Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy Magazine and the Playboy Clubs, a true icon of American culture, has passed away at the age of 91, of natural causes.
Mr. Hefner almost singlehandedly changed how we view sexuality – both attitudinally and pictorially. Some of us were happy about the more open, accepting stances he presented in photos and articles, some were not. But I’m sure we all agree that he had a major impact.
And what publication other than Playboy, ever caused anyone to say – almost always dishonestly – that “I only buy it for the articles”?
May Hugh Hefner rest in peace.
