Coronavirus kills Playboy magazine

0

The adult magazine Playboy has become another victim of the coronavirus outbreak.

Playboy says it will stop publishing a regular printed edition, because disruption to the supply chain caused by the virus has hit its already falling sales.

The magazine has been in print for the last 66 years and at one point sold seven million copies a month.

Playboy was not only struggling with the virus though. The free availability of pornography on the internet had long been leading to falling sales and the magazine was only published quarterly in recent years.

The publishers say they will continue to try to expand Playboy as a digital and social media business.
