The first issue of Playgirl magazine, the now-out-of-print glossy magazine that sought to capitalize on female desire with nude male centerfolds and features articles written for and by women, came out in Junebarely four years after the Stonewall Uprising. Its first issue sold out, sellingcopies in just four days. Gay writer Matthew Rettenmund just wrote a short history of the publicationshedding light on its gradual and reluctant embrace of its gay readers.

Apparently, Playgirl launched in as a "feminist response to Playboy and Penthouse. But it is good to now know that, as many celebrated their right to choose, some also rejoiced at their right to sexy pictorials of men with feathered lockshandlebar mustaches and hair busting cleavage-like from plunging necklines.

Playgirl magazine caters mainly to heterosexual women, as well as a lesser percentage of gay and bisexual men, with its main content primarily comprised of partially to fully nude male photos.

My favorite websites now post updates with new models at least once a week, and sometimes I find myself having to download and save these men for later viewing. When magazines used to dole out men, there was only one centerfold model per month; and he was a prize whose pages you would guard, pore over and revisit time and again.

Of course, I would also take the opportunity to grab copies of Men, Freshmen and any other glossy gay porn monthly with a handsome hunk on the cover while I was at the counter.
