Summer is a time to unwind and reflect, but these days you take your eye off the ball at your peril. That's why we present Future Tense, a big rangy beach read designed to keep you ahead of the things the world will be throwing at us all too soon. It features everyone from Margaret Atwood on our environmental gauntlet to Seth Mac-Farlane musing on our species's ability to find innovative ways to screw everything up. Edwidge Danticat offers perspective on the ramifications of mankind's new global interconnectedness, and photographer Steve Shaw shoots Olivia Munn showing off her greatest asset in the age of digital convergence: her unvarnished self. Plus, we have entries from T. Boone Pickens, Reza Asian and Chip Rowe, the Playboy Advi­sor. Less relaxing (but still perfect for the beach) is Richard Stratton's Smuggler's Blues, the true-life tale of what happened when he brought seven and a half tons of Lebanese hash into New York Harbor with

Your roundup of challengers to the throne of best Caucasian rapper ("Will the Next Eminem Please Stand Up?" After Hours, April) is a little disappointing. As a fan of the Metermaids and Aesop Rock, I can't see either of them being too happy about comparisons to Eminem. If the point is to introduce America to up-and-coming white rappers, you should have gone with Mac Lethal and the Crest. Tripp Rostad Madison, Wisconsin

In Liars, Cheats & Thieves (April) you suggest mortgage brokers are partly responsible for the financial crisis. I'm in the business and can assure you no broker has ever approved a loan. In an effort to outcompete one another, the banks started this mess by offering prod­ucts that required lower and lower credit scores. Now that their customers are fore­closing, the banks are deflecting blame. It's just sour grapes. And the borrowers who signed for these loans and got in over their heads should have known better.

Playing the race card or any other card isn't going to change the fact that former San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds used steroids (The Per­secution of Barry Bonds, April). Any­one who would defend him, even if only to vilify the BALCO prosecutors, shouldn't call himself a baseball fan. There may be a lot of skeletons in the closet of Jeff Novitzky, who pursued Bonds and other players while work­ing as an investigator for the IRS, but no kids are looking up to Novitzky as any kind of hero. Regardless of their skin color, players like Bonds are ruin­ing professional baseball for the next generation of fans.

It's called irony—the difference between what is implied and what really is. In The Ugly Truth, Bree Turner (who in truth is not ugly) plays best friend to Katherine Heigl (ditto). Bree's character, Joy, is anything but joyful. "She hasn't had sex in a cou­ple of years," Bree ex­plains, "and she's really jonesing for it. There's a scene where Katherine and I meet Eric Winter in a coffee shop. Eric is a gorgeous dude. He buys us coffee, and I dry hump the air for 20 seconds." Bree's next project is also a come­dy, less romantic than chop-socky: "It's like Airplane! with ninjas."

photography as Freud meets Fellini. Here's how we describe it: dreamscapes that are terrifi­cally morbid yet utterly glamor­ous, surreal, narrative and, dare we say, sexy? (His photos are often compared to the films of David Lynch.) "My work is not just about a dream but a dream of reality," Aldridge says. "It's all amplified, but it is essentially from reality and essentially con­temporary." And it's fun to look at Have some time to kill? Dream away at milesaldridge.com.

Porkslap Pale Ale is a can full of contradic­tion. It's the only canned beer you'll find on the menu at some of Manhattan's top gastronomic shrines such as Market Table. But its label and taste lack any pretension. It's a traditional pale ale with the slightest hint of ginger, a perfect summer thirst quencher. Check your local three-star joint.

According to new research, lobsters, crabs and shrimp-thought to be so primitive and vapid they were immune to pain—do in fact suffer when dropped into boiling water. Scientists electroshocked hermit crabs and, in another study, introduced prawns to acetic acid. Both experi­ments ended badly for the shellfish. Point? Tell this to the guy next to you at a clambake; more tail meat for you.

Second: new decks inspired by Spike Jonze's film Where the Wild Things Are (out this fall) from Girl Skateboards, a company Jonze partly owns. Jonze, a veteran of the BMX scene, has street cred. Hirst is just a cool bastard, and these boards cost hundreds of thousands less than any of his artwork. We'll take either to the half-pipe, but don't expect us to grind on dope art. That's just how we roll.

A new film trend you should be aware of: OJSC—"outrageous Japanese splatter cin­ema" (our moniker for the genre). Last year Yoshihiro Nishimura released Tokyo Core Police, a masterpiece of gorgeous geishas, geysers of blood and absurdist social com­mentary. Word from our contacts in Tokyo: A bevy of Japanese directors are now working on their own splatter flicks, with images that will make Quentin Tarantino queasy. We'll be in the front row.

