1970s Playboy Playmates

1970s Playboy Centerfolds

1970 is considered by some to be Playboy’s Golden decade. There was a new awakening of sexuality around the world. Anti-pornography laws had been relaxed and removed. All of the known STDs were treatable by medicine, and AIDS was still a decade away. All of this resulted in large numbers of sexually liberated women who saw nothing wrong with posing naked for a men’s magazine.

1970s P

Miss March 1973 – Bonnie Large

The magazine itself broke new barriers. Pubic hair was shown for the first time in this decade. Twins were Playmates both together and separately. First full frontal nudity was shown. All of these firsts shaped the magazine into what it is today.
