NFT: Playboy going back to nudity

DanMetroMan : 2/13/2017 8:57 pm
After a year of covering up, Playboy is getting back to its roots. With the digital release of its March-April issue on Monday, the 63-year-old magazine has returned to publishing photographs of naked women.

The cover of the new issue features model Elizabeth Elam and is emblazoned with the headline “Naked is normal.”

Cooper Hefner, Playboy‘s chief creative officer and the son of magazine founder Hugh Hefner, said in a statement that it was “a mistake” to ever get rid of nudity, which has long been a pillar of the brand’s identity.

Print may be dead, but it still is where the money is for most newspapers and magazines. Print revenue still vastly exceeds digital -- it's been falling, quickly, and digital is growing, but digital started with a very small number and print with a much larger number.
How many genders will it recognize?

There's 31 ( according to Beez) recognized in NY. Thankfully, there's still only 2 bathrooms available in NC. Do I have to worry about not unseeing Bruce Jenner or can we count on good olé' T&A?
It was a stupid decision in the first place...

Did they think they would get the mothers and children to read the freaking thing by taking the tits out of the equation?

In the news tomorrow, the NHL will announce that they are going to allow fighting again due to the huge success of the MMA....

Apparently people love tits and violence and it has been that way forever
Our long national nightmare is over.

When you subscribe it's for the articles.

Pics too, but it's one of those jokes that have some truth to it. :D
I never understood the change

If young men, or women for that matter, wanted to buy a magazine that featured scantily clad women and a smattering of articles, wouldn't they just re-up their Maxim subscription?

Also, Maxim is still a thing. Go figure.

If the 63 year old woman were Christie Brinkley, I don't think anyone would complain.

Cruzin ... not according to ME! I was just the messenger.
And the most surprising thing, to me,  
Beezer : 2/14/2017 12:27 pm : link
about this thread topic is that ... I had no idea Playboy had even stopped showing nudity.

So, what the hell WAS Playboy in the interim?

An upscale version of Maxim, I guess.
there was a thread on it  
fkap : 2/14/2017 12:46 pm : link
ignorance is no excuse.

doesn't really make a difference either way. anyone with a computer has access to quality photos or articles. Maybe returning the photos makes it a little more likely that people will subscribe.
Must have missed that thread. lol

once you've seen the things a man has seen on the internet, its hard to go back to masturbating to tasteful nude photography

some day's, yes. some day's, no.

you make the call.

I think Paper Magazine

does what Playboy should have done with their nude/semi-nude photo spreads. Get provocative celebrities/models and make the pics more modern and artistic. Like was said previous, anyone can find hot naked women doing all kinds of stuff on the interwebs. You have to do something different to stand out in the eye candy space. Like Miley rolling in mud or Kim K. popping the champagne.

Yeah, neither of those are anything I'd ever want to see.
