The controversial French author Michel Houellebecq is one of the few contemporary European fiction writers to be translated and widely read in America. In Sex With Esther, explicit sex leads to a higher truth. "There's a disparity between the insignificant visual appearance of sexual organs and the sensation of touch," Houellebecq says. "It's not a good idea to make films about sex. Literature is better."

Babe of the Month: Melyssa Ford
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
Melyssa Ford sits in her dressing room, wearing a tiny red silk robe. It hangs open in front, way down, so that we keep catching a glint of her navel ring. She makes no move to cover up--this woman is accustomed to being ogled. "I have a 20-inch waist," she mentions, then glances at a paper cup on the makeup table. "I drank some coffee, so I'm a little bloated. It's probably more like 23 right now." Credit her insane proportions to DNA; for what it's worth, she's a rare mash-up of Russian, Norwegian and Barbadian heritage. A former hip-hip video vixen, Melyssa now hosts BET Style and pens a sex column for Smooth magazine under the name Jessica Rabbit. She earned the tag waitressing at Diddy's restaurant Justin's. "I wore a dress that accentuated my best features, and before long, people were talking," Melyssa recalls. "This girl said, 'I've never seen a waist so little, and your breasts and your booty are so big. Your body reminds me of Jessica Rabbit's.' I'm not shy about my shape. I wear cutoff T-shirts to show how little my waist is and tight jeans to show how bodacious my booty is." How does Melyssa take her men? "I like that football-player build," she says. "My man's got to have some monster thighs." With this, we're ushered out. It's time for Melyssa to trade the red silk robe for black lace, and for us to take the Thigh-Master out of mothballs.

Response of Whistle-Blower Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam war, to questions at a New Jersey fund-raiser about leaks concerning secret interrogation facilities in Eastern Europe: "I think there are more and more people saying, 'Who are we? And what are we becoming? This is not America.' It seems to me there's no way of remedying the wrongdoing without bringing it out. People should consider giving up their careers and taking the kind of risks our soldiers are being asked to take. I assumed that I was breaking the law. I assumed I would go to prison for the rest of my life."

This past November the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released an analysis of 157,252 HIV infections reported from 2001 to 2004 in 33 states (not including California). The agency found that 44 percent of those infected believed they got the virus from male-to-male sexual contact, 17 percent from sharing a needle with another IV drug user and 34 percent from heterosexual contact.

Jack Nicholson: a boozy ACLU lawyer and perpetual screwup who hits the road with motorcycling hippie freaks Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper. Drugs of choice: Jim Beam and, later, grass, which was actually toked on camera. Why the buzz: Nicholson gave a career-making performance in this 1969 counterculture smash. Downer: He didn't win the best supporting actor Oscar that year.

Since the success of Watchmen, Alan Moore has tried his hand at crime (From Hell), pornography (Lost Girls) and metafiction (Promethea), along with upbeat adventure (Tom Strong) that he characterizes as "penance" for the gloom of his oftimitated early work. Now in the process of retiring from comics, he shares his opinions on his influences, his legacy and the films his work has inspired.

It's easy to lose track of where you came from in the City of Angels, but recent transplant Holley Ann Dorrough's Southern roots run deep. "Besides my family, I miss my sweet tea," says the even sweeter 19-year-old Alabama native and aspiring pop singer. "I guess I consider myself a Southern belle. To me that means a cute girl who gets along with everybody and aims to please." Holley has an irresistible Southern charm that instantly impressed Hef. "I got on the guest list for the Midsummer Night's Dream party at the Mansion and happened to be standing at the entrance when Hef walked in," she says, smiling. "I said to him, 'Hi, I'm Holley, and my pictures should be in your office. So heads up--I'm your next Playmate.' I had to do it!" We love a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to ask for it. Romance-wise, Miss April likes old-fashioned, down-home fun. Southern food is her specialty--corn bread, fried okra, chicken-fried steak--and she'd rather cook a meal for her date and cuddle on the couch than get dressed up and hit an expensive restaurant. Still, she does have one material wish worth mentioning: "I want a pink 1960s convertible with a white leather interior and Playmate stitched across the backseat in pink." So long, Alabama; hello, L.A.

Jonathan Littman
I once shot 84 on a tough course and, like all duffers, dream that one day my errant drives will straighten and my wayward putts will fall effortlessly into the cup. Golf tempts us with the possibility of perfection, even for just a single hole, and this keeps us coming back after all the shanks and screams. Fanatical by nature, we golfers buy countless training gimmicks and videos and books in the vain hope that our swing might one day turn sweet. But perhaps I'm more fanatical than some. I've gotten on an airplane and flown cross-country in the faint hope that I might see, smell, hear and feel golf perfection in the presence of the sport's masters--in their own house of worship.

Candice Michelle has a wicked little fantasy. Wearing a lace-up bustier, tight shorts and thigh-high leather boots, she enters a dark room full of strangers. Another woman approaches. Candice pounces, wrapping her thighs around the woman's neck, gripping her tight. There are variations. Sometimes they struggle, sometimes they scream, but it always ends the same: Candice walks away with the woman's belt and, lo and behold, the championship title in World Wrestling Entertainment's women's division.
