Centrefold Venus of the Month 33: Justine Greiner, February 1984

So, in our sadly delayed state, it is on to February's Centrefold Venus and it's another eighties one in the fine form of Miss Justine Greiner from Playboy's February 1984 issue.

We have featured Justine before in one of our looks at the best Playboy centrefolds from individual months where she easily topped our February selection, not least as she is a somewhat atypical looking Playmate.

The process of selecting which of the thousands of centrefolds we have pictures of to feature in this blog is done with some care.   We keep a log of which ones we have used, the magazine they are from and the decade they represent.  It would be very easy, otherwise, just to feature endless girls from the seventies (although nothing wrong with that).  

We firstly go through all of the pictures we have in our hard drive looking at, for example, every Playboy Playmate and Penthouse Pet from February.  We have at least the digital image of all the Playboy centrefolds (as well as the splendid Chronicle Books edition of them all).  Noting any possibles we put images into another file. Next we look at other magazines we might have from a selection that includes Men Only, Mayfair, Club International and a scattering of examples from Club (US), Hustler, Galley, Genesis and others.  

We prefer not to use other people's scans unless they have been done by someone reliable, such as S in Canada, who knows the importance of putting a sheet of black paper behind the magazine page to be scanned.  So, once we have identified a number of candidates we check on our master index to see if we have the relevant magazine so that we can scan it.  

We own every issue of UK Penthouse for the first fifteen years and around 150 copies of the US version (taking up where our UK issues finish). We have pretty much all of the seventies and early eighties Oui magazines and most of the seventies Men Only and Club Internationals too.  We have over 550 issues of Playboy and all the others digitally so we have a good range to choose from.

Finally, we look at our shortlist and find out if they have done anything else of interest such as modelling for other magazines or acting on TV or film.   The research for this can take some time, which is why we have built up a backlog at present.  

So, the final choice is based on how we respond to the lady's looks, which magazine they were in, what decade they appeared and whether there is an interesting story about them with other available pictures. 

So, given that we had a Penthouse girl last month then Playboy seemed a natural starting point.  We actually started looking at nineties girls for a change but kept coming back to Justine.  

Justine doesn't, in fact, fulfill one of our key criteria in that we have been able to find out almost nothing else about her.  Essentially, she did this one shoot for Playboy and then never appeared again, although other photos taken at the time have shown up elsewhere.

As we mentioned on our previous post, her photo shoot was done in 1982 for a scheduled November 1982 appearance but her Playmate appearance was delayed, for some reason, until February 1984.  Whatever, she left the Playboy camp, sadly.  This perfect and saucy posterior shot shows us what we missed due to her lack of further shoots.

We do know that Greiner was her real name as she has a sister who is an award winning poet.  The family name was Swiss although she was born in Boston in November 1963 but moved to California when she was ten.

She was a strapping 5'9" tall and measured an impressive 36-25-35.  She started studying at University in Kansas but missed the ocean so returned to California.  The last Playboy heard of her she was working in a shop in Beverley Hills.

The glory of her pictorial, of which these are the final ones from the magazine itself, is this trio of Justine writhing on a fur, her hands delving into her simple but effective knickers.  These are the images Triple P remembered from this pictorial, as he bought the original magazine when it came out.

Fortunately, there are some other photographs from this sequence which appeared in foreign editions of the magazine or in some of the Newsstand Specials which were just starting to appear.

Shortly before this issue came out Triple P's girlfriend was living at home with her very conservative parents.  She was too shy to buy the more exotic lingerie she wanted, or wear stockings, because of what her mother would think.

However, we went on a weekend away and she bought some new knickers which were exactly like these, with a very narrow band around the sides.  They were quite sheer as well, even though they were cotton.  Whilst not exactly pushing the boundaries of boudoir exotica in lingerie, for this particular young lady they were a bold and sexy statement

Moreover, she first modelled these for us in our cozy attic hotel room in Bristol.  In fact it was so cozy that Triple P had trouble standing upright without hitting his head on the beams.  Our young lady pointed out that it didn't matter as we were going to spend all our time horizontal anyway.  We do remember that it was the first time we had paid for a hotel room and were appalled at the £60 a night cost.

