RIP Hugh Hefner.

Hugh Heffner obit.
Oh, to be at that funeral.......................
Not for the girls.
Hugh rubbed shoulders with many of the most influential people from all over the world in his life.

Rest In Peace, Hugh.

Have made friends in this life.

From the obituary:
By his own account, Hefner had sex with more than a thousand women, including many pictured in his magazine.

Oh please! If your lifetime total is in double digits, you probably are not as happy as you claim to be.

If your lifetime total is in triple digits, or (good grief!!!) quadruple digits, you have a problem.


Is it really fair for one to claim credit for rights, privileges and freedoms that were a result of the sexual revolution, if one's role in the sexual revolution was the objectification of women?


Honestly, I'm not sure whether to type "RIP" or "good riddance".

+1 Angela, and I would go for "good riddance"
And perhaps even "may you rot in he**" Hugh Hefner.

As to those large numbers, you must remember other than the single digits, all of those numbers wanted his money or the publicity his money could purchase. I'm not sure how you categorize swag* sex on a relationship scale.

The Playboy models I knew, including Playmates never spoke ill of him.

SWAG- that's a new definition I always think "Stuff We All Get".
I hav also have had the same experience with former Playboy models. They all thought of him with very high regard.
This is what one friend posted:

I wonder if Hugh liked hares as well.

Yesterday I saw a magpie very eager trying to pick something from the hare's behind.
About 10 minutes the show went on:)

From what I read, Hugh Hefner spent money on the Environment, how much I can't determine, that being said, that Marsh Rabbit was named by someone else in His honor. The fact that He got a rabbit named after Him, that is native to the Florida Keys, and is Endangered, according to the chart, that is not too far from Extinction, that also says someone wanted to give the species some publicity to the rabbits plight, before this species goes the way of the Dodo.

Hares and rabbits are apparently the same species. Didn't know that.
If Florida rabbits are endangered it could be because of other predators.
Such as humans and foxes.

Anyway.
Hugh will be missed by many.

Automobiles run over the rabbits, and our beloved domesticated house cats prey on them as well too, at least cats that are let outside do.
Plus the hefneri breeds slower than other rabbits, 3.7 liters vs 5.7 liters per year.
