I am not a Playboy lifer, so I will start this off by saying these may not be the HOTTEST Playboy Playmates ever, but I like to think there's a nice enough sample of hot Playboy Playmates to justify the title.
I realize that some of you grew up on Playboy or had access to Playboy and spent your teen years married to the magazine. I wasn't that guy. If Playboys came around I'd look at them like the next horny guy, but I never stole them, bought them, or even really cared that they existed at the time, but in hindsight, it was obviously an iconic and innovative brand that provoked, caused controversy and scandal, created careers, some still making fortunes and only because they did Playboy.
The reality is that in my era, when I would have been a Playboy shopper, the internet existed and I didn't need those kinds of shoot, it was really for the generation older than me. Plus Hef started to lose his touch, he started using trashier and trashier girls, and the whole allure wasn't there. Then they did a whole digital strategy that bombed, removed nudity from the magazine and let Pornhub's parent company run the nudie section. Just a series of "Playboy sucks for a billion dollar brand".
But there was a gilded age of Playboy, from Pam Anderson in the mid-90s, to so many more amazing talents
So to hate on Playboy would be to hate on something so important, at least in terms of my personal interests of nude models.
Instead, we compile some Throwback Thursday Pics from the brand to remind you of what they were and what they may be once again.
