According to an Associated Press exclusive story, Playboy readers who can only imagine what it would look like if a nude centerfold jumped right off the page are getting new specs to help them see into Hef’s world.


The magazine’s June edition hits newsstands Friday equipped with 3-D glasses. Now the toy that has kids dodging dragons, meatballs and tall blue aliens at the movies will help adults focus on what is, at first glance, a very blurry Playmate of the Year.


“What would people most like to see in 3-D?” asked Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. “Probably a naked lady.”


Hefner makes no secret of hoping to capitalize on the popularity of 3-D movies such as “Avatar” and “How to Train Your Dragon,” even as he makes no secret of not quite getting what all the fuss is about.


“I’m not a huge enthusiast of 3-D,” he said in a telephone interview. “I leave real life to go to the movies and 2-D is fine with me.”
Playboy hopes that the issue featuring centerfold Hope Dworaczyk in 3-D also reminds people that for all the infatuation with the Internet, there is nothing quite like having a magazine in your hands.


“People want things that last and have meaning,” he said.
The thought hadn’t occurred to Hefner. But, now that you mention it:
“This particular picture is one example of how books and magazines are different (than computer images),” he said. “You can hold it in your hands, save them, and as Dad used to, put them under the mattress.”
