Holly Madison has opened up further about her experience with the playboy founder, Hugh Hefner, during a recent appearance on the podcast: Power: Hugh Hefner. The 41-Year-Old claims Hefner took and circulated nude photos of the playmates and new girls who joined him a night without their consent.
Holly Madison has been very outspoken about her relationship with Hefner and her living situation.
Holly was considered his “main girlfriend when she was with Hefner.”
When girls would go out with [Hefner] and come back to his room after, Holly said he was constantly taking photos of these women on his disposable camera. “All these women were almost always intoxicated. I know I was heavily intoxicated.” Holly told podcast host Amy Rose Spiegel.
The duo dated from 2001 to 2008. They broke up because Madison wanted to get married and have kids.
Recently, Holly claimed Hefner, without their consent, took photos of his playmates on his disposable camera.
She added: “They wouldn’t just be his regular girlfriends. They would be new girls who were joining him for a night for the first time or women who had flown out from across the country to test for a centerfold in allegedly professional conditions. And they’d be invited out and often would be pressured, not necessarily directly by him.”
The 41-Year-Old told podcast host Spiegel that they were almost always intoxicated when Hefner took the photos.
“He’s constantly taking all these pictures, and he would make copies of all the pictures and hand them out to everyone who had gone out that night. So if you were messed up and if you were in his bathtub with your top off and some other girls are doing some sexually explicit pose on you, and he took a picture of that on his disposable camera, he’d make a copy and give it to everyone that night and put it in a scrapbook.”
Holly said Hefner also made copies of the pics & handed them out to everyone who had hung out with him.
Holly insisted she found out years later [that] Hefner wanted to donate his scrapbooks to a public library and further described the whole ordeal as a kind of revenge p*rn, noting it was nonconsensual due to the influence of alcohol. “It’s like you’re taking pictures. They’re not consensual because you’re wasted. And the next morning, you find out they’ve been given out to everybody who was out with you.”
She described the ordeal as a “kind of revenge p*rn,” noting it was nonconsensual due to alcohol influence.
“I don’t know if he just assumed that was OK because all these women want to be in the magazine so bad. They must be OK with getting naked, so I’m going to take pictures while they’re wasted and hand those pictures out. That’s the kind of thing that can make you feel kind of stuck in a situation or overinvested. It’s one of those things that makes you feel a little more backed into a corner.”
Madison had moved into Hefner’s mansion when she was 21 and began dating the Playboy mogul when he was 75.
Holly has since described her relationship with Hefner as “Stockholm syndrome.”
Holly had moved into Hefner’s mansion when she was 21 and reportedly started dating him when he was 75. The duo eventually split after roughly seven years together, and Madison has previously described the relationship as Stockholm Syndrome. Hefner, who passed away in 2017 at 91, infamously engaged in multiple s*xual relationships with young women at his mansion but often branded one as his main girlfriend and pit the others against each other.
Hefner, who died in 2017, was infamously engaged in multiple sexual relationships with young women.
And so far, Hefner’s legacy of the Playboy Mansion has been faced with severe criticism.
However, his s**ual encounters with women decades younger him and as the entire legacy of the Playboy Mansion has recently been flooded with criticisms. It had been claimed that Hefner provided Holly and other ex-Playmates with a copious amount of alcohol and drugs he called thigh-openers. Even Holly confirmed this in her 2015 memoir, titled Down The Rabbit Hole. Well, she has since been condemned for speaking out against Hefner.
She and other ex-Playmates had previously said Hefner gave them alcohol and drugs he called “thigh-openers.”
Holly had always had to deal with strangers’ misconceptions on how the whole situation worked.
She had always had to deal with strangers’ misconceptions on how the whole situation worked. People get infuriated and have since told Holly she knew what she was getting into. “I don’t know how they can form that opinion because they don’t know anything about the context of the time period or what people knew about his private life. I think it’s kind of a misogynistic thing.” Holly stated.
However, Holly’s comments come just over a month ahead of the release of Secrets of Playboy.
This comes just over a month before the release of Secrets of Playboy, a new docu-series set to chart and reexamine Holly and other ex-Playmates’ experiences through a modern scope. In the first teaser, which aired last week, Holly and other playmates Bridget Marquardt and Sondra Theodore opened about the realities of life at the mansion, with Theodore claiming there was strong hard drug use and that Quaaludes were used for s*x.
