Larry Flynt, 'Hustler' magazine founder, dies at 78
Hustler Founder Larry Flynt Dead at 78 Adult Entertainment
He had been paralyzed and nearly killed in a assassination attempt. From his beginnings as a fledgling Ohio strip club owner to his reign as founder of one of the most outrageously explicit adult-oriented magazines, Flynt constantly challenged the establishment and was intensely disliked by the religious right and feminist groups that said he demeaned women and put them at risk with pictures of bondage and other controversial acts. The U. Supreme Court agreed with him at least once, when he won a long and bitter battle with the Rev. Jerry Falwell, who sued him for libel after a Hustler alcohol ad suggested Falwell had lost his virginity to his mother in an outhouse.

Today, Hustler is still considered more explicit and more self-consciously lowbrow than such well-known competitors as Playboy and Penthouse.
