My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” Has Susan Lynn Kiger! She Was Playboy’s First X-Rated Playmate!

Susan Lynn Kiger’s Incredibly Provocative Career!

I scour the internet for stories of some of the greatest Cult Movie Queens, and this edition of my “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” has the story of a Playboy Playmate who was the first ever X-rated Playmate!

Called “strikingly sexy and shapely” on a fan website, Susan Lynn Kiger was born on November 16, 1953 in Pasadena, California.

She has that “Southern California” look to be sure, and that beauty took her far – in fact:

Further than any Playboy Playmate had ever gone!

Susan’s X-rated Record!

Most fans know Kiger as a hugely popular Playboy Playmate – and with photos like these it’s easy to see why:

Susan’s X-Rated Debut!

Here’s where the story gets interesting: the year before she became a Playboy Playmate, Susan made a movie: an X-rated movie!

That means that Susan holds the distinction of being the first Playmate to be featured in an “adult” film prior to posing for the magazine!

The Actress appeared in several great cult films in her career, but it was her debut in the 1976 X-rated outing “Deadly Love” that was controversial – there is very little known about this movie, except that it was also known as “Hot Nasties”…

There are shots online that show her performing oral sex, supposedly from that film…I can’t find any information about the film at all – but the film was rated “X”, and this was before she became the Playmate of the Month in the January, 1977 issue of “Playboy.”

Beyond that notorious debut, Kiger went on to act in a handful of films and TV shows.

Her most memorable movie roles are Sorority Sister Honey Shayne in the raucous 1979 comedy “H.O.T.S.”

She also appeared in this raucous sequel:

As you can see, these cult films made good use of all of Susan’s natural assets, but she also had a real “girl next door” vibe as well:

And Susan played a blue-skinned alien prostitute in the sci-fi spoof “Galaxina” in 1980:

That film starred Dorothy Stratten…I will be paying homage to her in a few weeks.

Kiger also starred in the 1982 horror film “Death Screams.”

That was it for acting: Susan was in some fun cult gems, but she left acting at that point – and will always be known as the first X-rated Playmate!

According to an online database, Susan Kiger now lives in Southern California and works as a hair stylist.

Thanks Susan for such a terrific career!

Many legendary Playmates like Kiger had terrific careers – let’s not forget Jeane Manson:

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

I’ve also shared stories that didn’t turn out as well:

Angela Aames worked with Tom Hanks, and starred in a number of great films and TV shows:

Her death at an early age was shocking – you can click here to read her story:

  1. And all this time I thought Teri Weigel was the first X-Rated Playmate!


    • I’m taking this info from Playboy’s bio info, but I will check Teri out as well! They seem to have a lot of “firsts” and the difference between some of them is RAZOR THIN…thanks for commenting and for the tip!


      • I think you’re right, just by the years. Teri was mid-80s and Susan was early to mid seventies, so Susan probably was the first to cross the X line. I just never really knew her story until now, but when Weigel did porn, and then even worked at the Nevada brothels, she probably SEEMED like the first.
