Playboy Magazine, May 1980

Playboy's May 1980 issue is filled with insightful interviews, intriguing articles, and compelling pictorials.

In this issue, Gay Talese discusses his in-depth exploration of America's sexual mores, revealed in his new book "Thy Neighbor's Wife", with Playboy interviewer Larry DuBois. He talks about the pioneers of American sex and the effects his research has had on his personal life.

The issue also delves into the transformation of what was once the Black Muslim cult into America's largest orthodox Muslim community by Imam Wallace D. Muhammad, an essential figure for the Arab community.

A humorously updated etiquette guide provides answers to offbeat questions like what to wear to a nuclear meltdown and the correct way to invite friends to a V.D. clinic.

The pictorial section features Silvana Suarez, the former Miss Argentina, modeling as the muse for interpretations of painter René Magritte's works. This section also includes a special feature on Playboy's Playmate of the Month, high-flying Martha Thomsen.

Finally, the issue takes a look at the sexual revolution in Boston and how the city is uniquely dealing with changing societal norms.

This vintage magazine is a great addition to any collector's stash, available in specialty magazine stores or online platforms for old magazines.
