[FloridaToday (http://floridatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061024/BREAKINGNEWS/61024034)] Some of the young women showed up to do something bold and out of the ordinary. Some felt it would boost their careers in modeling or other professions. Many were there for the money.

Differing motives brought a small group of University of Central Florida students to a dimly-lit hotel room Monday, awaiting auditions for a chance to appear in Playboy Magazine’s “Girls of the Conference USA” college pictorial.

Although the auditions were not affiliated with UCF in any way, they were open to all of the university’s female students older than 18.

“Deep down I have a shy personality,” said Cassandra Watwood, a freshman business major. “This is going to be my confidence boost.”

All the girls who are chosen for the pictorial will be “compensated well,” according to a Playboy spokesman, and that was a major incentive for some of the girls trying out.

“It’ll get me out of debt, that’s for sure,” said Laurhen LeBlanc, a senior marketing major who is graduating in December. “I’m moving across the country and I need money.”

Pamela Runsick, a senior advertising/public relations major and graduate of Melbourne High School, said she was thrilled to be auditioning.

“It’s a lot of girls’ dream to be in Playboy,” Runsick said. “Some people think it’s trashy and disrespectful to women, but I think it’s a form of art.”

But what do their parents think?

“They don’t know,” Rodriguez said. “But I wouldn’t have a problem telling them. I don’t know what they would say, but I don’t think they would be too upset.”

Runsick’s mother knows about her audition.

“She’s happy about it,” Runsick said.

I wouldn't go very deep into it since it is a lounge thread, but I will always find it a bit of a discussion on whether taking advantage of the objectification that men send towards woman is indeed a valid and strong basis for feminism... as in, by using a feminine strength you revert roles to one of power, or by using a strenght that is mandated by a male perception and fantasy you are actually giving in... stupid thing, but I always have curiosity behind the train of thought of people who attack both positions.

And I think this:
“Deep down I have a shy personality,” said Cassandra Watwood, a freshman business major. “This is going to be my confidence boost.” is quite sad.

The only art happening in Playboy is when the graphics guy fires up Photoshop and clicks on 'airbrush'.

Why don't they just save themselves the trouble and put the Bob Hope lens on the camera. You know, that soft one you'd see on the Christmas specials.

While they are on the hunt they should sing that song we used to do in school as kids, I can't quite remember how it goes but it was something about going through a forest and a bridge and a stream or something and you were like "can't go over it, can't go under it, must go AROUND it" :lol:. Does anyone remember that song? It's driving me nuts, I'm trying to remember the lyrics or the song name and I'm at a loss. I think you were hunting a bear, or there was a bear in it, lol, I really can't remember.
