NEW YORK, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- Penthouse Magazine declared Texas model Taylor Vixen its 2010 Pet of the Year Tuesday.
The title comes with a year-long contract with Penthouse and a diamond Penthouse Pet of the Year Key necklace, the U.S. publication noted.
Vixen's Pet of the Year pictorial is featured in the January 2010 issue of Penthouse Magazine, available on newsstands Dec. 15.
"Debuting in Penthouse Magazine's special 40th anniversary issue, Taylor Vixen immediately became a favorite among Penthouse readers," the magazine noted in a release. "With her gorgeous natural figure, dark mischievous eyes, and friendly down-home nature, she cannot help but draw people to her."
"I have always loved Penthouse. It's sexy and tasteful, and a place for young women, like me, to express ourselves," the 26-year-old model said in a statement. "I had the best time at my photo shoot, where I was able to bring out both my personality and sexuality at the same time. I loved my photographer, Emma Nixon. My favorite part of the shoot was doing the robot dance at one point. I love to goof around."
