A BRIEF DRAFT ANALYSISOF
‘CHILD CENTERFOLDS & CHILD PLAYMATES’
“CHILD TO ADULT STRIP TEASE”
THE PLAYMATE DATA SHEET “I. BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
The following graphs and data address Playboy’s girl ‘child playmates’ in random yearsJuly 1977 to 1993. The findings reflect Playboy’s systemic use of littlegirls as autoerotic stimuli. Below and left is a typical “Playmate DataSheet,” February 2006. The little bunny-eared child injects this ‘childplaymate,’ or ‘child centerfold’ into Playboy’s masturbatory mix after ahiatus of roughly three years. The year my study was released 39% of Playboy centerfolds were of children under age 12. In 1986 to 1988,moving young teens back in 1989 and 91.

cartooning the child and statutory rape trickery (getting the victimdrunk), which was also suspended post-1985.”

The following analysis addresses the use of the child in Playboy’ssexual milieu. A “centerfold” was a picture on a sheet of paper that wasinserted into the middle of a publication.

Turning the page, one saw the naked Centerfold alongsideher child photos, automatically eroticizing the girl child--hence girlchildren as a “class.” However, in recent times Playboy introduced afour-foldout centerfold. This new fold allows the child’s photos to openup over the lower body of her naked Playmate self.
