Hugh Hefner's wife Crystal Harris says sex was not an important aspect of their marriage
Hugh Hefner and former Playboy model Crystal Harris tied the knot in 2012 and had a 80-year age difference
Crystal Harris is choosing to open up on her marriage to Hugh Hefner as she got candid about what her life with her late husband was like. Surprisingly, she revealed that the couple's sex life was not the most important part of their relationship.
As reported by Access Live, Crystal was asked about her sex life with Hugh and the frequency of it. She responded saying, "You know, (in) that point in time in his life, that wasn't, you know, all that important to him," before adding that the couple's idea of fun was "movie night and backgammon." Given Hugh Hefner's death in 2017, Crystal was also asked whether she would be ready to date again. "I don't know. Yeah, eventually. I'm not sure, I don't really have a type," she shared.
It took Crystal around 14 months after losing her husband to be able to speak about and discuss her relationship with Hugh. "I'm doing okay. The first three months were really, really hard from then I just thought, 'I need to get out of here.' So I started traveling and I've kind of been all around the world since. I'm trying to find myself, because I was such a part of Hef's world for ten years, [and] at the mansion most of the time," she shared.
Hefner and Crystal tied the knot on New Year's Eve in the year 2012 and Crystal also recalled meeting Hefner for the first time. "In 2008, I was in college and I would do modeling on the side, and my friend suggested that I send a picture to maybe go to a party at the Playboy Mansion," she shared. "You have to submit yourself and get approved. I didn't think I would get approved."
She also recalled being at the mansion for a party once and she and her friend went over to Hefner's private cabana. "He invited me in and we started talking, he asked me what I did and I said I was a psychology major at San Diego State, and he said he was a psychology major at the University of Illinois. We just got to talking, he invited me to stay for the weekend, and after the weekend I went back to San Diego and I was like, 'What just happened?'"
Speaking of their marriage, she shared that their families "were all cool" about it even though they had a massive 60-year age gap. She added, "I'm not sure, to be honest, but I think we just had a really good time together. I kind of helped him with the settling down a little bit. It worked. He was much older, but he was just a little boy at heart. The rest is history!"
