You Can Now Get Classic Playboy Centerfolds As NFTs

By far the most iconic adult magazine in the world – Playboy, has announced yesterday that they will be launching digital collectibles in the form of blockchain-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs), through a partnership with Nifty Gateway.

Since Playboy has stopped their print publications back in 2020, they have actually flown under the radar for quite a while but that ends now as they intend to dig deep into their archives of over 67 years in an attempt to bring to life the art of vintage pornography by selling them as crypto collectibles.

Through the introduction of their content as NFTs, Playboy also intends to support emerging and underrepresented artists entering the NFT art community. It has been confirmed that the first Playboy NFT will feature the artwork of Mike “Slimesunday” Parisella who was also a Playboy print collaborator famous for his erotic collage-style ‘artwork’.

The porno powerhouse also announced that they will be collaborating with 3D artist Blake Kathryn who is actually a very established creator in the NFT crypto art space. Playboy’s announcement hints that their long-term plans are to use classic imagery from world renown artists such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Keith Haring, and Andy Warhol combined with their own ‘art’ as a means to produce these NFT’s.
