NATION – If anyone needs an excuse to blow off off steam, it’s the men and women serving in the U.S. military. Now, they’ll have to look a little harder’to find their ‘adult entertainment.’ Playboy, Penthouse and other sexy magazines will no longer be sold at Army and Air Force exchanges.

But it’s not because of the risque content. Nobody’s buying them!

According to a spokesman for the exchange, sales of ‘adult sophisticate’ magazines have shriveled 86% since 1998.

In all, the military is yanking 48 magazines from store shelves. The move is seen as a victory by ‘Morality in Media’, an anti-pornography group campaigning against sexual exploitation in the military.

But we have to say, getting rid of a few nudie mags isn’t going to solve that problem.

Military personnel will still be able to them onto bases, and there’s that thing called the internet.
