Neferteri Shepherd is the Playboy Playmate for July 2000. Neferteri Shepherd claims she was born to model, and she has the moniker to confirm it. Her first name is Egyptian for “here comes the beautiful one,” a fitting description for this looker. Newlywed Neferteri (her friends call her Nef) studies business in college and lives in Berkeley, California. “I basically want to be my own boss — I don’t want to work for anyone else,” says Nef. An avid reader, she has what it takes to go to the head of the class, but Nef’s been chasing her true calling for as long as she can remember.
Now that’s she’s older and wiser, does Nef feel confident about posing in the buff? “I went to a nude beach when I was 16 and didn’t feel comfortable with it,” she says. “Now, after posing for Playboy, my confidence has been boosted [laughs]. I look at nudity as art, depending on how it’s presented. I never thought my body was nice until I started dancing and looking at other people’s bodies. My breasts are natural — it’s all me.”
Nef is fortunate to have a husband and family who support her new found freedom of expression. “I just got married last December, and my husband is excited about my being in Playboy,” she says. “At first, he didn’t want me to do it, but my mom really wanted me to go for it.” Nef, who was born in New Orleans but raised in California, has a family reunion in Mississippi this month where she can expect to meet previously unknown relatives, now that word is out that there’s a Playmate in the family. “It’s going to be out in the cut — we’re supposed to bring tents and camp out,” she says. The cut? “You know, in the woods, somewhere far out.”
