Playboy to Drop Nudity!!! What??? - October 13, 2015, 04:27 PM

Can't believe nobody posted this? This is crazy!

Playboy has announced that starting March 2016 they will stop publishing images of nude women.

Expert: Playboy has a 'Rumpelstiltskin problem'

You can't fight the Internet when it comes to porn so why bother trying? This might open the sale of their magazine to more places than it is sold at now, so probably a good business move on their part.

That's what their plan is. Expansion. Still crazy IMO

Getting your hands on your first issue of Playboy as a kid is like an American Male right of passage.

These Millenials are ruining everything. They'll never know the experience of hiding well worn, ratted up pages of a skin mag in various places around the house and outside like Geo Caching.

Or the simple surprise and pleasure of finding an old water logged copy tossed aside on some back trail where the teenagers would drink beer and smoke. It was like picking up a copy of the ancient scrolls. You'd gingerly turn each page as not to have them disintegrate in your fingers or have the print stick and rip off.


Well, Playboy RIP.
If I wanted to read GQ or Esquire, I'd just go buy GQ or Esquire.

A final nod to Miss October 2015



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

New stories will be how browsing history was hidden, parental controls were bypassed, files were hidden and traded on USB sticks, etc. It's the same, just different.

When I was 12 I used to hide my "porn" in C:\Doom\Stuff. I played a lot of Doom and downloaded extra levels, sounds, and mods (when DLC was free). My mom still found my stash while cleaning out the hard drive. Sucked. I lost a lot of good chicks downloaded from the local BBS.

Look at the height of Maxim. It came out of nowhere and only has PG-13 pictures. It's available everywhere, appeals to a wide demographic, and has a lot of A-list celebs. There are some chicks who would never pose nude for Playboy anyway, but maybe they'd show some extra skin now? Here's hoping.

I agree change is sometimes sad, but hopefully Playboy can continue to use their powers for good.

They'll come back around once all their subscriptions drop. What about their Playboy channel. There is nothing to watch if they drop the nudity lol.

I hid mine in a Warcraft 2 folder. Never got caught. It took forever to download a picture back then. A webpage today would probably make a computer say f it, I quit, and turn itself off.

At 12, I could have cared less. I was getting nude women and boobies!

I'm from the era of this:


Where if you turned the fine-tuning knob just right - it could partially unscramble the Playboy channel.
I mean if you were .01 milliliter off, you'd be hosed. All you'd get is a colored wavy line and stretched images, but you spend 15-20 minutes with the volume turned way down trying to get it just right so you could get your boobie reward.

Everything looks like porn when it's scrambled.

So nudes are coming back. They have claimed they made a mistake, ROFL!

What disturbs me though is the comment "Playboy will always be a lifestyle brand focused on men's interests, but as gender roles continue to evolve in society, so will we"

We done goofed

They tried the none nude route to appease people, the same people that had no intention of buying their magazine anyway and as a result pissed of their actual customers. This right here is a last ditch effort to win back those consumers.
