This magazine is responsible for the landmark Supreme Court decision that put it’s publisher, Ralph Ginzburg in jail and defined obscenity. Eros magazine was first published on Valentine’s Day of 1962 by Ralph Ginzberg. A lavishly produced quarterly bound in hard covers, only 4 issues of Eros were produced. In December of 1963, Ginzberg was sentenced to serve 5 years for sending “obscene” literature through the mail. The trial and subsequent appeals dragged on for another 10 years. On February 17th of 1972, Ginzberg began serving a five-year sentence at the Lewisburg Penitentiary in Pennsylvania. He was paroled eight months later.
