Hugh Hefner & the (Homo) Sexual Revolution

June 6, 2023


PLAYBOY founder, Hugh Hefner, 
died September 27, 2017. 
No man has done more 
to destroy family values 
by making sex an end in itself.
While the PLAYBOY philosophy
was touted as the
height of masculinity, 
it was really
homosexual in essence
Heterosexuals have families.
Homosexuals have sex. 
This key article describes how baby boomers were brainwashed to behave like homosexuals, and eschew family in favor of promiscuity. This social engineering was designed to induct society into a satanic cult, Jewish cabalism (Freemasonry.) see also: Makow  How Society Became a Sex Cult
(Originally posted in 2001)
by Henry Makow PhD
What sort of man reads PLAYBOY?
He is fastidious about his appearance, his home, and his possessions. He wants as much sex as possible and chooses sexual partners mostly on the basis of appearance. He is self-absorbed and doesn't want emotional involvement or commitment. He thinks a woman would stifle him and children would be a burden.
Does this sound like homosexual behaviorIt is also the masculine ideal purveyed by PLAYBOY magazine to men since the 1950's. 
At the End of Time, when they open the envelope labeled "What is the essence of manhood?" I suspect it will say: "Looking after women and children. Men act as God's agent by creating and supporting new life. The family is the red blood cell of society." But in 1972, when circulation peaked at seven million, 75% of college men got their ideas about masculinity from PLAYBOY, at an incalculable price to themselves, women, children, and society.
The similarity between the PLAYBOY and homosexual ideal is no coincidence. "The Kinsey Report" (1948) shaped current mainstream attitudes to sex. It championed unfettered sexual expression and became the manifesto of the counterculture and sexual revolution. 
Kinsey said that deviant and unhealthy sexual behavior was so common as to be normal. 
Thanks to psychologist Dr. Judith Reisman, we now know that the "Kinsey Report" was a fraud. Alfred Kinsey, left, a Rockefeller-funded University of Indiana zoologist, pretended to be a Conservative family man. In fact, he was a child molester and homosexual pervert who seduced his male students and forced his wife and associates to participate in pornographic home movies.
Kinsey's agenda, in Reisman's words, was "to supplant what he saw as a narrow procreational Judeo Christian era with a promiscuous "anything goes" bi/gay pedophile paradise." (Crafting Gay Children: An Inquiry, p.4) 
More than 25% of his sample were prostitutes and prison inmates including many sex offenders. Kinsey, who died prematurely of "orchitis," a lethal infection in his testicles that followed years of orgiastic "self-abuse", said 10 percent of American men were gay when, in fact, only two percent were. 
Kinsey and his team of pedophiles abused 2,000 infants and children to prove that they have sexual desires. 
Reisman concludes: "America's growing libidinous pathologies...taught in schools...and reflected in our fine and popular arts, the press, law and public policy largely mirror the documented sexual psychopathologies of the Kinsey team itself." (Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences)
The Kinsey Report inspired Hugh Hefner to start PLAYBOY in 1953. Hefner said the Kinsey Report "produced a tremendous sexual awakening, largely because of media attention...I really view Kinsey as the beginning. Certainly, the book was very important to me." 
With messianic fervor, Playboy took its message of sexual freedom to the American male who, in the 1950's and 1960's, still consecrated sex for marriage. 
But the freedom was illusory. Playboy's aim, the aim of all pornographers, was to hook men on the glossy fantasy. To do this, they had to prevent them from finding true satisfaction in marriage. 
In Reisman's words, "Playboy was the first national magazine to exploit college men's fears of women and family commitment. Playboy offered itself as a reliable, comforting substitute for monogamous heterosexual love." (Soft Porn Plays Hardball, p 47)
Thus "sworn enemies," Playboy and feminists, found common ground in their hatred of healthy heterosexuality expressed in the nuclear family. As a result of the (homo)sexual revolution, society now suffers from epidemics of family breakdown, pornography, impotence, child sexual abuse, sado sexual violence, teen pregnancy, a cocktail of STD's and, of course, AIDS. The birthrate has plummeted by 60% since 1960 and is now below replacement level. 
Homosexuality is a developmental disorder caused when a male child fails to bond with his father. Psychologist Richard Cohen, in "Coming Out Straight: Understanding and Healing Homosexuality" (2000) argues persuasively that, by having sex with men, the adult gay is trying to compensate for father-love denied in adolescence. Cohen was a homosexual himself and is now married with three children. 
He attributes lesbianism to a woman's reaction to being rebuffed or abused by her father. He has cured hundreds of homosexuals but is under constant attack for undermining the gay political agenda, (i.e. redefining societal norms.)
Psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover has pointed to another cause of homosexuality. A 1990 survey of 1000 gays shows that an older or more powerful partner physically assaulted 37% of them before the age of 19. (Homosexuality and American Public Life, 1999, p.24). In addition, according to Anne Moir in "Why Men Don't Iron," some men may be "born gay" due to fetal hormone imbalances. They seem to be a minority.
In 1973, the Rockefellers bullied the American Psychological Association into proclaiming homosexuality normal. Together with feminists (who believe heterosexuality is inherently oppressive), gays began to dismantle all heterosexual institutions: masculinity, femininity, marriage, the family, the boy scouts, sports, the military, and the education system. 
Using their control of the media, the Rockefellers (i.e. Illuminati bankers) largely dictate our cultural sensibility. They are responsible for the obsession with pornography and the occult that pervades television, music videos and the Internet. 
This state of arrested human development is characteristic of homosexuals who cannot form long-term relationships with the opposite sex. With straight women acting like men and vice-versa, with TV and schools promoting it, we are being turned into homosexuals. 
Gay activists talk about "normalizing" their gross-out sexuality and "de-sensitizing" straights by flaunting it. I was livid when I took my 10-year-old son to see Adam Sandler's movie Billy Madison and heard one teenage male youth in the film casually ask another: "Would you rather bone Pamela Anderson or a young Jack Nicholson?" 
Just as Communists once conned do-gooders to think radicalism was chic, gays define trendy for gullible liberals today.
Gay and feminist activists think traditional morality was invented to perpetuate an unjust status quo. In fact, morality is the accumulated wisdom of mankind regarding what is healthy and fulfilling. Perversion is the deviation from what is healthy. 
(Relic of bygone days?)
Heterosexual morality places sex in the context of love and/or marriage because it "humanizes" the sexual appetite. It ensures that the most intimate physical act between two people expresses a commensurate emotional-spiritual bond. This is the only way sex can be truly satisfying for both men and women. It is also healthy for society because it provides for the natural and necessary outcome of sexual love, children.
With Hugh Hefner's help, Alfred Kinsey detached sex from love and procreation. He reduced it to titillation like an amusement park ride, or relief like urination. 
Homosexuals seem to champion anonymous bathroom sex; some fornicate through a hole in a cubicle wall. Most have 10s -100s of partners each year. In less extreme form, this is the model heterosexuals have adopted. Recently a social columnist enviously described straight couples she knows who have just broken up: "they're out partying, having the time and the sex, it seems of their lives."
In conclusion, the "sexual revolution" was really a triumph of perverse homosexual norms and values. The gay-feminist agenda is to redefine healthy as pathological and vice-versa and they have succeeded. 
In 60 short years, almost all sexual constraints have dissolved and heterosexual society is reeling. The cultural and social breakdown will only get worse. We need a counterrevolution.

