Mom Jenny McCarthy’s Playboy Shoot – Sexy or Scandalous?

Posted by Alissa Robson

Excuse us, we’re about to get a little scandalous – let’s talk about Jenny McCarthy’s Playboy photo shoot, which she calls “A Salute to the MILFs”!

Posing nude in racy photos might give many moms pause, especially if they’re moms of older, web-savvy kids. While McCarthy’s son Evan, 10, won’t be getting his hands on the latest issue of Playboy anytime soon, he is at an age where he has access to computers and could, in theory, find the photos of his mom.

But McCarthy is taking it all in stride. “I think he can find a lot worse available on the Internet these days,” she said in an interview with People Magazine. “I think people make such a big deal sometimes about it, when I feel like it just comes down to how you raise your child and how you explain things to your kid.”

As for how she’ll explain it, McCarthy feels she’s got a bit of time before she and Evan have “that conversation”, but that she will have it with him when the time comes. In the meantime, she tends to keep her modelling out of the home, and doesn’t display any of her magazine photos on her walls.

“It's like, who wants to look at themselves? I don't,” she explained. “Seriously, the only picture I have up of myself is one of a shark eating Evan and me.”

While we may be a little shy of doing it ourselves (who wouldn’t be, unless they’re blessed with McCarthy’s slammin’ body?), we do applaud Jenny for having the guts to bare it all on Playboy at 39, and for celebrating her sexuality along with her motherhood.

What do you think of McCarthy’s Playboy gig? Is it appropriate for a mom to bare all? Let us know your thoughts in the SureBaby comments!
