India Allen, Miss December 1987, was later named Playmate of the Year 1988. She was born India Juliana Orban in Portsmouth, Virginia. India’s mother encouraged her to try out for Playboy when she turned 18, but she wasn’t interested until she met Playmate Monique St. Pierre while shooting a movie. The two became friends, and Monique took India in for some test shots.
India followed up her Playboy pictorials by appearing in several Playboy video documentaries. She went on to act in several movies, including Under Crystal Lake, Wild Cactus, Seduce Me: Pamela Principle 2, and Silk Degrees. She wrote and produced the 2000 movie The Rowdy Girls.
India told Playboy her turn-ons include “washboard stomachs, smart men, animals, new Corvettes, and ‘65 Mustang convertibles.” Her turnoffs: “Hurt animals, drugs, rude people, traffic, and smog.” India described her ideal weekend as “taking a motorcycle trip up the coast of California and staying in Carmel (paradise!).”
