Playboy Magazine Set To Stop Running Photos Of Fully Nude Women

Playboy1

(PCM) Beginning in March of 2016, it has been revealed that Playboy magazine will no longer run photos of fully nude women in their publication. They will instead feature women is provocative poses, however they will not be completely nude.

The change comes at a time when pornography is readily available in both full color and high definition all over the internet so the need to find it in print publications has become less necessary.

Playboy magazine shared a huge part in creating the sexual revolution that occurred back in the late 1950’s into 1960’s, as they brought full-on nudity out from behind closed doors and into the living rooms (or bathrooms) of people across the nation.

While up until now the magazine has always featured full nudity, the Playboy magazine website banned nudity back in August of 2014. Playboy claims that when they made the move to ban nudity on their website they saw nearly a 400% increase in monthly unique visitors.

When speaking to the New York Times, Playboy CEO Scott Flanders said “The political and sexual climate of 1953 … bears almost no resemblance to today. We are more free to express ourselves politically, sexually and culturally today, and that’s in large part thanks to Hef’s heroic mission to expand those freedoms.”

The Times also reports that when the idea to drop the nudes from the print magazine was brought up to Playboy founder Hugh Hefner he agreed with the decision. There will also be a few other changes made to the magazine in addition to dropping the nudes. The magazine will be a bit larger in size and feature a heavier more quality paper.
