Kristen Nicole is the Playboy Playmate for May 2013.”I absolutely love to travel and see the world,” says Miss May Kristen Nicole. “Spain, Rome, Venice, St.-Tropez—I can never get enough.” As grand as those destinations may be, sometimes the greatest escape is closer to home. “Mexico is my favorite getaway of all,” says the statuesque California-born-and-bred beauty. “And it’s right in my own backyard. From my airport to a Mexican beach is four hours.” Naturally we wanted Kristen to be happy, glowing and hot as a chili pepper for her pictorial. So off we jetted to a beachfront villa in Punta Mita on the Pacific coast, just in time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Says Kristen, “I love Cinco de Mayo. Why? Because I love tequila. It’s my drink of choice.” When we got to the beach, Miss May didn’t need any tequila to loosen up in front of the camera—no surprise since she’s an accomplished bikini model. As for her Playmate status, she’ll drink to that: down the hatch with a shot of Patrón. “I’m ecstatic, and I want to show everything I’ve got,” she says. “I want to be sexy, to be beautiful, to be smart—I want to be the girl every guy wants.”

Jessie Cabanne is the Playboy Cybergirl of the Month for April 2013. You’re in big trouble with Playboy Cybergirl Jessie Cabanné. She’s petite – 5’4” – with brown hair, brown-green eyes and an infectious laugh. “I’m from Pismo Beach, California,” she says. “I was a geek in high school – I had big hair and braces, and I played in the band.” These days, Jessie is a bit of a troublemaker. “I’m always doing something fun,” she says, smiling. She’s always doing something, all right – Jessie works as a hairstylist, a receptionist at a tanning salon and a waitress. “I like to do something different every day,” she says. Speaking of which, this is Jessie’s first time posing nude, and she couldn’t wait to see her pictures. “I love my body,” she says, “and I love Playboy. So posing nude is the perfect way to show it off.” When she’s not working, Jessie likes to spend time with her friends – shopping and clubbing with the girls, or a game of cards and a beer with the guys. “I’m single, and I have a thing for bad boys,” she admits. “But when I’m in a relationship, I go all out. I want it every day.”

You’ll have fun with Playboy Amateur Heidi Rosa. She’s a Latina – half Spanish, half Mexican – with brown hair, brown eyes and full lips. “My lips are one of my best features,” she says, and her voice is deep and sensuous. “Or so I’m told.” Heidi comes to you from Las Vegas, Nevada, where she works in bottle service at a high-end club on the Strip – and though fortunes are made and lost in Vegas in one evening, Heidi prizes her values over valuables. “I wouldn’t be who I am today without my family,” she says. “I was raised to be a strong and capable woman. I work on the Strip, so when I have a day off, I like to get out of town – hiking at Red Rocks or swimming at Lake Mead.” Heidi has been modeling since she was sixteen – she did a bit of print and convention modeling – but this is her first time posing nude. We hosted a casting in Vegas, and Heidi waited for hours for her chance to pose. “My agent told me about the casting, and I thought, ‘why not,’” she says. “Playboy models are some of the most beautiful women in the world.” When it comes to guys, Heidi doesn’t have a type, but she does have some personal qualifications. “I’m attracted to real people,” she says. “You can be an artist or an athlete – it doesn’t matter to me. And I don’t do games or pick-up lines. If you want my number, just be yourself. Get to know me.”

Playboy Amateur Jenni Lynn returns to Playboy Plus with a hot new set of pictures and video where she performs a sexy strip tease out of her turquoise lingerie. Jenni comes to you from sunny Los Angeles, California. She’s tall – 5’9” – with dark blonde hair, green eyes and a generous bust. She’s a working model, but this is her first time posing nude, and it’s only for Playboy Plus. “I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, and it’s great to finally do what I know I want to do,” she says. “I’m working with great people, and I get to be 100% myself – and I get to call myself a Playboy model.”
“I’m from North Canton, Ohio,” says Jenni. “It’s a small town, and it was very family-oriented. My mother raised us on her own before she remarried, and she taught me to be strong and to respect myself as a woman. In North Canton, everybody knows everybody – but in a big city like Los Angeles, and as a model, you have to be confident. I’ve had a lot to overcome in my life, but I have a big heart, and I smile every day.”
Jenni spends her free time with friends, and she always has a blast. “What don’t we do,” she says, laughing. “We go shopping during the day, and at night we go to bars and shows.” The usual thing for Los Angeles, but Jenni’s not into being pinned down. “I treat everybody the same,” she says. “I like a beer with the guys as much as I like a glass of wine with the girls. I never believed in labels.”
“I don’t really like dating,” says Jenni. “I like to have a partner – someone to experience life with. I’ve been in a lot of relationships that lacked trust, support, and most importantly, love. Being single, I don’t have to worry about any of that – between my friends and family, I have everything that I need.”

