Meet the first hijab-wearing Muslim to pose for Playboy


Playboy has for the first time featured a Muslim woman wearing a hijab.

The BBC’s Hanan Razek met Libyan-American journalist Noor Tagouri to find out why she wanted to pose for the magazine, which stopped publishing fully nude photos in 2015.

The company’s management team says the internet means that pornographic magazines are no longer commercially viable. Playboy’s circulation has fallen dramatically from its peak in the mid-1970s.

We have been asking what you think of this change; on Twitter, on Facebook and on our story. Many of you think it is a most welcome move and might even help encourage a more respectful portrayal of women in the media.
