Examples of Playboy in a Sentence

  1. Nina Daniele:

    As a woman, we all see flaws within ourselves and it’s important to embrace them, this is who I am. If you do n’t like it, that’s not really my problem … Playboy has never objectified women. It has only held them on the highest of pedestals. It’s given us a place and a platform to speak our mind. We feel we’re at home with ourselves. We have a place in a world that sometimes does n’t give us what we deserve … I do n’t think Playboy objectifies women.

  2. Kendra Wilkinson:

    Holly, you can tell, had this ulterior motive every minute being at the Mansion, and that motive was -- it was clear as day -- she wanted Hef's kids, she wanted a piece of Playboy and she wanted to marry Hef for, obviously, his will.

  3. Denise Richards:

    Lots of negative comments on my social this past week. I have to say, I wish I had the confidence my 18 yr old daughter has. And I also can't be judgmental of her choices, i did Wild Things Playboy, quite frankly her father shouldn't be either.

  4. Eric Schiffer:

    There are these incoming missiles from many who are damaging the brand in ways that are not catastrophic but will affect brand perception in the short run, playboy has been dealing with this reckless war from former Playmates, and those who desperately wanted to be in his inner circle because of all the benefits and accoutrements and attention and glamour. The challenge is we’re at a time when Generation Z and millennials are far more sensitive about issues about equality and how people are treated, and especially how males conduct themselves.

  5. Derek Hudson:

    How do they break apart from [Hefner]? What do they do? We’ve seen some of this commentary in their statements, but still, advertisers seeing these accusations think of Hefner whenever the term Playboy is brought up. They’re synonymous. At some point, they’re really going to have to do a hard break for Hefner.
