wo is better than one. Or if you think more can be merrier, then flip straight through to our sex feature on threesomes. To celebrate our second anniversary, we doubled up as often as we could in putting this edition together. Our retro of the past two years shows all 24 covers we produced since launching in South Africa – they contain beautiful women, local and MISS APRIL KELLY MC LENNAN P61 foreign. Our best-sellers have been Christina Storm and Pamela Anderson. The covers list the names of famous people we interviewed. They showcase our designers’ dexterity and wit with great concepts such as the James Bunnybond, those famous sideways lips and Eve from Madam & Eve as the first Playmaid of the Year. Yolandi Malherbe has been one of our most popular Playmates and for her dedicated fans, she graces our cover this month. Cape Town model, Kelly Mc Lennan is Miss April, and she is gorgeous. Try and imagine where you have seen her before. Thailand celebrates their New Year in April, so our themed shoot is about two (yes, two) women with Asian elephants in Thailand. PROD OK EDIT OK ART OK PDF FINAL RELEASE - REV1 DATE: 1/10/13 But, what has set PLAYBOY apart internationally for 60 years and NOTES: type corrx locally for the past two years is that we are so much more than just a centerfold. Most people really read PLAYBOY for our articles. This month we dig into the VFX industry’s major gripes with the international filmmakers who are bankrupting them. Have you seen JO-ANN STRAUSS P57 RIAAN MANSER P33 those green profile pictures on Facebook? Read the story by Thinus van Rooyen behind it. Then, set time aside to learn how modern day cookie-cutter new age religious mixing-and-matching can go horribly wrong. The group sex sounds great – the death from dehydration in a mountain cave not quite so sexy. Luka Vracar investigates, in another feature, why certain pairs have become iconic. We know that holds true when it comes to breasts. What else did he uncover? Each PLAYBOY magazine has had the same staple ingredients for years. Our 20 Questions is with famous Jo-Ann Strauss – Miss South Africa in 2000 and hottest new TV producer. Riaan Manser, ultra-adventurer sat for our main interview. Brendan Jack snuck in at the back door just before deadline as he launches soon with the next great thing on Comedy Central. Fiction comes from Ray Bradbury and marries werewolves, Frankenstein and other scary monsters into mystery. Our PLAYBOY Forum summarizes the mixed reactions we received on our anti-rape cover last month. Then, there are always the PLAYBOY lifestyle snacks – films, games, music, gadgets, and fashion – to feast upon… As you may know, time sure flies when you DIAMOND MOUNTAIN P514 are having fun, and even though at times the business of bringing PLAYBOY back into South PLAYBOAT P87 Africa might have been challenging, our team loves nothing better than putting together a next edition for our readers. You should be able to feel the passion drip out of these pages. If not, create your own :)

YOLANDI MALHERBE Yolandi Malherbe first posed for PLAYBOY South Africa as Miss July 2011. Since that date, she has worked extremely hard on her career with great determination. “Back then,” she explains, “I approached, and begged, people for a little exposure. The industry is big and I seemed like ‘just another girl trying to be a model.’ Since then I have earned my opportunities and I've come to a point where I get most of my work via referrals.”

DOUBLE by luka vracar

TROUBLE THERE IS A CHINESE SAYING: “THE BEST THINGS COME IN PAIRS.” FROM CRIMINALS TO CONDIMENTS, COMPLEMENTARY PAIRS ARE EVERYWHERE. AS PLAYBOY SOUTH AFRICA CELEBRATES ITS SECOND BIRTHDAY, WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE DUOS AND ICONIC PAIRINGS.

