Porn provocateur and friend of the blog Mike Edison is back, and he's here to spread the good word of How Sex Magazines Made the World a Better Place on no less of an Internet soapbox than the uber-popular blog The Huffington Post.
If you read our skinterview with Mike and are interested in fleshing out (pun, as always, intended) his argument on the cultural import of the girly mag, then head on over to Huffington Post NOW and get a risque education on what Playboy, Penthouse, Screw and Hustler have to do with Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and the Pilsbury Doughboy, all delivered with Mike's signature satirical edge. (Plus, like any time somebody talks about porn in a "mass-market" forum, the comments are almost as hilarious as the article itself.)

There's been so much speculation about Lindsay Lohan's Playboy debut- it's nude, it's non-nude, it's partially nude, it's full frontal, it's all just a beautiful, terrible dream- but here's some capital-T Truth: Lindsay will sit down with Ellen Degeneres to talk titties on Ellen next Thursday, December 15.
We're not sure how they'll broach the subject of a nude pictorial, let alone show photos, on daytime network TV, but hey, if Meredith Vieira can flash her panties on Today, then anything is possible, right?
In other Lindsay nudes, a pic of her Playboy cover has leaked online (left), and it does indeed show the ex-child star dolled up in '50s glamour girl style, as was reported last month.
For more, you'll just have to tune in to Ellen next Thursday...or just stay right here at the Mr. Skin blog!
Think you're a jack of all trades? Then meet the master- New York-based writer, musician, editor and provocateur Mike Edison. He's written for Hustler, edited Screw, High Times, and Wrestling's Main Event, played with GG Allin and collaborates with Jon Spencer of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, as well as running his own group Edison Rocket Train, invented the ChroniCaster, and plays a mean theremin to boot.
Mike's currently on the road promoting his newest opus Dirty! Dirty! Dirty!: Of Playboys, Pigs, and Penthouse Paupers, which tells you everything you ever wanted to know (and a few things you didn't) about spank mag pioneers Hugh Hefner, Bob Guccione, Al Goldstein and Larry Flynt.
We were lucky enough to get a few minutes with Mike, who gave us the skinny on porn, potheads, naked puppets, and why Hugh Hefner is a closet queen.

Get ready to jingle your balls, Playboy fans. After a disastrous first shoot for the iconic men's mag, Lindsay Lohan has posed for another set of nude pics, and this time they're Hugh Hefner-approved.
Reps at Playboy say that, now that the boss has signed off on the spread, Lindsay's pictorial will definitely run in the January 2012 issue- just in time for Christmas!
Lindsay's first photo shoot was inspired by Kate Moss, and Hefner allegedly HATED the edgy results.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the new photos that Hef loves so much recall his glory days of the 1950s: "It's a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which...was in the original issue of Playboy," Hefner told The New York Post's Page Six about the spread.
And speaking of spreading, he also confirmed that Lindsay IS fully nude in the pictures but they are "classy."
Lindsay has sat for a Marilyn-inspired photo shoot before, when she re-created the blonde goddess's skinfamous "last sitting" with photographer Bert Stern for New York magazine.
Will Playboy be Lindsay's last sitting? We'll find out when the January issue hits the stands. In the meantime, get a sneak peek at what's in store with more Lindsay Lohan nudes after the jump!
Don't act like you don't know what a FleshLight is. The popular pocket-pussy company is the newest to jump on the Lindsay Lohan nudity train, offering the notorious party girl and sometime actress a whopping $1 million to make a model of her lady parts, which would then be cast in silicone and jerked off into by horny fans, presumably as they look at her (now confirmed full frontal) Playboy spread.
FleshLights are the hottest thing since warming lube on the porn circuit, with dozens of models cast from stars like Jesse Jane and Tori Black's lips (both upper and lower) and back doors to offer maximum bang for your bishop-flogging buck.
Speaking of bucks, Lindsay's reps say she "She would never accept such an offer for any amount of money," but then again that's what they said about Playboy when she was first offered a spread in the mag in 2009. So her FleshLight should be coming out just in time for the release of Herbie Blows a Load and Freaky-Deaky Friday sometime in 2014.
Playboy paid almost a million dollars for the privilege, but you can see nude photos of Lindsay Lohan for FREE right here on the Mr. Skin blog!
Some observers are less than impressed that Playboy shelled out a huge (details are vague, but reportedly it was more than $750k and less than $1 million) wad of cash to shoot Lindsay Lohan for their spank mag.
Why the big letdown? Lindsay does have bug, bouncy, uhm, eyes after all. Perhaps her long, boozy tenure as a tabloid tart has tarnished some of that Linnocent appeal. Or perhaps it's just because (depending on who you ask) the Playboy shoot may be non-nude, and we've totally seen Lindsay's love muffins before.
In between bottle parties at the Chateau Mormont Lindsay has posed topless for a number of shutterbugs, like Marilyn Monroe photographer Bert Stern, skinfamous pervert Terry Richardson, and of course the ever-present paparazzi.
UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting that the Playboy spread WILL be full frontal, and that Lindsay will bare "boobs, ass, and vag", according to a source close to the magazine.
More pics after the jump!
We nearly rocketed out of our tube socks when we heard former child star and tabloid staple Lindsay Lohan will be appearing in an upcoming issue of Playboy. But like too many freckled, foxy, fantastically stacked things, (t)it may be too good to be true.
Details on Lindsay's Playboy appearance are being kept strictly under wraps. Her reps won't confirm (or deny) rumors that she'll appear nude, and the only thing we know for sure is that she was spotted heading into a Beverly Hills mansion this morning for a photo shoot. TMZ reports that LiLo is banking nearly $1,000,000 for the deal -that's cover girl prices- but E! News says an insider on the set told them that it was for a non-nude spread in the January issue.
We'll just have to wait and see, but in the meantime we'll be clutching our tissue boxes in breathless skinticipation. C'mon, Lindsay, make it a slappy nude year!

...So why won't she strip down on screen again? Parks and Recreation's Rashida Jones is (sk)interviewed in the new issue of Playboy magazine, where she admits that while she's usually the type of gal to stay home and play board games on a Friday night, she secretly dreams of something much wilder:
“Streaking through a large crowd has always been a secret fantasy of mine. Disneyland would be fun. Or maybe just showing up at the Apple Store naked and picking up an iPod shuffle and pretending nothing was wrong or different,” she says.
Well, that would be different for this normally skingy celeb, but there wouldn't be a thing wrong with it.
Here's an idea, Rashida- how's about for starters, you get naked in front of a film crew? Until then, we'll be waiting at the Apple store.
