Meet Amateur Christina Ripple, a licensed cosmetologist from Washington state. She’s got brown hair, bright blue eyes and curves in all the right places. “I was born in Enumclaw, Washington,” she says, “and I had a difficult upbringing. My parents divorced when I was young, and I lived with my grandparents until I was about nine. After that I lived with my dad and stepmom. I always had to work hard for the things I wanted in life – I had my first job when I was sixteen, and I had to have two or three jobs at a time.” She got a job at a bar and put herself through cosmetology school, and now she’s a pro, doing hair, makeup and skincare full time.
As a cosmetologist, Christina always looks good. “I always have my hair and makeup done,” she says, “and I dress well every day.” For a Washington girl, she’s got a Florida tan, and it’s not without effort. “The weather in Washington is pretty lousy,” she says. “It rains all the time, and I love the sun. Whenever there’s a break in the clouds, I’m on the deck in my bathing suit.” Her clients keep her busy, but when she’s not working, she hangs out with her family and friends. “I go hard with the guys,” she says, laughing. “riding quad, playing paintball, and generally expecting the unexpected. And I go shopping and clubbing with the girls – we get ready at my place, blasting music and dancing naked around the house.”
Christina has been modeling for five years, but this is her first time posing nude. “I’ve always wanted to pose for Playboy,” she says. “It’s a big accomplishment for me. A woman’s body is a beautiful thing, and I was proud to display mine for Josh Ryan.” Her pictorials got her a lot of attention, but Christina is single, and she’s not ready to settle down. “I’ve been single for a while now,” she says. “I love it – I can be who I want to be and do what I want to do. I have close family and friends, and I don’t feel like I’m missing anything.” She likes guys who are plain, simple and non-judgmental, with great personalities to boot. “And good manners,” she says. “There’s nothing sexier than a man who would do anything for a woman.”
