Have to go with jim brown. Chris atkins a close second. Jim browns masculinity, body and cock were luscious. Chris is really hot too but he was pretty skinny with a small dick. Surprised dan pastorini not in the poll. He only showed his ass and body but i would have sucked and ate the hell out of him just like jim and chris. All three are beautiful men but only chris and jim only showed celebrity cock in playgirl.

Thanks for a poll long, long overdue. Somebody is skewing this poll away from Jim Brown, the greatest NFL player of all time. Everyone else dwarfs completely by comparison. Fabian contorted to hide it, and Chris Atkins was never a centerfold. What a pity that Jim Brown had to be a one in a billion, once in a lifetime occurrence. Even with sexual freedom, gay liberation, Obama, Huffington :Post, msnbc, etc.. it would never happen today.

according to imdb: He died of heart failure, which was probably caused by on by an overdose of pain medication and pneumonia. He also had cocaine in his system at the time of his death.
I do remember once doing a paper on Aids for school and I had some People magazine article or something like that about Hollywood's reaction to AIDS. Matuszak was quoted about how he was storing up his own blood in case he ever needed a transfusion. He sounded kind of homophobic to my young ear but I guess he could have been overcompensating.

Maybe if Peter Lupus had seen Playgirl at that time, he would have realized that the celebrities posing either hid their cocks or only showed a sliver of them. His centerfold was unprecedented (and outstanding in my opinion). Not only did he show full frontal, he actually posed with a semi erection on the shot with his red bathrobe open. and these were the days when the centerfolds were four page spreads.
When Lupus was named Man of the Year, a special edition of Playgirl actually showcased his cock on one fully page. As I am writing this now, I am getting hard. Man...was that something.

And also he didn't have a typical solo centerfold in Playgirl but a boy/girl layout with a then unknown Cassandra Peterson (aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark). He later had a part in her Mistress of the Dark movie from 1988. I wonder if they were friends or fuck buddies?

One of Bill Cable's biggest claims to fame was being one of the very most popular Colt models in the early decades. Wildly popular in the seventies. He was straight and never did anything but solo work, or group work where he wasn't physically touching the other models. I don't remember his doing any hardcore porn but I think he did some softcore straight work. I read an interview with Jim French (aka Rip Colt) in the eighties or early nineties where he was asked who he personally thought who was the most attractive of all the men he had photographed. He answered Stoner (aka Bill Cable).

According to a Playgirl editor, Don Stroud contacted The magazine and offered to pose nude despite never receiving an invitation to do it. He insisted on posing full-frontal. At the link, there is a black and white full-frontal photo taken for the November 1973 issue which was used in a special issue instead. I wish more actors of that era posed full-frontal for the magazine. Who knows how many others said "yes" if contacted with the opportunity. Johnny Mathis posed full-frontal; the Playgirl photographer was caught off guard by his willingness to get naked, it was so out-of-character. The photos were taken, but never used by the magazine.

R123, I would never have thought Johnny Mathis would be willing to do that. He was a star athlete, and had an athletic scholarship at San Francisco State University. He was invited to try out for the US Olympic Team, but had to choose between his first recording and the tryouts, and so did the recording. I've always loved the guy, and thought he was just so beautiful and classy, and I know he had a nice body back then, but somehow managed to never show it.
Of the celebrity centerfolds, I think I'd go with Christopher George.
Of any Playgirl photo (not necessarily a celebrity centerfold) it would be Bill Cable, followed by Brian Buzzini. At the time Brian posed, it was still rare for the models to pose with hard-ons (although there were some notable exceptions).

I actually think it could work if they can get male “celebrities” to pose. That was the only reason for buying the magazine once gay porn became easily accessible. To see your favourite man-meat like Chris Atkins in the buff between the pages of a magazine. And I think they have a better shot of convincing B-listers in this InstaHo and gender-blurred age. (Trevor Donovan are you listening?) Not as much stigma involved when huge stars like Bieber are constantly flashing their cock and ass all over the internet.

I haven't gone through all the posts, but where is Burt Reynolds? Wasn't he the first?
The one I wish would have posed in his best years was Olympic champ speed skater Eric Heiden. OMG, those thighs!

R270 Burt Reynolds posed for Cosmopolitan, not Playgirl. His centrefold is probably the most famous beefcake photo ever taken, but I’ve always found it pretty lame. I much prefer the butt-shots he put out around the same time. THOSE I’ve gotten off to several times!

Okay people you’ve gotten off course here. This thread is about favourite celebrity Playgirl layouts, not your favourite random dude who posed.

R267 He posed as Richard Lee Baney.

What do you think the percentage was of male vs. female buyers/subscribers of Playgirl back in it’s heyday? The most honest account from PG executives I’ve heard is 60% female/40 % male. I call bullshit. More like 75% male/25 female. Playgirl would never have lasted as long as it did without it’s gay consumers. Fact.

I remember ladies working in offices in the 80s and 90s sneaking a peek at a Playgirl brought in by one of them and dishing about the men inside. They talked about the models' hair, faces, chests, dick sizes, bulbous heads, bushes, balls, asses... We men humored them. I meant multiple offices where I worked to build my career. They wouldn't be able to do that today.
I was still scared to buy a Playgirl, fearing someone I knew would see me buying it. I don't know how many men I can speak for, but it certainly affected the reported percentage of men looking at the magazine. By the mid-90s, I felt confident enough to buy a Playgirl every month at Borders bookstores.

Jean-Paul Vignon was a French/Italian actor and singer who appeared on American TV, movies and music charts. He sang at the Miss Universe Pageant in 1967 and was the centerfold in the December 1973 issue of Playgirl. You have to be an eldergay to remember him.

R275 I think they based those stats more on subscription numbers. Someone who worked at Playgirl back in the day basically said that they would get a lot of subscriptions with initials only for first names, like R. Smith. I bet 90% of those were from closeted gay men.

R266, try looking for Richard Lee Baney. Yep, he's nude in his pics.

Dick Baney pitched for the Cincinnati Reds when I was a teenager. I thought he was hot back then. You can imagine my reaction when I saw him full-frontal... I didn't expect he would show everything off. Bold, but I give him credit; other athletes appeared in Playgirl, and most of them showed a bit of bush, but that was it.

Don Williams was a professional football player, but not in the NFL. Another full-frontal athlete to go with Jim Brown and Richard Lee Baney.

I’ve still got the original Atkins issue from 1982. Still jerk off to it.

I still love Playgirl as an artifact from another time. In a strange way it perfectly mirrored the gay experience in the USA from that time to the present. Started off closeted and ended up…well, out and proud but oddly splintered and not really knowing what it wants.
And more than a bit schizoid. Everyone knows that Playgirl survived as long as it did because of closeted gay men who bought it to jerk off to. Yet it was marketed rather stridently and defiantly as Entertainment For Women. Only in America!

I used to buy Playgirl AND Playboy. Was I a closet bi? Nah. I was just fascinated by the celebs that would pose nude for both.

As an ass man, I loved when Playgirl put out the Buns/Men’s Cheeks special issues. Those were my go to j/o favourites!

What about Dirk Shafer? He was hot.

Dirk Shafer became a celebrity after the centerfold was published. He wrote, directed and starred in a "mock"umentary about his time as Playgirl's Man of the Year. That was the name of the film, "Man of the Year".
