Hef has gone to the great grotto in the sky.

He lived a life envied by many, reviled by few, and as iconically American as a moonshot.

The women wanted him, his fame and the fortune.

Says more about women than it does about Hugh.

Was he? Seems like a number of his centerfolds became successful in their own right. I do not know the dirt, as it were. But he has passed on, so let the truth come out.
Where are the lawsuits? Where is the misconduct?
Where is anything justifying your remarks?

Please tell me I'm not the only one that laughed at the "surrounded by loved ones" part...

Loved ones.



RIP, man. You were a legend.

No more sex for Hef. I don't ever remember seeing him without his smoking jacket on. You know his jacket will end up being auctioned off for some hefty amount. R.I.P. Hef

A buisness genius. And most mens hero. He will be missed.

He had said earlier in his career, that if you could sum up the philosophy of Playboy, it would represent a form of anti-Puritanism.

a reply to: [post=22708888]randomtangentsrme[/post Did you watch his tv show? The guy was gross. He did nothing to help women with his magazine except turn them all into sex gods. They were willing. Women didn't have a lot of options in the 50s. He was always men's wet dreams. Not womens-they just used him as a stepping stone. Hollywood was never friendly to women except for the casting chair. We all know this. It doesn't need more explanation. And, oh, yeah-I'm sure you guys read it for the great "Articles."

He also invented a business model that grosses in the billions and billions, internationally.
He changed the world.
We are all Bozo's on this bus.

Most mens hero ? I guess that could be what is one thing wrong with this planet... men looking up to men who sell smutt for fortunes. A zero can't be hero ... just sayin ' ... had no respect for the man or men like him.

I remember when I was a young teenager probably 35 years ago.
I was heading home from somewhere and was cutting through an apartment complex by our house and there was 2 big boxes sitting on the side of a dumpster.
As I was walking by, being a smart ass kid, I kicked one and it didn't budge and damn near broke my toes.
So I opened the box and inside there was dozens of Playboy's...all looked brand new.
I ran home and got my older brother and we drove back and got them lol
There was even some from the early 60s...maybe 125-150 magazines total in the 2 boxes....all in mint condition.
After looking at probably all of them, we took them to a used book dealer and he gave us $200 for the lot.
Memories.....

Ding dong, the pervert's dead. I'm glad we'll hear no more of the swine.

Nor do you have any clue as to “where” he isn’t.

As if “where” is an appropriate metaphysical concept.

But in death, if there be death, I like to think that the lessons one learns during one’s life come to a positive fruition, and informs our next iteration, if there be such.

Do seek to condemn.

Take Care, that might be your next lesson.

Uh, god isn't real and sin is something created by the church so they could sell absolution. Hef was a well liked charismatic fellow who never forced anything on anyone. What is wrong with sex and money? You don't like sex or money? I bet you're a hoot at parties. Nah you're probably not. You prob just point at everyone and judge them because they are less than you.

I have this strange hunch that, now he's dead, he will be implicated in some enormous scandal that he managed to suppress during his lifetime. There was more than a hint of the honeytrap about some of his activities.

More frivolously, I (a) always confused him with Howard Hughes and (b) thought he died ages ago anyway.
