After about a year of covering up, the latest issue of Playboy features a return to nude photographs along with the welcoming hashtag of #NakedIsNormal.

A less extreme version of “Coca-Cola Classic/New Coke,” Playboy’s no-nude experiment didn’t go as planned, and Chief Creative Officer Cooper Hefner said in a statement, “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. Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn’t a problem. Today we’re taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are.”
The new March/April issue of Playboy hits newsstands February 28, and for those of you that do read it for the articles, it’ll feature an interview with Scarlett Johansson and a piece on CNN’s Van Jones.
