Naked Lady of the Week: Tawnee Stone

If you remember Tawnee Stone you’re either a male born before 1978 or just a congenital pervert — though of course the two categories aren’t mutually exclusive.

Tawnee, whose official title seems to be “Internet Sensation,” was one of the first nude models to have a website devoted entirely to her. That website still exists, proving that it’s possible to remain 19 forever.

The name “Tawnee Stone” is actually a registered trademark of the Lightspeed Media Corporation.

That reminds me: This guy I know once asked me where I went to school. When I told him I’d attended Lightspeed University, he took a second to process the comment, then nearly spit out the beer he was drinking. True story.

Being a trademarked product must be weird for the real person inhabiting Tawnee. Or do you suppose she gets a kick out of it? Either way, she must have found it odd when, in 2010, Lightspeed’s founder announced that Tawnee had passed away in a car accident. It was a joke: he’d merely killed off the fictional character named Tawnee Stone. But the echo of the announcement rang through the darker corners of the internet with the persistence of a particularly dank image macro of Harambe.

As a model Tawnee was somewhat dull. And yet the compact-but-curvaceous frame, the big brown eyes, and the dependably reproducible smile all somehow amounted to something unique, even memorable. I saw one internet commenter compare her to a cardboard cutout. There’s something to that characterization. She had the indelible quality of a — err — trademarked product.

Nudity below. Have a great weekend.

    Fascinating stuff, there is an entire world of this, with people having academic discussions over what kind of art direction/photography a particular actress needs to bring out her best- who would have thought?

  2. Is anything known about the actual girl in the “Tawnee Stone” pix? Or what’s become of her in the years since?

      There is some info at the Peachy Forum thread I posted the link to. Sounds like she got married and stopped posing. Her real name is mentioned in the Wikipedia entry.

        I do know the “real Tawnee Stone,” but of course ppl won’t believe me. She hasn’t modeled like that for 15 years. I was a little girl when she stopped modeling. I knew her for a long time before I saw her pic on the Internet and learned she modeled as Tawnee. I’ve gotten 4 or 5 fake Tawnee Stones removed from Facebook. šŸ™‚

        Great story. So did you ever go back and ask her about her modeling?

    Fabrizio del Wrongo yes I did. She said that Steve Loveshade who took the photos with another guy was nice. She said sometimes she felt embarrassed, even with the other girls. That’s why the only guy she had sex with was her boyfriend. She said he was really embarrassed too!