It was worth it, however, to see the young lady resplendent in her tight, new knickers and baby doll nightie squirming around artistically on the double bed.  It was the first time we had had a double bed to have fun in,  as all our previous sexual activity had taken place on sofas, the floor or even outside.

She had always said that the only way she could get herself excited on her own was by pulling her knickers tightly up between her legs and wriggling about.  Obviously feeling the effect of the new underwear she gave us a very graphic demonstration of this and even, as Justine does her, slipped a hand inside her knickers to caress her lovely golden fleeced pussy,  Usually she was very shy about such displays in front of Triple P but said that she enjoyed the feeling of tightness over her mound she got from brand new knickers.

We think, therefore, that the reason we respond so positively to Justine's pictorial is due to the memory of that young lady wriggling about for us in her nice new knickers.  We are pretty sure this happened just before this issue came out.  It might have been just afterwards but certainly the two have become inextricably linked in our mind!

We do remember leaving our dressing gown belt in the hotel room as we had been using it to tie the lady to the headboard and forgot about it.  She was the first girl we had met who liked being tied up and it took some time before Triple P could overcome his feminist upbringing and comply with her S&M fantasies! We remember her taking us into a curtain shop so that she could buy lengths of black satin twisted cord.  We thought it was for curtains but it turned out to be for her wrists and ankles!

These three are from Playboy's Japanese edition which did not permit the depiction of pubic hair so that alternative groin concealing poses had to be shot.

There are quite a few of Justine in this lacy top.  Some of the outdoor photos from her magazine pictorial were shot at June Lake, Mammoth, California and these pictures look like they were taken in that Playboy staple, the ski chalet.

This one (above) is the rather different opening spread from Playboy Germany where Justine appeared as Miss October 1984.

It could well be a set of course, rather than a real chalet but Ken Marcus has captured the appropriate candle lit and roaring fire feeling.

Well, there was at least a real log cabin used for some of the exteriors as Justine demonstrates by posing delightfully on the deck.  She looks rather to well coiffed to have just fallen out of bed after a night of passion but we suppose that is the intention of having the orange juice in the pictures.

Here she is in country style checks in front of what does look like a real fireplace, we have to say.   It's nice to see a smile!

In this one her figure actually reminds Triple P of his next girlfriend (after the wriggling knickers one) but that is a story for another time.  Two more reasons to like Justine!

Two more from Playboy Japan amongst this next set of her in stockings including her "covered-up" centrefold.

This one from Playboy Germany has been flipped compared with the others.

Some nice tactile looking squashiness going on in this titalicious one (above).

These two demonstrate gravity doing wonderful things to her bust.

Here are a few of her posing on the very rustic looking bed.  There would certainly be many opportunities for tying someone up on this one!

Here she is looking all apres ski in an ethnic looking waistcoat.

Here are a few more outdoors ones.  We thought she was being very brave standing thigh deep in the water in the snow but apparently, these are hot springs.  Still, the rest of her must be a bit nippy!

Another one from inside the chalet with another top which only features in this one picture.

These one obviously weren't taken in the chalet but, from the anonymous looking background, in a studio.

Here we have a selection of one-off photos.  We wonder whether the delay in her becoming a Playmate may have had something to do with Hugh Hefner rejecting some initial shoots and them having to be re-done; which was not uncommon.

Here is Justine as Miss November in the 1985 Playboy calendar.  Even though there were no new shoots with her they continued to re-use images for years to come.  She was also one of the few 1984 Playmates who didn't feature in a Playboy video, sadly

For reasons to do with our girlfriends at this time we respond to Miss Greiner more than many of the eighties Playmates, although we have to say that 1984 was something of a vintage year with some of our all time favourites appearing.

Justine, like most of 1984's girls was dark-haired which we always respond to.  Ironically, the two girlfriends we mentioned here were not.  The first was a very natural blonde and the second a dyed blonde who was actually a red-head underneath.

Justine's final pictures were pretty bold for the first half of the eighties, the final one, in particular, being very sensuous.  It's a shame she didn't do more for Playboy but we hope she went on to have an enjoyable life!


  1. amazing playmate, thank you very much!

