Ida Ljungqvist is First-Ever African Playmate of the Year


When is the last time that you looked at Playboy magazine? I have to admit that I don't recall seeing one for at least the past 20 years. I may have to head out to a bookstand to see if I can find a current issue. It turns out that Hugh Hefner and his crew selected a women from Africa as Playmate of the Year for the first time in a half-century.

Ida Ljungqvist, last year's Miss March, is now the 2009 Playmate of the Year. This 27-year old beauty wins over $100,000 in cash and prizes.

I wonder if Sis. Ljungqvist ~lurks~ here as a villager?

[NOTE: Drumbeats from TransGriot correctly note that the first Black Playmate of the Year was Renee Tennison (Miss November 1989).]

This is hardly an accomplishment. Thousands of white men oogling over a black woman's body - not something to be proud of.

Deidra - At least she is being paid for the privilege. $100k prize for taking some photos seems like a nice enducement...

Renee Tenison was the first Black playmate of the year in 1990
