Sexist relic Hugh Hefner dead

A relic of a sexist era gone.. Hugh Hefner dead at 91..





Hugh Hefner -- the silk-robed Casanova whose Playboy men's magazine popularized the term "centerfold," glamorized an urbane bachelor lifestyle and helped spur the 'sexual revolution' of the 1960s -- has died, his company said late Wednesday. He was 91.


Hefner founded Playboy in 1953 with $600 of his own money and built the magazine into a multimillion-dollar entertainment empire that at its 1970s peak included TV shows, a jazz festival and a string of Playboy Clubs whose cocktail waitresses wore bunny ears and cottontails.
