Playboy: the original "I read it for the articles" nudie magazine was founded in 1953 by the legendary Hugh Hefner and associates (along with a $1,000 IOU from Mama Hef).

Rather, the mission of Playboy Magazine is to create a unique cocktail of sexuality, politics, art, and culture for the man about town who is all about experiencing the finer things in life, which obviously includes lots of boobies.
