    Before the internet, before VHS machines were affordable we had magazines. One of those magazines was Penthouse and they had Penthouse forum. Letters written by readers sent to Penthouse to be publish and shared with other readers. Do you remember Penthouse and Penthouse Forum? Do you remember your first view of one, or perhaps the first you remember really enjoying. It was 1980 and I was starting my teenage years. I remember 2 of the models in that issue, but mostly I remember jerking off to the a specific letter in that issue. The story was about two 18 year old males starting college who experienced their first gay sexual encounter which other. I was so aroused by that story and to this day I still enjoy reading about first time M/M experiences. I never knew boys could enjoy sexual encounters with each other. What I knew about someone who was gay is that it was wrong, or at least that's what I was taught. That same summer I not only experienced my first sexual encounter but that encounter was with another male who was one year older. Had it not been for Penthouse, I don't think that experience would have been as good, nor would I have been as willing to go for it. Has anybody been affected is this manner by Penthouse and Penthouse forum, or perhaps some similar type of medium of that time period.

    Please feel to share you experience.

    For those who have negative comments, please keep them to yourself and move one.

    Thank you.

    Oh yes, part of my early education. Read a few stories, checkout some hot pics and shoot a load. 1980 sounds about right.

    Besides the incestuous hands on seduction I experienced the 70's Penthouse and Playboys had a lot of swingers stories and advanced my education through the Advice and Consent articles!

      Sony didn't allow porn on Betamax that's why VHS took over.

    Part of my acclimation to normal sexuality beginning in 95' roughly came from perusing over my father in laws bought an issue at a time in the day of Playboys and Penthouse from the early 60's-90. Along with them there were a few older "photography" mags from the 50's, exploration of "nudist" culture mags from the 50's-early-60's, then the progressive mags like Evergreen and so on of the 60's, and finally random Hustlers, Oui, Screw, etc.. Most he'd only have one or two of stating he found them distasteful, yet Playboy and Penthouse he had every issue including the "Letters" and "Xavier Hollander Call Me Madam" special issues.

    Most of it had to be read to me just beginning to learn how then, and the fact that most of the pictures and cartoons (remember Lil' Annie Fanny, Oh Wicked Wanda?) of sexualized and naked women made it very easy for me to not blot it out like I had all other things in the past in that I could relate to it, yet most of all, it made me feel normal for the first time realizing that sex and sexual things were not just deviant and out of normal life as I believed.

    I enjoyed it so much, especially relating to Xavier Hollander (if you haven't noticed from how I answer questions), that my tag line here of Happy Hhedonist relates to her. "Happy" for Happy Hooker, and "Hhedonist" with two "H's" for both Hooker and Hedonist.

      I certainly remember Wicked Wanda, I enjoyed that part of Penthouse as well. Two of you have mentioned Xavier Hollander, I remember the monthly article but sadly never read it.

      Thanks

    There were two ways any letter could start.
    1) "I always thought these letters were fake until this happened to me....."
    or
    2) "I never thought this would happen to me......"

    The letters were good for the imagination. I'm thinking the staff wrote many of them, or hired freelancers.

    Penthouse was a "gateway" mag for me.
    Looking at the pictures in my early teens (brothers collection), to reading Forum and Xaviera's column later. Then on to porn bookstores for harder core.

    Forum later published its own small stories magazine, and that led me to a similar one called "Options" that went deeper into same-sex and incest stories.

    Chicken or egg--did reading this stuff open me up to being bi, or was I bi before I even knew it, and is why I enjoyed those stories so much?

    I know they had Penthouse forums 10 years ago when I first got married and magazine also had a DVD in it. My papi and I used to read them religiously and have great sex. That is eventually what led us to xxx sites to read stories from. I think.

    Yes, I have many memories of reading through my grandfather's stash of Penthouse. The Forum was where I learned the most about sex. Lol.

    Brings back nice memories. In the movie sixteen candles when all the boys pay a dollar to go in the bathroom to see the girls panties, it was kinda like that when one of our friends had a penthouse magazine. The girls the stories and us jerking off what could have be better than that, it didn't take us to long to find out?

    Both Playboy and Penthouse had a "Forum" section. It was sort of like a letters to the editor, but readers could mail in their opinions about whatever was on their mind. Playboy Forum ran along the lines of politics and sexual liberation.

    Sometime in the late 70's, Penthouse started publishing letters about sexual experiences. It started as one or two letters at the tail end of the section, but it was obviously popular, because in a couple years, the Penthouse Forum was all sex letters, all of the "I never thought this would happen to me," variety, complete with 10 inch cocks and 44D breasts. There was a great variety, everything from first times, to doggy style with a real dog, first homosexual experiences, first anal sex, etc. There is a first time for everything and Penthouse Forum had it covered. After a few years, the Forum section was so popular, Penthouse began republishing them in a Reader's Digest type format, which could easily be held in one hand.

    Penthouse Forum was my introduction to sexual literature...yeah...let's call it that. I was really young, and I couldn't believe that written word could be so hot! I actually preferred it to the pictures.

    Sadly, We used to write stories for the Penthouse Forum and make bets on who could get published. Those were my college days, and upon entering the workforce, I learned other college students from other colleges did the same thing. Many were made up...kinda like on here.

    I also still enjoy reading sex stories, impossible to estimate how many I have actually read over the years.

    I remember back in the 1980's I would sneak into my brother's room and go through his box of magazines to borrow a few. He had Penthouse, Playboy, & Hustler. I remember reading the stories and letters in the Penthouse and I thought there was a similar section in the Playboys. The Hustler magazines were purely for the pictures though. They would show couples in action in their photos and made Penthouse or Playboy look like church reading materials. I always had fun with the Hustlers because I would look at tall the pictures, and after looking at them enough, I would see the mistakes, like the roll of duct tape that was used to hold a prop in place, but it got left in the scene. I remember that I could almost always find at least one outhouse in every issue.
