Hugh Hefner, the founder of the world-famous Playboy magazine, died Wednesday at 91, his representative said.
On Wednesday night, the official Twitter account of the magazine confirmed the death of the publishing magnate, publishing the news accompanied by an image of Hefner in which you can read one of his most remembered sayings: "Life is too short as if to live the dream of another person ".
Hugh Hefner founded the Playboy magazine in 1953, which meant a real controversy in the North American society of the time by all the schemes that were breaking.
Hugh Hefner was the true precursor of graphic eroticism in the early 1950s. When the nudes were relegated to marginal magazines and semicandestines, he claimed human sexuality. With a playful tone, but in a context where freedom of expression, serious journalism and literature fit.
In August 2005 he starred in the E! Girls of the Playboy Mansion, a television program that showed the internal dynamics of the famous house of Hefner in Beverly Hills while living with three of his girlfriends, known as "bunnies."
