I’ve never read a Playboy. Never picked one up, never gone to the website, never gone looking for scanned articles.
So I don’t know the quality of articles that the Hef normally produces.
I have, however, done a lot of research on Hugh Hefner. He was interviewed for a video I watched during a Marriage & Family soc class in college and I was instantly fascinated by his relationship with the human body – and how it almost seemed healthy and realistic compared to the abstinence only education I received in school with classmates who I knew were sexually active – and not being smart about it. So – for all the slack Hef gets – I still think he’s onto something.
However … the more I see coverage of Heidi Montag’s playboy spread and article, the more I think Hef may have lowered his standards for this one.
Maybe I’m wrong. But I think the coverage of the article speaks for itself.