Bullets spray all over the place in Public En­emies, director Michael Mann's 1930s-era crime saga starring Johnny Depp as legend­ary bank robber John Dillinger. The gangland epic is based on Bryan Burrough's nonfiction book and features Marion Cotillard as Dil-linger's girlfriend, Channing Tatum as Pretty Boy Floyd, Billy Crudup as G-man J. Edgar Hoover and Christian Bale as crime-busting agent Melvin Purvis. "Purvis was a fascinat­ing, elegant man nicknamed the Clark Gable of the Bureau and listed in the top 10 most popular figures of his time, along with Presi­dent Roosevelt," says Bale. "I have a library of books on Purvis on my desk, but Michael Mann did 10 times that research." Don't ex­pect to see shoot-'em-up fireworks between Bale and Depp, however. "I'm pursuing Dil­linger, so Johnny and I don't breathe the same air," says Bale. "In one of the two scenes we had together, we only saw each other from a couple of hundred feet away at

Ghostbusters: The Game

Twenty five years ago goofballs tore around Manhat­tan chasing ghosts to create one of cinema's most enduring comedies. Today you can do it yourself in a game (for 360, PC, PS3 and Wii) that straps you into a new recruit's proton pack and tells you not to cross the streams. Timed to coincide with the release of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II on Blu-ray, it's the biggest expansion of the story and its world since 1989; plus Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Dan Ayk-royd came back to do voices. (Aykroyd and Ramis also consulted on the story.) Is any other comedy material ripe for the video-game treatment? "Maybe an Irwin Mainway game where you give a kid a Bag-o-Glass and then have to run from the lawyers and cops," says Aykroyd, harking back to his SNL days. "Or Fred Garvin. Male Prostitute. That would make a great game." See our full interviews with Aykroyd and Ramis at playboy.com/games.

The 1980s metal revival is officially in full ef­fect, and L.A.'s Steel Panther is the ultimate Lycra-clad shred fest. The band's star-studded shows are either a cheeky homage to hair met­al or a loving send-up. Or both. We caught up with the Aqua Net abusers—singer Michael Starr, guitarist Satchel, bassist Lexxi Foxxx and drummer Stix Zadinia—between gigs. PLAYBOY: Does having a major record deal make it easier to get girls now? FOXXX: They want to fuck us a lot more. As a result, I'm taking more trips to the clinic. PLAYBOY: What's the worst STD? SATCHEL: I think the worst STD is probably the Ford Explorer.

We're not sure why watchmakers in­clude hands anymore; in the age of the cell phone no one uses these things to tell time. Today watches are used to make a statement about your style and financial sta­tus. Ritmo Mundo's Entourage (ritmomundo.com) succeeds on the first front, but while it looks like a million bucks, it will set you I back only $750. Ritmo supplies | the watches for HBO's show of the same name (note the star, a subtle nod to the Entourage logo).

Unless you're talking about ForkedUP ($300, thout.ca), a silverware holder that uses magnets and holes to make it look as if you have a deranged knife thrower for a house­keeper. It's part of Thoufs clever UtiliTile product line, which offers space-saving, high-design ways to store your most everyday items, from keys to coats.

Japan is famous for its high-end cameras, but it has made some clinkers. Like the Diana, shown here, which came out in the 1960s, sold for about a dollar, had a plastic lens and leaked light something awful. It also produced such strange, iconic results that it has become a collector's item for today's fashion and art photographers. If you're ready to go lo-fi, you can get an exact reproduction (including all the "imperfections" of the originals) for just $95 from the folks at lomography.com.

a saying that when the United sneezes, the world catches cold. Our subprime mortgages ; our banks stop lending and the world economy contracts, leading to global recession. Not surprisingly, the world's only superpower has a lot to account for, and like the good book says, unto whom much is given, much is expected. In the past, these expectations have led to taking in refugees, being among the first on disaster scenes and fighting the good fights for global lib­erties and human rights; however, it has also meant occupations and unjustifiable wars. As the global economic crisis shows, the America of this new era desperately needs change. Not because our young, urbane, well-traveled, metrosexual and, yes, multi­cultural president says so but because the times demand it. We are no longer that much different from the rest of the world but equal partners in it, sharing at light­ning speed its economic sorrows and viral afflictions.

