Playboy – Even the logo has been a little prudish of late

 

Playboy magazine has revealed that people who buy pornography are also more than a bit partial to looking at pictures of naked women.

 

The surprising revelation came to light as Playboy announced it will bring full frontal nudity back to its pages after realising that purchasing a pornographic magazine with no pictures of naked ladies inside is a bit like visiting a zoo that has no animals.

Playboy’s Head of Content Mrs. Pearl Necklace said, “Back in the 1970s we enjoyed a circulation high of 5.6 million readers which had dropped to below 700,000 last year. After much soul searching we finally realised that if you’re going to be labelled a pervert for popping in to your local newsagents and purchasing one of the titles on the top shelf, you may want to see content that’s slightly more risqué than that contained in the latest issue of Knitting Weekly.”

The publication announced amid great fanfare last year that it was banning photos of naked women in a bid to attract more mainstream readers and advertisers but that policy has apparently failed – mainly because readers found it hard to get aroused by Rambler’s Association sponsored editorials featuring Gloria Hunniford’s top ten walking holiday destinations in the UK.

The move to ban nudity in Playboy had initially been widely applauded by women’s rights activists, but some have since stated that campaigning against a Playboy magazine with no nudes inside is a bit like organising an anti-Grand Prix fuel emission protest at a soapbox derby.

“Maybe the way we portrayed nudity in the past was a little dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake. Imagine trying to watch an episode of Strictly Come Dancing where the contestants aren’t allowed to dance – they’d have to call it Strictly Come, which is a terrible name for a TV dance contest but ironically a great name for a top shelf magazine,” Mrs. Necklace added.
