Larry Flynt Publications - Other Magazines

Other Magazines

After 1976, Larry Flynt Publications expanded to include many pornographic magazines as well as mainstream titles under its umbrella. Other pornographic magazines included:

  • Hustler's Taboo, which specializes in fetishistic material, such as the depiction of sexual bondage and urolagnia.
  • Barely Legal, a primarily softcore magazine focusing on models between 18 and 23
  • Asian Fever, focusing on Asian models
  • Hustler XXX, a more generic hardcore offering
  • Hustler's Leg World
  • Hustler's Chic Magazine, started in 1976 and aimed at a more upscale clientele than Hustler.
  • Hustler's Busty Beauties is a softcore magazine which specializes in photographs of women with extremely large breasts.

When the market for men's magazines softened in the late 1990s, LFP expanded into production of adult videos through its Hustler Video subsidiary, and moved further into the mainstream publishing market. To accommodate this expansion, the company moved its headquarters to Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California, where it remains to this day. It launched a series of special-interest magazines, such as Camera & Darkroom Photography, PC Laptop Computers and Maternity Fashion & Beauty.

RIP Magazine was a music magazine covering heavy metal. It was the first non-pornographic publication produced by LFP, and was edited by Lonn Friend, who had previously edited Hustler and Chic.

It published 14 bi-monthly issues of TurboPlay Magazine (June/July 1990 – August/September 1992) dedicated to covering TurboGrafx-16 and TG-CD hardware and software. It was a spin-off publication of Video Games & Computer Entertainment (VG&CE), a popular multi-platform gaming magazine of the late 1980s / early 1990s. Every issue of TurboPlay was 32 pages in length and a yearly subscription cost $9.95. L.F.P. published three bi-monthly issues of DUOWORLD magazine (July/August 1993 – November/December 1993) before it was canceled. DuoWorld was very similar in format to TurboPlay, but with a focus on the newly released TurboDuo console (i.e. TurboMail and TurboNews became DuoMail and DuoNews, respectively).

Tips & Tricks (now Tips & Tricks Codebook) is a video game magazine published by LFP. For most of its existence, the publication was devoted almost exclusively to strategies and codes for popular video games. It began as a spin off from VideoGames magazine, which in itself morphed out of VideoGames & Computer Entertainment. VG&CE and VideoGames, like Tips & Tricks, were published by LFP following the purchase of A.N.A.L.O.G., ST-LOG and other computer magazines from publishers Michael DesChenes & Lee Pappas in the late 1980s.

As the 21st century approached, magazine sales further declined. Together, the company's 31 periodicals had a monthly circulation of between 2.5 and 3 million. This was a far cry from the 1970s, when Hustler alone sold that many copies each month. Because of this LFP focused on turning its magazine and video titles such as Hustler, Barely Legal, Busty Beauties, Beaver Hunt, and Asian Fever into profitable websites.

By 1998, estimates LFP was doing $135 million in annual sales with 51,112 periodicals published and 7,812 movies and or video tapes produced.

Famous quotes containing the word magazines:

    Civilization means food and literature all round. Beefsteaks and fiction magazines for all. First-class proteins for the body, fourth-class love-stories for the spirit.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    The most important service rendered by the press and the magazines is that of educating people to approach printed matter with distrust.
