Damn, Europe gets all the good stuff, like a Wii game about spanking and much-anticipated 3D porn. Waaaahhh! Yesterday Penthouse, the
esteemed shameless smut rag, launched a high definition 3D channel, which runs from 11 p.m to 5 a.m. and promises 30 hours of new hardcore and softcore pornography a month. Hustler is expected to launch a 3D adult channel later this month as well … which probably means Charlie Sheen will never leave the house ever again. I never though I would say this, Penthouse and Hustler, but thank you.

Nicole Hughes, a former stripper for the Penthouse Executive Club, is suing for “mental anguish, emotional distress, humiliation and loss of reputation” and an undisclosed amount of money after being portrayed on a billboard as a Scores stripper. “I just felt so betrayed. How could they do all that and not tell me?” Hughes says. She claims that she signed a contract saying that she would receive $4 per photo and they would only be used in association with the Penthouse name. Her first mistake was selling her pics for $4—a really bad business decision, but I digress. The club’s management said that they were legally able to do whatever they wanted with the pics.

Sexy pickup lines include “Love God and you will be loved too,” “Trying 2 find the Light can u help,” and “I’m looking for Christian woman with mature thinking for good relationship.” [Newsweek] Keep reading »
U.S. Representative Paul Broun (R-Ga) has introduced a bill that would ban all sexually explicit material from military bases overseas, including Playboy, Penthouse, and Maxim magazines — currently there is a ban on “porn” enforced, but there is a loophole. Critics of the bill say it would be bad for morale.
A Department of Defense committee that reviews materials sold on bases ruled last year that magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse are not pornographic. But Broun’s Military Honor and Decency Act includes language that could make those magazines eligible for the ban…. Broun, a Marine veteran, told Newsweek recently that the magazines sold in military exchanges are partly responsible for a rise in sexual assaults in the military and other problems.
