Female Bloggers Want Out of Playboy Poll

Filed as News on July 17, 2008 4:42 am

Veronica Belmont and Sarah Austin wants out of the sexiest female bloggers poll on Playboy, according to a story on TechCrunch, but Playboy says no. It would, of course disrupt the poll. While I have no love for these kind of polls, and the Playboy one is no exception, I do think that if you’ve consented to being featured by Playboy, and even sent in a photo, you’ve got only yourself to blame. In fact, I was somewhat surprised by how frank Playboy was in their approaching e-mail, quoted on TechCrunch.

Sure, maybe they didn’t know that Playboy would ask the winner to pose for the website, but the key word here is ask. You don’t have to say yes, you know…

Luckily, for those involved wanting out, it seems as if the feature’s going away soon. I would bet, however, that we’ll be seeing more of this in the future.

Update: Veronica Belmont actually doesn’t want out, she just wish she knew what Playboy was doing before accepting.

    Not true, I never said I wanted out. I only commented that I wish I had known the true nature of the “article” they were writing.

    Yea, Veronica is right. I’m the only one who said I want out. It’s not me as much as my parents.
