Hugh Hefner's Youngest Son And Playboy Heir Apparent Joins "Nude Vs. Naked" Debate

Cooper Hefner, the 21-year-old (and youngest) son of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, made some bold claims regarding the artistic merits of his father's adult magazine in a recent interview with the Independent, and seems poised to take over the family business, which he's looking to re-brand as an art magazine. Sort of. "If somebody is trying to argue the point that Playboy is pornography, then you probably shouldn't be showering or going to a museum where there's nude art," the youngest Hefner told the U.K. newspaper. "That's very hypocritical."

While Hefner's apparent analogy between showering and looking at pornography is confusing -- and kind of flattering? -- the point he's driving at is the age-old "nude v. naked" debate, whereby the former is considered art and the latter pornography.
