A Sign That Times Are Changing, And Not for The Better


Playboy to stop publishing pictures of scantily clad ladies in their magazine because… porn is just too darned available on the Internet.

So sad. Honestly I don’t know why I am sad as the one and only Playboy magazine I ever bought (illegally) was back in 1980 when I was 14.

One of the coolest days of my life!

Thank you greedy old Asian merchant lady, wherever you are!

  • Awwww….

      Where did you grow up?
      Payton Place, Canada?
      That would have been scandalous in my hometown, unless your friend’s dad was some kind of heavy equipment operator, or a Mafia hit man, or something like that.

      • Actually his parents were very progressive, they knew we fondled those pages;)

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          That was gosh darned progressive for back then.
          No, those kinds of people didn’t exist where I was.
          Not at all.

            I lived in a town that had was just outside the gates of a military base and we were the closest town to a major resource extraction facility. So lots of soldiers and lots of rig hands.

          • Heh;)

            Just saying that the store I worked in sold a lot of adult magazines and some of them were catering to the “specialty” market. Till I worked there I had no idea some people were into those sorts of things.

          • The were fun.

        My first job (other than working in my parents restaraunt) was at a store were I had to stock the “special” magazine rack. That was an eye opener.

    and this will increase sales , profit ?

  • “Playboy to stop publishing pictures of scantily clad ladies in their magazine”.

    Time will tell on this. If readership (or voyeurship) declines enough to lose advertising revenues, all bets are off.

  • eMan14

    Yes, but people just read it for the articles.

  • Exile1981

    I see playboy is saying clothed but provocative poses. Does that mean full burka but her eyes showing?

    “It would take the seriousness out of everything to imagine President Kennedy going behind the bathroom door and whacking it to Miss July. I know I stroke it once in a while. I assume he does too.” – Lenny Bruce

      He had Marylin to stroke it for him. Who would bother?

  • Clausewitz

    Some of the best writers of our generation got their start in playboy. Yes I did actually read the articles.

    • Hah, I did too! Naked flesh just isn’t the same when in ink on a page.
