    Thank goodness there's still Gape Monthly.

    Last month, Cory Jones, a top editor at Playboy, went to see its founder Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion.

    In a wood-paneled dining room, with Picasso and de Kooning prints on the walls, Mr. Jones nervously presented a radical suggestion: the magazine, a leader of the revolution that helped take sex in America from furtive to ubiquitous, should stop publishing images of naked women.

    Mr. Hefner, now 89, but still listed as editor in chief, agreed. As part of a redesign that will be unveiled next March, the print edition of Playboy will still feature women in provocative poses. But they will no longer be fully nude.

    It is. Who the hell buys Playboy for pics of naked broads? Now they can go mainstream and sell hundreds of copies. Next to People and Rolling Stone.

    All you faggots saying you don't care should remember that this was where we got a shitload of celebrity broads to strip down.

    I'd rather see hacked iPhone pics of celebs squatting over mirrors than some airbrushed, tasteful poses.

    I watched a 22yo chick jamming pool balls up her asshole on a free webcam site not too long ago. Fuck Playboy and Hugh.

    Then again those celebrity broads are usually sending nudes to their boyfriends who break up with them and post them online, or their photo accounts get hacked and the pictures end up online. Lots of times they do it for free and post their shit on Twittter or Tumblr.
