Former porn mogul Hugh Hefner has been portrayed as a rapist and sexual predator by several women who have been a part of his porn empire for decades.

Audrey Husky she is the last woman to use the documentary “Playboy Secrets” from A&E to unmask the late porn mogul Hugh Hefner for rape, adding new details that other former playmates have revealed about the “sexual abuse factory” which was supposedly the Playboy mansion.

According to Huskey, she was invited to Los Angeles in 1994 to take test photos for Playboy magazine. At the time, Hefner’s then wife, Kimberley Conradwho reportedly convinced Hefner to abandon his polyamorous ways when they married in 1989, was out of town.

After the session, Hefner invited Huskey to his room and told him he wanted to examine his photos. He was hesitant. “I was sitting at the bottom of the stairs deciding whether to go up or not”, he remembered. Eventually, he decided he couldn’t miss the chance. But, he said: “I had no thoughts in mind that something bad was going to happen. “

Hefner showed him the photos as promised then “He immediately accompanied me to bed. I sat down, she was on my right and pulled out a joint (of marijuana), she just lit it. And now I’m starting to get speechless, I’m not talking, I’m like, ‘What? This is all happening so fast. ‘”he remembered.

After Hefner handed him the joint, Huskey said the man started “dropping his pants”. “I froze. He got on top of me and I froze. ” She said.

Has continued: “I didn’t say anything. I didn’t give him permission. Was I going to? If I said no, would he stop? I don’t know.”

After Hefner had sex with her, Huskey said: “He accompanied me to the pension. I didn’t know what to think that night. I cried until I fell asleep. You know, this is not a fairytale, this is what I signed up for. “

“I was afraid”, He explained. “I thought I was in trouble: it’s his home, his power, his company, so I have to shut my mouth and go home.”

The next day, Huskey said she felt so emotionally paralyzed she couldn’t get out of bed and canceled a second photo shoot for Playboy. Once she left Los Angeles and came home, “I received a letter in the mail. It was a dismissal letter. Her photos never appeared in the magazine.

Huskey says Conrad finally found out about the encounter and approached her to ask if she had gone to the bedroom. “promptly” or if Hefner had invited her.

“Of course he invited me”, Huskey said in Playboy Secrets, “But I didn’t tell him. I didn’t want to get him in trouble. This is crazy. He didn’t care about me or what happened to me, and I was protecting him. That was all. They threw me and I shut my mouth. “

He said he spent years processing his alleged assault. “It changes you”, She said, “Especially the way you allow men to treat you sexually. And it took me a long time to understand it all ”.

He also made it clear that he didn’t share his story in hopes of getting publicity. Instead, she said, she hoped to finally achieve a sense of “freedom, freedom from keeping such a dirty secret inside for so long. Freedom for all those who are happening to stop and talk and say ‘no’ “.

“I wish I had the courage to say something a long time ago,” he added.

Sondra Theodore, Hefner’s girlfriend from 1976 to 1981, was the one who inspired Huskey to speak out by sharing his story in Secrets of Playboy. But it also took decades for Theodore to find the courage to say anything, decades in which she remained friends with Hefner, also marrying and having two daughters with one of her best friends, who had worked for Playboy.

“If I admitted (how he treated me), it turned my story, the fairy tale, into a nightmare. And many people counted on that fairy tale, like my own children “He explained. “My daughter grew up looking at those pictures thinking I was a princess, you know?”

He said it was easy to fall back into old patterns and keep quiet about his trauma because Hefner’s exclusive inner circle was. the only family he knew.

Ultimately, however, it was her desire to protect her family, especially her children, that prompted her to take on Hefner. “I saw him indoctrinate my daughter”, he has declared.

He never touched it, otherwise it would have killed him. but he was the same [que me había pasado]: When she walked into a room, he spotted her and made her feel special. And I told him: ‘You can’t have it, don’t touch it’ “, Sondra counted

Many of the women who told their stories in Playboy Secrets, however, had no one to weigh on; all they had were dreams of getting Hefner’s attention and make a name for yourself in the pages of Playboy.

This was the case with Susie Krabacher, whose alleged rape took place when she visited Hefner’s bedroom to run for Playmate of the Year. Surviving child rape at the hands of her grandfather, Krabacher finally felt “safe” with an older man when she met Hefner. “I trusted him a lot”She said. “It really made me feel like he cared about me like a member of the family.”

This type of calculated bond can be a common form of grooming, explained Dr. Kate Balestrieri, a sex and traumatic therapist on the show.: “Predators don’t come with a bulletin board that says, ‘This is how I’m going to hurt you.’ They go out of their way to convince you that you are safe and that there is a special bond.

And as the docuseries have repeatedly tried to illustrate, Hefner used the vulnerability, trust and aspirations of women against him. “Many girls have ambitions, men have ambitions”, said Theodore. “It didn’t give him the right to do what he did.”

Krabacher acknowledged that Hefner’s group of accusers remains small: “Right now, only a few of us are talking openly about really embarrassing things.”
