The Point: Hugh Hefner’s Real Legacy


He remade women in the picture of male fantasies. For the Colson Center, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner upheld divided last week, and he left behind a opposite and in many ways worse universe than the one he entered.

But his genuine bequest wasn’t just mainstreaming pornography. As my BreakPoint colleague, Shane Morris forked out at Patheos, by making promiscuity demeanour cold and classy, Hefner contributed to the passionate revolution’s devaluing of women.

Women are different creations, with the ability to grow life! Because of that, sex has always been risky—or as University of Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus puts it—“expensive.”

Maybe that’s because Hefner’s substructure contributed so much income to Planned Parenthood, or even to help legalize abortion-on-demand.


But the inexpensive sex that Hefner envisioned is some-more dear than we realize. The little lives lost, the marriages destroyed, and the men deferential to publishing in the arise of Hefner’s series infer it.
