Waxing Nostalgic - Playmates from the 70s and 80s

Direct quote from this officially-sanctioned Playboy greatest pube hits:

"It’s the hottest trip through time in history as Playboy takes you on a sentimental journey illustrating the always sexy but ever-evolving below-the-waist hairstyles of the world’s most beautiful women!"

Some thoughts:

  • 1970s tanlines = A+
  • 1980s megamuffs are awesome (and surprisingly have even more volume/height than the ’70s ones?)
  • the curtains rarely match the carpet
  • the “landing strip” seems to have begun in 1997
  • by 2006, and beyond, there is literally no hair at all

Fun Fact: Playboy was one of only two magazines/periodicals (the other was either The New Yorker or US Rolling Stone, I think) that my gender studies tutor accepted as an essay reference (she preferred books), because of the quality of the articles.

    So if you click the link it’s definitely NSFW, seeing as it’s Playboy Playmates from 1971 to 2008. What I wanted to talk...

    I looooove these photos (warning though: very white, all ‘conventionally attractive’ bodies).
