Playboy has unveiled the first of its magazines that doesn’t require packing in a censoring plastic bag.
The March issue is Snapchat-themed and entirely SFW, after Hugh Hefner last year confirmed its 62-year run as the glossy provider of ( . )v( . ) and ass was over.
On the 1st non-nude cover is famous Insta-babe Sarah McDaniel, who reckons the social media-inspired shoot was – although smut-free – pretty dang sexy.
“The idea was to look at me from a boyfriend’s perspective,” she said of the issue, which hits stands on February 12.
March’s (first non-nude) Playmate is model Dree Hemingway – a 2nd-gen Playboy star thanks to mum Mariel Hemingway – who poses in a robe with exactly 0 intimate body parts on display.
The centrefold, shot by Angelo Pennetta, is actually v. v. v. artistic / beautiful.
Playboy 2.0 will feature articles written by James Franco and an interview with respected US TV host Rachel Maddow, as well as essays on – get this – birth control.
So, for the first time ever, folks everywhere will be able to put their hand on their hearts and proclaim – nay, swear – that “I only read Playboy for the articles.”
