Hugh Hefner admits to the New York Times magazine that he didn’t lose his virginity until he was 22 years old.

The Playboy founder, 84, was disturbed after his next two wives cheated on him, and he felt older and "not well" while wed to Kimberly Conrad.

"During the marriage I was faithful," he said, "and she was not."

The result was "overcompensation," as he began dating multiple women, including twins named Sandy and Mandy.

"You can't make this stuff up," he said, adding that he was living with seven women in the '80s, and trying to enforce a 9 p.m. curfew to keep them from dating anyone else.

But now he says he's ready to settle down with his fiancee Crystal Harris, 24.

"This is it," he said. "This is a very, very special one. I expect to spend the rest of my life with her."
