I really do read it for the articles…

I read Playboy for the articles. Really I do.

For example, in October’s issue (which I received a couple of days ago) there is a great interview with George Carlin, a couple of essays on the World Bank, and a great little short story by this year’s winner of their annual college fiction contest.

I look at the girls as well — don’t get me wrong — but I just don’t find myself incredibly turned on by an airbrushed, 20-year old blonde with big boobs. I don’t even find the basic idea of nudity itself to be that exciting. I tend to more inspired by lingerie, clothing that conceals as it reveals (like, say, the Victoria’s Secret Catalog)… it does more to fire my imagination.

Anyhow… it was just an interesting realization I had earlier today.
