2004.02.17 Gals of TechTV Goes Playboy...

DeCloah Blog - More on the Women of TechTV Playboy Poll

As most have heard, our ladies of TechTV had the opportunity to be featured on Playboy.com and soon you'll be able to vote for your favorite TechTV Gal (Laura Swisher, Melanie Kim, Morgan Webb, Cat Schwartz and Sarah Lane).

Right now, the poll isn't available but we'll be keeping an eye out for it. Check out the link if you want to see the pics taken of our girls.

Wow! Can you imagine Morgan posing for Playboy.com that would be awesome . We have to spread the word and have all the fans vote for her a bunch.

Man...the possibilities.
The winner will be asked to pose, but can still decline the offer. Will those photos only be on playboy.com (and do you have to sign up to playboy.com to view them) or also come out in an actual issue? I'll look at whoever it is that wins and decides to pose.
Morgan Webb posing...some things are better left to the imagination, BUT I won't complain if she does. Supportive of Miss Webb.

By the way, I think you can vote multiple times. I just tried for fun, but I've given Morgan five votes so far and there's nothing on the site preventing me for doing it more.

Morgan has GOT to win this poll. Comeon, all you Morgan fanboys. Vote and vote often.

>By the way, I think you can vote multiple times.

No, you can't. They're not that stupid. Especially for a poll with girls well known in a community populated by hackers.

That's what I was thinking.
Doesn't hurt to try it anyways.
More for Morgan.

Ahh since i am a hacker loyal to miss webb i will take the oppurtunity to change the results of the poll. lets see...? morgan 20 million other ugly chicks 0. well sarah is ok but nvm ya shes hot but not as hot as morgan.

The poll can be easily hacked. It doesn't track you or stop you from voting over and over. Take a look at the HTML source code. A simple script could be written to drop in millions of votes for Morgan. My guess is that it's already been done and the Tech TV girl with the best hackers for fans will win. Morgan is of course the easy favorite(Remember Madonna) but Sarah has Kevin Rose who probaly already has a voting hack running.

Honestly, I dun think Morgan would pose if she won. She's waaay too against the whole "objectification of women" thing. It be like a Jewish person winning a pork chop and being asked to eat it.

Posted by: Shawn Liu (from at February 18, 2004 08:41 AM

You have to aim for Playboy and be happy if she lands on Maxim.

Posted by: dhopkins (from at February 18, 2004 09:50 AM

I for one hope she wins but doesn't pose...I think she's above that.

Posted by: Phaedrus (from at February 18, 2004 10:51 AM

Yeah. Morgan winning would be great, but she doesn't have to pose. I'd be happy for her if *cough when cough* she wins. She's probably not the most innocent woman there is, but I bet she wouldn't want guys to objectify her more than they already do.
If any of the TechTV ladies did pose, I'd say either Cat or Laura would. Cat's been seen topless already and Laura has been topless on Unscrewed (black boxed obviously).
Support for Morgan.

Posted by: Winged VoX (from at February 18, 2004 07:00 PM

I agree; I hope she wins, but doesn't pose. I think I would lose a lot of respect for Morgan. Personally, I don't think she would go through with it unless she had a say in how much skin is shown.

I think Laura Swisher was wearing a tube top during that cut scene. The black box was huge. Did you notice the people in backround were going about their business. There would be quite a crowd if Laura was topless. Do you think she would do that in public?

objectify my ass! I hope she does pose for playboy nude and you know you do too! none of you would lose anything but a few seconds from spanking it if she posed and you god damn sure know it so stop blowin smoke up peoples ass trying to convince us (yourselves is more like it) that you are "above looking at women as sex objects" because noone believes it anyways. so shut the hell up and get a clue. and if you really do "hope she doesn't pose for playboy nude" then it is time you admit to yourself that you are a fag! come out of the closet!

ppl that protest faggots the most are almost always guilty themselves in trying to hide it =)

Posted by: stfu (from at March 16, 2004 04:35 PM

Man i gotta see those big wondeful bouncy boobies, i hope she poses

Posted by: richard c (from at March 16, 2004 05:00 PM

if she poses i don't know what i'll do with myself... I would definitely set it to one of my desktop wallpapers. It's nice having 4+ with linux :D

Posted by: aim: jason1nk (from at March 17, 2004 01:05 AM

If she poses I'll print it out and then tape it to my pillow so I can bust a nut all over her tits.
