The Army and Air Force Exchange Service will remove sexually explicit magazines from their store shelves, citing poor sales.
"The decision to no longer stock the material is a business decision driven by the time, money and energy required to facilitate buying habits, combined with decreasing demand," Army Lt. Col. Antwan C. Williams, AAFES public affairs chief, said in a statement.
The news comes after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel rejected a request by Morality in Media to stop sales, saying the magazines weren't sexually explicit under current federal law.
Morality in Media called Tuesday's decision a "great victory in its effort to stop sexual exploitation in the Military."
"Hopefully the other branches will follow suit or Secretary Hagel will order their removal from all bases," Morality in Media Executive Director Dawn Hawkins said.
