    let's be honest,
    in a world where Swedish midget, circus porn is a click away?
    how many decades has it been since you even picked up a Playboy issue?

    Playboy longs to be relevant again. They are only surviving due to licensing revenues. Hef had to give up controlling interest to keep the house and his lifestyle.
    The brand has suffered and no longer has any celebrity icon to help market their products. The magazine has been losing money for years. I don't see how dropping
    the naked ladies will resurrect the brand. Sure they will become available at the local grocery store along side GQ, but nothing about the product is relevant anymore.
    At least the naked girls played to the brand history and nostalgia, but I guess nostalgia doesn't make money.

    I always got the Braille version... I was just glad when they got rid of the staples in those.

    That's a bummer. Anyone know of other magazines to see pics of naked women?

    They would be better off giving up publishing magazines.

    Predict that Playboy mag will be gone in two years.
    The Only reason to get a Playboy was for the pictorials...

    Respect. I also cannot get my rocks off to stills anymore but...... this along with 6:5 BJ and selfie sticks definitely signals that the end of the world is nigh.

    When I was in Journalism school there were two magazines we were required to read: Playboy and The New Yorker.

    Winds of change for another piece of Americana...first all-day breakfast at McDonald's and now this news!
    The old-timer that tended the dump once gave my dad a box of Field & Stream magazines. My dad gave the box to me. Only the top 3 or so where actually Field & Stream mags!
    My dad and I look back on that story and laugh. (My mom doesn't!)

    They took nudity out of their website and their traffic shot way up. There are other racy mens mags out there without nudity doing well. Playboy has a better journalistic track record going into that space.
