It’s officially the end of an era.

After decades of publishing nude pictorials, Playboy is releasing its first issue completely free of naked pictures.

The March 2016 issue – out next week – features social media star Sarah McDaniel on the cover, shot to look like a Snapchat picture. Although none of the photos of McDaniel feature nudity, they are definitely still racy.

“The idea was to look at me from a boyfriend’s perspective,” McDaniel told Playboy about the shoot’s concept.

Playboy announced its decision to stop publishing nude photos in October.

“You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture,” Playboy CEO Scott Flanders told the The New York Times at the time.
