Playboy South AfricaPlayboy South Africa

Playboy South Africa June 2019

Playboy has unveiled the latest creative evolution of the brand with its re-focused principles that are core to our philosophy and also includes more provocative pictorials. Last year, we removed explicit nudity, but from here on out, it is freedom of choice and personal expression that our fans will experience once again within the pages of the magazine. Playboy remains committed to its award-winning mix of long-form journalism, interviews and fiction and has recently brought back some of its familiar franchises, such as Playboy’s Party Jokes, Playboy Cartoons, World of Playboy, and the debut of the Heritage section.

DAVID GILBERT “What happens when a narcissist awakens to find herself invisible?” That’s just one of the questions Gilbert explores in We Are Not Here, a short story that delves into the psyche of a fading starlet who must confront a specter from her past. Gilbert, whose writing has appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s and GQ, is the author of three books, the most recent being & Sons. He is currently working on a new novel for Random House. MARIA DEL RUSSO In an era of ascendant sexual fluidity, gender-swapping the voice behind our signature and historically male-penned Advisor franchise was an organic decision. “It was definitely daunting, but I’ve always strived to discuss sex in a frank and positive way for everyone, regardless of gender expression,” says Del Russo of taking…

It began with a kiss, as so many sexual awakenings do. Eileen Kelly, who attended Catholic schools in Seattle and comes from a devoutly religious family, still remembers how she felt when a teacher humiliated her for kissing a boy. “I was in third grade, I think, and it was just a peck on the cheek, but it had a lasting effect,” she says. “Shame was just so deeply rooted in how I grew up.” Now 23, Kelly straddles the millennial generation and the coming-of-age Generation Z, a position that makes her one of the freshest faces in the movement to guarantee every person in this country access to a sex education that’s inclusive, gratifying and medically accurate. She wants her generation to participate in more honest conversations about sexuality, enter…

ultimate bartender championship

It was time again to cast off the shackles of the cocktail shaker, time to say “YES!” to the jigger, to the stirring, to the mastering, and time to rise up to the challenge and declare the king of bartending skills in the 2019 Monkey Shoulder Ultimate Bartender Championship (UBC). This year’s Ultimate Bartender Challenge, which took place at Saigon Suzy in Johannesburg, South Africa saw some of the regions best bartenders battle it out to be crowned South Africa’s ultimate bartender and win an all expenses paid trip to the London Cocktail Week in October, 2019. We’ve all heard the saying, “don’t let the same dog bite you twice”, but in this case, the same man has claimed the UBC title for a second year running - Michael Stephenson, owner and…

Describe yourself in three words Sexy, intelligent & funny Were you excited to shoot for Playboy? I think excited is a complete understatement. It’s a real life dream come true for me! What was it like starting out as a model? When I first started out it was kind of rough finding my place in the industry. I went from being 18 and 5'9 and 120 lbs to 140 and a full grown curvy woman. But once I found my placing everything fell into place. What would you consider to be your biggest challenge as a model so far? I think the biggest challenge for me is constantly staying relevant. You have to stay current with social media and all of the different styles of shooting and what’s new and trending. We live in a social media…

strippers = workers

Gizelle Marie was on her way home to New York City after working a shift at the Stadium Club, a Washington, D.C. establishment whose website promises “the most talented exotic entertainment in the industry.” It was October 2017, and the 29-year-old dancer was flush with cash. But as the black car she’d hired whisked her homeward, Marie’s satisfaction turned to frustration. Scrolling through the social media feeds of other strippers, she saw, over and over, their complaints about club practices that prevent dancers from earning the kind of money she’d just made—specifically, the growing ranks of female bartenders who wear revealing clothing, dance provocatively and sometimes literally stand between strippers and their tips. With online followings that can hit six figures, these so-called “startenders” are a reliable draw for customers and…
