Should Hugh Hefner really be idolised?

October 11, 2017

Those who brand Hefner as a ‘legend’ or ‘icon’ may say that he deserves our admiration because of his campaigns for contraception, abortion and the sexual revolution. Purely based on those facts, I agree, as those are all necessary elements of a contemporary world. It shouldn’t be forgotten that Hefner was a hedonist- he believed in dominating life in pleasures. Abortion and contraception are the mere ingredients that helped him live this hedonistic life as carefree as possible.
