Why the names of cities? It makes the ad look like one for a hotel or boutique chain.

Two guess,
Either they were for there series of clubs? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playboy_Club#Locations_and_opening_dates

Or they had offices in those locations for publication purposes.

Regional editions,with targeted ads and variable rates. This used to be pretty standard for pricey national publications.

this piece refers to regional editions

In this world, everyone wears the same colour of swimwear. Except for The Man Who Reads Playboy!

Ooh a trade ad! I wonder where this ran.

Also, 8 or more air trips. Even in 2012 that still sounds like a lot to me :/

I'm pretty sure this actually appeared in the magazine itself. They had a whole series of these ads encouraging their readers that reading Playboy set them apart from the rest. It probably helped boost subscriptions, I'm guessing.

How many 18-year-olds were taking eight or more trips per year? I guess if his parents work for the airlines.

Is it wrong that when I read "A man who goes out of his way to find that special place" I thought
"What, the G-spot?"
