Playboy is Bringing Nudity Back Following Failed No-Nude Experiment | Heat Street

Playboy is known for two things: its articles and its nude women—and it turns out nobody really cares about the former unless it’s written by Hunter S. Thompson.Evidently, the management at Playboy took the joke about “reading Playboy for the articles” too seriously and did away with all the magazine’s nude content in October 2015 in an effort to rebrand the magazine as something less objectifying to women and more social justice-friendly. Last year, the magazine even featured a fully-clothed model in a hijab for the first time in its 50-year history.When it decided to “dress up”, Playboy Enterprises CEO Scott Flanders said that the political and sexual climate of 1953, when Hugh Hefner first founded the magazine, bore little resemblance to today. The magazine had lost much of its audience  — who typically bought it for the porn— to free and far more explicit porn on the Internet. It was, as Fortune noted, “buried by the very culture it created.”
