Playboy South AfricaPlayboy South Africa

Playboy South Africa July 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.

ADRIENNE RAQUEL “My work is all about female empowerment,” says Raquel, who blessed this issue with a double dose of her dreamy aesthetic. She shot Lizzo the I ncomparable—“Lizzo is an entire vibe,” says the photographer. “She’s gorgeous, confident and funny, and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Capturing her was effortless”—and 2019 Playmate of the Year Jordan Emanuel’s 1980s art deco–inspired pictorial. “It oozed glamour,” she says of the latter. LYNSEY ADDARIO “In many countries where stereotypes about women in Islam are perpetuated, free speech is silenced or nonexistent,” says Addario, the Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist who has covered international conflict and humanitarian crises for almost two decades. Of fellow photographer Yumna Al-Arashi, the subject of Yumna in Focus, she says, “Through her nudes and self-portraits, and her ability to document her…

good vibes only

I am surrounded by a sea of dildos: purple ones and black ones, footlongs and pocket-size. Some of them vibrate; some rotate. Some have botanic-looking extensions, like sea anemones and exotic flowers. Some are shaped like rabbits, and others look like teddy bears. I’m inspecting a particularly eerie one with a face molded on its silicone tip when the bartender passes me a small pink device. It heats up and vibrates at different intensities via remote control. Unless previously informed about Vibe Bar Wild One, in Tokyo’s Shibuya ward, one would have difficulty imagining its interior: Hundreds of phalluses line plush velvet booths on the third floor of an unremarkable structure, its location announced by a modest sign. The weathered building, accessed via a dingy alley near the Shibuya railway station, is…

defying the antiporn police

Last November, Apple’s App Store removed Tumblr from its digital shelves after concerns arose that objectionable images, including child pornography, were slipping through the blogging platform’s content filter. Within a month, all of Tumblr’s explicit adult material had disappeared from public view. The concerns were serious and legitimate, but the rush to purge exploitative items from the site also ensnared vast swaths of perfectly healthy sexual content. The episode eerily echoed past culture wars. An overly broad effort to stamp out sexual expression? We’ve been there. In 1968, at the height of the sexual revolution, President Lyndon B. Johnson established the Commission on Obscenity and Pornography. Its aim was to determine whether porn had negative social effects, and its conclusions, reached in 1970 and based on scientific study, were clear: There was…

the subversive scribbler

IT WAS A POEM ABOUT A GIRL WHO WANTED a pony that first landed Shel Silverstein in trouble. Published in his 1981 collection of illustrated children’s poetry, A Light in the Attic, “Little Abigail and the Beautiful Pony” angered parents for its supposed glorification of suicide: Horse-obsessed Abigail stops eating and sleeping and eventually dies, “All because of a pony / That her parents wouldn’t buy.” Or maybe it was Silverstein’s cheeky closing lines that had truly upset the moms and dads who pushed to ban the poem: “This is a good story / To read to your folks / When they won’t buy / You something you want.” For years Silverstein’s work hovered near the top of the American Library Association’s list of most-challenged books. Community groups in seven states…

@EMILYROSEL_X Describe yourself in three words? Confidant, Loving, Unique Were you excited to shoot for Playboy? Yes, very excited, I have always loved Playboy. What was it like starting out as a model? My best friend introduced me to it only a year ago, like anything its hard when you first do it but it gets easier the more you do it. What would you consider to be your biggest challenge as a model so far? Being in Playboy 100% Describe your perfect day off when you are not modelling? Going to a Spa or shopping with my girls. Do you feel more like a city person or a country person? Defiantly country, however love to visit cities. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? I love living in England but somewhere with better weather would be lovely. Thailand…
