Default Karen Price

I discovered this cover shot of Karen just a few days ago, and now I'm curious. Did Karen ever have any big photo sessions with magazines other than PB? "CINCO" looks like it may be a PB affiliate but I'm unable to find any useful info. Your insight will be appreciated .

Maybe an affiliate magazine or just a rip-off of regular PB-shots. In any case, the quilted blouse she's wearing appeared one time only in an official PB christmas ad:



So it seems that there were no outer-PB shootings made.


@admin: Could you please move this not unimportant discussion into the Karen Price thread?

No real idea on the origin of the mag, but for other articles ("tarifas de los burdeles de Lima") seems to be a peruvian magazine. Never heard nothing about a peruvian mag of Playboy.

Default Tribute to Karen Price – Why I’m a fan!

I hope fellow fans won’t mind if I post a tribute to Karen. We’re usually not a talkative bunch on VEF. We’re mostly interested in sharing photos and videos of our favorites, which is great. But I’d like to share my thoughts about Karen and hope others might share theirs.

Karen’s performance, I think, speaks to everything that was right about PB in its Golden Age, when it was at the height of its popularity and profitability. It opens with Karen smiling in a peasant blouse. Next she performs gymnastic moves, plays on the beach, and splashes in a hot tub. She’s having fun and enjoying being a Playmate. She teases us with the strap of her gown or a downward glance. Then Karen seduces us: she knows how beautiful she is and she knows the effect her beauty has. And finally, she loses herself in the moment.




What is wonderful about her photos is that they celebrate Karen as a person—her humor, friendliness, playfulness, strength, athleticism, passion, and sexual energy. They capture her pride and confidence. She is beautiful in every sense. Her photos are erotic, artful, and sensual in the way that PB’s photographs always are at their best. Her shoots were not modeling sessions or lingerie shows—they were performances to die for. In PB today, many Playmates pose passively before the camera, leaving us cold, even if they reveal more of themselves physically. But Karen, by revealing her warmth, feelings, and sexuality, has given us a vision of female beauty and seductiveness that is overwhelming, one for which we fans are forever grateful. That is why, I think, we voted her “Ultimate Playmate” on our old Yahoo PB website and why she’s the most popular PM on VEF.

Of course, Karen’s shoots were great because she enjoyed being in front of the camera. She’s having the time of her life—caught up in the excitement, eager to please her fans, and determined to give a great performance. Perhaps it’s the gymnast in her. What also made her performance great, however, was the way that PB presented it in her original layout. PB let it unfold slowly. When we see Karen outdoors in her peasant blouse, smiling and playing with her pet squirrel, we are smitten; when she invites us into the gym to watch her practice on the balance beam, we are moved by her talent, grace, and beauty. We’ve already fallen for Karen—which leaves us all the more speechless when she disrobes in the gym and seduces us in the bedroom.

The opening photos of Karen’s shoot are essential to her appeal to her fans and to the experience that PB offers its Playmates and readers at its best. PB has a bundle of these pictures in its archives, as shown by several they’ve shared in miniature in the “Dear Playmates” section and on Playmates.com. There are probably many more great photos of Karen and her pet squirrel, Karen on Muscle Beach with family and friends, Karen in the gym, and Karen in a night gown. It would be fun as well to see Karen in the sundress she was wearing on the patio at the start of her beach shoot (she looks great in what we’ve been able to see of that outfit, but by the time PB has allowed us to join the proceedings, half of it has already fallen to her waist).



To withhold these pictures simply because they show Karen wearing clothes is a terrible mistake, artistically, financially, and emotionally. Without these photos, Karen can’t connect with us, nor we with her, except as a physical presence. Even Karen, lovely as she is, needs time--a few moments at least!--to win our hearts. And having risked so much for us, Karen deserves that time, to establish herself as a person and command our respect and admiration. By withholding her opening photos, PB demeans Karen and her fans, by implying that she has value only when she is naked—something she complained about in her interview with the Brandon Sun. But PB is also losing money by withholding them. PB cannot offer a powerful, compelling, profitable alternative to pornography if it fails to appreciate what makes its photo shoots great and why so many of its Playmates and fans have been able to connect with each other over the years as people and as friends. By respecting fans and Playmates, and by letting great performances unfold in their entirety, PB’s magazine and Cyber Club might survive in a hard-core world, by offering something different and better.

Next, Karen charms us. She balances playfully on the balance beam, frolics in the surf, laughs when a dog comes up to her on a patio, and performs a stunning gymnastic move in the bedroom. She’s at ease, having fun, and loving every minute before the camera.





Karen has fun in the hot tub, too. She’s the happy, smiling, outgoing, fun-loving girl-next-door to-die-for.



Just as important to the success of Karen’s performance was her willingness to explore the boundaries of PB’s erotic art. She gives in to her sexual passion and celebrates it. When she is in the gym or the bedroom or by the fireplace, she strikes provocative poses, as many Playmates do. But Karen goes beyond that. She seduces us boldly, deliberately, and dares us to resist. She leans forward in the gym as she disrobes, giving us our first loving look at her body. As she lies on the bed or gets down on all fours, she looks straight into our eyes, telling us not to be shy, inviting us to linger on the shape of her bottom and the curve of her breast, knowing we’ll return to her beautiful brown eyes. She sits cross-legged, hunches her shoulders, and leans forward again, inviting us again to take a long look. Then she stands nude before the bed, bends forward with her hand on the rail, and lets her hair and breasts fall. She knows the sexual passion she arouses in us, and the stunning beauty of her breasts, and she revels in it. They’re real, they’re spectacular, and Karen does everything she can to let us fans see them, appreciate them, and enjoy them from every angle as she lets gravity do its work. We’re grateful!






