      WHEREAS, on September 26, 2001, Playboy.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation

      WHEREAS, the Company and the Holder have determined that it is advisable
and in their best interests to amend the Note to extend the Maturity Date to
July 1, 2003, and to provide that beginning on July 1, 2002, the Company shall
pay interest to the Holder monthly, all as provided herein;

      NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and other good and
valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby

      payable as described herein, the unpaid balance of the principal amount
      shall accrue interest at a rate equal to eight percent (8.0%) per annum.
      Interest shall be payable monthly on the first day of each month, or if
      such date is a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday under the laws of the
      State of New York, on the next succeeding business day in New York,
      beginning on July 1, 2002. The Company and the Holder hereby acknowledge
      and agree that the amount of all accrued but unpaid interest hereon from
      the date of this Note until July 1, 2002 is $308,888.89, and the Company
      shall pay such amount to the Holder on July 1, 2002. Interest shall be
      computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months. All
      payments received by the Holder hereunder will be applied first to costs
      of collection and fees, if any, then to interest, and the balance to
      principal.

2.    Section 2 of the Note is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with
      the following:

      Company. If any payment due hereunder shall become due on a Saturday,

      payment shall be made on the next succeeding business day in New York.
