Penthouse Magazine announced that it will stop its print edition, and move to a digital-only format in future.

“This will be a new way for its readers to experience the world’s best adult magazine,” the company said.

“Penthouse Magazine will continue to be published in print during the transition to digital. No specific date to stop print publication of our flagship magazine has been set,” said FriendFinder Networks, which owns Penthouse.

It is not only Penthouse which has been struggling in the realm of print. Last year, Playboy announced plans to stop publishing nude photos of women from March 2016.

Playboy CEO Scott Flanders said the reason behind the decision was that sexual images are freely available on the Internet.

“That battle has been fought and won,” he said.
