Playboy has contracted Terry Richardson to photograph an entire issue of their magazine. Playboy probably took this unusual step because Richardson is trending big in the news and their magazine business is more desperate than fourteen dudes standing around a keg in a South Bend winter talking about who gets more pussy. Playboy’s also letting the guy who melted his kid in the Home Depot parking lot right an op ed about Benghazi. Anyone who knows basic photography can take a photograph of a naked woman so in the field of cheesecake it becomes necessary to distinguish yourself in the marketplace of ideas involving tits and ass. Terry Richardson has achieved notoriety by racking up sexual assault allegations and publishing photos of himself jizzing on models. His primary talent is being related to his famous dad and being friends with the even more famous Lady Gaga. You may see this Playboy gig as a man being rewarded for very bad behavior. And you would be correct. You could protest Playboy and people might care, if you could make it 1965 again.
