1980 – 1989
Playmates of The Year (PMOY)
Playmates of The Month (PMOM)
For one thing, marriage doesn’t appeal to me at all.
I can go from totally innocent to totally sophisticated to totally sexy.
I need a lot of romance. That extra phone call, flowers or something silly in the mail.
This is my first experience as a nude model, but, I find it to be easier than fashion modeling.
I think Catholics are probably more guilt-ridden about sex than other people, but I’m not.
Don’t ask me a lot of questions. I’m too complicated, too full of contradictions.
I’m a person of extremes. I’m caught between the romantic and the bizarre. I love things that are not necessary.
I like to wear wild clothes, to hear people clapping. I love that vibe.
It’s a freedom for me, a release. I can express myself better that way than verbally.
Sex, for me, anyway, is almost an artistic expression created by two people. Of course, it helps if you’re in love.
I’ll get a chance to present what I hope will be a good imagine of the Playmates to the public.
Sailing is like sex, when you haven’t done it for a while, it’s especially great!
I think women are more emotional than men. I don’t think blurring the sex roles makes any sense.
My family thinks my being a Playmate is wonderful. Even my grandmother thought it was great.
I like older men because, let’s face it, they know how to behave with a woman.
It took me a while to pose for Playboy though, but, I thought if I didn’t do it, I’d kick myself later.
I don’t like to call it sex; I call it making love.
I don’t think I’ve ever been in love. I’ve loved people, but not love love.
I always lose the staring contest, because I think he’ll see the lust in my heart.
I’ve been the girl next door to more people than I can count.
It’s all nonsense; one guy likes legs, another guy likes boobs… you have to look at what’s inside.
I really had always wanted to be a Playmate. Every girl’s fantasy is to be the most beautiful.
When you go up for your black belt, there are no more camera angles. You recite the poem of perseverance.
I know my Playboy work isn’t going to last forever and I want to take advantage of all of it.
I used to think then, I wish I had a body good enough to be in Playboy!
I always worked on my personality, because I thought that was the only thing that would get me anywhere.
Running has opened up my life. Besides the physical part of it, there’s spiritual dimension.
I guess he liked that. Anyway, he noticed me. And I was hired.
I’d rather do something physically dangerous than go along on an even keel.
Lying in front of a fire, roasting marshmallows. If you can’t tell, I’m a hopeless romantic.
If you talked to the opposite sex more than to your own, you had a problem.
My mother told me that if you don’t follow up on your dreams, you’ll wind up desperate and frustrated. So I called Playboy.
I love the feel of the stage—the lights, the smiles, the fun—but, I don’t think I could ever be a star myself.
I don’t really worry about anything. I think about things a lot, but I never worry.
I try not to make eye contact, but, sometimes you can’t avoid it. Being the center of attention makes me nervous.
I’m too much of an outdoorsy person for a nine-to-five job. I had one for two years, and after I quit.
Girls come up to me on campus and ask, “Are you proud to be in Playboy?” I say yes. It’s an honor to be a Playmate and a brunette.
I didn’t know the models would be nude! I could have died, I was so embarrassed.
I like to experiment with sex, to feel my way along in finding out what the other person likes and to show him what I like.
What do I have to say about these pictures? Well, I’ve always enjoyed lying around naked with eight or ten people taking pictures.
Working with Playboy has been the turning point of my life.
I was lucky enough to be chosen as the first video Playmate on both the cassette and the disc versions.
Ice cream is one of my weaknesses. I’d say I go to Baskin-Robbins for ice cream at least four nights a week.
You have to pull yourself out of a depression. You can’t depend on someone else to do it.
I am religious. All of my life, I was dictated to—dos and don’ts.
I don’t know when I first thought of modeling as a career. I knew it was a clothes-on, clothes-off proposition.
I don’t have that kind of look, but I’ve got a real nice body, and I’ve got… beautiful legs.
I’d rather be the one with the money. I want my own, you know what I mean?
I took a look at the Playmate and thought for sure I would grow up to look like that
How long will I model? Well, I believe I’ll go crazy before I get too old for this business.
Being a Playmate has made me more aware that I can be sexy. I think every woman should pose nude.
One of the reasons I posed for Playboy was to see if I was really as insecure about my looks as I thought I was.
I used to be really shy, and I’ve just broken that barrier.
When I was in high school, I thought being a Playmate was far too… I mean, I couldn’t even see that.
It’s easy after you become a Bunny and you know what you’re doing, know the ropes. But, it’s not easy to become a Bunny.
I had never modeled before in my life. So, naturally, I hadn’t modeled with my clothes off.
First of all, my parents never talked to us about sex. It just never came up.
