Jenny McCarthy, who calls her new Playboypictorial "a salute to the MILFs," doesn't have any qualms about posing nude even though she's a mom to 10-year-old Evan.
"I think he can find a lot worse available on the Internet these days," she tells PEOPLE. "I think people make such a big deal sometimes about it, when I feel like it just comes down to how you raise your child and how you explain things to your kid."
As for how she'll talk about the spread with her son, she says, "Evan and I will have that conversation someday."
Although McCarthy is pleased with the work she's done in her life, you won't see any evidence of it displayed on her walls at home.
"I don't have one [magazine] cover up, period," she says, calling it "hilarious" that anyone would decorate their home with photos of themselves. "I mean, I don't even have myRolling Stone cover up. It's like, who wants to look at themselves? I don't. Seriously, the only picture I have up of myself is one of a shark eating Evan and me."
