Playboy’s First Non-Nude Issue Is Here, and It Pays Homage to Snapchat


Some time in October 2015, Playboy announced that it will put a stop to its publishing of naked women, in a bid to reach a larger audience. A few months ago, the magazine’s most famous playmate, Pamela Anderson, covered its final nude issue. We now get a first look at the magazine’s first non-nude issue for March 2016, which aims for a younger audience as it pays homage to Snapchat.

Playboy’s latest cover features model Sarah McDaniel – who got famous via Instagram, posing in a Snapchat style shot alongside a flirty caption. The idea for its latest cover which still shows some skin, was based around the fact that about 45 percent of the app’s users are aged between 18 and 24.

According to The New York Times, although full-frontal nudity is no longer present, naked women do appear. However, they’ve been photographed “in ways intended for strategic concealment.”

The March 2016 issue of Playboy hits newsstands on February 12, and a preview is available at the magazine’s website.
