TBT: Bound and Gagged magazine

Those of us who were around before the Internet will no doubt remember Bound and gagged magazine.

Bound and Gagged magazineIn its glory days, it was by far the best resource for anyone into male bondage of any kind. Not only were the stories and photographs stimulating, but the personal ads allowed like-minded men to connect with one another. I remember watching the mailbox for each new issue, which I always read from cover to cover. This magazine certainly shaped my own coming out into bondage, and it facilitated meetings with many others, including my first kinky relationship.

Does anybody remember Drummer magazine? It was hot as fuck.



Before the Internet, there was an extensive selection of scene-related publications, mainly published in the 1970s to the 1990s. These magazines included DungeonMaster, Checkmate, Metropolitan Slave, Manhood Rituals, MACH, Manifest Reader (my personal favorite!), the Zeus Inferno albums and other Zeus one-offs, most of Larry Townsend series, the Robert Payne series — and of course the crowning achievement of them all — Drummer!

And then came Bound and Gagged magazine — and my whole life changed because I knew I had to move to New York City.
