LOS ANGELES, CA—June 24, 2024— HUSTLER Magazine proudly announces its 50th Anniversary Collector’s Issue, arriving in inboxes and mailboxes on June 27, 2024. Since its first issue hit the stands in July 1974, HUSTLER has pushed boundaries, celebrated sex, and championed free speech. This milestone edition marks half a century of exceptional journalism and unapologetic advocacy.

While other magazines displayed airbrushed models seemingly sans genitals, Larry Flynt was not only spreading pink, but revolutionizing the adult magazine industry by publishing creative, groundbreaking layouts exploring all aspects of sexuality. HUSTLER stood out for its fearless approach to showcasing diversity and inclusivity long before it became mainstream. From the pioneering “Vegas Folly” and “Trick or Treat” shoots to the controversial “Butch: A Black Stud & His Georgia Peach,” Flynt’s vision defied societal norms and embraced sexual freedom.

Throughout the decades, HUSTLER has presented innovative photo spreads, from the thought-provoking “The Rape of Justice” to the imaginative “Lust in Space.” Celebrity-directed shoots in the ’80s, helmed by stars like Dennis Hopper and Frank Zappa, added a unique flair. The magazine’s legacy includes stunning shoots in exotic locations, such as “Avery Adams: Shipshape,” further cementing HUSTLER’s status as a trailblazer in adult entertainment.

“As we celebrate 50 years of HUSTLER Magazine, I am proud to commemorate our golden anniversary with this very special issue,” says Anne Denbok, HUSTLER’s Editorial Director. “Our commitment to Larry’s goals of promoting sex positivity and expanding the boundaries of free speech has never wavered. This anniversary is not just a testament to our resilience and innovation, but also to the bold and fearless spirit of everyone who has contributed to HUSTLER’s legacy and success.”

This collector’s edition includes exclusive Q&As by John Blaylock with key contributors who have shaped the magazine. These include:

Larry Flynt considered cartoons to be vital to the magazine and demanded they be outrageous, irreverent and roll-on-the-ground funny. This special edition showcases the editorial staff’s—and Larry’s—favorites.

HUSTLER’s July 1976 second-anniversary issue launched the iconic HUSTLER Beaver Hunt amateur photo contest, declaring it the magazine “of the readers, by the readers and for the readers.” A retrospective of Beavers of the Year is featured in the 50th.

The two full-length model layouts published in this issue are emblematic of HUSTLER’s appreciation for exceptional beauty and support of the adult industry. Vanna Bardot, winner of the 2024 AVN Female Performer of the Year Award, graces a 10-page spread titled “Going All the Way,” shot by ThisYearsModel.com. “When I heard that this pictorial was going to be in HUSTLER’s 50th Anniversary Issue, I was really excited,” says Vanna. “To me, the magazine represents sexual freedom—the ability to show yourself how you want to show yourself, not having to abide by society’s standards.”

AVN’s Best New Starlet this year, Chanel Camryn, is featured in the 12-page centerfold spread “Hardcore,” also photographed by ThisYearsModel.com. “I think HUSTLER’s legacy is about empowering women,” says Chanel. “That’s what all sex-related work means to me. Everywhere else in society, men are put on a pedestal, but women run the show in porn. It reverses the roles in a way. It’s kind of cool.”

Publisher Liz Flynt’s editorial urges Americans to reclaim the flag from the Far Right, emphasizing that true patriotism embodies free speech and cannot coexist with censorship. Highlighting alarming trends like book bans, the decline of independent journalism, and the spread of misinformation, it criticizes the MAGA movement for undermining freedoms under the guise of patriotism. Reflecting on five decades of advocating for freedom, the editorial underscores the ongoing battle to preserve fundamental rights in America.