I discovered I have to adopt a different personality toward the public because I’m a woman.
I don’t feel famous. I’m excited by being a Playmate. I feel glamorous, but also feel like one of the guys.
My rpms are way up.
Now, with sex, I must say I prefer the French. Americans are more repressed,
I’ll go with my lover and we’ll make love with just the animals for company.
I’ve always been told I was unique-looking, but unique doesn’t always make it for a model.
I have definite feelings about women’s lib. I think the main idea is terrific. I think they’ve gotten carried away with it.
You know, I really have expensive taste in lingerie. Some of it was even from Rome.
They called me back to compete, but I was busy doing the Playmate Playoffs show for The Playboy Channel.
I dated a lot of Japanese men and ended up married to one for a time.
When I’m in front of that camera, I become somebody else. It’s like a release.
In high school, I was voted the senior most likely to be a Playboy Centerfold.
We talked about how pictures of a beautiful woman can be art.
I let men get to me and I’ve got a nervous stomach. I don’t think I want to get married.
I like to have fun, but when I go into the bank, I’m Miss Conservative.
Exposing myself in front of millions of people was an experience I’d been thinking about. I felt sexy and I wanted to share it.
I don’t want to have to go to bed with all those guys, and that’s what they expect. That’s just the way they are.
Virginity isn’t something you discuss. I’m not ashamed of still having mine, mind you.
It’s important to me to be able to achieve something on my own, I don’t necessarily have to be rich.
For half my life, I’ve wanted to be one of those naked ladies.
I want to be up there. And I went, took off my clothes, and they said, “you’re hired.”
I want someone who works hard and plays hard, whatever he does.
I started doing bikini contests on a wing, a bikini and a prayer. Hell, my mom even bought me my first bikini.
I’m a high-energy person around the clock. I know that whatever I do, I will be very happy.
Something hit me when I was 15 and I decided to become more feminine.
It’s not that I love modeling so much, but it opens up possibilities for a future I can really enjoy.
It’s not so glamorous. It’s not so exciting. I’ve lived all over the world by myself.
Without anyone I knew around, I seemed to lose my sense of identity.
Being Miss October is a thrill. I feel so sexy. But, I hope it’s just the first thrill.
I’m a strong Catholic, that I believe in God and that I’m posing for Playboy.
I’d never modeled before, so posing for Playboy has been like a crash course in modeling techniques for me.
Once I walked through the doors at Playboy, I felt as if this is where I belonged.
For the first time in my life, I was away from horses and had no place to channel that energy.
Acting and actors don’t turn me on.
Things have worked out wonderfully. Working hard when it’s worktime and playing when it’s playtime.
I’ve done things before that have been very camp, very feminine. I want my solo show to be hard-hitting.
People who don’t understand the business think you are fooling around. It’s hard work.
Boredom never knocks on my door.
What everybody wants to know is, can I have sex?
If you have certain flaws, as we all do, you don’t always hide them. You put them to use.
Being in Playboy is the biggest rush. I’m completely excited.
I’m on a classics binge. I wouldn’t call myself cerebral, really, but intellectual things do appeal to me.
You appreciate things more when you have to work for them.
I knew there had to be something else out there for me—something even more important.
Souri is currently in a relationship with a woman named Eliya Zweybergin.
I really think the key to being sexy is to think that way. I can be a flirt, but I’m very passionate by nature.
Writing is like sex—fantasies can make it better.
Some men want to sleep with me because I’m Oriental. They think I’ll be subservient.
You work a few months, you take off for a few months for a little adventure. You have to enjoy the freshness.
I’ve put a lot of work into this body. That’s why I don’t mind showing myself naked.
I’ll be whatever—I really have no idea what I’m going to be, but I know one thing: I’m going to enjoy it.
I am completely satisfied with who I am and where I am, inside and out.
I looked at the cover and thought, “that girl’s pretty”, and then I thought, “wait a minute, that girl’s me!”
I never thought of myself as a Playmate of the Month——Playmates are gorgeous.
My ambition is to follow the golden road of success to the top… and to be happy.
It’s close to rhythmic gymnastics—it has the elements of dance and acrobatics.
I dragged her to a mirror and made her look, oh, for sure, that’s the girl who will be in Playboy.
Making love is too important to use as a form of entertainment.
I wasn’t quite prepared for this. You don’t pose nude every day. But once I decided to just be me, it was easy.
It was a very long thirty seconds. I pushed it up and slid under it. Then it landed on my hair.
Playmate of the Year is exciting, but there’s responsibility, too.
I always told her I was going to be a Playmate, like she was.
Appearing nude in Playboy isn’t weird. Being uncomfortable nude is weird.
