The new site also features a welcome video from Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, wearing his trademark smoking jacket.

“The Smoking Jacket isn’t just something I like to wear around the mansion. It’s Playboy’s new safe-for-work website,” he says. “Next to the mansion, it’s the best hangout on the planet.”

At the time of reporting, the The Smoking Jacket had 494 Twitter followers and 1,122 people had indicated they ‘like’ the site’s page on Facebook.

According to a company statement, Playboy.com will continue offering nudity as well as longer, more reverent lifestyle articles, similar to those appearing in the magazine. Playboy.com currently boasts with over 6 million monthly unique users.

The news comes as Playboy Enterprises (PEI) reported a net loss of US$51.3 million in shares for 2009, following a $160.4 million loss the previous year.

In Asia, Playboy magazine is banned in India, mainland China, Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Brunei, though Japan has a special edition with less revealing content. Australia discontinued the magazine in 2000 due to a decline in sales.

The Playboy TV network has fared better, rolling out in several Asia-Pacific markets, including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea.
