Hustler has parted ways amicably with the VHS format, announcing that the fittingly-retro Britney Rears 3: Helical-Scan Gang Bang would be the last of the company's titles to be released on tape.

"I always thought VHS stood for Very Hot Sex," Flynt did not say, "but with my giant-killing capabilities I have re-dubbed it Virtually-Hobbled Sitting Duck."

"What about that extra D?" I didn't ask, nowhere near him at the time.

"D is for Douchebag," he continued. "Stop making shit up."

Consumer VHS format was introduced by Sony in 1976. Adult's early adoption of VHS versus Beta not only drove sales but also helped to legitimize the format, and made dirty movies accessible to millions of people who would otherwise have had to rub shoulders in video stores with people who would later go on to hang out in chatrooms.
