“As part of a redesign that will be unveiled next March, the print edition of Playboy will still feature women in provocative poses,” reports The New York Times, adding, “But they will no longer be fully nude.”
The Times story continues, “Its executives admit that Playboy has been overtaken by the changes it pioneered. ‘That battle has been fought and won,’ said Scott Flanders, the company’s chief executive. ‘You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free.

The article adds, “Playboy’s circulation has dropped from 5.6 million in 1975 to about 800,000 now, according to the Alliance for Audited Media.”
The adult-oriented TV channel Playboy TV was sold by Playboy back in 2011. It only licenses the Playboy name.
