It's Poker Night with Larry Flynt! Andrew Goldman, The New York Observer
Dinner with wheelchair-bound king pornographer Larry Flynt and his cohorts at Flynt's three-month-old, $35 million Hustler casino in Gardena, California, is bound to be lively, and Andrew Goldman of the New York Observer jots down all the gory details for us. Flynt, with 'his clean-shaven Humpty Dumpty face, his satiny royal blue shirt with the monogrammed cuffs, his onyx pinkie ring and diamond-encrusted watch,' stands king of this royal court. Delving into everything from Flynt's relationships with various politicos (especially the 'Chief Horndog') to his dogs' silicone testicle implants, to the changing face of the porn biz, Goldman portrays a surreal scene. 'You've got Larry and [Penthouse publisher Bob] Guccione doing things that 10 years ago you'd go to prison for,' says Flynt's buddy Dennis Hof about the current state of pornography. 'Then you've got all the Internet stuff: dogs, horses, 12-year-old girls, all this crazed third-world shit going on. Larry comes out lookin' like a choirboy coming next to this stuff.' -- Amanda Luker
