My daughter wants to model for Playboy *nsfw*

Where does she work? We just moved to the Boston area.

btw, does she play vids?

It would be weird to have a daughter in Playboy. I think as a Dad you try to prevent that stuff from happening, but ... I don't know. I mean it's not that bad, but I think it does have long reaching consequences. You're going to get a label from it whether you like it or not and it will follow you around for life. Boys might be clicking on Playboy the next 20 years and she might pop up in a free pic. And probably not difficult for the pic to make its way across the entire internet. And they probably can still throw her pic on the web even if she doesn't get big bucks from being in the magazine. Careful what you sign. And whereever she works there might be whispers. She's the "playboy" girl. It can help you get jobs, but not sure she wants jobs because she's hot or not.

Then again Playboy isn't as big as it was. Hef's daughter resigned not too long ago as the CEO. And Playboy's stock is at an all-time low. Too much free Porn out there.

Part of me says it's an easy way out. The glamorous & money rich for the few trail. I'll have to ask my wife what she thinks. But I think it's probably how she handles it that counts the most. She's taking off her clothes so men can oogle her. That's what she would be getting paid for in Playboy.

I'm puzzled as to why you'd see it as negative? If she doesn't allow herself to get exploited and takes care of her money IMHO there's no difference between nude modeling, modeling in a swimsuit, becoming a singer and being a sex symbol. This is our society and thankfully we have the freedom to do as we please. I wish her luck.

That says more about our puritanical society, IMHO.

That would be nice but people will hold this against her. When she gets her first REAL job, and if someone finds nude pictures of her, that is going to matter. It would be nice if small stuff like that didn't but it does. I have no problem if she chooses to do it but I hope she thinks long and hard about her future and where she'd like to be.

Oh, and if my daughter ever poses nude, any of you pervs who see it are in trouble. You're not notice!!!

She's been working at her first REAL job for nearly a year now. Her stepdad spent his life in the hospitality industry, and that's what she enjoys. She's even been making plans to open her own restaurant.

One of the things i've learned is that beautiful women aren't hard to come by, beautiful women willing to exploit their talent for anything other than dragging men around by their uhhh.... man parts, are different though. You should be glad that she's beautiful and that she is smart enough to use it to make her money in a safe way. Starting at Playboy doesn't lead down, only up.

It was, uh... Odd, to arrive in this thread after reading Elysiums "Sins of a Gaming Father" article, to say the least.

Playboy didn't happen to be on my list of sordid things hidden between the mattress and the box spring, but from the conversation I gather it's one of the "softer" magazines, right? Like topless and posed seductively but not DOING anything?

Assuming that's the case, pshaw. As long as she steers clear of undesirable offers and the "underbelly" of the modeling scene, it's only going to impact the stuffiest of jobs, or ones that involve working with kids. Being featured in that way almost sounds like more of an advantage for the owner of a bar or restaurant.

If it were my daughter I'm guessing I'd probably be pretty freaked out, but it's not like I even have kids so who knows.

If only Freud were still alive, I wonder what he'd say.

Indeed. Anybody that would judge her for this isn't worth her time.

"Yeah, enjoy that magazine. It's a good one. My daughter is the centerfold."

I would high five the man. Possibly offer beer.

Yeah. A high five and a "You're apparantly awesome at procreation. You should do it more!" would probably be about the most subtle I could manage.

Indeed. Anybody that would judge her for this isn't worth her time.

The fact that so many in our society get more worked up over seeing naked people than seeing horrific acts of violence speaks volumes about America. One nipple slips out on TV and it's the end of Western civilization.

People are naked under their clothes. It's no big deal. She chooses to profit from a rather amusing evolutionary facet of humanity (OOGABA, you may have heard of it...) by being modeling nude or semi-nude.

Probably something about how cocaine is awesome.

That photo has to go on your desk at work.

So, is it considered rude to go hunting on the internet for the "rest" of the photos?

