Monday's episode of Secrets of Playboyfeatured many disturbing claims about Hugh Hefner and the depravity that went on at the Playboy Mansion. Hefner's ex-girlfriend, Sondra Theodore, emotionally opened up about her five-year relationship with the Playboyfounder, declaring him "a monster."

"The things he got turned on by — nothing was enough. Nothing," the former Playmate revealed.

Theodore, who dated Hefner from 1976 to 1981, said their relationship was "like a fairytale" at first. "We were so in love," she admitted. But her story is similar to those of Hefner's other girlfriends who claim they were groomed and isolated.

"He cut me off from the world," Theodore recalled.

The model's relationship with Hefner coincided with when he decided to date multiple women at the same time and live the life that Playboymagazine represented. Theodore had to recruit young women for group sex with Hefner.

"I was told it was a party, it was getting together to have some fun," she tearfully said. "That was my way of pretending I really wasn't doing it."

Theodore, who previously claimed she was Hefner's "drug mule," admitted to doing cocaine in order to go along with what her boyfriend wanted her to do.

Perhaps one of the most startling moments of the night came when Theodore alleged she walked into a room only to find Hefner fondling their dog.

"He said, 'Dogs have needs,'" she recalled. "I never left him alone with a dog again... I could not believe what I was seeing."

Former "bunny mother" P.J. Masten shared a horrific story allegedly involving porn star Linda Lovelace. Masten said the Deep Throatstar "was drunk and drugged" one night at the Playboy Mansion and performed a sexual act with a German Shepard dog. Theodore corroborated the disturbing tale claiming Hefner admitted it happened, telling her, "We all watched."
