I never thought this could happen to me.  I finally got the Boobies on Fark.
 
2013-09-17 07:55:44 AM  
Great, now where am I going to read steamy sex stories that are almost certainly fake?
Oh wait -- the internet

"As I looked over at the opposing counsel, I couldn't help but notice the shapely curve of her breast beneath her blouse. The judge had noticed too, it seemed, as I was suddenly aware that I hadn't seen his right hand in quite some time. 'Is this really going to happen?' I somehow found myself saying aloud..."

Some lucky banrupcy court is going to get to start a factual letter that begins with "Dear Penthouse" I really hope they make good use of it.

Dear Penthouse-

I was sitting at my desk at work, running a multi-zillion-dollar website, pounding down a Heineken and washing my pet squirrel....

10 million in assets to 1/2 - 1 billion in liabilities? Who keeps funding that operation?

Dear Penthouse,
We have not received your payments in over six months. Please call for payment options before October 12 to avoid legal action.

Dear Penthouse,

  I never thought something like this could happen to a regular guy like me, BUT...

  I was shivering in my cardboard box under the overpass, hiding from creditors and begging for nickels, when a bus full of cheerleaders collided with a pudding tanker....

I guess it's not easy to sell pictures of naked women when the internet's giving it away.

RedHat has a viable business model even though Linux is free on the internet. Maybe Penthouse should start selling value-added/support services.

Maybe because Penthouse didn't get into the hardcore porn business quickly enough.

Porn tech support?  That would be a terrible job.  :o

I used to help run a small bookstore through high school and college. I used to see every single Penthouse from 1985 until 1994. A few years later (after not looking at one for some time), I opened one up and saw just pics of chicks pissing. What the fark was that all about?

Oh great. Looks like my last source of Nazi lesbian porn is gone. Well, the neighbors are still doing it but they've gotten old. No longer do they struck purposefully about the house in their thigh high leather boots, black silk corsets and riding crops. Now, they sit at the breakfast table is wool overcoats bedecked with ribbons and awards they gave each other in a sparklier, halcyon life. I hear one say to the other "You vill pass me the scccredded veats, frau. I must haff dem, you withered old sex toy!" And the other lesbian replies "take them, you dried up, purse like, vaj jay. Take them like you did Stalingrad! Oh vait!"

I dated a gal who was in Penthouse twice (first time in the magazine; later on the cover of Penthouse Forum). She never told me about it but I managed to find out years later via Google. She was really smart and sharp but ultimately not quite right in the head. She passed away about a year or two ago.

Presumably the assets have been written down, that is, once upon a time the magazine and adultfriendfinder were believed to be worth a lot more money than they are believed to be worth now.

Whoever it was is going to be pissed. That is a nasty loss for boobies.

Dated a Penthouse underwear model. Lasted a few years til she went away to law school.
Has her own practice now.
Still smoking hot, but she's in her early 40s now.

Kids these days just won't know the joy of finding a playboy or penthouse when you're 13.  You got to see boobies and the occasional vagina.  Was so much better than the lingerie section of the Sears catelog.
 
2013-09-17 08:51:43 AM  
comon' guys, let's get it up for Penthouse!!     Hustler was over the top.  Penthouse had some taste.
 
2013-09-17 09:01:06 AM  
It was in Penthouse that I found out that lesbian pron could be very stimulating. Very stimulating, indeed!  Penthouse was, also, the first mainstream pron magazine, where women showed their vags, proudly for all to see.  Playboy wasn't doing that, at the time.

"Look, I know the internet is cutting into our market share a little but George, we're moving this magazime into the future. We're going to put astronaut helmets on biatches or dress them up like aliens for our exclusive sci-fi month. We're also transitioning to easy-wipe wax paper so that pages no longer stick together. Imagine being able to spank one out to Pamela Anderson for the rest of your life because the page looks just like when you bought it, even after being spunked on hundreds of times!"

"Umm. I can just Google up 'Pamela Anderson - before the surgery' if i want to do that. And I can watch slow motion Baywatch videos. Hell, at this point I can probably tweet her and get her to come over for a bottle of scotch and an eightball. But, wax paper...fark it, I'm in!"

Back when Nixon was getting on the final helicopter, we used to be Boy Scouts and recycled newspapers- which were like news websites on paper.  Sometimes we'd get a paper bag full of Playboys and Penthouses.  That was great

JasonOfOrillia: Last week I watched a documentary on the founder of Penthouse. It was interesting.


The old Guccione estate is about 15 miles down the Hudson from me. Once upon a time, from certain angles on the river, if you sailed just north of the old Mills mansion in Staatsburg and looked to your east, the view on the lawn could be astounding.

I work for a printing company and we actually print porn , lord knows whos buying the mags because they are limited run and all glossy productions with lots of finishing.

The Fark filter hopes that will make up for not getting them anymore via Penthouse.

And thanks to his hidden penis pump, it did!

We did Adopt-A-Highway when I was in Scouts. We split into two groups to cover it all, and the other group found a Penthouse in the bushes. Thrill of their lives. Of course, it was confiscated by the adult leaders right away.

Naturally, by the time they got back to the campsite, the story had become that they found 4 copies of Penthouse, 3 Playboys, and 2 Hustlers.
