The Model - Juicy June Wilkinson

Juicy June  is a British adult model and actress, known for her appearances in Playboy magazine and in films of the 1960s.

One of the world's most-photographed women in the late 1950s and early 1960s, at the height of her career she was called "the most photographed nude in America".

In the Golden Age of the British pin-up, one of Britain's best exports was June, who came over to the states in 1957 when she was a mere 17 years old. She quickly became a sensation, and still is one of the most recognizable models from the 1950's and 1960's.

She was given the nickname "the bosom" by Playboy founder Hugh Hefner for obvious reasons. In fact, most pictorials of Wilkinson feature her in her most common motif of falling out of whatever top she has on.

Beyond her career as a pin-up, Wilkinson also had acting success in the stage play "Pajama Tops" and a long stint as part of the group Spike Jones and His City Slickers. She even made a cameo in Russ Meyer's early masterpiece The Immoral Mr. Teas as the faceless, bare-breasted woman in the window.

She, like many other glamour models, fell into a series of B-grade movies in the late '60s and 70's. She is now enjoying her cult status as one of the queens of the pin-up.
