Early life and career

As a child born and raised in the former Soviet Union, Zdrok listened to Voice of America on her father's clandestine radio and diligently studied English with the hope of one day coming to America. In 1989, at the age of 16, she was honored as the first Soviet teenager allowed to come to the U.S. as a foreign exchange student.

Zdrok graduated from Pensacola Junior College in Florida at age 17 and West Chester University in Pennsylvania at age 18 with a B.A..[1] She earned a J.D. degree from the Law School at Villanova University and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Hahnemann Medical School.[2] She aimed to specialize in the "area where law and psychology intersect" and originally intended to become a jury consultant. She later completed a post-doctoral qualification in sex therapy at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

Zdrok was crowned Philadelphia's "Best Beauty" in August 1994. She was later chosen as a Playboy Playmate of the Month in October 1994. In an interview, Zdrok claimed she would have been selected Playmate of the Year over Julie Lynn Cialini except for false rumors Zdrok said were circulated about her.[3] She has appeared in videos, movies, talk shows and magazines.

Zdrok posed for Penthouse magazine for their June 2002 issue as the Pet of the Month. In 2004, at the age of 30, she was named Penthouse Pet of the Year. She is the second woman, after Linn Thomas, to be both a Playboy Playmate and a Penthouse Pet.

As of mid-2007, Zdrok is involved in writing the books The Naked Truth: Confessions of Centerfolds and Those Who Love Them, about the centerfold industry, and a book on the psychology of sexual fantasy. In addition to writing a monthly column in Penthouse magazine she has just had her new books "Anatomy of Pleasure" and "Dr. Z on Scoring: How to Pick Up, Seduce and Hook Up With Hot Women" published.

On February 29, 2008, Zdrok appeared as a guest on The Opie and Anthony Show.

Personal life

In January 2001, her husband, Alexander Zdrok, sued her for monetary damages under the agreement, which Victoria now claimed was invalid. She also sought to seal the trial, but the court declined to do so. She appealed and lost this issue. On December 9, 2003, she settled with her husband for US$50,000. Afterwards, her ex-husband’s lawyer, Elliot Goldberg, expressed disappointment over not being able to reveal intimate details about Victoria Zdrok.[4]

In March 2004, after Victoria Zdrok was named Penthouse Pet of the Year, Alexander Zdrok again sued to overturn the most recent settlement. The judge chastised him for filing the suit.[5]
