Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has lived through the Great Depression, Vietnam, and a World War, but it seems like the Sexual Revolution was the most influential part of his 86 years.

Hugh, who married 26-year-old Playmate Crystal Harris in December, admits that prior to wedding his most recent wife, he was with so many women, he lost count.

"How could I possibly know? Over a thousand, I'm sure," Hef tells Esquire. "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."

While his two previous marriages ended in divorce, Hef says he’s in this one for the long haul  and his inner circle isn’t surprised.

"All our friends think it's made in heaven," he says of his union with Crystal. "It's only people who don't know us, who simply see us as stereotypes in terms of age and beauty."

"I just feel very, very fortunate to have found her at this stage in my life. I saved the best till last.”
