Wellington, Jun 26 : It seems that exerting youthful energy during bedroom antics is starting to take its toll on Hugh Hefner.
The Playboy boss has revealed that he suffers from back pain as he has been spending too much time in bed "rustling around with friends".
The 82-year-old, who is currently living with three girlfriends at the infamous Playboy mansion in Los Angeles, is very well known for his womanising ways.
But he has now confessed that his bedroom activities have caused him health problems.
"I have some aches and pains and I have had lower back problems since the 80s. Too much time in bed rustling around with friends!" the NZPA quoted him, as telling FoxNews.com.
He further revealed that he had gone against his family's wishes in starting his Playboy empire, but he decided to go ahead as he was determined to fulfil his own dream.
"I've pursued my own personal dreams from the very beginning. I'm a romantic and always have been that way. I dreamed impossible dreams when I was a kid," he said.
"I was raised in a very typical Midwestern Methodist home with a lot of repression. There weren't a lot of hugs and kisses in my home, and I charted my own course," he added.
