Playboy à portuguesa

Mónica Sofia (a crer na capa, fotografada numa produção low cost numa gruta na reboleira), Pacman, Costinha, Rute Penedo, Nuno Saraiva, Pedro Paixão, Ana Anes, Nuno Markl ou de como cada país tem o Norman Mailer que merece.
"Sure, the reason most of us started reading Playboy was for the girls. But when the history of American magazines is written, people who said "I read it for the articles" will have the last laugh. As will Hugh Hefner, who told a reunion of Playmates in 1979, "Without you, I'd be the publisher of a literary magazine." With new editor James Kaminsky starting this week, and even Hefner saying the magazine needs to recapture its distinction, Playboy has the opportunity to be a catalyst for change in the magazine world. It can do what it did in the '60s and be a magazine with balls (and boobs), leading the moribund magazine world into a new era of editorial rebirth. A pipe dream, I know, but not a complete fantasy." da Saloon.
