Meet January Playmate Kayla Garvin

She began her days in what she calls the “hippie-like” college town of Eugene, Oregon—home of the Ducks. For her childhood, led by her peripatetic mother, she and her siblings bounced around America. This left her “up for anything…within reason.” Meet January Playmate Kayla Garvin.

The luminous brunette stunner with an artist’s soul got candid for her Data Sheet. She opened up about her love of tequila, photography and painting, her hankering to travel to New Zealand, as well as what she looks for in a guy to date. “When a guy makes you feel like you’re special and the only woman in the world who matters, it’s a big turn-on. Just be in the moment, sweet, loving and considerate.”

That’s good advice, always. If you’re looking to start your New Year right, pop over and peep Kayla’s nude pictorial; you can pick-up the digital January/February 2018 issue here to see more. Enjoy!

Holiday Hookups

Tis The Season For Casual Sex

If you’re single, we have one question for you: Are you looking for a holiday hookup? Of course you are.

Other than finding that perfect gift or scoring a fat holiday bonus, there are few better yuletime pleasures than hooking up during the holidays. Maybe it’s all the warmth and good cheer. Maybe it’s all the TV specials, Hallmark movies and commercials pushing holiday gift-giving. Or maybe it’s all the spiked egg nog. Whatever it is, seasons greetings is often the first blush of a flirtation that can lead to toe-curling pleasure. If you’re looking to knock some winter boots, we’ve got you covered. It could be a sexy stranger, an office crush or an old ex. No matter who you pursue for some shared pleasure, here’s our casual guide to finding a holiday hookup. Or two. Or three. Good luck!

Oh, and when you find some casual sex, treat yourself and your partner right, and remember to wrap it up. As a recent survey just showed, among sexually active young people, only half used a condom the last time they had sex. We know a lot of dudes complain about how they hate condoms because it feels like fucking a trash bag. As we’ve pointed out before there are plenty of super-sensitive new condoms on the market. So this holiday hookup season, treat your dick like a gift and wrap it up.

The Kink Report

Black Women and Polyamory; Our Guide to Period Sex; Is BDSM Good For Your Head?

What do you picture when someone calls out black women who are sexy as they wanna be? Do you picture a woman like Nicki Minaj? You might. She definitely is. This week, Black Barbie posted some fire on Instagram. Wearing just nipple tassels as decoration, she had tongues wagging around the globe. She also had heads nodding along to her bars on the new Migos track “Motorsports” which she and Cardi B featured on. Been a good week for our girl Nicki.

But there’s so much more to being a sexually assertive black women than the popular conception. There’s nothing wrong with being Nicki, but she’s only one example of being black and sexy as you wanna be. For example, if we asked you to picture a polyamorist, would you ever picture a black woman? You should.

This week, writer Meagan Jordan wrote about the new Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It, which is based on the classic Spike Lee movie of the same name. Jordan examines pop culture’s representation of a polyamorist black woman and what it means for her to juggle multiple lovers—aka for her to be abnormal but not a freak. It’s a damn-fine read. Check it here.

And while we’re keeping it all-the-way kinky, for those of you who know and enjoy the sting of pain and pleasure of submission, we have good news. We imagine you may already know this from personal experience, but numerous recent studies have concluded that BDSM is really good for your brain. So maybe, this year, if your kink drawer is empty, put some sex toys on your wish list. It’s good for you.

Sexual Education

The Joy of the A-Spot

As your go-to guide for all things sex, you know we’re here to make sure you’re up on the latest, greatest sex news and benefit from all the best sex tips around. This week, we have two bits of advice to step up your sex game.

First, period sex. A lot of dudes flinch when their partner is feeling a little rusty with her monthly visit from the Iron and Blood Fairy. But that’s not you, right? You’ve been reading Playboy long enough to know that period sex can be some of the best sex. For one, it can greatly reduce her cramps, quell her headaches and make her feel loved, desired and cared for when she’s feeling particularly sensitive. That’s is super good for couple’s bonding. Plus, with all those rushes of fluctuating hormones, it can also be one of the times she’s most horny. Here are few things you can do to make period sex feel incredible. It’s the Playboy Guide to Period Sex. Keep these two words (always) in mind: clitoral stimulation.

