Ex-Playmate shares Mansion’s Halloween party secrets – body paint and being ‘plucked’
Jenna Bentley, from Montana, who was a Playboy Bunny for several years, says her first Playboy Mansion Halloween party helped her understand her own sexuality for the first time
A former Playmate has revealed what went on at Hugh Hefner’s infamous Playboy Mansion Halloween parties – including latex and a lot of sex.
Jenna Bentley, from Montana in the US, went to her first Halloween bash shortly before moving into the Playboy Mansion.
When Hef was alive, the parties were known as some of the wildest and most lavish events to be held at the Mansion.
Jenna was invited to attend with a guy she was dating and met Hugh Hefner himself. She claims she was asked to have her naked body painted as a butterfly before joining the festivities.
“I was blown away by everything, every detail was perfect and no expense was spared,” she said.
“I met Hef before the party began and he asked if I’d like to get involved by being body painted.
“I obviously said yes, it felt surreal.”
Jenna, who was 18 at the time, spent four hours having a latex suit applied to prepare for the event.
She said: “Everyone was so professional but I really had to stand there completely naked while the colour was painted on.
“I was completely plucked bare, there wasn’t a hair on my body and the costume was so intricate and detailed with tiny jewels everywhere.
“I was so worried about getting sweaty and the paint coming off or spilling something down it but it was perfect.”
Although the guests weren’t invited into the mansion, Jenna said a huge marquee was set up in the grounds.
“It was like something out of Vegas, it had a massive production value,” she recalled.
Once painted, Jenna mingled with the famous guests and witnessed plenty of X-rated shenanigans.
She said: “People were having sex everywhere. In the grottos, in the pool, I even saw one couple doing it in the pumpkin patch.
“I couldn’t reveal any names of who was getting down and dirty. You can assume there were famous musicians, politicians, and celebrities there.
“It was so much fun. If only the walls could talk.”
The Playboy Mansion Halloween parties started off as private bashes for Hef and his friends. But over the years, they grew into raunchy celebrations with exclusive guest lists.
Jenna, who now rakes in the cash from her OnlyFans page, spent her first party chatting to the Playboy Bunnies – and she decided a change of career was in order.
She said: “The other girls were so lovely and I had so much fun.”
The model revealed the party helped her to realise she was attracted to women as well as men.
It was also particularly memorable for Jenna as it led to a realisation about her own sexuality.
“I’d always thought I was straight until that night,” she said.
“I’d had feelings of attraction to women from a young age but I mistook it as thinking they were pretty and that I wanted to look like them.
“The older I got, the clearer it got in my mind – but I never told my mum or my family, because I was confused.
“The best analogy I can give to how I feel about my sexuality and being pansexual is: I like the wine but not the label.”
