Back in 2015, Playboy Magazine decided to change direction, and no longer feature nudity in their editorials. This was the end of an era of course, as naked woman are the foundation of the mag! Thankfully, their new CCO, Cooper Hefner, has decided to reverse the decision made by then-Chief Executive Scott Flanders, and the nudes are back!

“Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn’t a problem,” Cooper said yesterday. “Today we’re taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are.”

He detailed his plan in the first entry of the rebooted Playboy Philosophy column:

“At this point in history, the most vital intellectual discussion we can have is how to create a society that’s as free as possible without ignoring the social and economic implications of our policy decisions,” he wrote. “We need to identify who our allies are at a time when, on the liberal side, a culture of political correctness discourages debate that may hurt people’s feelings and, on the conservative side, politicians seem comfortable jeopardizing the rights of specific groups in the belief that it will ‘make America great again.'”

The nudity returns with the March/April issue. It’s lit!
