Does her face look familiar? You may remember this blue-eyed beauty from when she graced our March 2013 cover. Her name is Liza Kei, and we’re super happy to announce she’s back as our August 2017 Playmate.

This former ballet dancer made the leap to modeling after she was discovered at a recital back home in Mother Russia. She’s been steadily modeling ever since. With political tensions between America and Russia reaching a fever pitch, it’s nice to see we still agree on some essential things––like the fact Liza is a world-class stunner.

In her Playmate Data Sheet, Liza describes herself as “funny, sexy, sarcastic.” We’d add luminous to that list. For her Playmate pictorial, the New York-based model partnered with photographer Christopher von Steinbach and the results are a savage blend of borderless sexiness and limitless self-confidence. Enjoy!

The Kink Report

Are You Into Butt Stuff? Why Not?

The data is in and the results are clear: America is down for some ass play. This hasn’t always been the case. Back in the 1990s, only 20 percent of Americans engaged in butt stuff. That number has doubled. These days, 71 percent of men happily confess they’d be down to try a finger in the booty hole. And 80 percent of straight women report they’d oblige some anal stimulation. If you’re curious, you can check those rising numbers for yourself here.

Last year, the Playboy Advisor helped this trend along with advice on both giving and receiving some butt-based pleasure. If you’d like some tips on how to please that booty—hers or yours—our guides are a good place to start.

And for a little visual stimulation, here’s what the ideal butt looks like, according to plastic surgeons.

Men Ditching Condoms For Penis Stickers

Here’s a very odd, new trend for men: stickers for your dick. We don’t mean Lisa Frank stickers; these stickers aren’t meant to decorate your flesh cannon. No. This is a new form of prophylactic. Rather than wrap it up with a condom, men can place a sticker over the tip of their dicks.

The urethra blockers are called Jiftip and are billed as a way to free men from condoms so you can “Feel your partner, Feel Freedom, Feel Safe.” The only problem is that sexperts are warning these are actually a terrible idea. Obviously, ditching a condom would vastly increase sensitivity, but Jiftip provides no real protection from STIs or pregnancy.

That begs the question, How exactly does this help a man “feel safe?” The website offers this disclaimer in all-caps: THOU SHALT NOT USE FOR PREGNANCY OR STI PREVENTION PURPOSES. So, you might as well use kids stickers on your dick. They’d be just as useful.

By the way, here’s an article on everything you can catch from oral sex. If you wanna legit “feel safe” knowledge is key.

Future Sex

The Rise of BDSM Tourism

You’ve heard of sex tourism, right? That’s when people travel to far-flung places to enjoy hedonistic pleasures that aren’t exactly legal back home. So they hop on a plane and shoot over to a place like Thailand or Colombia to enjoy the skills of a sex worker, or two, or five. Whatever. We don’t judge. Now people are traveling for BDSM sex vacations. Call it the Fifty Shades of Grey travel plan.

Over in China, there’s a thriving underground sex culture. Recently, a stripper/sex worker captured these behind-the-scenes photos of what it’s like in this subterranean sex scene.

How Good Are You in Bed? Take Our Quiz

This week, our sex columnist Bridget Phetasy put together this super fun quiz that’ll tell you how good you are in bed. But guys, it’ll only work if you are brutally honest with yourself. Time to find out if you’re a rookie, a stud or a sexual ninja. Which one do you think you are?

Men don’t typically get credit for how complex we are sexually. Popular culture tends to portray men as walking erections who are always ready to smash. But if we’re being real about it, men are just as complex as women when it comes to sex. Well, maybe not just as complex. But we’re definitely not the simple creatures movies and television make us out to be. So, forget the stereotypes. Be confident to be just as complex as you feel.

The Big O

Compared to Rest of the World, Americans Have Average Orgasms

This was something of a surprise. In a recent survey of sexual pleasure around the world, Americans scored in the middle of the pack when it comes to enjoying an orgasm. What’s up with that? Well, let’s consider the data. Who scored well?

The nations that reported the most intense orgasms were Chile, Spain and Italy. (Maybe there’s something to that whole Latin lover stereotype after all.) If you’re wondering which nation has the most lackluster orgasms, it was Australia. When asked to self-score the intensity of their orgasms, Aussies rated them as one out of 10. Ouch. Sounds like the folks down under need to add a little more thunder in the bedroom.

