In light of the newly released documentary Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist, and Rebel, the octogenarian icon of men everywhere sat down with the NY Daily News who asked him this hard-hitting question:
What do you say to women who say you objectify the female form?
The notion that Playboy turns women into sex objects is ridiculous. Women are sex objects. If women weren’t sex objects, there wouldn’t be another generation. It’s the attraction between the sexes that makes the world go ’round. That’s why women wear lipstick and short skirts.
Did this even need to be asked? The man claims to have bedded over 2,000 women in his day. Does that say great monogamist and lover of women to you? However, I don’t disagree with him. As women, we have a great power in our hands. We can use our feminine charms to get what we want, when we want it. So many people (mostly bitter females) say Hef is a pig, a pervert, or a pimp. I say he’s a genius. Women have always used their sexuality as leverage, and Hef used that to his advantage to fulfill his biological needs as a man to spread his seed as far and wide as he can, to take the taboo out of sex, and to make himself a multimillionaire. He didn’t create that concept, he just capitalized on it. Give the man some credit! In his 80s, he was banging 19 year old twins. Any criticism is just straight up jealousy.
