No Nudity in Playboy Magazine!!!!!!! Hef…..say it ain’t so!!!!!

mmmmmm

OMFG…..the staple of nudity is folding. And I’m not talking about that pesky staple in their centerfolds that’s always in the wrong place when you’re ogling a naked women in Playboy’s centerfold.

'I don't know why they call them men's mags when they're full of women'

The iconic men’s magazine which for years has focused on nudity, as well as some really great articles, which, as we men all know, is the only reason we read Playboy in the first place, yep, for the articles, is dropping all nudity as of next March.

Further proof that Hugh Hefner has gone senile.

According to Playboy Enterprises CEO Scott Flanders in an interview with the New York Times this past week, the reason the magazine has decided to drop nudity is because “you’re one step click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passe’ at this juncture.”

mmm

Yes….even snakes are into nudity

Meaning that the Internet has taken over as the number one place to find nudity and just about everything else related to sex. Including lots and lots of photos of naked women. Which means we men can no longer use that line, “I read Playboy for the articles.”

Now, it has to be, altered a bit. Like, “Oh, sorry dear, I clicked on the wrong site and got this photo of Kim Kardashian completely naked….um….yeah that’s it, I was searching for some really good deals on cantaloupes and melons and her photo just popped up…heh  heh, and um….er……”

Now for me, being up in years, waaaaay up in years, Playboy was and has been a part of my life since I was a mere teenager ripping off copies of the magazine at my local malt shop/spa store back in the late 50’s.

Ah yes....the very 1st Playboy Magazine cover featuring Marilyn Monroe....

Ah yes….the very 1st Playboy Magazine cover, (December 1953)  featuring Marilyn Monroe….every teenager my age wanted to, and possibly ripped off

So this non-nudity decision comes as a big shock to me. Not because I still look at Playboy for the naked women and…um…OK OK….yeah, I STILL look at the naked women BUT, I “DO” actually read the great articles the magazine has. Honest!

But, that said, it’s nice to read those articles as well as ogling naked women too. After all, I look at it as a commercial break between articles. Cept THESE commercials I actually watch….as in naked women.

And the interviews as well as articles mentioned in the AP story were by some pretty notable people so ya can’t say the magazine solely depended on people buying the magazine just for the nudity. Writers such as John Updike, Jack Kerouac, Norman mailer, Ray Bradbury and Joseph Heller.

Some groundbreaking interviews with Fidel Castro, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, and Bob Dylan also made for some interesting reading.

My favorite parts of Playboy, the cartoons, the “Playboy Advisor,” “Raw Data,” and the “Dear Playboy” letters.

And  um….(sigh) the naked women.pby1

BUT….that said, which I just did, (that part about the naked women) it wasn’t so appealing to me anymore as it was, say, 30 or 40 years ago when I was a lot younger.

Why you ask? Well I’ll tell ya. At my age, and I speak for myself, younger women are really not a turn on for me. I mean they’re nice to look at but they don’t float my boat, so to speak, which I just did…..again.

Older more mature women around my age float the ol boat now. And Playboy does not highlight the true reality that as their readers aged, perhaps they might enjoy more mature women in their magazines. Say like Helen Merrin and Sophia Loren to name a couple.

So I guess, as the CEO stated, if ya want to find nudity it’s just a click away and you actually can find nudity to suit your tastes. Including Helen Merrin and Sophia Loren. And many more.

I restith my case

Helen Merrin…..I restith my case

Um…not that I go searching for that, but, many times accidentally (cough) come across photos of more mature women such as Helen and Sophia. Did I say by accident….oh….ok.

Do I subscribe to Playboy. Sure. Always have and most likely always will. Even if they cut out the nudity. AND, for the first time in my life, as well as many other red-blooded men, can actually THEN state we DO read it for the articles.

How ironic is THAT!

mmmmm

Another reason we men buy Playboy
