Hey, I’ve covered Stephy C before—as a cute girl with a shapely butt. And that’s not an inaccurate description, but it sure is incomplete. There is much more to Stephy than cuteness and shapely-buttness. She has plenty to say so enough jibba jabba out of me.
Hometown/Birthplace: I was born in Evanston, Illinois, and raised in Northwest Indiana, and I moved down to West Lafayette to go to Purdue University. I still go back a lot because my family now lives there. But I would say my hometown is LaPorte, Indiana, where I was raised.
Current location: Everywhere! I don’t really have a home, per se, as I travel so much for modeling. Catch me at your local airport.
Where you might have seen me: My career started when I was still in college at Purdue. Some awesome people from Playboy came in for a casting call for Girls of the Big Ten during my senior year (my first senior year). I went, and they picked me. We did the shoot and I loved it so much that I wanted to continue modeling. I joined a networking site and built up my portfolio by driving to various shoots on weekends, since I was still in school. I then graduated and started to do it full time—and here I am today! I definitely owe my career to Playboy. I shot with them a few more times after the initial one, and you may have seen me as Mariela Henderson (my Playboy name) on playboy.com or in Special Editions like College Girls, Natural Beauties, Sexy 100, and Hot Buns. I have also been in a few other magazines—including SHOW, Straight Stuntin, and Blackmen—as well as multiple other online features and art nude books.
Measurements: 32C or D-24-37
Upcoming projects: I don’t have anything specific coming up. I am just going to continue shooting and traveling and seeing what comes my way. I will be shooting a lot for my personal website, www.stephyc.com, as well as other sites and portfolio work. But nothing super big or specific as of now. Hopefully Playboy will decide to feature me again soon; it’s been a while since I’ve done a Special Edition.
I think my best physical feature is: I really like my smile. I love to smile and (at the risk of sounding really cheesy) I think it lights up a room and makes other people want to smile as well. I had braces so my teeth are pretty nice and I have cute dimples too! I also like my butt. It’s shrunk a little since last year—working on that!—but it is still round and nicely shaped. I know how to work with it to make it look the best too. I have dimples of Venus, which are dimples above the booty, as well.
Men say my best physical feature is: Most will say my butt. But a lot of them like my smile as well, and some say that my boobs are a nice surprise—especially in person, where they look perkier and fuller than in some pics.
Tattoos, and what they mean: I just have one very small one that I got in college before I started modeling. It is on the left side of my upper back and is often retouched out or covered by my hair or clothing. It says “sweet” in Cherokee symbols. Why? Because I am sweet and part Cherokee! I thought it was something unique and different than the typical Chinese characters. But don’t worry, Playboy editors and glamour photographers, I’m not getting any more!
Sexiest woman ever: I would have to say Eva Mendes. She is curvy, Latina, and just oozes sexuality and spice. I’d totally hit it. Runners up include Sofia Vergara and Playmate Jessica Burciaga.
Sexiest man ever: I really like Tyson Beckford. He is tall, dark, and handsome (I know, that’s so cliché) and his body is incredible. And his lips … oh my! I met him briefly at a party once and he is just as sexy in person.
Runners up? Early 90s era Q-Tip—watch the “Electric Relaxation” video and tell me he’s not smooth. Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals. Professional soccer player Oguchi Oneywu—look him up ladies. The entire Wu-Tang Clan, including ODB. And Chuy from Chelsea Lately. And yes, I like the “dark meat.”
My best trait is: Personality wise? I suppose that I am super nice, humble and have a great sense of humor (more than one, sorry). I also love sports!
My worst habit is: I have a bad and very “relaxed” relationship with time. I don’t like it!
I wish more men would: Learn how to properly use their tongues.
The key to my heart is: Cookies, pug dogs, nudity, old school hip-hop, and Da Bears!
Compliment me on: Besides the usual T&A compliments—which are fine, believe me!—I like getting compliments on my sense of humor and what’s inside my skull. I know—groan. But it is nice when people can recognize that I am educated and intelligent and not just a “dumb” model. Which I might add is a bad stereotype; most of the models I’ve met are very smart and business-minded.
How much should a man groom his private parts?: If he’s hairy, a lot! I prefer it to be neatly trimmed or shaven. You don’t have to remove it all, but I don’t want to see or have to deal with a jungle of taco meat.
My grooming down there: I either wax or shave. I go back and forth between completely clean shaven and having a small but noticeable landing strip. I like having the strip because it’s the best of both worlds: Some hair for the art nude photographers I shoot with, but mostly bald for the glamour guys! I have also tried to grow a full bush, but it just doesn’t work for me. Not only does it grow in funny looking, but it gets in the way for—ahem—personal reasons.
Favorite style of panties: Thong, boy shorts or none—I actually like all three, for different reasons. Boy shorts are great for lounging around the house when you have to be covered but still want to show a little cheek. Thongs are for everyday wear under pants, dresses, etc. I also love being naked, so of course “none” is a frequent choice at home and for sleeping. I’ll even go commando under comfortable pants, such as tights or yoga pants, when going out. But not jeans.
