Hugh Hefner 'Hosted Sex Workers' At Playboy Mansion's Weekly 'Pig Night' Ritual

Hugh Hefner 'Hosted Sex Workers' At Playboy Mansion's Weekly 'Pig Night' Ritual

Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion was host to a weekly sex party, dubbed ‘Pig Night’, upcoming documentary Secrets of Playboy claims.


According to Hefner’s former girlfriend Sondra Theodore, the event began with two pimps bringing ‘carloads’ of women to the mansion.

The documentary suggests that ‘Pig Night’ would start as a dinner party and quickly descend into sex parties, with the sex workers receiving ratings and quick medical checks before slipping out of the room with famous movie and TV stars.


TMZ reports that while those living at the mansion, and those who attended the parties, knew what the event was called, Hefner insisted that no one call the sex workers pigs to their face, or let them know what the event was being called behind their backs.

The upcoming Secrets of Playboy docuseries has already begun to release previously unknown details surrounding life at the Playboy Mansion. With claims that Hugh Hefner’s dog became addicted to cocaine and that drug use at the house was a ‘necessary evil’. Ironic considering Hefner’s wife and children must remain drug-free to access the fortune left to them by the business mogul.

Hugh Hefner, the founder of the Playboy brand, courted controversy throughout his life and continued to do so following his death in 2017 at age 91.


Immediately following his death reports came out stating that Hefner would be buried next to film star Marilyn Monroe in a plot he had bought for $75,000 (£56,000). This led to outrage from many due to Hefner’s treatment of Monroe during her life. Monroe was the cover star for the first edition of Playboy magazine in 1953 after Hefner published a nude photograph of her which he'd bought for $200 (£149).

Speaking on the podcast Power: Hugh Hefner in December 2021, another of Hefner’s former girlfriends, Holly Madison revealed the strict rules she, and other women, had to follow while living in the Playboy Mansion. Madison, who has previously compared living in the Playboy Mansion to being in a cult, stated that the women had to follow rules about how they looked, how they could date and where they were allowed to go.

Madison also claimed that Hefner would take unsolicited nude photos of the women living in the mansion in order to exert further control over them, comparing this to the act of ‘revenge porn’.


Secrets of Playboy is set to premiere on 24 January on A&E.
