That's what they all say. (Only teasing!)

Agree with Phil. I worked for MAYFAIR magazine and can vouch, with some pride, that we fostered the careers of many a successful writer. Why, even Humph (Humphrey Lyttelton RIP) used to write our restaurant reviews.

FIRE, do I detect a whiff of censorship in your posts?

This thread has gotten me to start looking for (collecting) old Playboys with Mr. B's stories in them. Thanks for the idea.

Speaking of Hefner's daughter Christine! I never hear what ever happened to Hefner's son, David, who has to be around the same age as his sister.

Christine was born in 1952. David in 1955. Would be interesting to see how David views his father. David has been in related electronics field.

Nico~ Per pornography in years past.
It was mostly illegal, in the US, until around the early 1970's. Since then many institutions of standards have fallen to the wayside. The largest is perhaps the Catholic Decency League that used to rate motion pictures as A B or C. Hugh Hefner back in 1960 was sued by the city of Chicago for obscenity and after months wound-up with a deadlocked jury. Frightened, many magazines toned down their content afterwards. The first obscenity laws started to fall when courts demanded resolution based on local community standards. But by then a new generation didn't seem to care much. And so porn headed towards legalization. The internet was solely, initially successful because of pornography. No government or social institution could police the explosion. It has thus spawned a new generation much of who are unaware of why the standards were originally put in place. For instance, pornography was rampant in the movies in the teens and twenties and very early thirties. Standards had to be put in place.

Nard, I recall the A-B-C standards. PG and even G nowadays have segments that are questionable or unacceptable (in my opinion) for the younger crowd. Hollyweird seems to sell the trash to our kids still in diapers. Why is all of the profanity and innuendo necessary when it was not in the original written story? (Standards!? We don't need no stinking standards!)

Our 2 guys are under 13yrs., so PG-13's are no-go's. Their pals have all of the "must-have" dvd's, but we still refrain from okaying their going over to watch these flicks. Then, there is TV (remember RB's '53 451 warnings!). Just as bad. Now, unhooked from the media's life support system for three years, we are all doing just fine, thank you!!

What a bunch of nonsense. Hefner is a publishing icon in cultural terms that has turned the tide of moral behaviour into the direction of 'hell'. No one under 25 years old nowadays (no one using the broad term no-one), seems to understand the terms blushing, embarassment, shame, or sin. Thank you Mr. Hefner.

Well, I think we can do without Embarassment.

It's not really a virtue.
