Her nude pictorial is featured in the January/February edition of the digital magazine, currently available online.
Miss DeMaria, 28, grew up in Northern California and began ballet, tap and jazz dance classes at age 7. At 18 she began traveling the world as a professional dancer aboard luxury cruise ships.
In 2009 she moved to Las Vegas where she became a featured dancer in numerous production shows on the Strip. She appeared in four casino productions — at Stratosphere, Las Vegas Hilton, the Flamingo, and Sahara — before landing her current role in “FANTASY” at Luxor, one of the highest-acclaimed adult shows in Vegas.
Miss DeMaria says she decided to pose for Playboy — her first-ever nude photo shoot — because “I have myself in great shape right now, Playboy South Africa is a classy publication, and I figured the timing was right. Also, I knew the photographer, and I was confident of shooting beautiful photos.”
She added, “Secretly, I’ve been hoping for this for years. It’s such an honor to be selected as a Playboy centerfold model of the month.”
Eventually Miss DeMaria aims to become a show host on television. “But dancing is my current passion,” she says, “and I love performing for a live audience every night.”
Playboy Magazine South Africa is an international edition of the well-known Playboy publication empire. Unlike their US counterpart, Playboy South Africa intends to continue publishing classy, aesthetically beautiful nude pictorials. Miss DeMaria’s “Playmate of the Month” pictorial will be shared with all other Playboy editions for possible publication around the globe.
