Former Playboy bunny Holly Madison has a safer sex tip: don’t use baby oil as a lube.
The 44-year-old and Bridget Marquardt, 48 – who are opening up about their experiences as two of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s three main girlfriends in the early 2000s – claimed in Monday’s episode that the velvet robe-wearing mogul was accurate liked that.
“Hef would use baby oil as a lube,” Madison revealed. “I don’t recommend that. It’s an infection waiting to happen. It’s disgusting. I don’t know what his problem was with that.”
“It got to the point where I was constantly irritated by that baby oil because it throws off your pH, so you’re going to like it all the time [having] Fungal infections,” she continued, with Marquardt confirming the memory.
“I remember talking to the gynecologist about it and then saying to Hef, ‘You need to stop using baby oil. I can’t use it’ and even told him that the gynecologist agreed with me and he would argue with me and say, ‘Well, people use baby oil on babies.’”
Madison added, “And I’m like, ‘Yeah, on her skin. Not internal. You shouldn’t put it there.’”
“Then it got to the point where I refused to use it, but then other people would tell me that – in the bedroom – he would put it on his hand and then take it out on me when I had my back to him and i did it I don’t know that he did it,” she explained.
“This is so lazy and so non-consensual and so gross,” she continued. “I had forgotten that for a long time, but for some reason I was reminded of it and it made me angry again.”
A scientific study backed Madison’s claims about using baby oil during sex leading to a higher chance of yeast infections. Another study found that baby oil — and all other oils — easily break down condoms in just 60 seconds.
The baby oil claims add to an ever-growing list of revelations from the podcast – including Madison and Marquardt, who say Hefner had a “black book” he’s reportedly using to keep tabs on many of his pale-haired roommates.
“The black book recorded a few different things,” Marquardt said. “It tracked when someone picked up their allowance. He would tick it off so you wouldn’t have to ask for it twice.
“It also recorded who slept with them and when,” she added.
Madison also revealed that most of the girls at the villa felt like having sex with Hugh Hefner was a “chore” that they were trying to get off “as soon as possible.”
