In the March/April 2017 issue of the magazine we featured this stunning pictorial shot by photographer Dove Shore, featuring the London-based model Tess Jantscheks. We thought their shoot’s the perfect way to ease into your weekend. And we can’t think of many better places to be on a Saturday morning.

Are You Her Fuckboy?

What is a fuckboy? It’s a pertinent question of our time, and not everyone agrees on the answer. This month, a confused reader asked the Playboy Advisor what it meant when his ex broke up with him via a text that read, “Sorry, but I can’t keep dating a fuckboy.” (That’s rough.) To help him out, our sex life coach Bridget Phetasy breaks down classic fuckboy behavior. As a friend of hers puts it, a fuckboy is “a lame-ass dude whose male friends’ misogynistic opinions run his life.” We shouldn’t have to say it, but don’t be that guy. If you need help figuring out if you are one, though, check these signs.

How The World Has Changed in the 10 Years Since Kim K’s Sex Tape Dropped

Can you imagine a time when you didn’t know the name Kim Kardashian? She’s been a fixture in pop culture for a decade. It all began with that notorious sex tape. Ten years ago, she was working as Brandy’s stylist when she wasn’t busy organizing Paris Hilton’s closet. But after she had sex with Brandy’s brother Ray J and their sex tape leaked, Kim skyrocketed to fame. By the end of the year, she had her own reality show on E! and the newly minted celebutante soon eclipsed the fame of both Brandy and Paris. Now, she’s a doting mother, happily married to Kanye and easily one of the most famous people on the planet. They say sex sells. In Kim’s case, she managed to buy the world with her reaping. In fact, hers may be the only family business that ever started with a sex tape. Take a look back and peep her world-changing story here.

Modern Life

When It Comes to Sex, This is the New Normal

“Change is the only constant in life.” The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said that, way back in ancient times. He was spot on. Seems to be doubly true for sex. We only have so many body parts and so many places to put them. But what we do with them constantly evolves. Here’s a round-up of our New Normal.

What Does A Normal Vagina Look Like?

Labiaplasty is plastic surgery for a vagina, or more accurately, for the vulva, the external portion. Some women are wracked with worry that they have unattractive labia, aka their southern lips. To allay their fears, they’re turning to surgeons to beautify their flowers. But this raises an interesting question of genital aesthetics: What should a normal vagina look like?

Why Are Millennials Choosing to Be Sterilized in Their 20s?

Recently, science has been making long strides in the march toward a male birth control pill, but we’re not there yet. Tired from waiting for better birth control, millennials are now opting to be sterilized in their 20s. It’s called the “child free movement.” And it’s not just because they’re too cheap to buy condoms. These folks have a plethora of reasons, like the desire to not pass on a genetic disease. Let’s just hope they don’t regret their choice the way some folks regret a shitty tattoo.

The Condom That Rates Your Performance

You ever ask a partner if the sex was good for them? Yeah, maybe don’t do that. You’d know if it was good. If you can’t tell, or if they don’t say in a breathless voice, “Now that…was a good fuck,” next time, try to ask your partner what they like. (Women will tell you, if you ask.) Or there’s also this new way to get feedback: a condom that can rate your performance. It’s a smart condom, one that will measure things like the girth of your penis and the quantity of your thrusts. Yep! We may not be trying hard to do good and save the world from climate change, but at least we have a condom that can tell us when we’re good and hard.

Spain Opens First Sex Doll Brothel…So, Would You?

We talk a lot about sexbots and sex dolls because practically each week there’s a new update in the sexual science. This week, we have a new first: the world’s first sex doll brothel. The place is run by toymaker Lumidolls and housed in an apartment in Barcelona. The proprietors offer four sex dolls. How much does an encounter cost? A mere $115 to $160. We have just one question: who cleans the sex dolls? That seems like a truly terrible job.

Hard Science

Can You Handle an Open Relationship?

Another aspect of our sex lives that’s evolving is the rise of polyamory. Of course, not everyone is down to share their partner. Maybe you are, maybe you aren’t. If you’re curious, but don’t feel like hopping on 3nder to look for a polyamorist to give the idea a test drive, Hard Science has got you covered. Dr. Justin Lehmiller helps you answer the question: Could you handle an open relationship?

This Week In WTF?!

Forbidden, Illicit Sex Always Feels Extra Kinky

Not all sex crimes are created equally. Some folks need to feel the illicit pleasure of forbidden sex. But there’s a big difference between forbidden and truly illicit pleasures. These stories should help make the distinction clear.

This Dude Flashed a Woman in Intercourse

Look, we don’t mean intercourse like sex, we mean Intercourse, like the town in Pennsylvania. Flashing a lover is one thing. Flashing a stranger? That ain’t kosher, and it’s definitely illegal.

Man Attacks His Partner With a Dildo After She Criticized His Performance

What is wrong with people? Hitting a partner while having sex can be totally cool if they’re into it. Consent is sexy. BDSM is kinky fun. But beating your partner with a sex toy is neither. If you’re wondering, why yes, they do live in Florida. In a trailer park. But hey, let’s not shame them. Let’s shame them for being the Most Florida Couple of the Week.

Why Do So Many People Fantasize About Having Sex With Their Stepmom?

You’ve probably seen the Stepmom category on a porn tube. You may have wondered who actually wants to get off to their dad’s (or mom’s) wife? Seems kinda incestuous to us. Well, a lot of people do, apparently. It’s that old thrill of forbidden fruit.
