July 2nd, 2014

Larry Flynt has made a career (and a lot of money) out of defending the First Amendment.

Flynt is the name and legend behind Larry Flynt Publications (LFP), the increasingly diverse business that got its start publishing Hustlermagazine. Geared toward working-class men, it is the raunchier, riskier Playboy. The magazine has pushed the boundaries of not only good taste but legality. The multi-million-dollar publishing house also produces several other magazines, includingBarely Legal, which is devoted exclusively to pictorials of women ages 18-23. LFP produces online gambling games and adult videos, as well.

Larry Flynt, with his raspy, bullfrog voice, has always had his work cut out for him. Villified in the media, he continually has to overcome the image of him as a lecherous smut peddler. more...

FROM NATIONAL JOURNAL: Why Every Member of Congress Gets a Monthly Porn Delivery

April 17th, 2014

Congressional offices have a porn problem, but it’s not exactly what you think.

Since 1983, Larry Flynt has sent the monthly magazine he founded, Hustler, to each and every member of Congress.

The dirty mag comes in a plain manila envelope, fairly undetectable to the poor intern or staffer tasked with opening the mail. And every month, there it is: Hustler, featuring dozens of naked or scantly dressed women, vulgar comics, and articles, some satirical, on politics, society, and sex. more...

FROM MYFOXDETROIT.COM: Porn-Apocalypse: The business of porn is going out of business

March 27th, 2014

LOS ANGELES (WJBK) – Porn is everywhere, except in the porn capital, Los Angeles. Pornographers try to stay relevant at a time when the internet is giving it away for free.
The saturation of free porn on the internet means “The Valley” is losing its once very profitable industry. Throw the condom law into the mix and they’re really in trouble. Who wants to buy a DVD or order a movie on their cable system when they can call up porn on their computer free of charge? more...

FROM THE OXFORD STUDENT: Interview: Larry Flynt, porn mogul, on the stigma around sex, that assassination attempt, and born-again Christianity

March 6th, 2014

Awaiting the arrival of the porn world’s top dog, a mid-afternoon G&T in the Union bar felt like a good move. The powerhouse behind America’s unsurpassably explicit mag Hustler, countless porn films, and Hustler Casino, Larry Flynt has topped the porn hierarchy since the 70s. Dutch courage seemed wise. Hence my later surprise to find myself back in the bar with the man himself jovially suggesting I give him a call if ever I happen to be in LA: “I know all the best restaurants.” Virgin Airlines on speed-dial, anyone?

Nor would we have expected this giant of the porn industry’s blank expression at a Kama Sutra-related question during his hour-long talk. The ensuing hilarity of the Union President describing the sex manual amidst the crowded cluster of attendees was worth the membership fee in itself. Banter aside, Flynt had a lot to say about free speech and liberties. more...
