I used to have a black box before cable went digital, and I remember that the playboy channel was available.
Having used to watch this religiously (I was in high school. Every boy did it.) I can say I wasn't very impressed with their new standards.
Sure it would still help with the mood but I feel that their lack of actual performance.
Trust me I don't watch it for the plot or dialogue but the fact that they really only show boobs now and theres no real penetration seems as though their not serious enough to keep their fan base.
I know many people that buy playboys just to read the articles because playboy has gone in a different direction. Softcore porn in an industry that is moving towards POV/hardcore porn.
Hell there are companies out there that show guys picking up girls and getting them to have sex on the first try. I'm sure most of them are staged but Playboy is really not looking towards the future.
On the plus side they are doing something right. They have learned the right way to social media. Though a majority of their facebook posts are cars, homes, places they do also post some very sexy models. And all of their posts are SFW.
That said I'm not asking who you watch, but more of your feelings on Playboy. Its apparent that they are turning to Modeling women rather than porn. I definitely appreciate beauty, but give me something more!
