  1. Playgirl

    Playgirl is a print quarterly pornographic magazine published in the United States that is marketed mainly to heterosexual women, but has also gained a considerable gay following. It features general interest articles, lifestyle and celebrity news, in addition to semi-nude or fully nude men. The magazine was founded in 1973 during the height of the feminist movement as a response to erotic men's magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse that featured similar photos of women. From March 2009 to February 2010, it appeared only online. The magazine returned to print with its March 2010 issue. Playgirl is published by New York City-based company Blue Horizon Media, which also publishes High Society, Celebrity Skin, Hawk, Chéri and a number of other hardcore pornographic magazines. The magazine had been published earlier by Drake Publishers. Crescent was charged in 2000 by the Federal Trade Commission with over 180 million dollars of online credit card fraud, much of which was conducted on the Playgirl Magazine site. All Crescent/Blue Horizon titles, including Playgirl, were prevented from conducting any business on the web for five years. Then-president Bruce Chew was subsequently indicted, along with several prominent members of the Gambino crime family.
