By bfactorOctober 13, in Off Topic. This might seem like no big deal, but the perv in me senses that it is at least somewhat important, and thus a significant perv-loss of some sort. That shit tilts me pretty hard.
Over the years a lot of hot, nude women have graced the pages of Playboy. And as much as warm-blooded folks all like getting a peek at the Playmate—dreamed up by Hugh Hefner to be the girl next door, stripped bare for your convenience—nothing has the gawk factor of celebrity skin. Playboy launched in December with a celebrity on the cover and in the pages—Marilyn Monroe who didn't actually pose for the mag —but the magazine really didn't trade in famous nudity for its first couple of decades.
The iconic men's magazine is changing with the times and beginning with a redesign in Marchit will no longer publish photos of nude women. However, it will still publish images of woman in provocative poses, the magazine told the New York Times. Though once a pioneer in the sexual revolution, modern culture and especially modern technology have left Playboy a bit old fashioned.
The naked truth about Marilyn Monroe's famed appearance on the first Playboy cover: The iconic blonde bombshell born Norma Jeane Mortenson never actually posed for the magazine at all. In fact, when the late Hugh Hefner used "the famous Marilyn Monroe nude" the exact words emblazoned upon the publication's splashy inaugural cover to launch the men's lifestyle and entertainment glossy — and his storied Playboy brand as a whole — inMonroe hadn't consented to the then-four-year-old images' use, nor had Hefner directly paid her a dime. That was, of course, because neither was legally required.
Hey, remember in when Playboy announced that it would stop publishing images of nude women indefinitely, signifying the end of a year tradition? After Hugh Hefner's son, Cooper, was made chief creative officer for the magazine last October, he made it his mission to abolish the no nude policy. As an explanation for the new old policy, he tweeted this statement about the new old direction of the brand:. He claims that "nudity was never the problem" and by re-instilling nudity back into the magazine, Playboy is taking back its identity.
