Actually, I was kind of surprised to hear that Playboy still existed. It seems like a relic from the past, like Life magazine; like marshmallows in Jello; like Magnum P.I. One thing I remember about the Playboy Advisor was that there was always one question about stereos, one question about alcoholic beverages, one question about cars, and one question about how to have sex with a woman, which always made it seem like women were consumer products like stereos, alcohol, and cars. Even to a young man like me, that seemed really creepy and took the fun out of what I had hoped would have been a more significant experience.
Or a relic from the past calling itself a"young man" actually making a really dopey post. your only experience is one handed keyboard sitting.

She's run the company into the ground. If it wasn't her dad's firm she would have been canned a long time ago.

Christie Hefner is to Joey Meyer as Ray Meyer is to Hugh Hefner

This company has underperformed for years.
If she wasn't Hugh's daughter, she would have been axed years ago.

Playboy Magazine is everything that is America. Like baseball & apple pie, it'll be around long after those who founded it, and (like Christie) kept it going.

I hope Playboy goes under. Porn tears at the moral fiber of this country. Playboy is an abomination!
How about corporate corruption? You've had that since before there was porn? How about fast food, junk food, tobacco, advertising, public relations, etc? Corporate greed is way more immoral. Porn is voluntary. People losing their jobs involuntarily due to corporate crimes is not?

Why is it that when something is successful
there will be detractors who are jealous that
they did not think of it?

After WW2 there were huge numbers of guys who were climbing the economic ladder after serving in the military..
These guys were the eligible bachelors and wanted
clubs to attend.. Playboy was the answer in Chicago..
If this was started in Los Angeles would there be
the noise about it?

Hef Moved... to LA... probably because of the
weather and the corruption.

If you compare the number of jobs created by Hef,
it certainly outnumbers those "created"
by the government of today...
These were Shovel Ready Jobs... for Bunnies
(I can Dig it. ;-) How can that be bad?

Go Hef!

Lets hope that the Misery of the US ends soon and that
Bunnies Live On
