Saya paling anti dengan hal seperti itu,” tegasnya. Berulangkali itu diulangnya selama berbicara dengan Global. “Ayo dong merubah image,” ujarnya menanggapi seringnya “praktek tercela” itu terjadi dalam pemilihan-pemilihan model di kota ini. Anton terkenal sebagai juri yang tidak bisa diganggu gugat, paling anti dengan “permainan” dalam setiap perlombaan.Karena sikap tegasnya itu Anton kerap dipercayakan menjadi juri dalam berbagai ajang pemilihan model baik di Jakarta, Jawa Timur, atau Jawa Tengah.

Playboy Magazine history

Playboy is an American adult entertainment magazine, founded in 1953 by Hugh Hefner and his associates, which has grown into Playboy Enterprises, Inc., reaching into every form of media. Playboy is one of the world's best known brands. In addition to the flagship magazine in the United States, special nation-specific versions of Playboy are published worldwide.

The magazine is published monthly and features photographs of nude women, along with various articles on fashion, sports, consumer goods, and public figures. It also has short fiction by top literary writers, such as Arthur C. Clarke, Ian Fleming, Vladmir Nabokov, and Margaret Atwood. The magazine has been known to express liberal opinions on most major political issues. Playboy's use of "tasteful" nude photos is often classified as "softcore" in contrast to the more "hardcore" pornographic magazines that started to appear in the 1970s in response to the success of Playboy's more explicit rival, Penthouse.

Playboy's original title was to be "Stag Party," but an unrelated outdoor magazine, Stag, contacted Hefner and informed him that they would legally protect their trademark if he were to launch his magazine with that name. Hefner and co-founder and executive vice president Eldon Sellers met to discuss the problem and to seek a new name. Sellers, whose mother had worked for the short-lived Playboy Automobile Company in Chicago, suggested the name "Playboy".

The first issue, published in December 1953, did not carry a date, as Hefner was unsure whether there would be a second issue. The first centerfold was Marilyn Monroe, although the picture used had originally been taken for a calendar, rather than for Playboy. The first issue was an immediate sensation; it sold out within a matter of weeks. Known circulation was 53,991 (Source: Playboy Collector's Association Playboy Magazine Price Guide). The cover price was 50¢. Copies of the first issue in Mint to Near Mint condition fetched over $5,000 in 2002.

The famous logo, depicting the stylized profile of a rabbit wearing a tuxedo bow tie, was designed by art designer Art Paul for the magazine's second issue and has appeared on every issue since; a running joke in the magazine involves hiding the logo somewhere in the cover art or photograph. Hefner said that he chose the rabbit as a mascot for its "humorous sexual connotation", and because the image was "frisky and playful".

An urban legend started about Hefner and the Playmates of the Month because of markings on the front covers of the magazine. From 1955 to 1979 (except for a six month gap in 1976), the "P" in Playboy had a number of stars printed in or around the letter. The legend stated that this was either a rating that Hefner gave to the Playmate according to how attractive she was, the number of times that Hefner had slept with her, or how good she was in bed. The stars, which ranged in number between zero and twelve, actually indicated the domestic or international advertising region for that printing.

Since reaching its peak in the 1970s, Playboy has seen a decline in circulation and cultural relevance because of increased competition in the field it founded — first from Penthouse, Oui, and Gallery in the 1970s; later from pornographic videos; and more recently from lad mags such as Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. In response Playboy has attempted to re-assert its hold on the 18–35 male demographic it once controlled through slight changes to its content and focusing on issues and personalities more appropriate to its audience—such as hip-hop artists being featured in the Playboy Interview.

Christie Hefner, a daughter of Hugh Hefner, became the CEO of Playboy in 1988 and is now also the Chairman of the Board.

The magazine celebrated its 50th Anniversary with the January 2004 issue. Celebrations were held at Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, and Moscow during the year to commemorate this event.

Playboy Indonesia | Tiara Lestari

Tiara Lestari
is the pride of Indonesian Playboy appearing in the cover of Playboy Spain.
Indonesians are hoping to see Tiara again in Playboy Indonesia but with her comments below, there is little chance that we will see her again especially in Playboy Indonesia. Guess we have to search for Playboy Spain for more of her pictures.

I respect Playboy as an internationally known publication. Everyone from legendary Marilyn Monroe to Pamela Anderson to Madonna to Cindy Crawford have benefited from their professional relationships with the magazine. I have made a personal decision as a model to also follow that route last year. This decision certainly wasn't popular in my own country. Heck, it was a huge disappointment for my parents too. I regret that part of it. For that, I am sorry. For my parents who I love very much, and for them alone, I have made another personal decision to not pursue that line of work anymore. Being on the cover of Playboy can be considered peak of any model's career. As they say, "Been there done that."

However, I was aware of one thing; I appeared in a country that does not consider Playboy and nudity as taboo. My appearance was never intended for consumption of Indonesia. How many Indonesians do you now read Playboy Spain? My pictures circulating on the internet happened without my being consulted. I do not have rights to those pictures. Not offending my countrymen was one of the criteria of my decision making process in appearing in Playboy Spain.

