Larry Flynt Reflects On Hustler Magazine For 40th Anniversary

Hustler Magazine's Larry Flynt is still as blunt as ever.

The porn mogul and publisher spoke with HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri on Tuesday about working in the porn industry for 40 years. Flynt jokingly said that one of his proudest moments was "helping all those young men make it through puberty."

Flynt also addressed how Americans have evolved in their acceptance of sex and gotten over their "knee-jerk reactions" to prurient material. When asked how he thinks Hustler pushed the envelope, Flynt had quite the response.

"When Hustler started, no one really knew what a woman looked like, and I think that what we did was let the whole nation know that a woman’s vagina had as much personality as her face," He said.
