As far as I can tell, Candis Loving is her authentic, bestowed-at-birth name, and not a cheeky, Bond-inspired jape. Well, it’s a name that suits her just fine. Or maybe she suits the name?
In 1979, Loving was specially chosen by “Playboy” as the publication’s 25th-anniversary Playmate. It’s not hard to understand why: Her pretty-pretty, cosmetics-model face and super-bodacious bod presented a combo favored by the publication toward the end of the ’70s.
According to this informative article, Candy was encouraged to audition for “Playboy” by her then husband, a tragically deluded man who was, predictably, kicked to the curb by Candy once she moved to Hollywood and into the masturbation fantasies of men from Sicily to Sheboygan. There is a certain breed of man who, being proud of the woman he’s conquered, wants to show her off to the world. It never seems to work out for them.
She’s from Oklahoma. Are people still from Oklahoma? Some fun comments from former classmates, etc. here.
Glamorous, tan-lined nudity below. Enjoy the start of summer.
I remember her. One of the greats!