Chip Rowe
II this ridiculous talk of lifelike fuck dolls, human-robot love affairs and long-distance digital dildos isn't about m 4 the future of sex, as it's made out to be. It's about the centuries-old effort to improve male masturbation, an ultimately disappointing pursuit because anything short of contact with the warm flesh of another will always be less than satisfying. While a walking, talking Stepford wife may someday receive a five-star rating on Amazon.com, the future of sex has nothing to do with technology. The reason lies within the dichotomy of need versus desire. Males need to climax; it's programmed into us to propagate the species. But no fembot will ever quiet our consuming desire, that part of our being that powers sonnets and separates us from apes. More important, no sex toy will ever need or desire you. To understand the difference, consider the poor sap who in the late 1960s submitted himself to a psychiatrist who placed an electric probe deep into the man's brain to "cure" his homo­sexuality. The man could give himself a shock of erotic plea­sure with the push of a button, which he did compulsively, pressing 1,500 times over three hours. Yet he never seemed

Reza Aslan
With apologies to Thomas Friedman, the world is not flat. It is our minds that have flattened. Glo­balization has not only altered the way we view the world. It has changed the way we view ourselves. Global­ization has profoundly affected the way we identify as part of a social collective. It has changed the way we conceive of our public spaces, how we interact with like-minded indi­viduals, how we determine our religious and political lead­ers, even how we think about categories like religion and politics. Indeed, globalization has transformed everything about how we think of ourselves both as individuals and as members of a larger society because our sense of who we are is no longer dominated by national concerns. And since the self is composed of multiple markers of identity— nationality, class, gender, religion, ethnicity and so on—if one of those (say, nationality) starts to give way, it is only natural that another (religion, ethnicity) would come to fill the vacuum. Which is why despite all the talk about the death of God, the truth is religion is becoming a stronger, more global force every day. A century ago, one half of the world's population identified itself as Catholic, Protestant, Muslim or Hindu. Today that number is nearly two thirds. Perhaps it is too early to talk of postnationalism, and it is likely premature to speak of the end of the nation-state as we know it (though this is already happening through­out the European Union). But there is no doubt we are approaching an era in which more and more people will cease defining themselves primarily in nationalistic terms and will instead fall back on more primal markers of iden­tity, like tribe, kin, clan, ethnicity and, above all, religion.

hen playboy asked me to contribute a few thoughts about the future, I felt both honored and thrilled. To me playboy represents so much more than Playmates, jazz festivals and quality footwear that North Providence Italian guys proudly wear to strip clubs, playboy provides a safe haven for openness, freedom of thought and the kind of divergent, creative thinking essential to human progress. Through the years, and the pages of playboy, I have been exposed to compelling literature from Gore Vidal, Kurt Vonnegut and John Updike; brilliant, insightful comedy from Woody Allen and Steve Martin; and thoughtful, informed observations from Stephen Hawking and the quintessential rationalist Carl Sagan. I also got to see Tanya Roberts's ass. It was in some pilfered issue I saw as a kid, in an article trum­peting the release of the movie The Beastmaster. Poised to springboard from her enviable perch as the fourth or fifth Charlie's Angel, Tanya was beautifully photographed, totally

Michael Eric Dyson
Since Barack Obama took residence in the White House, a lot of folks think it's a fait accompli that the United States has become, with the election of our first black president, a postracial society. Stop the presses. It just ain't so. Instead of be­ing forward-looking the term recalls the wish for Negro removal, the impetus behind the 19th century movement to send blacks back to Africa and the so-called urban renewal of the 20th centu­ry. The fantasy that blackness can some­how be done with, overcome, gotten rid of, quenched, quarantined, cordoned off or finally resolved is what really lies behind the ungainly word postracial. It really means postblack. But black folks can't—and shouldn't—have to stop be­ing black to be seen as fully human and completely American. Let's compare gender and race to get at the problem. Enlightened women and their male al­lies don't want this to be a postfemale society. We want this to be a postmisogy-nist society, a postsexist society, perhaps even a postpatriarchal society. We don't want women to stop being women. We want men and women to overcome negative, ill-informed beliefs and sexist behaviors that trump the recognition of their complex humanity and full equali­ty. So why do black folks have to stop be­ing black to be accepted as full-fledged members of society? We're already as American as we need to be. Blackness and Americanness are not mutually ex­clusive. What we should strive for is a postracist society. Obama's presidency will hardly put a dent in the forces that pulverize black life: high infant mor­tality and unemployment, poor health care, atrocious educational inequality, racial profiling. That's not to suggest that his presidency bears little symbolic value; that the leader of the free world is a black man carries huge meaning. It shows we have matured as a country. It proves we can look beyond color to see character and credentials. But it doesn't mean that we have arrived in the ra­cial promised land or that we're done with blackness. It means there's a new blackness in town, for sure, but not the absence of blackness. And it means we have the opportunity to slay the dragons of racism and inequality that stalk the national landscape, even as we welcome the appearance of new understanding and progress in the Age of Obama.

