The creator of Hustler and other adult publications (along with at least one video game magazine) is one of the most well-known people in porn. And he seems to be making a power play these days. Last November, his company, LFP, acquired New Frontier Media, the once publicly traded owner of nine adult-themed pay-per-view networks in a surprise bid. (Manwin and Longkloof Limited, the company's previous largest shareholder, were the original bidders.) Some in the industry believe the New Frontier acquisition marked the beginning of a showdown between Manwin and Flynt (and his right hand man, LFP president Michael Klein).
