PLAYGIRL Celebrity Poll. Who was your favorite centerfold?

The Jim Brown thread got me to thinking about the various celebrities who showed us some skin in the magazine's hey day. Who was your favorite?

by Anonymousreply 12312/06/2016

Fabian and Jim Brown!

by Anonymousreply 110/07/2013

Have to go with jim brown. Chris atkins a close second. Jim browns masculinity, body and cock were luscious. Chris is really hot too but he was pretty skinny with a small dick. Surprised dan pastorini not in the poll. He only showed his ass and body but i would have sucked and ate the hell out of him just like jim and chris. All three are beautiful men but only chris and jim only showed celebrity cock in playgirl.

Thanks for a poll long, long overdue. Somebody is skewing this poll away from Jim Brown, the greatest NFL player of all time. Everyone else dwarfs completely by comparison. Fabian contorted to hide it, and Chris Atkins was never a centerfold. What a pity that Jim Brown had to be a one in a billion, once in a lifetime occurrence. Even with sexual freedom, gay liberation, Obama, Huffington :Post, msnbc, etc.. it would never happen today.

But Matuszak didn't show it! But oh that butt! I fantasized about using it for a pillow at night. As long as he didn't have gas. For the record, did he die of AIDS?

Fred Williamson was the handsomest, but he didn't show the goods.

by Anonymousreply 1410/07/2013

according to imdb: He died of heart failure, which was probably caused by on by an overdose of pain medication and pneumonia. He also had cocaine in his system at the time of his death.

I do remember once doing a paper on Aids for school and I had some People magazine article or something like that about Hollywood's reaction to AIDS. Matuszak was quoted about how he was storing up his own blood in case he ever needed a transfusion. He sounded kind of homophobic to my young ear but I guess he could have been overcompensating.

Speaking of Dan Pastorini, I remember a shot of him standing under a locker room shower wearing nothing but a jock strap. It was a hot picture. He posed a second time a few years later but they were all bush and ass shots... but nice.

I think Lupus' wife convinced him to pose in the all together. The photos are pretty low grade with the lighting.

Maybe if Peter Lupus had seen Playgirl at that time, he would have realized that the celebrities posing either hid their cocks or only showed a sliver of them. His centerfold was unprecedented (and outstanding in my opinion). Not only did he show full frontal, he actually posed with a semi erection on the shot with his red bathrobe open. and these were the days when the centerfolds were four page spreads.

When Lupus was named Man of the Year, a special edition of Playgirl actually showcased his cock on one fully page. As I am writing this now, I am getting hard. Man...was that something.

Lupus was also incredibly handsome. The MI producers knew he couldn't act worth a damn...he always looked like it was painful to get out the couple of lines of dialogue they tossed his way each week. Supposedly he got a ton of fan mail each week from admiring female fans.

Many years ago, I had read something about nude male modeling ............ Often models were semi erect when posing and string of some type was used to pull their dick down so it appeared soft and hanging.

My vote goes for Fred Willimason!

by Anonymousreply 7607/19/2015

[68]My guess is that it was his management at the time.In those days(hell now!)a frontal shot would have been considered too controversial.Atkins himself sold the originals to a company called Baby Janes.He's also willing to autograph them at conventions,which I doubt he'd do that if they were fakes.

by Anonymousreply 7707/19/2015

George Maharis and Peter Lupis for me of those listed.

Steve Bond and Sam Jones were even hotter, but they weren't celebs when they first posted as centerfolds, but Playgirl reran their pics when they became famous years later.

R9 Bill Cable was insanely hot but he wasn't really a celebrity, more a nude model who got a bit parts in a handful of movies (most notably Sharon Stone's first victim in Basic Instinct.)

And also he didn't have a typical solo centerfold in Playgirl but a boy/girl layout with a then unknown Cassandra Peterson (aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark). He later had a part in her Mistress of the Dark movie from 1988. I wonder if they were friends or fuck buddies?

I just looked at Bill Cable's IMDb message board, and according to someone on it he did indeed date Cassandra/Elvira. She spoke and his funeral and said when there were dating (or at one point when they were) they lived in a tree house. Cool of her to give him a part in her movie all those years later.

by Anonymousreply 8407/19/2015

One of Bill Cable's biggest claims to fame was being one of the very most popular Colt models in the early decades. Wildly popular in the seventies. He was straight and never did anything but solo work, or group work where he wasn't physically touching the other models. I don't remember his doing any hardcore porn but I think he did some softcore straight work. I read an interview with Jim French (aka Rip Colt) in the eighties or early nineties where he was asked who he personally thought who was the most attractive of all the men he had photographed. He answered Stoner (aka Bill Cable).

by Anonymousreply 8507/19/2015

Bill Cable reminds me a bit of Jaxton Wheeler.

I know Elvira did a Playgirl layout with porn star/director/Travolta outer Paul Barresi -- did she also do one with Cable?

I remember when I was 13, I heard that Michael Leon from Days of our Lives was going to be in Playgirl. I just had to get a copy. When it came out I went to the local Chinese owned magazine store and put the issue in the middle of a Starlog and Fangoria magazine. The guy just rang it up and it was mine. He didn't show much but he showed enough to make my 13 year old self very happy.

by Anonymousreply 9306/14/2016

Jim Brown was hot and Christopher George was a shocker. Not a large cock by any means, but he was bold enough to show it. But Peter Lupus was big and thick and he posed with a semi hard-on. This was 1974! And then I remember the special edition of Playgirl naming him Man of the Year with a 12-page blow-up. His cock took up one whole page!

Apparently there was a first set of nude photos taken with Peter Lupus outside in Palm Springs, but it was cold and his cock shriveled up. So, as legend has it, his wife either gave him a blow job or massaged his penis in the set the magazine used to make it rise to the occasion. Man...I wish I had that job!

When I was 14 I used to babysit for my mother's friend who subscribed to Playgirl. The kid was always asleep when I got there. Wasn't sure why I was so excited to thumb through Playgirl but I did. Came across a gorgeous guy naked standing in front of a sculpture. Started running my fingers over the head of my cock and all of a sudden, my whole body exploded. Didn't know what had happened but I think it was one of the best orgasms that I've ever had. My favorite was football player Lou Zivcovich.

According to a Playgirl editor, Don Stroud contacted The magazine and offered to pose nude despite never receiving an invitation to do it. He insisted on posing full-frontal. At the link, there is a black and white full-frontal photo taken for the November 1973 issue which was used in a special issue instead. I wish more actors of that era posed full-frontal for the magazine. Who knows how many others said "yes" if contacted with the opportunity. Johnny Mathis posed full-frontal; the Playgirl photographer was caught off guard by his willingness to get naked, it was so out-of-character. The photos were taken, but never used by the magazine.