Have you heard of the A-Spot? It’s a complex of nerves located up inside a woman that can lead to intense waves of tingling paroxysms of pleasure. You want that. If you’d like to know how to find, tease and coax such rare delights, check this handy and candid article from Vice. Writer Zoe Lignon shares her personal journey to find ways to hit that particular joy spot up by the belly side of the cervix. You too can find it—if you know where to look.

Shocker

Women Rate Strong Men As More Attractive

In news that will surprise no one, this week, scientists wasted an untold amount of money to learn what any child of five could tell you. As reported by the Washington Post, apparently a group of truly uninspired researchers asked women to rate a spectrum of men. The women reported back that strongest men were the most attractive. Who approved this study? Hope they also get around to approving funding on that other urgently-needed study “How Wet Is Water?”

But, wait: What about all those recent articles that reported “dad bod” to be the new sexy ideal? Isn’t soft supposed to be hot? Well, it’s almost as if history indicates that women like a range of men, but the body type a predominant number of women find attractive is a fit body. It’s almost like Nature was designed for fitness of a species or something. But if natural conditions for survival change, measures of fitness will change too. That means women’s preferences would change. While older biologically driven patterns of attraction still hold today, new culturally driven patterns also affect sexiness. Wild, right? (Hey, National Institutes of Health, please send me $1 million for my findings.)

This Week In WTF?!

“This is How You Put On a Condom With Your Mouth.”

Each week, we like to take a digital trek around the world to check in with all the crazy new ways people are trying to get kinky, all the ways people push their freak factor, all the ways humans chase some pleasure and ignore common sense. Some of the stories end in glory, some end in pain, others end in shame, but all of these stories will leave you wondering “WTF?!” This week, we have a glass menagerie filled with deadly sins and sweet perversions.

Pride: Dude Proudly Dates World-Famous Porn-Star Girlfriend

Technically, pride is one of the Seven Deadly Sins. In this instance, we have a hard time seeing how that can be. This dude dates a world-famous porn star. You might think that means he’s some beta, sad cuck, but he truly seems cool with it. And sure, people may make fun of the fact, but he doesn’t care. Neither does his family. In fact, when he introduced her to his mom, he warned her what his girlfriend does for a living. His mom didn’t give a feather or a fig. She was just glad the new girlfriend wasn’t pregnant. Looks like Mom understands that sex work is work.

Jealousy and Wrath: Jealous Boyfriend’s Anger Flares Up Into Arson

This dude makes it abundantly evident why jealousy is considered a deadly sin. Same with wrath. Meet Creio Chance Bishop, a 21-year-old West Virginian who was fed-up with his girlfriend working at the local strip club. So he did what any psychopath would do: He burned down the strip club. Problem solved, right? Well, no. You’re reading about Bishop because he was arrested for arson after he was caught—wait for it—standing across the street watching the club burn down. Sometimes, it does seem like only the stupid and unlucky get caught. Our man Bishop would be the former.

Teacher Gets Busted After Teaching Sex Ed With Her Mouth

Guess the sin in this case is lust—which, obviously, we wouldn’t score the same. Or perhaps more accurately it’s pride and hubris. Because what teacher working today thinks a good way to teach high school kids how to use condom is to demonstrate it on a student?

But hey, don’t worry. She didn’t use the student’s penis. Instead, she had him hold a plastic penis at crotch-level. Then she lowered herself to her knees, put a condom in her mouth and showed the class how to put it on your partner’s penis with a blowjob. (That is, by the way, a highly recommended way to put on a condom.) We don’t see a problem with this lesson. The execution, however…Obviously, this would be a big problem for the prudes in the Bible Belt in America, but this happened in Brazil. One expects them to be a little looser about such things.

Sloth and Envy: Landlord Beats Meat in Renter’s Apartment

Check out Pennsylvania doing their best impression of Florida. This week, one of America’s worst landlords got busted. His victim had a strange feeling that “someone had been going through her personal effects, specifically her clothing.” So she installed a motion-triggered camera and Wifi-enabled security system. That’s how she caught her landlord breaking into her apartment.

What a terrible life moment. You get a push notification from your apartment security system and see a livestream of your 67-year-old landlord, pantless, beating his meat into your dirty laundry. The unnamed victim alerted police and showed them pictures of her landlord playing five-knuckle-shuffle in her dirty whites. Thomas Fallon was arrested on felony charges for criminal trespass and burglary. His defense was that he was “present to fix a hot water heater.” That’s the worst euphemism for jerking off anyone has ever used. And it’s a terrible lie when you’re caught on-camera pantsless, milking the bull.
