Hugh Hefner’s teenage sons Marston and Cooper, whose mother is Playboy Playmate Kimberly Conrad, are split when it comes to their dad’s playboy philosophies. In the latest issue of Playboy, the boys share their thoughts on dating more than one woman at a time, living in the infamous Playboy Mansion, and taking over their father’s lusty, lucrative empire. It seems that Marston has a more traditional view on interacting with the opposite sex, while Cooper is more enthusiastic about his dad’s overtly free-spirited ways.
The two are most in conflict when it comes to having more than one lady companion. “I’m not going to have multiple girlfriends,” Marston claims. “Not at the same time. I can’t imagine that.” Cooper, on the other hand, says, “I can imagine doing that. I don’t think it’s an odd thing to do. You date around to try to find a connection with some girl.”
It appears that their mother shares the same sentiments as Marston. “One girl comes in the front door while the other one gets pushed out the back,” Cooper explains, going on to say that his mother has told him, “’We do not have a revolving door in this house!’ She’s all about one girlfriend at a time.”
Cooper also reveals his hopes for the future of the company, sharing, “If I were to take over the company or have a say in what’s going on, I’d want the girls to be presented more as they were in the pictorials back in the 1950s and 1960s — kind of artsy, classy. I would like to bring back that retro-class feel.”
He also talks about how life at the Playboy Mansion, however great it may seem to the people outside of its gates, can actually get monotonous. “They don’t get it when you say, ‘There’s nothing to do there,’” he gripes. “But when you live here and come here every single day, you see the same things. Anybody else would be like, ‘Let’s go see monkeys!’ But I don’t want to see monkeys. I’d rather go bowling than play with monkeys.”