BONNIE & CLYDE

Bonnie Parker joined Clyde Barrow’s life of crime soon after meeting him. It was love at first sight, and for the next four years they lived a whirlwind romance filled with robberies, shootouts with police, and jailbreaks before being gunned down in a police ambush in 1934. They quickly became the first celebrity criminals of the 20th

FISH & CHIPS

Traditionally served wrapped in paper, battered fish fillets and French-fries are enjoyed throughout the world. The combination originated in Great Britain during the second half of the 19th Century when trawlers in the North Sea provided an abundance of cod and haddock. It quickly became an affordable street food for the working class – hence the reason it was served in newspaper (until the late 1980s when it was ruled unsafe for food to come into contact with newspaper without greaseproof paper in between). In recent years fish and chips is less popular, with the almighty burger the king of street and fast food. But few duos in the culinary world have achieved such popularity. During WWII fish and chips was the only food not to be rationed. It is no wonder Winston Churchill called them “The Good Companions.”

Century, and the fact that they were lovers turned them into anti-hereos. In the decades that followed, the legacy of Bonnie & Clyde feature extensively in popular culture. The notorious duo still command great appeal, representing love, the live-fast-die-young attitude, and rebellion against any type of system that seeks to restrain or oppress.

SALT & PEPPER

Whether you are a coy vegetarian, a carnivorous beast, or something called a pescatarian, dining on your grub would not be complete without the most essential duo of the gastronomies. Naturally, the French are responsible for this most ambrosial of pairs. Initially, Ancient Romans ate their salty and sweet food at the same time, before the French decided it was most unsophisticated to eat Crème Brûlée together with your pork chops. After the order was established, King Louis XIV declared that all Middle Eastern spices masked the natural flavors of his entrée. He did like pepper though, and so salt and pepper ruled under the Divine Right of Kings. And they still do today.

6

BACON & EGGS

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, the bacon and eggs duo is its most important ingredient. Sure, it may not be the healthiest option, but according to some US physicians surveyed in the 1920s by an Austrian-American chap called Edward Bernays, people are recommended to eat a hearty breakfast. And according to Bernays, none are so hearty as bacon and eggs. But where did the idea to put bacon and eggs together come from? Well, Bernays claims he was encouraged to promote hearty breakfasts by his hiking partner, his uncle, Sigmund Freud. So there you go, the man who gave us the Oedipus Complex may well be responsible for the sizzling, golden treasure that is bacon and eggs, too.


FEATURE PERFECT PAIRS

BREASTS

You often hear a guy describe himself as a leg-man or an ass-man. But the simple truth is that every single man starts off as a breast man. When those initial stirrings of puberty strike and young lads start to grasp their sexuality with both hands, the first changes they see in their fairer sex counterparts are those mysterious orbs on her chest. Men love how breasts look, how they feel and how they move. Breasts and nipples are erogenous zones, and

second base is every lad’s first step to learning anything about a woman’s body. It is little wonder that men are so obsessed, breasts are the most defined part of a woman’s body and that’s why they attract attention. Jerry Seinfeld said that if women walked around with their breasts exposed and their heads covered, men everywhere would be out buying Heads Illustrated. It is a case of wanting something you don’t have, and for that very reason, breasts will never become boring.

MICK JAGGER & KEITH RICHARDS

BASS & TREBLE

One could argue that the songwriting partnership of Paul McCartney and John Lennon was supreme, but for our money, nothing can match the dynamic firestorm that is Jagger and Richards. Probably one of the most complex relationships in the history of rock ‘n roll, the Jagger and Richards partnership is littered with trial and triumph. While McCartney and Lennon wrote pop classics, Richards and Jagger were writing songs with far more history and depth. Bold statement. Example: ”Gimme Shelter“ is a haunting anti-war cry and a Stones classic. “Rape, Murder; It’s just a shot away,” sings Merry Clayton, her voice breaking with intensity. However, the original music was written by Richards during a night of depression and anger, during the very same night he realized Jagger was having an affair with Anita Pallenberg, Richards' girlfriend, and the mother of three of his children.

