She appeared in Playboy numerous times and was the last centerfold to go fully nude in the January/February 2016 edition of the magazine, but now Pamela Anderson argues in a new op-ed that, well, “porn is for losers.”

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Thursday titled “Take the Pledge: No More Indulging Porn,” co-written with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Ms. Anderson used the emergence of a second Anthony Weiner sexting scandal as their hook for calling readers “to understand that porn is for losers — a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of health sexuality.”

Of course, losers still have money, some of them even have a hundred of it to spend on a piece of history.

More than two months ago, Ms. Anderson took to Twitter to offer fans an autographed copy of her last naked centerfold for a few hundred bucks. In a June 20 tweet, she advertised a “Signed and personalized copy of Playboy magazine Jan/Feb 2016,” adding a link to her website’s store. Ms. Anderson tweeted a similar post on Aug. 26, with only a photo of her Playboy cover shot and a link to the page.

Accessed by The Washington Times on September 1, the page promotes a signed and personalized January/February 2016 edition of Playboy for $500. Proceeds benefit the Pamela Anderson Foundation.

“After you click purchase, you will be ask to enter the name of the person to whom you would like the magazine signed,” the page instructs potential buyers. “Detailed messages are not available.”

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight last December, Ms. Anderson had a decidedly positive view of Playboy founding publisher Hugh Hefner, and of the distinction of being the last-ever naked centerfold for the magazine.

“He’s such a sweetheart and he’s just been such a big part of my life. And people have been asking me over the last year, ‘Would you ever pose for Playboy again?’ I’m like, ‘They’re never going to ask… I mean I’m sure they’re sick of me,’” Ms. Anderson told Entertainment Tonight. “So when Hef asked, I couldn’t help myself.”

“I had a rough few years where I felt a little insecure, ‘cause you know everyone’s getting older,” Anderson told ET. “I thought, ‘My gosh, I miss the Playboy days.’ It was so glamorous, it was so chivalrous, there’s so many people there that were so smart, and activism, and art. You know, I just kind of miss that whole crowd and us being these little giggling girls kind of running around the mansion half naked and trying to get everybody’s attention.”
