RIP Mr. Guccione

Penthouse founder Bob Guccione dies aged 79

Bob Guccione, who founded Penthouse magazine and created an erotic corporate empire around it, only to see it crumble as his investments soured and the world of pornography turned toward video and the internet, has died. He was 79.

My favorite king of smut is still Larry Flynt, who started and built his business empire in Ohio.

  1. The Internet has changed so much. I doubt Luke will every know what it feels like to steel a nudie magazine from a quickie mart or barnes and noble. Why steal when you have a web browser?
