Playgirl Magazine Pays You More If You Have a Boner

Today’s installment of “things I didn’t need to learn before 10 AM” is the fact that Playgirl magazine offered Rob Kardashian $45K to pose for them, with another $15K if he posed while hard. That’s right, ladies: your gentleman’s erection is worth a total of $60,000 – but only if he’s marginally famous because of being related to someone who made a sex tape. On the other hand, if a guy is marginally famous for having been on a past-its-prime reality show, like The Real World: Hollywood‘s Joey Kovar, his penis is only worth $20,000. Kovar, who also appeared on the last season of Celebrity Rehab and was basically a nonentity, accepted the offer. There’s no word on whether he got extra for having a boner or not.

So, fun story time! When Playgirl magazine shut down, they did a rebrand of their Playgirl.com website. They painted a van hot pink with pictures of the half-naked centerfolds all over it. Whoever drove the van around New York evidently lived very near my old apartment in Brooklyn, because the van was always parked on my block. It was a really great landmark to use when giving people directions to my place, and it also made for an amusing story when my parents came to visit and wanted to know what the hell was wrong with my neighbors.
