Playboy to Ditch Nude Photos, Still Exist Somehow

by at .

Try to imagine Kim Kardashian without giant boobs. Or Taylor Swift without her guitar. What about Justin Bieber with a shirt on?

Or, as crazy as it sounds, Playboy Magazine without photos of naked woman inside. Totally insane, right?

Actually... not so much.

Hugh Hefner and company decided during a meeting last month that the publication will no longer feature fully nude woman, with Playboy chief executive Scott Flanders explaining the decision thusly to The New York Times:

"You are now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it's just passe at this juncture."

It's true. Heck, you are one click away from seeing NUDE PHOTOS right now on The Hollywood Gossip.

Playboy does assure readers that women will still be featured in "provocative poses," but they will not be donning their birthday suits in 2016.

Moreover, there will still be a Playmate of the Month, but the photos of her will be “PG-13,” the magazine's content manager, Cory Jones, says.

It has not yet been decided whether there will still be a centerfold.

Playboy has been in existence since 1953 and had a circulation of 5.6 million in the 1970s. But that figure has plummeted to 800,000 these days.

Call us crazy, but LESS nudity may not help that number grow.
