Playboy magazine to stop publishing pictures of naked women

Playboy magazine will stop publishing pictures of fully nude women because the ubiquity of internet pornography has made such images “passé”, the company’s chief executive has revealed.

In an interview with the New York Times, CEO Scott Flanders said founder Hugh Hefner, 89, had agreed with a proposal to stop publishing images of naked women from March 2016.

The redesigned Playboy, 62 years after it was launched by Hefner, will still feature a Playmate of the Month and provocative pictures of women, but they will be rated PG-13 (a rating that cautions that material may be inappropriate for children under 13).

Flanders told the NYT: “You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.”

It's always been about the stories anyway.

The magazine will disappear in a couple of years anyway.

Never though Hef would cave to being PC

I guess we will see who was lying when they said :I read Playboy for the articles." I dont see the rag lasting a year without the pics. They had some of the most beautiful people in the world gracing their pages.

It did it's job of corrupting our minds

Nobody really likes women anymore because of it.

They are sex items only
