High Society is a U.S. pornographic magazine. In addition to hardcore pictorials of nude models, it also has feature articles and occasional celebrity pictorials.

History

High Society was first published in May 1976.

In November of 1981 a spin-off magazine, High Society Live!, was first published, featuring "real people, real stories, real photos". There is a section called "Rich Bitch of the month" which features amateur photos. It also has occasional celebrity photos along with girl solo, girl-girl, boy-girl and group photosets.

One of the first "editors" was Gloria Leonard, an adult film star, who joined the magazine as a figurehead editor in 1976. It was during her editorial reign that 976 pay phone numbers were first used to advertise upcoming magazine issues. It eventually evolved into the very first "phone sex" line.

Although Mr. Ruderman is generally given credit for inventing phone sex lines, former High Society editor Jeff Goodman claims to be the true inventor behind the 976 pay lines. Goodman was fired by Ruderman, supposedly after asking for a share of the early phone sex profits.

High Society has a Pay Per View channel.
