With its television revenue down $2.8 million already this year, Playboy Enterprises plans to offer 20 hours of softcore gay male programming to Time Warner Cable subscribers, XBIZ.com reports. The new service is expected to begin next month. According to the memo obtained by the adult business news site, Playboy will offer "professionally produced adult programs selected by Playboy, targeted to the male gay community, edited to a standard no more explicit" than softcore pornography. What that means in porn terms after the jump.

Each program in the package “may depict erect genitalia, male-on-male fellatio and simulated or implied sexual intercourse.”
But, according to the memo, content “shall not depict actual anal penetration, licking or anal sexual play of any kind.”
Male ejaculation and forced bondage also will be off limits.
