Playlinguist

Playlinguist, “The Magazine of Full-Frontal Grammar”, has now been revamped as Parts of Speech, a lifestyle magazine for trendy metrolinguals, as you can see in today’s Bizarro:

Just to remind you:

Playboy is an American men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine. It was founded in Chicago in 1953, by Hugh Hefner and his associates, and funded in part by a $1,000 loan from Hefner’s mother. Notable for its centerfolds of nude and semi-nude models (Playmates), Playboy played an important role in the sexual revolution and remains one of the world’s best-known brands, having grown into Playboy Enterprises, Inc., with a presence in nearly every medium.

… After a year-long removal of most nude photos in Playboy magazine, the March-April 2017 issue brought back nudity. (Wikipedia link)

Meanwhile, Parts of Speech will continue Playlinguist‘s centerfold displays of bare verb stems, with even more hot stuff for your pleasure. Coming soon: a regular column on Russian hard consonants (no more soft consonants for us!). Plus an advice column — in the next issue, the skinny on pharyngeals, “Deep-Throating 101”.

And then there’s Playgirl:

Playgirl is an American magazine that features general interest articles, lifestyle and celebrity news, in addition to semi-nude or fully nude men. In the 1970s and 1980s the magazine printed monthly and was marketed mainly to women, although, as the magazine knew, it had a significant gay male readership, in a period in which gay male erotic magazines were few.

The magazine was founded in 1973 by Douglas Lambert 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.

… The last print issue to date was for Winter 2016. As of 2016 the magazine was believed to have had only approximately 3,000 subscribers. [It now seems to be defunct.] (Wikipedia link)

Well, these days you can get all the steamy photos of naked men you want, all types, soft and hard. Though if you want high-quality photos of full-frontal male celebrities, you might regret the passing of Playgirl.