Follow your dreams with Playboy Cybergirl Jackie Dawn, a model and actress from Los Angeles, California. She’s petite, Asian and East Indian, with brown hair, brown eyes and natural breasts. “I grew up in Los Angeles,” she says, “and they don’t call it the City of Dreams for nothing. The old Hollywood glamour is inspiring, and the people – good and bad – motivate me to look and feel my best.” A self-described brain case, Jackie loves to read – she’s into fiction, and she’s not above a cheap romance novel – and she raises plants to maintain a sense of feng shui. She loves to go for dinner and drinks with friends, and she likes guys who are honest and kind.
You might think that you’ve seen Jackie before, and in a way, you have – her twin sister is fellow Playboy model Cassandra Dawn. “Cassandra is one inch older, one inch taller, and more responsible than me,” she says. “She’s the one who encouraged me to pursue a career as a model. We went to an open casting call, and they called us both back to audition for Playboy TV.” A few weeks later, we offered her a spot on Playboy Plus, and she didn’t hesitate to take it. “Playboy is forever,” she says. “I know I’ll look back on the experience with fondness.”

The people have spoken and with resounding fervor: Jennifer Vaughn is 2013 the Playboy Cybergirl of the Year!
That means more pictorials, more steamy videos and, hopefully, more giveaways. This blonde bombshell who hails from Houston, Texas told us last year that she believed the Playboy brand stood for “Beautiful, empowered women,” and we believe she embodies all those qualities and so much more. Jennifer Vaughn first shot with us back in 2010, when she posed for Cybergirl of the Week, and has been a fan favorite ever since.
“I love working with Playboy, so this was another great opportunity,” Jennifer said in her interview when she was named Cybergirl of the Month in December. “If you put your mind to something and you try really hard and just don’t stop, things can happen. Don’t let anything get in your way; just keep going.”
“I’m really looking forward to this year and I aim to please.” Jennifer said after finding out she was named CGOY, “I’m hoping (this year) will bring the most incredible memories of a life time. Between traveling all over the world, meeting a ton of new people and representing the company I love so much, this will all be a dream come true. I hope this journey helps to bring fans from all over the world to associate me with Playboy forever! Keep a look out for my upcoming pictorials, videos, and travels with Playboy. I promise it will be very entertaining! Thanks again everyone! This is going to be a great year! Xoxo’s! Thank you guys so much for all of your support! I appreciate it more than you will ever know! You guys are the best!”
Thanks to everyone who cast their vote and congratulations to Jennifer Vaughn on winning the title!
Enjoy these photos of Jennifer Vaughn, and get ready for a year of hot new photos of our sexy blonde CGOY 2013 at the Playboy Cyberclub.
Cassie Laine wants to be your Valentine, and with the help of photographer Holly Randall Cassie wants to make all your dreams come true, who wouldn’t want an amazing bodied brunette in red lingerie get naked today!!!
Cassie Laine, a nude model from Los Angeles, California. A real doll at 5’2”, under a hundred pounds, she’s all natural, with dark hair and eyes, and skin like fine porcelain. “I had planned to go to beauty school,” she says, her voice soft and gentle. “But then I got into modeling.” No modest mouse, Cassie went headlong into nude modeling – and before long, she was signed with an agency. “When I first started, I didn’t like the work,” she says. “I loved the outfits – having my hair and makeup done, looking beautiful – but it’s an art, and I had to practice to get it right.” Right or wrong, Cassie was thrilled to shoot for Playboy, and her first set was like a scene out of her favorite movie, Memoirs of a Geisha. “It had an Oriental theme,” she says, “and I got to wear a beautiful kimono. I loved it so much.” When she’s not working, hard-to-get Cassie takes it easy – going to dinner with friends, or staying home with a bowl of popcorn and a movie. “I mean, I like to get dressed up and go out,” she says. “But I prefer to stay home in my pajamas.” When it comes to dating, she plays even closer to home. “I like guys who are smart and confident, but not manipulative,” she says, light. “Actually, my on-screen crush is Christopher Walken. There’s just something about him!”