What I like in a bra: I like bras that give me great cleavage. I don’t like them to be too padded because that is false advertising—and pointless, since pretty much everyone can see my naked boobies online anyway. But my boobs do push up nicely so some underwire is great. I also like really sexy sheer or lacy bras for photo shoots or personal bedroom time.
Pet name for my boobs: Left one is Steve, right one is Ted. I didn’t make it up—it was given to me by one of my favorite photographers, T H Taylor. I would tell you to ask him for an explanation, but I don’t think he has one.
What I love about my boobs: They are not too big, not too small … like Goldilocks, they are just right! They are also perky and all natural, and my nipples aren’t dinner plates.
When it comes to my body, please do: Compliment me on your favorite feature, give me a massage, ask about my sensitive spots, etc.
When it comes to my body, please do not: Touch me without asking, get in my personal space, point out your least favorite feature in a rude way, etc.
Most important rule or rules of bedroom etiquette: As discussed above, keep your junk area neatly trimmed and also washed. Don’t try to get it on right after a workout—please shower first! Both male and female crotches have shelf lives. Also if one party goes downtown, the other should return the favor!
Physical feature I like to show off: My smile, legs, titties, and ass.
The sexiest outfit I will wear in public: If it’s for a photo shoot in a private “public” place or nude beach—both of which I’ve done—nothing at all! If it’s in an actual public place, such as a nightclub, a very short and tight dress and sexy high heels is probably the sexiest. Unless it’s Halloween, when it’s more socially acceptable to dress a little sluttier than that.
Something I will wear the bedroom if you are deserving: Leather, fishnets, your favorite role playing costume. The sexiest, laciest, trashiest lingerie, you’ve ever seen. Very few are deserving though.
A superficial thing I am attracted to: A great smile and a cut body. Also a soft ass—on girls, not guys!
My favorite physical feature on a man: Abs, arms, a strong back, and a large wang.
My favorite trait in a man: Great personality, a sense of humor, and intelligence.
A man will impress me if: He doesn’t try too hard. Or he does try to get to know me and not just to get to know my crotch.
A man will turn me on if: He looks good naked; has a great sense of humor; has goals, ambition, and intelligence; takes care of himself (physically and otherwise); and likes good music.
A man will disappoint me if: He has bad hygiene, is dumb or ignorant, doesn’t try, or has a small wang.
The simplest thing you can do to make me happy is: Watch a Bears game with me, listen to some great music, or show me a cute picture or video of a pug.
I will not even give you a second look if: You like the Packers.
Something stupid men do or say when they first meet me: Well, most of the stupid stuff I get is on Twitter. I don’t remember any specific examples, but I either ignore them or try to retweet them so I can laugh. Mostly it’s just about what they would “do” to me or stuff about buttholes. Nothing special.
I will sleep with you when: The time is right and I am attracted to you both physically and emotionally. I don’t really have a specific rule on this—it’s not like I wait like 6 months or a year. Once I feel comfortable with a person, I’ll know it’s time.
I will never sleep with you if: You smell bad or have bad hygiene, insult or are rude to me or any of my friends and family members, or expect too much too soon.
Don’t you dare: Insult the Bears or pug dogs in my presence!
I am the ideal woman because: I am cute, sweet, funny, intelligent, like being naked, like sports, like to cook (naked), like good music, like dogs, take care of myself, will take care of you, am a big dork and love to be silly.
I am not the ideal woman because: I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. I am a nude model and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. So if you are jealous or don’t like that, it probably won’t work out.
I am the best in the world at: Texting—I have very fast thumbs.
I need a man who will: Treat me right, care for me as I care for him (it should be a joint effort), share similar interests, not get jealous about my nude modeling, and know how to work it in the sack
In my opinion, astrology is: Cool to look at on occasion. I don’t generally follow it, but if I’m reading a magazine or newspaper that has horoscopes, I’ll glance over mine.
If you come to my house, don’t criticize: My décor or stash of beauty products. I’ll probably have pictures of pugs hanging up and other dorky things. The bathroom will have some products that may be foreign to you, but they are a part of my routine. I am a pretty neat and organized person in general though, so you probably won’t see a mess.
The last movie that made me laugh: Bridesmaids is the last movie I watched. It was pretty funny and I did chuckle a few times.
The last movie that made me cry: Inception. It wasn’t a sad movie, per se, but the end was kind of a happy-sad moment (when they returned) and I shed a few tears.
My philosophy of love: Don’t try too hard to find it; it will come to you when the time is right.
My philosophy of sex: I like it—lots of it!
My philosophy of life: Don’t take it too seriously. Have fun and do things that make you happy in between the necessary serious stuff. It truly is short and precious, and too many people (including myself at times) take it for granted. Laugh, live, be naked, enjoy it!
I should be on the cover of Playboy because: I have that old fashioned Playboy “Girl Next Door” look. I am cute, have a winning smile, great T&A, and a just the right amount of sex appeal to sell well. I also have a large fan base that would freak out, in a good way, if they saw me on the cover of an issue. Right now my goal is a Special Editions cover—fingers crossed—but maybe someday I’ll grace the cover of the main magazine. It would be a great honor and a dream come true. (Yes, that’s cheesy, but honest.)
