Playboy is a monthly magazine, founded in 1953 by Hugh Hefner and his associates and targeted at adult men. The magazine is published monthly and features photographs of nude women, along with various articles on fashion, sports, consumer goods, and public figures. It also has short fiction by top literary writers. Playboy's use of "tasteful" nude photos is often classified as "softcore" in contrast to the more "hardcore" pornographic magazines that started to appear in the 1970s in response to the success of Playboy's more explicit rival, Penthouse.

Although the cover has been manipulated for the movie, the two did once share the actual cover of Us magazine in 1978.
