Playgirl is a monthly erotic lifestyle magazine published in the United States that features seminude or fully nude men. The magazine was founded in 1973 during the height of the feminist movement as a response to erotic men’s magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse that featured similar photos of women. Throughout the history of the magazine, Playgirl has featured male frontal nudity except for the early issues in 1973, and 1987 when John Paul became the year’s first full frontal centerfold in November after ten months of non-nude photo spreads.
Apart from professional models, Playgirl features amateur models in a section called Real Men (formerly known as Snapshots). A Real Men of the Year contest is held, in which readers can vote for the best layout of the year.
The first erection was shown in November 1978 and featured HOWIE GORDAN, see picture below Throughout the years the magazine has matured as erections, foreskin, and non-Caucasian models have been shown in the magazine. The magazine generally featured models who have been circumcised but of late, layouts with uncircumcised models are featured. Playgirl has not been successful in persuading many male celebrities to disrobe, nor have any of its nude models risen to major stardom in films; the most famous is likely Sam J. Jones who went on to play Flash Gordon in a 1980 film. August 1991, featured, Shaheed, who is believed to have the biggest penis(10×10 erect) that has appeared in the magazine, see pictures below.
