I started reading Playboy (on the sly) in high school, and actually subscribed for a while. Sure, I enjoyed the airbrushed photography, ;)  but they also had music and movie reviews and other content. Their interview section was always very well done. I especially liked the John Lennon interview.

Hugh Hefner: The perception was "Women want to be with him, men want to be him"

He stood for EQUALITY.
He stood for WOMEN'S RIGHTS.
http://www.cnn.com/2...xler/index.html

Hef's notion of the freedom to express sexuality translated largely into freedom to express men's desire for women, and the fantasy that those women would be always ready and eager to comply.
And it wasn't just about business: Hefner himself bragged about sleeping with more than a thousand women. In her 2015 memoir, "Down the Rabbit Hole," former Playmate and Hef girlfriend Holly Madison described the Playboy Mansion as a place where Hef would encourage competition -- and body image issues --between his multiple live-in girlfriends.

His legacy is full of evidence of the exploitation of women for professional gain. In creating Playboy, and maintaining its brand over six decades, Hef championed a world in which women serve to delight and entertain men, where their bodies are objects, where modification to appeal to male senses often took precedence over comfort (because who really wants DDDs?).


All of which is not to say that Hefner's life should not be celebrated -- in some way. He was a man of many facets, who certainly made an impression on American society.
But we should recognize that his legacy is not an unimpeachable one. It is, to say the least, a complicated one. Was Hefner a feminist?

He may have thought he was. But perhaps like many men of a certain age, his definition of it was surely -- and sorely -- due for a tune-up.

He inspired many young men. Keep in mind the women that appeared in the magazine did not have their arms twisted, got paid, and in many cases appearing in the magazine led to other career opportunities. Having said that, things have changed for women, mostly for the better, since Playboy's heyday in the 60's and 70's
