June Playboy to Feature 3D Centerfold

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 43 comments

Hugh Hefner has announced this year's June issue of Playboy will be different to any other issue Playboy Enterprises has ever put out. How so? Well, next month's issue will come with 3D glasses and a 3D centerfold to boot.

Hugh recently revealed to the Associated Press that Playboy is hoping to capitalize on the success of Avatar and other 3D movies by jumping on the 3D bandwagon and offering some 3D content of its own. "What would people most like to see in 3-D?" Playboy's founder asked. "Probably a naked lady."

And that's what we'll get. In just a few weeks, you'll be able to look at Hope Dworaczyk in the nip, in three dimensions.

However, this isn't the first time Playboy has tried to show off a pair of C's in 3D.  Hugh told the AP that he tried to do something similar in the 50's. "I actually signed a photographer to shoot two nude women in 3D in Chicago," Hugh said. However, the idea was soon scrapped when Hef found out how expensive it would be to include the glasses with the magazine. This time, the cost of the glasses will be footed by HBO. HBO wanted to find a way to promote its show 'True Blood' and including glasses with the show's logo on them seemed like a great way to do that.

Though most Playboy fans will probably be of a different mindset, it seems Hugh isn't exactly sold on 3D technology. A man after my own heart, Hugh tells the AP that when he goes to the cinema, he goes to escape real life and in that instance, "2D is fine with me." For those of you who agree, there'll be plenty of 2D pictures Ms. Dworaczyk in the June issue too. Speaking of Dworaczyk, what does she think of all this? "It's kind of like it says on the rearview mirror," she joked. "Things may appear larger."

    You are dead on, The Adult Industry pushed VHS over BetaMAX and Blu-Ray over HD-DVD. Its the simple fact that more movies come out in a year. Seeing how they could shoot a whole porn in days.

    WTF is this reported on at Toms'? WHO CARES about some skinny, bony chick with 2-3hrs of make up on? I see hotter chicks walking in Manhattan on a daily basis Vs these drugged up, gold-digging sluts.
