Abstract:

An Eye-Opening, Sex-Driven Journey Through Sixty Years Of American Pop Culture, As Seen From The Dark Side Of The Newsstand.

Dirty! Dirty! Dirty! is the wild and uncompromising history of America's four most infamous magazines and the outlaws behind them. Author Mike Edison rips the sheet off of the sleazy myth-making machine of Hugh Hefner and Playboy, and reveals the doomed history of Hefner's arch rival, Penthouse founder Bob Guccione, whose messiah complex and heedless spending--on a legendary flop of a movie paid for with bags of cash, a raunchy porn magazine for women, and a pie-in-the sky scheme for a portable nuclear reactor--fueled the greatest riches to rags story ever told.

The adventure begins in the early 1950s and rips through the tumultuous '60s and '70s-- when Hustfer'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, Jayne Mansfield, 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 self-perpetuated lies. --Book Jacket.
