Playboy magazine has announced it is bringing back nudity, reversing a decision made last year.
The move was announced by Playboy's new chief creative officer Cooper Hefner, who said the decision to remove nudity entirely "was a mistake".
"Today we're taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are," he tweeted.
The US magazine also promoted its March-April edition with a picture of its playmate of the month with the hashtag #NakedIsNormal.
Some social media users welcomed the U-turn, describing it as a "good call", while others said the decision was taken "because the magazines weren't selling too well. Too bad free porn is still easy to access".
On Monday, Mr Hefner wrote: "I'll be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated.
"Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn't a problem," added the 25-year-old son of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.
Samir Husni, a journalism professor at the University of Mississippi, said Playboy's ban on nudity had probably alienated more readers than it attracted.
"Playboy and the idea of non-nudity is sort of an oxymoron," he told the Associated Press.
The magazine still had to find a way to appeal to a younger audience in a digital age where nudity has become commonplace, Mr Husni added.
Playboy, which was founded in 1953, stopped printing nude photos in March 2016.
The cover of the March issue features Instagram-famous model Sarah McDaniel simulating a sexy Snapchat - her arm held up as if holding the camera with a text banner reading 'heyyy :)'
Its US owners said at the time that the internet had made nudity outdated, and pornographic magazines were no longer so commercially viable.
Playboy's circulation has dropped from its peak 5.6 million in the 1970s to below 700,000 last year.
