Larry Flynt was born November 1, 1942 and is an American
publisher and the head of Larry Flynt Publications (LFP). In 2003, Arena
magazine 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 battles
involving the First Amendment, and has unsuccessfully run for public office. He
is paralyzed from the waist down due to injuries sustained in a 1978 assassination
attempt.

In March 1972, Flynt created the Hustler Newsletter, a four-page,
black-and-white publication about his clubs. This item became so popular with
his 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, the
American economy went into recession. Revenues of Hustler Clubs declined, and
Flynt had to either refinance his debts or declare bankruptcy. He decided to
turn the Hustler Newsletter  into a
sexually explicit magazine with national distribution. He paid the start-up
costs of the new magazine by deferring payment of sales taxes his clubs owed on
their activities.

In July 1974, the first issue of Hustler was published.
Although the first few issues went largely unnoticed, within a year the
magazine became highly lucrative and Flynt was able to pay his tax debts. In
November 1974, Hustler showed the first pink-shots, or photos of
open vulvas. Flynt had to fight to publish each issue, as many people,
including some at his distribution company, found the magazine too explicit and
threatened to remove it from the market. Shortly thereafter, Flynt was
approached by a paparazzo who had taken nude pictures of former First Lady
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis while she was sunbathing on vacation in 1971. He
purchased them for $18,000 and published them in the August 1975 issue. That
issue attracted widespread attention, and 1 million copies were sold within a
few days. Now a millionaire, Flynt bought a $375,000 mansion ($1.4 million in
2009 dollars)

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

In July 1974, Flynt first published Hustler as a step
forward from the Hustler Newsletter, which was advertising for his businesses.
The magazine struggled for the first year, partly because many distributors and
wholesalers refused to handle it as its nude photos became increasingly
graphic. It targeted working-class men and grew from a shaky start to a peak
circulation of around 3 million (current circulation is below 500,000). In
November 1974, it showed the first pink-shots, photos of open
vulvas. The publication of nude paparazzi pictures of Jacqueline Kennedy
Onassis in August 1975 was a major coup. Hustler has often featured more explicit
photographs than comparable magazines and has contained depictions of women
that some find demeaning, such as a naked woman in a meat grinder or presented
as a dog on a leash ” though Flynt later said that the meat grinder image was a
criticism of the pornography industry itself.[citation needed]

Flynt created his privately held company Larry Flynt
Publications (LFP) in 1976. LFP published several other magazines. It also
included a distribution business, something that may have angered the Mafia,
which traditionally organized the distribution of porn. LFP did not expand
beyond pornography until 1986, but later its output included more mainstream
work. LFP sold the distribution business, as well as several mainstream
magazines, beginning in 1996. LFP started to produce pornographic movies in
1998, through the Hustler Video film studio, which bought VCA Pictures in 2003.

On June 22, 2000, Flynt opened the Hustler Casino, a card
room located in the Los Angeles suburb of Gardena. After it opened, many observers
in 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, the
California Gambling Control Commission has confirmed that Flynt is the sole
proprietor and gaming licensee of the Hustler Casino.

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

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