Perhaps the adult industry's most passionate advocate is Larry Flynt. Alone he seems to have the credibility to persuasively argue that viewing dirtpipe milkshakes is our right.

Each of the porn world's established or ascendent organizations has tripped over itself to bring Flynt out to deliver his winning stump speech, the money shot being "The greatest thing a government can do for its citizens is recognize their right to be left alone."

Flynt has his good and bad days, and it is hard to watch him struggle with his speech. It is also difficult to separate the crises within Hustler, the shakeups among its underbosses, and the fact that employees have to pay to park in the the building that bears his name with the simple fact that thousands of people previously or currently allowed to make their living off this odd business owe the privilege to him.

Flynt past (looking a little like Vince Vaughn) and present stars in the new documentary Larry Flynt: The Right to Be Left Alone, from New York's Midtown Films.
