This particular brand of fetish magazine gradually emerged as an offshoot of the many broader-based kink/BDSM publications that existed on the outer fringe of the print industry.Photo Bits (1898-1914) was the first British pin-up magazine.However, it soon became infamous for its readers' letters which revealed an obsession with all sorts of fetishes – tightlacing, lingerie, high boots and heels, long gloves, cross-dressing, and so forth.By 1932 the magazine was even banned by the Irish government.But still the spanking went on; my wife said that she intended to teach me a lesson that I wouldn’t soon forget- and believe me- I didn’t!That started our life of Annie being in charge of my discipline and she doesn’t shy away from her duty.I replied that with all the jiggling & bouncing these nearly naked girls did, how could I not stare?
A decade later, Irving Klaw, another New York purveyor of fetish erotica, also began advertising in the magazine.
Published in Oxford, New Jersey with no publisher listed, the 48-page booklet measured inches (110 mm × 140 mm).
It offered a collection of corporal punishment letters and stories involving women being spanked, whipped, and birched.
A few single-issue booklets of spanking photographs date back to Paris in the mid-1930s.
But the evolution of specialized spanking magazines as ongoing, stand-alone periodicals would take several decades to mature.
