Liza Kei Miss August 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

Liza Kei August 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

Liza Kei August 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

If Liza Kei’s otherworldly blue-eyed gaze and delicately wrought bone structure look familiar, it’s probably because she graced our March 2013 cover. “When I was first asked, I said, ‘Are you calling the right number?’?” she recalls, laughing. “So I called my mom and told her, ‘Listen, this is the deal.’ Typical Russian mom, her response was ‘What if you can’t marry a prince because you were in Playboy?’ I was like, ‘I can live with that.’ After thinking about it, I decided I want my grandchildren to say Grandma was a Playboy cover girl.”

The former ballet dancer and aspiring architect was discovered at a recital in her hometown of Rostov-on-Don when she was 17; she’s been modeling ever since. “The Russian ballerina is a classic cliché,” she says with a grin. “Second on the list after model!” At first Liza wasn’t sure she’d succeed. “Models always used to be super-tall divas. I’m more of a girl next door.”

Liza Kei August 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

Ask Liza to describe herself in three words and she’ll say, “Funny, sexy, sarcastic.” So what makes her feel sexy? “Clean hair, beautiful new lingerie and of course those eyes watching me dance and jump around wearing it.” Just as long as “those eyes” don’t belong to a man with petite feet. “It’s weird, but big feet are important,” she says. “Not necessarily huge, but I need guy feet.” Other Liza essentials: Russian food, Adidas pants and a good book for plane rides (she has a thing for French philosophers).

The New York City–based model had a revelation in California a few years ago. “I went on a date to Venice Beach. I realized I’m this little girl from Russia and I’ve made it all the way to the other side of the world. It was like, Oh my God.” While she loves to travel, our August Playmate appreciates a relatively pared-down existence. “It’s the simple things in life,” she says. “I love to cuddle. Who doesn’t? There should be an app just for cuddles—cuddles and puppies.”

It’s easy to think of Liza Kei, a former Playboy cover girl (she graced the March 2013 issue), as a model’s model. She is, after all, lithe with rare bone structure and Russian and has been modeling professionally since the age of 17, when the ballet dancer and aspiring architect discovered at a recital in her hometown of Rostov-on-Don. “The Russian ballerina is a classic cliché,” she laughs. “Second on the list after model!” But just because it might very well be in her DNA, it doesn’t mean she always counted on the kind of success she’s experienced. “Models always used to be super-tall divas. I’m more of a girl next door.”

Now based in New York City, traveling the world satisfies eai’s penchant for adventure, though when it comes down to it, she really enjoys quieter pursuits, like reading French philosphy. “It’s the simple things in life,” she smiles. “I love to cuddle. Who doesn’t? There should be an app just for cuddles–cuddles and puppies.” She’s also got a weakness for dessert, which she can’t live a restaurant without ordering. “It can be the most exquisite meal, but I need the chocolate cake at the end. Just leave me the dessert cart.” Ask her to describe herself in three words and Kei sums herself up succintly: “FUnny, sexy, sarcastic.”

Molly Stewart July 2017 Cybergirl of the Month

Molly Stewart Playboy Cyber Girl of the Month for July 2017

Molly Stewart Playboy Cyber Girl of the Month for July 2017

Molly Stewart is an American glamour model, adult model, webcam model, and porn star. She was Playboy Cyber Girl of the Month for July 2017 and Penthouse Pet of the Month for September 2017.

Hometown: Holland, Michigan

You rode your motorcycle from Michigan to Los Angeles when you moved out here to California? Yeah. Back then, I had a Honda Shadow 650. It was my first cruiser. But now I’ve graduated to something faster. I ride a Triumph Daytona 675R. I grew up in a family of bikers. I’m very tall, so I can ride bikes most women can’t.

Super tall! It’s hot. I’m the shortest member of the family. My brother is 6’11”.

Damn. Were you able to find a shitty-motel bed that fit you on your cross-country motorcycle trip? We were broke, so we couldn’t afford one every night. One night, we pulled into Nebraska and every motel was booked. The only place we thought it was safe to sleep was a graveyard.

Naturally. We all got into our sleeping bags — I was next to my friend. We started making out. I don’t know why the setting was so arousing, but it worked. We weren’t fucking on a grave or anything, just on the grass that was nearby.

What’s the weirdest job you ever had? I worked at a deli slicing meat and butchering chickens. I had to cut off their heads, pull out their giblets, all that stuff.

Did you have prior chicken-chopping experience? No, they kind of just left me to figure it out and handed me some scissors.

Speaking of raw chicken, what’s your ultimate fantasy? I love the idea of being in bed with someone while another man watches, then telling him if and when he can join in. I love the thought of arousing someone, but they don’t get to act on their urges unless I allow it. Maybe it’s a control thing, or maybe I’m just an attention whore. Who knows?

