The Portuguese publishing partners of Playboy are getting crucified for their July issue. Their in-poor-taste cover features a racy pic of Christ cradling a nakey Mary Magdalene type. Inside the issue, there is allegedly a photo spread featuring the lord and savior observing a lesbian kiss.
Playboy Enterprises Inc. is less than thrilled about the JC spread. In fact, they want to sever ties with their Portuguese partners for neglecting to get the controversial cover approved before publication. But the pics of Christ’s res-erection may not have been meant to be exploitative or offensive—they are thought to be a tribute to Portuguese author Jose Saramago who recently passed. His last novel published was The Gospel According to Jesus Christ. So what do you think? Was this cover too blasphemous for publication? [AOL] Keep reading »

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Today’s challenge: Would you rather appear completely naked (we’re talking full-frontal, vag-in-view nudity) on the cover of Vogue, or appear fully-clothed in a Playboy spread? Strip for a classy mag, and most supermarket shoppers will now know what your ta-tas look like. Stay clothed for the porn publication, and you may get less exposure (if they keep the Playboy issues behind the counter), but your reputation might suffer … especially if your face happens to appear right next to the MTV reality star du jour’s vag.

Bored at work? A little horny? Head right on over to Playboy‘s website for a gratuitous boob photo spread on the “Evolution of the Boob”! Playboy dipped into their old photos to show us breasts from the past six decades because, apparently, “boob shape” is as cyclical as fashion. Now, I looked at those mammaries long and hard and I daresay there’s no difference between ’50s boobs or ’80s boobs or ’90s boobs. The only way breasts have “evolved” — if you could even call it that — would be in terms of “pre-breast implants” and “post breast-implants.” But hey, if Playboy‘s foxy Miss November pin-up 1958 reminds men that bleached blond hair, fake nails and giant silicone tatas were not always considered “attractive,” fine with me!
