The XXX-Factor: Sybil Danning in Playboy, August 1983

One of the great things about Blogspot are the "traffic sources" stats on what search items brings readers to our blog.  Running a close third behind Boyka (Scott Adkins' buff villain-turned-hero in the UNDISPUTED sequels) and Linda Blair (a certain OUI pictorial pops up) is 80s action/b-movie cult queen Sybil Danning.  It is almost like sex sells or something.  Danning is definitely a favorite around these parts and, like most folks, we got introduced to her through her Sybil Danning's Adventure Videos.  She was like the Elvira of the action scene, introducing some great (and not-so-great) movies with terrible puns and incredible skimpy outfits.  We were in love.  As if a hot lady and z-grade action weren't enough, Danning also had her own acting career and the Austria-born actress had no qualms getting nude.  Hell, she even refined the art of being nude without being nude.

Anyway, long story short, we obviously weren't the only ones smitten with Miss Danning's charms and we're doing this post to satiate all of the like minded folks typed "Sybil Danning + nude + Playboy" into Google every five minutes.  Below is her spread for Hugh Hefner's seminal nudie mag that appeared in August 1983.  And for you Tom types out there, we've also included the text from the article about her.  It begins with her kicking out her boyfriend (yay!) and then talking about some of her films (she even bags on Lou Ferrigno).  Fans of "never got made" stuff will be interested in reading about BLACK DIAMOND, her planned female James Bond film.  It never got before cameras, although a comic book of it did get released.  Behold the power of Danning (click to enlarge, but try not to break your computer screen)!

I love your sense of humor. Video Junkie is the best blog out there. I've been on a bit of a Danning kick recently and forgot I have this issue of Playboy. Thanks for giving me a reason to dig it out of the closet.

I see she's done a number of pictorials in OUI, HIGH SOCIETY and GALLERY. Looks like I need to hit eBay.
