German playmates will continue to take their clothes off. For as long as the German Playboy manages to stay solvent, at least.
And yikes! You will still need to wear sunglasses when paging through the damned thing (why are German girls so… shiny?).
In Germany, too, nudity and porn is accessible on the Internet, and the magazine’s circulation numbers are steadily declining as well. In the fourth quarter of 2009, Playboy Germany sold 256,866 issues. By the second quarter of 2015, this number had decreased to 167,700 issues, according to German statistics portal Statista.
You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.
