Sensing dearth of Internet porn, Playboy puts entire collection of magazines online

Once again, Hef is on the cutting edge! How does he do it?

Tired of scouring the Internet for porn to no avail? Well, there's some good news: Hugh Hefner has come to your rescue.

From the Associated Press:

Playboy launched a Web-based subscription service Thursday called i.Playboy.com that allows viewers to see every single page of every single magazine — from the first issue nearly 60 years ago that featured Marilyn Monroe to the ones hitting the newsstands today.

In a press release, Playboy said the new service "gives users the opportunity to read, search and explore every issue of Playboy ever published. The service is optimized for the iPad and uses iPad functions."

What are you going to do about that, Mr. Steve "Apple doesn't do porn" Jobs? Recall all of your precious iPads?

More from Playboy:

From the inaugural issue with Marilyn Monroe to the current issue with rock heiress Lizzy Jagger on the cover, iPlayboy features every pictorial, interview, Centerfold, investigative reporting piece, story, advertisement and image that ever appeared in the magazine, more than 130,000 pages in total.

Playboy magazine debuted way back in 1953, when Dwight Eisenhower was president, most people still believed the world was flat, and the thought of Hef in the sack with a young beauty didn't make us nauseous.

Even though a lot has changed since then, one thing has remained constant: Men absolutely lust for interesting magazine articles surrounded by pictures of naked women. We can't help it; it's in our blood.

Now Playboy is giving us the whole ball of naked wax, undoubtedly beating WikiLeaks to the punch by mere days.

Playboy said the site will "also feature exclusive videos and curated content recommendations submitted by members of the Playboy Commission, a high-profile panel of celebrated individuals from art, design, fashion, media and technology."

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger on the Playboy Commission? If he isn't, he should be. Someone might want to also put in a word for Clarence Thomas. Let's get some qualified people on there! (I'm available too, though Hef will have to cover my plane fare to Chicago for the meetings. I'm only mentioning this because I want to help.)

Subscriptions are available for $8 per month, $60 per year and $100 for two years, Playboy said. A small price to pay to finally get some porn online!

That is, if you're into that kind of thing.
