!! OMG, the end of an era! Playboy Magazine says their magazine will no longer include nude women !!


This makes us sad! A recent redesign at Playboy will force it to stop publishing images of naked women! NOOOOOO! Think of all the people out there who’s only dream is to pose for Playboy!

The decision was apparently taken last month at a meeting attended by Playboy founder and current editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner.
Magazine executives admitted that Playboy – which was founded in 1953 – had been overtaken by the changes it pioneered, according to the New York Times.

“That battle has been fought and won,” Playboy chief executive Scott Flanders is quoted as saying by the newspaper.
“You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passe at this juncture.”

Gone, too, are the days when interviews with figures of the stature of Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X and Jimmy Carter made Playboy so culturally and politically significant, says the BBC’s Nick Bryant in New York.

Playboy’s website has already banished nudity, partly to give it access to social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. And its popularity has soared, with web traffic quadrupling.

A brand long synonymous with salaciousness is cleaning up its act, and all with the blessing – apparently – of the 89-year-old Mr Hefner, our correspondent adds.

I guess it’s good that Playboy is evolving and changing with the times and won’t end up hanging out with Blockbuster, smoking behind the gas station someplace. But what about PLAYGIRL!? Don’t even get us started…