TESTICLES

Men have a dear relationship with their penis satellites, and for good reason. To quote Eddie Murphy, “You don’t have to kick no nuts to hurt somebody, you can just graze nuts.” A prolonged squeeze of the testes can make a man black

Every man will admit to having that secret desire to roll his fingers across the row of controls on an amplifier, turning them all the way up in a single swipe, whether it be on a guitar amp before a roaring jam, or on a huge stereo at that crucial moment of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” We’ve seen it in movies. In real life though, finding the fine balance between the bass and treble requires subtlety, and they always come hand-in-hand. Simply put the bass and treble control the output of low and mid-high frequency ranges respectively. These settings usually depend on the type of music you are listening to, and the setting. Raising the output increases bass and decibels and lowering the output increases treble and decreases decibel. Tip: start with everything on its highest setting and look out for distortion, then work your way back. Or just go the Nigel Tufnel route and turn everything up to 11.

out, and a hard strike can sterilize him. That is a tough break for the gender that is taught to be rough, and where manliness is traditionally measured by the size of ones cajones (metaphorically, of course). But the fellas do grow bigger, able to double in size during sex. In

fact, at the point of release testicles elevate and make contact with the body. You want to last longer? Pull those bad boys back down. As for the reason men regularly have a hand down their pants while watching TV? It feels good, but it is also a natural instinct to check for dysfunction.


MISS APRIL

Just one day on the beach with our sexy new playmate is enough to set the pulse racing. We introduce you to Cape Town model Kelly Mc Lennan. The 23-year-old sultry vixen has a fondness for the movies of Guy Ritchie, alternate rock music, and tattoos. Do not let this cheeky shoot fool you, with her intoxicating eyes and dripping sex-appeal Kelly is as fiery as a Cape Town summer. “We wanted to make Kelly's photoshoot a little naughty and carefree,” says photographer Leah Hawker. “From iconic and internationally recognizable Cape Town spots, such as the Muizenberg changing rooms to the picturesque beaches that face Table Mountain from the Tableview area, shooting nudes in public places definitely added to the ambience of the images!” We could not agree more.

he phones were ringing and the lines were forming. From his second-floor film studio window, Billy Bob Rizzo viewed the mob of extras below, laughing out loud, clapped his hands and spun about to slap a telephone receiver to each ear, talking across them to his secretary, whose voice sounded as frazzled as her hair. “Ms Greene, get me Makeup. Hello, Arnie? Get over here with those costumes. Bye. Willy? How’s the set coming? Nail it! You got three hours! Ms Greene, what’s that in your hand?” “The portable phone.” “Throw it!” “God, I wish I could.” She handed it to him and was half out the door when he cried, “Get me Publicity!” The door shut. “Where was I? Oh yeah.” He discovered the portable phone in his hand. “Speak!” “Billy Bob,” a woman’s voice said, “this is your lover.” “Which one?” he said. “Hey, I know. The Bride of Frankenstein?” “Do I get the job?” “Did you try out for it?” “If that was a tryout, yeah. Am I hired?” “Hired, cookie.” “Don’t you know my name?” “When it comes to me, I’ll call.” “Billy Bob, you son of a bitch.” “Now, that’s a name!” He hung up. “Publicity,” said a voice at the door. Ms Greene was half in, half out. Billy Bob seized the phone on his right, silence. Phone on his left, a voice. “Napoleon!” said Billy Bob. “I didn’t know you were back from Moscow.” “Tijuana is no nun’s retreat,” said the voice, falsetto with hysteria. “How can Publicity work while I’m gone if you don’t stay in touch? Have you seen the battalions of bums and tramps around the Bastille?”

“I just threw ‘em some cake. You gonna help me size ‘em up? We need two monsters, two Phantoms, three Draculas, four Hunchbacks…” “I know, I know. You going to review the troops?” “I’m already there!” Tossing the phone to Ms Greene as he ran, he heard her cry, “Sol’s on the line, says he’s cut the funds for your London After Midnight ride!” They had put the people, once “homeless” but now extras, behind the studio front office from which Billy Bob Rizzo now burst. He squinted through the noonday heat at a squad of Quasimodos to the left, 12 of the Baron’s monsters, various sizes, to the right, and a mixed crowd of Transylvanian Counts and Paris Opera Phantoms between. My God, he thought, they’re awful without makeup! And started his march on the horror battalion when a tiny man in a checkered suit, just short of being a midget, yanked his elbow. He looked down at Kennisaw Mort, film critic for Daily Variety, whose reviews, like his name, were one half narcosis, the rest catalepsy. He had killed enough films and actors to fill Forest Lawn’s mausoleums. Now he clung to Billy Bob’s elbow as Billy Bob plowed through the hot dust of a typical Valley noon. “Say,” said Kennisaw Mort, nodding ahead, “you’re not really going to hire ginks to wander around your Fright Night Theme Mall are you, to get in the way of people coming in and out of your Midnight Chateau, yes? “You got it.” Billy Bob nodded yet another lineup to one side. “Those are the starters. Weather’s so hot out here we need substitutes to take over every hour or so, give the monsters a rest.”

