Only a year after Playboy Magazine banished the use of fully nude photos in their magazines and publications, they’ve decided to reverse the decision, and are now bringing nudity back. The long-standing magazine had fully instituted its no-nudes policy with their March 2016 issue, due to an effort to ramp up circulation of the magazine and get more mainstream advertisers to buy into it, but it didn’t work. Cooper Hefner, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s son, became the Chief Creative Officer of the magazine last October, and this past Monday, he took to Twitter to admit that it was “a mistake” to remove nudity from the publication entirely.

Playboy Magazine, as we know and love it – nudity and all, will be back as of the March/April 2017 issue, which is just now hitting newsstands.

“Nudity was never the problem, because nudity isn’t a problem. Today, we’re taking our identity back and rediscovering who we are. The way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated.”

Cooper said via Twitter. Sources say that now breasts and buttocks are on display in this new issue, that features the hashtag #NakedIsNormal right on the cover, but there is no sign of full-frontal nudity, which is what the magazine used to feature in the past. The magazine has also featured it fair share of nude or mostly nude motorcycle babes, which surely plenty of you would like to see them do once again.

Check out Cooper Hefner’s official tweet regarding the news below, and tell us in the comments if you’re happy to see Playboy magazine come back to the glory we always knew it could be.
