Playboy Covers!

The magazine decides to cover up.

The world famous porn magazine has decided the time is now to cover up. Playboy Magazine will begin covering the latest issues in America with models covered.

Playboy blame the social media and online outlets for the change in direction. The company was pulling in over 5.4 million subscribers in its prime. Now it's pulling less than 1 million subscribers.

I am guessing in March 2016, the first issue of a PG-13 cover will be on sale.

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".

The founder of Playboy Enterprises Hugh 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 PlayboyPlus.com (which features nudity at a paid subscription), but it is currently unknown what will happen to the "special" issues.

This also comes as no surprise, cable is taking a nosedive too.

What's your take on the controversial move?

Is it the end of the road for the world famous porno magazine?
