No More Naked Women in Playboy Magazine

Playboy magazine is to stop publishing images of naked women as part of its redesign.
The decision was apparently taken last month at a meeting attended by Playboy founder and current editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner. Its US owners say the internet has made nudity outdated, and pornographic magazines are no longer so commercially viable. Playboy’s circulation has dropped from 5.6 million in the 1970s to the current 800,000, official figures show.

Magazine executives admitted that Playboy – which was founded in 1953 – had been overtaken by the changes it pioneered. However, the magazine will still feature women in provocative poses – though not fully nude.

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.
