“I was taken aback by Harvey's impact but was left encouraged by the strength of my friends, family and neighbors,” says the southeast Texas native and photographer of Texas After the Storm. He adds, "What good is the world beyond your gate if you can’t see the one in your own backyard?”

I couldn’t wait to see the November/December issue. I thought for sure the cover would be Ines Rau (Enchanté, Mademoiselle Rau), but I was heartened to see Hugh Hefner instead. I got teary-eyed reading the tribute to him. He was a trailblazer, and to break barriers with the first transgender Playmate in the same issue says even more.

Last fall, Burton Morris became the latest in a long line of pop artists—including Andy Warhol and Keith Haring—to put his own spin on our Rabbit Head. The resulting exhibit, titled Painting Playboy: Burton Morris and held at Taglialatella Galleries in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, featured no fewer than 64 unique versions of our ubiquitous logo.

Eve Barlow
Swedish pop singer-songwriter Tove Lo is incapable of selfcensorship; we’ve seen this since she first emerged, in 2013, with the addictive single “Habits (Stay High).” She has spent the past four years conquering everlarger stages, often with only glitter covering her nipples, kitting out her house-infused synth pop with unfiltered lyrics about sex, drugs and hard-won self-discovery.

What really goes on inside a cult? Over the past couple of years our collective fascination with that question has risen to a fever pitch. The literary world obsessed over Emma Cline’s The Girls and Stephanie Oakes’s The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly, both of which reimagine collective madness as coming-of-age tales.

“People don’t want to be in a cult; they want to be in a movement,” says Aaron Paul, star of the Hulu original series The Path. Paul plays Eddie Lane, a charismatic everyman who just may be extraordinary. The foundational story of Meyerism, the fictional faith at the center of the series, can sound outlandish or inspiring, depending on your propensity for religious belief:

“Art is like an open window to new ideas,” says Kii Arens, whose Technicolor canvas Play Joy is reproduced here. “Words can get lost in the shuffle of everything that’s being broadcast and posted, but art doesn’t go away.” Art’s power to foster passionate dialogue is what we had in mind when we conceived Creatives for Climate, a campaign to raise money for environmental causes by auctioning off original work by our favorite artists.

Q: I may be the only man ever to admit this to the Playboy Advisor, but I'm not a football fan. The problem is I'm dating a Cheesehead. Football is her life, from playing in a fantasy league to Super Bowl partying. I've attended games with her but still feel alienated from the culture—and from her when she talks to other men about football.

JONATHAN TASINI
Every midterm election is a referendum on the party holding the White House, but this year’s cycle will be unusual for one reason: Civil wars are tearing at both parties, especially the one currently controlling all three branches. With President Donald Trump polling at historically low numbers, you’d think Democrats would have a golden opportunity to seize the Senate, where Republicans have a 52-48 majority, and an outside shot at recapturing the House, where the GOP enjoys a 241-194 edge.

“You play like a girl.” I heard this time and again as a kid on Gallup, New Mexico’s only golf course, where I was the only girl golfer. Men found it cute that I played from what were then called the “men’s tees,” but I practiced every day to move from cute to great.

Taped to the refrigerator in the house Jeff Flake grew up in was a three-by-five-inch card smeared with baking residue.

Look for the good.” “I wish everyone lived by that,” the Arizona senator says, smiling, “but the best I can do is to try and live it myself.”

Nearly 40 years ago PLAYBOY’S then editorial director Arthur Kretchmer shared a cab from the airport with a stranger. An international consultant, the woman proved an intriguing chat. When Kretchmer mentioned he worked for PLAYBOY, the company whose logo, he boasted, was the second most famous on Earth—behind only Coca-Cola—she smiled and proceeded to disagree.