his is a shocking truth, but your girlfriend may have a bigger dick than you do. In 1008 anatomist Or. Helen O'Connell dis­sected the genitalia of 10 female cadavers in an attempt to redraw textbooks she had first seen In medical school that portray the organ as a miniature penis, a dot or, worst of all, nonexistent. O'Connell's work confirmed the 17th century observations of Regnier de Graaf, who sketched the clitoris as a wishbone, with a visible tip and legs, or crura. reaching into the body on either side of the vagina. □'Conned found these crura to each extend up to 3.S inches. "The vaginal wall is, in fact, the clitoris," she has said. "If you lift the skin off the vagina on the side walls, you get the bulbs of the clitoris— triangular, crescental masses of erectile tissue" that rest between the crura and the urethra. The nerves and tissue of the distal, or front, part of the vagina and the clit are so intertwined, as are the vagina and the urethra Ithe floor of one being the ceiling of the other), O'Connetl suggests the three sisters be renamed "the clitoral complex."

arc Ecko Is grinning as he checks out the latest results of his playboy photo session. "I should quit my day job," he says, laughing. Though he started out doing graffiti, the guy knows his legit artists, too. "This shoot Is an homage to Patrick Nagel." he says, referring to the playboy illustrator who went on to create the iconic cover for Duran Duran's Rio. "He struck a balance between artistic and illustrative com­position, as well as balancing the right amount of flesh with the right amount of styling." In this case Ecko brought the style and we brought the flesh, In the shapely form of Miss March 2006 Monica Leigh, Miss May 2007 Shan­non James and Cyber Girl Chemise Yvette. Because Ecko's an insatiable artist and entrepreneur who has made his mark In everything from fash-Ion (see his lines at shopecko.com) to magazines, animal rights, video games, fragrance and viral video (you can watch him tag Air Force One at stlllfree.com), we weren't surprised to find he'd had a fair amount of experi­ence with photography. "I got a lot of my creative spirit from my dad, who was a regular guy with some real pho­tographic chops. We'd turn the laun­dry room into a makeshift darkroom every weekend." But was the playboy shoot, you know, fun? "Are you kid­ding?" he says. "I got that giddy-llttle-boy laugh as soon as I found out I would get to do this."

It's good to be PMOY 1997 Victoria Silvstedt. In My Perfect Life you will see how the international sen­sation jets from photo shoots to celebrity parties to runways (the modeling kind as well) and on to Holly­wood. Despite all the high flying, she always remains grounded—she's just a Swedish girl next door. The E! network's new show proves that, yes, it is possible to balance the glamorous life with real life.

Thirty years ago this month we introduced you to Dorothy Strattcn. Dorothy was whisked to Los Angeles from Canada during our 25th anni­versary Great Playmate Hunt. She didn't win that title, but she did become Miss August 1979 and quickly won over readers' hearts, leading to her being crowned Playmate of the Year 1980. A few months after her PMOY issue her husband took her life. She has since been culogi/ed in song, film and literature, but we like to remember Dorothy as full of life, pre­cious and gorgeous._____

While 1 appreciated Lawrence Lessig's column on prohibition ("Our New Prohibition," April), I found myself wondering why Lessig only briefly mentioned the prohibi­tion against marijuana, which is a much more worrying aspect of our nation's laws. Hundreds of thousands of people remain in jail for mari­juana possession while pharmaceuti­cal companies line their pockets with profits from drugs that make people go insane, not to mention highly addictive drugs like OxyContin that people overdose on every day. Still we hear stories on Fox News about the link between severe vomiting syndrome and pot use that mention only two instances of severe vomit­ing. I'm no conspiracy theorist, but this is one aspect of our government (and media) we have to stop ignor­ing, playing down and mocking, or we will become indifferent servants to the pharmacological tyranny Aldous Huxley predicted 50 years ago. Let's talk about weed, baby.

After reading the March issue I could not let Joe Domanick's politically biased open-border diatribe ("Start Making Sense") go unanswered. Apparently Domanick wants to make the keeping out and removal of illegal aliens a racial issue by talking only about how angered whites in Arizona are. Well, how about the jobs blacks, Native Americans and, for that matter, legal immigrants are losing to illegals? You don't think they might be angry too? He is also appar­ently not concerned about the welfare of illegal aliens themselves, who are often used and abused and have no recourse. Tom Hawks worth Roseburg, Oregon

Swede ANGELICA JANSSON tells us she's in Baby 0. a musical starring Billy Burke, Theresa Russell and Robert Goulaaaaay. She also claims roles in a video for a di­minutive Kiss cover band and an aborted Eddie Griffin reality series. Our researchers cannot confirm any of this. It could be just a pack of lies.
