LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, May 1, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) Despite the overwhelming, ready availability of the most hardcore, graphic pornographic content to almost anyone today, especially via the Internet, Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner worries the nation is teetering upon the precipice of another Victorian age.
In a rare editorial, The War on Sex, Hefner wrote in the May issue of Playboy that repressed conservativesare pounding on Americas bedroom to again regulate our sex lives. He specifically named Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, and Rush Limbaugh. While wooing the conservative vote, these candidate revealed the ways a GOP-led government would decide whom we can have sex and for what reasons singled, married, straight, or gay.
His editorial seemed to criticize allowing employers to avoid providing contraception for religious reasons.
If these zealots have their way, our hard-won sexual liberation womens rights, reproductive rights, and rights to privacy lie [sic] in peril. He deemed this an organized attack on our most basic human freedom.
We wont let that happen, he continued. Welcome to the new sexual revolution.
Hefner, who turned 86 on April 9, describes himself as an independent. However, he has raised tens of thousands of dollars for Democratic politicians including Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Jesse Jackson, Jimmy Carter, Gary Hart, John Kerry, Jerry Brown, Dianne Feinstein, Julian Bond and George McGovern. He has also funded the Democratic National Committee, the Hollywood Womens Political Committee, and Hispanic Unity USA.
Ana Marie Cox, a liberal blogger for the UK Guardian, told MSNBC host Lawrence ODonnell that the pajama-clad publisher had not gone far enough. Its titillating to talk about this as the war against sex, she said, but this is really about civil rights and human rights and about gender equality.
If anyone has been waging a war on sex it is Hugh Hefner and other pornographers like him who have objectified the bodies of women and have taken a beautiful act one that God created to be an expression of total, self-giving love and to transmit new human life and cheapened and reduced it to the mere satisfaction of a bodily appetite, Fr. Peter West, vice president for missions at Human Life International, told LifeSiteNews.com. The hard won sexual liberation he speaks of has come at the cost of over 53 million dead from abortion, an explosion of sexually transmitted diseases, millions of broken relationships, and millions of hollow, immature men who are incapable of mature and faithful relationships.
The decision to frame the issue as a political attack meant little to Fr. West. Human Life International does not identify with a political party, and were sure the GOP can take care of itself in that respect, he said.
However, the social doctrines of the Playboy philosophy motivated him to point out the sexual liberations real social harms, including pornographys ability to alter neurobiology. Exposure is particularly dangerous for young people. For example, a 13-year-old boy molested his five-year-old sister after years of pornographic addiction.
But the profits are high for its producers. The magazine ExtremeTech estimates that pornography accounts for 30 percent of the webs total traffic. Its consumers spend $3,075.64 every second of the day to get their fix.
Fr. West said, Looking at the whole picture, it is impossible to call the radical sexual liberation of the last several decades a win for anyone except perhaps Hefner and other pornographers.
Seriously, do I need a nearly 90-year old raisin telling me what sex is like? This guy needs Viagra in an IV drip at his age.
Sick old pervert..........just pretends he likes women.
The only sexual revolution awaiting Hugh is if scientists somehow are able to let a dead guy get an erection.
And given Hugh’s condition, they may have already solved this problem.
I have to point out the straw man argument here.
We’d have no problem if Hugh and the rest of perverts kept their sexual desires in the bedroom. The objections come when they force it on us by parades, newsstands, on TV, in movies, teaching perversion to our kids in schools, wanting to redefine marriage, special legal status and protection, preferential treatment, and special times of the year dedicated to celebrating their perversity.
STRAW MAN DOWN!
Oh puhleeze, if this old geezer ain’t coming out to tout “traditional marriage” he is wasting his breath.
Hugh, they’ve left you and your hetero-normative centerfolds behind in the dust.
Sorry about that, I wish guys and gals like you and the bunnies were still cutting edge, but you are so old hat now, I think John Kerry might still have you,.
Participating in new, less intimate experiences could show this old dog that he is good at more than bedroom tricks. It might build up his confidence enough to leave the security of his rutting pen, learn that he actually has more than one talent and contribute something wholesome and worthwhile to the global community before he stands in judgment. Heck, he might even be a good example to his kid(S)!
The man feels threatened and is afraid that the conservatives will expose his tunnel vision and the fact that he is a one trick dic.
“And then they are going to be really unhappy.”
Amen to that.
Conclusion: those on THE LEFT can never be happy.
But, we knew that. Just underlining for emphasis.
Praying he repents and puts his trust in Christ. He hasn’t much time until eternity.
If Hugh Heffner and his followers had their way, there would not be any Virgin Wool!
All you need to know how dated he and his empire is is how The Playboy Club tv show crashed and burned. From wiki
The Playboy Club is an American television series that ran on NBC from September 19, 2011 to October 3, 2011. Set in 1961, the series centers around the employees (known as Bunnies) of the original Playboy Club operating in Chicago.
The Playboy Club was canceled on October 4, 2011, after three episodes aired, due to the low ratings it was obtaining. It was the first cancellation of the 201112 television season. NBC continued to film the series until October 10, 2011, hoping to sell the series to another network. Both Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner and show creator Chad Hodge have expressed hope that the series will be picked up by Bravo.
When production wrapped on October 10, 2011, Hodge and Laura Benanti both confirmed that they had finished seven episodes, including the pilot. Benanti further stated that the seventh episode has two endings, one of which is more final to the series.
...”Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner worries the nation is teetering upon the precipice of another Victorian age.”
I’m sure he remembers it well.
Meet the New Sexual Revolution, the same as the Old Sexual Revolution.
Hugh Hefner announces the new sexual revolution
In his pants. I believe it is called Viagra or Enzyte.
Pathetic publicity stunt.
Sorry, Hugh. No one is listening to you.
Why is this old degenerate geezer still alive? More to the point: why does anyone care what Hugh Hefner thinks anyway?
