Playboy’s Latest Cover Looks A Lot Like Hustler’s Infamous 1978 Meat Grinder Cover

Hustler was a porn pioneer in the 1970s, changing the status quo by pressing the limits in print pornography. As a result, Hustler was the recipient of huge backlash and the magazine’s creator, Larry Flynt, was involved in many legal battles over free speech and pornography. The 1978 cover of Hustler gained notoriety for depicting a woman like a piece of meat. The cover reads “We will no longer hang women up like pieces of meat,” and the quote along with the depiction of a woman being made into meat was a direct response to criticism of pornography. The December 2013 issue of Playboy features a pair of legs upside down in a chimney, and it shares a similar compositional disembodiment with the infamous June 1978 cover of Hustler featuring a woman’s legs being fed through a grinder, while the head and torso have already been turned into ground meat.

    There are only so many angles you can get of an upside down woman for a magazine cover.
