Nolte: Playboy’s Hugh Hefner Liberated Us Straight Into Hell

by JOHN NOLTE7 October 7, 2017

My highest political value, the one that informs everything from my vote to my political activism, is individual liberty. An ideal America is one where every consenting adult is allowed to live their life in whatever way they choose. As long as you do not touch the tip of my nose, feel free to swing your fists however you like.
Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy magazine who died last month at age 91, furthered the noble cause of live and let live. In 1953, when Playboy first launched, ours was a society that not only used the power of the state to outlaw certain behaviors and beliefs, but was one with countless societal scarlet letters, countless stigmas that banished certain kinds of misfits, mostly sexual deviants, from society.

Simply put, and although I disagree with both, I want to live in a country where a flaming homosexual who demands I bake his wedding cake is allowed to serve in Congress alongside a flaming Muslim who believes sodomy should be added to the long list of unhealthy behaviors prohibited by the government. Until a crime is committed, until violence is used or excused, no one in America should face banishment over their beliefs or for living life on their own terms.

Hefner’s example of living on his own terms was that of an American success story, and even if his destiny was one of godless hedonism, as my colleague Joel Pollak wrote last month, he was still the author of that destiny, a man who transformed himself from a maladroit copywriter into a maladroit publisher, and who then spent more than a half-century posing — rather awkwardly — as Ian Flemings’ idea of a pipe-smoking swinger.

Also in the plus column is Hefner’s early support of the Civil Rights movement. Like Marlon Brando and Charlton Heston, Hefner climbed on board that righteous train in the early 60s, before it was cool, and helped to make it cool. And that is no small thing.

Without a doubt, Hefner’s relentless crusade against certain pieties and prejudices removed countless scarlet letters, and that is all good … but that is only 20 percent of his legacy.

The remaining 80 percent unleashed hell.

Filled with intentional lies, Alfred Kinsey’s dual (and now debunked) reports — Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953) — told normal Americans that they were abnormal; that everyone was enjoying pre-marital sex, extra-marital sex, and homosexual sex; that America’s moralistic society was an inferno of suppression and hypocrisy; that those who saved themselves for marriage, believed in marital fidelity, and chose not to engage in loveless sex, were society’s true freaks and misfits.

This was not true. Far from it. In fact, American society today is still not as permissive as Kinsey portrayed it some 70 years ago.

Nevertheless, thanks to the demonic Kinsey and his unquestioning enablers among America’s elite, every man or woman looking to be hip; anyone looking for a reason to stop controlling their own worst attributes, now had science on their side to worship self, to pursue the empty pleasures of sexual deviancy over the fulfillment and happiness that is only possible through a moral life governed by moderation.

Hefner declared himself Kinsey’s pamphleteer, and there is no question that on the pornographic pages of Playboy, that is exactly what he was.

To begin with, by taking pornography out of the backroom and mainstreaming it into urban chic, Hefner forever altered our view of women. Before Hefner, mainstream American culture idolized and idealized women, placed them on pedestals as goddesses, never went beyond presenting them as the precious objects of our dreams (see here, here, and here).

But with the turn of a page, Hefner demolished that pedestal, stripped off the goddesses’ clothes, and spread her legs wide open. Goddesses plopped to earth as flat-out sex objects, things created only to serve man’s basest desires.

No longer did we have to better ourselves, civilize ourselves, or make ourselves worthy in order to obtain the gift of femininity, because for the price of a magazine, there it was — stark naked and staring right into our eyes; stapled for our consumption and folded into three.

In an instant, that precious gift that comes with the sacramental union between one man and one woman was cheapened into an entitlement and, worst of all, done so through a goddess’s act of self-degradation.

And that was the least of it.

That is all so true. It is sad what morality has degenerated into.

Still, while doing the rest of us no favors, and contributing to the jaded society mores, Hefner lived his life like few men ever will and millions would love to.

America Made Me a Feminist

I was 9 when I first stepped into a Swedish school. Freshly arrived from Czechoslovakia, I was bullied by a boy for being an immigrant. My one friend, a tiny little girl, punched him in the face. I was impressed. In my former country, a bullied girl would tattle or cry. I looked around to see what my new classmates thought of my friend’s feat, but no one seemed to have noticed. It didn’t take long to understand that in Sweden, my power was suddenly equal to a boy’s.

As high school approached, the boys wanted to kiss us and touch us, and the girls became a group of benevolent queens dispensing favors. The more the boys wanted us, the more powerful we became. When a girl chose to bestow her favors, the lucky boy was envied and celebrated. Slut shaming? What’s a slut?

Condoms were provided by the school nurse without question. Sex education taught us the dangers of venereal diseases and unwanted pregnancy, but it also focused on fun stuff like masturbation. For a girl to own her sexuality meant she owned her body, she owned herself. Women could do anything men did, but they could also — when they chose to — bear children. And that made us more powerful than men. The word “feminist” felt antiquated; there was no longer a use for it.

When I moved to Paris at 15 to work as a model, the first thing that struck me was how differently the men behaved. They opened doors for me, they wanted to pay for my dinner. They seemed to think I was too delicate, or too stupid, to take care of myself.

Instead of feeling celebrated, I felt patronized. I claimed my power the way I had learned in Sweden: by being sexually assertive. But Frenchmen don’t work this way. In discos, I’d set my eye on an attractive stranger, and then dance my way over to let him know he was a chosen one. More often than not, he fled. And when he didn’t run, he asked how much I charged.

Hugh Hefner did not respect the purity of women. His passion was about the sexual satisfaction of men. That is all.

100% filth he was.

Re: BREITBART'S JOHN NOLTE: Playboy’s Hugh Hefner Liberated Us Straight Into Hell
It's a mixed bag as all human life is. Reminds me of Andy Warhal who I once regarded as the person who destroyed fine art and started the degraded modern style of advertising. Now that I am more familiar with his actual work, I think he was a great genius, and great artist and the fact that his style took over advertising standards has no reflection on his actual motivations: he was used.

Mr Hefner...I'll never regard him as a genius, just clever enough to sell something, but he took a great deal of the false guilt about normal human sexuality out of the picture. For that I regard him as a spiritual giant. Mixing God up with guilt over the natural drives of our DNA was a monsterous Black Magic that has been perpetuated on human kind for thousands of years, coinciding with agricultural societies where control of breeding stock became paramount in defeating venerial disease. Venereal diseases were very rare for Tens of Thousands of years we were poly-amoris hunter gatherers. Playboy feeds the endorphin system because it allows us to return to some of the Old Ways.

I'll agree that Hugh Hefner contributed to our current messed up society, but it is Feminism that created the monster, the modern woman. All the power of both are given to the modern woman, and the main beneficiary is not modern man. In fact, both have worked against modern man. Modern man or modern White Man has fallen from the top of the heap, to be the deplorable White man despised by the rest of civilization, including, apparently, white women.

I grew up in the 90’s
We had illegal cable and one channel that introduced me to pornography was The Playboy Channel
That company basically ruined me sexually and emotionally for years because it ‘progrsmmed’ my views and skewed my understanding

I kind of want to start smoking again just knowing that this prick along with Castro and hitler quit


Hefner was not as talented as people made him out to be; granted he hired and helped a lot of talented and well meaning people/causes in the early days
