Playboy to Eliminate Nude Photos from the Magazine in Redesign!

Playboy to eliminate nude photos from the magazine? Say it ain’t so?!

The iconic men’s magazine Playboy said Monday that it is planning to drop fully nude female photography from its pages in a magazine redesign. The news, first reported by The New York Times, is bound to send shock waves through the magazine industry, since Playboy has been a part of American popular culture since its debut in 1953. The Playboy website had already dropped nudes from its site in 2014.

The magazine’s redesign, which will reportedly take place next March, appears to be a reaction to the ever-growing accessibility of online pornography.
“You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free,” Playboy’s chief executive Scott Flanders told The Times. “It’s just passé at this juncture.”

The revolutionary publication, which was founded by Hugh Hefner, told The Times that “Playboy will still feature women in provocative poses” but no longer fully nude. Many on media have speculations that the removal of nude photography may help boost the magazine’s other known elements like the Playboy interview, comic strips and the legendary articles that men always loved to read.

How the redesign will ultimately impact the magazine and brand , time will only tell. I know a lot of grown men are already crying themselves to sleep over such a tremendous loss (sarcasm). Time to warm up the PornHub I guess gentlemen.
