PLAYGIRL Magazine to Relaunch Next Week After Years Absence.

PLAYGIRL magazine originally published for women but who also had a large gay fanbase will relaunch next month after a four year absence.

The (ehmm) legendary publication which ran from 1973 to 2016 will relaunch is this coming Monday, October 26.

Playgirl‘s new editor Jack Lindley-Kuhns has said that he” “will unveil a modern mold” for the magazine this month — a mold that looks beyond a simple state of undress. Sure, the infamous centerfold will make its comeback, but in a far more decadent way.

Playgirl, according to their new publisher, “represents an open message that eroticism has no gender right now, and no sexual tendency, and Playgirl is pure eroticism on paper to take home. It’s a fantasy. The magazine was focused on the idea of desire, but desire in every topic they touch—in the environment, health, politics. It’s a magazine about desire.”

Playgirl’s Vol. 1, No. 1 appeared in June 1973, featuring Lyle Waggoner as the centerfold. Other early centerfolds included George Maharis, Don Stroud, Christopher George, Fabian Forte, Peter Lupus and professional athlete Jim Brown.

There has been no word about who the first centerfold will be.
