Jenny McCarthy is gracing the July/August cover of Playboy magazine.
The host of NBC’s Love in the Wild tells PEOPLE she’s extremely proud to be back in Playboy.
“I’m really proud of it,” McCarthy tells PEOPLE. “The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They’re really elegant. It’s probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you’d see of people with their clothes on.”
This 39 year old beauty stated she didn’t have any concerns about posing for Playboy.
“Why should 20-year-old girls be the only ones that are considered desirable?” the blonde bombshell said in a statement. “MILFs are sexy, too!”
Jenny also explained that her sex life has improved with age.
“This point in my life has been the most fun, sexual extravaganza,” she told the mag. “The orgasms are night-and-day better. I feel 100 billion times more sexual, and that comes out in this pictorial.”
Adding, “There’s room for guys to be attracted to strong females, but I still feel like the girl next door.”
Prepping for the shoot wasn’t very hard for the multi-talented mom.
“The one thing I like about Playboy is they don’t have the anorexic look,” she says. “The women are voluptuous. So I didn’t really want to diet. I just wanted to tone up.”
This is McCarthy’s 6th appearance on the cover of Playboy. She first appeared as Playboy’s Miss October in 1993. She went on to become the magazine’s 1994 Playmate of the Year and appeared in the men’s magazine four more times (July 1996, December 1996, September 1997, and January 2005).
The only clothing McCarthy is wearing are mesh gloves and thigh-high boots. She has her breast’s covered with her hands and her legs are crossed. She first appeared on the cover of Playboy in 1993 in the October issue. She became Playmate of the Month and later Playmate of the Year.
McCarthy will turn 40 in a few months. She says that life has never been better.
The star’s 8-page nude pictorial – shot by photographer Steve Shaw – will be featured in the mag’s July/August 2012 double issue available on June 29.
