If there is one question we receive routinely from our readers, it is asking us about the name of a specific Playmate from a given year, or month. In response to this, we have decided to compile a list of every Playmate of the Month® and every Playmate of the Year® in a single reference index.
This index is sorted by decade, and then further by month, to indicate the models awarded the coveted title.
Starting from the first Playmate with the magazine’s launch in December 1953 — the infamous Marilyn Monroe edition — through to the most current title holder, each Playmate is listed and associated with her respective month and year.
Additionally, each year has its Playmate of the Year noted to make it very easy to identify who has garnered the prestigious named award.
As new Playmates are added, we will update our index to reflect the changes.
