Hi Albert! I am surprised Playboy gets many critics on the west coast... we get a lot of that here in Texas!
I posed for Playboy for a couple of reasons. First, I love the female body. It's gorgeous and I don't know why some people are uncomfortable with it. I'm not sure why so many people in this country are so uncomfortable with nudity in general... it's perfectly natural and the Europeans seem to have that figured out! Because I love the female body, I like showing it off I am very comfortable with myself. Second, I am a very sexual person. It makes me feel very sexy and confident to pose nude and have people enjoy my pics. I think when you are self-confident and love yourself, you want to show it off.
Hope this helps!
Why I Pose...Dana Applegate
Dana Applegate first came to Playboy in 2006 as the Co-ed of the Week for July, 20, representing Texas Tech University. Then she came back to shoot for the Playboy Girls Network as a part of Playboy's Sexy Wives. I'm happy that she let me share her thoughts on why she posed for Playboy!
