Playboy and Porn, Part 1: Hugh Hefner Makes Good on His Promise
How Alfred Kinsey's Self-Designated "Pamphleteer" Became Immensely Successful.
In continuing to study the pernicious effects of the porn industry born of Alfred Kinsey’s false “research findings” as exposed by Dr. Judith Reisman, here is Exhibit A: Hugh Hefner and his creation, Playboy.
Not meant to be an exhaustive analysis, this piece touches on certain points about this major, morally subversive phenomenon of the last century. (Warning: much rambling up ahead!)
TAKE A GANDER AT THIS INTERVIEW FROM 2008 by the New York Times, nearly a decade before Hugh Hefner’s death at age 91.
The freedom to indulge in selfish male hedonism without consequences or constraints—this was essentially the Playboy credo.
In Hefner’s own words, he lived “an adolescent’s dream life.” Yes—a life of self-indulgence and perpetual immaturity, shunning the normal adult responsibilities of a wife and children—a family—the basic unit without which society withers away to …irrelevance.
(Note that no mention is made here of Alfred Kinsey’s tremendous influence on Hefner.)
