According to The New York Times, the decision was made in a meeting between editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner and the magazine's top editor, Cory Jones. They both said there's no sense in competing with the free sexually explicit content on the Internet.
Jones said: "That battle has been fought and won. You're now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it's just passe at this juncture."
