Candy Loving Biography

Candy Loving is an American model. She was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for the January 1979 issue, which made her the magazine’s 25th Anniversary Playmate, and was crowned the Playmate of the Month in January of the same year. Her centerfold was photographed by Dwight Hooker.

Candy became a recognized national sex symbol after that month’s edition hit the stands. She beat thousands of applicants to get the spot and traveled around the country, relishing the finest things of life.

Candy Loving Career

In 1978, Playboy magazine began a yearlong nationwide Great Playmate Hunt for its 25th-anniversary publication. Candy was working in a dress shop and as a waitress when she saw the ad in the paper.

At the urging of her then-husband, Candy entered the contest and photographer Dwight Hooker shot the test photos of her. Seven months later the 22-year-old college student beat out more than 3,500 other models with her natural beauty, girl-next-door looks, and name that seemed almost fabricated for a playmate.

Her centerfold came out in the January 1979 issue. That year, she took advantage of her celebrity status and moved out to California to pursue acting and modeling. She traveled the world as the ambassador of Playboy magazine.

By 1981, she realized the celebrity life was not for her, so she reenrolled at the University of Oklahoma at the age of 25 to finish her bachelor’s degree in journalism, and then began a Master of Arts degree in human relations.

She continued to perform publicity duties for the magazine during her studies and after, but began phasing out of that lifestyle. The Playboy life had taken its toll on her marriage and she later met Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Dave Reavis when both were judging a beauty pageant.
