Playboy wants to build a space station

In a collaboration for the ages, Playboy intends to partner with Virgin, yes, Virgin Galactic, to create a "Playboy Club" in space. You know, eventually.

Virgin, run by leonine founder Sir Richard Branson (who's been hyping space tourism for years) offers tickets starting at $200,000 for a sub-orbital flight with six minutes of weightlessness. With that as a benchmark, I can only imagine what VIP passes to a floating pleasure palace would run you. You see, the Playboy Club would reside in a space station in permanent stately orbit around the Earth, and boasts all the amenities that you'd expect in a futuristic space structure for the wealthy and fabulous.

According to Playboy, it would be the "ultimate intergalactic entertainment destination," or... the only one. The restaurant will come complete with gravity "to prevent chaos," but have no fear, the on-board dance club will offer a  "totally encompassing zero-gravity psychedelic experience" as will the "zero-gravity sex suites." Zounds!

In the end, this idea isn't that outlandish. After all, who knows more about defying gravity than Playboy? Now check out some conceptual artwork below. We both know you didn't click on this to read the article.

There's already a space station up there and it's not of any particular use. Hef should just buy it from the government(s).

Hef should run for president. Washington is already full of big boobs with the biggest boob of all is already living in the White House.

The Oldest Profession is everywhere. Why shouldn't it be in space as well?
