1960 – 1969
Playmates of The Year (PMOY)
Playmates of The Month (PMOM)
Golfing, swimming and horseback riding.
Take me away to the ballet.
What I like are understanding, affection and personality.
I like gentleness, warmth, unpredictability.
I’ve modeled for many record album covers.
I’m known for my work in Playboy After Dark.
I’d like to be a movie actress. I enjoy reading mythology.
Because I’ve always enjoyed the magazine, and I’m honored to appear in it.
I have experience in being a lifeguard, swimming instructress, secretary, fashion modeling.
What I like about men are money in their pockets, hair on their chests, brains in their heads.
My measurements: 37C-23-36.
I’ve been a salesgirl in an exclusive men’s shop and done publicity for a swimming pool company.
It has since become a many-splendored art form, blending agility, grace.
Playboy’s readers and editors were in complete accord last year in their pick of the fetching Playmate pack.
My measurements are: 37-21-36.
I want a man who’s courteous, considerate and a gentleman. I’m tired of men who are the opposite of what I want.
I have to thank my pair of flashing green eyes and a fetching fuselage.
These results should prove equally delightful.
A film contract might put an end to my skydiving diversions.
All good things come to those who wait.
Unswerving gaze of thousands of female fame-and-fortune-seekers from shore to shore.
My class; the class of 36-22-35, figures to get A+ for attendance in my concentrated course in anatomy.
I could hardly be expected to hide my assets (37-22-36) under a blanket.
I will never go out of fashion.
As a Bunny, I’m already leading a show biz kind of life.
I have the title of Miss Indiana in this year’s Miss World Beauty Pageant.
I definitely do not dig over-egoed guys who call me “honey” at first sight.
My only requirement in men is that they be fun to be with. I can’t stand fellows with moody or sleepy personalities.
I have high hopes of eventually making a big splash in showbiz.
I love exotic food, ghost towns and windy nights.
My particular outboard assets (38-22-34) can hardly be muffled the way they’re arranged.
I love relaxing in the hay.
My cantilevered construction (39-23-35) receives the warmest reception of all.
I’m a secretary for a lingerie manufacturer in the garment district of New York.
Nothing depresses me more than sobersided types who can’t give or take a joke.
I’m terribly unrealistic — I want to become a great actress, and travel extensively, and marry a wise, decisive man.
I am a very healthy, well-adjusted, fun-loving kind of girl.
I was always the tallest and gawkiest girl in my class.
It’s all about sacrificing beautiful young virgins to Egyptian deities.
When it finally gives way, maybe we’ll begin to understand, accept and, who knows, even rejoice in our sexual identities.
The ones with the saddest eyes always win.
Unlike a lot of girls I know, I’m totally unimpressed by bold, brash, dynamic types.
Just call me the original disorganization girl.
I like portraits best, probably because I like people. The yoga bit is recent. I haven’t achieved spiritual well-being from it yet — just a sore neck.
Some day I may have to work steadily.
I enjoy it. You might say it’s part of growing up.
I should laugh it off, I know, as being the way the world is. But I can’t — my hopes are always too high.
I’m attracted to bright lights and sports cars.
The fun ones — honest and outgoing guys who show me a happy time.
I’d like to be a professional singer someday — but I’m not counting on it, so if no one discovers me I won’t be disappointed.
I’m so happy I feel like running out and giving everyone who voted for me a hug and a kiss.
I was the original shy and retiring type.
I’m quite a cocinera when it comes to chili and tortillas.
A few years ago I dated a butcher, and he got me interested in the meat business.
It occurred to me that no one from Playboy would ever find me here on his own.
Though I’m sometimes busier than I’d like to be, I find time to enjoy paintings, men and Manhattan.
I knew I had the wherewithal to be a Playmate, but I was hesitant to travel all the way to America.
I sometimes think I’m just not getting enough sleep. I hate to snooze too much.
And when I told them I’d been chosen May Playmate, they were totally overwhelmed.
I love being a Playmate because what could be more exciting than being a Playmate?
Is there any chance of a small-town girl who doesn’t know any important professional photographers… becoming a Playmate?
I’ve already put my Playmate-photo prize money in a special oversees ‘ballerina-or-bust’ savings account.
I love being a Playmate because of the glamour and excitement!
I’m only sorry there aren’t more hours in the day. There are so many things I want to do, and so little time to do them.
By the time I reached eighth grade, I already had a number of years of ballet and tap lessons behind me. I’ve never had any doubts that it would be a dancer’s life for me.
I enjoyed being a Bunny, but when I found out the magazine was looking for an editorial receptionist, I decided to throw my hat in the ring.
I’ve already picked out an eighteen-foot day sailor to buy with the money I receive from my Playmate appearance. I’m so excited about it.
I love being a Playmate because honestly, I need the money! I’m a typical female when it comes to clothes. My eyes are a lot bigger than my bank account.
