Thanks for being here. Petra will be here in just a few minutes.
Jgreely
Hi, Petra!
Petra_verkaik
Hi, Jgreely. Thanks for being here.
Redwing
Tell us about the projects you are working on.
Petra_verkaik
I'm working on a Petra video. It will be about me and a few of my girlfiends.
Redwing
Are the girlfriends Playmates too?
Petra_verkaik
Maybe I can pull some strings.
Jgreely
In your data sheet you listed water, lingerie, and the outdoors as turn-ons. Were you already planning your success as a "Book of Lingerie" model?
Petra_verkaik
Not really. I've always loved camping and waterskiing, snowskiing. My success with the Newsstand Specials was a pleasant surprise.
Claus
Who will produce the video?
Petra_verkaik
I will.
Jgreely
Are you tired of the "run over by her own van" story?
Petra_verkaik
Yes and no. I haven't been asked that in a long time.
Keith
Hi Petra, this is Keith, your #1 fan from Germany. Just wondering if you're still answering mail sent to your AOL address?
Petra_verkaik
I was, as you know. But I got so much email that it got out of hand. I will be sending out my newsletter in a few days.
Redwing
Will you be at the Chicago Glamourcon?
Petra_verkaik
Yes, I'm really looking forward to it. I love Chicago! I had a great time at previous Glamourcon shows.

What's the most rewarding thing you've accomplished since becoming a Playmate?
Petra_verkaik
There are 3 things. First, I did an equity play in Canada. It was a 650 seat theater. I played a sexy French maid.
Second, I'm going to be on the cover of a Newsstand Special, which I'm really excited about.
Third, being able to produce my own calendar.
Also, becoming a Playmate is a great thing in and of itself.
Jgreely
Have you done any stage work since your "Pajama Tops" run?
Petra_verkaik
No! I'm dying to.
Jgreely
At Glamourcon 8, someone spotted a sporty blue BMW with license MSPINUP. Was it yours?
Petra_verkaik
No. What a cute idea though. I wish I'd thought of it. I have no idea whose it was.
Keith
Congrats on your BOL Model of the Year victory. Do you think your web site helped you win?
Petra_verkaik
Yes, I do. I think the Web community helped a lot. Thanks guys!
Roch
Is there an address besides Playboy Promotions we can write to you?
Petra_verkaik
You can write to me at: P.O. Box 10134, Beverly Hills, CA 90213-3134.
Redwing
What is the most interesting thing you did today?
Petra_verkaik
I saw Tawnni Cable, Ava Fabian, India Allen at an audition today. We had a blast!
Jgreely
Have you picked the models for your '98 calendar yet?
Petra_verkaik
I have a few girls in mind: Lisa Marie Scott, Priscilla Taylor and others.
Aaalooker
Are you transmitting from your home? If so, what kind of surroundings?
Petra_verkaik
I'm in a room with hardwood floors, big windows, long curtains, five candles, and two big palms.
Redwing
Are you a Cub or White Sox fan?
Petra_verkaik
Who? I wear white socks when I go to the gym, though so I guess I'd go in that direction.
Keith
How many people are in your fan club?
Petra_verkaik
About 500.
moderator
So how does one get your newsletter?
Petra_verkaik
The address again for my fanclub in which you will receive my newsletter is: P.O. Box 10134, Beverly Hills, CA 90213 (please send a SASE)
Wil
Speaking of your role in "Pajama Tops," are you friends off-stage with your co-star, June Wilkinson?
Petra_verkaik
I love June Wilkinson!!! She's like my big sister. She's also my idol. She took care of me and kind of became my mom. We've been trying to get 'Pajama Tops' on tour.
moderator
Not that this is a thread but...
Roch
What type of car are you driving?
Petra_verkaik
How about 'whats my dream car'? It's a convertible James Bond car, definitely! I actually drive a boring old Pathfinder.
David2
As someone who has their own site on the Internet, what do you think about the Cyber Club and other sites for adults?
Petra_verkaik
I love the Playboy website.
My website is about to get redesigned and I'm really excited about that.
Louis11
What web site are we talking about? I got here late. Sorry.
Petra_verkaik
www.pinupgirl.com
You can find out info on the calendar and as I said it is under construction.
Roch
What's on your agenda in the next few days?
Petra_verkaik
I'm going to be doing a video soon and I would like to get an all over tan, so I plan on laying out by the pool with a banana daquiri.
Jgreely
Is Petra a 'high-maintenance' girlfriend?
