Celebrating 70’s Sex Kitten Daina House!
Travels through cult cinema invariably lead me to an Actress who appeared in a number of “drive-in” movies, but I don’t know anything about her – and that was the case with Daina!
She was born Daina Louis House on December 30, 1954 in Dallas, Texas.
There’s not much bio information about her growing up, so for the sake of the story, let’s just assume she did in Texas and had a great childhood.
There’s a reason she made my “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” of course. As you can imagine from this photo, Playboy came calling – which of course they did!
She was chosen as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in January 1976. Daina was 21 when she became a Playmate.
One of the most interesting photos I found had her at one of Hef’s Playboy Mansion parties, surrounded by celebrities and Hefner himself:
She had a small role in the exploitation film “Checkered Flag Or Crash” in 1977.
Look at that cast!
She also appeared alongside legendary Actor Henry Fonda in “The Great Smoky Roadblock” – seems she liked “hicksploitation” films!
So did Rene bond – see her wildest ones here!
As for Daina, she appeared in a film with a wilder title than the movie delivered:
“Every Girl Should Have One” in 1978 also starred Zsa Zsa Gabor! Hmmm…in case you were wondering, here’s what IMDB.com says:
“A million dollar diamond theft involving unlikely thieves, zany lovers and a fast talking maid sets this comedy caper zooming from sophisticated discos to exciting chase scenes!”
Daina ended up appearing in a lot of mainstream TV shows like “The New Mike Hammer”, “Starsky & Hutch” and “The Love Boat II”.
After her short run in entertainment, she took an interesting career turn – her day of posing for pictorials like this were about to end!
Daina became an ordained, licensed Foursquare Minister!
She became part of The Church On The Way in Van Nuys, California. Daina also does live stream and radio for the church.
Bravo to her on the new career path! She reminds me of other Playmates who went on to fascinating careers:
Playmate Lisa Welch went from Centerfold to Cabernet!

And how about this “Card Shark?”
Ann Pennington ended up on a long-running daytime game show – see her wild Playboy pictorial and more here:
And let’s not forget Rebecca Armstrong – the “Bodybuilding Playmate!”
She was a stunning Playmate who got into a very unusual profession – read all about her transformation by clicking here:
