Dworaczyk - doesn't he write for PC magazine?
The June issue of Playboy will feature added substance in the form of 3D centerfold Hope Dworaczyk - a first for the men's mag, which is trying to cash in on the success of Avatar and the like. The magazine's founder Hugh Hefner reportedly asked: "What would people most like to see in 3D?" "Probably a naked lady," came his own …
The guy writing "Everything is crap" columns for PC Mag is called Dvorak. I recently happened to land at one of them. Based on the accompanying mugshot, I predict that showing him naked on a centerfold will be a certain method to lower Playboy (or even Playmate) sales to zero with a single issue.
"He said: "People want things that last and have meaning. This particular picture is one example of how books and magazines are different. You can hold it in your hands, save them, and as dad used to, put them under the mattress.""
I never, ever want to get that mental image again.

I know you're not going to pretend that you're publishing this because of the tech angle. Nonetheless, it wouldn't have hurt to include some tech information: how exactly are they going to print a 3D image on a flat paper centerfold? I can think of some optical illusion techniques, but none of them deservers to be called 3D.
Was out cycling in the middle of the Norfolk fens the other day, and found an acceptably untarnished jazz mag on the verge. Wasn't very exciting though. Odd that they still need to censor certain, shall we say, penetrative acts.
Anonymous - don't want people to know I was out cycling in Norfolk.
At (Public) school we were looking for a hiding place for contraband booze. We lifted a floorboard and found a small stash of magazines, judging from the decor, scanties, appearance of the ladies featured I guess 1920/30s vintage. They were mostly B&W but one was 2 colour printing and with 3D specs we were able to delight in the full experience. The extent of airbrushing meant that when we subsequently encountered real women we were surprised to find they had nipples and pubic hair - now I understand the latter confusion could still apply in some cases, however nowadays (I'm reliably informed) the absence of pubic hair reveals details not disclosed in our day.
I think even then (1960s) our contemporary smutty mags were still constrained from showing nipples (etc).
