Hugh Hefner has never had sex with a woman older than 49.

The 85-year-old Playboy founder is known for always dating younger ladies, and claims he has never even had a sexual encounter with anyone over 50.

He said: "The oldest I've been out with? In terms of intimacy, she was in her forties, but in terms of a relationship - somewhere in her thirties."

Hugh is currently dating both 24-year-old Anna Sophia Berglund and Shera Bechard, 28, and Hugh was attracted to them both because they are "very classy".

He added to Britain's OK! magazine: "They're both very special, very classy, very sweet and are very funny - it's the same with anything that sets one person apart from another, what captures the heart is magic. That's the magic of love."

Both Anna and Shera also insist the gap in age between them and Hugh causes no problems.

Anna said: "I think that everything happens for a reason and things have just worked out this way."

Shera added: "I've always dated older men anyway, there is something charming about them. I don't mind how old someone is, it's about the personality."
