Hugh Hefner's Son Honors Dad in Surprisingly Touching Tribute

Hugh Hefner

On Wednesday, Playboy creator #Hugh Marston Hefner died at the age of 91 at the Playboy Mansion near #beverly hills, the New York Times reported.

Hugh's son Cooper Hefner, who is the chief creative officer of Playboy Enterprises, praised his father for living an "exceptional and impactful life", and admitted he would be "greatly missed".

"Hefner took a progressive approach not only to sexuality and humor, but also to literature, politics and culture", the statement said, calling the "Playboy Interview", or an extensive discussion between a big-name person and an interviewer, a "standard setter".

The Chicago-born Hefner founded the influential men's magazine in 1953, with the publication garnering 7 million subscribers by its second year. "No hint of seediness in them, there was a strict policy that if you bothered any of the girls at all you were ejected immediately".

'It's fair to say that without the support of Hugh Hefner and the Playboy Foundation, NORML might never have advanced past the idea stage'.

'Hef changed my life. I remember this one time a classmate brought a Playboy magazine which featured Erika Eleniak and my god that one did the rounds. "Accepted me and encouraged me to be myself", she wrote.

"So, sitting down, talking to executives, explaining different fields, 'cause that's kind of what you need to do with a company this large", he told WSJ Live.

The daughter of legendary musician Frank Sinatra described Hef as "one of the nicest men" she's ever known. And now that Hefner has died, he will continue to lie next to the likes of those who have graced his iconic magazines, USA Today reports. So did Michelle McLaughlin - a Playmate seven years later.

"Hefner ate Viagra like candies in order to maintain his very active sex life", The Independent has reported.

Reid appeared on the January/February cover of Playboy in 2010. She thanked the magazine titan for believing in her vision and giving her artistic freedom.
