Welcome to Playboy’s 65th anniversary issue—a 232-page celebration of who we were, who we are and how we’re changing. PLAYBOY launched in 1953 to a country booming with postwar prosperity and optimism. Our first issue hit newsstands on the heels of the Kinsey Reports. The sexual revolution of the 1960s was almost a decade away. Playboy was the platform for leading writers, artists and photographers to express themselves with total freedom, the place where sex was never taboo and where life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness were to be enjoyed by all. But the world has changed in unimaginable ways in the 65 years since our first issue. Much that was taboo then is mainstream now. How can PLAYBOY keep pushing boundaries andmake a difference in 2019? By continuing to grow.
