This is true of course, but that's not the objection mainstream feminism has to Playboy.
The main objection is that it evaluates women on their looks, rather than their accomplishments or talents. It tries to be serious about it, which is just weird. Imagine if Time decided to throw in some nudes of Elon Musk, along side his interview... Airbrushed of course.
I could not care less. If Elon wants to expose his ding dong in Hong Kong, he can have at it. Keep away fmor Kids, and let women who want nothing to do with it alone, and its a big Meh.
Or if male actors did it to prove they were still hot enough to get roles at 30.
It's not puritanical, it's an issue with treating women differently and to a lesser extent using their bodies to sell magazines which perpetuates the idea that the female body is a commodity.
If I might, I'll give a try at an explanation. There are animals in the world where one of the genders is relatively plain, and the other is well adorned. In some of the birds, the female chooses her mate by their displays. The birds of paradise are a good example some of them are strikingly beautiful. And the all time king of this embellishment is the Prarie Chicken, whose hilarious looking displays and dancing cracks me up every time. But if he wants to mate he's gotta do it, as the female is the one who makes the choice, and he has to beg her.
But let's get back to the decoration. I'm going to generalize here. In humans the most attractive is without question, the female. Men are all lumpy and bumpy and seriously prone to protruding bellies, and the females are the beauties, with pretty nice symmetry, and normally much better looking faces. And they seem to like to embellish themselves as well with jewelry and makeup.
My mother, who was as straightlaced a catholic as you can get, enjoyed looking at the naked women in Playboy. As she said - "Women are just better looking than men, and I like looking at them." And it wasn't some repressed lesbian thing either. My wife has no objection to looking at naked people, although she laughs at the guys sometimes.
And do you know what the most common porn for straight women to look at is? Woman on woman porn. You can google that. text, not the actual porn. Okay, you can google that too if ya like.
Women are just in general, a lot more pleasant to look at. Its also why so many artists work with the female nude.
And as outraged as some ladies get about it, good luck with trying to change millions of years of evolution. Though it might be funny to see in a million years, guys doing a dance for a chance to make with a woman - although I think that males won't exist in a few hundred years, as human parthenogenesis will probably give rise to an all female humanity. We've already produced human embryos through parthenogenesis, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... so a major problem for women is going to go away in the not too distant future.
