'I had always enjoyed sex, sure,' he writes, 'but until [then] I hadn't realized how little I knew about it. So, of course I kept going back, a willing student... I soon realized I had a big problem: I loved f****** and I couldn't get enough of it.'
And he then realized that he 'had fallen madly in love with prostitutes'.
He moved into real estate and became a regular at the Moonlight Ranch brothel in Mound House Nevada. And when it went up for sale in the early 1990s, he bought it for $1million in Lyon County, one of the only counties that still allows legal prostitution.

But after realizing monogamous relationships weren't for him, he decided to date exclusively prostitutes and made them all aware of his lack of interest in seeing only one woman.
According to him, however, all relationships ended when the women found out he was having sex with other women.
Hof seems to have a realization when during a recent conversation he had with his best friend, porn star Ron Jeremy.
'It's not enough to be a good guy, and it's not enough to buy them s***, and it's not enough to teach them how to make serious money. You have to give them your heart and soul. If you hold back, even a little bit, they know it, and it kills them.'.
'For f***'s sake, Dennis,' Jeremy said. 'You sound like a girl!'

'I walked in and he said, "Hi, I'm Dennis Hof,"' she writes. 'And I remember thinking, "I know who you are." grey marl single button boyfriend jacket And then he said, "Take off your pants." That was it. "Take off your pants." I was absolutely terrified. Dennis was only the second man I'd ever been with.'
Parker calls Hof a 'soulless pimp' and explains the first time she arrived at the ranch, aged 22, after seeing Hof on the Tyra Banks show.
When the girls met her they told her, 'Daddy's gonna love you!' and asked if she would have sex with Hof.
'Well, single treffen rheinland pfalz you want Daddy to like you. You won't have a very good time if he doesn't, so if he wants you to, you definitely should,' the women told her.
Parker ended up in a relationship with Hof, but he tried changing the way she looked consistently.
She entered the ranch as a 5ft 4in, 107lb woman with A-cup breasts. But Hof would 'forever tell me to lose weight', and she hit '96 pounds with DDs', which 'led to a very serious - and nearly deadly - eating disorder. Everyone knows Dennis likes skinny, little-girl bodies'.
Hof eventually broke up with her - through another girl at the ranch - because she was 'too old for him'. She was 23, while Hof was 65.
Psychotherapist Dr. Sheenah Hankin writes a scathing review of Hof, claiming he 'encourages them to be jealous and yearn for his attention' while laughing at 'how they bicker, bitch and fight with each other over him'.
'Dennis uses the women he "loves" for his own desires, loyal companionship and sex,' writes Hankin. 'Like any pimp, he exploits them. This is sadistic behavior, and it is both unrecognized and denied.'
She calls him a narcissist, with 'no empathy', who's 'clueless about his lover’s hurts and fears or his part in creating them'.