What’s one thing you won’t do in bed? Rim jobs! A guy tried it on me once. We were in doggie-style, then he pulled out and started massaging my butt. That felt great, but then he starts to slobber all over me. It felt like what I imagine if a dog was going to town on me. It was not a turn-on at all. I can’t even think about rim jobs. He ruined them.

Bummer. (Get it?)

 

Playboy Cyber Girl of the Month for July 2017

Meet Molly Stewart, a beautiful redhead with legs for days and a smile that will make you weak in the knees. “I love Marvel comics, riding motorcycles and I enjoy older music with a good beat,” says the six foot tall model. “I enjoy hiking and being outdoors—that’s one of the great things about Washington. One of my favorite outdoor activities is riding on my motorcycle. I’m really into sports bikes and cars.” Having moved around the United States over ten times in the last five years, the fit gearhead has never felt more at home than she does in Seattle and Seattle loves her right back. “I like being in the Pacific Northwest in the beautiful city of Seattle. It might rain a little too much, but it’s green as hell,” says the sexy beauty as she crosses her long legs. “I’m honest as hell, although, maybe that can come off badly at times. I’m not afraid to speak my mind and stick by my ideals.” Lucky for us, her ideals include posing for Playboy Plus and now that she’s here, she’s going to make sure every single one of her fans really gets to know just who Molly Stewart is. “I’ve led a very interesting sex life, but I’m always into new experiences. I fantasize about fulfilling someone else’s fantasies,” she says with a wink. “My biggest turn-on is the feeling of fingers slowly sliding down my neck and my back. Bare skin and bare skin is one of my biggest turn-ons. Oh my god! It makes me feel so sexy!” Explore Molly Stewart’s bare skin and more, right here on Playboy Plus.

Dana Taylor Miss July 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

July 2017 Playboy Playmate Dana Taylor

Beauty at once formidable and approachable: Few women are in possession of such incongruous appeal, and Dana Taylor is most definitely one of them. An all-American beauty with a wide smile, she harks back to the heyday of supermodels—those leggy bombshells who exuded sensuality and strength all at once. Distracting physicality aside, the Chicago native is as warm and good-natured as her grin suggests. She’s also a woman who doesn’t mess with hesitation. “I moved to New York right away. I graduated from high school early, and the next day I jumped on an airplane,” she says. “I think it was the day I turned 18. I’d scouted it, and mentally I was like, ‘I’m going there. Nobody is stopping me.’

July 2017 Playboy Playmate Dana Taylor

Maybe her resolve stems from an athletic childhood. Dana, who loves wakeboarding and basketball, was a competitive ice skater for 11 years. “My mom got me a pair of skates at a garage sale, and I jumped on the ice and just did it. It’s been a part of my life for my whole life.”

The former runway model moves quickly, so it goes without saying she requires a high-octane man. “I’m a doer,” she says. “I’m a wild girl, a free spirit. I’m outgoing, so when I meet a guy, he has to be able to keep up with me. If we can connect and he can go along with me, that’s great.”

She’ll also go after you, if you’re what she wants. “I used to think Whole Foods was the best place to scout guys,” she admits, laughing. “My roommate and I would stand in the chip aisle and ask guys, ‘What’s the difference between blue corn chips and regular chips?’ to strike up a conversation.” From aisle to isle, Dana gives the impression that she’s going to do what she wants, despite what anyone else thinks. “When I have a plan in place, I never back down.”

Dana was born in Chicago, Illinois but is currently residingin New York City, NY with other fashion models hoping to make it in Playboy.

Birthplace: Rochester New York USA
Height: 5′ 7″ Weight: 130 lbs
Measurements: 34C-26-38

Bio:
“Hi, my name is Jillisa and I’m originally from Rochester, New York,” says model Jillisa Lynn, a curvy blonde with big, blue eyes. “My measurements are 34, 26 and 38. I got them hips!” Hips, full lips and very flexible, Jillisa is a vivacious former gymnast who loves raspberry lemonade, Chapstick and her multicultural family. “My mother is Puerto Rican and my father is French and Italian, so I got a little bit of the United Nations in me. I’m a family person and have gone through a lot to get where I am at in life. I believe that’s why I’m such a people person, and such an uplifting light when it’s raining, as some would say,” she explains. “I’ve had a lot of life experiences that have helped shape me into the woman I am now.”

