What is it like to work at Playboy

August 12, 2016 on Reddit

Yay! Glad to come across this. * How did you become a model? And then how'd you get to playboy? * Did you get confidence boosts from your photoshoots? For me at least, if I'm able to take an attractive partial nude for my bf I get slightly extatic for a moment, but then I end up hating it for some reason... Edit: Any tips for how to pose for risqu pictures?

I entered a modeling competition at Uni after months of pestering and ended up in FHM magazine. After that I got an agent and my second job (in 2004 ) was for Playboy. I did get a huge amount of confidence from doing photoshoots, it really helped me accept myself although castings were hard as they do the opposite! I think the best thing you can do when posing at home is pretend you are confident. The old adage 'fake it til you make it' does actually work.

What was your most embarrassing moment ever in your career?

Farting really loudly on my first shoot.

How was it working for one of the slimiest and exploitative companies in the world that has no moral compass and uses women like pieces of meat to attract men with no actual content worth actually taking in other than the new hot chick of the month. Also, what was it like working for Playboy?

You must be fun at parties...
August 12, 2016 on Reddit

Favorite celebrity you've met through your career?

Ooh, erm. Lily Allen and Tom Hardy. They both seemed pretty normal. Pharrell was my fave but oh my god he looked like he was carved out of marble he was so gorgeous I couldn't handle it. I kept zoning out. AND he touched my bum. I almost fainted.

I have heard alot of models express that the thing they appreciate the most about nude shoots is the professionalism of the photography team. Have you ever worked with photographers who weren't professional, and/or did a photographer ever hit on you during or after a shoot?

I had one or two shoots starting out that were a bit dodgy. One where the photographer locked me in his car and made me feel really uncomfortable (I managed to run away) and another where the photographer took nude photos while I was getting changed. I was sent on both jobs by the same agent. I think they were getting back-handers.
August 12, 2016 on Reddit

Have you ever experienced pressure to perform sexual acts with producers/photographers/etc. to advance in your career?

Nope, never. I'm sure that kind of stuff does go on but I never witnessed it myself. The most common thing for models was to sleep with their agent for more work, but my agent was a lady!

How does being a British Playboy model differ from being an American one? I guess the circulation is smaller? Do they pay the same for a photoshoot as the US branch does? I know US Playboy Models, often make more money doing promotional work ( Opening Car Dealerships, Appearing at night clubs,,,,) is that the same thing for the British PM models?

There isn't a British Playboy, I am British. I modelled for the American magazines/website and the pay was pretty average if I remember correctly.

What was the conversation like with your parents/family/friends when you told them you were posing for Playboy? Also, what is the mansion like?

I don't think I told them! Haha. I think in general my modelling upset my Dad as it was quite public and he didn't like it that his friends could google me. My Mum just thought it was funny. I never actually went to the mansion, I worked for Playboy mainly in the UK so it was never a thing although I did meet Hef a couple of times and was a bunny at his 80th birthday party in London.

* What was the best bit of advice you've been given? * What preconceptions about society did you lose during your time as a model? * Are you happy with the way your life has turned out so far? * What's your favourite pizza topping?

"Work hard and be nice to people." I had a really long career as a model and I owe a lot of it to being easy and fun to work with (for the most part). I was certainly never the best looking or the most popular but I was always a grafter! Nowadays my life is a lot quieter, but I'm a lot happier for sure. Biggest preconception? Hmm... well I think when you are in that world people think you are having the bestest time, but I suffered with depression a lot and was quite lonely. The same could be said for a lot of the celebrities I interviewed too I guess. Favourite pizza topping is a condiment... that Frank's chilli sauce is amazing
