Playboy vs Penthouse.  There will be a few different iterations of Battle of the Centerfolds.  One will be the standard Playboy vs Penthouse like this post.  Another is Playboy USA vs Playboy France, Germany, Philippines, Mexico, etc.  There could be as many as 15 different playboy editions competing depending on the year.  There will be the same theme only with Penthouse international editions – Penthouse USA vs Penthouse Australia, Spain, Thai, etc.  Then there will be Nudie Magazine Beauty Contest which is basically Battle of the Centerfolds only the lesser known magazines like Hustler, Cavalier(UK), Chic, Lui(French), Playmen(Spain), High Society, etc.  I want this to be the premier blog for vintage nudes from magazines as well as from pop culture like TV, Beauty Pageants like Miss America, and even Girls Gone Wild, etc.  Whatever list I can come up with that seems interesting.  And as always viewers may make a comment and/or vote for your favorites at the poll at the bottom of the post.

There will always be more info about the Playboy Playmate than any other.  Just the way it is.  Try not to let that sway your vote.
