Playboy: The Art of Beauty, is an auction that features 17 famous original and naughty illustrations from the pages of the magazine over the decades—a Playboy collector’s dream. Among the featured artists are Harvey Kurtzman (Fannie Annie in the first photo), Alberto Vargas, Phil Interlandi and Buck Brown.
When Hugh Hefner first launched Playboy Magazine in 1953, it stirred controversy, and still does today. Many on the religious right and extreme feminists are opposed to it. They see Hefner as a pervert who exploits women, rather than a man who truly takes delight in the female form.
Playboy Magazine has also caused many family feuds over the years between husbands and wives, and horrified moms when they found one or two stashed under the beds of their sons—that will not end any time soon.
Whether you love Playboy for eye candy or for the articles (yeah, right), it is here to stay. That said, enjoy the 18 Playboy stories below.
