Former Playboy bunnies reveal the dark side of having unprotected orgies with Hugh Hefner
| Last updated
Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt have revealed the disturbing details of their sexual encounters with the late mogul Hugh Hefner.
While appearing on the Juicy Scoop With Heather McDonald podcast, the former Playboy bunnies opened up about some of the unprotected orgies that would go on at the infamous Playboy mansion.
Bridget recalled on her first night, she only wanted to watch Hef and other Playmates have sex, but eventually was pressured into it.
She said: “I was still just gonna watch and then [one of the other Playmates] was like, ‘Aren’t you gonna go?’ It was like, ‘You need to go'.
"And I was like, I would rather not. And she’s like, ‘Well, then you probably won’t be invited back'.”
She continued: “So then I was like, OK. And I’d seen what everybody else was doing, so I knew that this was, like, a 10-second thing. I mean, definitely no more than a minute.”
While Hugh’s former girlfriend Holly admitted that she had ‘blocked’ out many experiences as she was routinely forced into having sex with the Playboy editor-in-chief.
She said she would try to ‘get it done as quick as possible’.
These encounters were often done without condoms and Bridget said she would try and get in first because of the risk of sexually transmitted infections.
"You were hoping everyone’s in the same situation, and there is a doctor on staff," she said.
"You’re hoping everybody is being checked out, and everybody is being...I say this in quotes...‘monogamous’ to that relationship, but you don’t know.
"If there’s new girls coming up, which there often were, like, I just wanted to be first and be done. And I felt like that was the cleanest way."
Holly even said that Hugh would often take nude photos of the girls while intoxicated and became fearful of the ‘mountain of revenge porn’ he possessed.
In 2001, Holly moved into the mansion at 21 and began dating Hugh shortly after. A year later, Bridget moved in at 28, becoming one of the 'main' girlfriends as well.
Holly also has openly discussed the gruesome details of her time at the mansion in her 2015 memoir Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny.
In the book, she discloses that sex was a requirement when living with Hef, and he often pressured women into taking drugs.
Holly recalled her first time going out with Hefner; he presented her with a Quaalude and called them ‘thigh openers’.
And while Holly turned down the illegal substance, many Playmate hopefuls accepted.
In A&E's documentary Secrets of Playboy, she said: "They weren't commonly available then — I don't even know exactly how he was getting them.
"I know most girls my age were not doing them, and didn't know what they made you feel like. And I'm sure a lot of those girls didn't know what they were at all."
