What a Creep: Hugh Hefner (Playboy Founder & Creep) TW: SA

What a Creep

What a Creep: Hugh HefnerSeason 14, Episode 10Playboy Founder & CreepOn September 17, 2017, Hugh Marston Heffner died at the age of 91. He was hailed in the press (for decades) as being solely responsible for the sexual revolution of the 60s, a champion of civil rights, a First Amendment warrior, a philanthropic activist, and a hero to women who would still be stuck home with sexless lives were it not for his brand Playboy. It was just a few weeks afterward that the ‘Me Too” movement began with the first articles about Harvey Weinstein being played out in the media and shitty people decrying “cancel culture” ever since. In this episode, I will talk about the ways Hef used manipulation to control and dominate the lives of people who worked for him and the horrendous legacy of his horrible relations with women that lasted for decades at the Playboy mansion.

Episode 94 The Colleen Gallagher Podcast - My Thoughts on Playboy Bunny, Hugh Hefner and The Adult Industry

The Colleen Gallagher Podcast

I started to hear about the rumors of this woman Holly coming forward about Hugh Hefner. I had no idea who she was or anything about Playboy except it being a magazine. Well, I began to watch the documentary that is being done on it and I have LOTS to say about this topic. I think it's easy to say that because we needed money, or we were young women that we did x, y, and z. However, it's giving so much power away in our life story and narrative. So if you have experienced trauma, especially around men and women dynamics I recommend listening to this episode as I share many healing tips to become empowered in painful, traumatic, and horrible events that occur in our life.I recommend getting my book An Uncompromised Life.
