Marilyn Monroe and Hugh Hefner

The founder of Playboy magazine, which he built into a multi-media empire, Hefner passed away at his home, The Playboy Mansion, which played host to the two Strikeforce cards. In one interview with Vanity Fair, journalist John Heilpern noted that feminists believe Playboy treats women as objects.

RIP Hef! Reminiscing about my Playboy shoots, the incredible parties at the mansion and how much I love Hef!

After being struck by fears that he would end up following his parents' zipped-up lifestyle, Hefner - who had worked in jobs ranging from assistant personnel manager to promotion copywriter at Esquire magazine - made a decision to take dramatic action and start his own magazine in 1953. "There's something unique when an iconic legendary figure is more famous 50 years after her death than at the height of her career".

Chernoff-Moore says she achieved all three; the last goal she accomplished a few times, she jokes. Barring the photographer, everybody in the team was a young woman. Madison, whose fame increased on the E! show "The Girls Next Door", revealed that Hefner's girlfriends were forced to take part in sex rituals.

Little did Chicago-born Hefner know that his beloved Milly had slept with another man while her beau served in the USA military during the Second World War.

The magazine's stance on women's reproductive rights, Pizulo says, "helped move the culture in a freer direction for everyone". Hefner bought the Gold Coast home in 1959 and lived there until 1974, according to reports.

Hefner advocated freedom of speech and was a strong supporter of social causes frequently inviting black guests to televised parties, also soliciting comedians and performers of color. The 26-year-old heir said his dad defined a lifestyle that remains the essence of the Playboy brand.

"I know that God had a hand In that cause you talk about nudity and Playboy and how could it be but you don't understand where I came from and where he brought me".
