INSANE NEWS: Playboy Magazine Will Stop Showing Nude Photos In 2016

The world has gone completely mad. In an effort to give Playboy magazine an extra push into mainstream, the publication has decided to stop publishing images of nude women after their March 2016 redesign. Why? Because apparently they can't provide the masses what everyone is really wanting when it comes to porn. Aka, the really filthy sh*t. Playboy is too classy for that so they're going the other route by merely publishing photos of women in provocative positions, but never nude.

Long story short, this is insane.

It's insane because Playboy had that one edge that other magazines didn't; nude ladies. Sure, people are going to get their porn from other sources, but as far as a magazine with great written content, the nudes put Playboy over the edge. But then again, those nudes are what's keeping people from buying a copy and reading it on a crowded airplane or in the office.

So long, old friend.

The company's chief executive Scott Flanders admits that porn has beat Playboy at their own game and it's time to switch up their playbook. “That battle has been fought and won. You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.”

Even though the nudes will be removed from Playboy altogether (Gah, it hurts), I doubt this will help the sales of Playboy go up because the name is already tainted. I don't think you're going to see Playboy magazines hanging out in your dentist's office anytime soon because, well, it's Playboy and most people are either big fans or not at all. And a lack of nudes won't change that. I love Playboy but if I saw it in my grandfather's bathroom, nudes or no nudes, I'd be a little skeezed out. Everyone knows you hide Playboys in the garage!

So look at all of the naked playmates you can, folks. The term "end of an era" is always thrown out there, but in this case, it's truly the end of an era which has existed since 1953. Is it too late for them to change their mind?
