back to article Playboy flashes 3D centerfold

The June issue of Playboy will feature added substance in the form of 3D centerfold Hope Dworaczyk - a first for the men's mag, which is trying to cash in on the success of Avatar and the like. The magazine's founder Hugh Hefner reportedly asked: "What would people most like to see in 3D?" "Probably a naked lady," came his own …

Erm, probably won't be the first to say this but I think you'll find that the Dworaczyk in question is a she and will be the lady to get the 3D treatment.

Goodness, no!

The guy writing "Everything is crap" columns for PC Mag is called Dvorak. I recently happened to land at one of them. Based on the accompanying mugshot, I predict that showing him naked on a centerfold will be a certain method to lower Playboy (or even Playmate) sales to zero with a single issue.

We don't need 3-D Porn

Anyone could do 3-D. What the "Industry" needs is Feel O' Vision (tm). Really I'm tired of darting at things coming out of the screen.

"He said: "People want things that last and have meaning. This particular picture is one example of how books and magazines are different. You can hold it in your hands, save them, and as dad used to, put them under the mattress.""

I never, ever want to get that mental image again.

So my dad is definitely a mothayfookay.

Mind you, I could have told you that from my experiences of him teaching me to drive, arf.

Falling figures

>Circulation has dropped from 3.5 million in 2006 to 1.5 million today.

I'd blame electronic downloads and file sharing, they'd better form an alliance with the RIAA and MPAA I also understand Nick Clegg is looking to join anyone who will listen to him.

what would Heff say?

Why would HH need a 3D centerfold, no doubt he could get "on demand" access in the flesh to said beauty.

Not jealous ( in case the wife reads this)

Surely...

...if the centre-fold were one of the Navi people, it'd make for a VERY blue edition of the magazine.....?

What?

"Playboy editorial director Jimmy Jellinek said he hoped Friday's "newsstand event" would remind readers that while the internet's all well and good for perusing smut, there's nothing quite like a hard copy in your hands."

Who reads Playboy with 2 hands?

I remember the Sun publishing their page 3 dolly in glorious 3D back in 1990-ish. Free pair of green/red glasses came with it. Though as I was a young adolescent, I only remember thinking "BOOBS! WOOO!" and can't remember if the 3D was any good.

Playboy is hardly the best place to put a 3D image

Will any of the regular readers notice that it's 3D? They'll open up the centrefold, see the blurry, double-vision image of a naked woman, and assume that the "you'll go blind" warning was true.

How?

I know you're not going to pretend that you're publishing this because of the tech angle. Nonetheless, it wouldn't have hurt to include some tech information: how exactly are they going to print a 3D image on a flat paper centerfold? I can think of some optical illusion techniques, but none of them deservers to be called 3D.

Something missed

Given it was always my dream to be the fella that left old jazz mags under a hedge to be found by young lads, does tis mean I need to make sure I also leave some spare 3d specs?

Funny you should say that

Was out cycling in the middle of the Norfolk fens the other day, and found an acceptably untarnished jazz mag on the verge. Wasn't very exciting though. Odd that they still need to censor certain, shall we say, penetrative acts.

Anonymous - don't want people to know I was out cycling in Norfolk.

staples?

Now we'll be able to see just how far that staple penetrated.

Mine's the one with the deep, magazine-sized pockets.

Been done long, long ago

At (Public) school we were looking for a hiding place for contraband booze. We lifted a floorboard and found a small stash of magazines, judging from the decor, scanties, appearance of the ladies featured I guess 1920/30s vintage. They were mostly B&W but one was 2 colour printing and with 3D specs we were able to delight in the full experience. The extent of airbrushing meant that when we subsequently encountered real women we were surprised to find they had nipples and pubic hair - now I understand the latter confusion could still apply in some cases, however nowadays (I'm reliably informed) the absence of pubic hair reveals details not disclosed in our day.

I think even then (1960s) our contemporary smutty mags were still constrained from showing nipples (etc).

Us old guys did it with steam.

Cut and paste and iron that sucker down.

(and actually the paste wasn't that damn bad back then.)

But you could get burned.

(Had to be pretty stupid to pick up the wrong end of an iron; but crap happens.)

They need Na'vi models, not 3D. I'd buy it then...
