Playboy Ad Features Naked Women Forming A Bunny Shape

There’s little more that I can say to describe this ad, so I’ll just jump to how it makes me feel. Usually I like Playboy a lot. I like the photos, the articles, and the idea of women not feeling ashamed of their naked bodies  (although of course, the magazine could deign to offer a more diverse representation of beauty).

But this ad, honestly, it makes me uncomfortable. It’s because the women in it look like ants. And I just don’t like that.

      It kind of grosses me out. It’s a weird cluster of things that I want to take a broom to and spread about.

      Grossssssssssss it kinda looks like the wall in the “house of pain” in Jeepers Creepers :S

        YES! I was thinking that this reminded me of something horribly creepy and Jeepers Creepers is it!

        This also kind of reminds me of like…a bucket of worms or something, I keep expecting them to start squirming all over the place and it makes me horribly uncomfortable.

      Every single one of these women is white.

      That’s exactly it. They look like “things” not people. These women have been objectified to provide an “aesthetically pleasing” image to the primary consumers (straight, white males).

      Gross. Just gross.

      Plus shitty art direction and, as Rebecca pointed out, whitewashed.

      I love it. It is beautiful, human, simple, clean, and SO Playboy. I reckon I feel like everyone should express themselves and the way Hugh is expressing himself through his brand right here happens to work really, really well IMHO.

      Author of the photo is polish photographer Marcin Wasiolka. That was made for contest Fotoerotika 2012 and got grand prix

      Did anyone notice that almost all of the women are… Ahem, pleasing themselves?
