If only!!

No, Tina Louise never appeared as a PMOM. In the early years of Pl@yboy, they often purchased stock photos from independent photography studios: as an example, neither Marilyn Monroe nor Betty Page, both of whom appeared as playmates, ever walked into the Pl@yboy offices or studios – their images were licensed from photography studios that supplied calendar companies. By 1953, when Marilyn Monroe appeared as the first playmate, she was far too famous to pose for nude shots anymore – that famous calendar pose had been shot in 1951, two years before Pl@yboy started publication.
If I recall correctly, the first playmate who actually posed specifically for Pl@yboy appeared about a year into publication, in February or March of 1954.

To get back to Tina Louise, by 1962 she was hugely popular – her image had appeared on dozens and dozens of magazine covers, she had won a golden globe as “best new actress” in 1958, been in the “scandal newspapers” over and over as a “wild girl” who was dating every rich playboy in New York, and by 1960 had moved to Rome for 2 years to try and score big in the “peplum” movies that were all the rage back then (“Siege of Syracuse”, "Warrior Empress”) as well as a bit part in a Rossellini movie. This 1962 calendar image was part of a series of “peekaboo” self-promo shots she had done while she was in Rome (along with the famous “negligée” shot that Pl@yboy also featured in one of its 1962 issues):



Tina was featured in two or three Pl@yboy “pictorials” – never nude, though – in the late fifties and early sixties. As her popularity started to fade, she accepted the role in “Gilligan’s Island” TV show, which pretty much ended her “serious movie” aspirations and also ended any chance of her risking her TV contract by appearing in any nude or semi-nude photo shoots anywhere (and besides, by then she was 30 years old).
