Eesh: Details of Life Inside Hefner's Playboy Mansion Make It Almost Seem Like an 84-Year-Old Satyr Is Paying Young Girls To Live As Hookers In a Run-Down Sleazy Brothel
— Ace

I mean, I'm kidding; of course that's what it is, and has always been.

Still, the details of the thing give it life. It's all pretty shabby.

‘Everything in the Mansion felt old and stale, and Archie the house dog would regularly relieve himself on the hallway curtains, adding a powerful whiff of urine to the general scent of decay.’

Many girls, it seems, endured these living conditions for the chance of becoming a centrefold in Playboy magazine — an invaluable career boost for any glamour model.

Others admitted that they stayed only for the cosmetic surgery to which Hefner treated them as a birthday presents, keeping a running account with a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon.

Legendary lover: Hugh Hefner has a reputation for the high life, yet it seems many of his former 'girlfriends' have become disenchanted with life in the harem

But St James — with big university debts — was more interested in the weekly pocket money which Hefner paid all his girlfriends. ‘Every Friday morning we had to go to Hef’s room, wait while he picked up all the dog poo off the carpet — and then ask for our allowance: a thousand dollars counted out in crisp hundred-dollar bills from a safe in one of his bookcases,’ she says.

‘We all hated this process. Hef would always use the occasion to bring up anything he wasn’t happy about in the relationship. Most of the complaints were about the lack of harmony among the girlfriends — or your lack of sexual participation in the “parties” he held in his bedroom.

‘If we’d been out of town for any reason and missed one of the official “going out” nights [When Hefner liked to parade his girls at nightclubs] he wouldn’t want to give us the allowance. He used it as a weapon.’

Girls living at the house have a strict curfew -- they have to be in early at night (except for two official going-out nights), I guess to tend to Hef, or his other guests.

It's worth a read. Even if you don't think you're interested, you may wind up being interested. Not in a good way.

The whole business is sleazy, of course (porn). I always thought it was odd that Hef would cast Playboy as this sort of upper-class-aspirational lifestyle sort of magazine, with a libertarian philosophy, and get treated as if he wasn't just a pornographer like Bob Guccione. I mean, that's a thin veneer, isn't it? You review some high-end stereo equipment and have articles about nice clothes so you're not sleazy?

Reports like that highlight how an incident or two can be exploded to imply a pattern by an unscrupulous asshole.  Whose indoor pet hasn't shit on the carpet?  Acting like the house is filthy is unfair and reeks of revenge. 

I don't know if the house wasn't disgusting, but this kind of insider tell-all is always suspect.

Hef picks up his own dogshit????

Why doesn't Hefner have the girls pick the dogshit up off the carpet?  They could wear a cute little "sexy french maid" outfit when they did it -- utility plus entertainment!  I know they'd do it for the weekly $1000.

Posted by: shibumi at December 30, 2010 10:11 AM (OKZrE)

43 I've read these allegations regarding the actual Playboy Playmate lifestyle previously within the last year or two.  The one thing that doesn't ring true about this particular story is the part about Quaaludes, which are described as "prescription-only" pills. 

In actuality, Quaaludes haven't even been available by prescription since sometime in the early 1980s: it's now a Schedule 1 substance in the U.S., and from what I hear is not easily available here anymore, even on the black market.

Of course, I suppose with Hefner's money, he can get access to just about anything, even if there are only a few underground labs in Mexico that even make the stuff anymore -- but still, I think either the woman is confused about what kind of pills Hef's handing out, or else the paper is a little sloppy in its fact-checking.

71 I've heard similar stories over the last few years.  I'm too lazy to look this up again, but I understand Hefner doesn't even own the Playboy Mansion anymore, and he's not personally wealthy.  The corporation owns the mansion and lets him live there as an allowance or something. 

A sordid, skeevy sunset to a life lived the same way. 

I don't have much sympathy for the young fame vampires trying to drain his dessicated corpse of the last drops of cash and notoriety-  these ghouls deserve each other.

Well, there is a distinct difference in the type of pictures deployed in the various girlie magazines. Playboy, for example, doesn't make you feel as if you're a doctor studying to become a gynecologist like, say Hustler does. What's the Randall quote from Clerks? "I think I can see her kidneys..." Playboy is definitely in the "soft porn" category (for what it's worth); although you might catch a hint of a pube line, you won't see any blatant cooze in those layouts.

First there is a definite difference between "I can see the toe" PB and say PH "What is that the rising sun?" in taste when dealing with the naked female form. Generally PB has poses which you can find rendered in oil in your favorite art gallery. Second that "other" part of the magazine everyone claims to be interested in amongst polite company is usually a decent read and occasionally quite good.  Take this interview with Stephen King for instance. It is clear that PB does put effort into the content, not just the spreads. Because much harder stuff is available, often for free, the moderate men's mags PB, FHM, Maxim all kind of have to work on keeping the content decent. Like it or not, since the dawn of the internet, content continues to sell those magazines. Where as the harder magazines, PH, Hustler, keep pushing their sexual content to greater extremes to keep selling mags. In perfect fairness you can't place them in the same category as PB.

