And he did so while trying to make it seem that it was the women in question who aspired to be "living Barbie [s]", "that at 23 they want nothing more than to jump octogenarians". AP is the largest and most trusted source of independent news and information.

"Everything anyone loves about me is because you understood me". Hefner told the Los Angeles Times in 2009, "I'm a believer in things symbolic". Thank you Hugh Hefner, that wouldn't have been possible without you!

But others will celebrate the man known as "Hef" as an American icon who promoted black artists, writers and athletes, tackled social issues like segregation and advocated for the LBGT community. The magazine, who has been popular for more than six decades, started a sexual revolution in the 1950s. "I was the one you said". He has founded Playboy magazine using US$600 (AU$764) of his own money, and turned it into a US$110 million (AU$140 million) Playboy empire focused on a well-off, sexually liberated lifestyle. He once said that his life revolves only around woman and he continued to live his "playboy" fantasy even in his later years. "U are a class act and I will always have gratitude for your kindness". He was a #Legend, innovator & one of a kind.

Hefner used his US$600 (AU$764) and some thousand more he borrowed, including cash he borrowed from his mother.

HUGH HEFNER's wife may miss out on a slice of the Playboy magnate's £30million fortune amid reports the 91-year-old left her off his will before his death at the Playboy Mansion. "I have no doubt your legacy will stay strong, may you rest in peace".

Hefner reportedly purchased the lot in 1992 for $75,000, nearly four decades after he published the first issue of Playboy in 1953. In 1955, he published a story by Charles Beaumont that envisioned a world where gay people were the majority; after facing pushback, Hefner said: "If it was wrong to persecute heterosexuals in a homosexual society, then the reverse was wrong, too".