Meet Playboy Cybergirl Samantha Shane, from the old government town of West Chester, Pennsylvania. She’s English, German and Lebanese, with dark brown hair, brown eyes, a slim waist and a 34DD bust. “I’m from a small town,” she says. “I was never the popular girl, but I wasn’t unpopular, either. Everybody knows everybody else – that really made me the person I am today.” Nicknamed Bambi for her doe eyes, Samantha loves old Hollywood glamour, and cites Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Rita Hayworth as her idols.
Samantha is a student at West Chester University, and waits tables for a little extra money. When she’s not at school or work, she likes to get together with the girls, have a bottle of wine or champagne and dinner out – or spend a night on the couch with her boyfriend and a stack of DVDs. “I’m comfortable in our relationship,” she says. “I know he’ll always stand by my side.” She likes her men well-mannered and educated with a bit of a mean streak, like a three-day beard or a tattoo sleeve.
Samantha has a lot of modeling experience – she has been featured in print, like American Curves, Peach and MMA Sports magazines, online on Maxim and Strobe, and in promotions for Bud Light, Sunsilk and Axe Body Spray. This is her first time posing nude, and she can’t wait to repeat the experience. “I can’t wait to see what happens with Playboy,” she says, excited. “Posing nude feels natural for me, and I’m happy to be a member of the Playboy family.”

Sexy Playboy Cybergirl Ana Cheri rolls in from Huntington Beach, California. The largest coastal outpost in Orange County, it’s also known as Surf City, and chances are you’ll find Ana on the beach, soaking up the sun, sand and salt water. “I love the beach,” she says. “Sunscreen, hat and paddle board – that’s all I need.” Part Hispanic, part Native American, she’s got honey brown hair and eyes, long legs and a pair of breasts that she says herself are “amazing”.
She’s a great model, but she’s also a great hairstylist. “I give my clients killer haircuts,” Ana says. “I work hard and am very determined to be successful in what I do. I have a great support system – and I don’t mean my bra.” Ana’s such a hard worker that she doesn’t even take her downtime lying down. “I’m one tough cookie,” she says. “I love MMA, kickboxing and all kinds of outdoor sports with the guys. I can hold my own.” What about the girls? “We bake cookies, paint nails, naked pillow fight…you know, girl stuff.”
It won’t surprise you to know that Ana has previous modeling experience. “I’m good with people, so I do a lot of promotional modeling, but I’ve also done print work in the auto industry,” she explains. “But I’ve loved Playboy ever since I saw my first Centerfold. I’ve always wanted to be a part of it. The beautiful pictures…the doors it can open. I’m one step closer.”
Playboy recently did an in depth interview with Ana Cheri, so before checking out her hot body, do a little reading and find out more about this sexy brunette.
Playboy: Which physical feature do you get the most compliments on?
My smile and my booty.
Playboy: What do you love most about posing for Playboy?
Once you become a Cyber Girl you’re part of the Playboy family, and I aspire to become a Playmate someday, so I’m putting my foot in the door.
Playboy: What would the theme of your dream Playboy photo shoot be?
Probably very sexy, warm lighting, and me putting on my makeup or maybe getting undressed for the night. Something very girly but romantic at the same time.
Playboy: How do you stay in such killer shape?
I have a phenomenal personal trainer that I train with four times a week. He’s amazing. He gives me my diet routine and everything. I definitely have to work to look the way I do.
Playboy: Do you ever cheat and have something naughty to eat?
My favorite thing to cheat with is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They’re my absolute favorite. Anything peanut butter I love.
Playboy: Are you currently working or in school?
When I’m not modeling I’m a hair stylist and makeup artist.
Playboy: Which men’s hairstyle is hot for this fall?
A hot look for men this fall will be similar to Brad Pitt’s hair in Inglourious Basterds. German 1940s kind of look — very cute and clean-cut.
Playboy: What is one hair style or color all men should avoid?
Red hair color. Unless they’re a natural redhead they should probably stay away from it.
Playboy: What is the funniest thing that happened to you on set of your Playboy shoot?
That’s a tough one because we were laughing at everything all day. Probably when I took my clothes off for the first time on set, everyone went dead silent. I was like, “What!” and they were like, “Um, nothing, we see this every day.” I think they might have been checking me out!
Playboy: In your latest Playboy shoot you were wearing boxing gloves; do you box?
Yes, my trainer actually trains me in kickboxing. It’s a really good form of exercise and helps get that aggression out, and as a woman it’s important to feel strong and like you can protect yourself in any situation.
Playboy: Are you a UFC fan?
My trainer actually trains a lot of UFC fighters. He’s been on TV a few times. I watch him and see the fights so I do watch a lot of MMA.
Playboy: Who is your favorite UFC fighter?
I’d have to say Quinton “Rampage” Jackson; he’s the sweetest guy and a great dad. He’s such a doll.
Playboy: If you could go on a date with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Channing Tatum. I’m sure I’m going to get in trouble for this because his wife is gorgeous, but I don’t care!
Playboy: What qualities drive you wild in a man?
Manners. Treat me like a lady.
Playboy: What qualities drive you wild in a woman?
A sweet disposition, a very nice girl. I love boobs, I check out boobs. I’m kind of a boob girl — every girl I see, I’m like, your boobs look great! I tell my best friend that all the time when she wears this certain bra.
Playboy: Do you have any other secret talents?
I can kick anyone’s butt at air hockey. I might be interested in opening up a gym. It would be a kickboxing, MMA-style gym. I’m super into it and train a lot.
Playboy: What were you like in high school?
I was the biggest flirt. I was a cheerleader and social butterfly.
Playboy: What do you bring to Playboy that other women may not?
I’m a sweet girly girl with a tomboy sporty side. You don’t see too many centerfolds right now that are sporty and athletic so I think that’s an asset.
Playboy: What’s on your bedside table?
Water, jewelry, birth control and lube.

