Candy Loving (born Candis Loving on September 4, 1956 in Oswego, Kansas) is an American model and actress. She was Playboy magazine's POTM for the January 1979 issue, which made her Playboy's 25th Anniversary Playmate. Her centerfold was photographed by Dwight Hooker.
Candy Loving graduated from Ponca City High School in Ponca City, OK and was attending the University of Oklahoma as a journalism major when, in 1978, she submitted her photo to Playboy's 25th Anniversary Great Playmate Hunt. Her husband, Ron Prather, urged her to compete for the anniversary issue.
Upon winning, she became part of a whirlwind promotional tour that included a second pictorial for the August 1979 issue. Hugh Hefner has credited Candy with helping to revitalize the image of the Playmate as the "girl next door".
She eventually earned her bachelor's degree and pursued a graduate degree in human relations. She moved to Florida in 1984 and still lives there with her husband and daughter. She now works in the health insurance industry. In addition to her Bond girlesque name, she is notable for her large breasts and wide intermammary sulcus (the bit in between the breasts).
