Playboy Launches New Safe-For-Work Website Without Naked Women

Playboy Enterprises Inc. has been struggling in recent years, now that porn is everywhere you click. Sure, plenty of dudes (six million, to be exact) still visit Playboy.com every month, but they’re less likely to do so when they’re at work, what with all the naked ladies and whatnot. So, the always-thoughtful Playboy guys created a new safe-for-work website for fans of the magazine who would like their online experience with a little less nipples, please, TheSmokingJacket.com. Of course, the name of The Smoking Jacket is taken from Hef’s favorite garment worn over his omnipresent red silk pajamas. The content is a little bit Maxim and generally pretty horny-doggy, but we found it to be a bit more female-friendly than Playboy.com, where it’s all Playmates all the time. Not that we don’t like Playmates. It’s just that it can get a little crowded with that many boobs around, you know? In any case, we’ll be reading. [Yahoo! News] Keep reading »

Women Are Most Appealing At Age 31

Eat this all you young, hot 20-somethings. According to a new survey, women are at the peak of their appeal at age 31. Why? Well, because aside from still having their good looks, they possess the X-factor that only comes with age: confidence. The thought is that by the age of 31, a woman has let go of insecurities and feels comfortable in her own skin. This includes having a more authentic sense of style and radiating a feeling of beauty. I don’t wanna brag, but if this survey is correct, this should be a very, very good year for me. [And me! -- Editor] And my apologies to the gorgeous 20-somethings I may have insulted. You’re hot and you know it. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
