Oh come on, there may be something going on, but it’s got to be mostly for show. And I think that’s fine, I mean it’s Hef’s job to project that image. It’s no surprise that there are women who are willing to be in his little entourage, if it puts them in the pages of Playboy, and maybe eventually gets them modelling jobs or whatever.
Even stranger is that his ex-wife still lives in a guest house on the grounds of the Playboy Mansion.
Everyone seems to be enjoying the setup, so I say more power to all of them (even though I’d appreciate getting my invitation to the Halloween party earlier than I did this year - I don’t know what I’m going to wear).
Hefner has openly admitted that he uses Viagra to maintain his sex life. As for his “harem” - personally if it was me, I’d try for a little more variety; those girls might as well be cloned. As for what their roles are, I’ve read that one of these women is Hefner’s main companion, the others are partly for show and, according to Hefner, recreational sex.
That is exactly it. I mean COME ON. If you were a filthy rich guy, you would have women climbing the walls just to be with you and try to mooch off you as much as they could. Of course his reputation does help (but only a very little bit IMHO).
