Playboy to feature 3-D centerfold

Playboy readers are going to need glasses for a close look at the upcoming issue of the magazine — 3-D glasses.

The centerfold picture in the June edition of Playboy will be in 3-D, Playboy spokesperson Theresa Hennessey said on Tuesday.

“It’s definitely eye-popping,” Hennessey said of the 3-D centerfold featuring 2010 Playmate of the Year Hope Dworacyzk.

“There’s a wine glass that she’s holding and when you stand back with the glasses on that comes right out at you,” the spokesperson told Agence-France Presse. “You really feel like you’re, so to speak, in the pictorial with her.”

A pair of 3-D glasses like those that helped the film Avatar shatter box office records will be included with the issue of the magazine which hits United States newsstands on Friday.

Playboy’s first 3-D centerfold comes about six months after the magazine ran a photo spread featuring a cartoon character — a scantily clad Marge Simpson from the hit television show The Simpsons.

“We’re constantly trying to do new creative, innovative things to engage our readers,” Hennessey said. “But I don’t think we’ll be having 3-D centerfolds in every issue.”

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner said he “wanted to create a 3-D pictorial for the very first issue of Playboy, but didn’t have enough money to include the 3-D glasses.

“I think Playboy fans will enjoy seeing our Playmate of the Year’s true form,” Hefner added in a statement. — AFP