Several years ago, Jillisa took a pleasure trip to Los Angeles that was filled with fun in the sun, shopping and a naughty good time at the Playboy Mansion. “I originally found Playboy when I was 19 years old and was visiting LA for the first time and ended up being invited to dinner to the Mansion. I got to eat dinner and watch a movie with Hugh Hefner himself and his girlfriends, Bridget Marquardt, Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson, I even got to do flips on the trampoline,” giggles the busty beauty. “I went straight to the airport with my souvenir Playboy water bottle thinking to myself, ‘If this happened during my first three days, I could conquer the city if I moved here.’ Here I am now, being featured on Playboy, accomplishing one of my biggest goals. I believe our body is art and I’m honored to share mine through the eyes of the legendary Playboy.” Observe Jillisa Lynn’s curvy artwork and more, right here on Playboy Plus.

Elsie Hewitt is used to causing a little confusion. A rare amalgam of warmth, world-tested savvy and undeniable sex appeal, our June Playmate gets that people have a hard time accepting what they don’t understand, especially when it comes to those who refuse to be lumped into society’s rigid categories. The first thing you notice may be her body—curves that seemingly defy the laws of physics, or at least average genetics—but like any beautiful woman, Elsie is so much more than her corporeality.

Born and raised in London until the age of 10, when she moved to her current home of Los Angeles, Elsie is self-possessed and precocious, seemingly older than her 21 years. She carries herself with the air of a young woman who has lived, perhaps because she has. “I’ve been working since I was 15, and I’m totally independent,” she explains. Then again, this old soul is not without an element of wide-eyed innocence. “Recently, I’ve been realizing not everyone has the same heart I do. There’s a lot that people don’t know about me,” she admits. “I’m very sensitive, even though many people just see me as another sexy girl on Instagram.”

Head on out the highway with June Playmate 2017 Elsie Hewitt, even if she has to hoof it.

Needless to say, Elsie’s Insta feed doesn’t tell the whole story. When she isn’t modeling, she’s absorbed in acting classes (she cites Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton and Faye Dunaway as three of her favorite actors), and she’s the nurturer among her friends. “I always have advice to give,” she says. “I’m like a mama.” As for men, she doesn’t have a type, but one physical trait stands out. “Teeth are important,” she says. And when it comes to her own appearance, she’s legitimately low-maintenance. “I don’t care about looking perfect,” she says. “I don’t wear makeup. I just got my first haircut in six years. My hair was down to my butt. I chopped off 12, 13 inches, and it’s still long.”

Don’t think Elsie isn’t acutely aware of what she’s doing when it comes to what she shows and doesn’t show of herself—or the fact that a “sexy image” is often taken at face value. “Nude photography is about vulnerability, the beauty of the picture,” she says. “It’s not about sexualizing or objectifying myself. But everybody’s going to have their own opinion. You can’t please everyone. You just have to live your life and do what you want.”

Our latest newcomer is a shout out to all of our loyal members who love their ladies on the blonde side. Meet Ria Rose, a lovely beauty from Sin City with golden-blonde curls and pale green eyes. “I’ve wanted to be a Playboy model ever since I first watched Girls Next Door. I love everything Playboy stands for,” says the all-natural Amateur model. “I’ve looked up to many Playmates over the years and have always wanted to be and feel as beautiful and empowered as they do.” Feeling gorgeous in the kitchen with photographer Jennifer Vaughn, Ria happily demonstrated her sexy baking skills—wearing a white, lace bodysuit instead of an apron, of course. “All my life, I’ve loved being naked and I feel the most comfortable when I am,” admits Ria, who’s been craving excitement in her life lately. “I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s actual pretty boring given that I’m not 21 yet, but other than that, I like it.” As the oven timer rings, the sexy model takes her hot biscuits out of the oven and begins to butter them. “I started modeling 2 weeks after I turned 18,” she says. “My first shoot was actually a submission shoot for Playboy Plus.” Help Ria Rose butter her biscuits, only on Playboy Plus.

Ria Rose is one of those girls you can’t help but notice. She’s petite at five feet, four inches, with platinum blonde hair and pale green eyes, but her cheery personality is big enough to fill a room. “I’m an only child, so I used to be a bit introverted,” says Ria. “Most of the time, though, I’m very loud and outspoken. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, where there’s always something crazy going on. My dad is a musician, so I grew up loving music.” A longtime fan of Playboy and The Girls Next Door, Ria always wanted to pose for Playboy Plus, so as soon as she turned eighteen, she started auditioning, and didn’t stop until she got a call back. “I love everything Playboy stands for,” gushes Ria. “I love being naked and feel most comfortable when I am!” When she’s not in front of the camera, Ria loves watching movies—her favorites are usually comedies—and someday, she’d love to have a guy by her side to share the popcorn and the laughs. “I love having someone to share my days with,” she explains. “Someone you know is always going to be there if you have a bad day—or an amazing day!” If you want to hang with a girl like Ria, take a page out of her book—hard work and determination pay off.

Nina Daniele Miss April 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

Nina Daniele Miss April 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

Nina Daniele Miss April 2017 Playboy Playmate of the Month

The creative and vivacious April Playmate Nina Daniele has us wishing for summer pool days

Nina Daniele is comfortable with being uncomfortable. “I find some satisfaction in it,” Miss April says. The only child of artist parents, she’s all buoyant energy and unapologetic candor. She’s also an introspective extrovert with an infectiously frequent giggle. In between modeling jobs, Nina has satisfied herself with quieter pursuits, studying photography (she uses her mom’s old Pentax K1000 to snap photos on black-and-white film) and majoring in creative writing in college. “For years, writing was all I did, and I wasn’t sure if I was living to write or writing to live. I didn’t know if it was a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy and I was doing things just so I could write about them.”

Meet April Playmate Nina Daniele
Now the native New Yorker is more interested in relishing the moment and teasing herself with what might come next. “I have a habit of finding something new every week,” she says. “I wanted to start a tie-dyed shirt business because my boyfriend gave me a tie-dyeing kit and I was like, ‘I can make a million of these!’ I wanted to weld jewelry. I wanted to be a day trader, and then I wanted to go back to school and become a psychologist. Maybe in my next life I’ll be a stockbroker.”

There is one venture Nina has stuck with: “Pole dancing was something I had always wanted to do but didn’t know how to go about it. There’s such a stigma to it.” Now nearly two years into weekly classes, she has a pole installed in her Bronx apartment. “We leave our shit at the door and watch each other express ourselves in a way society looks down on. It’s really beautiful to watch.” It has also taught her that authority can be an illusion. “When you think about women dancing, who’s really in control of the situation?”

A genuine advocate for animals, Nina rescues pit bulls and has been a vegan for as long as she can remember. Just don’t grill her on her diet. “A lot of times people ask, ‘What do you eat, lettuce? Bunny food?’ Then you end up defending yourself for something you believe in. So I don’t ever tell anybody.” The way to her heart? Directness and open body language. If you want to keep up with her, an audacious spirit is a prerequisite. “I like pushing boundaries,” she says with a sly smile.

Nina Daniele, our April 2017 Playmate, isn’t afraid of much. Except maybe clowns and rollercoasters. What about what turns her on? Let’s just say she likes a guy who isn’t afraid of felines and one who is extremely discerning when it comes to snapping, and possibly sending, the ever-divisive dick pic.

But take note: “I feel like I have more turn-offs than turn-ons!,” she says. “If you’re standing on the subway and a guy sits down while you’re standing, I probably wouldn’t talk to him again. It sounds so whatever, but it reflects maybe everything else. Maybe he wouldn’t hold the door open for you or won’t consider putting you first.”

BEHIND-THE-SCENES WITH ELIZABETH ELAM

MY TAKE ON NUDITY
It’s never been a big deal to me. Everyone, unless you’re a never-nude, is naked every single day. It’s normal. It’s natural. What’s scarier is sharing who you are with somebody. That’s rarer than being naked in everyday life.

WORK YOUR NERVES

Owning your nervousness can be flattering. Don’t try to be cool. Don’t try to hide that nervousness. If a girl wants to look down on you for it, why are you talking to her? Don’t fake it.

WHAT MAKES ME FEEL SEXY
Feeling secure makes me feel sexy. I feel sexy post-shower or in a T-shirt and underwear on the couch, watching Netflix. It’s an inner feeling. It’s all about being confident and comfortable—that’s when you’re sexiest.

IF YOU WANT TO BUY ME A DRINK
As far as wine goes, I’m a red wine girl, for sure. Cabernet all the way. For some reason, rum straight is the easiest liquor for me to drink. And whiskey and apple juice is my favorite mixed drink. If you haven’t had it, add a splash of apple juice to your glass of whiskey. It just tastes like whiskey but without the burn, and it’s so good.

MY FAVORITE FOODS
I like the worst, most basic all-American foods, like pizza, french fries, chicken wings, nachos, pasta and potatoes in any form you can cook them. I love cooking. I have my grandmother’s mashed potato recipe, which is the bomb. I also do a hamburger steak with eggs and bread crumbs. It’s basically a huge meatball patty, and it’s delicious.

MY PERFECT DAY
I love beach days. I’ll go to the beach around 11 a.m.—no need to wake up too early—come home, chill, do the whole getting-ready ritual. Then I’ll meet up with friends at a bar. You know those nights that start out as nothing and then you end up staying out till four in the morning? Those are the best.

EQUAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST
Equality has always been important to me. I’m the only person in my family who’s not very conservative. In politics, a lot of the time people are afraid to admit they were wrong, so they latch on even more tightly to their beliefs. The more wrong they feel, the tighter they grip. But how privileged do you have to be to feel that human rights and equality aren’t at the forefront when deciding who you’ll vote for?
