Playboy for Indonesians: midriffs! thighs! cleavage!

Yet it's still condemned as "moral terrorism."

I won't be converting any time soon. This should not be surprising. These same folks regard freedom of speech as political terrorism too and issue death fatwas against people who publish cartoons of mohammed.

I can't find the link, but at one point, in blogging about this, I read an article which talked about the brisk street business in porn magazines--real ones--in Indonesia. So this is really very silly indeed, given the content of the version of Playboy being distributed.

Just curious, after looking at that cover: What the heck does "Always Happy Early" mean? I mean, it's not the sort of article "tease" that really makes you want to open up a magazine, and yet, it sort of does just because it's so ... hmmm ... oblique? Bland? Weird?

Clothed?

"It's sinful to read Playboy if there's no nudity."

Meaning it's not sinful, as long as there is nudity? What religion does this guy belong to? I'd consider signing up.

word verification: Qwaco. "A duck in serious need of psychiatric counseling".

reader_iam, I think the meaning of "Always Happy Early" is that if you buy the magazine, you'll be happier earlier than those who don't.

Promotion manager Avianto Nugroho said: "Let the people look at it and see what they think, hopefully they will accept it. If there are demonstrations, we will try to meet their demands."

Is that really the message the publisher of anything wants to send?

or maybe "Always Happy Early" just means that covergirl Andhara Early likes to smile...
