Victoria Valentino [1],[2],[3]: I was a Playboy centerfold. My experience shows why ending nudity in the magazine is a good thing.

This is an opportunity to return the centerfold model to its earlier glamour.

I have experienced both the benefits and downsides of being a sex symbol. As a girl, I studied ballet and piano and eventually majored in musical theatre at the American Theatre Wing with hopes of becoming a serious actress in New York. Shakespeare and Rodgers and Hammerstein were my passion. Becoming a Playmate changed the trajectory of my life. Theatrical agents and casting directors didn’t see me as a serious actress after my Playboy debut. Instead, my agent told me to “just stand there and look pretty. Don’t say anything intelligent and spoil it.” Still, it is difficult to imagine the magazine that rose to fame on the beauties in the trifold without the iconic women at its center. The centerfold has always been the first thing Playboy subscribers turn to, savor, analyze, treasure and hang on the wall. The centerfold should always be at the heart of Playboy. But it’s time to change her image. By eliminating nudity, Playboy can transform the Playmate into something that uplifts the woman, dignifies her, and puts her on a pedestal that makes her more self-empowered. The centerfold doesn’t need to be nude to be iconic. Instead, she can be glamorous, elegant, intellectual – a multifaceted, well integrated, self-actualized woman.
