    I guess producing too many inches isn't as much of an issue with them?

    That's the natural progression of things, right? Lots of sex, then marriage.

    I had a little flirtation with Penthouse for an assistant managing editor job about five years ago. There wasn't much foreplay; we got right to the money shot ... uh, salary discussion ... after about 10 minutes. And then we both knew it was going to be a one-night stand ... uh, not even that. I was shocked by how little it was. I was polite, even gracious. But my thinking is, you call that little thing a salary? Just how do you expect to fill an .. uh ... opening ... with that?

    Actually, the Penthouse person I spoke with was female. She was nice and I appreciated that we got right to it instead of wasting each other's time. Can't remember, but I think she was the managing editor. I applied without much expectation and was astonished when she called me. Was more astonished by what the job paid, especially in NYC.
