[1] One biography, released with Hefner's approval, mentions a fleeting homosexual experience during a period of intense sexual experimentation, probably in 1952: "Hefner's thirst for sexual experience became so strong that he even had a one-time homosexual experience. One evening in downtown Chicago he was propositioned and, according to Sellers, he 'thought, what the hell. Found it an interesting experience. As far as I know, the guy just gave him a blow job.'"
