Playboy Magazine Brings Back Nudity, Declaring Naked Is Normal

Playboy Magazine is bringing back naked models, ending a one-year-old ban on nudity that actually made magazine famous. Playboy chief creative officer and the son of Hugh Hefner, Cooper Hefner announced on Monday that “we’re taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are.” #NakedIsNormal

He further added: “Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn’t a problem.” The 63-year-old magazine had banished naked women from its print edition because it felt the content had become old-fashioned in the era of online porn.

The magazine’s record circulation was 7.2 million in November 1972, but began to decline in the early 1990s and was on average around 700,000 per issue last year. Interestingly, this move had been applauded by women’s rights activists. Playboy has to figure out how to attract the younger audience that has grown up in a digital era.

Husni, a journalism professor at the University of Mississippi said that “Playboy and the idea of non-nudity is sort of an oxymoron. The people who grew up with Playboy magazine are starting to fade away so they will have to figure out what the millennial generation wants in the 21st century if they are going to survive.”

The next month issue will feature topless “Playmate” Elizabeth Elam as Miss March 2017. Pamela Anderson was the last person to unclothed it all for the magazine in its January/February 2016 edition.
