Appropriate for a young teenager?
Ok first I am not a prude, I just have tunnel vision sometimes.

How would you feel about a 13 year old strutting around in a Playboy bikini. Yes with the logo on the top. While the swimsuit provides full coverage for a bikini, would the logo bother you enough to believe that is not the message a 13 year old should be sending out about herself?
I can't see a relation with what 12-18+ year old fashion models wear on runways. Like I said, I have tunnel vision sometimes. I find whatever acceptable as long as its tastefully done and fashion and done well. I think that when people think of Playboy they think of pornography. While even fashion magazines are sex driven as well, they don't quite have the reputation of being pornography. In my opinion, but I'm asking for yours as well, I think the logo sends out the wrong message for a young girl to wear out in public and to own. Do you agree, disagree?

Agreed. It's really base.

Tacky and ugly, yes, but totally harmless.

Is this it?



Sending out the wrong message is the beholder's problem, not the wearer's I think. And if this young tart does have issues, it's certainly not because of her choice of swimwear, it's probably a deep-rooted family situation.

It's too much for a 13 year-old, but I think there is the argument that the Playboy logo doesn't really evoke the thought of pornography anymore. "I'm trendy and looking for attention" is what I usually think when I see it on clothing; it's that overexposed.

Actually its this one that I saw.... (copy and paste)


http://ompi.onemodelplace.com/OMP_Images/P...0BF3-2B3D-897A-

You can see the logo is small... not entirely a big deal, but still I wonder what was going through the parents' head when they bought this for their daughter... as I don't know many 13 year olds who don't have to have their parent's approval on what they want.

This suit is more fitting for someone in their twenties maybe thirties. To me that is what the age range looks like, but I may be wrong.

If she was 16 or 17 maybe I'd have a different opinion. But I mean she's still a baby, according to her age, I don't still know if I think its ok for a girl in her early teens to be owning anything advertising a company like Playboy. I know girls always want to be older than they are, but where is the line?

Thanks everybody!

Link isn't working. I tried to fix and I can't.

I will try to paste the photo... but I am on a Mac and don't know how to do this actually.

Well that didn't work... so now I had to save it and try to put it in as an attachment. But I am previewing right now and the photo didn't come up... so I don't think its going to work when I add the reply.

You're 14!?

Not that there is anything wrong with that of course, I just never would have guessed!

I see so many girls from 13+ with Playboy bunny t-shirts, phone logos etc.

I honestly don't think many of them see it as sexual debasement, or what Playboy itself represents. I just think they want to look 'cool', whatever that may be at any given moment.

I think this is ridiculous. It's just like 13 year olds thinking that thats what is "sexy" and thats the image some people want to put out there. Playboy shirts are sold at stores like Gadzooks where their main target is that 13-16 age group. It's true that its just a tee shirt but its that message your putting out there. If you wore a regulare t-shirt that covered your whole body but said something like "I just cant say no." or sometihng like that and your 13 would that be okay? in my opinion no. not to mention all Playboy gives a message that women are just objects for men to look at and for 13 year old boys to pin up over their beds so they can masterbate

13 year old or not, NO ONE should wear the playboy logo on any of their clothing.. it looks tacky.. the only people who should wear it are the fake chicks who pose in the mag.

And as for parents who buy their kids this... it's just messed up. It's basically telling the kid that it's ok to entertain the idea of being sexy or even having sex... Kids should be kids.. not worry about that crap.

It makes me sound old, but a majority of the teenagers these days are growing up way too quick.. having sex.. drinking... getting pregnant.. I just heard the other day that a 7 year old got pregnant... set some kind of **** record.

I know that's off the subject.. but damn! Keep the porno related stuff in your dad's bedside table or under the mattress. Not on your 13 year old's barely there boobs.

I know this is a generalisation, but a lot of girls who wear Playboy are skanks. It is generally not something that most girls my age wear - so its not as popular as you may think. At least, where I live.

I have Playboy underwear that was given to me as a gift, i wear it to bed and if anyone sees it I get quite embarressed to be wearing anything with the logo on it... I guess as soon as you see it it is associated with sex and porn and imo a 13 year old shouldn't even consider wearing that sort of stuff...
