This week’s Facetime features spicy amateur Victoria Marquez. What does the Playboy brand represent to you?

When I think of Playboy I think of the modern, strong, confident, independent woman.

* Do you draw inspiration from any past Playmates? *

I recently found out that Playmate of the Year 2013 Raquel Pomplun is Mexican, and that really surprised me because I’m Mexican as well. I think she’s the first Mexican woman ever to become Playmate of the Year. I thought that was pretty cool. So that’s something that might set you apart from other models on our site?

It’s funny, because I’m Mexican, but people can rarely tell. They can never guess my ethnicity; I always get Caucasian or French or Italian. Tell us the funniest thing that has ever happened to you on set.

I was doing a boy-girl still, one of those black-and-white sexual, sensual, romantic types of shoots, and we were changing positions for the photo and I accidentally kicked the guy in the nose. I made him bleed pretty badly. I felt terrible the entire day! I didn’t injure him too bad, but it was definitely awkward after that. In your behind-the-scenes video you mention getting picked up by women while working as a bartender. What is the best and worst pickup line ever used on you?

The worst was when a girl told me I had beautiful armpits. The best one is when a woman asked me if I was into girls. I said, “For the most part no, I’m straight.” She said, “Give me one night and I will turn you the other way,” which I thought was cute. It was flirtatious but not too up front. It made me giggle when she said that. How does a man successfully pick up a woman?

Basically, it’s all about chivalry. Chivalry is what catches my attention, as we know it’s something that’s becoming more and more rare. I think it really stands out when a guy takes it upon himself to open the car door for you and pull out your chair when you’re sitting down for dinner. I also feel like a sense of humor is very important, especially if the social situation is awkward, if the guy is nervous or he finds the girl is timid. I find a sense of humor a great icebreaker. What is your biggest turnoff?

I find it a huge turnoff when a guy gets too drunk on a first date. Probably my biggest pet peeve is when they check out other girls in front of you; I think that’s a major no-no. What drives you wild in the opposite sex?

Confidence is definitely a plus. I love a man that takes care of his body. I’m at the gym twice a day, five days out of the week, so I always appreciate when a guy can relate. Works out, eats healthy, doesn’t do drugs and doesn’t drink. That always draws my attention and turns me on in a man.

{“pbembedwidget”:“video”,“id”:“6944”} What is your favorite piece of lingerie?

My crotchless panties, of course! When do you feel most sexy?

I feel sexiest after a workout. It really helps to clear my mind and it gives me a power trip, a lot more confidence, and I really enjoy seeing myself all sweaty. I look even better than I did an hour prior to my workout. Which is probably why it’s so addictive for me, because it’s when I feel my best.

* Do you have any naughty vices? *

I’m a compulsive shopper. I’m the kind of girl that has 15 to 30 dresses in the closet with the price tag still on them, but for some crazy reason I keep feeling compelled to buy more. Where can we find you when you’re not modeling?

I was attending university back home in El Paso, Texas, but I left and moved out to L.A. I do stay very busy with modeling. Yesterday I went into Universal Studios for a couple of different films they will be working on next year, so I’m hoping they can squeeze me in somewhere. I think my chances are pretty good based on what I was told yesterday, so I’m crossing my fingers on that.
