The covers were much more sensual back then.

Burlesque shows are becoming more popular recently - perhaps we are seeing a rebirth of art in pornography? Lets hope so Today's porn is so bland, *yawn*

The covers are gorgeous, it makes a lot more sense why Dita Von Teese said she was inspired by her father's old Playboys. There's a lot of feminine, coquettish charm in the girls from the 60s-70s.

About the shift in the early 90s, I know nothing about Playboy's history but wasn't Hef on his last marriage when he was trying to "reform his ways" and his daughter Christie started to shore up the business side of Playboy and assumed more responsibility for Playboy? I wonder if a shift in management/people somehow influenced that? (Feel free to correct me though.)

And I never knew you could make Dr. Pepper hot toddys (1st pg).

I think there still is? I haven't bought an issue of Playboy recently enough to know if the tradition continues, but I'd forgotten all about it until you said!

Playboy.com itself has updated its archive section, they seem to offer every cover AND the opportunity to vote for faves:

I bring you Japanese Playboy's erotic cover subject for the November 2007 issue... Eric Clapton!

I don't know if they're constrained from using near-nudity, but whatever their rules, it makes for some unusual covers, given what we expect of a Playboy:
