Interestingly, however, eBay also made clear exceptions to "Playboy", "Playgirl", "Mayfair" and 

"Penthouse" magazines, which are reported to be very popular among collectors.When the 

media asked about the motivation behind this change, eBay did not respond. However, 

the company wrote at the bottom of the new policy: "We want to allow those 

who want to legally purchase adult products to be able to purchase them, 

and at the same time prevent those who do not want to view or 

purchase these items from easily obtaining these items."
