I read the whole piece and it was interesting. It doesn't sound like a business model that's going to turn much of a profit. But the old Playboy's time came and went, that's for sure. I used to read it back in the 90s and thought it was a well-put-together magazine, and I agreed with most of its politics, in fact. Although I got bored with seeing the same blonde chicks in the pictorials. It's hard to believe that Jimmy Carter did an interview with Playboy in 1976, before he was elected...that's how big a deal the magazine used to be.

Anyway this sounds to "woke" for me. I guess we're not the target audience anymore.

With all the free porn online I dont see how a soft core magazine can survive unless the written contenct is diamond sharp.

Playboy was only relevant during and shortly after the sexual revolution

Today sexual imagery is a divided issue among the feminists that started it

On the one hand sex is power, and it's a power THEY have unleashed onto the world

But on the other hand "men like it too"

So a naked woman bent over is both freedom and objectification at the same time

It's a funny little grey area that the modern world is struggling to cope with

As for playboy going exclusive, this is just a result of the booming industry

An industry that feminists started. Bigger, dirtier and more available than ever before :)

Even with sharp writing, it wouldn't work these days. Playboy used to publish writers like Hunter S. Thompson, Norman Mailer and Gore Vidal. As recently as the 70s, writers were like rock stars in America. Those days are gone. Sure we have the James Pattersons and J.K. Rowlings (the airport gift shop brigade), but our culture has been so dumbed down that the writer/essayist/novelist is no longer near-universally exalted. Whether that's good or bad, I don't know. And TBH I never even read any of the authors I just mentioned (except when Hunter S. wrote for ESPN, ha). Just piggybacking on your observation.

Used to love playboy back in the day. Sneaking downstairs for the 10 minute preview as a kid lmao

Wouldn't believe the sh1t kids went though in the 90's. Hilarious. Literally we's just go through the recycles to get the dirty mags when we were like 11. Then we just started shoplifting them lol.

Gender nuetral? F.uck off.

I see expression of male sexual desire is getting more day after day as something not acceptable or taboo in the Western society. Playboy was sample of that, and that is why it cant continue.

Sounds like playboy has been infected with blue pilled agenda SJW writers. Playboy was always about the content of the articles and not the smut, the smut was just a hook to get guys to buy it. I can't see any men consuming content that is tainted with blue pilled garbage, this is playboy going the way of marvel comics, star wars, ghostbusters and every other outlet that pushes woke leftist crap. They push the narrative, but no one on their side actually cares to buy the product, so they make something that no one wants; and without the scam that the comic book publishers run (they don't allow returns from comic stores and only sell to stores) this will go broke in no time at all.

This is if their narrative is even around for much longer. I see the extreme side of the blue pill movement collapsing soon as they descend into utter madness.

As our culture has become more feminized, so has Playboy. No surprise there.
