Hugh Hefner: ‘I have sex on a weekly basis, it involves more than one partner’

Hugh Hefner is shown with the playmate of the year, Claire Sinclair, on 5/6/11

Last week Hugh Hefner’s runaway bride Crystal Harris went on Howard Stern to say that she’d never seen Hef naked, that they only had sex once and that it lasted 2 seconds. “He isn’t half as sexual as you’d think,” she added. Hef then went on Twitter to deny that was the case, tweeting in part that “The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights…. Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don’t know why.” He later wrote that he loved her but that he “realized she really didn’t love me.”

Well Crystal has apologized on Twitter without fully taking responsibility. She wroteThe Stern interview scared me, he’s harsh. I was unprepared and blurted out things I shouldn’t have said, I’m sorry.” Anyone who is surprised by Stern questioning them about their sex life is either truly clueless or lying.

Hef then defended himself on Twitter, yet again, to give more specific details of his sexual prowess. He first diplomatically responded to Crystal’s apology, writing “I don’t blame Howard. Crystal shouldn’t have been booked on the show at this sensitive time.” Then he wroteFor the record, I have sex on a weekly basis, and did throughout my 2-and-a-half years with Crystal.” He followed up with “My sex life involves more than one partner & has since the end of my marriage in 1998.” (This was probably in response to Crystal crying that she was “not the only woman in Hef’s life,” to which he previously countered that she loved.)

We didn’t need that visual, but that’s pretty much what all the other women he paid to live in his house have said over the years. Hef is slowing down, though. He used to have sex parties twice a week. In an interview with the Daily Beast earlier this year, Hef confirmed a former bunny’s account that he has unprotected sex, but claimed that it was no problem since the women were tested for STDs. “One of the ways that you resolve that problem is to have sex with people who don’t have sexually transmitted diseases.” This guy’s money and influence have allowed him to be stuck in a 70s bubble he’s built in which the women never age and he can maintain the facade of a sex god who doesn’t have to get with the times and wrap it up. It’s clear that he’s upset that anyone would call him on that illusion. It’s probably one he works hard to maintain in his own mind too.

    And the TMI 2011 Tour continues unabated…

  3. brin says:

    I wish they would both be quiet….she’s dumb and he’s embarassing.

  4. hatsumomo says:

    I didn’t believe it for a second that chick in the top pic was a playmate. She isnt blonde, I can’t see her sternum through her chest and her boobs are too soft looking. She musta ‘worked’ her ass off for that title.

  5. Funnylilou75 says:

    hahahaha!!! he just confirmed that what crystal has said is the truth by just being upset about it!!
    and plus :common’ grandpa stop being delusional about yourself, everybody knows that it’s just smoke and mirrors!!!Men in their forties and fifties begin to encounter sex problems and you want us to believe that you are a sex god at an age where pooping normally is being almost doing the olympics!

  6. heb says:

    I love how you used a picture of Hef with CLAIRE under that headline….since Claire is his son’s girlfriend, ha ha

  7. Jen says:

    Ewww. Just gross. And people who are having sex don’t have to talk about it. I’m sure his lawyers are busy working up confidentiality agreements right now to make sure another playmate/girlfriend doesn’t run her mouth like that again.

  8. your mama says:

    Yuck! Doesn’t he realize how unattractive and unsexual he is? Why not let his sons or at least one who is interested in the biz, take over the persona of Playboy. I know his elder daughter works for Playboy as an exec, but come on – does he really think that people want to picture him with any of the playmates? BTW – the new blond gfriend he has, who was supposedly Crystal’s bff – looks like a 12 year old hooker troll. Sorry, hun, but it’s true. Nasty thinking of a 12 yo with Hef. No breakfast for me now!

  9. Bit of Nonsense from London says:

    Reading various accounts from the Mansion over the years … if young girls heady with hopes of fame hopping on and off his shrivelled, drugged-up old carrot is “having sex”, all I can say is I’m sorry for the man. He’s clearly never known loving, mutual-respecting intimacy or he wouldn’t think reminding us all of his rather unhappy (and certainly unfulfilling for most participants) sex life was a worthy means of countering Crystal’s comments.

  10. MarenGermany says:

    He is using the girls as they use him, and I really dont like him that much, but I have to say, in his statements he always stays kind of …classy?
    He could have ripped that girl apart Charlie Sheen Style but he always manages to chose his words rather elegantly.

  11. Linner says:

    Wow, Hef! Can you say insecure about your tiny peni$?

  12. Kimbob says:

    HH is an embarrassment to himself. He’s a deluded old man…plain & simple. The fact that he feels compelled to respond speaks volumes of his sexual insecurity & his role as a “sex god/sought-after eternal bachelor” is still only an illusion IN HIS OWN HEAD. I wish he’d disappear.

    @Bit of Nonsense…DITTO!!! Eloquently put!

  13. Bee says:

    Yuck. THe quote about having sex with girls who don’t have STD’s is the way to NOT get an STD…. has HE been tested? What if HE is the one giving diseases to the playmates. Hasn’t he been having unprotected sex longer than 99% of these girls have been alive? I’m sorry. This entire situation is absolutely disgusting. Also, I don’t see any of these girls (Kendra and Holly included) as anything but glorified hookers.

