Victoria Sianipar

Question: who was the first Indonesian to pose for P'boy?

Answer: Victoria Sianipar. She appeared in the June 1999 Russian edition: one of the most highly sought after and coveted issues of the magazine ever printed. Today, of course, Indonesia has its own (extremely tame) version of the popular magazine. But not everyone is a fan. And in the face of violent threats from the religious fanatics, the magazine has sought sanctuary in the Hindu enclave of Bali. Criminal charges have even been pressed. And its editor faces up to two years in prison. Sad times indeed. I wonder what Victoria would think?
