A new documentary on Hugh Hefner hits theaters at the end of the month, and from all accounts, it’s going to revitalize our love of the world’s swinging-est bachelor.
I think the major thing I managed to accomplish was playing some part in changing our social and sexual values, and I take a lot of pride in that. When I was in college, middle-class kids couldn’t live together before they got married.
I have been married twice, and those were not the happiest times of my life. Part of the problem, quite frankly, is that when you get married, the romance disappears and the children arrive and the love is transferred. It shouldn’t be that way…
[NYT: There is more to life than being adored. There are other rewards to marriage.]
Unfortunately, they come from other women.
Just over a week after that feisty interview with the New York Times, in which he also stated that he doesn’t think our definition of beauty has changed, the porn mogul made a major move. Hefner announced that he is planning on buying up all remaining shares of Playboy Enterprises, Inc. in order to take the company private.
