Playboy often bills itself as America’s most intelligent smut magazine and Nabokov was certainly one of America’s most intelligent smut authors.
Did not Nabokov invite just this description by his bizarre collusion with Playboy? If "Lolita" is a truly moral work, what was he playing at? To Nabokovians it may betoken some kind of amused sophisticion, but does it not demonstrate a moral confusion?
