I began this tumblr as a collection of my favorite vintage playboy ads and articles featuring beautiful men. In the 60s and 70s Playboy was less about exploiting women (as some may expect) and more about honing oneself into the ideal of manhood. It was about worldliness. It was about being attractive. It was about being a sex object yourself. It was about lambasting politicians who fought to keep down the progress of women’s equality and gay rights. It was about being sexually educated.
It is a personal ritual, that whenever a new friend visits me in my home, I show them my vintage playboys. These wonderful ads (and sometimes articles) are always a hit, and I hope you will enjoy them as I share them here.
I will only add the date of the Playboy as a note (aside from any other comments) but if you want more information, just ask.