It was always what it was.  We (well, men of a certain age, like me a and plenty of others) were all beholden to it because it seemed to cool, sexy and contra-cultural. But is was what somebody said it was, upthread. A magazine for 14 year olds to jerk off to.  Jay Leno did a joke about Playboy once, saying that some 18 year old in the head on the "Enterprise" is reading about a centerfolds' "turn-ons", and says to himself, "Yeah, I could get her."

We were all young once, but most of us grew up and realized what an illusion, a chimera, it was. Hefner is not worth the energy of outrage, nor are the stupid girls who put themselves in that situation. They are just high paid whores.  It is just a grotesque picture of grotesque people. It does make the reader seem refreshed and cleaner by comparison.

I disagree here.  Hef started a franchise that used 'art' and 'class' to sell magazines.  He's never shown the insides of a woman, down there, and has always used the beauty of the female body to make millions.  He's far from a 'pornographer' in the current meaning of the word.

The magazine has always been an 'upper class' mag, simply because there were nude women in various, tasteful poses in between the articles and product reviews.  It was 'the thinking man's' magazine.  You could read it on an airplane and not be accosted for it, at one time.

He's no Larry Flint and didn't get into the deep, dark seedy world of hardcore porn, and I respect him for that.  Even the Playboy Channel is only soft core.  Now, that being said, I think he's lost his mind and is ruining the franchise by the day.  I mean, c'mon.  Fucking Bill Mahr is a regular there.  It's GOT to be a cesspool at this point.

Hef gave up running the company long ago. His oldest daughter actually runs the company, and has for awhile. The only thing Hef does for the company is manage the actual nude photos of the magazine. He doesn't even have anything to do with the money end!

Larry Flynt and Uncle Jimmy (his brother with legs) are nothing more than criminals.Gary Burbank (WLW afternoon radio personality) tried to get Larry's  daughter (who campaigns against Flynt, and claimed rape and incest) and Uncle Jimmy to be on the show together, and Jimmy all but threatened to kill her, on the air. I heard it myself and even Burbank was pretty shocked (and he's a pretty loose screw, frankly).

Hefner's not a criminal. He's just a tiresome, grotesque and boring old man. His biggest crime is he's obsolete and really doesn't know it.  The girls get cosmetic surgery, a chance at fame and sex with an octagenarian.  What a life.

Many, many years ago in a quirky little shop in Seattle I saw a terrific t-shirt: it depicted the original banned "Smell The Glove" artwork (the greased, naked woman on all fours with a dog collar around her neck being forced to sniff a glove).

B.S.

He's been showing cooter for decades. You might argue that it's "tasteful cooter", but it's cooter nonetheless.

Playboy did hire some decent writers at one time. Their article on the Waco fiasco was one of the few worthy investigative articles written on the subject. But for the most part their articles were meh.

Funny thing -- the myth of the "I read it for the articles" turned it into a literary magazine so much that THE Ohio State University (the most PC college in America) has all of its editions on microfilm.

Posted by: Ed Anger at December 30, 2010 11:14 AM (7+pP9)

153 I will say, at one time Hef sold the magazine with his "playboy" image. In this day and age, I doubt many of us are really surprised that living in the mansion is not a Cinderella story with sex. I don't know why Hef continues to push this image; at this point it can only be for the image's sake as it marketing usefulness has diminished. But no one was chained to the mansion, apparently they could leave during the day, if they say, wanted to get a job, move out, and live on their own.

In the end, I'm in agreement with Vic. Either these women were so spiteful to a man who gave them room, board, $52K a year, and annual plastic surgery if desired, that they decided they needed to ruin his image; Or they saw capitalistic gain in selling their story and ruining his image; Which they were handsomely paid to maintain. Either way, Hef was willing to pay to maintain his image, these girls were willing to get paid to have sex with him and be eye candy, later to sell him out.

I went to the Naval Academy, our pay for the first year was $50 a month net. It never topped $250 a month for me. Curfew? heh. Rigid rules? heh.

Based on that experience I have solutions to all their complaints.
You're not a prisoner.

Don't like the repair of the mansion? Leave!
Don't like your accommodations? Leave!
Don't like the curfew? Leave!
Don't like going to the same clubs (To which Hef probably has agreements)? Leave!
Don't like having to wait for Hef to hand you your weekly $1K and listen to him bitch about, what about you he dislikes. Leave!
Don't like having sex with Hef? Leave!

Seriously these girls had room and board payed for AND got $52K a year.

