    Sex Files: Brittany 3, Truck Fucks that Knock Up

    This will be the last of the Brittany tales, every other encounter to follow was more of a vacation for her, and we didn't really fuck when it came too. But I did choke her out with my dick in the back of her throat.

    History of Penthouse Magazine's 1969 American Launch

    History of Penthouse Magazine's 1969 American Launch

    Penthouse began publication as a British magazine, founded on a shoestring in London in 1965 by Bob Guccione, a relatively unknown American artist with no publishing experience. With the assistance of a small, but willing staff, he was able to go against traditional England and, after a controversial beginning, make Penthouse the largest selling quality men's magazine in the history of British publishing.

    Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story

    Filthy Gorgeous tells the story of a self-made billionaire who used his first success, Penthouse, to build a media empire that included over 100 publications. Guccione was a crusader for freedom of speech, an outspoken advocate of Vietnam Veteran’s rights, and the man who cost former Miss America, Vanessa Williams, her crown. Guccione also exposed the hypocrisy of the religious constituents who attempted to destroy him while hiring prostitutes for their own pleasure.

    Evolution of The Guccione Collection

    Evolution of The Guccione Collection

    The man behind Penthouse, one most controversial men's magazine of all time, Bob Guccione, was not just a media mogul, but a man of many facets. He was an artist, photographer and avid art collector. Over his five decade career, he helped shape the future of art and pop culture. Without his contribution, an artistic bend on counter-culture with trademark defused soft focus photography and an unapologetic editorial style, mainstream media might not look the way it does today.

    Sheila Kennedy's 'No One's Pet' Excerpt: Axl Rose in the Hotel Room

    From Penthouse Pet to reality star, Sheila Kennedy turned a modeling stint into a longterm career in the entertainment industry. Penthouse Pet of the Year in 1983, the aspiring actress broke out as one of Bob Guccione's stars. Stardom had many benefits, including roles in films such as The First Turn-On!! and Spring Break, but it also had its drawbacks. Young Sheila was quickly drawn into the world of sex and rock n' roll, including a bout with none other than 80s rock legend, Axl Rose.

    Vanessa Williams is a Metaphor for Conservative Hypocrisy 

    Vanessa Williams is a Metaphor for Conservative Hypocrisy 

    Here's a little Jeopardy-style quiz. The category is “Women’s History”—if we agree, just for a moment, that women’s history is different from any other kind of history. So: “Margaret Gorman, a sixteen-year-old from Washington DC, in 1921.” If your answer is “Who was the very first Miss America?” then you win the prize; and you’ll probably know, too, that five years later “the Inter-City Beauty Pageant,” as Miss America had once been called, had come a long way, baby. Miss America 1926, Norma Smallwood, earned $100,000 in appearance fees—more than Babe Ruth made that year, or for that matter the President of the United States. (Who was Calvin Coolidge—but you knew that, I’m sure.)

    Ultimate Guide to Vintage Penthouse Pets

    Ultimate Guide to Vintage Penthouse Pets

    Beautiful women were attracted to the world of Penthouse Magazine and founder, photographer Bob Guccione. As an artist he chose his women from an internal perception of beauty that transcended society's norms and historical practice. The women that graced the pages of Penthouse Magazine in the 1970s, 1980s and early part of the 1990s were chosen by Bob Guccione himself. By the time the late 1990s rolled around the magazine's editorial control had shifted away from Bob and with it came an end to an era. Bob Guccione's vintage Penthouse pets are a unique group of women spanning three decade that represent the eclectic as well as singularly defined components that Guccione looked for in a muse or Penthouse Pet. By no means was beauty limited to the physical nature of the Penthouse Pets. Each woman was both unique and at the same time shared similar thematic aspects in their lives and ideologies. While all the vintage Penthouse Pets were beautiful, some stand out as iconic in the history of the famous men's magazine.

    Who Is Gennifer Flowers?

    Who Is Gennifer Flowers?

    The Clintons must have one hell of a green thumb because this is one flower that refuses to wilt. Gennifer Flowers, the former model and lounge singer who became notorious after her affair with Bill Clinton over two decades ago, is back with a vengeance. Donald Trump, never one to shy away from controversy, tweeted to his millions of followers that he would be extending an invitation to the ex-mistress to the first Presidential debate between him and Hillary Clinton. With all the dirty politics happening so far in this election, are we surprised? Not really. But who really is Gennifer Flowers, and what role does she play in this election—almost 20 years after Bill Clinton admitted to his affair with her? Flowers has said publicly she’ll accept the invitation from Donald Trump (shocking, really...) to sit in the front row of the presidential debate.

    Sexism in Language

    Sexism in Language

    Language is sexist. It has never met the equality needs of women. As gender issues move to the forefront of society's eye, it will continue to combat equality. A male-dominated language cannot meet the needs of those whose gender identities do not "fit" the bifurcated mold it perpetuates. Society must stop turning a blind eye to male-centric language and pronouns, and focus on speaking in a way that victimizes no one. But how do we edit a language that has been around for centuries?

    A psychologist with an international reputation, both as author and as a leader of the behaviorist school, Professor Hans Jurgen Eysenck was director of the Institute of Psychiatry at London's Maudsley hospital. A prolific popularizer, he wrote more than a dozen books expounding aspects of his absorbing subject (Uses and Abuses of Psychology, etc.) and he is particularly remembered for his paperbacks of intelligence tests. To professional colleagues, he is an eloquent repudiator of Freud and an indefatigable researcher into the mechanics of personality.
