Penthouse Letters Keep The ‘O’ In Old Age

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new book is taking fetishes and fantasies to bold – and old – new heights.

Letters to Penthouse XXX: Extreme Sex, Maximum Pleasure (Grand Central), is a compilation of the sexiest, most salacious letters sent to Penthouse magazine, and, even in its 30th edition, the lusty letters still get readers all randy.

Senior managing editor Kathy Cavanaugh says, “There’s not much that makes my eyes pop, but I still see some that make me say, ‘Wow, that’s hot.’ I’m not totally jaded!”

And while the sexy stories are mostly written by middle-aged men and women tackling tawdry topics like threesomes, wife- swapping, and lewd lesbian love affairs, Cavanaugh says she’s looked at letters from a slightly older source.

She recalls publishing entries from an 82-year-old man, who couldn’t type so well and sent his stories on a cassette tape, which Cavanaugh had to transcribe.

She says, “His story was about three pole dancers. Did it really happen? I don’t know. I just think they’re all true. Let everyone have their fantasy!”

Letters to Penthouse is on shelves now.
