Holly Madison Reveals Hugh Hefner Took And Shared Non-Con N*de Pics Of Her

“It’s kind of revenge p**n before I even knew what revenge p**n was.”

Holly Madison was one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends. Four years after the passing of the Playboy Mansion owner, the 41-year-old reveals what it was like living with a man in his 70s along with other Playmates.

She first dated the publisher when he was 75 and Madison felt like “Stockholm Syndrome” was the right word to describe her state of mind.

The women at Playboy Mansion were infamously known to be pitted against one another by Hefner before his death in 2017 at the age of 91.

She told the host, Amy rose Spiegel, “When girls would go out with [Hefner] and come back to his room after, he was constantly taking photos of these women on his disposable camera.”

“And these women were almost always intoxicated. I know I was — heavily intoxicated,” she added.

“They wouldn’t just be his regular girlfriends,”

“They would be new girls who were joining him for a night for the first time or women who had flown out from across the country to test for a centerfold in allegedly professional conditions. And they’d be invited out and oftentimes would be pressured, not necessarily directly by him.”

“He’s constantly taking all these pictures, and he would make copies of all the pictures and hand them out to everyone who had gone out that night.”

She described what it was like, “So if you were messed up and if you were in his bathtub with your top off and some other girl is doing some sexually explicit pose on you and he took a picture of that on his disposable camera, he’d make a copy and give it to everyone that night and put it in a scrapbook.”

“I found out years later he wanted to donate his scrapbooks to a public library.”

“It’s kind of revenge p**n before I even knew what revenge p**n was. It’s like, you’re taking these pictures. They’re not consensual because you’re so wasted.”

“And the next morning you find out they’ve been given out to everybody who was out with you.”

Holly continued, “I don’t know if he just assumed that was OK because all these women want to be in the magazine so bad. ‘They must be OK with getting naked, so I’m going to take pictures while they’re wasted and just hand those pictures out.'”

“That’s the kind of thing that can make you feel kind of stuck in a situation or overinvested.”

“It’s one of those things that makes you feel a little more backed into a corner.”

It didn’t help that all those years she tried to speak out against the glorified Playboy Mansion was shut down with ‘misogyny.’

“There are always people who get mad because I speak out,” she later said. “‘She knew what she was getting into.’ I can’t tell you how many people say that to me. I don’t know how they can form that opinion because they don’t know anything about the context of the time period or what people knew about his private life.”

Among some of his psychological tactics was “love bombing”: he showers young women with cheesy compliments to manipulate them.

“[Hefner] would say all the things that I know now are so cliche for older men, trying to groom younger women, like, ‘You’re so mature for your age, you’re so giving, you’re not selfish like the other girls.'”

The ‘Secrets of Playboy’ docuseries has also women making claims that aligned with Madison’s comments, such as the use of drugs, despite Hefner’s denials.