We hope you changed your mind Tiara...

Bans of Playboy and Playboy Indonesia

In many parts of Asia, including China, Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, and Brunei, the sale and distribution of Playboy is banned. In addition, its sale and distribution is banned in almost all Muslim countries in Asia and Africa, such as Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. However, it is sold in Hong Kong. In Japan, where the genitals of models cannot be shown, a separate edition of Playboy is published under license by Shueisha.

An Indonesian Edition of Playboy launched in April 2006 but the controversy started before the first issue was published. Even the publisher said that the content of the Indonesian edition will be different from the original edition but the government was trying hard to ban it by using pornographic rules since the Indonesian government cannot ban any media. A local Muslim Organization, the Islamic Defenders Front (IDF), is also opposed to Playboy being published on the grounds that it is pornography. On April 12 a group of about 150 IDF members clashed with police and stoned the editorial offices of the magazine. Despite this controversy, the edition quickly sold out.

Playboy Indonesia has since moved from Jakarta- Java to Bali-Denpasar to avoid confrontation as Bali is more of a tourist resort and less has less muslim population.  Up till today August 2006, Playboy Indonesia has still continued to publish its Indonesian magazines. However, the IDF still has not give up its effort of stopping the production of Playboy Indonesia. It has announced that it will try its best to stop the production but in a civilised way.

In 1986, the American convenience store chain 7-Eleven removed the magazine from its stores. The store returned Playboy to its shelves in late 2003.

In book stores throughout the world it is common for Playboy, as well as other adult publications, to be put on a higher shelf than other magazines thus keeping them out of the reach of children.

Playboy was not sold in the State of Queensland, Australia during 2004 and 2005 but has returned as of 2006. Furthermore, due to declining sales, the last edition of Australian Playboy published was the January 2000 issue.

Playboy Indonesia Released

Edisi perdana Playboy dalam bahasa Indonesia terbit pada 7 April 2006. Pengelola Playboy Indonesia adalah:

    * Erwin Arnada, Pemimpin Redaksi

    * Ponti Corolus, Penerbit/Direktur PT. Velvet Silver Media

    * Stephen Walangitang, Penerbit/Direktur PT. Velvet Silver Media.

Pada edisi perdananya, Playboy Indonesia memuat wawancara panjang dengan sastrawan Pramoedya Ananta Toer dalam rubrik Playboy Interview. Artikel ini merupakan wawancara terakhir yang dilakukan media massa dengan Pram yang meninggal dunia pada 30 April 2006, sekitar tiga pekan setelah wawancaranya diterbitkan oleh Playboy.

Pembelian izin (lisensi) penerbitan Playboy Indonesia dikabarkan mencapai 3 miliar rupiah. Model sampul Playboy edisi perdana adalah Andhara Early dan Playmate Kartika Oktaviani Gunawan.

Beberapa minggu setelah penerbitannya, terkait dengan demonstrasi yang mengarah kepada perusakan, polisi memanggil Erwin Arnada. Setelah melalui pemeriksaan selama 6 jam (lama pemeriksaan dalam konfirmasi), Erwin menyatakan penerbitan Playboy edisi kedua ditangguhkan. Pihak kepolisian sendiri berkata bahwa pernyataan ini berhubungan dengan masalah keamanan staf dan personil yang bekerja untuk majalah Playboy, menimbang ancaman dan perusakan yang terjadi. Polisi juga masih menyelidiki tuduhan yang dilayangkan oleh pihak yang anti, apakah majalah Playboy benar benar melanggar undang undang kesusilaan, pasal 282 KUHP, yang berlaku.

Setelah pernyataan ini, situs lelang ebay asal Amerika Serikat mencatat penawaran untuk membeli Playboy Indonesia edisi pertama mencapai US$101 padahal harga eceran majalah ini hanya Rp. 39,000,- untuk daerah Jawa dan sekitarnya.

Setelah tidak terbit untuk edisi Mei 2006 akibat kontroversi dan ancaman yang merebak, Playboy Indonesia kembali terbit pada 7 Juni 2006. Kantor Playboy Indonesia pun pindah ke Bali setelah kantor di Jakarta beberapa kali dirusak oleh FPI dan ormas-ormas lain yang menolak kehadiran Playboy di Indonesia. Playboy edisi Juni 2006 tidak memiliki satu pun iklan di dalamnya, namun pada setiap halaman yang seharusnya diisi iklan tertuliskan "Halaman ini didedikasikan untuk klien-klien loyal kami yang menerima ancaman karena memasang iklan di majalah kami." Dan kemudian tertuliskan jenis iklan yang seharusnya tampil di halaman tersebut. (misalnya produk rokok, produk handphone, dst.)

Kontroversi Playboy Indonesia

Kontroversi Playboy Indonesia terjadi bahkan sebelum penerbitan pertamanya. Kontroversi tereksploitasi karena waktu penerbitannya bertepatan dengan maraknya pendapat pro dan kontra akan Rancangan Undang Undang Anti Pornografi dan Pornoaksi (RUU APP).

