If Webster's dictionary had an entry for "super supermodel," Carol Alt would be on the very short list of women pictured. The 48-year-old actress, author and businesswoman remains a stunner thanks, she says, to the raw-food diet she began following about 14 years ago. Now, with the help of photog­rapher Timothy White, Carol sheds the clothes she has spent her career presenting and shows off her natural assets in her first nude pictorial. We asked the ravishing raw-food enthusiast what it took to be a successful model during the 1980s, when she was referred to as the Face and appeared on hundreds of magazine covers. "What worked for me was loving what I did and breaking the tension by being funny," says Alt. "I'm a clown—a clown in a high-fashion model's body. If you can't laugh at yourself, it's pretty hopeless."

For years people have said Axl Rose broke up Guns N' Roses (Young Guns, September). But Steven Adler was the only member who was fired; the rest quit. As it stands, Rose is the only one who has stayed true to his principles and the supposed principles of the band. He has waited 15 years to put out Chinese Democracy and may wait longer. In an age of one-hit wonders and record com­panies content to cash in, it's his music, his band and his way.

Although he calls me, rather unkindly, a "scumbag dirtbag" and "maggot," I would like to thank Dana White for fulfilling my boyhood dream of seeing my name in playboy (Playboy Interview, September). Of course, White is an idiot. He went to sleep one night and woke up standing on third base, think­ing he hit a triple. In reality, without promoter Lorenzo Fertitta's money, he would still be making Jazzercise tapes. To his credit, White has done a wonder­ful job branding the Ultimate Fighting Championship, but he didn't invent mixed martial arts, and the UFC doesn't have a monopoly on great fighters. (Given his head start, he should have 10 stars like Chuck Liddell, but instead he keeps trotting Liddell back out to take

As the publishers of the swinger site kasidie.com, we love your sex-positive reporting. However, we must take issue with your use of the derogatory term wife swapping in Swinging From A to Z (September). In fact, it is gener­ally the woman who leads the couple into the lifestyle and initiates sexual activity at parties. For lack of a better term, swinging is better referred to as negotiated nonmonogamy, since both partners have an equal voice and must agree on boundaries.

The September issue is perfection. Anna Faris is hilarious, the Playboy Interview with Dana White is such a good read, and I finally got to see Playmate Valerie Mason (Southern Charmer) after her appearance on The Girls Next Door. If that wasn't enough, the Page 3 girls are hot. It will be hard to top this one.

Test Your College-Bowl IQ

There's nothing like filling out a bracket for March Madness—too bad it's December and we're busy wrap­ping up another thrilling college-football season. But what if there were some way to measure your bowl-game apti­tude beyond simply picking winners and losers? There is: It's called a confidence pool, and it threatens to make the college-bowl season as exciting as the NCAA Basketball Tournament. There are 34 bowl games in the 2008-2009 postseason; before the action starts, on December 20, pick the winner of each game and assign your picks a confidence ranking from one (you have no idea who will win) to 34 (you think it's a lock), using each number only once. For every correct pick, you will receive a point value equal to the game's confidence ranking. The system rewards smart picks that go against conventional wisdom—last year West Virginia played the role of bracket buster by beating heav­ily favored Oklahoma. Even better, it's hard to recoup big losses with lucky guesses, since you'd be foolish to weight those heavily going in. If you were to pick every game cor­rectly, you'd have 595 points. (Note: You will not get 595 points.) Here's what your score says about you:

Is the next Red Smith or Frank Deford scrib­bling away at some two-bit school newspaper? Playboy.com aims to find out with its Search for the Best College Sportswriter contest. Hopefuls should hustle to playboy.com/sportswriter to enter; the winner gets two tickets to the NCAA Final Four and the chance to cover it for Playboy.com. Is there a deadline? Probably, but don't sweat it. Rule number one of sports-writing is that deadlines are to be ignored. [That was a joke. The deadline for entry is Janu­ary 1, and it is not to be ignored.—Ed.]

WE FEEL AS if we're going to cut off an ear every time we shave. So we reach for the stuff Van Gogh used to calm down: absinthe. But while Vincent drank the green fairy, Korres's absinthe shave cream ($22, amazon.com) goes on your face. It blends natural ab­sinthe oils with vitamins E and B5 to create a rich nonfoaming base for your daily scraping. If the mirror starts talking to you, discontinue use.

GETTING LOST IN the woods builds charac­ter. Too bad future generations will never experience its joys thanks to gadgets like Suunto's X1O ($550, suunto.com), a "wrist-top computer" that features an altimeter, a barometer, a com­pass and, incredibly enough, GPS navigation. Load it with waypoints from your PC and it will communi­cate distance, speed and ETA info as you go. Plus it tracks your actual movements, which you can upload to a computer. If you still crave charac­ter, pack some bourbon.

PAPER STOCK CERTIFICATES are one of the most splen­did artifacts of Gilded Age Wall Street. But their day is over. Indeed, yielding to digital inevitability, 2008 is the last year most companies will issue paper certificates. Which is all the more reason to celebrate them by buying a framed share of your favorite company. Oneshare.com offers actual honest-to-goodness single-share certificates from companies ranging from Playboy (natch) to Anheuser-Busch. Or maybe you would rather own a piece of Martha Stewart. Or Harley-Davidson. Per­sonally, we think those last two make a cute couple.

