Mask-Wearing Distress Conceptual Art

There’s a glimmer at the end of the mask-wearing tunnel — but not every American is ready to take on the world with a bare face.

Mask On, Mask Off

With vaccinations ramping up in the U.S. and infection rates dropping — even in cities hit hardest by COVID-19 — the Centers for Disease Control has relaxed their mask mandates for those who’ve received the jab. But not every business and local government, or their coronavirus-wary citizens, are eager to give up the face coverings that have been credited with saving thousands of lives.MORE from Penthouse

LaSirena69 Promoting a Car Sex Concept

If you were a car door, I’d slam you all night long.

Start Your Engines (for Exceptional Car Sex)

Car sex has all the elements of a thrilling fuck — urgency, risk and the undeniable teenage nostalgia that comes along with it. We’ve all awkwardly slid into the passenger seat or been jabbed in the thigh by a gear stick while trying to climb over the center console of a motor vehicle for the sake of sex. For some of us, car sex was the holy grail of our high-school hookups. But car sex shouldn’t just be reserved for teens. In fact, a study based on search engine data showed more than 6,600 Americans Google “how to have sex in a car” every month. Before you go giving or getting some rev-worthy road head, here are five things you should know first.MORE from Penthouse

The Rock on Rock

Wrestling legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has not only skyrocketed to the top of the Hollywood heap — he’s become a social media superstar.

Rock Solid

Fifteen years ago, the world was already smelling what The Rock was cooking — and couldn’t get enough of it. During his conversation with Penthouse in October 2006, Dwayne Johnson displayed his charisma, sense of humor and showbiz smarts as he discussed his role in the video game Spy Hunter and his burgeoning acting career. But since then, the WWE legend has amassed an impressive movie resume, with films that have raked in more than $10.5 billion worldwide at the box office, making him one of the globe’s highest-grossing actors — and the most followed American on Instagram.

His eyebrow-raising success has included him starring in and producing the hit HBO series Ballers, appearing in the Fast & Furious and Jumanji franchises and taking a musical turn in Disney’s Moana as bombastic demigod Maui, among other successful projects. And his eventful life has even inspired the sitcom Young Rock, which was recently renewed for a second season on NBC.

Now 49, the gregarious star is larger than life at six-foot-four and a reported 260 pounds of muscle, but he’s earned a spot as one of pop culture’s most endearing personalities — thanks in no small part to his Instagram account @therock.

In his picture-packed posts, Johnson demonstrates how he maintains his impressive physique, dishes about his movie work and business projects, gives heartwarming insights into his personal life and delivers encouraging messages.

With 244 million followers, he’s the most popular actor on the platform, only coming in second to Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano) but topping “God Is a Woman” singer Ariana Grande (@arianagrande).

When the California-born performer surpassed the impressive 200 million mark in October 2020, he expressed his gratitude, telling fans he was “humbled” by their support.

Piper Kerman, author of Orange Is the New Black, wrote about The Rock’s universal appeal, calling him a “uniter, not a divider.”

His incredible popularity has even sparked chatter that he may launch a bid for the White House one day.

When asked about a potential presidential run during an interview earlier this year on Today, The Rock admitted, “I do have that goal to unite our country, and I also feel that if this is what the people want, then I will do that.”
He added, “If the time comes where there is a good amount of people who want to see that happen, then I’m going to consider it.”

The self-described “political independent and centrist,” who threw his weight behind Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in in 2020, didn’t elaborate on what party he might possibly represent or give any sort of time frame. But The Rock’s remarks followed him sharing a poll on social media, which revealed 46 percent of those surveyed said they’d consider casting their vote for him as commander in chief.

In his post about the poll, The Rock wrote: “I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club — but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people.”

With all he’s achieved so far, there’s little reason to doubt The Rock could successfully make the leap from the squared circle to the Oval Office.

Being rather the modern — ideal in some views — man, The Rock has multiple social media accounts on the standard platforms, but sees no need for a “personal” web site. That said, his Seven Bucks Productions company has one, and you can adorn yourself with Rock Gear at another should you desire. To put it simply, should you desire more, Rock On. (Sorry. Sometimes we simply cannot help ourselves.)

The Band Mogwai

The surprise success of Scottish band Mogwai’s latest album, As the Love Continues — which reached No. 1 on the U.K. charts — raises some questions, but maybe none more pertinent than this: Have Mogwai moved closer to the world, or has the world moved closer to Mogwai?

Earth to Mogwai

The band’s 1997 debut album, Mogwai Young Team, peaked at No. 75 on the U.K. charts just a few months after Tony Blair’s New Labour seized power with its new masculinity, new meritocracy, new everything — a Team-U.K. shininess, brashness and pre-Iraq War confidence reflected in sobriquets such as Britpop and Cool Britannia. Be Here Now by Oasis and Spiceworld by the Spice Girls were the bestselling U.K. albums that year. MORE from Penthouse

Arianna Aries for Camster Dirty Talk

When you talk dirty, does it feel erotic and sensual? Or, do you find it awkward as hell?

Talk Dirty to She

So you want to talk dirty? You know, as much as we love a naughty conversation with a hot chick, many of us do not necessarily list improv as one of our top talents when we’re about to hook up with her. During the heat of the moment, it can be easy to lean in for the kiss, slide in your tongue, caress her tit, and such. When using “our words” to show how turned on, though, that requires a skill for the game that many of us quite frankly never have much of a chance to practice. Many of us fall into the actions speak louder than words category, mostly because we understand the actions of sex, while the words can leave us feeling like inept virgins. Consequently many of us miss out on the chance to put the icing on the cake, the whipped cream on the pie — as it were.MORE from Penthouse
