Playboy's Hugh Hefner dead at 91

There's some truth to the old line that people read Playboy for the articles. Some of the most celebrated writers in American literature got their starts there

By 1953 he had saved US$8,000 with which to put the first issue of Playboy together.

"RIP to the legendary Hugh Hefner!". While serving his country Hef contributed cartoons for the Army's newspaper and was honorably discharged in 1946.

Hefner was known for taking a progressive approach to sexuality through politics, culture, literature, and humor. They divorced in 1959 after a decade of marriage.

The Queen of Blues Dinah Washington introduces her husband Dick "Night Train" Lane to Chicago society at a party thrown by Hugh Hefner, publisher of Playboy. He was 91 years old.

He spent the last few years of his life as a shrivelled shell of himself, still surrounded by very pretty women and still wearing a lounge suit. They officially divorced in 2010.

While that might sound like a good idea coming from Anderson, it's much more upsetting than anything else. That same month, she was on the cover of Playboy to announce "Mrs. Crystal". But mostly, Hefner was a trailblazer of progressivism at a time when America needed it most.

Sherlyn Chopra also took to social media to express her feelings about the demise of the icon.

In the process, Playboy became the largest-selling and most influential men's magazine in the world. He coined the terms Playmate, Playboy Mansion, and Playboy Bunny for his brand and also created the immediately recognizable Playboy symbol, the bunny. "U are a class act and I will always have gratitude for your kindness".

"You said the magazine was about a girl like me", she said. "I can't begin to describe how excited I am to receive this honor and be given the opportunity to represent Playboy as its first Mexican-American Playmate of the Year", the 25-year-old from Tijuana, Mexico said in a statement at the time.

To women, he was gross and lame, a relic of the kind of slobbery sexism that rightfully belongs in the grave. In an age of sexual repression, social conservatism, and prudishness, Hefner sought to liberate America's strict attitudes.

Marquardt also expressed her condolences on Twitter Thursday.

"When I got to Cozumel, on Monday afternoon, everybody on the island with any clout in the tourism business was half-mad with excitement at the idea of having a genuwine, real-life 'PLAYBOY writer' in their midst", he wrote. His relationship with them lasted just two years.
