Larry Flynt has passed away at his Los Angeles residence at the age of 78.

Flynt was nicknamed the ‘porn king of the United States’ after coming to popularity for founding pornographic magazine Hustler in 1974.

With it, he started an empire in the sex industry and lived through a number of lawsuits, trials, and even an assassination attempt in 1978.

“I realise that if we became more explicit, we could get a larger chunk of the market,” Flynt told the Washington Post. “I felt that men wanted raw sex.”

His life was documented in a 1996 film, starring Woody Harrelson in the role of Flynt.

In 1978, an assassination attempt by the serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin led to Flynt sustaining injuries that would leave him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
