I hope you’re not eating your lunch right now, because you’ll probably lose it after this one. Hugh Hefner, Mr. Playboy himself, has revealed that he’s slept with over 1,000 women. Gag me. In an interview with Esquire, the 86-year-old said that while he’s now married to 26-year-old Crystal Harris and plans to remain faithful, he had to make sure he “kept his hand in” (I don’t want to think about what) when he was single.
“How could I possibly know? Over a thousand, I’m sure,” the mogul says of the number of ladies he’s taken to bed. “There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn’t married. You have to keep your hand in.”
Nope. I mean, I know Hugh Hefner wasn’t always old, but he has always been a bit skeevy, hence the founding of Playboy to begin with. He pays women to live in his house and get on top of him when he wants a little action. If that doesn’t seem weird to you, then we grew up in very different ways. On the other hand, the Playboy bunnies seem pretty happy making bank and riding an old dude and my feminist side doesn’t look down upon sex workers, so everyone knock yourselves out, I guess. But I still think it says something when your own wife – 60 years your junior – would rather play board games than be intimate with you.
