I think most people aren't aware of just how fucking creepy, controlling, abusive, and generally awful person Hugh Hefner was. He wasn't just your standard creepy old rich guy, which still would have been not great. Even though the women living in his nightmare mansion were there consensually, though I could do an entire blog post on the politics of choice (oh look I have), Hugh was controlling of these ladies to the point that is beyond 50 Shades of Gray not okay.
The 14 Worst Things About Hugh Hefner, as Revealed in Holly Madison's New Book
It starts off being pretty fucking terrible.
1. Though they publicly denied it, all girlfriends were expected to participate in Hef's bizarre bedtime group sex ritual. "I didn't immediately realize that all girlfriends were required to sleep with Hef," Madison writes.
Again, manipulation complicates the idea that they were all there by choice and doing everything they did with full consent. So, ick.
Then it gets weird. All kinds of strange rituals and messing with the women's heads make it sound like that mansion was a cult compound more than anything. And that old creepy fuck got his young children involved.
The only reason this guy was never arrested is because he was rich and white. And I'm glad he's dead so no women have to suffer through his abuse again. Someone get his kids to therapy.
