Fetish magazine

A fetish magazine is a type of magazine originating in the 1960s which is devoted to sexual fetishism. The content is generally aimed at being erotic rather than pornographic. Much of the content in fetish magazines is baffling to people who do not share the particular fetishes discussed and depicted.

An early study, The Undergrowth of Literature by Gillian Freeman (1967), concluded that such magazines provide a catharsis for those whose sexual needs are otherwise unsatisfied:[1] she identified rubberwear magazines as the most popular at the time.[2]
