craigdamage: Anyone remember OMNI?

...also, remember Guccione and Swaggart debate on live TV? Great stuff.


OMNI is online now.

Dear Penthouse forum:
I never thought that the admins would ignore the better greenlit for this one...

I blame Penthouse, in large part, for warping my young mind and setting my sexual expectaions outside of the parameters my parents and culteral leaders envisioned.

So thanks, I really did appreciate the suggestions.

strangeguitar: 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?

Dear Penthouse,

Q: When looking at a woman's rear end, what's is that gap area at the top of a woman's thighs and at her buttocks called?

A: Nirvana

/might have been Playboy Advisor.  Good answer none-the-less.

Bob Guccione was a tool with more luck/balls than brains.   When the interawebz took off, he refused to put Penthouse content on the net...at first.  Larry Flynt, on the other hand,  immediately seized the new internet opportunity by the short and curlies.     Today Penthouse is done, and Larry Flynt Publications is making more money than ever.   Similar pattern happened in the music biz. At first they ignored the net, then they went after 16 year kids downloading songs, today they are mostly irreverent.

The bigger the write off, the bigger the savings.  That is all paper losses to protect real money.

I first encountered Penthouse when I was about 10 (don't ask -- really) and emphatically pre-pubescent. The only thing that made the least bit of sense to me was Wicked Wanda. My expectations of, and relationship with, comic strips has been distinctly abnormal ever since.

stuhayes2010: 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.


That's about how old I was when I found someones stash of mags out in the woods. Peeled open the rain wet mag on top (Playboy) and saw Debra Jo Fondren.

To this day, long blonde hair and the smell of mildewed paper give me a woody

Great....now my only source for porn will be Playboy magazine. Don't get me wrong. Playboy is ok, but it was nice having some variety to choose from :(

Gulper Eel: 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.

/csb


Dad was a builder who built banks, and built all the banks for one of Guccione's bankers. The banker claimed that whenever he flew up for a meeting, he'd be met at the airport by a limo full of women who molested him all the way to the meeting.

I suppose that's one way of ensuring your business partners will be compliant with your wishes

Penthouse often had much better photo layouts than Playboy. With Playboy it was an awkward glamour pose, fake tits, ridiculous makeup, and a bright light pointing at the chest, and that got boring. Penthouse mixed it up. They even had lots of models who (gasp!) didn't have fake tits.

Billy Bathsalt: 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

Drool story, bra


I was a Boy Scout in that era, too (well, probably a few years before that), and my group had the greatest scout leader in the area (and the only one, not coincidently, who wasn't a Mormon).  Not only did he allow us to do fun and dangerous things like blast stuff with his .44 magnum when we went on campouts in the desert, but whenever we had Scout meetings at the house, the actual meetings would last about about 15 minutes and then he would let us spend the next hour or so thumbing through his huge stack of Playboys and Penthouses.

The Penthouses were the ones that were most in demand, of course.  In the years that Playboy would only show boobs and no pubes, Penthouse would show pubes.  When Playboy finally started showing pubes, Penthouse started showing girls with their legs spread.  And the girls in Penthouse seemed not only hot but realistic-looking, while even then the Playboy girls looked airbrushed beyond belief.  Penthouse always seemed on the cutting edge of softcore porn in those days, and as 12-year-old soft porn connaisseurs, we definitely appreciated it.

Brings back fond memories of 5th grade when my best friend found a stash with a couple of penthouse magazines. Those were the days.

I can hardly search for anything online now without stumbling across porn. I really have no idea who pays for it anymore. The only porn I've ever bought are bizarre DVDs as gag gifts for friends.

I think this will be a repeat headline for Playboy after Heff goes to the great Grotto in the sky (after vulture capitalist pick clean the remains).

FTA: "Through a network of thousands of websites, FriendFinder provides live video, chat rooms, and photo and video sharing. It also sought to tap the powers of social networking with websites such as adultfriendfinder.com, which promoted casual sex, and bigchurch.com, which aimed for spiritual connections."

Did I read this correctly? The same company that owns Penthouse owns a religious dating website?

MelGoesOnTour: 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.

Cue the " centerfold " music

This became know as the 'Pubic Wars'.

/Who won? We did of course.
// In today's world, this is no longer the case. The Playboy centerfolds are almost all the same - no pubes, and some don't even have lower lady parts (over airbrushing?)
