Playboy South Africa has appointed three heavyweight contributors to its editorial mix. Arthur Goldstuck, Dave Hughes and David Bullard will debut in the October edition of the magazine.
Goldstuck has been the definitive voice on information and communication technology in the country for more than a decade, and with the influence and growing celebrity status of players in the technology area, brings to Playboy both the thought leadership and cutting-edge insight that can match the passion of Playboy’s intelligent and informed readers.
Ernest Hemingway spoke of men getting to an age where they grow accustomed to the discomfort of their vices, among them the sensation of a good whisky spilling down the throat. Dave Hughes has lived in this exalted male world for most of his life and is one of the most respected and knowledgeable people when it comes to good spirits. His approach is no-nonsense, typical Playboy,
laced with deep knowledge for the man who cares to know out of curiosity, rather than to impress anyone else.
David Bullard’s now famous “Out to Lunch” finally finds a refuge from the wilderness by moving to Playboy. A naturally irreverent stirrer of note, Bullard represents the willingness of Playboy to push the boundaries on issues which have become too sanitised in our shrinking public discourse, as well as Playboy’s stance on freedom of speech. To paraphrase Voltaire’s advocacy of the kind of tolerance and freedom of speech which the South African Constitution promotes: “I may disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
