Playboy Launches Hebrew Language Edition

JERUSALEM (March 5, 2013)--U.S. émigré, Daniel Pomerantz, launched the first Hebrew language edition of the popular men's magazine Playboy on Tuesday.

Playboy has been widely available in Israel for years, but this marks the first local edition of the magazine.

It features Israeli models and articles by Israeli writers.

It's not clear how well the magazine will be received in the Holy Land, where religious sensitivities simmer under the surface and observant Jews and Muslims live by strict modesty rules.

Adult magazines and videos are freely available, but not with local models and not in Hebrew.

Playboy was launched in 1953 with the iconic Marilyn Monroe centerfold.

It peaked in popularity in the 1970s and circulation declined since the rise of adult Internet sites.