We recommend tuning in the Playboy Radio Morning Show (Sirius 198 weekdays from 10 a.m. to one p.m. EST) using the Pio­neer XMp3 player ($280, xmradio .com), which delivers 170 chan­nels to your pocket. What's more, you can record up to five stations at once for later listen­ing and use the onboard storage to hold your own MP3s.

THE CASIO EX-F1 ($1,000, casio.com) looks like a normal digital SLR camera. It is not. In fact, this unassuming chassis hides some staggeringly powerful electronic juju. An ultra-high-speed sensor and a supercharged image processor mean it shoots 60 stills a second and can produce video at 1,200 frames a second. That's fast enough to see balloons collapsing as they pop (or the wild contortions your girlfriend's face makes when she sneezes). Have fun. Don't get slapped.

WHEN YOU CHECK into a hotel, you expect certain things—a bath, a well-stocked minibar, a lack of tigers. What you do not expect is bunk beds, let alone king-size ones. If that de­tail of the Star Suite in San Diego's Ivy Hotel ($3,500 a night, ivyhotel.com) makes you think of giggle fits and footie pajamas, please note the room's "performance" pole and the glassed-in shower that becomes transparent at the touch of a button. All of which is to say: Grown-ups have the best sleepovers.

WANT TO KNOW about carrying things? Ask a mailman. The "Original" leather mes­senger bag ($795, jcrew.com) is a faithful reproduction of the ones postal workers carried from 1868 until the 1970s, down to the rich hand-oiled leather and hand­set copper rivets. Just keep an eye out for neighborhood dogs—and housewives.

IVIy girlfriend read this letter before I sent it to make sure you get both sides of the story. Simply, she wants to give me blow jobs, but I'm not interested. She cannot understand why any guy would decline oral sex. The best explanation I've been able to provide is that I re­gard blow jobs as a submissive act that's somewhat degrading to women. I'm not turned on by seeing the woman I care about with my penis in her mouth— Jenna Jameson maybe, but not her. She says if she wants to go down on me, that's different from feeling compelled to do it, so I should relax and enjoy myself. I say since I don't enjoy it there are other ac­tivities that would be a better use of her time. Because I will go down on her at any opportunity (and stay there until my tongue cramps), she claims I'm all give and no take, which she finds almost as annoying as all take and no give. This isn't tearing us apart, but we've agreed to follow the Advisor's advice: to be or not to be blown?—J.S., Dallas, Texas

fresno—Republican administrations always talk about states' rights and shrinking the role of the federal government. Then, of course, there is their record. The discrepancy between rhetoric and record was put in sharp contrast this summer when Luke Scarmazzo and Ricardo Montes were convicted on eight counts in a federal trial stemming from the 2006 bust of their Modesto medical-marijuana dispensary—a facility permitted under California state law. Scarmazzo and Montes maintain their California Healthcare Collective complied with state law, paid taxes and verified doctors' recommendations be­fore all marijuana sales. As Jessica Santos, a friend of Scarmazzo's wife who collected sig­natures on gopetition.com to protest the use of minimum-sentencing guidelines in the case, said, "Why do we even waste time, money and resources voting if, ultimately, it never matters in the end? Luke is going to serve time in prison until he's 55—for run­ning a business that was legal in our state."

Washington, D.C.—In mid-September the FBI released its annual Uniform Crime Report, revealing that arrests for mari­juana offenses hit a record high in 2007 at 872,721. Amazingly, nearly 90 per­cent of those arrested—775,138—were charged with possession only. In addition, almost three quarters of those arrested were under the age of 30. "These num­bers belie the myth that police do not tar­get and arrest minor cannabis offenders," said NORML executive director Allen St. Pierre. "This effort is a tremendous waste of criminal-justice resources that diverts law enforcement personnel away from focusing on serious and violent crime, in­cluding the war on terrorism." The num­ber of marijuana-related arrests in 2007 dwarfed the number of all violent-crime arrests combined in the same year.

urs was the comics generation. In the late 1940s, I before the advent of mass television, comics reading was what we did on Saturday afternoons if the mov­ies were out of the question. We'd sprawl on the floor, feet in the air, reading and rereading our ample stash. Friends would bring other comics of greater or lesser value, and intricate negotiations would take place.

THE PLAYBOY BAR: SCOTCH

Humphrey Bogart's last words
ere at playboy we regularly host master distillers who come from Scotland to tell us how to drink single malt. Add water—not that much! Swirl it—don't spill! We recall the time we tossed an ice cube into a dram. The Scotsman looked . at us as if we'd violated his daughter. The way we see it, drinking shouldn't involve rules (the law aside). Drink your liquor however the hell you want, and if you finish a bottle you just opened, so be it. That said, scotch is a substance that deserves deep respect. Centuries of history are in every drop, and flavors vary more than with any other distillate. What is the stuff? In a sentence: It's beer made from malted barley that's distilled and then aged in oak casks. A single malt comes from a single distillery. A blend marries lots of single malts with grain whiskey. Pour yourself one as we take a closer look.
