Playboy Magazine Will No Longer Feature Nudes

I’m not quite sure why this amazes me, but it does. I still remember an episode of “Designing Women” where Julia repeatedly ran her car into the corner “newspaper” stand when they started carrying “Playboy” magazine (I think). And now that’s coming to an end …

Well, there goes the neighborhood, if your neighborhood is magazines being known for the thing they’ve always been known for. Starting in March, after years of circulation struggles, Playboy magazine will no longer include fully nude photos of women, just images of women as naked as you’d see them in any other mainstream publication.

The change takes effect in March 2016.