  2. I remember Justine very well. Particularly the amazing photos of her writhing on the fur with her hand in her knickers, as you put it. They are wonderfully sensual and it's great to see new photos of Justine on the fur. I also like the ones of her in riding attire quite a bit. it's good to see photos of Justine that are new to me even after nearly 30 years. Thanks for posting all the photos of Justine.

  3. One of my all time favorites!


    Funny, but as I was looking through this set of photos, a couple of songs came up from "Damn The Torpedoes" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers... not just a little bit of time travel there.

  4. A magnificent woman who has a powerful effect upon a gentleman!

  5. One of classic 80s Playmates (and there were plenty of those!). Justine hit all the Playboy buttons: gorgeous, sensual and absolutely a girl next door. I love those Playmates who, after their 15 minutes of fame, just went back to real life. Thanks for bringing her back!

  6. Thought you might be interested in a related Justine post. An automobile fansite had a posting about a deTomaso Pantera sports car for sale. this exact vehicle was the subject of a popular wall poster which also included model Justine Greiner in the composition. the link to the auto site, which contains the poster image and some small discussion of Ms Greiner is here:

  7. Thanks so much for this - a unique example (as far as I could find) of a post-Playboy modelling assignment!

    The fastest I have ever traveled in a car (168mph) was in my uncle's De Tomaso Pantera - terrifying!

  8. I remember having the actual magazine with her in it and jerking off to her. Damn, that's the thickest bush I've seen on any playmate. I'd love to get lost in there. I remember jerking off imagining rubbing my cock all in that thick bush. I'd want to part that bush and eat the pink inside. I wish I knew which shop she worked at and I'd go say Hi and ask her if she still had that thick bush.. you can even see it stretched to her ass in some pics..

  9. Certainly, a magnificently furry example!

  10. Big boobs, beautiful bush, pretty face ! I like that. Thanks

  11. She certainly has a lovely face and a lovely bottom too!

  12. A very typical late seventies-early eighties look and that is IN NO WAY intended as an insult. A raven-haired beauty who truly had something special amidst all the stunning models who've graced the pages of that magazine.

    This is a SUPERB blog BTW.


  13. Thank you for this unique pleasure of getting to see a full set of images of one of the most beautiful and erotic models of all time. Hornblower

  14. Clearly my favorite Playmate of all time....and yes, it is a shame that we didn't get a greater dose of Justine's tremendous beauty over the decade of the 1980's. Perfectly natural in every way!!! Your taste in women is top notch!!


    I've always liked this photo since that issue first came out. Her look back over her shoulder is priceless. It says Do you like my sexy ass, and Why aren't you taking me from there yet? I've long thought that the creases where a woman's legs meet her ass is super sexy and Justine's are among the best!

  16. Even nearly 30 years later, I still remember how instantly turned on Justine's photos got me. Her sweet ass, her wide areoles, her untamed jungle of a bush, her playful smile, her obvious enjoyment of her own fingers exploring the inside of her panties. It took me another dozen years after that to find and marry a woman as sexy and sexual as her.


    This photo is, was, and always will be the very definition of HOT!

  18. One of the most real and naturally beautiful playmates ever!

  19. Me and Justine

    It was Oct 1984 as I bought my first Playboy magazine. It was the German issue with Playmate Justine and I immediately was in love with her.
    I was a few years younger than she. Her gorgeous body, beautiful face, wonderful bright eyes and naturally charisma has enthused me from the first moment. I like the nude pictures just like the outdoor shoots with clothes.

    Over the years I’ve seen some more very pretty girls in this magazine. But sooner or later I’ve forgotten one after another. Justine on the other hand stood in my mind all the time.

    And now, nearly 30 years later I see these pictures and to this day they got lost nothing. Justine is still my first love playmate.

    I’ve no idea how she appears today. But I’m very curious if she is still that much attractive.

  20. I dated a girl from Buffalo in college in the early 80's that could have been her "twin sister". I look at these pictures and just smile.....beautiful!

  21. courious. . . where is she now ?

