Huge-A glorified pornographer or a revolutionary?
“Life is about balance and balance is all about mastery.” Here, the Entertainment world goes into mourning on the demise of revolutionary pipe-smoking magnate Hugh Hefner.
Surrounded by his family members, the hedonist silently slipped away of natural causes in his royal Playboy mansion.
Why an ordinary man to be called a revolutionary?
He brought out mere dictionary words into real conversation. Back then in 1950, contraceptives, pregnant and premarital sex were controversial topics to talk about but he ignited a sexual revolution. The true visionary who chose to not conform had changed attitudes toward sex.
Why Playboy remained a brand name worldwide?
The first issue of Playboy in 1953 sold more than 50, 000 copies. By 1971 it was selling 7 million copies a month.
He followed his bliss and his bliss leads him to a billion-dollar fortune. Years after years the original playboy went on to publish ‘Bible’ for men.
Did the trailblazer degrade and objectify women with impunity?
Symbolized by bow-tied women in bunny costumes, the trailblazer tried to take them out of their reserved kitchen space.
The magazine warned Women from the first issue here by declaring: “If you are somebody’s sister, wife, or mother-in-law do not pick us up by mistake, please pass us along to the man in your life and get back to Ladies Home Companion.”
