Playboy mansion for sale - and it comes with Hugh Hefner

Quote:The Playboy Mansion, site of hundreds of wild parties, is for sale, but with a catch - it comes with its current owner, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

Playboy Magazine's parent company put the West Los Angeles estate on the market on Monday for $200m (£138m).

The five-acre property has appeared in numerous films and TV shows as a luxurious bachelor pad.

As a condition of the sale, Mr Hefner, 89, would be allowed to stay in his home of 45 years.

"The Playboy Mansion has been a creative centre for Hef as his residence and workplace... as it will continue to be if the property is sold," Playboy chief executive Scott Flanders said in a statement.

The mansion has 29 rooms, a wine cellar and a home theatre, but real estate experts say the home would need major upgrades to match current high-end properties in Beverly Hills.

However, buyers would get history. The backyard includes a swimming pool with the famous cave-like grotto where Playboy bunnies mixed with celebrities.

In addition to "bunnies", the estate is currently home to monkeys, cockatoos, peacocks, African cranes, parrots, toucans and pelicans. And the new owner could keep them - thanks to a rare zoo licence.

Mr Hefner bought the home in 1971 for $1m. The estate eventually replaced the original Playboy Mansion, which opened in 1959 in Chicago.

The proposed sale comes as Playboy has been making changes to its businesses as demand for nude pictures has dropped with online porn becoming ubiquitous.

The magazine announced last year that it would no longer publish photos of completely naked women in its US edition.

Hefner with it? Um.. ick.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I'm not sure I'd want to swim in the pool in the grotto either. ick. No amount of chlorine would make me feel better about it either. No

Should've jumped on the internet train as soon as possible.

Hugh Hefner is an American icon, by golly!

RE: Playboy
If I could afford it, I would totally buy it. Hef is old and you only need to let him live in it until he dies.

And I'd have no qualms about the grotto.

Think of all the people who jump into the baths at Lourdes...


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Playboy
Not too long ago (2007), as a young sailor down in Florida the local Navy Exchange announced they were considering suspending the sale of nudie mags. There was a minor uproar, and they kept the nudie mags. Today that would never happen. No one would bat an eye. Of course porn was everywhere on the internet in 2007, but you couldn't download it/view it on your phone. The smallest device most people would've viewed it on is a laptop - and a lot of people didn't have one. This is important if you are a young man who has to go months (or longer) without the company of a woman, or internet access in a place where your semi-privacy, your personal space, is about the size of two coffins - and in a room shared by dozens of other men. Thank science for technology! Nudie mags are pretty much obsolete, even for a niche market today.

I don't get it, do guys not have imaginations? I haven't had a date in 2 years Weeping and I never look at porn nor nude pics of guys on the net (not on purpose anyway but not that I haven't ever, curiosity) that never keeps me from taking care of business. My fantasies are quite good enough, even elaborate.

So if someone could explain this I'd appreciate it. I know, I know, they say guys are more visual. Really? That big of a difference? I'm pretty visual myself but still...
