Playboy Magazine Releases Hebrew Version

Playboy Israel

No longer will Israelis be subjected to spanking off to nudie magazines in a language other than their own; this week Playboy released a Hebrew edition of the iconic lifestyle rag for the “discriminating gentlemen” of the holy land.

Though the American version of the magazine has been circulating throughout Israel for may years, the local version will feature articles written by Israeli writers, not to mention nude Israeli playmates. Owner and publisher Daniel Pomeranz says that he believes the new magazine will give its readers along the Mediterranean Sea a taste of living large.

“Our target is men who want a taste of the good life and also women who are curious about the tastes of the men in their lives,” said Pomerantz. “I believe that the special formula that has brought Playboy to a rare level of success throughout the world will continue to succeed in my new home Israel.”

However, several past attempts to launch Hebrew porn have been unsuccessful, including the failed launch of an Israeli version of Penthouse Magazine in the late eighties. With the religious sensitivity of both Jews and Muslims, and the changing face of the publishing world, Playboy Israel appears to be a somewhat risky venture.

Yet, Pomerantz believes that the magazine will rise above its obvious adversarial challenges. “Israel is a very complicated country with tradition and modernity, and also with serious things and fun fashionable things and that is exactly the character of Playboy. It is a complicated and beautiful magazine for a complicated and beautiful country,” he said.

“People will see just from the words Playboy Israel that we are a normal country, fashionable, modern, people who work every day with a passion and if you read Playboy magazine you see that it’s not just beauty and fashion but it’s also depth and politics and issues, people who care and think about the world they live in.”

According to the old testament, juicing the ol’ Kosher pickle could get your hand whacked off, so stay tuned.
