It’s time to level the playing field. Several Dancing With the Stars contestants have appeared in Playboy, including Season 12 dancer Kendra Wilkinson and the show’s current co-host Brooke Burke. And we all know by now that Karina Smirnoff is about to be the first DWTS pro dancer to get nekkid for the mag.

But what about the guys? The double standard has to stop, which means some DWTS stars and pros are going to have to take one for the team and pose for Playgirl. Sorry, fellas, but fair is fair!

A DWTS insider spoke to PopEater and discussed the idea of pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough or Mark Ballas stripping down.

"I'm sure Maks would jump at the chance to appear in Playgirl, but I doubt Derek or Mark would ever do it," the source laughed. "However, I doubt the show would ever sign off on that. Even if Maks has plenty to show off!"

Go for it, Maks! We’d definitely buy that issue.

But why wouldn’t the show be OK with Maks posing in Playgirl if they were OK with his ex-fiancee, Karina, posing in Playboy? And, excuse us, but what about Dmitry Chaplin? Never forget the Russian hottie on the list of men who need to continue taking off their shirts and whatever else is handy. It’s just about equality! Or whatever argument works.
