Many different people have been named as possible inspirations for fictional superspy James Bond. While Porfirio Rubirosa usually isn’t on that list, his life actually comes a lot closer to Bond’s than most of the people who are.: l. s. K  S3 ?% q- L, |8 a

Rubirosa was an international playboy who was romantically involved with some of the most beautiful women of his time. He also led a jet-setting lifestyle that would have even make Bond jealous. Oh, and through it all, there were rumors that he may have been working as an assassin.1 S) w+ W0 Y( K3 ?3 i, p

Rubirosa was born the youngest child of a wealthy couple in the Dominican Republic in 1909. Rubirosa’s father was closely tied to the government and was posted as the country’s ambassador to France. This meant that Rubirosa spent most of his childhood living in Paris before returning to the Dominican Republic at 17 to enlist in the military.

( {* T# }( [# U! k, G! OPorfirio Rubirosa seems to have possessed a natural charm that few people, man or woman, could resist. This worked to his favor when he happened to meet the country’s dictator, Rafael Trujillo. Their brief meeting had such an impact on Trujillo that he had Rubirosa summoned the next morning and immediately promoted him to lieutenant. His first assignment was to take over command of the dictator’s personal guard.

Porfirio Rubirosa似乎拥有一种自然的魅力,几乎没有男人或女人能抵抗。当他碰巧遇到该国独裁者拉斐尔·特鲁希略(Rafael Trujillo)时,这对他有利。他们的短暂会面对特鲁希略产生了深远的影响,以至于第二天早晨他召集了鲁比罗萨,并立即将他提升为中尉。他的第一个任务是接管独裁者的私人警卫。( C& b* ]; Z) _; d

As it turns out, a lot of natural charm and a famously large set of genitals can go a long way with some women. Rubirosa was famous for the number of women he was romantically involved with, though he himself refused to discuss the matter, as it was ungentlemanly.1 G1 I# S% O, y# L# I

By 1938, they were divorced, which was a significantly more dangerous position to be in when your father-in-law is the absolute dictator of your country. Somehow, despite this scandal, Rubirosa’s relationship with Trujillo survived.7 e" d6 X& U5 }4 S& ?

Rubirosa wasn’t single for long and eventually ran through a string of four more marriages, including one to Danielle Darrieux, France’s most popular actress at the time. Two of the other marriages were to Doris Duke and Barbara Hutton, heiresses who were some of the richest women in the world. Through it all, he kept up his extra-marital affairs with a number of the most prominent women of his time. The list allegedly includes Zsa Zsa Gabor, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Joan Crawford, and Judy Garland.

5 Q- ]1 e# m# k$ D& U3 ]Regardless, the money from his marriages meant that Rubirosa was free to pursue his other interests, which certainly weren’t cheap. Rubrirosa’s greatest passion was probably polo, which he excelled at. But, he found time in his busy schedule for everything from piloting B-52 bombers to treasure hunting in the Carribean. In the time that he had left between the treasure hunting and the affairs with movie stars, he raced cars semi-professionally." \8 |- S! F3 x) h5 S) R

Porfirio Rubirosa’s reputation preceded him just about everywhere he went. But sometimes, his more public scandals led Trujillo to recall him to the Dominican Republic or reassign him to other countries. But while other people who displeased Trujillo tended to disappear, Rubirosa somehow managed to remain close to the dictator through every public embarrassment.+ v' F6 j' y6 K8 j

" }0 c2 y3 A+ J8 y3 O0 F& E5 H: S( j8 F4 o9 h4 Z+ ]
Maybe that’s because Trujillo recognized that Rubirosa was actually a pretty valuable asset to his regime. As he once said, Rubirosa was a great diplomat, “because women like him and because he is a liar.” Trujillo understood that the press Rubirosa got was valuable and used his own money to fund Rubirosa’s lifestyle for years. His only request was that whenever Rubirosa threw a party, he would display the Dominican flag.

Trujillo’s son Ramfis was chosen to replace his father. Rubirosa supported Ramfis and even tried to persuade President Kennedy to do the same. He declined, and by the end of the year, Ramfis was forced to flee the country.# o! S! R7 i. p0 L

Rubirosa, without the Trujillo family’s support, was soon dismissed from his post as a diplomat. Without the blank checks Trujillo used to write him, he was now constantly short of money.

An increasingly depressed Rubirosa returned to Paris and tried to figure out what was to come next. His drinking, which had always been an almost-nightly ritual, became more intense. In 1965, he was returning from an all-night party in Paris when he plowed the expensive Ferrari he was driving into a tree. Rubirosa died as a result, at just 56.: y+ H; f0 e! F  z9 h

* C* Y4 X1 b" G/ X  fWhile it might be tempting to see Rubirosa’s life as something to envy, there was always a dark side to it. He was frequently physically abusive towards his wives and partners. He even hit his first wife, the daughter of a brutal dictator, which shows not only a lack of respect for women but also a lack of a basic instinct for self-preservation.9 r' @. @2 s" L7 A- }- m' u

One gets the sense that Porfirio Rubirosa had a somewhat pathological need to live on the edge for as long as he could. As he once wrote, “I would rather risk everything than be bored.” And in the end, not even he could keep that lifestyle up forever.9 s  [2 o# `) C* E  Z

