Bachelors and Bunnies

Bachelors and Bunnies For a lot of people, thoughts about the sexual politics of Playboy run along the lines of what Gloria Steinem reportedly once told Hugh Hefner A woman reading Playboy feels a little like a Jew reading a Nazi manual Hefner s magazine celebrates men as swinging bachelors and women as objects of desire ergo, it s sexist.Not so fast, says Carrie Pitzulo With Bachelors and Bunnies, she delves into the history of the magazine to reveal its surprisingly strong record of support for women s rights and the modernization of sexual and gender roles Taking readers behind the scenes of Playboy s heyday, Pitzulo shows how Hefner s own complicated but thoughtful perspective on modern manhood, sexual liberation, and feminism played into debates both in the editorial offices and on the magazine s pages about how Playboy s trademark girl next door appeal could accommodate, acknowledge, and even honor the changing roles and new aspirations of women in postwar America Revealing interviews with Hugh Hefner and his daughter and later Playboy CEO Christie Hefner, as well as with a number of editors and even Playmates, show that even as the magazine continued to present a romanticized notion of gender difference, it again and again demonstrated a commitment to equality and expanded opportunities for women.Offering a surprising new take on a twentieth century icon, Bachelors and Bunnies goes beyond the smoking jacket and the centerfold to uncover an unlikely ally for the feminist cause.

    Excellent book about not only Playboy magazine, but also postwar culture, American consumerism, and shifting gender roles in the 1960s and 1970s You don t even have to have read Playboy to understand them

    I have always been of the opinion that Hugh Hefner is not a male chauvinist pig On the contrary, I found the world offered on Playboy s glossy pages to be much fairer than the reality where women are faced with serious social injustice leading to physical, mental and emotional exploitation This book proves that Playboy isthan a pure male fantasy where women are merely seen as sexual objects, but equal to men in every respect Centerfo...
