Turning Women into Meat . . . Literally

4 May

I realize that this HUSTLER cover is really outdated (June 1978), but I think it’s important to talk about. This was the cover of a HUSTLER magazine form 32 years ago. Yet, I still feel like it’s relevant to how women are viewed in the gentleman’s magazines of today.

Yesterday started reading the book Pornland: How porn has hijacked our sexuality. So far I’m loving the book! I’ll be sure to post some updates about it!

Any thoughts on this image?

    Back at about the same time, hustler published a photo of a woman, naked except for a dog collar. A man was holding a leash attached to the collar. There was a puddle of liquid meant to simulate urine. The caption was some sarcastic remark about how hustler was going to change how they presented their models. Must have been a theme for the 70’s

      yea i’m glad to see they’ve come so far since then. Now they’re not even going to make them into meat or animals, they’re just going to objectify them as the sex objects they really are . . . ugh.

    I’ve seen this cover before. it was a cheap publicity stunt for Larry and it worked- in fact still works because you have included it. It was in bad taste, still is today. I don’t think it means anything beyond what I have stated. I would let it die and go away. Paying attention to it is a trap by it’s creator. The only up side is for Hustler and I’d rather not help them in any way.
