The former valet of Hugh Hefner has revealed the wild nights the Playboy spent bringing prostitutes to the mansion.

In an interview with the New York Post, Stefan Tetenbaum has revealed what he claims to have seen while he was employed as Hefner's valet between 1978-79.

Now aged 68, and working as a sculptor in California, Tetenbaum once had the most intimate access to the Playboy editor-in-chief.

In addition to his regular duties as a valet, Tetenbaum would prepare Hefner's 'sick menu'.

Rather than being anything sexual, this was the food Hefner wanted when he was feeling poorly; it included Pepsi, Campbell's chicken noodle soup, and M&Ms.

According Tetenbaum, Hefner, then aged 52, would have 'Pig nights', where he could hire prostitutes to come to his mansion 'for his friends'.

At other times, according to Tetenbaum, Hefner would hire male porn stars such as John Holmes, to have sex with the prostitutes while Hefner watched, smoking a joint and eating red liquorice.

Hefner allegedly had video cameras in some of the bedrooms, in order to threaten any guest who might try to pen a memoir about their time in the mansion.

In Tetenbaum's opinion, Hefner was not a nice employer.

Hef wasn’t a kind man. If he tasted the Pepsi and it wasn’t cold enough, he would throw it away and call me to replace it. I don’t know if he ever even knew my name. He would just call me 'valet.'

He also claimed Hefner was 'very brutal' to his girlfriends.

He didn’t care. They were disposable.

Upon hearing that his former boss had died, Tetenbaum said he 'didn't feel anything'.

He started out as an innovator and was a very liberal guy. He was pro abortion, gay rights, marijuana. He was very ahead of his time and then when he moved from Chicago to Holmby Hills, he became just another dirty old rich man.
