Hugh Hefner died wednesday. He was 91. The father of Playboy Magazine, Clubs, and Hotels. He was part of the American sexual revolution that began in the late 1950’s.
Hefner frequently commented that he never engaged in sex till he was married at the age of 22. Eventually, he had sex available to him anytime of any day at his famous Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
He did not have to kill himself in order to enjoy sex. He was not of the Muslim faith. He had sex with regularity instead of waiting for that death which promised Muslim followers 17 or more virgins in the after life.
Hefner fought the puritanism which existed.
Like doctors refusing to provide contraceptives to young women. He also decried Hollywood portraying married couples sleeping in separate beds.
I enjoyed two items Hefner provided.
Playboy Magazine as a young man. Loved looking at the nude pictures. Especially, the centerfold.
Fifteen years later, visiting his New York and Miami Playboy Clubs. Clubs smart. People smart. A great special. A small filet mignon and a drink for under $5.
May he rest in peace.
I will end here today. There was much more. I did a lengthy 800 word 10 item blog. Along the way unknowingly, I lost wi-fi. My land line, also. Comcast, where are you? What did you do? I have redone the first item of the blog. The rest somewhere in never never land.
I apologize, but I do not have sufficient time to go back and redo the other nine items. Forgive me. Only so many hours in the day. Especially today. I have much on my plate.
Enjoy your day!
