In March of 2016, Playboy announced it would discontinue nudity in its magazines. The boneheaded move lasted only twelve months. Smooth move, Ex-Lax.
Playboy has announced it will bring back nudity, a year after it stopped printing pictures of naked women.
The magazine, which broke taboos in the 1950s with its provocative centrefolds, dropped nudity in March 2016 in an effort to broaden its appeal online and in print. However, its publisher has now reversed the decision and teased its March/April edition with the hashtag #NakedIsNormal.
Cooper Hefner, the magazine’s chief creative officer and son of founder Hugh Hefner, said removing nudity from Playboy was “entirely a mistake”.
No, Hugh Hefner walking around in pajamas all day is a mistake. Removing nudity from Playboy magazine was a war crime, and reparations better include pokey nipples and other assorted pink parts.
