Playboy Drops Images of Naked Women

The famous Playboy magazine has recently announced that it will stop publishing images of naked women as part of its new concept because pornography just doesn’t sell anymore. The reason might seem a bit mindboggling at first, but if you stop to consider it, why would anyone buy adult magazines in print when they can simply watch a hot video online? It just doesn’t make sense anymore.

In the 1970s, Playboy regularly sold over 5 million copies and is now reduced to 800.000. It needs to redefine its aim and target, and while it will still feature beautiful women in provocative ways, it will completely remove total nudity from its pages by spring of next year. The decision came from the man himself, Hugh Hefner.

Scott Flanders, Playboy’s Chief Executive, reported the following: “You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.”

The change has already taken effect online, partly to allow all access to social media, increasing web traffic tremendously (from 4 million to 16 million!). Outside of any context, it seems like this could be the best thing to do, but if you stop to remember the fact that Playboy pioneered the adult industry and sex as we know it in the US, it’s more than a little bit odd to have it completely redefined.


Penthouse, one of Playboy’s competitors, tried to recover its sales numbers by turning full-blown adult, a decision that eventually ended the magazine. Playboy wants to avoid that possibility.

If you’re starting to feel nostalgic about this change, you can still enjoy the classic Playboy until March 2016, when the changes will take effect. Before that date, but especially afterwards, you are invited to enjoy sexy naked women on, your go-to place for live sex cams and kinky chat rooms.