PLAYTIME TAG HEUER CARRERA CALIBRE 1887 Jack Heuer Edition – 45mm Winner of the prestigious "Aiguille d'or " at Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. The technical details are all leading-edge, with elements borrowed from Vodafone McLaren Mercedes’ Formula 1 team and aeronautics: black titanium carbide steel bezel, hand-brushed and polished to a high sheen; polished, fine brushed and sandblasted steel and titanium cage; tachymetre and pulsometre on the dial. The innovative asymmetrical case design is based on the Carrera Mikrogirder – slightly rising at an angle at the top, where the crown and chronograph pushers are located. Jack Heuer’s coat of arms and signature decorate the smoked sapphire caseback, through which can be seen the audacious 39-jewel Calibre 1887 movement.

CARRERA CALIBRE 1887 CHRONOGRAPH WITH CERAMIC BEZEL – 43mm Based on the bestselling Calibre 16 design, but outfitted with the superlative Calibre 1887 movement and other new technical elements, this edition comes with ceramic bezel with tachymetre scale, fine brushed and polished steel case and innovative H-shaped steel bracelet. The Arabic numerals and the date window are hand applied. The viewing case back is in clear, unscratchable sapphire.

New detailing include a sandblasted black titanium case, ceramic bezel with tachymetre scale, re-engineered black folding clasp for the high-tech “soft-touch” alligator strap. The caseback, now in smoked sapphire, offers full viewing of the impressive Calibre 1887. The counter-inspired numerals are in hand-applied black gold, as is the date window.

CARRERA CALIBRE 1887 CHRONOGRAPH – 41mm A pure classic in the great Carrera tradition, with an uncluttered blue dial, discrete hour markers and elegant 41mm case size. Counters are at 12, 9 and 6. The chronograph pusher has superb operating feel and the overall look is very masculine and elegant, and very Carrera. With classic leather strap or new curved steel bracelet.

CARRERA HERITAGE CALIBRE 1887 CHRONOGRAPH – 41mm A new Calibre 1887 with the beloved “Heritage” dial on a standard-size case, replete with larger, very stylish and easy-toread Arabic numerals, blued hands and a new curved steel bracelet or traditional blue leather strap. The result is a timeless luxury look, sober and refined.

RESPONSE TO OUR MARCH COVER

W

is a publicity stunt, I don’t agree with you. This comes across as a very sincere message, and one that one can clearly see they feel strongly about. Unfortunately their industry is a double-edge sword, and they WILL get back lash from this. Reality is that PLAYBOY serves a market that appreciates the naked form, and women, but when you think about it; it’s not their responsibility to educate their readers on what is right and wrong. But they are still doing it, or at least trying. And for that, I take my hat off to them.” (MediaSlut on www.mediaslutza.com) “Sometimes these organisations miss the point – women’s dignity is not so volatile that it’s ‘ripped’ from us each time a naked woman is on the cover of a magazine. Really now! And instead of criticizing initiatives like these, they should be working together with companies like PLAYBOY in getting the message across. Enough with the complaints – maybe, just maybe it’s time for solutions.” (Lerato Matsaneng on www.media24.co.za)

