Hugh Hefner dies
« on: September 28, 2017, 13:15 »
Hugh Hefner, American founder of the international adult magazine Playboy, has died at the age of 91.
Playboy Enterprises Inc said he passed away peacefully at home in Los Angeles, from natural causes.
Hefner began publishing Playboy in his kitchen in 1953. It became the largest-selling men's magazine in the world, shifting seven million copies a month at its peak.

Someone used to bring in a copy of Playboy when I worked shifts for BP and it's a surprisingly highbrow magazine. Very in depth interviews with intellectuals of the day and excellent cartoons.  The pictures were quite good too.   :o:

I'm surprised quite how a sexist endeavour has been celebrated.

Maybe, but times need to change - we should see this publication for what it is.

That said compared to the internet...

I think it was really quite tame, by comparison.

There were far more explicit magazines on sale at the time.  At least that's what I've been told.  :o:

Some were kept very Private.  Others could not spell 'Colour'.
