esjfttome* AlOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, APRIl 21, 1966 2nd Section ONE SURE WAY TO ATTRACT attention to a book of an article Is to feature one little word - SEX] Everybody Is Interested . in that. The book doesn't even have to actually be very sexy because people will manage to read quite a bit of It anyway, while looking for the lurid parts. On a TV situation comedy the other night a guy sold 2,000 copies of a history of the Roman Empire, written 25 years previously, simply by ballyhoolng It as very sexy literature 1 - o EVEN GRACE HAS SKIRTED around the subject of sex In this column. It attracted far more attention than It should have because it was by no means my best writing. The reputation has also followed me down here. The husband of one of my friends heard that 1 wrote a column about men, home, kids, etc., and he asked If I also wrote about sex. I admitted I did occasionally. So now he ignores the church plays and programs on which I slave so hard, and although he's never read Woman's World, he calls me "That Sex Columnist." Seems to me it would be more flattering to be called that sexy columnist. - o - THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF sex, both good and bad. But it's kind of like Florida weather, even when it's bad, It's pretty good. Hugh Hefner, originator of Playboy magazine and the Bunny Clubs has made millions from sex - or rather from the illusion of sex. There's quite an article about him in a recent issue of the Saturday Evening Post. I learned some new words from reading it. "Ambient" isoneofthem. It means roving about. - o- MR. HEFNER'S EMPIRE IS estimated to be worth $70 million and besides the magazine and clubs, consists of book publishing, calendars, record albums, a model agency and some 90 other items from cuff links to Caribbean cruises. The Bunnies, in case you hadn't heard, bear little resemblance to the Molly Cottontail who frequented Mr. McGregor's garden. They are girls architecturally deformed so that most of their weight is up front and these Bunnies are strictly for display purposes. You can look but not touch. - o - ACCORDING TO THE ARTICLE, Mr. Hefner works really hard, often 30 to 40 hours at a stretch, editing and planning the magazine and developing and recording what he very seriously bills as "The Playboy Philosophy." The Philosophy is dedicated to a crusade against censorship, sexual repression and American puritanism in general. Although a hutch of his famous Bunnies lives on the top two floors of his mansion, Mr. Hefner doesn't have time to get in any lab work for his Philosophy. - o ACCORDING TO MY OLD MARRIED WOMAN'S PHILOSOPHY, it's a strange sort of freedom Mr. Hefner advocates - one that reduces sex to a spectator sport for like, the policy with the Bunnies you can look but not touch. However, Mr. Hefner says he finds, "Playboy fulfills all my needs and drives. And I suspect that it does the same for a lot of other people." Isn't that a rather sad comm«nts[ry J -On-Nvhat wls "meant'by" ouTXIreatcJr to be one of the most deeply meaningful, exciting, and even holy forces in our lives ? • - o - THE PHILOSOPHY ALSO SEEMS to me rather juvenile and reminiscent of some of the things I hear from my gang of 8 to 12 year old boys. The other day they got hold of a copy of "Playboy." It had been hidden in the dresser drawer of one of the kid's father, who bought it, so he said, for the purpose of reading the last James Bond story. Naturally, I eavesdropped a bit before I took the magazine away from the boys. (How do you think I get most of my material?) The comments were quite revealing. - o - "Let's look at the picture of You are supposed to laugh ONE NINE YEAR OLD SATO, the lady without any clothes on. at that." So they laughed. An eleven year old said, "My pop says I'll be getting interested in girls pretty soon and I already like Janie." There followed a short period of roughhousing during which the young lover was quite thoroughly pummelled. "Hey, did you ever tell Janie you like her?", somebody asked. The answer was, "I should say not I Once I told a girl I liked her and she slapped me right in the face. I know this much about sex - you can't hit a girl back 1" - o- WELL, I SUSPECT THAT SEX is here to stay. It's already survived the indigestion Adam got when he ate Eve's apple, the Victorian period when anything pertaining to sex was strictly hush-hush and the Kinsey reports. So I guess sex will still be popular in spite of anything Playboy does to try to change it. It might even still be around when test tubes take over the producing of offspring 1 - o - WE HAD ANOTHER ALMOST visit from Algonans this week. Somebody tried to phone us but we had telephone trouble and Jean couldn't find out who it was. The next night Bill Dau phoned from St. Pete and told us it was he who had called. I had a good visit with Hertha, too. They were on their way home from the Keys and were spending Easter with the Deans at St. Pete. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF APRIL 17 through 23, people having birthdays include Daniel Kuester, Teri Herbst, Dr. D.
