American Art Parliament Magazines


After a well-established career as an illustrator and art director, Milton Luros left the East Coast and came out to California in the late 1950s.  Once out in Los Angeles, Luros cooked up a variety of uniquely quirky, but very well-produced mens periodicals -- thick glossy pages with crisp photography of vaguely-fetishistic nudes.  They were a smash.  Leaving Hefner and his competitors to duke it out for newsstand dominence, Luros found distribution exclusively through liquor stores, smoke shops and other primordially male venues.  In those dank dens of manliness, his magazines sold like hotcakes with syrup.  Building upon their success, he linked up with nudist Mag veterans Stan Sohler and Ed Lange to form SUN-ERA, which quickly became a leading force in Nudist Mags, pushing the line between the legal diplay of nudists to the legal display of housewives, students, and models who liked to be naked as a jaybird!  

After establishing solid relationships with retailers, Luros set up the periodical distribution network that would be key to his empire-building success, PARLIAMENT NEWS distributors.  Once the pipeline had been built, it was only a question of how to fill it and keep it flowing and here Luros was more than able.  Truly relishing the human form for all its aesthetic wonder was only one aspect of Milton Luros strengths as a publisher.  He was committed to producing magazines of superior quality both in form as well as content -- as evidenced by the bright glossy paper stock which preserves his sumptuous quirky photo spreads to the present day.

The last chapter of the Parliament magazine empire introduces a new character, Reuben Sturman, the Cleveland-based porn emporer whose distribution domain extended from Detroit to Denmark.  For years throughout the 1960s, Sturman had been interested in partnering or simply buying out Luros' magazine production/distribution operations (to conquer the West coast of America), but his advances were consistantly rebuffed.  When Federal prosecutors were hounding Luros in the early 1970s, Luros finally relented and sold Parliament News to Sturman, and over the next several years, Parliament magazines and Eros-Goldstripe magazines intermingled titles, text, photographs and editorial content.  Sad to say, the genuine passion for eros as art that burned in Milton Luros (and made his productions unique) was sorely lacking in the post-Luros Parliament magazines and the adult entertainment world became a less interesting place with his departure.

For an absolutely enthralling journey into the world of Milton Luros, Parliament Mangazines and Brandon House books, please check out Stephen J. Gertz' extensive work EVERYBODY LOVES MILTON: RABBI PORN.

How to order

This is a self-made website and while it might be extensive, it is not super-sophisticated.  The little buy icon icon takes you to a generic order form where you can type in the author, title, price, and indicate whether you would like to send me a check, money order or credit card payment.  I will confirm availability via e-mail, and once I've received payment, I'll ship the book.  If you have questions,  please don't hesitate to ask  via email.

Condition Grades

There's a standard bookseller vocabulary, with terms like Fine, Very Good, Good and Poor to assess condition (to see these terms defined, click on the link above).  Most of my books are in Very Good or better condition, and I tend to overemphasize their flaws so that any surprise is a pleasant one.  Feel free to ask questions, and if the book isn't in the condition described, you may return it for a full refund. 

Wants Lists

If I don't have the book you seek in stock, I will retain your book search in my wants files and email you when I do have a copy for sale. If you don't hear back from me immediately, that probably means I don't have a copy right now.  But fear not,  I keep extensive files and never stop looking....  so send me your request;  you've got nothing to lose!

Not listed?
Not everything is listed on-line. Let me know what you're looking for.
