Former Playboy Playmate Bridget Marquardt openly shared what went down during her first night at the Playboy Mansion over 17 years ago since "The Girls Next Door."

During the "Juicy Scoop" podcast hosted by comedian Heather McDonald on Tuesday, the 48-year-old reality star revealed her first experience with the late editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner. Marquardt said she was supposed to just watch but got persuaded by other girls who "put pressure on you."

"I was still just gonna watch, and then [one of the women] was like, 'Aren't you gonna go?' It's 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,'" Marquardt told McDonald in front of fellow Playmate Holly Madison, who also guested on the podcast.

She continued, "So then I was like, 'Okay.' 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."

The reality star then turned to Madison, asking if her assumption was correct, but the 42-year-old claimed that her "memory was cloudy" as she had "kinda blocked it [the memory]." However, she agreed that the experience was short.

Marquardt also shared that the other girls were "very encouraging," but Madison noted that she felt that everybody just wanted to get the whole process done "quickly as possible."

After the first night, "The House Bunny Star" made it her mission to go ahead of the other women Hefner was having sex with to avoid contracting any sexual infection or disease for it was a rule that they would not wear any protection while in action.

"If there [are] 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 to be in and out of it," she explained.

Before the revelation, Marquardt got asked by the 52-year-old host how she ended up being one of Hefner's so-called girlfriends. She shared that she initially wanted to just become a Playmate and not participate in any sexual activities.

"I was like, oh no, I've heard stories about what went on. I just really want to be a Playmate, that's why I'm here," she said.

Marquardt continued, "He was very gracious and nice about it, everything was fine." But the reality star started to rethink her decision when "nothing had moved" in her life in Los Angeles. Eventually, she accepted Hefner's offer.

Marquardt ended up being part of the group of women, including Madison, who would follow the late Playboy editor to his bedroom.

"I was thinking I could get out of this [for] a little while. The first night I was like, 'I'm not ready yet, I'm not going to do anything I don't want to do,'" she shared, "It's not like I never would have done that with him, but I wasn't ready [at] the moment."

"The Girls Next Door" premiered in 2005. Marquardt and Madison became part of the main trio of the show, alongside former TV personality Kendra Wilkinson, 37, who was absent during the podcast. They eventually went on different career paths and starred in solo shows, including "Kendra on Top" in 2012 and "Holly's World" in 2009.
