“None of the women were there, sorry to burst the bubble,” revealed Holly, who dated Hugh from 2001 to 2008.
She added that the women all thought sleeping with Hugh was a “chore” but that they had to do it for fear of being “thrown out of the house”.
“We thought it was a duty we had to do or we’d get kicked out of the house,” she explained. “And everyone wanted to let it go as quickly as possible.”

She claimed that Hugh often remained silent during sex, calling him “a bump on the log in the middle of the bed.”
‘He wouldn’t move. He would be like a bump on the log in the middle of the bed,” she continued of having sex with Hugh, who died in 2019 at the age of 91.

“You literally sit there naked and have sex in front of a group of people who hate you and talk shit about you while having sex, and you can hear it. It was just like hell.’
Earlier this year, Madison opened up about her experiences at the “iconic” mansion as part of the A&E docu-series Secrets of Playboy.

“We were all kind of freaked out and expecting to see Hef as this really good guy. They started feeling like, “Oh, he’s not what they say in the media,” she said on the show.
She also claimed that Hefner once “yelled at her” for cutting her hair and claimed he told her the new “do” made her “look old, tough, and cheap.”
‘I [was] felt like I had to look like everyone else,” she said. “My hair was naturally very long and I was just like, ‘I’m going to cut my hair off so I can look at least a little bit different.’ ”
But Madison claimed that the magazine’s editor’s reaction to her new look wasn’t positive at all.
She said: “I came back with short hair and he freaked out on me and he yelled at me and said it made me look old, tough and cheap.”
She also spoke further on their first night together on the show, explaining, “He was literally pushed onto me.
“And after it happened I was just mortified and embarrassed and it had a lot more emotional impact on me than I thought it would.
“It wasn’t like the thought of possibly having sex with him repelled me that much. It was more the group aspect that was really out of my comfort zone.