Porfirio Rubirosa的名声几乎遍及他所到之处。但有时,他的公开丑闻导致特鲁希略将他召回多米尼加共和国,或将他调任其他国家。但是,当其他使特鲁希略不悦的人倾向于失踪时,鲁比罗萨在某种程度上通过每次公开的尴尬设法设法与独裁者保持亲密关系。

也许是因为特鲁希略(Trujillo)意识到鲁比罗萨(Rubrosa)实际上是他的政权非常宝贵的财富。正如他曾经说过的那样,鲁比罗莎是一位伟大的外交官,“因为女人喜欢他,而且因为他是个骗子。”特鲁希略深知鲁比罗莎的报业很有价值,并用自己的钱来资助鲁比罗莎多年的生活。他唯一的要求是,每当鲁比鲁萨(Rubrosa)举行聚会时,他都要展示多米尼加国旗。$ y9 H* _- S! @; D

Six Life Lessons from Porfirio Rubirosa, the greatest playboy of the twentieth century$ Q$ K% I5 b% g
0 t( Y4 j) ~$ p
What is there left to say of Porfirio Rubirosa? His job titles alone cast a sense of the man – international diplomat-sans-pareil, professional polo player, soldier, political advisor and racing driver – but even they leave something on the table. Gerard Bonnet, an old polo-playing friend from Paris, gets closer to the truth:  “Rubi was the ultimate man’s man. Everyone wanted his style of macho. All the men I know loved Rubi. The ones who didn’t were jealous of him.”
( T1 R8 M  c5 w" N4 c
+ h# _: e) f1 W4 R; dIt’s not hard to see why. Rubirosa’s life was a smorgasbord of anecdotes, capers and aphorisms; a cascade of models, movie stars, dictators and sporting rivals. And though the playboy’s worldview now looks drastically outdated (all the more reason to resurrect it, perhaps), it still represents an unbeatable field-guide to living well. Here are six lessons from the life of Porfirio Rubirosa – take them with a pinch of salt, wash them down with a swig of Bollinger, and let someone else’s wife take care of the bill.

Porfirio Rubirosa还有什么要说的?仅他的职务名称就使人感动-国际外交官,职业马球运动员,士兵,政治顾问和赛车手-但即使他们不在桌上。来自巴黎的老马球演奏友杰拉德·邦内特(Gerard Bonnet)更加接近事实:“鲁比是终极男人。每个人都想要他的男子气概。我认识的所有男人都爱Rubi。那些没有嫉妒他的人。”
" \: b# T+ S" a- s

Be Attentive
- f, F8 y9 w5 h6 GRubi’s well attested charm was largely derived, it seems, from a combination of utter confidence and a sort of impish, latin playfulness. But a great portion of it came from his manful attentiveness to his targets. A Vanity Fair profile recalls how “When he was around, an unlit cigarette never touched a woman’s lips.”

He made each woman feel that she was the most important thing in the world. There are a lot of men who are excellent in bed, but you can’t go out to dinner with them.”1 ?  H2 M8 ?; E" [8 N# m2 C1 ]

看起来,鲁比的久经考验的魅力很大程度上源于完全的自信和某种卑鄙的拉丁嬉戏的结合。但是其中很大一部分来自他对目标的精打细算。 Vanity Fair的个人资料让人想起“当他在身边时,一支未点燃的香烟从未碰过女人的嘴唇。”0 o. X& P9 {2 e1 M  ^* g$ T: x
  z0 q! N  `, g0 W0 A
与此同时,米尔德瑞德·里卡特(Mildred Ricart)来自他的家乡多米尼加共和国(Dominican Republic),是一位老朋友,他回想起他如何使每个人都变得重要。 “如果他正在与80岁或4岁的孩子聊天,那么世界上最美丽的女人可以走进去,而他不会看她。他让每个女人都觉得她是世界上最重要的东西。有很多男人卧床不起,但是你不能和他们出去吃饭。”

Be ready
" b: M9 [6 w% D5 VOne of Rubi’s more dubious nicknames was “Toujours Pret”,  or “always ready”. It derived, supposedly, from his constant state of sexual arousal.  (In his novel Answered Prayers, Truman Capote described Rubi’s endowment thus: “An eleven-inch café-au-lait sinker as thick as a man’s wrist”.)
( q, f6 J! G/ ~% _- v( s% f- s8 l* g- J- f3 _, l/ F4 u6 u1 H
But it also referred to his unfailing willingness to say “yes”, and to tackle whatever life happened to throw at him. This readiness saw him taken up, in just his early twenties, as the presidential guard of the newly installed Dominican Dictator Rafael Trujillo. “He had me fitted for a uniform” Rubirosa remembers, “which I liked, because I knew that women would be attracted to the uniform.”

鲁比(Rubi)更可疑的昵称之一是“ Toujours Pret”,或“始终准备就绪”。据推测,这源于他对性唤起的持续状态。 (杜鲁门·卡波特(Truman Capote)在他的小说《回答的祈祷》中这样描述了鲁比的end赋:“一个11英寸厚的咖啡壶坠子,就像男人的手腕一样厚”。)
. U+ P, s4 R0 n. y2 {4 B; o- o; Q$ R6 x
但是,这也提到了他坚定不移的愿意说“是”,以及解决发生在他身上的一切生活的意愿。这种准备使他在二十多岁就开始担任新成立的多米尼加独裁者拉斐尔·特鲁希略(Rafael Trujillo)的总统护卫。鲁比罗萨回忆说:“他让我穿上制服,我喜欢,因为我知道女人会被制服吸引。”
