Indonesian Playboy angers Muslims

Indonesia is getting its own version of Playboy. That might not seems like a big deal and actually it isn’t a big deal, but some Muslim groups are getting all bent out of shape about it.

The version of Playboy will not contain nude photos, just swimsuit shots, but Playboy carries a reputation that gives religious conservatives the jitters. If you talk about a nude body around fundamental Muslims and Christians anywhere in the world, they’ll all have a major freaky fear meltdown (Satan, the Devil, I’m going to hell!!!!). I wonder if the publicity Playboy is getting will help its sales, everyone wanting to see what the fuss is about.
Funny thing is, here in Indonesia you can watch TV and they’ll have sexy dancers, plenty of inuendo and many of the popular talk shows are hosted by benchongs. I mean they all like a bit of naughtiness, tell me they don’t !
