Venus by Request: Priscilla Wright

Priscilla shows us her tiny, tiny waist

CK Dexter-Haven has requested the March 1966 pictorial featuring Playmate Priscilla Wright. Priscilla was just nineteen when photographed by Mario Casilli (1931-2002) who shot 57 Playmates in total; in other words nearly 10% of them!. Much of the text, and indeed the pictorial, concentrated on the fact that she was a keen golfer. Typically, for Playboy in this period, she is dressed in all of her pictures save one plus her centrefold. It is, perhaps, no wonder that Penthouse started to eat into Playboy's market in the sixties.

No, its not a golfing magazine, it really is Playboy

She became a Bunny after her centrefold appearance and was featured in the Bunnies of Hollywood feature in December 1967. Fortunately, we have some photographs of her not playing golf.

From the December 1967 Bunnies of Hollywood feature

Very sixties hair!

At the time she was a very petite 5'2" tall and a very trim 34-19-35. Most notable, of course, are her extreme tan lines, something which Agent DVD appreciates. Agent Triple P is not such a fan of this, however: he prefers his women the same colour all over, not looking like saddleback pigs!

Now that is an houglass figure!

Lovely smile!

Lovely tummy!

Lovely effect of gravity!

We are listening to Cy Coleman as we put this together. Coleman (1929-2004), of course, composed Playboy's Theme which was used for Playboy's TV shows. In 1966, the year of Priscilla's pictorial, he was nominated for a Tony Award for his musical Sweet Charity which is currently enjoying a successful run here in London starring the rather splendid Tamzin Outhwaite; much missed from one of Triple P's favourite TV series Hotel Babylon.
