Whether tango, quickstep or waltz – on “Let’s Dance” Patricija Ionel regularly makes her celebrity dance partners look good. The professional dancer is now making a solo appearance for the men’s magazine “Playboy”.

Together with gymnast Philipp Boy, professional dancer Patricija Ionel is currently once again inspiring on the RTL dance show “Let’s Dance”. Now the 28-year-old adorns the cover of the April issue of the men’s magazine “Playboy”. The Lithuanian model proudly presents her naked body.

“For me, Playboy is not about undressing, it’s about showing the woman naturally and naked – the way she was created. I think the most beautiful dress a woman can wear is her own skin,” explains Ionel dem Magazine. It is important to her that every woman can do what she wants without having to justify herself. One should stop “criticizing them for their decisions”.

She herself remembers the birth of her son and that she appeared again on “Let’s Dance” just three weeks later. After that, she had to deal with many critical comments like “You’re not a good mother”. “My baby traveled to every rehearsal. I breastfed and really gave my all. Of course it wasn’t easy, but I made a conscious decision to do so. I ask myself: Why aren’t men asked the same questions?”

The 28-year-old also reveals that she appreciates it when a man is “clever” and has “something in his head”. “I like men who would do anything for their wife, but still like to take the lead.” Her husband Alexandru Ionel, who is also a professional dancer on “Let’s Dance”, should fully meet these criteria. The two would not consider themselves opponents on the RTL show. “We support each other and help each other with the choreographies. We do everything to ensure that it looks beautiful in the end and that our celebrities shine.”
