    I agree with most of what you said.

    I’ve never seen Playboy as the magazine for the frat boy, but as the sophisticated gentleman.

    IMO, Playboy has gotten away from what it’s true roots are. At one time it used to give reviews of stereo equipment, movies, and have fashion for men. The cartoons and ladies were the things that made Playboy iconic, but I think those other things helped make it an institution, as well.

    If you look at those things, then in all honesty Maxim and Stuff magazines are more like the heirs to that legacy than this new thing that Playboy has become.
