Playboy Launches Safe-For-Work Web Site

 

Playboy has launched a safe-for-work web site with the aim of reaching aged 25- to 34-year-old men who are at work, bored, and browsing. Most employees are firewalled off from sites such as playboy.com due to its nudity.

The new site, TheSmokingJacket.com won´t actually contain the articles that so many claim to read Playboy for, instead concentrating on being funny and "basically a juke box of cool".

"It´s all about social currency. You want to be the first guy of your friends to send the funny joke, the crazy video ... You can be the coolest guy among your friends..." said Playboy´s editorial director Jimmy Jellinek.

  We´ll see.  
 
Expressions like "juke box of cool" don´t inspire confidence for me. Maybe I just lack a sense of humour but being the first person to send all the jokes usually gets known as a friendly spammer.

  SFW?  
 
Definitely not in my office. I can´t imagine there being many offices where you could openly browse this site!

I had to shrink my browser window to the size of a Post-It note to keep others from seeing what I was seeing!

Despite being NSFW, it does seem like a pretty cool site. Will probably visit it again... just not from the office.

  agreed... TheSmokingJacket.com is NSFW  
 
they need to tone down their content and language to at least a low PG equivalent instead of the level they´re at right now

I think they probably self-rated their site as safe for work. They need an independent company to rate their site for them. Obviously, Playboy has a very biased concept of what´s safe for work.

I only read thesmokingjacket.com for the articles.

  n/t  
 
Just the word ´Playboy´ would get it blocked more than likely.

  So in other words...  
 
Playboy has removed its soft R rated photos and left in all the information needed so douchebags can learn which colognes and doo dads they need to buy in order to keep up with their loser friends....

How nice.
