This is off-topic here at Jugs n Tugs, but I find it interesting.
There have been quite a few Playboy posts tumbling in the last few days, and I am struck by the changing styles in pubic hair. This is Melodye Prentiss, the first Playmate to show pubic hair in the magazine, in July 1968. Before that, the pubic area was always discreetly covered, or the girl wore pants, panties, a towel, etc.
We don’t see much here, but the unshaped border hints at pubic hair in its natural, unruly state. Competition from the likes of Penthouse and Hustler pushed Playboy into showing more frontal nudity, and it’s our good fortune as erotic archeologists to have a pretty good record of pubic hair mores from this time forward.
