    Playboy to Drop Nudity as Internet Fills Demand

    Last month, Cory Jones, a top editor at Playboy, went to see its founder Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion.

    In a wood-paneled dining room, with Picasso and de Kooning prints on the walls, Mr. Jones nervously presented a radical suggestion: the magazine, a leader of the revolution that helped take sex in America from furtive to ubiquitous, should stop publishing images of naked women.

    Mr. Hefner, now 89, but still listed as editor in chief, agreed. As part of a redesign that will be unveiled next March, the print edition of Playboy will still feature women in provocative poses. But they will no longer be fully nude.

    Does that mean an increase in the demand for PC monitor screen cleaner?

    That's exactly what I was trying to tell Mrs. Reb and her sister last week. We were going through a bunch of boxes in our storage shed and we happened upon a box containing over 30 old Playboy mags that I've had for decades. For some reason they just couldn't believe that I kept them for educational purposes. They both know I'm a very truthful person. I wouldn't lie about thing like that..

    If they are in good shape, they might be worth something.

    So now National Geographic will have more nudity than Playboy? What's the world coming to? Where will it all end?

    On a more serious note, exactly how is this move going to help their circulation?

    This may be a similar move to when Coke pulled the original formula off the shelves.

    Maybe they can change their name to "Play-Genderfluid Lifeform"..... that might help...

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.
