No more nudes for Playboy

Playboy announced that starting with their March 2016 issue, the magazine will no longer feature full nudity.
quote [Playboy CEO Scott Flanders acknowledged the magazine's inability to compete with freely available Internet pornography and nudity; according to him, "You're now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture". Hefner agreed with the decision. The redesigned Playboy, however, will still feature a Playmate of the Month and pictures of women, but they will be rated as not appropriate for children under 13. The move will not affect, but it is currently unknown what will happen to the "special" issues. Josh Horwitz of Quartz argues that the motivation for the decision to remove nudity from the magazine is to give Playboy Licensing a less deviant image in India and China, where the brand is a popular item on apparel and thus generates significant revenue].
