Dirty! Dirty! Dirty!: Of Playboys, Pigs, and Penthouse Paupers?An American Tale of Sex and Wonder
Buy on Amazon
The adventure begins in the early 1950s and rips through the tumultuous ?60s and ?70s ?when Hustler?s Larry Flynt and Screw?s Al Goldstein were arrested dozens of times, recklessly pushing the boundaries of free speech, attacking politicians, and putting unapologetic filth front and center ? through the 1990s when a sexed-up culture high on the Internet finally killed the era when men looked for satisfaction in the centerfold. As America goes, so goes it?s porn.
Along the way we meet many unexpected heroes?John Lennon, Lenny Bruce, Helen Gurley Brown, and the staff of Mad magazine among them?and villains?from Richard Nixon and the Moral Majority to Hugh Hefner himself, whose legacy, we learn, is built on a self-perpetuated lie.
