Chic was a pornographic magazine started by Larry Flynt, of Hustler fame in 1976. The first issue was published in November 1976.

In 1979, Flynt went on trial for obscenity charges over eight issues of Hustler and three issues of Chic magazine.[1] In 1984, a Texas woman, Jeannie Braun, successfully sued Chic for publishing a photo of "Ralph the Diving Pig" and her in the magazine. She had contended that the editor had misrepresented Chic as a fashion magazine.[2][3][4][5]
