Playboy’s buxom models were the objects of millions of men’s fantasies as Hefner challenged what he derided as America’s “Puritanical” attitudes toward sex.
For decades, he was the pipe-smoking, silk-pajama-wearing center of a constant fantasy party at Playboy mansions in Chicago and then in Los Angeles.
Hefner was sometimes characterized as an oversexed Peter Pan as he kept a harem of young blondes that numbered as many as seven at his legendary Playboy Mansion. This was chronicled in “The Girls Next Door,” a TV reality show that aired from 2005 through 2010.
"I’m never going to grow up,"Hefner said in a CNN interview when he was 82. “Staying young is what it is all about for me. Holding on to the boy and long ago I decided that age really didn’t matter and as long as the ladies … feel the same way, that’s fine with me.”
Hefner’s next-door neighbor, Daren Metropoulos, bought the Playboy Mansion » in August for $100 million. Hefner reportedly agreed to the sale on the condition that Metropoulos would allow him to live out the rest of his life there.

His lifestyle:

His mansion:

A life well lived!

Then he did this! Maisha nikujipanga my frens

He married and divorced twice and finally decided he would lead a happier life by being a bachelor. He died at 91 I thought bachelors die young. He sold the playboy mansion for $100 million on condition that he will continue living in it until he died. What a deal?

There is no formula on how one should live

Brilliant businessman, he made porn to be main stream and commercialized it

Cc georgematinaShit!

Rest in peace Hef.

i once mused if he inspected all those split beavers he published. may he find happiness in his next life…
