Penthouse ends Print-Magazine (UPDATE: Nope.)

[update 20.1.] „Penthouse, the adult magazine founded by Bob Guccione, said Tuesday it has no plans to shut down print publishing even as plans for the website's overhaul are underway, refuting reports that the magazine's days are numbered.“

Das erste der legendären drei Titten-Magazine (Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse) gibt seine Print-Version auf und existiert ab sofort nur noch als Online-Mag: Penthouse Magazine Discontinues Print Edition. Der Playboy will nächstes Jahr nochmal ohne Nacktfotos und Brüste relaunchen, Larry Flynt hatte schon vor einem Jahr orakelt „I don't think Hustler's going to be around very much longer“. The Internet is halt for porn.

Penthouse Magazine, the long-running and raunchier rival of Playboy, said Friday that it is ending its print edition after 50 years on the newsstand and will now only be offered in digital format.

“Reimagined for the preferred consumption of content today by consumers, the digital version of Penthouse Magazine will combine and convert everything readers know and love about the print magazine experience to the power of a digital experience,” publisher FriendFinder Network said in a statement.
