Playboy Launches Non-Nude Website

Playboy isn’t just for sneaking a peek anymore: The company launched a new, non-nude website, TheSmokingJacket.com, on Tuesday. The site, which includes categories such as Girls, Entertainment, Sex, Videos, and Lifestyle, is described as workplace-friendly and a “satirical antidote to the drudgery of the work day.” Also included are links to videos, as well as photos from Playboy’s archives. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s 84-year-old founder, told Reuters of the site, “Next to the mansion, it’s the best hangout on the planet.” Posts so far include, “How to Get Laid at Work” and “How to Hang Out with Porn Chicks”. Time will tell whether the site can reach the 6 million unique monthly visitors that Playboy.com claims to receive.
