Is Playboy Pranking Us Or Is This True?
The New York Times reported yesterday that Playboy magazine will no longer print pictures of naked ladies. Yes, the publication will feature photos of scantily-clad women in provocative poses, but no more full nudes.
I know. It takes a minute to register.
However, when you think about it, with the wide-spread availability of nudity and porn for free all over the internet, there's not much call for the print version. The New York Times noted that back in 1975, circulation for Playboy was around 5.6 million, where it's now about 800 thousand. Apparently, Playboy stopped allowing nudity on their website back in August.
So, we really will read it just for the articles now?