First Comment by Jude:
  The corporate sexual revolutionaries worked in the certain knowledge that there's nothing human beings are more insecure about than sex. As C.S Lewis wrote many years ago, many men engage in extra-marital shenanigans, not out of overwhelming desire, but in order to reassure themselves of their virility, modernity, or whatever. In my experience, the most avid bed-hoppers among men are rarely the ones most appreciative of women - even on the physical level. Instead, they tend to have pronounced narcissistic personality traits. 
This ties in with something else Lewis said: the lascivious man thinks of women's bodies, the lascivious woman thinks of her own. The Playboy style stud has a feminine personality when it comes to sex - he's thinking primarily of his own starring role as Don Juan.The most promiscuous (in the heterosexual sense) guy I ever knew outed himself to his friends as bisexual on a drunken night out. Hefner himself admitted to engaging in homosexual swinging.

Eric B said (April 7, 2018):

I'm an intuitive Dr. Makow and I can tell you that Hefner and quite a few of his bunnies were dark/satanic in nature. Recent revelations are that there were underground chambers and tunnels affiliated with his mansion and I wouldn't be surprised at all if there were some human sacrifices going on as well. Interesting with the satanic crowd is that some of them have a penchant for sacrificing/abusing young males which is the case I believe with the Hefner crowd while others have an inclination to sacrifice females.

