The October 1956 issue of Playboy presents a diverse array of content. The issue kicks off with "The Right Kind of Pride," a fiction piece, and lightens the mood with "The Football Blanket," a humorous take on the sport.

A pictorial titled "For Export Only" showcases exotic visuals, while "Put Them All Together They Spell Monster" is a satirical piece. Lifestyle segments include "Hospitality," “King’s Cord,” and “The Potent Parvenu” for drink enthusiasts. "Janet's Date at Dartmouth" is a pictorial that adds visual allure. “Miss October” is introduced as Playboy's Playmate of the Month, and the “Playboy’s Party Jokes” section adds humor. Readers are transported to a new destination in “Ambiente Land,” while “The Hoodwinked Husband” offers a ribald classic tale. The issue also includes a Hemingway pastiche, advice on saving money on your wife’s clothing, and another fiction titled “A Pound of Flesh.” A lifestyle feature on attire is “A Tightly Knit Yarn,” and “Playboy’s Penthouse Apartment” returns to give insights on modern living. The issue also features the “Playboy Jazz Poll” and an amusing pictorial on how to bathe a poodle. "Playboy's Bazaar" provides a buying guide.
