Since Brooke Burke posed in our May 2001 issue—at the height of popularity
of TV's Wild On, the show that beamed her from the world's beaches into our
hearts—we haven't stopped daydreaming about her charm and beauty. So we
sent Senior Contributing Photographer Stephen Wayda to track her down and prove
she's still wild. Our Rabbit blushes.
72 BAGHDAD AFTER HOURS
By day in Iraq, soldiers battle insurgents, contractors dodge kidnappers and
journalists rush to the sites of car bombs. But after sunset they let loose
in an entirely different world. Here's our report on Iraq at night. BY NICOLAS
88 DREAM BOATS
We sailed the seas to find the world's finest yachts. Don't want the headache
of a $50 million float? No problem—you can lease these luxury cruisers
by the week. Here's picturing you and your party posse bobbing in an oceangoing
Jacuzzi. BY JASON HARPER
94 HOLY WAR
George W. Bush gave up drinking for Jesus. Fair enough. Other implications of
W's faith aren't so innocuous: He blocks federal funding to groups that support
abortion, opposes research that could save lives and sees violence in the Levant
as part of God's master plan. When will America realize that homegrown religious
zealotry is threatening our country? BY ARTHUR SCHLESINGER JR.
112 THE IDENTITY ADDICT
From September 2000 to March 2001, a high school dropout stole the identities
of more than 200 people on the Forbes 400 list and pocketed $260 million before
a simple mistake landed him in prison. He agreed to sit down with our reporter
and reveal a fraud system that he says is simple enough for a 12-year-old to
master. All it takes is gloves, a cell phone, the ability to schmooze bank officials
and a color printer. BY MARK BOAL
118 20Q JOHN CARMACK
The Doom video game franchise has earned more than $200 million. We sat down
with its eccentric creator and talked about his quest to fire into space the
first nongovernment-sponsored craft, the best video games ever, his ability
to count cards and the secret to working 80 hours a week. BY JASON BUHRMESTER
127 CENTERFOLDS ON SEX: DIVINI RAE
This sexual acrobat treads the fine line between rough and gentle sex.
128 TABOO SEX
The former ballerina is quite a sensation in bed, but not just because of years
of pelvic exercises, pirouettes and stretches at the barre. In this erotic essay,
she traces her love affair with taking it in through the out door, from her
first experience to the transcendent encounters that enabled her to find God.
BY TONI BENTLEY
84 ST. MARK'S DAY
At Flyworld® bugs fornicate and frolic. But even flies suffer from midlife
crises, and the head of one dipterous family doesn't want to join the fun. BY
63 OLIVER STONE
The controversial director is the ruler of biopics about such leaders as JFK,
Nixon, Castro and, for his new film, Alexander the Great. In a cigar-smoking
Playboy Interview, Stone gets out from behind the camera to document his own
positions. Learn whether he'll make a movie about Bush, what Platoon would be
like if set in Iraq and whether his dad really hired a hooker to devirginize
him. BY DAVID SHEFF
