Playboy’s First Nude-Free Issue

February 5, 2016


At some point last year, the legendary Playboy magazine which is best known for its explicit content announced that they will soon discontinue the 62-year-old tradition in order to become a more family-friendly magazine.

While most of us thought this was a joke, the March 2016 issue is proof that these words were true.

This latest issue features Sarah McDaniel, a social media star who became probably the most popular model you can follow on Snapchat and Instagram thanks to her sexy stories and photos.

Lo and behold, she wasn’t nude in any of the photos. Instead, Playboy decided to treat its readers with pics of McDaniel rolling around in bed sheets or just hanging out in thongs and an oversized sleep shirt.

As a quick reminder, here’s what Playboy said when they announced the remodeling: “Playboy will continue to publish sexy, seductive pictorials of the world’s most beautiful women, including its iconic Playmates, all shot by some of today’s most renowned photographers. The magazine will also remain committed to its award-winning mix of long-form journalism, interviews and fiction.”

As Sarah told E! News: “The idea was to look at me from a boyfriend’s perspective.” That’s all nice and dandy, honey, but we’re still not used to a Playboy magazine without nude pictures. It’s an end of an era, people.
