Opposition to Indonesian Playboy magazine

Yosef Ardi of Indonesia Today calls the first issue of the Indonesian edition of Playboy magazine a “smashing success” despite insistence by some quarters that it is pornographic because it is Playboy. Indonesia Matters agrees that the opposition from “predictable quarters” is not necessarily because of the magazine's content (no nudity) but because of prevailing perception. Andry S Huzain says, “Playboy Indonesia IS Playboy. It is just a series of parade of big boops blonde-naked women with IQ not over fifteen.” A. Fatih Syuhud says, “If you agree with it, buy it. If you dont, just leave it.”
