BOB GUCCIONE, FOUNDER OF PENTHOUSE, DEAD AT 79

Wall Street Journal. Bob Guccione, founder of Penthouse magazine, has died.  He was 79 years old.  According to a statement from his family, Guccione died on Wednesday at Plano Specialty Hospital in Plano, Texas, following a prolonged battle with cancer.

Penthouse, founded in 1965, was a kind of dirtier distant relation of the relatively classier Playboy.  While Playboy employed top writers to pen it’s articles, and lured leading female stars to pose in its pictorials, Penthouse was more focused on pure (and not so pure) sex.  To read the remainder of the article from the WSJ, click above.
