La Virgen de Guadalupe, Tex[t]-Mex, Mexico, and Playboy Magazine

Leave it to the editors of Playboy Magazine, Mexico, to conspire to up the ante on "Mexican" as a synecdoche/proxy for sexuality; they've done so with a parody of the Virgin Mary, actually María Florencia Onori, on the cover of their latest issue! The Huffington Post is on it here; Guanabee here. The entire photoshoot, not safe for work or Mass, for that matter, are here--a select out-take from that batch, appears here below:


  1. O heavenly Mother, bless me with your bounty...

  2. Cocino; for that, were I a faithful priest, I would have given you 10 Hail Marys in the confessional if their impact on you would have been spiritual in lieu of the predictable arousal!
