Playboy Sweden

December 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.

MANCY GANT “It’s rewarding to have your voice heard, which is why I always want to communicate some sort of sentiment through my work,” says the portraitist behind Face-to-Face With Toro y Moi, our feature on Chaz Bear. “Can I make you feel what that moment was like?” Gant also collaborated with Bear on the music video for “Ordinary Pleasure,” a track off Toro y Moi’s latest LP, Outer Peace. Gant’s other directing credits include the six-minute short The Falling Man for rapper Duckwrth. JAMIE NELSON A jet-setting photographer whose portfolio includes album artwork for Lily Allen and Gwen Stefani, Nelson has also shot for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair. Her first PLAYBOY commission, Vice Land, is a lucent ode to the seven deadly sins that gluts her long fascination with the…

if pleasure is less powerful than pain (spoiler: it is), then how do we make life worth living?

Pleasure sucks. I can hear you now: “Adam, you’re writing in PLAYBOY, America’s foremost publication dedicated to pleasure. Are you seriously going to argue that pleasure, the very feeling that makes life worth living, ‘sucks’?” Yes, I am. Sorry, you velvet-clad sybarites. Pleasure isn’t all that great, and the idea that it makes life worth living doesn’t stand up to the barest scrutiny. The problem is that pain is a lot more powerful than pleasure. The South African antinatalist philosopher David Benatar points out this fundamental asymmetry: “The worst pains are worse than the best pleasures are good. If you deny this, consider whether you would accept an hour of the worst tortures in exchange for an hour of the most delightful pleasures.” Okay, I’ll bite: Would I, in exchange for one hour of…

before i learned the mysteries of self pleasure, i had to accept that i deserved to feel good

“I heard Amanda lies under the bathtub faucet.” I was tucked into my locker after seventh-grade gym, wrangling my sweaty sports bra out from beneath the underwire bra on top of it. I designed this technique so no one could see my nipples. Eavesdropping on my classmates was an unexpected bonus. “What?” “Like…spread-eagle.” “Why doesn’t she use the hand-shower thing?” “She doesn’t have one.” I might have screamed, “That’s not how you’re supposed to take a shower,” if I hadn’t been stuck in a two-bra shibari of my own design. Or maybe, “Is she pregnant with water?” But I never would have dared ask the only question I actually needed answered: Why? I wasn’t religious. I wasn’t even wholesome. I was the one who knew what a blow job was (or, as I learned it, a “blow…

the pleasure of not being respectable

Somewhere in the sprawling mythos that was his life, John Arthur Johnson — a.k.a. the Galveston Giant, a.k.a. the Big Smoke, a.k.a. Jack — the son of former slaves and first black heavyweight champion of the world, checked into a room at the Seal Rock House in San Francisco. The hotel’s tolerance of a colored man, even a great and laureled one, was not to be presumed in the fall of 1909. The primary concern, however, was not the champion but his female companions: Belle Schreiber and Hattie McClay, two white women who were competing for his attention. Johnson, literally an outsize figure, all sinew and ripple, black as a power outage, was singularly free, having concluded that his capacity to whip white men in the ring emancipated him from…

An anniversary is an invitation to relect on years gone by. Naturally, it’s also an opportunity to celebrate. So with those two notions in mind, we pause for a moment at the tail end of our 65th year of publication to contemplate and commemorate our remarkable history. And after six and a half decades, Playboy has an enviable catalog of milestones and memories from which to draw — emphasis, in this case, on draw. Inspired by our past (the satirical Playboy Coloring Book, which ran in 1963), our present (Pleasure, an erotic coloring book available on PlayboyShop.com and downloadable from the App Store) and our future (which we’re certain will be colorful), we hereby give you a curated collection of illustrated treasures. Grab your markers and release your inner artist as…