Petra_verkaik
Yes and no. I like nice dinners and the finer things in life. I like to be treated like a queen, but I can also handle camping for a week. So I guess I'm both.
moderator
Thread switch everyone!
Claus
On the note of white sox - how do you keep in shape?
Petra_verkaik
I love going to the gym and doing step class. I love rollerblading. Usually about 20 miles or so.
Jgreely
Do you really like to dress your boyfriend up in lingerie?
Petra_verkaik
I like to dress up in a lot of ways. It helps with my acting career. My boyfriend is willing to help in my pursuit of happiness.
Petra_verkaik
smiles
Redwing
Do you really think blonds have more fun?
Petra_verkaik
I love being a brunette. I got hit on so much as a blond though, that it kind of drove me nuts.
Moderator
Speaking of hair...
Redwing
Do you prefer guys with or without beards?
Petra_verkaik
I like both. I like shaving beards, and my boyfriend lets me experiment.
Wil
You said (and we all know) you always have fun at Glamourcon. How did you feel about being part of that "Las Vegas Eroticon" late last year?
Petra_verkaik
It's always fun hanging out with the girls. We had fun making a scene.
Roch
What do you do to relax after a long day at work?
Petra_verkaik
I like getting into a hot bath. I like getting lotion rubbed all over me and I'm sure you can imagine the rest.
Redwing
Were you tall as a kid?
Petra_verkaik
Yes, I started getting tall in Junior High. I was also on the track team and was the fastest girl. I could beat most of the guys.
Aaalooker
Were you as pretty of a little girl, as you have turned out as a woman?
Petra_verkaik
I think I bloomed in high school. A girl told me that she pressed her finger and thumb together to get her good figure. I immediately tried it... I guess I got carried away.
Redwing
Did the boys like that?
Petra_verkaik
At least they got used to chasing me.:)
Jgreely
You're wearing a ring on your left hand these days. Are wedding bells in the air?
Petra_verkaik
I'm not married. I like to wear a ring my boyfriend gave me to keep the wolves at bay. I'm not sure I'm ready yet.
Roch
Did any old boyfriends ring you up after your Playmate appearence?
Petra_verkaik
One of them gave me a hard time, because at one time I threw out his Playboy's. And then I turned up in one. Hee, hee.
Jgreely
What scene from your Playboy videos was the most fun to shoot?
Petra_verkaik
I really enjoyed working on Playmates in Paradise. The scene I loved was when Tawnni Cable and I rolled in the waves on a sandy beach.
Diesel
How did playboy discoverer you?
Petra_verkaik
I was studying to be an actress and I needed a head shot. The photographer submitted the photos to Playboy. Then he told me what he'd done and that Playboy wanted to shoot me.
So I hemmed and hawed for about 3 months and decided "What the hell." I'm really glad that I did. Playboy has really helped me bloom.
Jgreely
Are you still thinking about recording an album?
Petra_verkaik
I would love to. I have the group called the Pinup Girls. Tawnni Cable and Monique Noel were in it. I still would love to put something like this together!
Ricky9
Please plan a tour with the 1998 ladies and let us know about it!!
Petra_verkaik
That's a great idea! I'll work on this, and see what I come up with.
Redwing
What is your ideal date?
Petra_verkaik
I love being outdoors so I think waterskiing would be great. Then lunch on the boat, skinnydipping later on, of course.
Petra_verkaik
wink, wink
moderator
We're almost out of time with Petra so submit your last questions... make 'em good!
Redwing
What's the best advise you have received?
Petra_verkaik
What's the difference between a 10 and an 11?
Petra_verkaik
An 11 swallows...It was just a joke people.
Wil
Did you inherit your famous figure from your Mom? Are there any potential Playmates among your relatives?
Petra_verkaik
Yeah, I got my figure from my mom. I'm the only girl in the family, so I'd have to say umm, no.
Megabyte
How does a man get your undivided attention?
Petra_verkaik
A massage would definitely help...
Diesel
I love your portfolio pics a lot =)
Petra_verkaik
Thanks, Diesel!
Redwing
Can you name 5 goals you have for the next 10 years?
Petra_verkaik
I would love to get a recurring role on a TV show. I would also love to be in a movie, get married and start a family, have my own art studio, and wash my car naked in the front yard without getting arrested! :)
David2
It's been nice chatting with you Petra.. And it was a good joke!
Roch
Bye Petra! It was a blast!
Redwing

Petra_verkaik
Thanks for chatting with me. I had a really great time.
Diesel