  22. In addition to the overall beauty, I love the puffy and asymmetrical nipples. Hardly ever see that any more.

  23. When it comes to women like Justine, it just keeps cummin' and a cummin' and a cummin! I'm afraid I'd ejaculate my internal organs one by one if I ever made it into that thick lovely garden of hairy pussy delight!

  24. Beautiful girl. Don't make em like that anymore!!

  25. Because I went through puberty in the 80's, this is the perfect woman. Her bush is awesome. Women shave nowadays-BOO!!! When I go down on a woman, I want to run through the jungle. She is a beautiful model.

  26. Classic! Justine Greiner is the real deal, and those last three pictures are all absolutely awesome, especially the middle one......just that look in her very beautiful eyes is enough to......! She's also got a very lovely looking hairy pussy, but then she's just beautiful all over! I don't often think that short-haired women are particularly attractive, but Justine proves that short hair can be every bit as exciting and beautiful as long hair. Thanks very much for posting these pictures.....just fab!

  27. Well . . .
    There was no reason for me to follow Playboy after I saw her. She was everything I didnt know could exist. I had drawn her soo much that I could draw her by heart - now that I'm older seems a bit "weird" but she was a stunning woman.
    Its ironic that when I was older, I lived in Santa Monica (where apparently she resided) and I thought even living in a far east suburb of LA county, that seemed so far away as a kid (we are the same age).
    That hair style is still a fave, and I love it when woman go that retro look today :).

    So now the ultimate question; What happened to her all these years? What is she up to?
    Thank you for sharing the whole set of her pics, she will always be one of a kind for me :). I hope she has had a wonderful life.

  28. Great entry in the Centrefold Venus of the Month category! I really liked Justine's pictorial when it first appeared at the newstand. There was, however, another really lovely and also unusual pictorial featured in the same February, 1984 issue of Playboy. It featured an "older woman", namely Ms. Carol Wayne, who had been a semi-regular performer on America's #1 late night talk-show, The Tonight Show, with Johnny Carson, which had been on for decades by the time of the February, 1984 issue of Playboy. Ms. Wayne was also a supporting role character actress in a number of movies from the time period of the mid 60's through the mid 80's, as well as a television actress on a number of series in the same era, such as I-Spy, Bewitched and Love American Style. What made her appearance in Playboy so unusual was that she was 41 years old at the time, had been married and divorced twice, and had a teenage son. She is probably the oldest Lady to appear completely nude, full-frontal, in Playboy ever, or at least one of the oldest. But, what made her pictorial even more unusual was the fact that, less than a year later, she died while on a trip with an older man under extremely suspicious circumstances! Though the Mexican authorities ruled her death a suicide, many factors called this ruling into serious doubt, at least among those who new her well and looked into her case. To finally get to my question/comment, I was kind of hoping you could do a non-Centrefold Venus article on her pictorial, or at least discuss her pictorial in the appropriate entry for your wonderful Pubic Wars series of blogs, the one for the beginning of 1984. That would be very nice for me, and for others I suspect, not to mention her memory, as the pictorial was almost the last thing of note that she did in her too-short life. I can still recall seeing her occasionally on The Tonight Show, when I was allowed to stay up that late, which was rarely, and thinking what a pretty, buxom woman she was, and how funny were some of the few sketches with Mr. Carson I saw.

  29. Thank you for sharing these wicked pics! She is an eye catcher for sure. Does anybody know what she's doing today?

    1. The article states: The last Playboy heard of her she was working in a shop in Beverley Hills.

    2. Some people only look at the pictures!

  30. For all those who wonder, she was captured shortly after her final photo session for Playboy, and taken to Gor. There she was processed with many others...marked, collared, and trained. She swiftly learned to kneel, naked, at the feet of males, with her thighs open, and to be absolutely deferential to masters. Her first sale was wonderful, as she brought a silver tarsk twenty.

    She has had many masters and has learned to be a true female, in her collar. Her current name is Kala.

  31. I Would've Loved To Of Watched Justine Greiner Get Impregnated By A Black Man

  32. she was and [probably still is gorgeous.

  33. My favorite playmate of all time!

  34. Gorgeous sexy girl with perfect boobs and figure!

  35. Delicia linda,muito gostosa,quero chupa-la e pega-la de todo jeito,beijos bela....