I may be able to combine business with pleasure by working my way up into international riding competitions.
Everyone should dance a little. It’s a great way to have fun and keep in shape at the same time.
Being a Playmate is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me. I wasn’t really sure I was the right type.
I love Playboy and I’m still amazed and so honored to have been chosen to be a Playmate.
He asked me if I would like to consider becoming a Playmate, the first-ever English Playmate.
I love being a Playmate because I think Playboy is an intellectually stimulating magazine. Of course, I also love modeling and the attention.
Rock-‘n’-roll music really does something to me. My feet get all tingly when the beat begins.
“If I could, I would become more daring like I was during my Playboy photoshoot. If I could be like that all the time, I could do great things.
I’ve always loved animals. My bunny’s name is Tuffs, and he’s sort of a Playboy in his own right.
I had been so afraid of getting my hopes up. I just kept telling everyone ‘we’ll have to wait and see’ and now this. I can’t believe I’m Playmate of the Year!
With the money I’ve received for my Playmate appearance, I’m now able to give my undivided attention to the pursuit of a sheepskin.
I guess I’m luckier than a lot of kids from so-called happy homes whose parents never took time to help them with any of their teenage growing pains.
I really don’t care where we go, as long as I’m with someone I like.
I like dancing, sunbathing, attending car races, relaxing and swimming at the beach. All Nordic women are secretly in love with the sun.
Anyone who tells you that girls love to gossip is absolutely right.
Important as my career is to me, I’m a woman first. I like to think of myself as being open to the world, brimming with love and music.
I don’t like to analyze it, but I know I have to be an actress. It’s a very compulsive thing—when I’m acting, I’m happy. When I’m not, I’m miserable.
Posing for Playboy broadened my mind and helped me as a person. I like my life the way it is now.
As an Aries, I’m under the planet Mars which means I have a great deal of natural courage, a love of pioneering, testing, experimenting, and investigating.
I’ll admit it — I’d like to get married. I want to have a home with a family.
My perfect man would be someone like Lawrence of Arabia—without the hang-ups. He cannot have long hair, though. That’s one of my turnoffs.
If I want to exercise outdoors and it’s raining, I’ll put on a bikini and run around the block a couple of times.
My ideal evening includes dinner at Scandia, night cruise to Catalina and greeting the milkman in the morning.
I’d always wanted to be a Playmate, but once I got settled in my Theater Bunny routine, I never thought I’d get closer.
Being a Playmate still seems like a beautiful dream—and if it is, I’m not anxious to wake up.
Besides being fun, riding is the best way to keep in shape of my all-natural 40D boobs.
I had never heard of Playboy before, but now, I’m a Bunny at the Playboy Club in New York City and Playmate of the Month.
When I first arrived in the States, I worked first at a Nordic-style restaurant on a lake in Minnesota. That’s where I heard about Playboy.
Being a Playmate, beginning an acting career and now getting elected Playmate of the Year—it’s all happened so quickly that it doesn’t seem real to me.
I was so impressed by the people I met when I visited the Playboy Mansion. That I wanted more than ever to be a Playmate.
Without making a big thing out of it, I guess I do try to groove to the fun side of life as much as possible.
Most people don’t realize how difficult and exhausting it is to hold a single pose for the better part of an hour, but every model does.
I’m a conservative, but I think every girl who has the figure for it wishes she could be a Playmate, and I’m no exception.
What I do want is to follow up my Playmate appearance with more modeling.
Like most models, I’m a natural ham at heart; give me a wig and I just have to mug.
I love being a Playmate because the Playmate ideal expresses a healthy perspective toward nudity and sex. I really enjoy working at Playboy.
I sometimes fantasize myself into great movies, such as Doctor Zhivago and Blow-Up, but I do recognize the realities of life.
My ambitions have always been to have the freedom to do what I want and for my ideas never to become old-fashioned.
My weak spot is my desire to be alone, it’s probably selfish.
In all honesty, being a Playmate hasn’t really changed me very much.
I love being a Playmate because I believe the human form is a beautiful thing and I am proud of it.
My friends know that I’m young, sexy, somewhat intellectual woman who hate parties, love teachers, enjoys money.
My folks were as happy as I was when I became a Bunny. And now to be a Playmate, too—I’m sure glad I didn’t get that wig-modeling job.
I was the first black woman to enter the Miss Texas Pageant.
My ambitions are to model and act. But, I’d also like a good husband and children—but not for years.
I spend an embarrassing amount of money on clothing, but I’m crazy about the new fashions.
In ancient times, the purpose of clothes wasn’t to hide nudity, but to decorate the body and we should never allow ourselves to forget that.
Cooking and sleeping out, sailing, swimming—really most all activities in or around the water—that’s my kind of life.
At first I thought they were putting me on, but it turned out they were really on the level.
I love being a Playmate because it’s a financially rewarding means to satisfy my exhibitionist tendencies!
I’m a Bunny at the Playboy resort in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