I have no trouble identifying the real "victim" in this relationship, and, it isn't the young lady who has to look her benefactor in the eye come payday and admit to herself what she is, and what level she has stooped to for money. Why are they pissed? Not likely because being a bunny isn't a fairy tale, more likely because they hate themselves for having sold themselves in this manner, and are trying to redeem there self esteem by attacking Hef.

I guess that depends on your definition of 'cooter'.  He's never had a pic of a woman spreading her 'lips' that I'm aware of.  She's shown shots from the front and from the back, yes.  But not with any penetration or 'open wide' shots.

160 24 The part I don't get is some of these girls are remarkably beautiful.  They can't find a rich boyfriend instead of sleeping with an 82 year old man to get by?

The general idea seems to be that, by hanging out at the mansion, they're one of Hef's "kept women" until some celebrity who drops by the house decides to keep her for himself.

If they're smart about what they do with their "allowance" and are having Hef pay all the bills for their food, entertainment, and cosmetic surgery, they may be able to sock away something for a rainy day.

If they're not so smart, they end up marrying a guy who screwed up majorly for the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.  (BTW, Kendra, tell Hank "Thanks!" for muffing the onside kick.)

The magazine has been in trouble for a long time. About 10 years ago when I worked for a bank, Playboy was trying to get a line of credit. It was bleeding money so badly that we refused to do it. They kept telling us Hef will personally guarantee the loan. I replied if he has that much money to cover it why does he need our money in the first place? They would have needed Moses to part that much red ink.

I can believe it. 

Their subscriptions for college students are so cheap that they have to be doing it to keep their circulation numbers up.  Around 10 years ago, it was around $10 for a year's worth of magazines when the cover price was about $6.

190 i never understood anybody's obsession with playboy or hef or any of that mess. maybe teeny boys thinking its cool or whatever, doesnt impress me one bit.

a mansion?---fuck a mansion, too much bullshit to worry about maintenance-wise. then you have the lawn care to pay attention to. and fuck paying a squad of lackeys to take care of it for you, ill keep my money.

"OMG HE HAS HOT WOMEN AROUND HIM ALL THE TIME OMGOMG"

---they all look the damn same, and the corny/doofy talk around that place has to reach levels never before seen in dumb-assery.

the drug bill has got to be thru the roof too. gimme a cool chick with a 12 pack and im jus fine.

so no bill maher, i care less about the silly trysts at this place, or your celebrity status. and even less about this old rich idiot's lifestyle.

i like making fun of this stuff just as much as i do stephen hawking....just puts a smile on my face.

201 I saw Hefner and his "girls" at an Olivia showing once.  It was weird - they were all short (Hefner most of all) and in three inches of makeup.  They looked and acted trashy and ugly.  Of course, the whole Olivia scene was weird anyway (and, yeah, the relationship with the girl that took me there didn't last).  A decrepit lifestyle leads to a decrepit man?  Color me shocked, shocked I say!  A man who uses women like so much material for his financial gain treats those that endeavor to live in his home the same way?  Again, shocked!  The fact that this guy is as wealthy as he is says more about us, as a society and a culture, than him.

210 Wow...that article makes it seem like some kind of psychological torture.  Sure, you can blame the girls for being initially superficial and naive, but beyond that it's Hefner's fault.  I mean, the description of everything, the curfew, the infantalizing girly decor, the filth, the begging for money, the strict schedule, the inability to receive outside attention at the clubs, etc.   It all sounds like a prison designed to beat impressionable, insecure women into loving Big Brother.  Don't blame the girls; Hefner should be behind bars.

then I can blame them for not pulling their head our of their ass, having some self esteem using their free time to get a job and leaving.


It all sounds like a prison...Hefner should be behind bars.


Except they could walk out the door at any time they felt like it; no one compelled them to come except their own greed and no one compelled them to stay. It wasn't so much Hef took advantage of them. He just had money, and they were all willing to sell. These were adult women, above the age of consent, apparently under no physical abuse, who made a choice to consort with a known womanizer for money, some later regretted, some later maybe did not. Regardless the decision to do anything was always theirs, they need to take responsibility for their actions.

Not blame Hef for "taking advantage of them"

So let me make sure I understand this....Hefner has lived a life of unmatched luxury and ease, he's visited places I'll never visit, regularly eaten delicacies I might manage to sample once or twice in life if I'm willing to splurge, earned more money than most of us will ever see, and slept with more premium trim than all the commentors in this thread combined ever will...and we're supposed to hold him in contempt now?

Not saying I wouldn't do a few things differently if I were in his house slippers, but yes, I'd like to be in his house slippers.  Still.

Posted by: The Chief at December 31, 2010 06:31 AM (6P/1p)

227 I dunno, Chief. I think I'd rather skip the "premium trim" in favor of a life built alongside good woman, surrounded in her love, forego the "luxury and delicacies" in favor of her good, if occasionally burned, home cooking. At least I wouldn't end up looking like an old man who can't manage to leave the house in anything but his pajamas... Matter of personal taste, I guess.
