Founder and publisher of obscene satirical Hustler magazine and other koloproktologicheskogo business initiatives Larry Flynt has lived a life full of public battles, some of which he won and some lost. In the 1970s and 1980s, he was a favorite target for so-called right-wing moralists in the USA, but as no one else was willing to give them back. The moralists test of strength led to the assassination of Larry Flynt, after which the publisher partially paralyzed.
Since the release of the first issue in 1974, Hustler rebelled against social norms, managing to equally excite, anger and amuse. Hustler was a decadent and more perverse alternative to the relatively "toothless" pseudotrisomy even Playboy and Penthouse, which didn't show what was shown by the team of Larry Flynt.

"This is done in order to reward our readers for help in time of need. In December 1975, I was forced to raise the price of Hustler. We had no advertising support, which is used by our competitors, and we had no idea if we will be able to survive. But we know one thing: we don't want to be sold to advertisers. Hustler readers overcome this period, as always. We grew and prospered. I always wanted to thank my readers. At first I thought I can do it, suggested to the government the money to start change in society. Last year I tried to give President Jimmy Carter $ 1 million to re-establish the Commission on obscenity and pornography and to get to the true essence of erotic materials. But I returned the money. Then I have proposed to Congress more than $ 1 million to conduct a study on sexual violence against children. While my offer is ignored. Therefore, I decided to give 1 million dollars to the readers of Hustler, which will be selected at random. I know many of you are confused by the information about the change of editorial format Hustler. Nothing has changed, except that the publisher has become better and be more responsive to the complexity of readers in the fight against sexual and spiritual evils of society. I'll remain open to your needs, because without you we would never have achieved our position.