Here’s another surprise: the nation that reported the most frequent orgasms was Norway. A third of Norwegians report having an orgasm every damn day. Way to keep it sexy, Norway.

In the near-future, if Americans continue to endure lackluster orgasms, some experts warn that women may begin to seek pleasure from sexbots. Guys, if you don’t want to become redundant, you may want to ask your Spanish and Chilean friends for some pointers. We recommend eating spicier foods. Science has shown that the hotter your diet is, the hotter your sex life is.

This Week In WTF?!

Robert Pattinson and the Dog is the New Richard Gere and the Gerbil

Each week we take a digital spin around the globe to check all the ways people are getting kinky and pushing the envelope of what is or isn’t sexy. This week, we found some real face-palm examples of people mixing the privacy of sex with their public lives.

Robert Pattinson Was Asked To Perform A Sex Act On A Dog In His Latest Film

In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, actor Robert Pattinson recounted a story from his latest film, Good Time. In the movie, his character has a weird fixation on dogs. How weird? According to Pattinson, the filmmakers asked him to play a scene where he “basically [gives] the dog a hand job.” The Twilight actor went on to explain how the director of the film encouraged him. “I asked the trainer [about it] because the director was like, ‘Just do it for real, man! Don’t be a pussy!’ And the dog’s owner was like, 'Well, he’s a breeder. I mean, you can. You just gotta massage the inside of his thighs.”

So, did Pattinson end up pleasuring man’s best friend? Short answer: no. Instead he gave a handy to a prosthetic dog penis. The scene was ultimately cut from the movie, because who the hell wants to see that? PETA was quick to praise Pattinson for his refusal to sexually gratify a dog. We’d just like to say—well, we don’t actually have much to say this time. This whole story shocked even us.

Man Pleasures Himself During The Emoji Movie

Here’s another tale of finding illicit pleasure in the cinema. Apparently, this week, a New Jersey man went to go see The Emoji Movie and he found the premise particularly arousing. He was spotted giving himself manual stimulation in the theater as the movie played. That raises the question, which emoji got him so hot that he had to handle his business right then and there? Eggplant or taco?

A Pop-Up In NYC Asks Women To Masturbate On The The Street

If you’re visiting New York later this summer and you can’t get tickets to Hamilton, there’s a new way to get your kicks in the Big Apple. The British sex toymaker Hot Octopuss is planning a pop-up that’s designed as a space for women to try their latest sex toy. They did the same thing for men last year—now it’s women’s turn. Hot Octopuss will offer a private room for women to step in and road-test their new vibrator, the Queen Bee. That’s one fun way to help New Yorkers unwind from the stress of their broken subway system.

Speaking of subways, over in the United Kingdom, people keep leaving their sex toys on the tube. That makes us wonder, are they using them on the Underground? Or do they just sort of fall out of their bags? Either way, we’re happy to see more Brits embrace their kinky side.

New Jersey Man Arrested After He’s Discovered Walking Along Freeway With Sex Toy

What’s going on? Why are all the other states trying to outdo Florida these days? This week, New Jersey cops discovered a naked man taking a hike along the highway with a sex toy in his ass. When he saw the police approach, he pulled the toy from his butt and tossed it aside, but by then it was too late. The cops arrested him and took him into custody. They eventually released him, but kept his sex toy. Hey Florida, if you wanna keep your crown as the kinkiest place in America, you gotta try harder.

Luke Duke Got Popped For Some Dukes of Hazzard-ous Sex Assault

Tom Wopat, the actor who became famous for playing the brunette half of the Duke brothers, was arrested this week for sexual assault. According to TMZ, Wopat was rehearsing a scene for a play when he accosted an actress from the show by walking up behind her and grabbing her butt. After he was arrested, Wopat allegedly told the police, “Fuck 'em all.” Previously, Wopat reportedly touched another woman without her consent. And in a third incident, a woman claimed “he peeled sunburned skin off her arm.” That last one doesn’t even sound sexual. It just sounds gross. When asked for comment, Wopat denied the charges. And was last seen jumping a river. (No, not really.)
