Playboy no longer wanted to hear about nudity because it considered it “outdated” on glossy paper. But the magazine changed its mind and will finally restore naked ladies on its pages, a year after giving up.

The January / February 2016 issue, with the US-Canadian star Pamela Anderson on its cover, was presented as the last to include photos of naked women on its pages.

In October 2015, the CEO of Playboy, Scott Flanders, who has left his post since, explained that the end of nudity was intended to broaden the group’s audience. Playboy was encouraged by the success of the new version of its website, which showed only women dressed even lightly.

The attempt was obviously not successful, even if the group said nothing about its results.

Nudity is back in the March / April 2017 edition, announced the son of the founder, Cooper Hefner, 25, who replaced his father as head of creation. The young man never hid his opposition to the decision made in 2015, believing that it was contrary to the Playboy philosophy. In this issue, the magazine features Van Jones, Scarlett Johansson and Adam Scott.

“I admit now that the way the magazine presented nudity was outdated, but making it without it was a mistake,” he wrote in a post on his Twitter account. “Nudity has never been the problem because nudity is not a problem,” he added, before concluding: “Today we are renewing our identity and assuming what we are. “
