When I ask you to think of a model from Penthouse magazine, you probably picture a 120-pound blonde woman who may or may not be of legal drinking age. That’s what I imagine at least. But Kelly Shibari couldn’t be further from that description, yet she’ll be on the cover of Penthouse come January 2016.
In fact, Kelly is a 43-year-old, half-Asian, full-figured adult film star.
“The beauty standard in Japan at that time was that women were very small and petite and slender and didn’t really have a lot of curves,” she told Huffington Post. “I was probably a little bit chubbier than most of the girls. I’m half-Irish so I developed early, and so when you’re in sixth grade and you have a C cup, all the kids automatically assume it’s just because you’re fat. And so, I was bullied.”
Now, she’s a confident model.
Shibari modeled for Penthouse Forum in 2014 and the issue sold out quickly, which made Penthouse realize they needed to put Shibari on the cover. Next month, it’s finally happening!