Brown-haired, green-eyed Playboy Cybergirl Miranda Nicole has a classic hourglass figure – an ample bust, a tapered waist and full hips. “I was born and raised in Southern California,” says Miranda. “I was a tomboy – I loved sports, and I wasn’t afraid to get dirty.” She landed a bridal modeling gig at fourteen, but she wanted to do something different. So she went to college to study broadcast journalism, and after a few years on the job market, she decided to give modeling another try. After a few gigs in fit and print and a stint as a promotional model for Corona, Miranda became an Amateur for Playboy Plus, and now has been upgraded to Cybergirl status!
Sure, she likes to do dinner, drinks and dancing at a Hollywood hot spot – but the self-described “jeans and tank top kind of girl” likes a sports bar even better, and she’s no stranger to cold beer, hot wings and a game of air hockey. While popular with the guys, Miranda is single, and she likes variety in her love life. “I like to hang out with new people – trying new restaurants, going to new clubs and lounges. I don’t have a type, but I like a man who’s smart, ambitious and confident. And I like to feel protected – when a guy puts his jacket around my shoulders, it melts my heart.”
From the pages of a bridal catalogue to the pages of Playboy, Miranda has come a long way. “Playboy is iconic,” says Miranda. “So many beautiful and talented women have been featured in the magazine and on the website. Why wouldn’t I want to be a part of that? I get to work with great photographers, shoot in different locations and meet new people. I love the whole experience.”

Playboy Cybergirl Mandie Sue is a bartender from Normal, Illinois – and despite the name, she’s anything but normal. All natural, she has blue eyes, dark brown hair and an irresistible smile that earns her great tips at the bar. You’ve seen her on Playboy before – she was Coed of the Week in May 2010, and appeared in our Nude Car Wash, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Coed House Party pictorials. Now she’s back and better than ever as a Cybergirl. “I was born and raised in Normal,” says Mandie, “and I’m an Illinois girl through and through. My parents raised me to do things most girls don’t do – they took me camping, fishing, and hiking, and my grandfather taught me to build things. I cut up my own bait, and I can skin a duck about as fast as I can filet a fish.” She works nights at a popular sports bar, and in her free time, she likes to get a beer, a bite and a watch Cubs game – or spend the night in with her boyfriend. “He’s always there for me, and we share everything with each other,” she says. “I like an outdoorsman with a little facial hair. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty.”

