Penthouse drops print magazines to deal with internet porn

Web porn simply claimed one other casualty. Penthouse has introduced that it is dropping its print journal after fifty one years of publication — from an unspecified level sooner or later, you will have to go surfing to get these articles and racy pictures (okay, principally the pictures). There might be a transition interval, in the event you’re not but able to ditch paper. Additionally, the transfer will see the journal shut its New York Metropolis workplaces and transfer into the Los Angeles location of its mum or dad firm, FriendFinder Networks.

FriendFinder is not particular concerning the causes behind the choice in addition to a plan to “hold Penthouse aggressive.” Nevertheless, it does not take a lot to learn between the strains. Very similar to Playboy, Penthouse is struggling in an period when it is trivial to seek out porn on-line, together with the kinky stuff. It needed to both give its print magazine a greater cause to exist (Playboy‘s technique) or else minimize that overhead utterly. Provided that FriendFinder stared chapter within the face simply a few years in the past, it is easy to see why the corporate would relatively play it protected and go all-digital.
