Via the New York Times:

Ralph Ginzburg, a taboo-busting editor and publisher who helped set off the sexual revolution in the 1960′s with Eros magazine and was imprisoned for sending it through the United States mail in a case decided by the Supreme Court, died yesterday in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. He was 76.

Ginzburg, who begat modern sexuality-pushing purveyors like American Apparel founder Dov Charney — not to mention his moustache — became famous for his eroticism-bent Eros, a “magbook” that employed writers Nat Hentoff, Arthur Herzog and Albert Ellis and at one point published a set of nude Polaroids of Marilyn Monroe.
