(Newser) – Levi Johnston's Playgirl photos have been out since Saturday, giving experts in the nude male form time to review the 19-year-old's debut. Us collects their responses:

  • "The only problem—his hairy armpits!" says a Chippendales dancer. "He should also focus on his diet to help him get a bit harder. But he has good hair and a great face. He's definitely Chippendales material."

  • "I think it's hard to get a 19-year-old to do 'sexy' and really get it," says Playgirl writer Jamye Waxman. "I feel like you really develop your sexual energy and attitude in your 20s and 30s, so Levi has a way to go before he's completely comfortable in his body."
  • "He has such a lumberjack-like persona in clothes that I expected to see more of that—including the log—in the Playgirl pics," says the editor of the LGBT magazine the Advocate. "Instead, we see a Levi who's playing a coy game of peek-a-boo. This is certainly no Northern Exposure."
