Apparently this is from a 1968 issue of Playboy magazine.
I like Hef. I don't question his morals and I definitely do not want to emulate the man, but I have a certain amount of respect for him (more or less). He never pretended to be some kind of saint. He put it all out there and lived the life many men (at least during the 1960s-70s) could only dream of.How do you perceive Hefner.
I think he was - but he kind of admitted it too. He even said he began smoking a pipe strictly for his image. He could be called a marketing genius IMO. He defined himself as the brand and the brand was "cool".he struck me as nothing but a poseur
This is true.I heard Hef gave up the briar a while back, like somewhere around the 80s.
Live and let live guys and gals.I have no qualms with Hugh. Playboy is not without controversy, but became a smashing success with high quality writing and of course popular photos of naked women. I see no issue with that.
