While no doubt the majority are lightening their hair, their surnames also skew toward the blonder ethnic groups. However, several are probably stage names, and people normally make up Anglo-Saxon names, so I wouldn't read too much into it. Nonetheless, the number of German/ Nordic/ Russian names, which generally aren't chosen as stage names, is high.

Blondes certainly predominate among recent playmates. In the interests of science ;-), I attempted a similar analysis of early Playboy centerfolds. I was unable to find any complete archives from the 1950s and 1960s, but I did find a site called "Classic Playmates" (with a disclaimer that the women in question are now probably older than your mother). What surprised me was the low proportion of blondes from the early Playboy period. The breakdown is as follows: ------------------------------ Blonde hair: 3 women Connie Mason (1963) Allison Parks (1965) Helena Antonaccio (1969) ------------------------------- Brown hair: 6 women Laura Young (1962) Toni Ann Thomas (1963) Melinda Windsor (1966) Fran Gerard (1967) Cynthia Myers (1968) Crystal Smith (1971) ------------------------- Red/Brown hair: 2 women Merle Pertile (1962) Donna Michelle (1963) -------------------------- I'm not sure what conclusion I should draw from this. Have the tastes of American men changed over the past 30-40 years? Was the supply of potential playmates less blonde back in the 1960s?
