Playboy is getting Naked again

It seems those articles aren’t the only thing people are looking at inside the pages of Playboy.

Just one year after deciding the internet has plenty of nudes, the 63-year-old legendary men’s magazine is bringing back nude models in its upcoming issue.  playboy1

The move comes four months after Cooper Hefner, the son of founder Hugh Hefner and an outspoken critic of the move to ban nude models, was installed as chief creative officer last October.

Issues published under the no-nudes policy featured both scantily clad models and could-be naked women with strategic parts of their body covered up.

But that will all change with the March/April issue now hitting newsstands. The issue trumpets the change with a cover headline: “Naked is normal.”

“I’ll be the first to admit the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake,” Cooper Hefner tweeted Monday. “Nudity was never the problem, because nudity isn’t a problem. Today, we’re taking our identity back and rediscovering who we are.”
