What is it about an attractive or intriguing woman that turns an ordinary man into a creative whirlwind? Beautiful women served as a muse for Bob Guccione as an artist and as a photographer. The women that are featured on Filthy Gorgeous have served a muse for photographers from the past and they continue to evoke inspiration for the future generations. All of the women that are given the title, Filthy Muse, are timeless.
Leslie Glass is a Filthy Gorgeous Muse.
Leslie Glass was more than a pretty face and great pair of tits. Glass was a hard worker, model, erotic actress, and animal rights activist. Throughout the 1980′s, Glass manned the most prominent bar in front of the concert stage that frequently featured acts such as Kix, Joan Jett, Ted Nugent, and Guns N’ Roses. Later, she founded and managed a women’s lingerie and bikini dance troupe that was a regular feature and from there she became a feature dancer at Memories Strip Club in Dundalk, Maryland. From 1988 to 1992, Glass traveled to Atlantic City to be a round card girl at boxing matches and was featured in a Playboy pictorial on the job. It was during this time that she attracted the notice of Penthouse magazine and became “Pet of the Month” in February 1992, was in the Penthouse Pet of the Year Playoffs in 1993, and in 1994, at the age of 31, became Penthouse Pet of the Year Runner-Up.
Glass grew up in southwest Baltimore, graduated from Mercy High School, and attended the Maryland Institute College of Art. She modeled for Merry-Go-Round stores and Pimlico Race Course, and was a champion skateboarder who taught the sport to others. In 1982, at the age of 19, Glass began working as a bartender at Hammerjack’s Concert Hall and Nightclub, a famous rock and roll-oriented nightclub in Baltimore, and one of largest and most popular indoor bar venues on the east coast. Glass would frequently dress in sexy clothes, including lingerie, and dance on the bar; she quickly became one of the most popular bartenders.
Leslie Glass was first diagnosed with colon cancer in 1998. After surgery to remove part of the colon and an ovary, she was given two weeks to live. When diagnosed, Glass was already at stage 4 of her cancer, as it had already metastazised to her liver and consumed an ovary. Glass was treated at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center. She was the first person in the United States to receive a new experimental cocktail of chemotherapy drugs. However, the cancer stopped responding to the drugs. Tumor ablation was used to “microwave” tumors on her liver, and she continued to try different chemotherapies throughout the two years she survived after her diagnosis. During this time she continued to work, and made appearances on television and elsewhere to discuss the disease. She fought for two years before succumbing on August 4, 2000, aged 36. According to an obituary, she was “…best known as a Penthouse Pet of the Year Runner-Up and Penthouse International Pet of the Year, model, exotic dancer, Vivid Films adult film star, and founder of Pet-4-Pets, an animal rescue and care organization.”
Although Leslie Glass has died, her memory and her stunning photographs are often displayed in many of the Filthy Gorgeous Auctions.
