Pornoween in Florida

from www.sunsentinel-com When did Halloween become so inextricably tied to sex? How did we go from Mary Tyler Moore quickening the pulse with a mildly clingy witch costume to the Shore Club overrun by Playboy Playmates, Penthouse Pets at Pangaea, the Porn Star Ball at Opium, Tera Patrick at Cameo and a party channeling Dirk Diggler’s Boogie Nights escapades at the Awarehouse…

And if women go into the costume store seeking to look like a Playboy centerfold, what does a Playboy centerfold do for a costume?

“I don’t really dress up for Halloween,” said Hope Dworaczyk, Playboy’s Miss April. Heresy.

“I know… It used to be a night to be scary and now it’s all about being sexy and adult fantasy… I just never think of anything I want to be,” she said.

Dworaczyk, the host of E!’s Inside Fashion, a runway model and actress, is in town on more serious matters, promoting a Macanudo cigar contest that gets the winner $1 million and a trip to Vegas with Dworaczyk and two other Playmates (go to )…..

You won’t find the Los Angeles-based Dworaczyk at the Shore Club Playboy party, however you might find her at one of her favorite South Florida haunts, including any of the restaurants at the Fontainebleau, the hotel’s Liv nightclub, and the South Beach hotspot Set.
