How Secret Tunnels Came to Be Discovered Under the Playboy Mansion

Sometimes a salacious celebrity story is so incredible, it’s hard to believe it could be true. And yet sometimes that incredible story turns out to be true anyway. Such is the case with the hidden tunnels recently discovered underneath the Playboy Mansion.

When looking through some old 1970s Polaroids, the Playboy.com staff came across some pictures of what appeared to be a large excavation project. When they asked the mansion’s new general manager what the project was, he responded perplexingly “that’s probably when they built the tunnels in the 70s.”

The staff was allowed to explore an unfinished basement area, full of otherwise forgotten blueprints and drawings.

Among those were these blueprints for a series of tunnels leading from the mansion to the houses of (presumably, based on first initials) Jack Nicholson, Kirk Douglas, James Caan, and Warren Beatty. All the actors lived nearby the mansion in the 1970s and early 80s, and all had strong reputations for their… proclivities.

Rumor has it the tunnels were closed up in the late 1980s, around the time Hugh Hefner married Playmate Kimberley Conrad. Playboy is currently looking for more information regarding this very sexy bit of their history.
