I didn't know they had nude photos. I bought it for the articles . . . but seriously they did some great publishing. E.g. in science fiction, they were the first to publish Ursula LeGuin and they published "The Fly." (But they did publish Ursula LeGuin as "U.K. LeGuin" because they didn't think men would take sci fi by a woman seriously.No more nudity in Playboy
Oddly, I saw this last night on the NYT website just minutes after it appeared and there were NO comments. This AM I went back via your link and there were 342 comments! Interestingly, the reader comments are more compelling than the original article and its seven photos. Opinions about the magazine, both the historical Playboy and the current Playboy, are all over the map. Opinions are also very divided on this new business direction plan, the idea of eliminating nudes from Playboy. I was shocked to find that Playboy now has only 800,000 subscribers.
I have not seen an issue of Playboy since the 1990's, so I have no idea what the magazine has been doing over the past twenty years or more. I really don't care either, one way or the other, but I think this new business idea might actually help them gain some subscribers, just by eliminating the nudes.
