a tasteful, entertaining and informative magazine. Of course, the accent is on gorgeous women who are tastefully exposed but not completely because it is always nice to have a little bit left to the imagination. The models are exceptional women issue after issue and the magazine delivers again and again. There are questions with celebrity persons and editorials, the humoristic part is also captivating. There is even political commentary. However, the most memorable part are the top quality photos throughout the content and after I turned from average into a great lover thanks to the bestseller scientfically guaranteed male multiple orgasms and ultimate sex, I am even confident enough to hang out with girls out of my usual league. After all, it is nice to watch hot girls at the pages but it is also good to do something to hang out with such. Overall, it offers a lot to young and older men with various interests and demands, and I am sure that you will enjoy your subscription. They also add spicy bonuses so don't be very surprised if you get also a DVD or something. Enjoy....more info
