Playboy and nudity have always gone hand in hand…until now.

Starting in March, Playboy will no longer feature fully nude models in light of a re-design. Yes, the print edition of Playboy will still feature women in provocative poses. But they will no longer be fully nude.

Here’s the scoop according to an article on MSN:

“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. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.’

The magazine will adopt a cleaner, more modern style, said Mr. Jones, who as chief content officer also oversees its website. There will still be a Playmate of the Month, but the pictures will be ‘PG-13’ and less produced — more like the racier sections of Instagram. ‘A little more accessible, a little more intimate,’ he said. It is not yet decided whether there will still be a centerfold.

Its sex columnist, Mr. Jones said, will be a ‘sex-positive female,’ writing enthusiastically about sex. And Playboy will continue its tradition of investigative journalism, in-depth interviews and fiction. The target audience, Mr. Flanders said, is young men who live in cities. ‘The difference between us and Vice,’ he said, ‘is that we’re going after the guy with a job.”
