Are People Really Freaking Out About Playboy No Longer Publishing Nude Pics In Their Magazine? Because They Shouldn’t Be

Starting next year, the publication long known for showcasing the female physique will no longer feature models in the nude, according to a report in The New York Times.

The decision apparently rose from a meeting with Playboy Editor-in-Chief Hugh Hefner and an editor at the magazine, amid discussions about a forthcoming update.

The Times’ Ravi Somaiya writes that now that Playboy has effectively accomplished its founding goal of normalizing the female body by introducing women to the world in their au naturel state, the magazine’s mission has been accomplished.

Playboy CEO Scott Flanders told The Times: “That battle has been fought and won … you’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free.”

Evidence of that can be found in a report by the Alliance for Audited Media, The Times notes, which says Playboy’s 5.6 million circulation in 1975 has taken a staggering fall to just 800,000.

 

 

If you logged on to see someone all hot and bothered about Playboy no longer publishing pictures of naked chicks, well then I hate to break it to you, but you’re in the wrong place my friend. Think about it, when’s the last time you actually looked at a Playboy magazine? I mean like really actually took time to sit down and thumb through the stuck together pages of a Playboy magazine? For me it was probably like eighth grade. Maybe high school when I snuck off to take a shit in someone’s parent’s house and happened upon dad’s stack of nudie books in a wicker basket next to the toilet, but outside of that, nothing. Playboy is dead. Not Playboy as a brand, but as an actual printed publication. That’s not their fault either. Everything is all digital these days. You can’t even log on to the Internet without seeing naked chicks or some sort of porn. Get sucked into a clickbait rabbit hole, porn. Type a backspace into your browser, porn. Hell sometimes I’ll even wake up with a follow from a random Twitter account and you know what it is? You guessed it, porn. We’re in a day and age when porn will literally seek us out when we’re not even looking. It sucks because Playboy magazine is an American icon synonymous with naked chicks dating back to the days of Marilyn Monroe, but unfortunately in this crazy world we live in sometimes American icons lose their luster. For example, fifty years ago Muhammad Ali was the king of world on now he probably couldn’t even write his own name with a pencil. His legacy will live on forever, but the World’s Greatest is a far cry from the glory days. Playboy Magazine is in the same boat. However I am confident that Hef will be able to turn this new Playboy into something that people will love to read because in addition to being the envy of every man ever, Hef is one of the savviest businessman and media moguls to ever live.

PS- I’ll leave you with this one final thought. Last night I was chopping it up with my roommate about this Playboy situation and I compared people who still use Playboy magazines to jerk off to Amish people, which is maybe the most accurate analogy in the history of analogies. You got all this wonderful, modern, electricity driven technology available at your fingertips (for free, might I add), and all you’re choosing to do is sit in the corner on your hand crafted wooden stool with a piece of parchment beating your meat by candlelight. What kind of archaic, dinosaur shit is that? I mean if that’s what you’re into, by all means continue to shoot your shot, just know that that’s weird in 2015.

    I have bought EVERY Playboy starting with the January 1966 issue. (50 years). I just got the March 2016 issue in the mail, after seeing it I canceled my subscription. This new magazine is boring, The pictures are frankly stupid, no jokes, no cartoons, it’s like a poor imitation of a magazine like GQ, well if I wanted a GQ that’s what I would buy. Whoever thought this up must have been drunk on “New Coke”.

      so sad, an Icon to all men is gone, just like Hugh will soon be. The world as we know it is a duller place for sure, hurray for all the unfortunate looking woman on planet earth.

    I think the “new” Playboy sucks, and they no longer have what was my favorite, the advisor, which now has been reduced to ONE question from a reader. My husband has cancelled his subscription.
