Bondage Life (magazine)
(Click here for more information on WikiDel Project)
Bondage Life was a bondage magazine produced by Harmony Concepts and was published in the years 1976-2001. Unlike most bondage magazines, it contained substantial amounts of editorial content, and featured articles, readers' letters, and readers' artwork, stories and photography, in addition to professional content.
Harmony's editorial policy specialised in what they described as "love bondage", and can be regarded as an influential publication in the movement of BDSM towards the mainstream.
The pages of Bondage Life were filled with letters "By The People", photos of professional and amateur models, interviews, stories, and "memories". Although it was designed and published as "females in love bondage", in later years it also had a "Bound for Controversy" column that contained pictures of bound males.
Issue number 79 (shown at right) was the next to last issue published, and it was the last issue in which Carl McGuire's famous "Bound for Hollywood" column was printed.
- Besides the "Gallery" below, I have been able to compile a "Table of Contents" for Bondage Life magazines, sorted by issue number. I am also collecting PDF files that I can find on the Internet. I am not sure, at this time, exactly what I plan to do with them, but I will try to keep you updated. If you have just gems, send an e-mail to Robin@SM-201.com and let me know.
A Personal Note from Robin
- The Bondage Life article was deleted from Wikipedia for "Lack of notability" (no comment!)
I have each and every issue of Bondage Life in my 12,000 volume library. I always looked forward to receiving a new issue in the mail, or going to the local books store to buy the latest issue.
