Playmates Then and Now: Does Bunny Beauty Stand the Test of Time?

Playmates Then and Now: Beauty Stands the Test of Time | NextTribe

With Hef’s death, the age of centerfolds and women in bunny outfits is officially over, though some might say if went on life support decades ago.

Those of us who grew up seeing Hugh Hefner cavorting in his pj’s on TV and ads for the Playboy Club around town may not be in mourning; there was such a current of sexism and so much unabashed objectification of women to the “Playboy Empire.”

But some women are probably feeling a mite sad: those who modeled for the mag back in the day. Recently, some of the Playmates recreated their iconic shoots, decades later. Take a peek Playmates then and now here.

Sure, we celebrate an appreciation of female beauty over the age of 25 (something men’s magazines aren’t exactly known for). NextTribe is all in on that! But we can’t help but think when it’s under the auspices of the leering Playboy brand, it’s just not a good thing.

Tell us how you feel about seeing these Playmates then and now covers—we want to know!
