    Penthouse no longer publishing print magazine

    Published January 18, 2016

    The glory days of gentlemen’s magazines are fading fast.

    Penthouse Magazine, the long-running and raunchier rival of Playboy, said Friday that it is ending its print edition after 50 years on the newsstand and will now only be offered in digital format.

    “Reimagined for the preferred consumption of content today by consumers, the digital version of Penthouse Magazine will combine and convert everything readers know and love about the print magazine experience to the power of a digital experience,” publisher FriendFinder Network said in a statement.

    The move comes just months after Playboy announced that it would no longer publish nude photographs as part of a broad redesign that will be unveiled in March.

    I assumed this had already happened about 5 years ago.

    Now 11 year olds are jaded enough to be watching tranny and beastiality porn..

    This would have been a tragedy, if it were still 1979.

    So with all the free sites around, Penthouse thinks people will actually pay for their site?

    Penthouse was low brow IMHO... Hustler was disgusting... when I think about Playboy, I remember reading articles and interviews and HiFi reviews... the girls were a bit too wholesome. Mammary glands... what I wanted to see was vulva... always carefully hidden and airbrushed away...

    How much longer until all the print porn mags are gone in the developed world? Can't imagine any of them are thriving in 2016.

    I remember that nervousness as a young teenager walking into a convenience store to buy porno mags behind the counter hoping the clerk wouldn't deny me. Also the embarrassment if other customers were in line. The plastic bags that had 3 magazines in them with titles I never heard of were fantastic bang for your buck, pun intended

    Edit: Yutes today have it easy with the internet
