Hef Horner, head of the Playdude Empire, has long printed his magazine in English, Spanish, German, and several other languages, regardless of the fact that most people just look at the pictures. In a press conference at the Playdude Mansion, Hef (clad in silk pajamas, of course) announced that he will now add another language to his collection.
The first Arabic issue of Playdude will be released in June. To keep up with sensibilities and religious strictures in the area, however, it will be the first Playdude or Playchick magazine not to feature nude women or men.
Anne Morris, Miss October of 1988 and Playdude Enterprises Spokeswoman, said at the Press Conference that: "We will feature women and skin, two things that have made us famous. We will not be able to, however, show any T&A or beaver shots at this time because of decency laws there. We can, however, get away with showing titillating views of naked kneecaps, a little bit of chin, and an occasional bit or armpit hair (as long as it is tasteful and not demeaning)."
"We feel that this will be pushing the envelope in the Moslem world and that this will quickly become the most popular magazine publication in the Mid-East."
"Each issue will also feature pictures of female goats, camels, and sheep in provocative poses. Due to the laws there, we can show these animals unclothed. Test issues have shown that these are actually the most popular sections of the magazines. We'll even show sheep from around the world as we've noticed that they really like the foreign girls. Twins are also popular."
"Even our magazine has some standards, however, so we will not show any pictures of little boys in and state of dress or undress, regardless of what the buyers demand. We'll let our competition have this niche of the market."
