    Steal one from my brother? Sure.

    My cool Uncle? No problem, he had stacks of them.

    The video store where you rented videos every week and were on a first name basis with the owner? In a New York minute
    I had an older brother who hoarded Playboy and Penthouse when we were kids. Kept them in a box under his gun rack (liked to go hunting with Dad) with a sheet of paper on top, "BE DAMNED" writ on it large.

    To this day I have no idea what "BE DAMNED" was about--no nerve to ask. Maybe a part of him feared for his soul. Maybe it was a warning to nosy little brothers to not go where angels fear to tread. All I know is I opened one to its centerfold and my eyeballs fell out...

    When Dick Berggren started a magazine about ten years ago I bought a subscription.

    Didnt take long to realize it was mostly Winston/Nextel Cup fluff articles and it got to the point where it would arrive in the mail and Id leaf thru it in a minute or maybe two and throw it on the pile.

    They kept sending me issues loooong after the subscription ended. I had no intention of re-newing and I kept leafing thru it on the way inside then forgetting about it

    Nor the odd yet slightly thrilling feeling of walking into their bedroom and finding their girlfriend reading one....

    I got Maxim for a year or two. I did some close checking on credit card statements in case it sneaked in there someplace. I even called the subscription number in the magazine and was told some subscription service was sending them out and they didn't have any way to cancel it. Strange business. I can see why they have to give it away. I just took them from the mailbox directly to the recycle bin.

    I was a Playboy subcriber for nine years. Loved the magazine, butnyoh could tell it was struggling..

    First, it was ten issues a year instead of twelve. Then the renewal calls after I let my subscription run out when I moved in with my folks. I never had anyone call me for a magazine renewal until they called. They tried three times even with the "last chance" pricing. Knowing how upset Mom would be if I renewed,I turned them down.

    I could see this coming but you are still shocked at the announcement...unless you are under the age of 30. Then you are wondering why they took so long.

    In Germany nothing will change. But then again we have naked women in TV commercials.

    August, because it's just too hot, and September because that's when football starts.


    Wait a minute, did you mean the magazine?

    Jan/Feb and July/Aug IIRC. They made them double issues with two playmates in the issue.

    I subscribed from about 1976 to about 1984 when they started putting in a scratch n sniff Calvin Klein cologne ad. I could walk in the lobby of my apartment building and know that my Playboy had arrived. Smelled like a hot day at the hog farm. Even after I tore the page out and carried it out to the dumpster it still stunk up the whole apartment. My wife finally told me to quit bringing it in the apartment so I would carry it around back, leaf through the "articles" and toss it in the dumpster.

    As a Playboy subscriber for near on forty years, I will miss the nudity but I will continue my subscription. I have long enjoyed both pornography and nudity, though there has never been any of the former in Playboy magazine, but there are too many sources for both types of material today for Playboy to be a competitive provider.

    Playboy has always provided first-class fiction writing, insightful analysis of North American cultural trends, informative and revealing interviews, tremendous humor, reasonable and useful advice on a variety of subjects, surprisingly good sports coverage, and, admittedly, some pictures of attractive young females. While I originally subscribed to the magazine largely for the pictorials ( and I remember many of them fondly ) , it has been many years since the nudity has been the main reason for my renewing.

    It'll be interesting to see whether the redesign of the magazine will allow it to survive longer than Hefner himself.

    I use to read Penthouse letters... So I'm already prepared for this.

    And yes... An amputee is still on my bucket list.

    I'd rather have one of the past Playmates as my roomate, like say Terri Doss or Kelly Tough.

    Barbi Benton was terrific and stuck around for a few pictorials but was never an official Playmate. My favorite is still DeDe Lind ; that's been a few years though.

    No, never an "official" Playmate, but Wow.

    Yup, first time I was jealous of Hefner.
