Playboy South Africa

May 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.

VIRGINIA HEFFERNANWho better to further dialogue on the country’s hottest-button issues than a pair of not-alwaysaligned cultural critics? In this installment of the Playboy Interview, Heffernan — a Wired contributing editor, Los Angeles Times columnist and co-host of Slate’s Trumpcast — dives deep with Proof of Collusion author Seth Abramson into bipartisan politics, literary tweeting and, of course, Kremlin collusion.GIL MACIASWe sent PLAYBOY‘s own managing editor to dine with Frank Grillo for this issue’s style feature. Despite his familiarity with Grillo’s career, Macias, a longtime entertainment writer who specializes in pop culture, superheroes, cosplay and “all things geeky,” was struck by the action star’s depth. “I expected to discuss fight culture but was blown away by how wise and layered he is,” says the 13-year PLAYBOY veteran. “It was cool…

butterfly kisses

With America furiously debating the parameters of free speech, we wanted this issue, including the visuals that introduce it, to reflect expression without limitation. To bring that concept to life, we tapped 25-year-old photographer Kelia Anne, among PLAYBOY’s youngest cover artists to date. Kelia Anne’s surreal, colorful world, starring a preserved butterfly perched on the tip of model Jesi Le Rae’s tongue, is at once inviting and startling, nostalgic and fresh. These tensions make for an arresting image while capturing the complexities of silence and speech. “I envisioned a scenario in which voices are expressed visually, as sweet and fragile, and silence is on the cusp of being broken,” says Kelia Anne. “I also considered the false negative implications associated with breaking it.” The intimate shoot was rife with special…

2019 playboy jazz festival preview

ANGÉLIQUE KIDJO Since performing at 2013’s Jazz Fest, the Benin-born artist has picked up two Grammys, accepted Amnesty International’s 2016 Ambassador of Conscience Award and released a front-toback reinterpretation of the Talking Heads’ Remain in Light. It’s hard to overstate her importance in world music and harder still to render in words the lifeaffirming experience of seeing her live.MACEO PARKER BIG BAND An indispensable part of James Brown’s best years who has also played with the likes of Parliament-Funkadelic and Prince, Parker is an artist whose saxophone work resides deep in our collective consciousness. He brings to Jazz Fest his Big Band, which backed him on last year’s ebullient longplayer It’s All About Love.DONNY MCCASLIN Blackstar, the album David Bowie released just days before his death, features the haunting tracery of…

the new boob tube

When Game of Thrones debuts its eighth and final season on April 14, one thing will be glaringly apparent to longtime fans: There aren’t nearly as many naked prostitutes in Westeros anymore.This is particularly disappointing to Samantha Bentley, who has played three different ladies of the night over several seasons of HBO’s 47-time Emmy-winning series. “I was hoping maybe they’d have me back one more time before it ends,” she says wistfully. “But it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. It’s a different show now.”By “different,” she means, of course, less nude. Exposed flesh on Game of Thrones has dropped by a staggering 81.8 percent from season one to season seven. This is a pretty dramatic shift for a show that actor Ian McShane, a onetime guest star, once…

eternal yet ephemeral, lust comes sharply into focus…and fades

Their lips are poised to meet in a classic gesture of pure desire. Her lips are soft and vulnerable, easily bruised, his more determined, principled, their mouths slightly open as though to ask a question. Do they know each other? It doesn’t matter. Only the imminent meeting of their yearning mouths matters. There is something gravely intimate about the moment, something almost sacred in its graceful choreography.He is handsome in a rugged honest way; she is radiantly beautiful. A disembodied narrative voice is quietly cataloging: her heaving bosom, her flushed throat, her fluttering eyelids, her supple hips. Which could be where the man’s unseen hands are, just below the frame, these his general impressions. Are their lips moving? Perhaps they are whispering something to each other. Or maybe they simply…
