The New York chapter of the National Organization for Women reports that New York magazine is dropping their sex ads. From NOWNYC (via gawker):

”New York Magazine has decided to eliminate its ‘adult’ advertisements and to work with NOW-NYC to fight human trafficking in the coming year. This is great news for the magazine, women and the movement to bring an end to human trafficking in our city. We applaud the leadership of New York Magazine, and we look forward to celebrating this progress in the very near future with you.”

New York magazine follows in the footsteps of The New York Press, which announced in August that they were banning elicit back-of-the-book ads.
