Summer is nearly over and done. To help ease your transition into autumn, meet September’s Playmate Kelly Gale. The Swedish stunner is as real as they come. As you’ll see in this gallery of her ridic pics, she’s beautiful, she’s uniquely herself and she’s unforgettable. Also, she’s real af. But don’t take our word for it. Let Kelly explain:

“Small talk bores me. I won’t start a conversation I have no interest in having–and I never pretend to be interested when I’m not. I’m honest and real. In other words, I won’t say “I love your shoes” unless I love the shoes. Also, don’t ask me how much I get paid or anything about makeup or clothing trends. I don’t care about trends.”

You know, that’s not just good advice for approaching Kelly–if you’re ever lucky enough to see her in person–but it’s strong advice for approaching any woman you find undeniably attractive. Walk up, be honest and be real with her; let her see who you really are. For now, enjoy seeing this vid from Kelly’s photoshoot.

Your Sex Life Is Suffering Because You Still Won’t Talk About It

In America, we like to talk about sex—as gossip. We’re eager to chat about which celebrities got naked together, we like to talk about which of our friends are getting freaky and we’ll even talk about those loud-ass upstairs neighbors and their weird, late-night sex sounds. But we don’t like to talk openly about sex with the two people it matters to most: ourselves, and our partner. (Or partners.) This lack of communication means our sex lives often suffer. That’s why sex therapy has become a common way to deal with sexual difficulties. Here’s how sex therapist Brandy Engler explains her line of work in BuzzFeed and the profound effects of her profession:

“It’s a pathway to knowing yourself better. I think a lot of people associate sex therapy in the localized, mechanical sense like ‘I have to fix my erection.’ It’s going to change your life in a much bigger way, actually.”

Even if you don’t have a partner, sex therapy can still be a big help. Maybe you just need some handy advice on mixing up masturbation habits to enjoy fuller arousal. Like, have you ever tried using The Stranger? You know, your non-dominant hand?.

How to Exit A Boring Ass, Toxic Relationship and Stoke Some Real Sexy Love

This week, the New York Times asked an interesting question about relationships: When did we invent love? The key factor they examined is that love isn’t just a matter of romantic sparks, fiery passions and that indescribable feeling of “when it’s right, you’ll know.” Love is also a form of labor. We must tend to our love like a campfire if we want it to burn bright and warm us through the night. (That is, unless you choose to love a sex doll, which, by the way, researchers think they’re on the cusp of creating some that will love you back). But for those of us who still prefer real flesh-and-blood love, your sexual desire plays a huge part in your attraction—and attachment—to your partner. There are many different expressions of sexual desire and these varieties of sexual heat create different bonds of attachment to your partner, which is why your sex life can be a clear indicator when those bonds have failed.

So, what should you do when the chemistry between you and your partner has expired? Bridget Phetasy explores that question in this week’s Just The Tips. First, you have to face the fact the love has gone cold. Sometimes, no amount of labor can save your love when your relationship is about as healthy as five-day-old sushi. (And just as bad for you.) To discover if your relationship is a fetid mess, you must be honest with yourself. And then, when you discover it’s time to trash your stale fish, dump it and run like hell! Here, let Bridget explain.

Is Polyamory a Sexual Orientation or Nah?

Over the last few years, views of polyamory shifted. It’s no longer seen as something suburban swingers do in wood-paneled rec rooms while the kids are away. Now, it’s a legit life choice–one that the young and sexy around the world are happily and healthily engaging in everyday. In effect, polyamorists are clamoring for greater recognition. They want their multi-partnered love to be designated as a valid sexual orientation. If it’s important to them, it’s a conversation worth having. So, support your local polyamorists. Or don’t. But do support their right to live polyamorously. For a fun example of how many different ways there are to enjoy an engaging sex life, go play around with this interactive map of human sexuality. You may be surprised by the range of your sexual curiosity.

People Won’t Stop Having Sex With Weird, Inanimate Objects

Of course, there are worse ways to explore one’s sexuality, such as the Ohio man who had sex with a van. You probably shouldn’t have sex with a vehicle if you’re in public and it’s not your van. Or, you know, ever. There’s also this pair of Swedish sex pigs who were bumping their body parts in public while wearing porcine masks. When they were discovered by teens playing Pokémon Go, they attacked the gamers with green lasers. Piglet would be appalled.

Check out the 3D Clitoris, the Key to a Woman’s Orgasm

Getting back to the good side of sex, let’s talk about the joys of the clitoris. Most people think a clitoris is just a fleshy button at the top of a woman’s vulva. As the older woman famously said to her virgin lover, “That’s not it.” For many, the clitoris is a widely misunderstood human organ, which is exactly why sex educators created this new 3D model to educate people on the size, shape and wonder of it. If you want to truly pleasure a woman, get to know her clitoris. However, you should know women have lots and lots of ways of expressing orgasms. Check out this video from sexpert Adina Rivers and you’ll see what we mean.


Well, you know what time it is: Time to get your mind right for the weekend. What better way to do that than spend some time with Playboy Muse Michal Idan. In the photos shot by Donari Braxton, she looks as good as Frank Ocean’s finally released new album sounds. So maybe pair the two pleasures together and really set up yourself right for the weekend. Enjoy.