Ashley Doris has been announced as the Playboy Playmate for March 2013, and curiously she has been added today in Playboy as an Amateur… odd.. but hey sneak peak of a stunning new Playboy Playmate!
Get off to a good start with our Miss March 2013 Ashley Doris. She’s all natural, with long, dark hair and deep brown eyes. “I’m from West Hartford, Connecticut,” she says. “I work as a florist, and I model on the side. I would describe my personality as creative – I studied ballet for fifteen years.” We met Ashley in Las Vegas – she was on vacation, and we had a casting call in her hotel. “My friend and I were waiting for an elevator, and we were noticed by a casting agent,” says Ashley. “I went in for a test shoot, and three weeks later, I was booked.” This was her first time posing nude, but she made herself right at home. We had her pegged as an Amateur, but Hef took one look at her photos and knew he’d found his March Playmate. “I had a great time at my shoot,” she says. “The house we shot in was perfect, and had one of the best views I’d ever seen. I loved my hair and makeup, and I loved the clothes – while I was wearing them, I mean.” When she’s not working, Ashley spends time with her friends – talking and laughing with the girls, going to dinner or a movie – or she works in her garden, where she raises her own flowers. She’s a great cook, too, and can whip up a three-course meal without batting an eye. “I don’t like rules or boundaries, so I’m happy being single,” she says, “but when I go on a date with a guy, I want to be treated with respect. That’s what separates the men from the boys.”

Meet Playboy Cybergirl Jessie Ann, from Valley Springs, California. She has blonde hair, green eyes and an elaborate koi tattoo on her side. “I was raised a close family,” she says. “I was taught right from wrong – that I should treat people the way I want to be treated, and that I shouldn’t pass judgment, lest I be judged.” She took those lessons to heart – she’s a full-time nursing student and licensed pharmacy technician, and her primary interest is good patient care. On a day-to-day basis, she’s casual – “I’m a jeans and Vans kind of girl,” she says – and she spends a lot of time at home, reading and baking cookies. But she loves a night out, too, and she’ll put on a hot outfit and five-inch heels for the occasion. She’s single, and she’s into guys who are strong and confident. “I’m the dominant one in a relationship, but I still believe in more traditional dynamics,” she says.
Jessie is new to modeling, and this is her first time posing for Playboy. “I had some nude photos taken at a private studio,” she explains, “and the photographer was a friend of Josh Ryan’s. He passed them along, and I guess Josh liked what he saw.” She was asked to do a test shoot, and a few months later, she was booked. “I’ve always wanted to do Playboy,” she says. “I didn’t have any modeling experience, and I was nervous at first – but I had already met Josh and his crew, and they made me feel very comfortable on set.” Now that she’s got her feet wet, Jessie can’t wait to work with Playboy again. “I’m proud of my body,” she says. “Why not share it with the world?”

