Still a little to plain for my taste, but getting better. Have a great day.

For me, too. Too clean cut:)

Debbie...We need to remember that women were not yet liberated in those days and if the covers had been much racier they would never have been put on bookshelves. There are "light" years between today's covers and back then. Oh yeah, baby...we've come a long way;)

I love that women have grown enough to be able to look at slurpy man candy and appreciate a fine male body when they see one...not to mention walking in a bookstore and without batting an eyelash purchasing a book with one of those said fine specimen's on the cover...hot and half naked:)

Question: When you began your journey to liberation, what year did you purchase your first copy of "Playgirl"?

Mine was early 1970's...way before I started reading romance....Nancy:)

LOL...I've never bought a playgirl, honest. I saw one once, a long long time ago. Can't even recall where. Know who was in it...nekked? Lou Farigno. I know I spelled that wrong. Remember the muscular hunk who played the hulk in the old TV series?
