First off you are a beautiful model. You are already doing nudes and as others have said the only difference between what you are doing now and what you will do for penthouse is open leg pussy shots and more sexually suggestive poses like on all fours doggy style.

The cons are that some people will frown on this including even some friends and family. Some people will think you are easy and have lose morals. Some men will try to use you for sex and reject you for a long term girl friend and many men will not consider you as marrying material. In a nutshell you will be judged by a large segment of the population as unsavory. As a stripper I have experienced all of these things in my life but I don't let others limit me in my life and I do what I like regardless of what others think.

I personally see nothing wrong with modeling nude or for penthouse. You get paid, you get published, and it will jump start your career as an erotic model. it would be a fun experience and in 50 years you can pull out the old mag and check yourself out.

I have a few questions:

1)  Were you contacted, directly, by the publishers of Penthouse or were you contacted by a photographer, who has shot for them and who indicated that he wants to shoot you, for submission to the magazine?

Exactly. I wonder what the final outcome was on this year old thread? wink LOL!

I have gotten several offers to do Penthouse... I've always been on the fence about it but haven't been too sure yet. Can anyone offer me a list of pros and cons? I also know, IF I do Penthouse I will get porn offers which I def. don't want to do. What are your thoughts? Thanks a million!!

I would make myself a promise,  and that is not to be drawn into  Porn.. 
Not that I object to Porn,  But you will never be sorry to have stayed with the top market..  I can name some good markets,  and not use all my fingers on my left hand...

If you aren't comfortable, don't do it!

Whatever your comfort level, whether it's lingerie or B/G, if you cross that line you risk feeling like you betrayed yourself. Like your self-respect is worth less to you than a few bucks.

yes do it - you're on this site showing your rig for free so.....  It's also a good stepping stone into porn if that's the way you want to go

My initial response is hell yes.

On a few seconds reflection I guess I should add...What are you looking to do in the rest of your modeling career.  Would it be beneficial to be able to say that you were Penthouse published?  Would that lead to more paying/higher paying jobs?  If so, hell yes.  If not, I guess I would answer no.  Can't believe I said that.  Stupic ethics class in college.

One of my Favorite all time Models Julie Strain, danced that fence line as fine as anyone could between porn and art. I would say that she managed to exploit Penthouse for her career needs.

So if you feel your head is screwed on straight and you know what career path you what, you should be fine.

The pros and cons are different for each individual. What I would consider a con of posing for penthouse may not bother you in the least bit.

Ask yourself, not complete strangers who dont know anything about you, your comfort levels, your career goals, your life goals, etc.

Another perfect answer.
