Larry Flynt Speaker Profile

Larry Flynt was born November 1, 1942 and is an Americanpublisher and the head of Larry Flynt Publications (LFP). In 2003, Arenamagazine listed him on the 50 Powerful People in Porn list.

LFP mainly produces sexually graphic videos and magazines,most notably Hustler. Flynt has fought several prominent legal battlesinvolving the First Amendment, and has unsuccessfully run for public office. Heis paralyzed from the waist down due to injuries sustained in a 1978 assassinationattempt.

In March 1972, Flynt created the Hustler Newsletter, a four-page,black-and-white publication about his clubs. This item became so popular withhis customers that by May 1972 he expanded the Hustler Newsletter to 16 pages,then to 32 pages in August 1973. As a result of the 1973 oil crisis, theAmerican economy went into recession. Revenues of Hustler Clubs declined, andFlynt had to either refinance his debts or declare bankruptcy. He decided toturn the Hustler Newsletter  into asexually explicit magazine with national distribution. He paid the start-upcosts of the new magazine by deferring payment of sales taxes his clubs owed ontheir activities.

In July 1974, the first issue of Hustler was published.Although the first few issues went largely unnoticed, within a year themagazine became highly lucrative and Flynt was able to pay his tax debts. InNovember 1974, Hustler showed the first pink-shots, or photos ofopen vulvas. Flynt had to fight to publish each issue, as many people,including some at his distribution company, found the magazine too explicit andthreatened to remove it from the market. Shortly thereafter, Flynt wasapproached by a paparazzo who had taken nude pictures of former First LadyJacqueline Kennedy Onassis while she was sunbathing on vacation in 1971. Hepurchased them for $18,000 and published them in the August 1975 issue. Thatissue attracted widespread attention, and 1 million copies were sold within afew days. Now a millionaire, Flynt bought a $375,000 mansion ($1.4 million in2009 dollars)

By 1970, he ran eight strip clubs throughout Ohio in Cincinnati, Toledo, Akronand Cleveland.

In July 1974, Flynt first published Hustler as a stepforward from the Hustler Newsletter, which was advertising for his businesses.The magazine struggled for the first year, partly because many distributors andwholesalers refused to handle it as its nude photos became increasinglygraphic. It targeted working-class men and grew from a shaky start to a peakcirculation of around 3 million (current circulation is below 500,000). InNovember 1974, it showed the first pink-shots, photos of openvulvas. The publication of nude paparazzi pictures of Jacqueline KennedyOnassis in August 1975 was a major coup. Hustler has often featured more explicitphotographs than comparable magazines and has contained depictions of womenthat some find demeaning, such as a naked woman in a meat grinder or presentedas a dog on a leash though Flynt later said that the meat grinder image was acriticism of the pornography industry itself.[citation needed]

Flynt created his privately held company Larry FlyntPublications (LFP) in 1976. LFP published several other magazines. It alsoincluded a distribution business, something that may have angered the Mafia,which traditionally organized the distribution of porn. LFP did not expandbeyond pornography until 1986, but later its output included more mainstreamwork. LFP sold the distribution business, as well as several mainstreammagazines, beginning in 1996. LFP started to produce pornographic movies in1998, through the Hustler Video film studio, which bought VCA Pictures in 2003.

On June 22, 2000, Flynt opened the Hustler Casino, a cardroom located in the Los Angeles suburb of Gardena. After it opened, many observersin the gaming industry speculated that, because of his past legal troubles,Flynt might not be able to get a license to operate a card room. However, theCalifornia Gambling Control Commission has confirmed that Flynt is the soleproprietor and gaming licensee of the Hustler Casino.

Other ventures either wholly owned by or licensed by Flyntor LFP, Inc. include the Hustler Clubs and the Hustler Hollywood Store. LFPalso publishes Barely Legal, a pornographic magazine featuring young women whohave recently turned 18, the minimum age for a pornographic or erotic model.

In 2001, Larry Flynt stated his net worth as $400 million.
