Debbie Zullo 8 by 10 Penthouse Pet glamour publicity photograph with her bio on Penthouse letter head. Background:
"What turns me on the most is turning on a man," says lovely Debbie Zullo, whose dark beauty envelops you like a strong perfume. "I love sex. In bed I'll do anything for my man - dress up, playact, whatever is fun and new, whatever leads us into exploring the intensity of our feelings." Our Pet lives in comparative privacy in Los Angeles, where her 36-22-36 frame can soak up the sun's golden rays and her spirit can run free. Debbie has strong views on anything that affects her life, including women's liberations. "I don't think it's right," says our raven-tressed Pet. "I think it defies nature. It tries to take away those things a woman is meant to be. Men should be strong, but that doesn't mean their women should be weak. I don't want to compete with a man; I want to love and comfort him." Debbie also has definite ideas on what she wants that man to be. "I like my man to be handsome in a sexy, European kind of way - strong on the outside with a little-boy vulnerability. And his eyes are very important. You can read a man's soul through his eyes." She enjoys her career as a fashion model. Her Penthouse debut, however, marks the first time she's posed au natural. "It was a little scary at first, but the photographer was fantastic. After I relaxed, it was wonderfully satisfying. Background:
Penthouse magazine began publication in 1965 in England and in North America in 1969, an attempt to compete with Hugh Hefner's Playboy. Guccione offered editorial content that was more sensational than that of Playboy, and the magazine's writing was far more investigative than Hefner's upscale emphasis, with stories about government cover-ups and scandals. Writers such as Craig S. Karpel, James Dale Davidson and Ernest Volkman, as well as the critically acclaimed Seymour Hersh, exposed numerous scandals and corruption at the highest levels of the United States Government.

The magazine was founded on humble beginnings. Due to Guccione's lack of resources, he personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. Without professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. Guccione would sometimes take several days to complete a shoot.

As the magazine grew more successful, Guccione openly embraced a life of luxury; his former mansion is said to be the largest private residence in Manhattan at 22,000 square feet (2,000 m2). However, in contrast to Hugh Hefner, who threw wild parties at his Playboy Mansions, life at Guccione's mansion was remarkably sedate, even during the hedonistic 1970s. He reportedly once had his bodyguards eject a local radio personality who had been hired as a DJ and jumped into the swimming pool naked.

The magazine's pictorials offered more sexually explicit content than was commonly seen in most openly sold men's magazines of the era; it was the first to show female pubic hair, followed by full-frontal nudity and then the exposed vulva and anus. Penthouse has also, over the years, featured a number of authorized and unauthorized photos of celebrities such as Madonna and Vanessa Lynn Williams. In both cases, the photos were taken earlier in their careers and sold to Penthouse only after Madonna and Williams became famous. In the late 1990s, the magazine began to show more "fetish" content such as urination, bondage and "facials." Featured Video:
