Playboy brings back nudes

Playboy is returning to the bare essentials.

A year after the famed but struggling men’s magazine stopped featuring photographs of naked women, it has apparently had a change of heart. From now, women will shed much of the scanty clothing that had been covering them up.

The next issue, which hits newsstands at the end of the month, will feature women who are topless and almost fully exposed (think strategically placed leaf, hand or leg).

We asked the new general manager at The Mansion about these photos. He said, very matter-of-factly, “that’s probably when they built the tunnels in the 70s.”

Um, what?

The Playboy Mansion is, in fact, the only private residence in LA with a fireworks license and one of the few with a zookeeping permit.

Some of them — such as whether there’s a secret room in the house that lets you see into the Grotto pool — we can’t verify because we’ve never actually seen that room in The Mansion. But we’d never heard anything about a tunnel.
