Forum magazine

Post by plasphil » August 31st, 2017, 10:36 am

I recently found an image of the cover of one of the Forum magazines but sadly can't find it again. It was a 'top shelf' A5 size publication which surprisingly was sold in high street newsagents in the UK in the seventies. I never bought one myself, honest!, but read a number of copies that a work colleague kept in his office. What I found exciting was some of it dealt with fetishes rather than straight forward porn, nudes, sex etc.

Rainwear, especially rubber, featured regularly and one story that comes to mind was about a woman who liked to be tied up in a rubber mackintosh while her husband was out. She would be sat in the hallway in full view of the front door should anyone look through the letterbox, guess that's the thrill of it.

I can find little about it on the www, not to be confused with a current magazine of the same name! Does anyone else remember it?

Phil.

I,too, remember it well. An offshoot from the Forum section of Penthouse magazine. It published an article on rubber/mackintosh enthusiasm in the early '70's which I kept for a long time but lent to someone who never returned it.

Oh yes, I loved this magazine as it dealt in words rather than pictures...so much better for the imagination.
I also remember a lot of articles covered fetishes which were exciting to read and also fueled my own imagination.
mmmmmmmmmmmm those were the days.
There was also a similar magazine called eros does anyone remember that?

Confession... I once contributed to that magazine.
Though not about rainwear fun, which I'd not discovered, at the time.

It was actually an article about bukkake - which I still enjoy today (occasionally combined with rainwear).

I remember Forum magazine, it was a handy size which you could quickly stuff in your pocket after the initial embarrassment of taking it to the counter in the newsagent. I remember two articles which briefly mentioned rainwear. The first was written by a woman who earned extra cash by entertaining gentlemen at home; she stated that she didn't do anal as it was too painful but she didn't mind being discovered naked under a black plastic mac. The second was about a couple who had rented a holiday cottage and one night they saw some cows in the garden. It was raining and there were plastic macs and wellies in the hall of the cottage and they put them on to go outside to shoo away the cows. They ended up having sex outside in the plastic macs and wellies. She continued by saying that, from then on, whenever the plastic macs went on she knew she was in for a very sexy session.

A few years ago, I sold my collection of Shiny and Dressing For Pleasure magazines and I threw the Forum magazines in for good measure.

Aaaah, happy days.

I remember about 1972 they did a special with a woman in total enclosure leather on the cover, alledged to be a well-known actress.
