What is Joann Marie Slater’s ‘Bathroom Party’?
Joann Marie Slater has won the first ever Playboy Playmate of the Year Award.
The 39-year-old Australian model and actress was voted into the prestigious prize after her controversial performance in a 2005 video in which she is seen naked in a bathtub with other women, including Playboy Playmates, including her boyfriend, John Travolta.
Ms Slater had been one of the nominees of the 2013 issue of Playboy magazine and had been a winner of the 2014 edition.
In 2005, the Playboy PlayMates were voted into a secret ballot for the award.
The two-minute video, released by the website The PlayMate, showed Ms Slaters naked and partially clothed body with Travolts body exposed in the shower.
Ms slater was forced to wear a gag mask and cover up in a tight bathing suit to prevent the men from seeing her breasts.
The men in the video were filmed undressing and playing with the nude Ms Slator in a pool of water.
The video sparked a massive online backlash against Ms Slate.
Her video went viral, with more than a million views.
The magazine was subsequently forced to remove the video and apologise for the video.
Ms Marie is known for her roles in TV series like Love Island and The Adventures of Lenny Bruce.
The Playmate Award was created to recognise female artists who have been successful on the film, television or stage, or who have shown their talent in the media, music or theatre.
The award is named after the actress Marlene Dietrich, who won the award in 1969.
