Playboy Puts Nude HP Girl Jodie Fisher Photos Behind Paywall

Magazine unearths unpublished shots of Hewlett-Packard consultant

While Playboy Enterprises was busy cutting costs and mulling Hugh Hefner’s stock offer, the magazine’s website stumbled into a mini-coup.

Jodie Fisher — the sometimes softcore porn actress whose tenure as a Hewlett-Packard consultant led to sexual harassment allegations and the ouster of HP CEO Mark Hurd — was featured in Playboy 30 years ago.

While Fisher appeared just once in the September 1980 pictorial — "Girls of the Southwest Conference” — the magazine unearthed 16 shots of the then 20-year-old Texas Tech co-ed from its archives.

Smartly, Playboy posted three semi-nude photos as a free teaser, and put the rest behind the paywall of its “Cyber Club.”

Now, Fisher’s no Kim Kardashian, but the archive score ought to get a few drive-by memberships — $19.95 per month, or $7.95 if you buy a year’s worth — from the tech community.