If you’re familiar with the bar scene in Huntington Beach, California, you may have already met Playboy Cybergirl Elena Romanova, who works nights as a bartender. Born and raised in Melitopol, Ukraine – an intercultural city best known for its fresh fruit and honey – Elena came to America to pursue a career as a model. With ice blue eyes, raven hair and classic proportions, this Slavic princess is sure to succeed.
She was an art student in Russia, where she honed her talent for drawing and nurtured an interest in dance. In America, she was a finalist for Maxim’s Hometown Hotties 2011 competition, and has done promotional modeling for Lowrider Magazine and a few calendars. But she had her sights set a lot higher than that. “I’ve always wanted to be in Playboy because it sets a standard of beauty,” she explains. “I’m proud to be a part of that.”
“I’m outgoing,” says Elena. “I love to go out drinking with the guys – after all, I am a bartender. I don’t really hang out with girls.” It won’t surprise you to know that a strong, independent girl like Elena is single – or that she likes it that way. “I don’t have to deal with another person’s problems,” she says. “But I love guys with a nice chest and arms. And respect is very important. Where I grew up, that’s what men are like, and that’s what I expect.”
Q&A with Elena Romanova
Playboy: What do you do when you’re not modeling?
I’m a bartender.
Playboy: What is your favorite kind of beer and why?
The place I work sells beer only. Probably a Dutch wheat beer or short tap, anything that has an orange flavor to it. Wheat beer is my favorite.
Playboy: Where did you grow up?
I was born in Ukraine and lived there for 14 years and then moved to Russia and lived there for five years. I have dual citizenship. I live in the States now and I’ve been here for five years; I love it. I’m so glad to be here because there’s a lot of freedom to make money, no matter if you come from a poor family or if you have an education there’s still a possibility to make money. In Russia it’s completely different. So that’s what I like about America the most; it’s the land of opportunity. Everyone has an opportunity to make something out of themselves.
Playboy: What inspired you to become a Cyber Girl?
I’ve always wanted to work with Playboy. Once I got a chance I went to casting and that’s how it started.
Playboy: Do you have any other secret talents?
I went to art school; I know how to draw and paint. I haven’t done it for a while, but I’m pretty sure if I picked it up again it would click. I was always more into dance, but my parents took me to art school instead.
Playboy: What are your goals for this fall?
There are so many things. Keep modeling; hopefully get a test shoot for Playmate.
Playboy: Do you model outside of Playboy?
I’ve done a lot lately; I’ve started taking modeling seriously. I was on the cover of Street Chopper Magazine recently. I do mostly glamour and car modeling, bikini or lingerie.
Playboy: You work around cars often; what is your dream car?
I have two dream cars. One is a Mercedes CL and the other is a Bentley Continental GT. Both are very classy cars with smooth lines, totally matches my style!
Playboy: What attributes are you most proud of physically?
My butt and my legs. I’m only 5’3” but my legs are long so I photograph much taller than I really am.
Playboy: You’ve got a killer body. How do you keep in such great shape?
I do aerial arts, which is aerial acrobatics, like Cirque du Soleil — that’s what keeps me in shape. I started doing it in March and have done a few shows with my school at different art festivals or parks. It’s a lot of fun.
Playboy: What has been your biggest accomplishment in your life to date?
I met Hugh Hefner last weekend — I always wanted to meet him; it was a great experience. I went to Fun in the Sun this past Sunday and I got to meet him. It was slow, usually there are a lot of girls but there were only ten that day. I got to meet a lot of cool people. Hugh Hefner was quiet, polite and always smiling.
Playboy: Do you have a favorite Playmate?
Dasha Astafieva. She was a Ukrainian girl that posed in Playboy’s 55th Anniversary edition in January 2009. She was gorgeous. That’s what a Playmate should be; she was perfect.
Playboy: What’s the best dating advice you can give to our male readers?
Don’t try too hard. Don’t try to impress a girl from the get-go by telling her how much money you have, how many houses you’ve got. It’s kind of annoying. When it happens to me it feels like they’re trying to buy me. Be yourself; not everyone is impressed by money.

Quiet on the set – it’s star-quality Playboy Cybergirl Kendall Rayanne. With chestnut hair, hazel eyes and a generous bust, she was featured in several Special Editions pictorials – College Girls, Lingerie, Voluptuous Vixens and Girl Next Door – and was so popular that we made her Coed of the Week in August 2011, and a Playboy Cybergirl in November 2012.
“I grew up Hesperia, California,” says Kendall. “It’s a secluded community in the Mojave Desert. My family was supportive, and I was involved in student council and intramural sports in high school. It taught me to be responsible and driven toward success.” She’s as busy now as she was in high school – she studies film and media production at Mesa Community College in Arizona, and she works three jobs to support herself. “During the week, I’m an airbrush technician at a tanning salon, and cocktail waitress at a restaurant,” she says, “and on the weekends I’m a bottle service hostess at a club. When I finish my degree, I want to work in the Hollywood film industry.”
Kendall still finds time to hang with her friends. With the guys she likes a beer at the bar, and with the girls she likes a glass of wine, a mani-pedi and reality show on E! – The Girls Next Door, for example. “I watched it religiously in high school,” she says, “And it made me want to be a Playboy model. The girls in the magazine and on the show are beautiful, and they inspired me to work with one of the top modeling agencies in the world.”
“I’m single, and I don’t have to justify myself to anyone else,” says Kendall. “I travel a lot, and I meet new people all the time – and between that, three jobs, an education and a social life, I don’t have time for a relationship.” That said, her ideal guy is fit, confident, and most importantly, understanding. “He should know how to give – and take – good advice,” she says.

