NEW YORK — Cheri Magazine, touted as "the World's Hottest Sex Mag," celebrates its 31st anniversary with a retrospective issue available on newsstands tomorrow.

"We've broken a lot of big stars — Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick, Gina Lynn, the list goes on. Mary Carey debuted as an amateur in our book years ago," Cheri Editor in Chief Rob Errera told XBIZ. "They all start out here, and hopefully stay here when they become big stars."

In the 31st anniversary issue, Cheri revisits classic images from its past, including Tera Patrick’s first Cheri cover, Gina Lynn’s Tart of the Month layout and Jenna Jameson’s first adult magazine cover, the December 1993 issue. The issue also has interviews with performers Casey Parker and Hillary Scott, pictorial features with Shay Laren, Renee Perez, Celeste Star, Katsumi and Ben English, and a 10-page story about January's Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. Newsstand issues are packaged with a “Classic Legends” DVD, featuring Nina Hartley, Jill Kelly, Kylie Ireland, Taylor Wane and Wendy Whoppers.

"Cheri is the best hardcore magazine out there, and I think all the competitors look to see what we're doing," Errera said. "We've got some good stuff coming up in the future too. Jesse Jane is still on board as our entertainment editor, and it looks like we're in for good times ahead."

Cheri was launched in 1976 as the “All True Sex News” magazine, focusing on coverage from around the world. In the late 1970s and 1980s, the focus was changed to a big-boob magazine, and in the early ‘90s Cheri was repositioned again to include “all things sexual” with the inclusion of boy/girl pictorials. In 1997 Cheri called itself “The World’s Biggest Sex Mag” at 300 pages. In 1999 Cheri began to include penetration photos and in August 1999 the tagline was changed to “The World’s Hottest Sex Mag."
