The man in charge of the Hustler pornographer empire has announced he will be in Chicago for the September 7 opening of the Hustler Hollywood store in downtown Chicago.

The theme store will be located at 3161 N. Broadway. Flynt is scheduled to appear at the store from 7 to 9 p.m. In addition to christening the store with his presence, he will also be signing copies of his new book “One Nation Under Sex.”

According to Chicago media reports, there is no way for anyone to RSVP for the event. It will be a first come, first serve basis for fans who are interested in meeting the publishing mogul. The first people in line will end up with Hustler gift bags.

The Hustler Hollywood stores are adult-themed stores opening in cities across the country. The stores sell sex toys and other adult items, including videos and magazines. The cities where the stores will be opened include Chicago, Minneapolis, Cincinnati and Columbus.

Larry Flynt is known for having very public battles in favor of the First Amendment. His struggles against those who tried to get his magazine shut down were chronicled in the critically-lauded film “The People vs. Larry Flynt.” In the movie the actor Woody Harrelson played Flynt and received an Academy Award nomination.

Flynt has courted controversy for years. He offended the religious right when he made fun of Reverend Jerry Falwell. Flynt ran an ad in the magazine that suggested Falwell’s first sexual encounter was with his mother.

In 1978 Flynt was paralyzed from the waist down in an assassination attempt. Many years later the white supremacist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin confessed to the shooting. He stated he did it because he was angry over photos showing African American men and women in sexual acts with white men and women.
