Being elected to the United States Congress seems like an absolute nightmare. As far as I can tell, Congress is just a collection of America’s slimiest, most ignorant, sycophantic, and petty people tasked with making the nation’s laws. Jon Stewart said it best when he asked, “If “con” is the opposite of pro, then isn’t Congress the opposite of progress?”
Indeed it is, Jon, since nothing ever gets done.
But being a Congressman would have its fair share of perks. Tax deductions, health and life insurance, member’s representational allowance, government pension, free subscription to Hustler Magazine.
Wait what? Congressmen get a free subscription to Hustler Magazine?
Yes it’s true! Since 1983, Larry Flynt has sent a copy of his dirty magazine, packed with dozens porn pictures, adult comics, satirical articles, and more in a manila envelope to each and every member of Congress.
After 31 years of receiving free Hustler magazines in the mail, you’d think someone would have tried to put a stop to it. Following complaints from 264 congressional offices in 1984, the U.S. Postal Service asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to block the mailings. But that request failed when the court ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped. The court said:
“Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress. Members are not forced to read the magazine or other of the mail they receive in volume. We cannot imagine that Congressional offices all lack wastebaskets.”
For Larry Flynt, it was a First Amendment issue. It was his right, as an American, to petition the government by sending them free copies of Hustler every month, and the court agreed. Thirty years later, the congressional subscription count remains the same: 535 (which for those of you who aren’t American, 535 is the entirety of the US Congress. 435 Congressmen and 100 Senators). Sadly, the magazine is not sent to members of the executive branch.
Staffers say that receiving Hustlers in the mail has just become a part of the rountine and that it’s just a way for them to have some fun (not by reading it though). Most of the time, the magazines end up in the trash. Yet another example of government waste. Not only are they wasting our money, they’re also wasting perfectly good porn magazines. As if I needed another reason to hate the government.

Remember in April when Olivia Sprauer was fired from her teaching job just because she posed in some semi-nude glamor pictures?
Obviously I’m opposed to any discrimination against nude models but Olivia Sprauer’s firing might have ultimately been a good thing because she’s now going to be revealing her gorgeous body in porn! Dreams really do come true… Continue Reading
I get anywhere from ten to fifty emails a day from men and women all over the world asking how they can become porn stars. While it’s extremely flattering that they would want my advice, the truth is I’m not a performer. I just write this blog. I have no tips for porn stars.
You all can stop emailing me the same dang question. But I understand why people keep emailing me. Being a porn star is now a realistic career choice for people. It makes sense that they would reach out to someone on the fringes of the adult industry to figure out how to be a successful porn star.
Lucky for all you would-be-porn stars, one of the world’s greatest pornographers, Larry Flynt of Hustler Magazine, has come out with 6 tips for porn stars. It’s sound advice for future or active performers.
So let’s see what Mr. Flynt has to say about being a porn star… Continue Reading
Nicole Weider, a 26 year old former-model, launched a campaign last year against the Hearst Corporation called the Anti-Cosmo Mission. The mission calls for Cosmopolitan Magazine to be packaged in a non-transparent wrapper and sold only to adults.
This women’s magazine will get the same treatment as Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse, etc.
Weider’s Mission gained a powerful ally today in Victoria Hearst, one of the heirs to the Hearst publishing empire.
Ms Hearst explained her decision to join the Anti-Cosmo Mission to FOX411’s Pop Tarts column:
“About 12 years ago, before the Lord told me to found Praise Him Ministries in 2001, I noticed how pornographic the content of Cosmopolitan magazine was. I telephoned Frank Bennack, head of the company, and told him Cosmopolitan should not be sold to minors and that I would like to address the board about it. Continue Reading
Everyone loves a come back. Though the chemistry may not be the same or product quite as good, it’s always exciting to get the old team back together. Which is why we’re very excited to hear about Hustler’s latest release Nina Loves Ron.
Nina Loves Ron reunites two of the porn industry’s favorites, Nina Hartley and Ron Jeremy. They did fifteen scenes together all between 1985 and 1991 but on July 31st, 2012 they will be performing together once again!
This DVD is extremely cool for reuniting two heavyweights. What I like even more about it is that it is made more or less for porn fans. Sex between Ron Jeremy and Nina Hartley will not appeal to everyone, that’s a fact. The only people who will want to see it are fans who are aware of the historical and cultural importance of them boning on screen again.
If you don’t know who either of these stars are, let me do a quick run down for you.
