Before 'Playboy', 'Modern Man' Was Really an Excellent Magazine For Men

Was there a girlie magazine more consistent than Modern Man with its covers?  Where Playboy, Tiger, Rogue, Fling, etc. would get creative - Modern Man was steadfast in its faithfulness to the  One Woman w/ Cleavage layout.

Never did it experiment with maybe adding two women.  Never did it go heavy on the props and setting.  Simplicity ruled on Modern Man: Just feature a chick with cleavage and be done with it.

Modern Man Magazine Covers in the 1950s

Modern Man came before Playboy (1951), but it didn't last as long.  Wikipedia has it expiring in 1967; however, as the covers below attest - it was alive and well in the 1970s.

So, here's a giant stack of Modern Man covers, keepin' it simple.  It's interesting to see, as we scroll through the years, the amount of skin gradually increases.  Enjoy.
