Hugh Hefner, the iconic founder of Playboy magazine, died at his home, the Playboy Mansion, of natural causes at age 91, Playboy Enterprises said in a statement on Wednesday.

Playboy magazine was founded more than 60 years ago to create a niche upscale men's magazine, combining images of nude women with in-depth articles, interviews and fiction by a variety of well-known writers.

Hefner reportedly founded the magazine with $600 and another $1,000 borrowed from his mother. The first centerfold, an iconic feature of the monthly magazine, was of Marilyn Monroe.

"My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom," Cooper Hefner, Playboy Enterprises' chief creative officer and Hugh's son, said in the statement.

"He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand, one of the most recognizable and enduring in history," the younger Hefner said.

While the magazine managed to both inspire and ride the "sexual revolution" of the 1960s and 70s, in recent years it has struggled in the face of tough competition from the availability of free pornography online.

For a brief period from mid-2016 through early 2017, the magazine experimented with avoiding nudity, before returning to its previous formula.

The statement said Playboy magazine was aimed at more than the market for nude images.

"Hefner took a progressive approach not only to sexuality and humor, but also to literature, politics and culture," the statement said, calling the "Playboy Interview," or an extensive discussion between a well-known person and an interviewer, a "standard setter."

Hefner also led free-speech battles in the U.S., fighting all the way to the Supreme Court after the U.S. Post Office refused to deliver his magazine, the statement noted.

Hefner was survived by his wife, Crystal, his sons, Cooper, David and Marston, and his daughter, Christie, the statement said.

RIP super stud.
I thought the consensus from his many lovers was he was less than impressive in bed. More like a Hollywood mogul, he had access to lots of women who saw him as a way to get fame and fortune or at least be introduced to celebrities not because he personally excited them. They wanted what he could do for them outside the bedroom more than inside it.

So closer to a super-pimp really. A pimp pioneer who took pimping to the next level of mass=market and quasi-respectability.

Who cares if some whore gets off. She's fucking him to get ahead, no need to get anyone else off but The Heff.
Yeah, but like I said that makes him a John or a pimp, not a stud. A stud is someone who attracts and satisfies women sexually.

I'm not trying to denigrate him or his accomplishments, I just think it's important to call things by their right names. If you don't do that your thinking gets muddled.
