Playboy's grotesque logistics used to exploit young women - Secrets of Playboy


During the 1990s, Playmates, including Pamela Anderson and Anna Nicole Smith, reach peak fame and young women flock to Los Angeles in hopes of being the next centerfold; men in Hefner's inner circle set up shadow mansions where women are exploited. Secrets of Playboy explores the hidden realities behind the fable and philosophy of the Playboy empire through today’s lens. Four years after Hefner’s death, insiders, colleagues, executives, Playmates and employees from all levels of the brand share the full story of what life within the Playboy world was truly like. Across ten hours, the series delves into the complex world Hugh Hefner created and examines its far reaching consequences on our culture’s view of power and sexuality.
