If you're thinking about posing for Playboy magazine, don't do it — Holly Madison advises against it!
Now, it may seem like the 35-year-old is being super hypocritical because she did it too, but Holly has a pretty valid reason for not wanting young girls to pose for the nudie mag.
When talking about her new memoir Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, the mother of one opened up about girls asking for advice.

But instead of giving them tips or being supportive, the former Playboy model warns them against the dangers of stripping down to their birthday suit for the cameras.
"Girls talk to me all the time about wanting to pose, but these days I kind of advise against it. It might seem like something fun and glamorous or rebellious and dangerous in your 20s, but guess what? When you're 30 or 40, you're not going to want those pictures floating around.
You don't have control over them—someone else does. They can bring them out of the archives at any time. You don't have creative control over what the pictures look like. It's just something people should think about five times before doing."
That's a pretty good warning — we bet she wishes she knew or thought of those things when she initially started out.
At least now she can use her knowledge to help young girls who are interested in the industry or following in her footsteps!

Holls also went on to talk about advice she would give her younger self if she had the chance to. She said:
"Don't be so desperate. I always felt I had some time bomb ticking and I had to achieve things really fast and I wasn't patient with myself and I didn't have faith in myself to achieve things on my own. I felt branded by the decisions I made and felt kind of stuck. So I would just give myself a talk and let myself know that's not really the case."
Sounds like she regrets not having more faith in herself when she was younger — sad.
Good thing she's learned from those mistakes! Maybe those who read her memoir can learn a few things from Hugh Hefner's ex!
