It is hard to believe now, but Hugh Hefner grew up in a strict conservative environment. His parents made their fortune as teachers, and they cared about their son’s piety. Hugh was not allowed to participate in his classmates’ parties; he couldn’t go to the cinema and read books, which were not included into school plan.

And during many years Hugh Hefner’s life was too reasonable. He entered the University, married his school sweetheart and then found a job of a copywriter in Esquire magazine. Everything had changed, when he was fired. Hugh asked his boss to increase his salary for $5, and when he was refused, Hugh left his job and borrowed $8, 000 to start his own magazine.

Hef founded the legendary magazine in 1953. Playboy gained international popularity, when half-naked Marilyn Monroe appeared on its cover.
