    I thought the child was a little girl!

  2. zipper says:

    Dad looks a bit like Beau Bridges.

  3. Jane says:

    You think it’s quite normal until you see that the cover of the magazine says, “PLAY BOY”

  4. Weesy says:

    I think that is a little girl…makes it that much better

  5. Ducky says:

    To paraphrase Spider Robinson, “When did a naked blade become less obscene than a naked woman?” I agree the young man is not really old enough to look at such things but it won’t hurt him. And really, think of all the violence we do let our kids see. Consider the news alone and all the violence there. A photo or two in a Playboy isn’t going to ruin him for life. But it IS funny and awkward to look at.

    My dad used to read (and I mean read [not saying he didn’t look at the pictures in private]) Playboy in the living room. But, I never read the articles with him. I just snuck a peek (at the articles) when nobody was around. By the way frida, I am a husband and father who adores his wife and children.

  7. GeigerCounter says:

    I don’t see what the fuzz is all about. There’s actually quite a lot of articles in Playboy, even short stories, and not as much nudity as one might think. He’s very likely reading something to the kid.

  8. Ryder says:

    is that OBI-WAN and a young Anakin?

  9. Kaisee says:

    Could be worse, they could be “reading” Hustler!

  10. Maddie says:

    Um, anyone notice the other arm in that photo? Apparently Mom is there too and is just fine with her little non-gender-specific child looking at Playboy with Daddy.

  11. Kate says:

    CREEPY! Sadly, I have a picture like this from my childhood as well.

  12. frida says:

    Way to go Dad! You’ve set your son up for a lifetime of meaningful connection, secure gender identity, and respect for women… This man is an idiot. God have mercy on us all.

    • Chris says:

      I’m sure the now some what matured child in the photo would love to have a word with/laugh at you.

    • Dfoxx says:

      My parents didn’t mind me seeing the girlie mags when I was a kid and they’re not idiots at all. They’re the two greatest and smartest people in the world to me. I am grateful they didn’t raise me to be a prude.

  13. Alan says:

    Little Kevin was shocked to finally see a real live naked woman…..she didn’t have a staple in her middle.

  14. Grace says:

    Did anyone else notice what appears to be a woman’s arm on the other side of the kid!!?!? Oh the awkwardness just keeps growing….

  15. Rob says:

    Thankfully it is not the braille edition.

  16. crazybabe says:

    Why is that daddy showing that little boy pictures of naked mommies?

  17. Anthony O'Neill says:

    Nothing says love like cuddling with your son in your wife-beater reading a Playboy!! Classy!!

  18. Cal says:

    Ohh relax..Playboy has a children’s section. WRONG!!!

  19. Susan says:

    Maybe, just maybe that is a “Cowboy” magazine… which make is sweet!

  20. kendrea says:

    It took a minute, but HA HA HA!!!!

  21. Sue says:

    Is that magazine a Playboy?

  22. Michael says:

    “Dad just reads it for the articles.”

  23. Anna says:


  24. donna says:

    Reading Playboy?

  25. Kristen says:

    OMG!! This would be a lovely photo (and I thought it was) until I saw the mag. Awkward indeed!!

  26. Brian says:

    Is this supposed to be funny? If so, I don’t get. Maybe if it were the viewing pleasure of Playboy that they’re sharing… but it’s not clear, thus rendering it “unfunny”.

  27. Cheetoy says:

    That’s… a Playboy mag…. Well, this boy will be well verse in … girls.

  28. Michelle says:

    Well, this explains a lot. *snark*

  29. Sarah says:


  30. Malcolm Taylor says:

    I’m SURE they’re just reading that magazine’s thoughtful articles.

  31. Susan says:

    LOL sorry, I didn’t see what they were reading. I should have known it wouldn’t be a nice photo!

  32. sparky says:

    Must be a darn good article!!!!

  33. Susan says:

    That’s not awkward. That’s a nice photo.

  34. Bosley says:

    “Son, we need to focus on priorities. And it is never too early to start learning what they are.”

  35. Kelly says:

    Apparently Playboy IS good for just the articles lol!

  36. Neal says:

    It’s the articles, I swear!
    Signed, Dad

  37. Jenni says:

    at first, i thought, “what is so awkward about this picture? it is a dad reading to his son.” and then i looked closer and realized they were “reading” PLAYBOY!!! LOL!!!

  38. What the? says:

    Inappropriate reading material aside, is that a boy wearing a girls bathing suit?

  39. Truly Scrumptious says:

    That was so sweet … until I saw the magazine. Now it’s just… ick.

  40. Whatthe? says:

    Aside from the inappropriate family reading material, is that a boy wearing a leotard?

  41. Jujuhockey says:

    I thought…aww this is such a sweet pic…nothing akwa…wait they are looking at a Playboy together. Did I miss a vital parenting moment by not sharing a Playgirl with my daughter? lol

  42. stef says:

    wrong on so many levels for so many different reasons… but I repeat myself.

  43. kat says:

    Maybe he’s just reading him the articles.

  44. Calum says:

    Awww, how cute. Dad’s teaching his son about the birds and the bees!

  45. Pilgrim says:

    It took a while but I finally realized what the dad is reading. Oy vey!

  46. Jesse says:

    omg… YES!! this picture is just sooooo perfect.

  47. Nancy says:

    well that’s just sweet!

  48. Mrs. B says:
