The one and only Teyana Taylor, whose sophomore album K.T.S.E. dropped in June 2018, covers Playboy's September/October issue, which also marks the return of our infamous College Girls pictorial, for which we scoured the nation's best universities for curious coeds across all disciplines. Stephanie Haney was one of those girls in 2009, when she posed for our ACC College Girls special that year; this issue, she's returning to provide an overview of what sex looks like on campus, in all its forms and in the time of Betsy DeVos rolling back Title IX protections.

Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon sits for the Playboy Interview to chat about his new film, What They Had and why he would never play Donald Trump while actress Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Atomic Blonde and former Madonna backup dancer) gets goofy–and sexy—in 20Q. John Meroney profiles Glenn Greenwald five years after he helped break the Edward Snowden story, and whether or not you believe Greenwald kicked ass in doing so, you'll be down with Millarworld's contribution to this issue, an exclusive new Kick-Ass graphic novel short.

Speaking of shorts, our two Playmates, Kirby Griffin and Olga de Mar, have no use for them in their September and October Playmate pictorials, respectively. Meanwhile, Hernan Diaz and John Wray are this issue's Playboy Fiction contributors, and Jonathan Tasini grapples with human bondage and the many forms it still manifests in our modern society. No worries: Peter Simek will afterward lift your hearts with his story on VETPAW, about veterans who work in the South African bush to save the elephants.
