The Sexy “Sting” Of Marilyn Lange! Celebrating This “Almost Soccer Star!”

Celebrating Marilyn Lange’s Sexy “Sting!”

My “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” is coming to a close, but here’s a fascinating story of a popular Model who achieved a unique distinction!

Here’s the short career of a Playboy Playmate who could have been a major league sports star!

Marilyn Lange was born in Westfield, New Jersey, on January 12, 1952.

She graduated from Westfield High School in 1970.

Just one month later, she married a classmate from that same high school, Jeff Pelosi, who also was the drummer in the 1960s rock band The Critters, who had the hit “Younger Girl”.

Yes, indeed.

Lange and Pelosi were apparently divorced just a few years later, as the text of her original appearance in Playboy has her “married at 18 to a member of a popular east coast rock band …. the marriage didn’t last and she has no plans to try matrimony again”.

Well, regardless of her past marital status, Lange was featured in the magazine as “Miss May 1974″…and an even bigger accede was soon to follow.

Marilyn’s 1975 Playmate Of The Year!

In 1975, the magazine chose her as the Playmate Of The Year!

In those days, the honor was a ticket to stardom – and in this case, it was almost a ticket to the big leagues!

Marilyn Shows Off Her “Sting!”

At that time, she lived in Hawaii and played soccer. Apparently, she was pretty good!

As a publicity stunt, the Chicago Sting of the men’s North American Soccer League selected her in the final round of the 1976 draft!

Thats a hilarious stunt to get some attention, but as I said, she was apparently a good player and it would have been fun to see her actually play!

By the way, while she never played for them, according to a Playboy website, she did work in their promotions department for awhile – so she was part of the “Sing” in that way at least!

Unfortunately, even with that great bit of trivia, not much else is known about her.

As noted online: Marilyn disappeared from the public spotlight after completing her contractual obligations to Playboy.

While she has understandably developed a cult following, there isn’t much information out there about her life post-Playboy…

Perhaps this quote from her at the time explains why she didn’t pursue more in the field:

“I find some of today’s sexually explicit entertainment to be a bit over the top. I kind of like the mystique sex used to have, it’s nice when there’s a little room for the imagination to work.” 

Bravo to Marilyn Lange, 1975 Playmate of The Year – terrific photos and spirit!

  1. In my opinion, one of the most beautiful and impressive Playmates ever. She was most deserving of the Playmate Of The Year title. It’s sad that there are many Playmates that simply fade away and disappear once they appear in the magazine and fulfill their commitments to Playboy. I hope that Marilyn is still alive and wherever she may be, that she is happy in life.


  2. One of the all time greatest and sexiest PMOY of all time! She ranks in my top 3 list of all time sexiest playmates along with Janet Lupo and Karen Price. The instant i saw Marilyn’s photo for the first time, i was infatuated with her and still am to this day. Several years back, someone posted a recent photo on Yahoo of Marilyn at some country club function, i believe, somewhere in Colorado and she still looked great. She did re-marry again and seem to be living a happy and private life. I wish i still had those photos, but that was a couple of dead hard drive’s ago. Can you imagine how ticket sales would have skyrocket just because her admirers would want to watch her bounce up and down running back and forth on the soccer field!! Some memories just never die and this includes Marilyn’s absolute beauty


  3. Wow! What a figure! She was a total knockout, John. I would have been happy to marry her!
    John Sebastian wrote ‘Younger Girl’, and I prefer his version with The Lovin’ Spoonful.
    Best wishes, Pete.
