Playboy has just made it easier to be creepy on the go. Every single issue of the men’s monthly - all 60 years of them – is now available on the iPad. The service, titled iPlayboy, allows consumers to subscribe for $8 per month or $60 per year to see the complete, uncensored archives.
Jellinek is optimistic people will pony up the $8 per month or $60 per year for a service that’s ‘meant to appeal to that sense of collective nostalgia and affinity.’ He calls the website ‘the world’s sexiest time machine’ and ‘an anthology of cool’ for a magazine he refers to as ‘the Mount Rushmore of literary greatness.’
We have to give Jellinek some credit, “anthology of cool” sounds a lot better than “Magazine that old dudes look at while they’re in the bathroom.”
