Attention Whore Offsets Young Hef’s Homo Loving

Hugh Hefner’s always been one of our heroes. We would definitely argue that without him, and the sexual revolution he helped fuel, there never would have been a gay rights uprising. Plus, he totally had it in his younger days and no doubt fueled a few gay fantasies at the Playboy Club.

Considering his free love philosophy, we’re surprised by the timidity of Hefner’s one gay experience, of which author Steven Watts writes about in his new Hefner biography, Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream. Via NY Post:

The book also claims Hef once tried a gay tryst. “Hefner’s thirst for sexual experience became so strong that he even had a one-time homosexual experience,” Watts writes. “One evening in downtown Chicago he was propositioned and, according to Sellers, he ‘thought, what the hell. Found it an interesting experience. As far as I know, the guy just gave him [oral sex].'”

We expected more, Hefner.

Good thing there’s another celebrity keeping things kinky! “Which A-list actor, who yells from the rooftops that he is straight, approached a male Off-Broadway star in a bar and offered to pay him big bucks to watch him and another dude get it on in the rest room?” The only person we can think of is Mario Lopez, because he’s currently on Broadway, but does he qualify as A-list?

    Who cares?

    Twice I tried to leave non-explicit (no profanity) replies to a straight fellow commenter on the Huffington Post about this story, and both times my comments were automatically deleted for having “bad words”. The guy I was replying to used the slang for fellatio but that somehow got the nod of approval. I used the words “hetero” and “straight” and I get censored. WTF is this??

    Dear Marc.

    I care. Don’t “yell from the rooftops” that you’re straight if you’re not. It’s 2008. If you’re gay, come out.

    Pretending to be something that you’re not implies that there is somthing wrong with what you are.

    Agreed, Chris.

    Not that I care about every celeb’s personal life (which I don’t) but the constant protesting that you’re hetero (if you aren’t) is annoying.

    Also, Hef was kind of sexy back then.

    He reminded me of a slightly better-looking Tony Randall.

    Is Paul Newman up to his pld tricks again now that he’s about to kick the bucket?

    “Why are they always “A-List?” And A-ist what? An Abwercrombie and Fitch model could be deemed to be an A-Lister. But then again so coud Ashton Kutcher. Yeah, that’s it, Ashton Kutcher approached Chales Busch about F****ng Mario Lopez in the bathroom at Marie’s Crisis.

    “Shouting from the rooftops” sounds an awful lot like Tom Cruise to me. And that is not a mental image I want.

  • Alexa

    I don’t think Mario Lopez even qualifies as an actor.

  • Alex

    Could it be Terrence Howard??? Currently playing Brick (a closeted homo) who screams from the roof tops that he’s straight in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on BWay…

    Are you saying Hugh was gay? He was not. Having one same-sex experience no more makes you gay than having one-opposite sex experience makes you straight. Or makes you bisexual. It really depends on context and many many other factors. The context here screams, “straight guy trying it out once.”
