Report: Playboy To End Publishing Fully Nude Female Photos

NEW YORK (AP) – A new report says Playboy will no longer publish photos of nude women as part of a redesign effort.

Executives for the magazine company tell The New York Times that the change will take place in March 2016.

The paper reported Monday that the print edition of Playboy will still feature women in provocative poses, but they will no longer be fully nude.

Playboy editor Cory Jones contacted founder and current editor in chief Hugh Hefner recently about dropping nude photos from the print edition and he agreed.

The Times reported that playboy’s print circulation, once measured in millions, is now about 800,000, according to Alliance for Audited Media.

The represents a major shift for the magazine, which broke new ground when Hefner created it and featured Marilyn Monroe on its debut cover in 1953.
