  1. Hmm, how many contemporary political obstacles will get in the way of enjoying some guilty entertainment watching this show, the seventies porn scene opened up the publishing world to a variety of sexual exploitation and made famous a number of alpha male editors of predominantly men’s magazines, with Playboy and Penthouse being the best known. Minx would need to be suitably racy to get any meaningful ratings, perhaps Vida and Fleabag set the benchmark for this type of show.
