A former Playboy bunny revealed she attempted to ‘block’ out the first ever orgy she took part in, after initially believing she’d only be watching and not joining in.

Earlier this year, numerous former Playboy bunnies made shocking revelations about their time in the infamous mansion for the 10-part A&E docu-series Secrets of Playboy. You can see a trailer from the show here:

Among them was Bridget Marquardt, who was 28 when she moved into the Playboy Mansion, and was considered to be one of Hugh Hefner's ‘main’ girlfriends.

Marquardt further elaborated on the claims she made in the series while appearing on Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast in August, alongside fellow ex-Playboy bunny Holly Madison.

Opening up about the pressure she felt to get involved in the first orgy she saw at the mansion, Marquardt told the podcast: “I was still just going to watch and then [one of the other Playmates] was like, ‘Aren’t you going to go?’ It was like, ‘You need to go.’ And I was like, ‘I would rather not.’ And she’s like, ‘Well, then you probably won’t be invited back’.

“So then I was like, ‘OK.’ And I’d seen what everybody else was doing, so I knew that this was, like, a 10-second thing. I mean, definitely no more than a minute.”

She went on to say that although she tried to ‘block’ the experience from her mind she can still remember ‘trying to get it done as quickly as possible’ as she felt that was the ‘cleanest’ way to get involved.

“You were hoping everyone’s in the same situation, and there is a doctor on staff. You’re hoping everybody is being checked out, and everybody is being - I say this in quotes - ‘monogamous’ to that relationship, but you don’t know,” she explained.

“If there’s new girls coming up, which there often were, like, I just wanted to be first and be done. And I felt like that was the cleanest way.”

The 10-part docu-series made numerous explosive claims about Hefner, including attempting to ply the women with Quaalude, which he nicknamed ‘thigh openers’.

Madison recalled her first time going out with Hefner when he presented her with a Quaalude.

And while Madison turned down the illegal substance, many Playmate hopefuls accepted.

In the documentary, she said: "They weren't commonly available then - I don't even know exactly how he was getting them.

"I know most girls my age were not doing them, and didn't know what they made you feel like. And I'm sure a lot of those girls didn't know what they were at all."
