Playgirl Sails Off to Valhalla Singing ‘YMCA’

Proof that not even porn can survive the current old-media die off, Playgirl bids adieu to the world this week. The outlet, long seen by gay readers as the step on the road to gay porn that follows an International Male subscription, was always a queer friendly place, with Playgirl executives happily quoting their gay readership as somewhere between 30-60%.

The Sword (which noted earlier this week that this is Haze the Editor Week at Queerty), managed to grab a copy of the very last issue of Playgirl ever before everyone else. Why do you care? Because the final centerfold is none other than that gay cowboy from the Village People you haven’t thought about in 35 years!

Michael Stabile writes us:

“His name is Randy Jones and, in the text to the piece, he suggests that he’d like to form a gay biker gang with Lance Bass, Joan Crawford, Rock Hudson and Bill and Hillary Clinton to kick some ass. Wasn’t that the plot of “Wild Hogs”?”

Anyway, so long Playgirl! We’ll always remember that time we picked you up in a Mobil Station in Oklahoma only to discover that apparantley when women look at naked men, they prefer them to pose awkwardly with dead blank eyes. More SFW photos after the jump.

    Let’s not sound so superior. It’s no toil to find some “dead blank eyes” in Morning Goods.

  • Mike

    He reminds me of when Garth Brooks did that god-awful “Chris Gaines” character in the late 90s.

  • ChicagoJimmy

    @dvlaries: Yeah, but they seem to like limp dicks too.

  • butterpantz

    They must have paid Randy in cocktails.

  • Farah

    I think he looks cute!
    Randy’s almost 60 isn’t he?

  • Ahem!

    I wouldn’t mind a roll in the hay, cowboy!He still looks good–hope the pics are not air brushed.

  • GranDiva

    They airbrushed out his Marlboro Man jowls, though!

  • Pragmatist

    I don’t know where some of you guys work, but I wouldn’t characterize those photos as SFW!