Connie said (September 28, 2017):

What Heffner REALLY did that was "gay" was to let men pick up a magazine and passively "absorb" their sexual thrills from a caricature, instead of actively pursuing a real woman, which requires working/learning/figuring out how to get her -- and keep her. Real women change over time, and you have to keep up.

G said (September 28, 2017):

Dear Henry, thank you for accurately and acutely covering Hefner and his perverted contribution to our society. Because of him I spent much of my adult life feeling embarrassed and wanting his invasive and exploitive free-for-all to finally end and go away forever. But it didn't; it just got more and more disgusting and more and more mainstream/in our face. No way to shield the children from its all-pervasive ooze. There are many ways to bring us back to decency but it will be a long, hard road, but so necessary and worth it.

BG said (September 28, 2017):

Consider how many families have been crushed and how many hearts have been torn to pieces because someone believed Hefner's gospel of free sex, "decent" pornography, and erotic liberation. When he was born, his Methodist mother wanted him to grow up and be a missionary - and in a way she got her wish. He did not invent pornography, but he was the first to institutionalize by making it "respectable" and mainstream. He was the harbinger of the new sexual ethic, fueling a revolution that has changed the globe in a way far worse than any war or disease ever could. He was a missionary who taught his message to the ugly end. He died yesterday as a pathetic, wrinkly playboy, perhaps still in those silk pajamas. We do not rejoice in his death (Eze. 18:23; 33:11). But we must recognize he died not as a successful philanderer, but a loser and a con man. He duped many into buying into his gospel of death and now stands before his Creator, explaining why he exploited so many made in precious His image. Lord, please have mercy.

AA said (June 18, 2015):

You impute the general decline in sexual morals to Playboy's promotion of hedonistic homosexual-type attitudes in men, yet homosexuality didn't really take off until well after the sexual revolution was in full swing.

The real problem was that feminists told women that marriage oppressed them and then told them that the key to throwing off their oppression was to go out and be promiscuous sluts. ...Which is what they did, much to the delight of the worst men -- who were thus effectively given sanction for their immorality. ("Hey, it's okay! Everybody's doing it!")

And women today are almost all sluts: a recent study found that the average (note: THE AVERAGE) Western woman will, during her life, spread her legs for no fewer than EIGHT men -- so her lucky husband can look forward to sharing his wife with an entire basketball team! ...Plus the coach! This is one of the reasons why decent men are choosing not to bother with women at all. It's not that they all want to be playboys -- it's that they have more sense than to live with a woman who doesn't love them enough to save themselves for them, and who will probably cheat on them, leave them, or both (women initiate the vast majority of divorces, and the courts favour women to the extent that the man can expect to lose pretty much everything, including his kids in a divorce). Plus there's STDs...

The attempt to cast MGTOWs as irresponsible, hedonistic playboys is wrong-headed: MGTOWs are a very diverse bunch -- some are indeed immature playboys, but there many who are quite the opposite (including divorced fathers who love their children and do not shirk their responsibilities towards them). These men are simply individuals who've looked at the situation, realized the catastrophe that has happened, and made a rational, sensible decision.

JJ said (June 16, 2015):

What sort of man reads PLAYBOY?

This describes an uncle of mine perfectly. He has a huge collection of Playboys from every year of their "golden era," as well as all of their merchandise and assorted ephemera, some of which he passed on to me. He's on his third marriage and has no children of his own. He also tried to kill me, but that's another story.

CR said (June 16, 2015):

The whole idea of "soft core pornography" is nothing new at all, if you have ever been in an art museum you would see that men have been infatuated with the image of women's naked bodies for centuries. Whether there was a hidden agenda pushing nude art in the past is another story, but that in itself is less harmful than the whole sexual revolution/MGTOW phenomenon. I wouldn't want my wife, daughter, or sister posing naked for either a painting or photo shoot, but the idea of men living without responsibilities in life in tantamount to genocide because they will either have no children or be worthless fathers in the case that an accident does happen.