Indeed. I've been thinking about this for some time now, mostly in regards to prostitution, but the same concept applies here.

A great many of us are, in some way, selling our physical attributes. For some of us, we sell our brain power (i.e. a superb neuronal arrangement) to others in exchange for cash. Athletes sell their superior speed, reaction times, and stamina in exchange for cash. Radio announcers sell their voices, writers and artists sell their perceptions, and models sell their physiques as something on which to hang a product. So why should sex or nudity be regarded any differently? A Playboy model is using her physique for the pleasure of the observing public just as surely as an athlete is. When Beckham stripped his shirt off at the end of a football game, it wasn't because he suddenly got too hot.

I'm not sure that one can objectively (i.e. outside of religious beliefs) justify looking down on nude modelling in a society in which we're all whoring ourselves out in one way or another.

Exactly. It's a job like any other.

Pretty sure all male goodjers have wives/girlfriends/exes who were models or gathered lots of male attention via some form of media. Any stories to share?

FTFY

Badken, I'm a little late to this party, but congrats to your daughter. The simple fact that she is doing something that is exciting and interesting for her and not being forced to do something that is anything less than her ambitions is something to be cherished.

You know, at least she's not working a pole somewhere. I'm pretty sure that's exactly where I'd try (and likely fail) to draw the line with a daughter of mine.

Again, that depends on the job. I understand some of you guys are corporate types who are afraid of your own shadow for fear of professional repurcussions, but it's really not like that in most of the world. She's not becoming a porn star, or appearing on Girls Gone Wild. Attractive women tend to have a leg up in the job market, just like attractive men. You're also assuming that this is something that she will want to hide, rather than something that she treats as a badge of honor. It's Playboy. It's the pinnacle of the American sex industry, not the gutter.

Seconded.

Oh wait. You were talking about BadKen's desk, weren't you. sh*t.

CANCEL PRINT! CANCEL PRINT!

With regards to our puritanical society: There was a time when the naked human body was considered art by many. Actually, it still is. Many of our greatest works of art are nudes. And not just women - Michelangelo's David is probably the most famous and celebrated sculpture in history. His goods are on display.

A number of people have used the word "porn" in this thread, and I think that's pretty lame. I'm not saying that Hugh Hefner is Michelangelo, but he's a far cry from Ron Jeremy. Nude modelling, big deal. Lighten up.

You wouldn't happen to be using a networked printer, would you?

This thread has uncomfortably lurched from confusion to /b/ to confusion to P&C with no intent of stopping.

Exactly. I've worked with more than one woman who had done modelling (nude and otherwise) in their past, or still did on the side. They were totally open about it and people just thought it was cool. Of course I work in the entertainment industry so we're not exactly stuffy types.

One of my little sister's childhood friends posed for Playboy a couple years back, and as far as I know it was a positive experience for her. Although I have to admit it was a little weird running across those photos online, since I hadn't seen her since she was like 12. She grew up!

Congrats to your daughter BadKen! It's awesome that you can be supportive about this.

Fixed, but only because I miss the Stan version.

Something like this might even be a boon (if anything) if she continues to work in the hospitality industry. With her management experience, if she ever finished the MBA, she could easily be running her own place some day, maybe even her own chain of places.

I know this has got to be weird for you, but congratulations, and best wishes to you and your daughter!

I'm a little late in here, but creds to you BadKen for being so supportive of her. I know my father wouldn't handle it well if my sister went for any modeling, let alone Playboy. Personally I think you should be proud of her. Not that many people get the chance to model for something as big and popular as Playboy. Be glad she's not going in front of the camera for some backdoor photographer with a single lousy website, or even worse: grinding the pole down by the truckstop in front of a 400lbs man named Bubba.

I got distracted by the picture. What were we talking about? Oh yeah.

I'm wondering about this as well.

Wasn't this an episode of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire"?

More power to her.
