But at least those women are consenting adults. I'm sure playboy would object if americans started getting implants for their baby girls.

I tried to find info about Playgirl but nothing online. I've understood that most American women still prefer cut and therefor cut their own sons, magazines like Playgirl could do great advocacy to show intact men.

Only thing I do remember - and this was years ago - when Playgirl came to Russia, it did not go well since Russian women were totally weirded out by circumcised penises.

It's great to see Playboy take this stance. I'm not huge into porno but I have noticed intact men are more of a desired commodity for these films. Anything that can educate men/women on the "phenomenon" (by US standards) of thre foreskin! I guess it serves to benefit the female porn stars, so they'll know circ is the true main source of sexual frustration.

Yeah, I got that. Really.

What I don't get is placing Playboy on a moral pinnacle at a website frequented mostly by progressive women. The way the P'boy empire treats boobs as a commodity is one of the reasons women get criticized for bf'ing in public. Boobs aren't for babies, they're for biz, doncha know?

Actually strangely enough they are not so fond of that look any more, they tend to aim for medium sized women with breasts which do not look like they have had bicycle pumps affixed to the nipples and inflated.

Or...Um...At least, so I am informed...I watched a documentary on it. For social studies purposes. Obviously.

Moving on...

Yay for Playboy! And, apparently, yay for Hustler as well! I am very glad to hear this, I could imagine this having some impact.

It makes sense that Playboy would take this stance, given that Heff is intact.

Heck, it's helping to convince DH that circumcising our (hopefully!) future son is idiotic and pointless. Please...if it looks weird and grosses women out, (2 of DH's lamer arguments) how does Heff get so much play?

That's nice on all fronts. America must learn to appreciate sexuality au naturelle like the Europeans do. That means without cosmetic surgeries galore. I find natural breasts waaay more attractive even if they're medium than gigantic silicone breasts. So maybe these mags will sway popular opinion a bit until like Europe, people believe in natural breasts as well as a natural penis (not cut up at all!!!).

I have only read about half this thread, but wanted to respond about Playgirl.

I have a quick link to their "Daily Fix" online page. It's just a different photo every day of a man. Every single time the man is intact, they have him positioned with his fingers straddling his pubic fat pad area pulling the skin back towards his groin, effectively giving him a circumcised look. It's terribly disappointing.

Everytime the whole Playboy thing comes up, everyone seems to forget Hustler which took this stance and published a very blatant anti-circ ARTICLE in 1979. Where's the props for them?
Oh, Sheetz! I need to move back to PA!

I'll bite this loaded question! Well, yes, Playboy is porn but I personally don't believe that all porn is uh, whats the word? BAD? Morally wrong? Evil?

Playboy is pretty 'soft' and also respectful, I think. Of women, of different gender relationships (GTLB), sexual choices, and also does a lot of social commentary. While the women often look a little plastic, that is certainly the standard of beauty these days. I am not bothered by the women (they are consenting adults and they are paid and it's their choice) and I have always liked the reporting and fiction pieces.

We subscribed for a long time, but don't currently; I'm trying to cut down on some 'extras'.

I was happy to stumble on this thread! We need more pro-intact publicity.
