I haven't cared about Playboy in many years, but back in the day it employed some of the best writers in the biz, and the Playboy Interview was generally respected and very cool. Hef's "Playboy Philosophy" was unreadable nonsense, but otherwise it actually was a good read (great cartoonists also) as long as the pages weren't stuck together.
Or in my case a 14 year old kid in the mid 60's who was given a subscription to Playboy by my recently divorced mother...supposedly justified by the fact I was a James Bond fan and had read every book, and now Playboy was serializing Ian Fleming's new stuff...an absolutely perfect diversion, and how else was I to know the proper way to tie a bowtie, learn about Shelby Cobras and Mercedes 600s, mix a perfect martini, read interviews of Dylan, the Beatles, Tim Leary, etc., and the history of Wing Tips....every 14 year old should know these things...
