Playboy’s 10 Sexiest Playmate Winners of All Time

Playboy, if you don’t already know is the biggest men’s magazine of all time.

Founded by Hugh Hefner in 1953, the magazine depicts women in nude and semi-nude pictorials. The magazine clearly does not discriminate, featuring women of all (legal!) ages and ethnicities. While many of them seem to have big busts, small waists and large hips, I am sure there is something in there for everyone.

The magazine is aimed at the 18–35 male demographic and regularly has comics, interview pieces on celebrities, information on cars, travelling and gadgets. Essentially, it’s the ultimate men’s magazine.

Playboy has played a massive role in the sexual revolution and has been remarkably reliable. Regardless of what has been going on in the world, or in the company itself, Playboy has always promised to issue a magazine every month. It was a safe haven and its proven continuity makes it easy to see why they have such a large following.

Not only that, but the fact that women were either nude or semi-nude back in 1953 was a craze in itself and helped add to the company’s popularity. Playboy was the first to have women to bare it all and you know what? It made these women feel good about themselves.

Playboy having issued a new magazine every month for the past 60 odd years, and as a result that means that there are 12 gorgeous women who get the honor of being on the cover. At the end of the year, the company decides on 1 lucky winner of the year that is considered the best looking, most desirable and popular among the other 11 women who appeared on the cover in that calendar year.

These lucky winners are called the “Playmate of the Year” and they receive a full cash bonus, huge media attention and have essentially secured their spot in the world, whether in lingerie, active wear or women’s fashion modelling. Some even go on to act in TV shows and films. Some even have their own company!

Below are 10 of the sexiest Playmates of the Year!

You guys are in for a treat to say the least, if you think number 10 is good looking, just keep going!
