Hugh Hefner first published "Playboy" magazine in 1953. Since then, a number of women, including many celebrities (such as Marilyn Monroe and Drew Barrymore), have posed for "Playboy" pictorials. Additionally, "Playboy" has published the stories and poems of many famous writers, such as Ian Fleming and Vladimir Nabokov. "Playboy" has also regularly featured interviews with such diverse public figures as Dr. Martin Luther King, Yasser Arafat and Ayn Rand. While "Playboy" makes some of these features available on its website, you might need to purchase back issues of the magazine to find some content.
