Hugh Hefner changed American society forever. There is little uncertainty that Playboy author Hugh Hefner has turned out to be a standout amongst the most questionable figures of the past 50 years. From his exceptionally broadcasted way of life to his suggestive magazine, to his multi-million dollar organisation, Hefner has assumed a an important part in reshaping America’s social values. Hefner profoundly affected American culture, in the regions of publicising, business, legislative issues, consumer values, and sexual transparency. We frequently overlook that even in the 1960s, wedded characters in TV sitcoms slept in twin beds.

Hefner offered in Playboy a snazzy model for the cutting edge male, asking a standard of urbane, honourable conduct. Albeit some blamed Hefner for corrupting ladies as sexual items, Playboy also toppled conventional sex guidelines by supporting economic opportunity, social equality and abortion rights for women.

As of late, Playboy has seen its impact – and benefit – decrease. Yet, in its prime, Hefner’s creation gave the world another thought for what constitutes a fruitful life for American men. Playboy both caused and reflected essential changes in legislative issues, culture and trade.

Love him or hate him, you can’t deny the impact this man had on culture and society. We may have been living in a different world altogether if it weren’t for Hugh Hefner and Playboy Magazine.

RIP Hugh Hefner.
