Pete,

I'm sure you have twigged this one but what the lad got probation for in my reading of the article was not for possession of illegal photos when he was 17 but for transmitting the images when he was 16 thus committing a crime when he was 16.

It's still a completely potty legal mess!

The youthful things go away at the age of 18 here. Clean record, right to vote and have sex. But, you still can't be naked.

A few more people like this and perhaps nudity can become more commonplace! Sorry I missed the broadcast on TV but it was not on a channel I frequent. Kudos to Walgreens and the ad team.

As coy as it would need to be for your side of the puddle.

Good for Walgreens.   It makes going to a nude beach seem fun even for us old people.

Smart, getting all out of life, liberation, lightening up, it's never to late, age is not a barrier. Not an eccentric  thing, not senility, but join us. All very positive. Made my day, grin on DF. What better associations could there be AND from big pharm! That's all of the same hype that they use to sell drugs to old people on TV, always healthy people with grey hair having fun, this time selling skinnydipping!...and control the news media's comments about their monopolies and their government control.
 
 I hope that there is great success for this and other advertisers will follow suit.

97% thumbs up, too.

Not sure what to make of this one - announcing it is probably just a publicity stunt and nothing will come of it, but you never know ...

I recall a visit to the Andy Warhol Museum where the patrons were discussing the copper plates where celebrities had autographed with urine. As people talked more the conversation turned from it being gross to the principals of science and how it left a lasting mark on the plates. In other words; as people talked about it the conversation turned from disgust to civil. I'm not sure Miley is the right spokesperson but she may start a conversation. The more nudity is talked about the closer we become to achieving objectives. Not as good as the Walgreens commercial in my opinion but hopefully not a distraction.

I'm not sure how many of her fans are over 18, the show connotes sex and naughty. It could turn into a grabfest, or worse. I'm not sure that people will separate that from simple nudity. It would be sure to make her tour fill up $$$. On the other hand, an auditorium filled with dancing nekkid people might work. After all, Woodstock did wonders for a generation. These days....

When celebrities like Miley Cyrus go naked it very publicly displays the thought that naked is only another choice of costume.   When the audience goes naked as well, all the thousands of people in the audience have an opportunity to experience nakedness in public.  They are naked and see thousands of people naked without suffering any harm. 

Good for Ms. Cyrus.  The more that nudity is public and not hidden, the more acceptable it becomes for everyone.

I suppose that you all have seen this, but just in case you have yet to be stunned. http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/oct/14/playboy-abolishes-nude-defeat-art-history

No more nudes in Playboy!?!

It may be the beginning of the end...of something, or everything, Hell freezes or something.

800,000 readers at several dollars each and they loose money? How much does it cost to....

Playboy Magazine has been published by females for the past few decades.  Their purpose for existing, "Entertainment for Men" has faded into history.  And the females have finally killed their most important entertainment feature. 

When I was in college in the  late 1960s we wallpapered our bathroom with foldouts.  I quit reading when the female took over as Editor and Publisher.  She may be a good editor, but she does not have the perspective to really understand what "Entertainment for Men" feels like.

At least you can say that you read the magazine for the articles! I haven't read one in years therefore there is no way I can comment on it's editorial value. Very much the same as a male doing the same job at Cosmo; there has to be a gender based slant on things. No nudes? With what is available for free on the internet there is not the value of launching a starlets career or resurrecting an old one that posing nude in Playboy anymore. In the 60's the value the foldouts had as wallpaper was almost the price of the magazine. Although I suspect my room mates shoplifted most of them.

Fancy digs, high life, health care, retirements and golden parachutes to mention a few.

I remember the 1st issue I ever bought and READ was the one with the Jimmy Carter interview. Some of the best short stories I ever read were in Playboy. They payed top dollar for top talent to publish. I had an English professor that recommended it for the writing.

Even though all the photos were touched up, the magazine had it's place in every boys growing up experiences.
