Default Playboy Is Doing What????

http://www.playboy.com/articles/no-n...ign=launchpost

"As you may have heard, Playboy is going to be non-nude starting with the March 2016 issue, which actually comes out in the month of February, because that’s how magazines roll. This means the models, celebrities and, yes, Playmates will not be naked for the first time since our founder Hugh Hefner laid out the first issue in 1953.

The question everyone will likely be asking is, “Why?” Playboy has been a friend to nudity, and nudity has been a friend to Playboy, for decades. The short answer is: times change.

When Hef created Playboy, he set out to champion personal freedom and sexual liberty at a time when America was painfully conservative. See: any popular movie, TV show or song from that era. Nudity played a role in the conversation about our sexual liberties, and over 62 years the country made great strides politically and culturally."

that might boost sales for a month or 2 'just to check out the new format,' but they are essentially done. Just a way to create a temporary buzz.

It will be interesting to see how this works out. Why buy a playboy when you can type in "nude chicks" and see millions of nude chicks? Look at the attention that the Sports Illustrated gets every year. I kind of like seeing women in something that leaves a little to the imagination.

because they didn't keep up with the times, or thought they were immune.

Kodak

So Playboy is going to now be the near-beer of nudie mags?

Guess I'm going to switch to Hustler because I like a little liver with my spread eagle.

Not sure XRX fits that mold. They have been re-making themselves.

So sales are down and they decide to do away with probably the one thing that 99% of their subscribers bought the magazine for in the first place?

Makes sense to me....

Makes perfect sense. With a click, you can see a picture or video of every sexual act/fetish imaginable. For free. If they can rebrand as a Maxim for the 35-60 yr old crowd, they may survive.