I also take issue with Dan's statement that "women do not "enjoy sex because of sex". Ever. For women, sex is always about something else". If that were true then vibrators, sluts, nymphomaniacs, and lesbianism would not exist. It's true that some women use sex for material gain or to manipulate people, while women in a relationship will have sex when they are not really into it just to satisfy their man, but sometimes girls just want to get fucked. Things are not so black-and-white in reality.

Art said (June 15, 2015):

Great article.

But there's no way that they're gonna turn all of us gay.


Dear Art,

They already have in the sense that many more heterosexuals now seek promiscuous sex instead of marriage and family.


Adam said (November 12, 2012):

I took the time to click on the link to "Crafting Gay Children". It is a heavy read but worth it for the education in the extent to which homos are driving acceptance of their foul and filthy sexual aberrations.

Your respondent "David" mentions the book of Leviticus in which God issues a judgment on those who indulge in homosexuality. In the ancient nation of Israel which was initially a theocracy, homos suffered capital punishment in accordance with the judgment of God. This judgment was not wholly followed and as a result the practice of homosexuality increased.

It is for this same reason that homosexuality is increasing in the current civilization. Even before the existence of the nation Israel there were two cities in the Middle East area in the time of Abraham that God destroyed with something equivalent to a hail of meteorites because of their aberrant sexual practices which included homosexuality.

Homosexual practice runs counter to the reproduction of human beings. This may be one of the reasons for the drive for its acceptance in society. It plays right into the hands of those who seek to drastically reduce world population. Homosexuals are being used : they are tools for their own destruction and of course there is a Satanic aspect underlying all of this because Satan hates human beings.

James said (November 11, 2012):

Thank you once again for your insight and courage to alert your readers to the lies of our culture.

I believe there is a code of conduct that produces a better life that brings happiness, joy, and peace. But unfortunately if we want that life we need to obey the rules of the code. History show us that when man makes up his own code of conduct the culture he lives in plummets into depravity. We are witnessing that if we are willing to take our heads out of the sand and see our world as it really is.

RE said (November 11, 2012):

David is right in his response to your article. However, real change must come from the inside-out, not from the outside-in. That change can only be accomplished by a fundamental renewal of man's spirit by establishing a personal relationship with his Creator, a side from that, everything will stay the same. The enemy is well aware of this and has tried his utmost to deceive those, that followed Christian principals.

There is a movie, The Client List, available on YouTube, which demonstrated the results of the 'sexual revolution': Men becoming 'homemakers' and women the 'bread winners'. By slowly eroding the foundation - the family unit, you ultimately destroy society. In that, the enemy has been successful. Unless there is a divine intervention, our western society and what's left of our culture, we will go down the road of history as all previous great nations.

Klaus said (November 11, 2012):

Thanks again for emphasizing the relationship between sexual promiscuity and homosexuality. Straight men need to hear this. I was speaking with a man a few years ago who, for a year, had unrestrained sex with a woman who was also a sex addict. They had sex everywhere, sex, sex, sex in the car, at work, in every part of his parent's house, while driving, walking, doing dishes etc. etc. He had a very interesting way of describing it. He said, "it was almost gay". He had a bewildered look on his face when he said it because it was a funny way of saying it. And he said it with sadness because now he had memories that he didn't know what to do with. And where is he going to find another woman like that woman? And I believe he secretly was wondering what sex with men is like.

When he watched porn he would try to watch the porn that shows the least amount of the man's body as a means of self-control. And he would never hug a man. I have met quite a few homosexuals who admitted they had had unrestrained sex with women to the point that it was boring and unfulfilling before they turned to men. The gay community doesn't want to talk about this and about bisexuality. Don't stop talking about this issue.

David said (November 11, 2012):

Your latest article hits the nail on the head. Being a Gen Xer, I grew up with Playboy and I felt it was cool. I had no idea it was part of the homosexuality and feminism revolution.

I have no problem with one who chooses to be Gay. That is their choice. Many of these feminists and homosexuals have not read what the Jewish bible and the Christian bible say about homosexuality. God outlines in Leviticus and Deuteronomy what is normal behavior. The God of Israel does not want to suppress women. He wants to empower them.

When one engages in sinful behavior God will punish those people. God knew back then and even now how the nuclear family is the best cure for keeping society healthy. If everyone would take the time to read God's word instead of being brainwashed by those in charge, the USA and the rest of the western would would be in better shape.
