The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins on Evolution, God and Morality

Couchella Rocks: Why Concerts Are Better Online Than in Person

The first weekend of Coachella's two-weekend run just ended, and it was incredible, featuring a generous mixture of hip-hop (Outkast), indie rock (Arcade Fire) and dance acts (Disclosure). Even better, I didn't have to buy a ticket or travel to Indio, California to see a minute of it. I caught the whole thing from my… » 4/16/14 5:01pm Wednesday 5:01pm

Bros, This Is How Your Slut-Shaming Is Backfiring. A Sex Researcher…

When a Duke frat boy recognized a classmate in the porn clip he was watching, the gossip was just too good. He spread the news among some other bros on campus, and the rumor soon traveled from Duke's campus to the blogosphere (including Playboy SFW). Belle Knox, as the student revealed her porn identity to be, was… » 4/16/14 2:00pm Wednesday 2:00pm

The Light, Crisp Wine That You Should Be Drinking This Spring

Most of us cold-weather oenophiles have spent this brutal, seemingly never-ending winter fortifying ourselves against the freeze with rich, full-bodied red wines. Personally, I consumed a record number of North Coast California Syrahs and Loire Valley Cabernet Francs. Not to mention all the accompanying pork and beef… » 4/15/14 4:00pm Tuesday 4:00pm

The Catchy, Irritating and Downright Weird World of YouTube's Hottest…

The video for Alison Gold's "Shush Up" begins with the pre-teen singer covered in gold glitter and wearing a gold lamé top and tiny shorts. She plays both a prison warden and a convict executed by electric chair before evaporating into a gold rain that falls on a dancing crowd as she shouts, "Crank it or just shush up!"… » 4/15/14 10:00am Tuesday 10:00am

Mad Men: The Ads Don Wasn't Supposed To Tear Out Of Megan's Magazine

On the season premiere of Mad Men last night Megan implores Don to not tear the ads out of her magazine. We just happened to notice from the cover that it was the February 1969 issue of Playboy that she was rightly safeguarding. We dipped into our archives to find out which ads appeared in that issue and gathered the… » 4/14/14 2:12pm Monday 2:12pm

“It's like I was a robot, and you were charging me” We-Vibe 4 Vibrator, …

Hop into the Test Bed, a bi-weekly series where couples try out high-tech sex toys—curated by pleasure marketplace My Secret Luxury—and then discuss what happened over G-chat.

13 Hours in San Diego: Beaches, Tacos and Beer in ‘America’s Finest…

Living in San Diego is a little bit like living in the movie Groundhog Day—minus the snow, of course. Apart from two months in which the city merely gets cloudy (May gray and June gloom), the city's weather is relentlessly pleasant. It's what draws people from everywhere else in the world to this overstuffed,… » 4/11/14 5:35pm 4/11/14 5:35pm

Mad Men Refresher: Everything You Need To Know About Everyone

Mad Men returns for its seventh and final season this Sunday—make that the first half of its seventh and final season, because far be it from AMC to let a prestigious cash cow die without milking it vigorously (and prestigiously). Like Breaking Bad, the final season will be split across two years, eight episodes per,… » 4/11/14 1:19pm 4/11/14 1:19pm

Don't Worry, They'll Blow It: Draft Day and Sad-Sack Cleveland Sports…

If Job were a jock, he'd have played in Cleveland—at least in the years when his wealth evaporated, his body broke out in boils and agony attended his every waking moment. Only after testing the limits of human suffering was Job rewarded with a long, prosperous life. In professional sports, this is known as leaving… » 4/11/14 12:22pm 4/11/14 12:22pm

The Playboy Interview: Stephen Colbert on Politics, Grief and Bill…

Well, the #CancelColbert people got their wish. Sort of. Stephen Colbert will leave the Colbert Report to replace David Letterman on the Late Show. Since we'll be getting a lot more of the real Stephen next year when he moves from Comedy Central to CBS, we thought you'd want to familiarize yourself with the man behind… » 4/10/14 1:33pm 4/10/14 1:33pm

The Cocktail Scarlet A: Reclaiming the Honor of Apple Booze

Once upon a time, apple cocktails had a great reputation. Or better put, they had a great reputation until the late 1990s. That's when DeKuyper launched the awful Jolly-Rancher-like liqueur Pucker. (Before Pucker, DeKuyper was best known for its "Hot Damn!" cinnamon schnapps; it should have stopped while it was behind.)… » 4/10/14 12:30pm 4/10/14 12:30pm
