When photos from Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy spread leaked online, it seemed logical that the issue’s sales would be negatively affected, despite the decision to release the issue earlier than expected. However, the January-February issue is not only flying off of newsstands, but also topping sales records, according to Hugh Hefner. Lindsay Lohan’s issue is packed with pages of advertisements, but which celebrity starred in the best-selling Playboy issue in recent years?
MagazineRadar, an advertisement sales information service, has confirmed with Business Insider what Hugh Hefner has already tweeted: ”The Lindsay Lohan January-February Double Issue is breaking sales records.”
The January/February 2012 issue sold 55% more ad pages than the same issue the year before and, with just over 49 ad pages, Lindsay Lohan’s is now the second best ad-selling Playboy issue in recent years.
Who holds the top title? It’s the reality television show star who has covered almost every other magazine title with ease: Kim Kardashian. Her December 2007 issue sold a whopping 56.9 ad pages.
On average, Playboy usually only sells 33.6 ad pages per issue since 2007. Besides Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan, their past celebrity covers have featured Anna Faris and Carmen Electra, selling 41.2 and 35.4 pages, respectively. Though these issues produced above-average ad sales, it wasn’t by much.
Will Hugh Hefner continue to persuade celebrities to pose for Playboy in order to keep advertising and circulation numbers afloat?
