Good lord, after the last few issues, this is downright normal. Did they change art directors or something? :D

They've had the same artist draw every cover since issue 3 (the first monthly issue).  It could be coincidence, but there seems to be an ebb and flow of lewd/chaste at work.  The first time it struck me was the 3 issue arc that went: dominatrix dripping wax on a guy's erection, cow-girl with giant udders, innocent girl w/teddy bear wearing ankle-length dress and covered by a giant pillow.

Pulling back after a few riskier covers could have been a reaction to reader feedback.  Remember, 100% of Japanese magazine scans are at the bookstore, so people had to walk up to the counter and pay for these things in person.  Apparently the first issue back in 1993 was infamous for being "embarrassing to purchase."  Which is almost cute, considering the state of adult magazines in Japan now, which are ALWAYS extremely explicit and sometimes downright gross.
