Playboy has shown a preview of the first "non-nude" edition of the 62-year-old magazine - a milestone in the mens' publication. However, this doesn't mean that the girls photographed are not nude but instead are covered up in a variety of inventive ways. Going along with the historic theme, the great-granddaughter of novelist Ernest Hemingway will be the March Playmate - one of the girls in the issue the magazine describes as "beautiful women with a very real, relaxed vibe". The star on the cover is Snapchat and Instagram luminary Sarah McDaniel, who relaxed in a chair to take selfies of herself for the publication. The publisher announced in October that it would stop publishing nude photos of women, saying they had become outdated due to the plethora of free pornography on the Internet. Whether this tactic works will be seen when the issue hits news stands on February 12.
