Playboy model goes on naked dive with deadly sharks in jaw-dropping snaps

Marisa Papen enjoys adding an element of danger to her photoshoots.

The Playboy model has risked arrest by stripping off in some of the holiest destinations in the world.

And now, she’s risked the wrath of sharks by diving in the buff.

The 28-year-old ditched her wetsuit to go diving with the sea predators off the coast of Hawaii.

But while the experience would fill many with fear, she thought it was a “peaceful” one.

Marisa said: “It was one of the most peaceful experiences of my life being with the sharks.”

She continued: “Before I jumped off the boat, I was meditating… and preparing myself to tap into their energy.

“I had no clue what that would feel like since I had never swum with them before.

“I wasn’t going to wear any goggles because I didn’t want to be able to read their movements, I just had to trust I would be okay.

“After a couple of dives I realised that their energy is actually so subtle, they are so at one with the ocean, I could barely feel their vibration.

“We dived around 20 times in the span of around 45 minutes. We didn’t want to bother them too long.”

While many of the fish she swam with were harmless, she did come across a tiger shark during her dive.

These are some of the deadliest sharks in the world – but Marisa wasn’t scared.

She added: “Being in their presence, I felt complete serenity.

“People ask me if I was scared, but actually, I was not scared at all.

“They were Galapagos sharks. There were also a couple of reef sharks around and one tiger shark that swam up to us, we didn’t get to photograph him though, he was in and out.”

Marisa hopes the photoshoot makes an artistic statement about taboos.

She explained: “The message is all about breaking stigmas and taboos, nudity is seen as bad in our society, and so are sharks.

“Over the years, sharks have gained a bad reputation because of the film industry.

“I wanted to challenge viewers by looking at these magnificent creatures with a different eye.”

Marisa is selling the stunning photos in her Earth Family Calendar.

She wants them to represent “an intertwining of two completely worlds, coexisting in harmony”.

The Playboy star added: “I’m inspired by everything I observe in nature. And being in my natural state makes it so much easier to connect with the natural elements.

“I’m driven by a will for a better planet, one of unity, equality and beauty.”
