Is there anyone else here that reminds MR. magazine. It was where I first learned there was such a thing as a spanking community. those who know bear with me. For newbies, MR was an "adult" mag that always ran letters to the editor about spanking that was published back in the 60s and 70s. It usually had one or two letters per month, usually balanced between the viewpoint of spankera nd spankee. It was heavily m/f, lots of wives and daughters stuff, though did have the other pairings at times. heavy on discipline aspect, and certainly the male dom theme seems a little dated. It also had a column called Wild wide World or something that often contained an alleged news item pertaining to spanking, and often the models featured in photo spreads would make some reference to spanking. Just curious if there is anyone else out there who remembers MR
That was a great magazine because of those letters. I still remember many of them very well. They also had a lot of fiction stoires that either pertained to spanking or had a spanking in them. I think the editor of that mag must have been a spanko for sure. I used to look forward to it every month, and would drive way out to a convience store on the other side of town so I could buy one without having to worry about seeing someone I knew.
And beside MR, I used to look forward to Penthouse when it first came out. They had a section entitled Pain and Pleasure in their letters to the editor. They kind of faded out as time went by.
But in those early days it was a very good source for my monthly spanking fix. And they also had a monthly cartoon feature at the back of the mag entitled "Wicked Wanda." There were several real nice spanking pictures in those. I remember a color picture of her side kick, Candyfloss, over a man's knee with her bare bottom being strapped with a doubled up belt. Across her bare bottom were very realistic looking pink bands, pretty shocking stuff for that time.
The August '73 issue also had a great picture. Wanda's all female army was gathered in formation. They were wearing green, one piece uniforms with short skirts that left the lower half of their bottoms exposed. They also had on caps and knee high, spiked boots. The caption said that the troops were gathered for their disciplinary ritual that was very much looked forward to. Wanda was on a stage standing behind a girl that was bending over with her hands on knees and her bare bottom invitingly displayed. Candyfloss held a pillow out to Wanda with a viscious looking riding crop on it. There was another girl walking away from the stage with smile on her face and three pink stripes visible on bottom. Then there was a line of troops awaiting there turn with unmarked fannies. But there was one girl in the line that had three stripes on her's. The girl next to her was whipering, "Hey! No fair sneaking back in line."
There was another time when there was a picture of Wanda addressing her troops. She was congratulating them on a job well done and flexing a riding crop. She said they had really earned their stripes this time.
But thinking back to the days of MR, Penthouse, even very early Playboy letters it always reminds me of what it was like to be a spanko in the days before the internet.
I Loved Mr. Magazine! I've written about this before, but the recap version is, I knew I was into spanking or that it excited or interested me more than other kids, from when I was little, very little. But, always thought it was just me.
Then, I was 15, and babysitting. Now, the other thing was I was a Horrible little snoop! After the kids were in bed, went browsing through the parents bedroom, into everything! (which is why I keep all my hardcopy material and toys locked up today!)
And I found a Huge stash of Mr. magazines, Penthouse, and Penthouse variations, and all those wonderful wonderful spanking letters... and found out I wasn't alone. I loved them all, the Mf, MF, Ff, and FF variations...
Indeed I do remember Mr. magazine. I think this was the first time I read about a spanking adventure. What a turn on. Husband decides to spice up his sex life by spanking his willing wife and several sessions later his daughter gets into the act by asking to watch and then retreating to masturbate. Later on husband spanks wife and daughters bare behinds. And even later wife and daughter spank husband's bared bottom. I particularly remember wife saying to daughter go ahead and grab it like a handle, referring to his obviously engorged member. Kinda kinky and incestuous, but a fun fantasy.
The early days of Penthouse always seemed to provide more realistic stories about spanking than todays Variations or Forum magazines.
I sought out Mr. magazine whenever it appeared on the stand. I can't remember when I first discovered it, but it must have been in the early 60's. It was the only girlie magazine that promoted spanking. Their letters seemed contrived, as they tended to have a lot of similarity from issue to issue. Still, they were great turn ons. They also ran features about spanking, in addition to the letters. Before the Internet we were grateful for whatever we could find - and Mr. magazine helped us know we weren't alone out there.
I discovered Mr. magazine when I was a freshman in college. A guy in the dorm room next to me had it. Until that time I thought I was the only perosn in the world who was turned on by spanking. I probably bought every issue published after that, mostly for the letters. They also had a series on wife swapping every month. Some of those articles made references to spanking. I recently saw some of the Mr. letters on a site, I think is called spanking digest
