Playboy Heading to the Philippines…kind of

It was announced last week that Playboy will launch a local edition of Playboy in the Philippines this week–but the magazine will not feature any nudity.  Apparently this isn’t the first time they’ve stricken nudity from their pages to satisfy local religous concerns, as one journalist said it will be “tamer than the US edition but not as tame as the Indonesian edition.”

The journalist added that the magazine would be aimed at a more mature, affluent readership than “lad magazines” such as FHM and Maxim which already have Philippine editions.  Meaning that if this publication were in the US, it would be targetting about 3% of the male population who is rich, mature, and wants to read semi-adult content.