  14. Pyewacket says:

    That is one ugly Playmate, IMO.

  15. yo momma says:

    @ your mama – why should there be someone to take over that “persona” of playboy? do we really need it? is this the guy men should aspire to be-hell no. but hey-you wanna be a whore and get loadsa stds thats your business

  16. Whatamess! says:

    what kinda stupid name is”Claire Sinclair”?
    she’s absolutely hideous

  17. Eve says:

    Last time I try to comment on this subject: I agree with Kimbob and Bee.

  18. Valleygirl says:

    I’m embarrassed for Hef at this point. It reminds me of the Pam Anderson birthday post I read a few minutes ago: No one wants to tell these people that they look and act ridiculous, they aren’t 25 anymore, and people make fun of them behind their backs. Hef, nobody believes you’re a stud anymore. We believe you USED to be a stud. We DO believe that you have to pay women to hang out with you and give the illusion that you’re sleeping with them.

  19. Annie says:

    We all know that by a certain age men attract younger women with money and power, not their sexual prowess. I would have some respect for him if he talked and wrote about the heyday of the Playboy Clubs and the mansion. But the image of that withered, spotty body as a sexual machine is not only ridiculous, it is disgusting. He needs to embrace an elder statesman role, take credit for his part in the sexual revolution, and regale the public with crazy stories from his past.

  20. UKHels says:

    ‘ick’ and indeed ‘ew’

  21. Judy says:

    How pathetic that he even responded to her and even more pathetic that an old man has to prove his virility by saying he has sex more than once/week with multiple partners. I don’t even want to hear this from someone in his 20′s. You are PATHETIC, Hugh Hefner.

  22. Angie says:

    At first glance, Claire Sinclaire kind of reminded me of Barbie Benton…maybe she reminds Hef of better days and better girlfriends?

  23. Hmmm says:

    There’s this marvellous scene in Fellini’s “Casanova” where he’s in a caravan with a conquest and all you can see is the caravan rocking up and down, over and over and over unto infinity. So mechanical. Fellini captured his true nature. Reminds me of Hef.

  24. JennJenn says:

    C’mon, the guy can’t even walk anymore. He shuffles like the old geezer that he is. Lying on a bad with your pants pulled down and letting a line of women take turns riding your junk for a minute or two qualifies physiologically as sex, but it’s long way down the scale from his heyday with the naturally beautiful and classy Barbie Benton. He’s declined into such a pathetic caricature.

  25. Amanda G says:

    Hef, just stop. Seriously. You are so pathetic.

  26. Annie_Grey says:

    Only because he makes them. It’s a requirement.

    This guy is probably the reason for Legionnaires in the jacuzzi.

  27. The Original Ashley says:

    I know people are knocking the girl in the header but I kind of like that she’s not a typical Playmate. She’s kind of cute in a 60′s way, though she does have a little piggy Posh nose, it works for her. I guess that’s why Hef chose her reliving the glory days?

    And the poster who said she looked like Barbie, spot on.

  28. eternalcanadian says:

    Grrrrooooooosssssss! I still don’t get why those young gals are having sex with a wrinkly 85 year old penis? :o

  29. kira says:

    The more he talks, the more delusional he sounds.

    How desperate must you be to have sexual relations with this mummy? The money and fame can’t be worth it. Everyone will always know that you slept with Hef. Uggghhhh…

  30. lola says:

    hahhaha, remember just a couple days back when people were saying he’s classy and a gentleman and people were feeling sorry for his honor? Please, he’s an old, sick man who pays for s ex, and not even real sex, fake sex where girls hop on him for one second so he can pretend he’s still virile.

    ridiculous fool.

  31. Camille says:

    @hatsumomo: Well she is/was dating one of Hefs sons…

    As for this story- yuck.

  32. sammib says:

    There is something very very undignified about being in your 70′s and still having to publicly comment on your sex life. Promoting your business by promoting some bullshite lifestyle is still undignified. Get some pride man.

  33. Nah, nah & nah... says:

    Dear Hef,

    You’re an old, lame dude who got rich off of exploiting young, exploitative females, one of whom screwed you back well, even if we’re not talking about sexually, and we’re all afraid to tell you how lame this all looks for both of you, especially since you still try to have those weekly Sex Night Line-Em-Up horndoggy parties with said exploitative females, because you remind us of our grandfather and we punch people in the face who talk about our beloved grandfathers and she reminds us of the Mean Girls and they always get their comeuppance in the end (ie: an implant implodes over Brazil or they marry a loser or something) so punching her in the face isn’t worth the restraining order.

    A grand-daughter who snuck to watch the Playboy Channel in the 80′s thinking that was what sex and sexy was really like and now I’m kinda bummed that it, and you, were both exagerating the glamour of it all

  34. I am Legend says:

    The first thing I though when I saw the headline was “One for sex and another one to hold it straight and maybe a third to wake him up in the middle”.

    Where’s the episode of The Simpsons where Mr Burns buys the Hefner mansion?
