Hustler recently obtained these exclusive pictures of Shane and Sia Barbi, a/k/a the Barbi Twins, shot by Shane's husband, actor Ken Wahl (Wiseguy). Barbi Twins insider Scott Franklin supplied us with these kinky photographs and agreed to give our readers juicy details that have never been revealed—until now.
The Barbi Twins first hit the scene in the early '90s, when they appeared in Playboy and in their best-selling calendars. With their genetically identical large breasts, blond hair and shapely butts, Shane and Sia became instant sensations, attracting the attention of some of the world's most rich and powerful men. Prince William reportedly kept a Barbi Twins poster on his wall. Blake Edwards wanted the twins to star in a sequel to his film 10, entitled 20. John Kennedy Jr. and Donald Trump both pursued the girls. Even Saddam Hussein has been alleged to be a huge Barbi Twins fan.
The identical sisters recently admitted on The Howard Stern Show that Wahl, who has been romantically linked to Traci Lords and various other sexpots, takes sexual turns with each of the Barbis. Franklin insists, however, that the sisterly love goes far beyond what they told Stern.
While these photographs illustrate that Ken enjoys looking at the nude bodies of his wife and sister-in-law, Franklin says that when the camera is off, the twin-on-twin action becomes much more explicit. In the past, the twins have denied lezzing out on each other, joking that they have higher standards and that it would be like masturbating. But Franklin, who has known Shane and Sia for years as both friends and business associates, insists that Ken and the busty duo do indeed engage in kinky threeways.
At first, Franklin claims, Sia would only have sex with Wahl when Shane wasn't present. However, the girls, who learned to kiss by practicing on each other and experienced their first ménage à trois with a runway model in Europe, wanted to please Ken further by performing incestuous sex acts in front of him. "Ken loves to watch them together," says Franklin. "In order to make Ken happy, the girls decided to bring Sia into the act. Ken sits and watches as the girls warm up on each other—kissing, touching, digital stimulation. It excites [the girls] to excite him; so they'll do anything to keep him satisfied. If that means that they have to do oral, they'll do oral. They use sex toys on each other while Ken watches."
Professional belly dancers before they became famous pinup models, the Barbi Twins utilize their unique skills and elaborate costumes in the bedroom. "Ken likes them to belly dance for him," says Franklin. "It always ends up that Shane does a dance in Ken's face with her crotch, and Sia gives him a blowjob. They're all three in bed together. It's one happy family."
According to our source, sometimes the girls engage in various forms of role-playing, in which one of them pretends to be a dog. Other times, they activate their Barbi Twins powers, and one takes the shape of a cowboy while the other assumes the form of a horse. Shane and Sia also enjoy sadomasochistic scenarios. "In real life, Shane is the aggressor and Sia is the submissive," says Franklin, "but when they role-play, Sia likes to be the dominant, and Shane likes to be the submissive. They've got a nice little collection of stuff—whips and toys—that they like to use on each other."
The twins sometimes add to the fun by bringing home dancers they meet in strip clubs.
But things weren't always so happy in Barbi Twins Land. The girls suffered from eating disorders for most of their lives, and instant fame pushed them even deeper into the world of bulimia. In 1996, Sia had to be rushed to the hospital after she overdosed on laxatives. Since then, the sisters have managed to turn their lives around. Each Barbi received a master's degree in nutrition, and in 2000, the two released the book Dying to Be Healthy, an "anti-diet" diet book that details their eating-disorder battles.
In fact, one of the twins' seemingly sapphic activities is actually performed in the name of health: The recovering bulimics insert their fingers into each other's vaginas (and their own), then taste the juices in order to determine if they are in good health. The twins are on a strict diet of raw fruits, nuts and vegetables, and they believe that if their pussies taste sweet, like oranges, they are eating correctly. The girls also apply the finger method to determine if a girl they pick up is healthy enough to have sex with.
The Barbis' taste for the fairer sex may actually be genetic. The girls' late father was a born-again Christian Republican, but their mother is a lesbian psychotherapist.
The elder Barbi, a former Miss Ohio and Miss America runner-up, divorced her husband when the twins were two years old, and is rumored to have been romantically linked with Shane and Sia's godmother, Dusty "Son of a Preacher Man" Springfield. Ma Barbi also had an affair with a well-known actress, of whom Franklin will only say that she starred in a television cop drama during the late '70s and early '80s. (Luckily, she is neither Cagney nor Lacey.)
Following in her mother's footsteps, Sia is currently romantically linked to a female television star. Although Franklin says that it would blow people's minds if they ever learned the actress's identity, he refuses to reveal her name because she's in the closet and married.
Before they were household names, the Barbis shared another man, a well-known athlete (they won't say who). The girls would switch off so that the sports figure thought he was only dating one girl. He eventually found out that he was dating twins, and instead of realizing that he had hit the sexual equivalent of the daily double, the moron was angry that he had been duped.
If the foolish jock is out there looking at this double-your-pleasure, double-your-fun pictorial (while hitting himself in the head), hopefully, this will be a lesson to him and anyone else confronted with a similar situation: It is better to have had a threeway with identical twins and lost them than to never have had a threeway with twins at all.
