Apparently Hustler’s going after the “I read it for the articles” audience:
HUSTLER Magazine November 2008
The Winter Soldiers Speak Out
In arguably the most shocking piece of the year, HUSTLER Magazine reports on the truth about what’s going on in Iraq. The “Winter Soldier” veterans, as they are called, speak out about the war and the thousands of innocent Iraqi civilian casualties. One of the brave soldiers brought back a video of his sergeant declaring, “The difference between an insurgent and an Iraqi civilian is whether they are dead or alive.” The soldier explains: “If you kill a civilian, he becomes an insurgent because you retroactively make him a threat.” Gruesome photos accompany the article.

I didn’t know Hustler had words.
A vaguely related anecdote: I once interviewed for a job in editorial at Penthouse in New York. The offices were quite posh, with spreads of Penthouses on the coffee table in the lobby. I perused one while waiting, which was the first time I’d ever looked at the magazine. Everyone was extremely nice, and the editorial staff was approximately 80% women (of average appearance). They offered me the job. They weren’t paying particularly well, especially for New York. I declined.
Canal Street Madam Alleges Murder Cover-Up Conspiracy
HUSTLER Magazine never shies away from controversy—and the November issue is no exception. Former Canal Street Madam Jeanette Maier speaks candidly about the untimely demise of D.C. Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who was responsible for outing Republican Senator David Vitter as a client. Maier, now retired, outlines a pattern of alleged homicide that targeted call girls who knew too much about their powerful clients. These women were all found hanged—the victims of suicide, if you believe the official reports. Included on that list is a woman rumored to have entertained former Deputy Secretary of State Randall Tobias.
Hell Ride and Tarantino: An Exclusive With Michael Madsen
Actor Michael Madsen discusses his latest film, Hell Ride—a violent, sex-soaked tale of motorcycle revenge and retribution—and his infamous, action-packed career in the latest issue of HUSTLER. Regarding his movie, Madsen opens up about working with blood-bath ingénue and world-renowned film director Quentin Tarantino. The father of six also discusses changing his image in the entertainment industry and which of his leading ladies he would get down and dirty with.
THIS AIN’T THE MUNSTERS XXX DEBUTS
