I’m honestly curious to see how the magazine is going to reinvent itself. Now I just need to find a newsstand that sells the American version in la Suisse.

The First Non-Nude Issue of Playboy is Here:

Back in October, Playboy announced that we would be removing nudity from the magazine starting with the March 2016 issue. Well, that issue will be coming out next week, which means it’s time to start unveiling how we’ve transformed our iconic publication.

We’ve produced a number of memorable covers in the 62 year history of Playboy, and we think the cover for the upcoming issue will be remembered for years to come.

The cover features model Sarah McDaniel. As you can see, she has two different-colored eyes, a condition known as heterochromia irdum. This gives her a unique look that makes her stand out in the modeling world.

The cover is also designed to present a more intimate experience for the reader. “The idea was to look at me from a boyfriend’s perspective,” Sarah says.

Playboy mansion for sale, with a twist.

Playboy Magazine’s parent company put the West Los Angeles estate on the market on Monday for $200m (£138m).

The five-acre property has appeared in numerous films and TV shows as a luxurious bachelor pad.

As a condition of the sale, Mr Hefner, 89, would be allowed to stay in his home of 45 years.

“The Playboy Mansion has been a creative centre for Hef as his residence and workplace… as it will continue to be if the property is sold,” Playboy chief executive Scott Flanders said in a statement.

The mansion has 29 rooms, a wine cellar and a home theatre, but real estate experts say the home would need major upgrades to match current high-end properties in Beverly Hills.

However, buyers would get history. The backyard includes a swimming pool with the famous cave-like grotto where Playboy bunnies mixed with celebrities.

In addition to “bunnies”, the estate is currently home to monkeys, cockatoos, peacocks, African cranes, parrots, toucans and pelicans. And the new owner could keep them – thanks to a rare zoo licence.

Mr Hefner bought the home in 1971 for $1m. The estate eventually replaced the original Playboy Mansion, which opened in 1959 in Chicago.

The proposed sale comes as Playboy has been making changes to its businesses as demand for nude pictures has dropped with online porn becoming ubiquitous.

Playboy magazine will stop publishing pictures of fully nude women because the ubiquity of internet pornography has made such images “passé”, the company’s chief executive has revealed.

In an interview with the New York Times, CEO Scott Flanders said founder Hugh Hefner, 89, had agreed with a proposal to stop publishing images of naked women from March 2016. The redesigned Playboy, 62 years after it was launched by Hefner, will still feature a Playmate of the Month and provocative pictures of women, but they will be rated PG-13 (a rating that cautions that material may be inappropriate for children under 13).

Flanders told the NYT: “You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.”

In other changes, the sex columnist will be a “sex-positive female” and the target of the magazine will be young employed males. “The difference between us and Vice,” Flanders said, “is that we’re going after the guy with a job.”

The Playboy website has already been given a makeover and made safe to read at work, resulting in younger readers and an increase in web traffic. The chief content officer of the magazine, Cory Jones, said the magazine would be more accessible and more intimate, admitting: “Twelve-year-old me is very disappointed in current me. But it’s the right thing to do.”

The US issue of Playboy is no longer profitable, but exists as a marketing tool for the international editions and the Playboy licensing business, which is profitable. The magazine’s circulation has dropped from 5.6m in 1975 to about 800,000 now, according to the Alliance for Audited Media.

Marilyn Monroe was on the first cover of the magazine in 1953 and the editor’s letter from Hefner said: “If you’re a man between the ages of 18 and 80, Playboy is meant for you. We enjoy mixing up cocktails and an hors d’oeuvre or two, putting a little mood music on the phonograph, and inviting in a female acquaintance for a quiet discussion on Picasso, Nietzsche, jazz, sex … ”
