It seems ironic that the
pioneering asshole of porn
is finally skewered by
the very sword that he wrought.

I picture Hugh Hefner falling on
the very erect collective penis
he willfully stimulated for personal gain.

Interesting. I'd like to hear Larry Flint's take on it.

I don't see it as either a win or loss for "womanhood". Playboy will still be featuring young, pretty women in provocative photos, they just won't be completely nude.

"The onslaught of Internet pornography has made the nude images in Playboy "passé," Scott Flanders, the company's chief executive, told the New York Times."

Look, between this new change and the sale of National Geo, what are poor boychildren to do to learn about the female form!!

Or was it our
lust for women
and Hefner's
cunning ability
to procure a supply
of what we demand.

It was African slaves
that made the
American cotton industry
what it was.

You're something else no smilie

I don't perceive a win for "womanhood" at all here, because the draw that the naked women in Playboy created has long since been nullified by the evolution of ever more visible and present nakedness in modern-day TV and magazines. Playboy's uniqueness has been blunted and overwhelmed by all the other media depictions in everyday life now. The drastic decline in Playboy sales proves that is the case. It seems that transgender voyeurism may be on the verge of taking the place of the "old" Playboy attraction.

The explanation of Point 1 is about as offensive and demeaning to women as one can get.

Why would anyone want to see a naked woman anyway?