Then, as her performance reaches its climax, Karen plays with her body. She squeezes her breasts gently with her arms, rides the strap of her gown, fondles herself, arouses herself, and lets her feelings overwhelm her. Karen is probably acting at these moments, like Meg Ryan’s character in When Harry Met Sally, but we’re guys: we don’t mind, and Karen’s acting is great! She shares a private moment with us: her expressions capture her feelings.




Why PB shared few of these photos in its magazine is a mystery. They don’t reveal more physically than other PB photos do—in fact, these photos show us less of Karen’s body than many photos of other PMs do. What they reveal is her sexuality. If PB were to market the great ecstatic photos of Karen and of other Playmates who have pushed the envelope—Patti McGuire, Marilyn Lange, and Patty Farinelli come to mind—it could make a mint, and it wouldn’t be going the hard-core route to do so. Letting the girl next door, a natural beauty, express herself sexually is breathtaking. Fans would be delighted to pay for a chance to see these climactic photos—and Karen’s performance isn’t complete without them.

I hope that Karen didn’t have second thoughts about being a PM because she revealed so much of herself before the camera. That’s precisely why so many PB fans admire her and think of her as the ultimate girl-next-door—why we wish her happiness and are thrilled that she has accomplished so much in her life. Her generosity, her spirit, and her passion shine through. Karen embodied the best of PB in its Golden Era, when it celebrated not only natural beauty, but sexuality, in a proud and powerful way. Our favorite Playmates of that era shared the fantasy, it seems, of PB fans—of a woman who was proud of herself and her body, who revealed herself not only physically, but emotionally and sexually, and left us utterly seduced. There is nothing more breathtaking than a beautiful woman who laughs, has fun, flirts with us, tempts us, and gets caught up in the moment, making her fantasy ours, as Karen did. We’re in her debt, and grateful for all she has given us.

Default Karen's movie appearances

Does anyone have screen grabs of Karen’s scenes in SWAMP THING or TAPEHEADS? I posted a You-Tube link on her regular VEF thread to clips from Hell Night part 2 (1981), but we don’t have links for these two movies. Palaeolox posted the following comments on Yahoo:


Swamp Thing (1982) palaeolox

I saw this movie when it was first released back in February 1982. Karen Price has two short scenes in it.

The first scene (at 31 minutes into the movie), she walks down a hall toward the camera with a clipboard in her hand, and says a few lines to Dr. Arcane. She is wearing a loose-fitting pink shirt.

In her second scene at about 78 minutes into the movie, she walks into the room bringing Dr. Arcane some brandy on a tray, then she recoils in horror at how he has changed. In that scene she is wearing a really nice robe befitting a Playboy playmate, and is looking good.


Tapeheads (1988)

This movie was just released on DVD and I just viewed this movie over at netflix.com. Since the movie TAPEHEADS is one of the few (around 4) feature films where Karen Price had appeared in front of the camera, I thought I would review it here. (or rather her part in the movie)

Karen Price first appears in about 41 minutes into the movie as one of the foxy extras in the making of he heavy-metal rock video. You can first spot her in the background walking up some steps. She also has a close-up scene with two lines in the movie, one being "Are you guys famous?" Even though she has less then a minute of screen time, I spotted her right away in this movie. She was wearing a tight colorful 1980's outfit.

Default Karen's father's career

King Klung posted this note on Yahoo, which may be of interest to Karen’s fans:

Anyone here have any additional information concerning the career about jazz drummer Ray Price? From what I understand he is originally from England, and later went to Australia, then Canada and then to the USA, and toured with some of the jazz greats back in the 1960's and early 1970's,such as Stan Kenton, George Shearing, and the Oscar Peterson trio. He played drums on some of their recordings too, and according to Karen Price became the drummer in the band of comedian Rich Little

From what I have recently read of him,is that he currently lives in Seattle WA, and still plays the drums at some night clubs, such as The Amore club in Seattle. Here is the link to the Amore club web page. Maybe someone here can ask him about his career.

Default Karen's stunt woman calendar shoot

I wish someone could run down the stunt woman calendar she posed for, if it ever materialized. It would be fun to have more photos of her! I tried e-mailing the photographer a few years ago, but no response, and I’m not the greatest web searcher. Maybe someone else could try!

P.S. – The post by that photographer appears below:



Subject: Re: Price, Kemp, & Physical Fitness

Correct me if I'm wrong. But, wasn't Karen Price a gymnast at one time and had to give it up because puberty struck her with a vengeance?

I photographed Karen about 10 years ago (or maybe more) for a calendar of sexy stunt women, and she was one of them. We shot her on a trapeze setup in her back yard (or her trainer's) because that was her specialty.

Default

When I lived in the LA area, one of my roommates had kids that got involved in what they called acrosports.
They would use a teeter board to get launched into the air and do twists and somersaults.
A group of stunt people would bring a board and mats to the grassy area in front of the lifeguard station below the Santa Monica pier and they would practice on Saturdays.
Karen was trying to get into stunt work, and showed up irregularly.
I remember her as being a very nice person who was not happy with the post centerfold obligations Playboy insisted upon.
She wanted to finish what she owed them and get out.
I also remember her as not being happy with her father.
Somewhere in my negatives, I have pictures of her at the beach, but no scanner.

There's an interview on the "Karen Price thread where she says her father basically pimped her out to Playboy.
