Playboy is an American men's lifestyle and entertainment magazine,
it was founded in Chicago in 1953, by Hugh Hefner and his associates,
and funded in part by a $1,000 loan from Hefner's mother;
notable for its centerfolds of nude and semi-nude models (Playmates),
Playboy played an important role in the sexual revolution
and remains one of the world's best-known brands,
having grown into Playboy Enterprises, Inc.,
with a presence in nearly every medium,
in addition to the flagship magazine in the United States,
special nation-specific versions of Playboy are published worldwide

the magazine has a long history of publishing short stories
by notable novelists such as Arthur C. Clarke, Ian Fleming,
Vladimir Nabokov, Saul Bellow, Chuck Palahniuk,
P. G. Wodehouse, Roald Dahl, Haruki Murakami, and Margaret Atwood
with a regular display of full-page color cartoons,
