My Favorite Playboy Covers: Barbie Benton

Here's another one of my favorite Playboy covers. I've always had a thing for Barbie Benton. She had a long term relationship with Hugh Hefner. He's one lucky devil. There was definitely something special between her and Hef. I find this cover incredibly sexy. I really love that she's got tan lines. I hope you enjoy this cover.

I find it always funny to see how the bikini in this case the slip has changed over the years from that kind on the cover to the present modern ones! LOL

Hey Mirko. Thanks for the comments. Yeah, there have been changes through the years. There was something though really sexy about the ones back then. Cheers!

She's got a real pixie look about her

Keith said...

Yeah, she definitely does have that.

I think Barbie Benton is one of a handful of Playmates I can still remember. I think some of the old covers and interiors are as sexy or more so than the new ones. in fact, I have not looked through a Playboy in over 5 years. Wow. I saw some of the newer centerfolds on a site but I do not think they come close to the Playmates of the 70's and early 80's. What is the shaving fetish all about!!! When is that going to end?

Hey Bill. Thanks for the comments. I'm not a big fan of the modern Playboy mag. It's essentially the epitome of what I can't stand in today's entertainment. I love these classic issues of the mag. The girls back in this era were so much sexier. One thing is that they were natural. They weren't all fake and plastic. These were really pretty girls. They weren't airbrushed. I'm no fan of the shaving craze of today. I love how girls back in that era went. Great comments. Thanks again.

Ain't That Just the Way... Barbie 1976.

Always loved Barbi's look but I kind of found her too gosh-darn cute to really be sexy, y'know? I saw her just recently on something with Hef's GIRLS NEXT DOOR and even after more than 30 years, she still looks beautiful and better--to me anyway--than either of the three blondes!
BTW-She also starred in the worst movie I ever saw--X-RAY!

Keith said...

Hey Sid. Thanks for the comments. I plan to post more Barbie in the future.

Keith said...

Hey Booksteve. Thanks for the comments. It was nice hearing from you. I totally know what you mean. I found her hot. She was more cute than a sexpot. She reminded me of the girl next door. She's the real girl next door, not long the ones Hef has had around him these days. Barbie still looks great. Thanks again. Stop by my blog anytime.

She is still beautiful. I saw her on the "Girls Next Door." She runs rings around those three fake bimbos that Hugh Hefner was with at the time.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. I totally agree with you. Thanks for the comments. Cheers!

Thanks for posting this. Love this cover. She was a looker for sure.

Keith said...

Hey Mike. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the cover. Cheers!
