Melodye Prentiss may be the second Playmate to show her pubic hair. The distinction of being first is most commonly attributed to Liv Lindeland Miss January 1971 although, Marguerite Empey's February 1956 pictorial includes an underwater photo which clearly shows her pubic hair, making her in fact the first.
Kecia Nyman is most often seen on the cover of Cosmo, Harper's and Vogue.
Paul Newman is interviewed again for the April 1983 issue.
