Finally. Can it be that it is becoming every so slightly less seedy? This article seems to think it's not so much about feminism scoring points but rather the fact that they're not making money anymore. Whatever will they do when Hefner meets his maker?

This was discussed on our local radio station. Sadly, it seems that more people are looking at online sites - often pretty horrific content. That is really worrying.

Yes, that was my initial reaction to the news as well, MiniMouse - why buy an overpriced magazine when anything from glamour shots to out and out porn can be viewed online, a lot of it free? sad

Playboy's photo spreads (an unfortunate choice of word, perhaps) were always very plastic, with skin tones far too 'warm' - very fake-looking.

There is certainly an amazing variety of erotica to be found if one prods around long enough on the inter-toobs - some of it quite revolting if it isn't in line with your particular hot-buttons. But in general I think it might be said that people are seldom more innocently engaged than when perusing one-handed material.
