FROM U.S. NEWS- Larry Flynt:Washington Doesn’t Get Sex

August 27th, 2014


Hustler Magazine owner Larry Flynt praised President Barack Obama’s handling of LGBT rights and condemned Congress’ handling of women’s reproductive rights.

FROM OKLAHOMA GAZETTE: American Hustler

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.

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.
