Hugh Hefner gave out his "number" in an intimate profile with Esquire magazine writer Chris Jones in the April issue. The Playboy founder was asked how many women he had slept with during his long career at the helm of the gentleman's magazine, to which he responded:

"How could I possibly know? Over a thousand, I'm sure. There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn't married. You have to keep your hand in."

Hefner, 86, was married three times prior to his current wife, model Crystal Harris, whom he wed in January. The 26-year-old centerfold made headlines after she notoriously called off their engagement in June 2011. However, the couple patched things up in time for a New Years Eve wedding at the Playboy mansion.

During the interview, Jones experienced first hand what it's like to dine at home with Hefner. In the article, Jones writes that Hefner orders "from the kitchen by number," also noting: "There are very few things he will eat, most of them the same meals his mother made for him when he was a boy."

What did he order? A number 6, of course.

"A BLT," he says. "With chips, milk, applesauce. And a blond."
