Hugh Hefner bought the house in 1974, when he moved to LA, and lived there for 43 years, until his death in 2017.
Life at the Playboy mansion may have seemed like a continuous pajama party, but inside, things were on a strict schedule, by day. Even though, indeed, most of Hugh Hefner’s time was spent in pajamas. He had over 200 sets, in 20 different colors, plus assorted satin robes, as he confessed.
In this casual outfit, he also greeted his guests, but also participated in family movie nights, because he was a fierce moviegoer, who liked classic movies.
His girlfriends, who were not few at all – Hefner had a real modern harem of about 20 girlfriends, apart from his official partners – had a stricter schedule than that of a teenager from a typical American family, and at 9 p.m., at the latest, they were at home. On a weekly basis, the girls received an allowance from Hugh, which always followed a typical humiliation. In fact, everything was subject to extraordinary rigor, and Kendra Wilkinson, a former Playboy model and Hef’s former girlfriend, said she felt constantly monitored, as if in a constant state of siege.
Read here what was the daily schedule, at the Playboy mansion, how severe and obsessed with control Hefner was, how much money each “bunny” received each week, what he was allowed to spend, and see a amazing photo gallery.
