We're about to see a whole lot more of Carmen Electra: The model-actress is set to appear in an all-new, 8-page nude pictorial in January's Playboy, a source at the magazine tells PEOPLE.

Electra, 36, first posed for the publication in 1996 – a move that helped transform the Ohio-based girl next door, who was born Tara Leigh Patrick, into an international pin-up star.

The January issue, which marks the 55th anniversary of Playboy magazine, goes on sale Dec. 12.
