RICHMOND HILLS, N.Y. – Screw magazine founder Al Goldstein, who only a couple years ago was running the decades-old magazine and living in a $2 million dollar townhouse, is now homeless, spending his nights sleeping in the backseat of a friend’s car, at homeless shelters or, for three nights this week, on the floor of his in-laws’ Long Island, N.Y., home.
“The wives have taken the money,” he said. “Every wife walked away with money and my testicles. Right now I’m a he-she. I don’t even have balls or a dick. It’s a good thing I don’t have AIDS. I am a shell of what I used to be. What’s sad is, I have good mind, I know the porn business, and I really wanna work. Thirty-five years of harassment and it hasn’t stopped. I’m Lenny Bruce.”
