I've really enjoyed reading about what you've done with yourself from college, right up to now. I also think your networking/marketing prowess is what pisses off your detractors most. YouTube? A stroke of genius!!! They'll make a movie about you eventually! But you already know that right?" Cannazine - Myspace friend

By Allison Margolin

I love "Girls Next Door,” the reality show about Hugh Hefner and his three girlfriends.Some people criticize that, thinking it's superficial or a prurient display of nudity. But as someone who has wanted to be in Playboy before I even understood the word sexuality, the show is a welcome insight into the lives of those who make a career of their sexuality. ....Continued

Hi Allison,
I enjoyed your blog. So much so that I added it to my directory at

My advice to you is to create a feed over at feedburner (just google it) and display the rss icon. That way users can subscribe to your feed and I can enter it into the Juristblogger masterfeed.

Also, a great addition to your site would be a widget we offer. All you do is copy/paste a piece of code you can find at our homepage into your blog's sidebar and voila, continuously updated content from around the blawgosphere. There is even a space for some adsense code to make you some coffee money.

I am the founder of JuristBlogger and the self-described blawgfather. If you have any questions for me, email me at:

Take care.

The problem I have with Playboy is that as a lawyer they would want to shoot you in cliche' lawyerly poses.

I find their photography so predictable and boring but that's their market.

After reading your post I would suggest that you find a good photographer and have some good nudes taken that you can display in your home to close friends.

That way you have more control and the portfolio takes a more personal and honest look at an interesting woman verus the airbrushed naked chick.