Meet high-energy Playboy Amateur Hunter McCloud, a model based in Marina del Rey, California. She’s small – 5’2” and about a hundred pounds – and all natural, with blonde hair, green eyes and a positive attitude. “I grew up in Sequim, Washington,” she says. “It’s a small town, but it’s a big part of who I am. I moved to Southern California about four years ago, and Marina del Rey is very different from Sequim – for one thing, it almost never rains. But I still have friends in Washington, and I talk to my family every day – so even in La-La Land, I manage to stay grounded.”
Hunter is a full time model, and her work keeps her busy. “I’m short, so I can’t do runway,” she explains, “but I’m height-weight proportionate, so I get away with a lot of catalogue work.” She’s been with a couple of different agencies, but right now she’s self-represented, and highly motivated to succeed. “Every day I’m hustlin’,” she jokes. “I don’t have an agent, so if I don’t book my jobs, no one is going to book them for me.” When Hunter’s not working, she’s playing outside – she loves hiking, biking, beach cruising and jogging with the girls. “You name it, I do it,” she says, laughing.
This is Hunter’s first time posing nude, and she says that the overall experience was positive. “You only live once,” she says, laughing. “But no, seriously – Jared Ryder and his crew were so awesome. They made me feel right at home, and I had a great time on the set.” Now that she’s a Playboy model, Hunter is fielding a ton of male attention – but she’s a small-town girl at heart, and she prefers to be in a long-term relationship. “The dating scene in Los Angeles is tough,” she says. “Guys are cocky, and it’s hard to make a genuine connection. When I first moved here, a guy asked me out on a date, and I said no. He told me that I would never get work in LA.” Looks like Hunter proved him wrong.

Karina Marie is the Playboy Playmate for January 2013. Imagine the ultimate ski trip – on the sun-kissed slopes of Chamonix. Now imagine the ski bunny who would accompany you. Karina Marie is an ace in her ski boots, but she is even better apres – after taking them off. “I am in my heart a cozy girl,” says the East London native. “I love to travel and ski, but I get bored easily, and then I’m ready to go back to my cabin, pour lychee martini, light a fire and chill out on a bearskin rug.” Preferably au naturel. “I love fashion, and I’m a dangerous shopper, but I don’t like wearing clothes at home,” Karina says. “I like to kick back and wear, like, a pair of knickers. It makes me feel cozy and sexy.”
Sexy is something she knows mountains about. Leveraging British reality-TV notoriety at the age of 16 on The Salon, she landed her first magazine cover at 17. Now she has a slew of TV commercials under her belt, plus shoots in Elle, GQ and Arena magazines. “Being in front of a camera gives me a buzz,” says Miss January, who will celebrate her month by ringing in the New Year in style. And her Playboy shoot? “Since I love winter but don;t like wearing clothes, I felt at home during the shoot. I started off I’m lingerie and a vintage mink, then got more naked. The only thing that would have made it better would be if God had dropped a man out of the sky for me.” And what would she have said to the lucky bloke? “Happy New Year, of course!”

Go crazy with Playboy Cybergirl Ashlee Lynn. She’s tall – 5’8” – and slender, with long black hair, brown eyes and a tattoo on her side that reads bellissima pazza – Italian for ‘crazy beautiful’. She’s from Mullica Hill, a small town in south Jersey, where she works as a technician in a plastic surgeon’s office. “A lot of people think I’m stuck up,” she says, “but I’m really sweet and down to earth. My mom raised me with a good head on my shoulders.” We get where she’s coming from – Ashlee’s D cups could throw any girl off her A game. “I’m from Jersey, and I’m not shy about it,” she says. “I dress up for work, but when I get home I veg out on the couch in a pair of sweats.”
When she’s not in the operating room, Ashlee likes to spend time with her friends. On one hand, she’s one of the guys – she loves pizza, Sunday night football and has a tab at the local bar. On the other, she’s one of the girls, and she lives for lunch dates, shopping trips and days at the beach. “I eat like a guy,” she admits, “but my stomach is flat and toned. I must have a good metabolism.” You’d think she had to diet and exercise for that body – but like most things, Ashlee does it with style and ease. “Playboy is actually my first modeling job,” she says. “I’ve always wanted to do it. There’s something so sexy about Playboy, and the nudity is done so tastefully.”
