Playboy March 2017 Issue Brings Naked Back with Elizabeth Elam

Playboy March 2017 Issue Makes a Return to Nudity with Elizabeth Elam

Justin Timberlake may have brought sexy back in 2007, but its Playboy now who’s bringing naked back to its iconic title. For those of us not keeping up with the magazine, this doesn’t sound like news at all. Isn’t Playboy a magazine known for featuring naked models, anyways? That was the case until 2015, when the company made a shocking announcement that Playboy would no longer include naked women in print. However, the nudity ban turned out to be not so permanent. The mens magazine makes its return to pages of nude women with the Playboy March 2017 issue starring Elizabeth Elam.

Ironically, it’s another very famous Heffner who officially reversed the unpopular decision. Meet Cooper Heffner, son of founder Hugh Heffner, and Playboy Enterprises standing Chief Creative Officer. “This is a remarkably special moment personally and professionally that I get to share this issue of Playboy magazine with my Dad, as well as with readers,” he shares. “It is a reflection of how the brand can best connect with my generation and generations to come,” he adds. Cooper also candidly admits that 2015 decision was a mistake. “I’ll be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake,” he explained. “Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn’t a problem. Today we’re taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are.”

Cooper Heffner is hitting the ground running. First up in the newly released nude Playboy March 2017 issue is a sunlit filled photo spread with Elizabeth Elam. Shot in classic Playboy style within a luxurious interior, Elizabeth poses in an assortment of dreamy images, sporting flirty lingerie before eventually going completely nude.
