The first thing we notice about Mia, our sexy Pet of the Month, is that her apartment radiates the same warmth and charm that she does. But those fluffy toys scattered around the room and that kittenish smile of hers belie her true sophistication.

At just 19, Mia is discovering that part of being a woman is knowing when to play the vamp and when to play the innocent, little girl. The coquettish student enjoys university life because of the freedom it brings to explore her wilder side. “Living away from home for the first time has allowed me to really explore my sexuality,” she grins.
Mia, who moved from a regional area to the big smoke, continues to feel awestruck at times, but she loves the fact that in a city of millions she can slip into her “bad girl” persona without being judged.
“I may look sweet and innocent, but no matter what anyone says, there is not a woman in the world who doesn’t enjoy exercising the power of her sexuality. I can be sexually assertive if I want, or I can be quiet, demure and vulnerable; that’s the real me, of course!”
Mia plans to travel when she finishes her studies, but the backpacker routine is not for her; she wants to find a man who will sweep her off her feet and take her to places she’s never been before.
As for the next few years, Mia will be expanding the boundaries of her experience. “I figure that posing for Australian Penthouse is a good place to start, don’t you?”
Indeed we do!
