On the ‘Art of Gender and Sexuality,’ Playboy NFTs

Adult magazine, Playboy, is collaborating with Sevens Foundation to search for 50 talented digital artists who will transform Playboy’s special series into creative non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The theme of the series is to celebrate freedom of expression, sexuality, gender, and pleasure. ‘The Art of Gender and Sexuality is the first in the series. Applications have already begun and will end on October 1st. The best 50 entries will get selected and shall be displayed at the NFT.NYC.

Playboy is an old player in the NFT space.

Back in May, the erotic magazine partnered with NFT artist Slimesunday to release a digital collection called Liquid Summer. The project involved old and archival photos of Lena Forsén, a famous Playboy model.

Playboy and Cryptocurrency

The relationship between Playboy and cryptocurrency dates back to 2018. Playboy TV began accepting payments in the form of bitcoins (BTC) in 2018. These bitcoin payments flourished and expanded into Playboy.com by June.

Playboy has rebelled against censorship for over 70 years now. According to Playboy’s Vice President of Art Curation and Editorial, Liz Suman, NFTs and encryption go hand-in-hand with Playboy’s resistance to censorship.

To encourage new and struggling artists, Suman said the competition will favor works of women, non-binary artists, and artists who lack a strong social media following.

Non-fungible tokens allow digital artists to protect their art from fraud and theft. Every NFT is unique and has a secure entry on Blockchain ledgers. This prevents anyone from copying the art of using it to sell for themselves.
