(Newser) – Hugh Hefner gives a wide-ranging interview to Esquire, including this little bit of TMI: Asked how many women he's slept with, he says, "How could I possibly know? Over a thousand, I'm sure. There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn't married. You have to keep your hand in." Of course, he's married now. And of Crystal Harris, his onetime runaway bride, he says he "saved the best till last."

Esquire writer Chris Jones describes the marriage as one of "comfort and security" rather than "white-hot passion," shocking no one; Harris seems to corroborate this idea. "Hef loves me more than anybody else in a relationship ever has," she says. "It took me time away to realize that. I think I realized that here is where I'm meant to be." Adds Hef, "All our friends think it's made in heaven. It's only people who don't know us, who simply see us as stereotypes in terms of age and beauty." Click for the full profile.

I find it pathetic, and symptomatic of our society that feeds into it, that THIS is even a news story. Who cares, and why is that even an appropriate question to write a news story on? Does it matter how many women he's slept with? Maybe to you, Evann. PLEASE...get some good material.

I bet his wife wakes up every day, eyeballs him and thinks "Oh crap, he's still alive"

Hey Hugh can I have one of your girlfriends?? After all, Obama wants wealthy people to spread the wealth.
