So Playboy magazine is now two issues into its new "no more nudes" format... has anyone seen it?
I had been half heartedly planning to pick up the final "dirty" issue and the first "clean" one just as curiosity items, but I must confess that I totally forgot to even look for'em!

Times sure have changed since the days of buying nudie mags at the corner 7-11. Smile I'm not sure I'd know where to look for a Playboy now even if I wanted to. The only print magazine I read these days is 'Classic Rock', which I get at the local Barnes & Noble. Do they carry Playboy?

I honestly don't know. I haven't been in a B&N store in ages.

But since you mentioned 7-11...I moved to a new office a few months ago and since then I've been frequenting a 7-11 store up the hill for my morning coffee (side note: their Salted Caramel coffee flavor is pretty much the best thing ever!!!). Prior to this office move, it had been years since I'd been in a 7-11 ... and one morning it randomly occurred to me that the store didn't even have a magazine rack!!

That was kind of a shock cuz back in the day I remember 7-11's always had a pretty healthy magazine selection (Playboy and the other men's mags were always behind the counter, of course), and they usually had one of those wire spinning racks full of comic books too. Not anymore. (SIGH) Memories.

Wow, I remember those spinning comic book racks at 7-11. That's where I bought all the horror comics when I was a kid because the local 7-11 was less than a half mile away.

Yep, whenever I traveled with my family as a kid, my pulse always quickened when I saw a 7-11 store, because I knew there'd be comic books inside. Very Happy

I'd come home with a slurpee and one or two comic books I bought with my allowance and my Mom would look at what I bought, roll her eyes and say "It's your money." If she'd ever actually read any of those horror comics she'd have realized how much they were warping my young mind. Oh well. too late now. \'arry \'eadbanger

I remember getting my first Invincible Iron Man from one of those spinning racks at a now defunct pharmacy near my parent's house.

The subscription is the way to go. My wife bought me sub for Christmas in 2014 and I think they gave me like 17 issues (including a sub only Iron Maiden edition) for around $125.

Yea, I looked into that a few years ago when I was a more frequent reader. It was too expensive for me.

I don't read it nearly a much anymore. I'll usually only pick up a copy now if the cover interests me or I happen to be in the mall by B&N. I don't go out of my way for it like I used to.

The newest one (which is prob the last of my subscription) has Axl on the cover and a great article on G'N R in England in '87 before Appetite was even released, and great articles on the bruddas Ramone and Power Metal (the genre, not the Pantera album).

http://www.avclub.com/article/playboy-mansion-now-twinkies-and-pabst-mansion-237878

The Playboy Mansion has been sold for an undisclosed sum to a 32 year old financier whose portfolio also includes Hostess Bakeries (of Twinkies fame) and the Pabst Brewing company.

Playboy, Twinkies and Pabst? I feel like breaking into a chorus of "These are a few of my favorite things." Laughing very hard

So Playboy is now saying "Ehhh, y'know what? Never mind" and going back to publishing nude photos...

https://www.yahoo.com/celebrity/playboy-bringing-back-nudity-pledging-194655959.html

Quote :
Playboy is returning to its original form.
The magazine announced that nudity will, again, be featured on its pages on Monday starting with the March/April 2017 issue, titled Naked Is Normal.
Chief Creative Officer Connor Hefner the 25-year-old son of Hugh Hefner simultaneously tweeted, Ill be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake. Nudity was never the problem because nudity isnt a problem. Today, were taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are.

The new return to nudity wont be quite as NSFW, though, with the March/April issue only displaying breasts and butts, according to the New York Post.

Translated: "Cleaning up our act didn't sell as many magazines as we hoped it would. Who'da thunk?"

And they think this will put them back in the black? Sorry, Hef. Your dated format is dying like Ringling Bros. Circus.

Random trivia question:
Remember when it was kind of a big deal for a celebrity to do a nude pictorial for PB? Who was the last one to do that?

I remember the WWE's Sable and Torrie Wilson causing quite the stir and sold a lot of copies when they posed back in the 90s. Were they the last ones though? I have no idea.

I don't know the answer either. I was just wondering. The last one I kinda remember was Carnie Wilson from Wilson Phillips. She lost a bunch of weight and did a Playboy pictorial. According to Wikipedia, that was back in 2003.

this just makes me think of that Danny McBride line from This is the End, "why the hell do you still have porno mags, Franco? you're beating your dick like a f*cking pilgrim." or something along those lines. Razz

I remember reading Playgirl did the exact same thing back in the 1980s for a stint. Since magazine sales declined a lot, they started doing nudes again very shortly afterward. Now Playboy has reached the same scenario.

Lindsay Lohan, but she had pretty much just entered the "has been" realm when she did that, so that doesn't really count.

Either way, almost all of the famous/semi-famous people who posed for Playboy in the past 20 years only did so when their career had run out of steam. I couldn't tell you who the last one to pose for Playboy that became a superstar in later years was.

Pam Anderson? She went from the pages of Playboy to starring on 'Home Improvement'. And so on.
