Shae Marks is the Playboy Playmate for May 1994. Shae Marks is one beautiful collection of contradictions. This becomes clear the moment I open the door to greet her. Based on her photo and the conversations we’ve had on the phone, I fully expect to find a tall, bold woman. Instead, I discover a polite waif clad in faded jeans, a sweatshirt and sneakers, carrying an armload of books. I think for a second that some schoolgirl has accidentally knocked on my door. But when she speaks, I realize that this is the same person. Oh, and those aren’t books. “These are albums of my photo shoot in Los Angeles,” she says offhandedly, and plops them onto a table.
The contradictions continue to reveal themselves: Although Shae delivers cars from auctions to a wholesale lot for a living, she got lost on the way to the interview. She weighs just over a hundred pounds, but she eats a meal — including a fried cheese appetizer — fit for a hungry man. Clearly, she was born to be in front of the camera, yet she hopes one day to work behind it. The biggest contradiction of all? Shae Marks says of herself, “I am very insecure.” She says this staring me straight in the eye with all of the assuredness of the queen of England. The incongruity of these things doesn’t immediately occur to Shae. But when I point it out, she explains each seeming conflict. Of course she can have no sense of direction and still earn money driving. “We drive in packs, and I’m always in the middle. I was always a passenger before I took the job, and I didn’t have to pay much attention.” As for the high-fat food cooked in oil, well, she doesn’t really have to think about it: “I work out all the time.” –Playboy
