Hugh Marston Hefner, the guy everyone knows as just “Hef”, is the founder of Playboy Magazine, which is perhaps the most popular adult magazine in the world. Despite being 88 years old, Hef is still the chief creative officer of Playboy Enterprises, the company that publishes Playboy Magazine. It all started back in the early 50’s, Hugh was only 27 years old when he published the magazine’s first issue, which at that time was called “Stag Party”. Even though subjects such as sexuality and nudism were considered a taboo back in those days, and that they were only featured in clandestine magazines, Marston was able to successfully introduce a new concept of graphic erotism. Playboy Magazine’s first issue featured Marilyn Monroe without her clothes on, Monroe’s inclusion in the magazine guaranteed its success immediately, 72,000 copies were printed, and approximately 52,000 copies were sold right away.
