Varone, Phil (Model/Subject) & The Editors of Playgirl Magazine. PHIL VARONE NUDE! : THE PLAYGIRL MAGAZINE ISSUE. Los Angeles, CA: Playgirl Magazine, 2010. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 95 pages. As New.

Rare Phil Varone/Playgirl Magazine collectible item. A signed copy of the Playgirl Magazine Winter 2010 Issue. Features the controversial "Sex Rehab" reality television show actor and former rock star on the cover and nude photographs in the inside pages. The Issue sold out upon publication, became a huge bestseller, Playgirl Magazine's single most successful Single Issue since 2008, and is now rare. An accomplished drummer, music producer, and songwriter best-known for his work with the bands Saigon Kick, Skid Row, Vince Neil and Prunella Scales, Phillip Varone III starred in "Waking Up Dead" (2007), the award-winning and riveting documentary, in which a film crew followed him around for several years to document the life of a rock star. He sported long hair then and bore a striking resemblance to the legendary Jim Morrison so it's no wonder that he ended up sleeping with thousands of people. Varone spoke about his sex addiction on The Oprah Winfrey Show, which introduced him to a whole new (and more mainstream) audience. It is not clear if his addiction is cured: He appeared as basically himself in "Californication", the hit cable series of yet another real-life sex addict, David Duchovny. And now he's in PG. Playgirl Magazine ceased publication and became an online magazine only in late-2008. The Levi Johnston Winter 2010 Issue marked its very first "single issue" publication since it stopped printing its Monthly as well as Special Issues. It has since been followed by this second Winter 2010 Issue (there was no Spring Issue while the Levi Johnston and Phil Varone Issues are Winter "bookends"), indicating that the magazine will be published on a very sporadic, "opportunistic" basis. As such, it consists almost entirely of full-frontal nude photographs from cover to cover, with very little accompanying text and no magazine feature articles. Phil Varone bares it all. A "must-have" title for Phil Varone and male erotic photography collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed in black pen-marker on his Centerfold by Phil Varone. It is signed directly on the magazine itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This Issue was distributed on a limited basis and is now highly collectible. This is the only such signed and inscribed copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. A flawless copy.