Pemerintah sendiri sejak dicabutnya Surat Ijin Penerbitan Pers (SIUPP) UU No. 11/ 1966 dan mengacu pada UU Pers 40/1999 tentang kebebasan pers, tidak bisa melarang terbitnya media apapun di Indonesia. Pihak penerbit menyatakan bahwa isi edisi Indonesia akan berbeda dari edisi aslinya. Setelah terbit, edisi perdana majalah tersebut tidak memuat foto wanita telanjang, walaupun ada keraguan bahwa hal tersebut akan bertahan pada edisi-edisi berikutnya.

Dampak Penerbitan Playboy Indonesia

Dari pihak konsumen, fenomena yang terjadi dengan terbitnya Playboy secara resmi cukup menarik, pihak yang mendukung/ tidak menolak dan pihak yang menentang sama sama kecewa. Pembeli merasa kecewa karena isinya tidak sesuai dengan yang mereka harapkan. Mereka berharap isi majalah Playboy Indonesia akan seprovokatif versi Amerika, dan ini tidak terjadi. Pihak yang anti kecewa karena Playboy jadi terbit.

Di Jawa Tengah, organisasi masa yang mayoritas ormas muslim mulai melakukan penyisiran pada penjual koran dan majalah. Mereka melakukan perampasan majalah-majalah dan tabloid berorientasi hiburan pria yang sejenis. Akibatnya masyarakat umum pun mulai kesulitan untuk menemukan majalah ini, untuk menghindari keributan antara pihak penjual dan ormas, Polisi pun mulai menyisir sendiri majalah dan tabloid ini. Di daerah Depok Polisi tidak menemukan lagi majalah tersebut dan sebagai gantinya polisi banyak menyita VCD porno dan VCD bajakan lainnya. Tindakan penyitaan ini tidak saja dilakukan dari tempat berjualan mereka tetapi juga dengan mendatangi rumah penjual dan menyitanya dari rumah mereka. 

Di Maluku, Majalah Playboy mendapat sambutan hangat, ini diakibatkan karena keingintahuan masyarakat akan isi majalah yang ramai dibicarakan di media. Tidak saja pria dewasa yang membelinya, bahkan ibu rumah tangga dan anak anak. Banyak yang ingin membeli kehabisan karena kiriman stok dari Jakarta terbatas.

Demonstrasi, Perusakan, dan Ancaman

Pada hari yang sama Playboy terbit ormas Front Pembela Islam (FPI) mendatangi kantor Plaboy di Jl. T.B Simatupang dan melakukan demonstrasi dengan melakukan, orasi, perusakan, dan pembakaran. Pemilik gedung kantor Playboy, AAF (Aceh Asean Fertilizer), protes atas kerusakan yang ditimbulkan FPI dan meminta agar Playboy pindah demi keamanan penyewa lainnya.

Kantor majalah Playboy pindah ke gedung perkantoran Fatmawati Mas. Sebagai antisipasi untuk menghadapi demonstrasi dan pengrusakan, disini kantor Playboy dijaga oleh masyarakat Betawi sekitar. Poster poster bertuliskan "Silahkan berdemo, asal jangan anarkis" nampak jelas ditempelkan di depan kantor. Salah satu penjaga dari komunitas Betawi ini menyatakan bahwa mereka akan menjaga keamanan kompleks perkantoran ini dari pihak yang tidak bertanggung jawab. Bila memang Playboy harus tutup, mereka ingin agar pemerintah yang menentukan, dan menyatakan ketidak-setujuan akan segala tindakan main hakim sendiri.

Model sampul Playboy Indonesia Andara Early, dan Playmate Kartika Oktavini Gunawan, juga dilaporkan kepada Polisi atas dasar pornografi oleh Masyarakat Anti Pembajakan dan Pornografi Indonesia [1]. Penyanyi dangdut yang terkenal akan goyangannya yang kontroversial, Inul Daratista, walaupun tidak pernah tampil di Majalah Playboy, didatangi puluhan orang yang berdemonstrasi ke rumahnya, di daerah Pondok Indah, Jakarta Selatan, pada tanggal 15 April 2006, hanya karena menyatakan bila ada tawaran untuk menjadi model majalah Playboy, ia bersedia[2].

Tersangka tindak pidana susila

Pada 29 Juni 2006, polisi menetapkan Pemimpin Redaksi Majalah Playboy Erwin Arnada, dan model majalah ini, yaitu Kartika Oktavina Gunawan dan Andara Early, sebagai tersangka. Setelah terbitnya Playboy edisi ke-2 dan ke-3, Fla Priscilla dan Julie Estelle kemudian juga ditetapkan sebagai tersangka.

Penetapan tersangka itu terkait laporan Masyarakat Anti Pembajakan dan Pornografi Indonesia (MAPPI) dan FPI. Dalam laporan tersebut, ketiganya dianggap telah melanggar pasal 282 KUHP tentang Tindak Pidana Susila.