“There is clearly a demand for PLAYBOY and they are not going away. If you want to attack PLAYBOY, then by all means go ahead – your freedom of speech is as guaranteed as theirs. However, to use this initiative from PLAYBOY to put on record their stance on the issue of rape to attack them is terrible timing at best and damaging to the cause women’s rights at worse. Well done PLAYBOY. We needed to hear this message from you loud and clear BECAUSE of the content you publish.” (Elroy Parkinson Fred Smith on www.iol.co.za) “These people who claim to be protecting the dignity of women are doing exactly the opposite. They are treating women like mindless children who are always giving up their dignity to do what men want. No one would say anything if that was a picture of a man showing his back. That woman made a choice to pose for the magazine and has a right to have her choice respected. She doesn't need someone else deciding for her that she is being exploited. There are plenty of women out there who really are being exploited. Save your ire for their plight.” (Ebrahim Allie on iol.co.za) “I think this is a great cover. It catches the eye of guys, gets their attention, and reminds them that in NO situation is it ever OK to ‘take it’ when it's not being given. If this were an ad it would be a perfect ad. Disruptive, attention getting, effectively communicates the point, and has obvious viral appeal. It’s a great job from a magazine mostly associated with exploitation.” (Jouist2 on www. buzzfeed.com) “If any of you are naive enough to think feminists are ‘anti-sex’ please read @mishsolomon’s PLAYBOY column: http:// bit.ly/ZeQHdC.” (Stuart Thomas on Twitter)

We have been impressed by the readers’ reactions, male and female alike.

“Yes totally agree. Rather than slamming something like this, rally behind the concept of rape of magazines using their advertorial space to warn about rape. I think it’s admirable of PLAYBOY to do so. I’m a woman and I find it tasteful but eloquent.” (Lauren Flynn Govender on www.iol.co.za) “Big respect to PLAYBOY!! Rape doesn't have much to do with sexuality or desire. Only in fairly unusual cases. But I’m super impressed. Let’s hear some men’s voices speaking out!” (Gillian van Zyl on www.iol.co.za) SE RISE SE RI IARI ILIA IA MIL IL M FAM FA BREA BR BR EAK LF EA LF SELF SE K FA SE K UR UR YOUR YO YO “ ‘We oppose any picture or graphic that O O U U O T T K K U T ASSSK A A W W OW O HO H depicts women as any less of a human H being.’ OH PLEASE!!

hen we decided last month, at the last minute, to pull our scheduled cover in favor of this one featured below – a statement against rape and violence against women – we did not know what kind of reaction to expect. But we passionately believed that the time was now to take a stand against rape and violence against women. And we believe that we should continue to talk about this topic. We have, on the whole, been buoyed so far by the response. Although one journalist decided to headline his article, “PLAYBOY’s Racy Anti-Rape Cover Shot Down,” and he quotes two gender justice specialists as being critical of our cover, we don’t believe the actual content of the article justified the headline. Needless to say, when BuzzFeed picked it up, they edited it down to the most “racy” quotes and that, in turn, spun into cyberspace. Meanwhile, we did radio and television interviews, where the discussion turned to the issue of consent and rape being a men’s issue. Regardless of where we have spotted discussion (something we hoped would take place) and even dissent (which we knew was a possibility) about the cover, we have been impressed by the readers’ reactions, male and female alike. Perhaps our most surprising compliment came from Marie Claire magazine who declared: “Why PLAYBOY South Africa’s Cover is Amazing For Women.” And, from feminists who follow Michelle Solomon, our guest columnist, or feminists who stood up for Zerlina Maxwell in the US who recently spoke out about shifting the conversation from women having to police themselves to educating men not to rape (Maxwell was threatened with death and rape after her comments. Go figure). All of these people get what we are trying to do: bring the discussion into the realm where it counts, among men. It is, after all, a men’s issue. And we are a men’s magazine. Here are some of our favourite comments from bloggers, reader responses to news reports, and Twitter. We publish them warts and all, so pardon the bad grammar: “For those of you who might say that this

In fact, Karen-Suzanne Claren, in her mid-40s and the mother of two, is thrilled to have her great bum gracing the cover of our March issue!
