December of 1953 was when the first issue of Playboy came out.

This was a magazine that was different than anything ever seen before and showed off nude Marilyn Monroe. Not long ago, they tried taking the nudes out of Playboy but realized that the fans just didn't embrace it the same. They ended up adding them back in.

Hugh Hefner was a great man who will be missed by many. You know that Playboy will put out an amazing tribute magazine for him. The magazine is in good hands with Cooper Hefner working there.
