Pamela Horton was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for October 2012. Born in Whittier, California, her family moved to Wichita, Kansas, when she was nine years old. Pamela attended Wichita State University for two years with hopes of becoming a children’s art therapist. She plans to return one day.
While modeling pays the bills, Pamela’s true passion is video games. At age five her dad exposed her to Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on the SNES. She was hooked as soon as she started playing. Her interest grew beyond Zelda and led to a fixation with Pokémon. While Pamela considers herself a Nintendo girl at heart, she also plays games from all different consoles and genres, including Assassin’s Creed, God of War and Devil May Cry.
In 2005 her brother introduced her to massively multiplayer online games through Final Fantasy XI Online. This led to her love affair with the genre. Pamela spends most of her gaming time playing League of Legends and World of Warcraft. Fans can visit her website to find her username and play alongside her online. She says one of her biggest challenges is convincing her fans that she is a true gamer.
Pamela hopes her love of gaming will extend beyond simply playing. She aspires to work as a character designer for a prominent video game studio. She’s had a lifelong obsession with art. She originally got into modeling as an extension of this passion. She said, “I think the human body is God’s greatest artistic creation, so I have always been totally comfortable posing nude. I see myself—and everybody else—as a piece of art.”
Pamela even treats herself as a canvas. She has two tattoos on her left leg just above the ankle. Her first tattoo is the number 13 in Japanese, which she believes is her lucky number. Her other tattoo is of a ninja in honor of her Japanese heritage.
Since becoming a Playmate, Pamela has established herself as a professional host and online personality. She’s even tried her hand at acting. Pamela is also unique for being one of the few openly bisexual Playmates.
