Playboy Philippines (Photos)

March 26, 2008

The Philippines has its own version of Playboy magazine, but this edition will not feature nudity. What? No nude photos of beautiful Filipina women? Come on! See photos below.








Playboy Philippines launches on April 2nd, and its editor in chief, Beting Laygo Dolor, insists that the first issue is a “good read”, even if it does not feature any nudity. Circulation for Playboy magazine has declined internationally, with stiff (no pun intended) competition from FHM and Maxim. He is touting Playboy Philippines is a “lifestyle magazine for mature, successful men and women”. Let’s be serious, do they really think that Filipino men are going to pick up the mag for its articles? Please.

This is the 25th international edition of the popular men’s magazine, which debuted more than 50 years ago. The Philippine edition of Playboy will have its own version of “playmate of the month” and it will feature articles and fictional stories by some of the country’s renowned writers.

The Philippines is mostly Roman Catholic, and watchdog groups have even filed criminal charges against those affiliated with movies and publications that show nudity, which is probably a big reason why Playboy Philippines did not go the raunchier route. Sorry guys…

See photos of beautiful Filipina celebrities below. Could they be posing for Playboy soon?

    Playboy Philippines is much more than a BOO… it is a insult to the Playboy editions worldwide.

    Dalisay and Yuson and the other Palanca award winners are excellent writers… excellent but boring. pretty much like their newpaper columns. there’s just no way that they can catch the attention of magazine readers. as i’ve mentioned in other blogs and sites… Beting has formed a dream team… for a NEWSPAPER! they are entering a genre which they cannot possibly comprehend. they are dependent on words… a magazine is not a newspaper… magazines depend heavily on visuals. which none of the editorial team of Playboy… and their useless Palanca writers have. you cannot teach a geriatric dog new tricks. Dolor, Yuson, Dalisay, and the rest are not even willing to embrace this. how can they possibly succeed?

    And the publisher is more concerned about acquiring the Playboy Casino. he does not give a damn about the magazine. At least Gokongwei of Summit and Lopez of Abs-Cbn pub are conscious about the quality of their mags. Mr. Ku… just simply… doesn’t care. that’s why it’s ok for Playboy Philippines to look like crap… as long as he can hold on and wait for Playboy international to foolishly give him the casino franchise… he’s happy.

    but you have to give it to the Playboy Philippines people. they are a hardy bunch. i guess for people like Krip Yuson… this is his last stab at fame and fortune. and for people like Beting Dolor… he’s just too old to do anything else. pretty much like their magazine… it is a desperate attempt.

    me and my friends saw a copy of the 2nd Playboy Philippines…

    much better! i guess Beting & friends finally got their act together.

    cover girl is Raquel Gibson. one of the Fil-Am international covergirls before. thank god the cover is finally a full body shot! it’s a shot of her on a bangka SS Raquel. much better.

    although i still didn’t buy it… so i have no idea how the inside looks like. anybody out there seen the inside?

    I don’t think this was approved by Hugh Hefner. Look at playboy.com and go to international editions. Playboy Philippines is not included. Playboy US is cool. Ito? ewan ko…HINDI. FHM is 10x better than playboy philippines. Onetime, I read a copy of this at powerbooks. Grabe! it was horrible! ang pangit ng laman! boring sobra! Kahit yung mga models, damn! pag nakita ni hugh hefner yan, rejected kagad yan! I’m not kidding. Watch the show “girls next door” and you will see how meticulous mr. hefner sa pag pili ng mga models na ilalagay sa magazine niya. Onetime, 100 ang shots 1 or 2 lang ang nakuha.

    ANG PLAYBOY PHILIPPINES BARA-BARA LANG!
