Virgin Mary bares all for Playboy Mexico

Playboy Mexico and its patrons are raking in the Christmas cheer in a most shocking way. The current issue appears to be a tribute to the Virgin Mary, and, by all indications, the model portraying her does her Garden of Eden best inside the magazine’s pages. After only days on the newsstand, more than 80,000 copies have sold.

MichelleMMM points out the religious dissonance here: “Isn’t Mexico a catholic country? This would never go over in Italy.”

I don’t think this would even fly in the United States. No word yet from Bill Donahue and the Catholic League; they’ve weighed in before on Playboy’s use of the Catholic schoolgirl outfit.
