It was only a matter of time before Playboy got into podcasting.
Or, rather, "bodcasting."
The world's most famous men's magazine has begun offering "Playboy bodcasts" from its Web site for download and viewing on portable devices such as Apple's iPod.
"Our fans are clearly interested in viewing fun, sexy Playboy features on these kinds of portable players," said John D. Thomas, editor of Playboy.com.
The free video clips available for download include Playboy big dog Hugh Hefner dispensing "wit and wisdom" and Playmates cracking jokes and offering love advice.
A Playboy spokesperson said the free downloads are rated PG, but the company plans to offer "sexier" premium content in the future.
