Hustler Celebrates 35th Anniversary With Grand Gala

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Larry Flynt sure knows how to make an entrance. Last night, the Hustler founder and publisher arrived to his company’s swanky private party at the Santa Monica airport on his personal plane and was promptly taken into the celebration down the red carpet as a throng of partygoers applauded to honor him.

Last night, Hustler threw a lavish affair to celebrate its flagship magazine’s 35th anniversary. The large, invite-only party attracted scores of VIPs, movers and shakers and plenty of beautiful women to enjoy an evening of cocktails and entertainment.

Hangar 8 at the Santa Monica airport was transformed into “Heaven & Hell” for the night. Half the venue was “Hell,” which had adult performers in various stages of undress, body paint or leather, getting flogged, whipped or locked in cages bathed in red light. On the “Heaven” side, adult performers and models frolicked in white lingerie or angel wings on plush beds playfully wrestling (or writhing, as the case may have been) with each other in white light creating a sexy contrast from the other side of the room.

Sprouting up in the middle of the bar was a huge tree, ostensibly the Tree of Life, while a real-life Adam and Eve perched on a platform tempting each other to eat an apple.

A cool patio area was set up with plush white banquettes and cocktail tables outside for partygoers to catch some fresh air and socialize. A live band kept things hopping inside particularly during its selection of Michael Jackson songs.

The image of Alexis Texas, posed on the cover of Hustler magazine's 35th anniversary issue dominated the hangar's entryway, and other blown up covers were placed throughout the venue.

Inside the spacious hangar, a four-sided bar dominated the middle of the venue while extravagant food stations were placed off to the sides. Guests had their choice of delicacies ranging from steak to pasta and gourmet pizza. To cap it off, chocolate fondue stations stocked with fresh fruit and other goodies satiated even the most hardcore chocolate lover’s sweet tooth.

Joe Francis got in on the action too. Partners with Flynt in asking the federal government for bailout money, Francis was having a great time and was constantly surrounded by super-hot women – you guessed it – showing him their boobs.

Also spotted at the event was MTV’s “The Real World” star Cyrus, Adam & Eve star Kayden Kross, X-Play’s Jeff Mullen and Scott David, adult director Ernest Greene, IVD's Frank K, photographers Suze and Holly Randall, LFP president Michael Klein and director Luc Wylder.

Adult performers spotted cavorting with the crowd included Nina Hartley, Ron Jeremy, Prinzzess, Charlie Laine, Samantha Ryan, Ann Marie Rios, Tom Byron, Louisa Lanewood, Mackenzee Pierce, Missy Stone, Ryder Skye, Alexa Jordan, Brynn Tyler, Riley Evans, Veronica Rayne, Sunny Lane, Ava Rose, Satine Phoenix, Nikki Rhodes, Emy Reyes, Dani Jensen, Krissy Lynn, Brooke Belle, Sindee Jennings, Jayden Cole, Sophie Dee, Leslie Foxx and Savannah Stern.
