What's with Hef and his seven girlfriends?

Are they really his girlfriends or is it just for looks? (I notice that there will be a new one every once in awhile but for the most part they stay (and look) the same.)

If they ARE real, how does he manage it? One-A-Day? All at once? Viagra?

Would any of you guys want seven girlfriends? Remember that means seven birthdays, seven times the PMS, etc.

… maybe he needs seven so that by the time their turn comes around in the rotation, they’re so desperate for sex that they’ll do him?

I’ve assumed that for the past few decades, the girlfriends were mostly just for show, but then again, if anybody is going to have access to the latest info on geriatric sex practices…

Since he is obviously a miracle worker to simply HAVE seven girlfriends, I’m sure he has no other problems.

I say he’s in cahoots with the devil, myself.

Tina Fey on SNL had a great riff on the 7 girlfriends. I wish I could remember more of it, but she did mention something about each women taking turns and “praying to God for the Viagra to wear off.”

I recall seing an interview with him where he mentioned Viagra, and that’s frankly all I want to know about his sex life.

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).

Hey, a guy can dream a little can’t he?

How does that old saying go?

“Money hath charms to lure the savage breast”?

I’m sure everybody involved is getting something they want out of it.

And Plnnr, this year I’m going to go naked wearing a pair of roller skates - I’m going as a pull toy.

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.

LOL

Imagine having seven girlfriends, and all having periods simultaneously!

I would probably be afraid to go and look for an eighth - what if she is also on the exact same cycle???

Why seven girlfriends?

– one for each day of the week. Maybe they have the days tattooed on their rumps.

– It’s like the Seven Dwarfs – Happy, Sleepy, Sleazy, Dopey, Bashful, Grumpy, and Doc.

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).
