A Provocative “Playboy First” From Playmate Liv Lindeland! My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” Celebrates Her Groundbreaking Pictorial!

“If one has an attractive body it should not be hidden.”

And with that, time to celebrate the career of Liv Lindeland!

Blonde bombshell Liv Lindeland was born on December 7, 1945 in Norway. Her first name means “life ” in Norwegian, and what a great life she’s had!

Liv moved to the United States in 1965 and immediately got work as a fashion model…she then movies to Los Angeles in 1969 – where fame was waiting…

Liv’s Groundbreaking Playboy Photo Shoot!

Liv was chosen as the Playmate of the Month in January 1971.

Her photo spread was groundbreaking: you see, Liv was the FIRST Playmate to show pubic hair in a pictorial!

Hard to imagine now what a big deal that was, but it changed men’s magazines forever!

Liv was also named Playmate of the Year in 1972.

Liv did a follow-up pictorial called “Playmates Forever!” in the December 1979 issue of “Playboy.” She was very open and honest about herself – and her body.

As she said, when asked why she posed for Playboy:

“Because if one has an attractive body it should not be hidden.”

And who can Argie with that?

Liv ended up working in film and TV, but never to any large degree.

She had ten acting credits – mostly small roles, but a few were in classic 70’s cult films like this:

“Dirty O’Neil: The Love Life Of A Cop!”

What a title!

Listen to how an online site described the plot:

“A police officer has very little work as there is virtually no crime in his small California town…until three hoodlums appear and rape a young woman.”

Check out the classic trailer:

Well, she sure made an impression!

And let’s not forget Jeane Manson appeared in this film as well:

Miss August 1974 went on to act AND became a very successful singer as well!

I saw that “Dirty O’Neil” is now on Amazon Prime so I’m going to check it out!

After a string of small roles, Liv disappeared from the credits until more than a dozen years later, when she showed up in this 80’s action gem:

“Picasso Trigger”

Yes, she scored a credit in this 1988 Andy Sidaris action film…which also starred Dona Speir:

Speir starred as an empowered female in a number of great films, and you can see them all by clicking on my story here:

As for Liv, in the wake of her Playmate stint see eventually became a talent agent! So, she stayed in the business, just moved behind the scenes…

She wasn’t the only Actress who found success beyond cult film:

Kristine DeBell had a terrific career, but will perhaps always be remembered for her role in the X-rated “Alice In Wonderland” – check out the movie trailer and more by clicking on my story here:

  1. I still remember digging out the Playboy with Liv in it from my dad’s hidden stash. That glimpse of pubic hair did change things for this young boy. Between her and Claudia Jennings, I kept very busy.
