Half the fun of reading these old men's magazines are the amazing ads.  In the back of every one of these rags, from Rogue to Cavalier, were tons of little adult oriented advertisements.  It's just like in comic books, but instead of Sea Monkeys and X-Ray Specs, you've got stag films and dirty records.

You might wonder while looking at these, "Who in their right mind would pay money for this junk?"  But you need to remember that this is decades before the internet, VHS, Cinemax, DVDs, or Pay Per View. In fact, most towns would never dream of showing a movie with even a hint of skin, and strip clubs were mostly for the big cities.  So, what was a guy to do if he got a hankering for something not-so-family-friendly?  That's right.  He bought a magazine.... and, if the mood struck him, he'd drop an envelope in the mailbox and order up a stag film for his viewing pleasure.

So, for your viewing pleasure, I've ordered up a bunch of ads from old men's mags. Enjoy.
