Playboy mansion? More like a squalid prison
Daily Mail ^ | 12:43 PM on 30th December 2010 | By David Leafe

Posted on 12/30/2010 9:39:11 AM PST by Niuhuru

The marriage proposal was apparently a rather romantic affair. On Christmas Eve, the couple watched a late-night movie together and then exchanged gifts: for him a framed photograph of their King Charles Spaniel, for her an engagement ring.

‘She burst into tears,’ he revealed on Twitter at the weekend. ‘This is the happiest Christmas in memory.’ ‘The most memorable Christmas ever,’ she tweeted in agreement. ‘I love him.’

All of which might be rather more touching if the ­prospective groom was not Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner who, at 84, is 60 years older than his fiancée, a platinum blonde model named Crystal Harris.

The Full Title: "Playboy mansion? More like a squalid prison: Former Playmates tell of 'grubby' world inside Hugh Hefner's empire"

Times like this I am so glad I never want to be famous through the entertainment industry.

Yeesh. I knew the “Playboy Mansion” was a sleaze pit and that all the glamor was simply hype, but I didn’t suspect it was this bad. Hefner is more pathetic than I thought he was—an old man living in a dingy house and still obsessed with bedding 20 year olds. And these “girlfriends” are nothing more than glorfied prostitutes. Cheap, crass, glorified prostitution is what goes on there.

Maybe Hef is hooking up with her for her housekeeping skills?

Yeah, RIGHT!!! Like I'm going to believe any of that.

Treating other people like objects disassociated from their humanity is the path to happiness and salvation, unless I've misunderstood everything I've ever been told in The Church and The Bible.

Meaningless! Meaningless!”
says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless.”

I said to myself, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good.” But that also proved to be meaningless.

I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor,
and this was the reward for all my toil.
11 Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.

They are “high class” whores who work in a specialized niche of the industry.

When I was a teenager, the Playboy lifestyle would have been the ultimate high for me. However, I realize that the "lifestyle" is actually a Deathstyle. Not just the anonymous sex with high-priced prostitutes....it's also the glorification of self, the indulgence of "pleasure" that turns into pain, the using of other people, etc.

As we see in this article, the glamor and glitz of the Playboy Mansion is only an illusion. It's reality is poop stains on the carpet, other "stains" on old mattresses, and dreary and depressing people trying to keep up a facade that looked so hip and glamorous in the 1960's.

This really does show how shallow the “playboy lifestyle” is. Hefner has nothing in his life. He is “pouring over” logs of when the girls come and go, he’s giving them drugs, he’s taking Viagra every night. His life is all about sex. And its meaningless sex. It goes without saying that none of these girls would be with him if he didn’t give them $1,000 per week and put them as centerfolds in his magazine. And he knows it. Many young men go through a period in their lives when they would love to live the “Playboy” lifestyle of constant sex with good looking women. Most grow out of it—they mature. Some don’t and end up doing drugs and engaging in orgies at the Playboy mansion. Its not glamorous—its pathetic.

Nauseating. However, I have always thought that Hefner looked crazy, even when he was younger.

It is continually fascinating to me that young women can become famous by being whores. The airheaded women who live in his house and service him get their own shows and young girls actually think they are beautiful and sweet.

Unreal.

I watched a documentary on the Playboy Empire and basically the women aspiring ot be “Bunny of the Year” and such were the very same types that aspire to a career in Hollywood:

Dim beauty queen types or women who worked as waitresses/ice cream scoopers aspiring to ‘better’ through their unexceptional looks and such who end up dead in the end. They’re usually nice, but in an irresponsible way that results in them getting involved with scummy guys.

These women are still the same, lower class types that would be living in the ghetto if not for their boobs. All unexceptional trying to be ‘better’ in one way or another. I am still surprised though that these women were surprised that they didn’t realize what would be expected of them.

It’s unbelievable to me that they would sign up with ‘Hef’ for $52K a year. Ashlee Dupree and those who signed up with Heidi Fleiss did better.

Kind of like actresses who try to convince people they are smart, intelligent beings and then act surprised that men treat them like objects. They’re actresses, not nuns or female doctors!

I remember reading a biography about Dorothy Dandridge and it keeps mentioning how Dandridge kept trying ot downplay the ‘sexy’ aspect of her onstage persona. They just don’t get it, do they?

IN the entertainment industry, it’s awlays been about using your body, but these days, it’s so OVERT and not just using your looks to get into the entertainment industry. Now it’s about using your bod to get a job, raise, etc.

This is the "lady" who left the mansion for law school and wrote the tell-all book detailed in the article.

It's really a distirbing read about how empty and controlling Hef is. Talk about a life void of G-d.

"... it goes without saying that none of these girls would be with him if he didn’t give them $1,000 per week and put them as ..."

Let's see, 52 weeks in a year, that adds up to $52,000 per year. Not bad money for just doing nothing with your life but servicing a dirty old man, getting your room and board free and just being seen with the creep.

Now a question for the IRS: Are these girls filing income tax returns on the money they receive and if they are what are they claiming is their occupation? Fashion models perhaps?

Poor Hef. He’s way, way past his prime. I remember a documentary I saw where he was showing off his massive movie collection—all on out-dated VHS tapes. The Mansion is like a time war—the C. Montgomery Burns of porn. He reminds me of my Great-Uncle who had an awesome vacation home that remained stuck in the early 70s when he got too old to care. I read a biography that said for years Hef lived on a diet consisting primarily of fried chicken and Coca-Cola. He’s still living out a teenage fantasy. Still, most guys wouldn’t mind filling his shoes for a week or two.

$1000 a week
52,000 a year before tax.

Damn girls, I was making more than that before I was 30. That really is chump change from a cheap old senile millionaire.

This is not about sex at all. If it was, he wouldn’t need viagra.

This is about control, domination, and humiliation by an old pervert with a god complex. We see that in particular with the plastic surgery.

He really wants to control these girls from how they look, when and with whom they have sex, when and what they eat, when they go out, when they come in, and when they have a bowel movement.

The guy is a sick old pervert who is always alone no matter how many people are around him.

What a pathetic way to live a man’s old age. I’ll be surrounded by family and live the annual rhythms of the traditions we’ve made for ourselves. Hef has no one but the expensive whores who couldn’t care less for him but for his money and a chance at fame.

At 84 Hefner is noting but a disgusting old man. I cannot even find pity for him.

The sum of his life, can be measured in the volume of fluid ejected from the end of his penis.

$52,000 per year and free room and board in Loas Angeles - plus probably $10,000 to $20,000 in plastic surgeries - for turning about 30 tricks with one john.

Given that most of these girls are likely high school dropouts from abusive/neglectful families working in dive strip clubs in the sticks, it probably seems like a very good deal for them at the age of 19 or 20.

He basically preys on runaways in full public view and has turned it into a relatively lucrative business.
