New York, NY- January 25, 2011 - Tanyka Renee and some of the gorgeous ladies of the Lingerie Football League are leaving their shoulder pads, cleats and uniforms in the locker room as they appear in a sexy 8-page All-Star nude pictorial in Playboy's February issue. (February issue on newsstands and online at www.playboydigital.com now, with additional photos available at www.playboy.com/LFL).
The following players show off their toned physiques in the seductive pictorial, which was shot by Playboy photographer Arny Freytag:
Tanyka Renee (Philadelphia Passion)
Ashley Helmstetter (Miami Caliente)
Chelsie Jorgensen (Seattle Mist)
Nadia Larysa (Chicago Bliss)

Vanessa Sanchez (San Diego Seduction)
Mikayla Wingle (Tampa Breeze)
The Lingerie Football League, which originated in 2004, now has 10 teams in 10 different cities and the games are broadcast on MTV2. Tanyka and some of the featured players explain the league is a far cry from the girly powder puff games many imagine. "We are tougher than the guys because we do it with less padding," says Tanyka Renee. "People think it's just a bunch of prissy girls playing two-hand touch," says Vanessa Sanchez. However, she explains that's a misconception: "We like to look hot, but we like to hit people, too." Adds Ashley Helmstetter: "It's real athletes playing real football...It's not just inexperienced models running around pretending to tackle one another."
The two conference winners of the Lingerie Football League are set to meet in the eighth annual Lingerie Bowl LIVE on Super Bowl Sunday (February 6) on Pay-Per-View at 8pm ET. View Behind the scenes with The Lingerie Football League and Playboy.
