Esquire quit publishing depictions of the Vargas girl some time ago.
The women's mags are scandalous not merely in their illustrations.

One ought to be skeptical that a commercial publisher would refuse to
trade in smut to which their market niche was habituated, as it has been
a slouch to the bottom in this culture for about fifty or sixty years
now.    I suspect the original poster talked to a rogue employee who was
making a mendacious excuse for inept inventory control and dodgy
business practices.  IW

So, what about Esquire? Or Vogue?  Or Glamour? Or any magazine where

there is occassionally a person in a scanty outfit?  Why not them?
