Playboy magazine will stop publishing pictures of fully nude women, after 62 years of glory.

The New York Times reported on late Monday, in an interview  with CEO Scott Flanders. “You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture, ” Playboy’s chief told the newspaper.

The top editor also said the founder Hugh Hefner, 89, had approved the decision to stop publishing images of naked women from March 2016.

The redesigned Playboy 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).

Playboy’s circulation has dropped from 5.6 million in 1975 to about 800, 000 this year, according to the Alliance for Audited Media.
