Rub One Out in Memory of Guccione

Dear Penthouse Forum: I never thought anything like this would ever happen to me…but in today’s world of instant online access to whatever form of porn turns one’s crank, I take a moment here in my little corner of the blogosphere to remember the founder of the magazine that so pleasantly corrupted me in the days before the internet.
Thanks, Bob. Resquiat in pace.

DALLAS — Bob Guccione, who founded Penthouse magazine and created an erotic corporate empire around it, only to see it crumble as his investments soured and the world of pornography turned toward video and the Internet, died Wednesday. He was 79.
