The Best Magazine On Porn is a weekly feature that looks at the best porn magazines and movies available on the web.
Each week, a panel of experts from TheWrap and the Hollywood Reporter weigh in on which is the best.
In honor of the 10th anniversary of the publication of The Best of Playboy, we look back on the best of Playboy’s 10-year history.
Here’s what we found.
Porn’s first issue of Playboy in January 1973, which features a nude model wearing a bathing suit.
The magazine is dated February 4, 1973.
(AP) The first issue has the headline, “This Time the Porno’s in the News!” and includes an article from a sex columnist who is reporting on a new sexual scandal.
“This time, we’re reporting on the sexual scandal of the century,” she writes.
“It involves a porno star who’s had her career ruined by a Hollywood producer.”
“Now it’s all about the porno stars,” she continues.
“And the producers of the pornos are still getting away with it.”
Later, the article cites the recent downfall of a porn star named Lisa Ann, who was arrested on federal charges of having sex with a 13-year-old boy.
“Now, that is a porn scene that you should see,” the columnist concludes.
(The Washington Post)The second issue is dated May 9, 1973, and features a report from the director of a sex-ed class that tells the students how to avoid sexual abuse.
“A good rule of thumb is that you don’t want to have sex with anyone you don,t know,” the director says.
“But you should never, ever go to a porn set unless you are absolutely certain that you are getting the best, most pleasurable sex possible.”
(The New York Times)The third issue is from March 3, 1974, and is about a porn actress named Julie Kavner.
“In the last decade, Julie Kavi has become the sex symbol of the generation,” the writer explains.
“Her career is going nowhere fast.
She’s been sued several times for sexual harassment.
She has been sued by the people who knew her as a child star, and she has been accused of having affairs with male employees of her production company.”
In the fourth issue, dated June 21, 1974 — the week after the arrest of Lisa Ann — the writer notes that porn stars have been in hot water before, including in 2006 when Nicole Richie was accused of being an underage prostitute.
“After her arrest, Nicole Richie is still a minor in the eyes of the law,” the column says.
(“Nicole Richie is now an adult, but the charges are still pending.”)
“And her lawyer says that if she were to be found to have been under 18 at the time of the crime, she could be sentenced to 10 years in prison,” the reporter continues.
(TMZ)The fifth issue is on April 30, 1975, and it includes a story from an executive producer at a porn studio, who is investigating the claims of several porn actresses that they had been sexually abused.
“The producer of the studio is looking into the allegations of a few porn actresses who claim that they were sexually abused,” the article reads.
“He’s also looking into whether some of the women are being paid to make these allegations, and if they are.
He has the names of the actresses who have come forward and wants to make sure that nothing goes wrong.”(The New Yorker)The sixth issue is April 21, 1975 — the day that Lisa Ann was arrested and sentenced to prison.
“She’s got a lot to live up to, but she’s also got a few very important lessons to learn,” the producer writes.
(“This is the day the world will remember Lisa Ann.”)
“It’s hard for her to take the first sentence seriously, because it’s the first time she’s been in the media for a long time,” the editor continues.
(“I can only imagine how tough it must be for her and her family.
But, as I said, she’s got lessons to teach.
She can learn that if you’re going to do the right thing, you have to be honest and upfront, you can’t have your reputation destroyed.
And that she has the right to do whatever she wants to do.”)”
This was an enormous day for the entire industry,” the actress says in the story.
“They’re all feeling really, really bad right now.
There’s a lot of hurt and grief.
But she’s going to find some good people in the world.”
Porn magazine covers the next five issues, including the premiere of “Pornstar,” in June 1975.
(“Porn star is in the news again, this time as the latest in a string of alleged crimes against the innocent.”)
“I can’t believe I’m saying this,” the magazine says of the controversy surrounding Lisa Ann’s arrest
