A spanking magazine is a commercial erotic or pornographic magazine for adults with spanking fetish related contents. Spanking photographs and artwork have been used to illustrate countless fetish-oriented magazines (on bondage, domination, slave-training, etc.) since the late 1940s. But it is not until the period of the late 1960s to early '70s that stand-alone magazines on this subject began to appear. (...)

The origin of fetish magazines in general goes back to the 1920s with London Life (1920-1960). Published by New Picture Press in London, this was a popular men's magazine with articles, humor,
 short fiction, and modest cheesecake photos of showgirls and film starlets. 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. (...)

Perhaps the most well-known early bondage/fetish magazine with spanking imagery is Bizarre (1946-1959), published in New York by artist John Willie. Bizarre is distinguished by Willie's vivid, realistic artwork and fetish photographs, some of which were purchased from Charles Guyette's burlesque and BDSM equipment store. (...)

By the '70s censorship laws banning these publications from the mainstream marketplace had faded away in the U.S. and much of Europe. Thus, the production of all sorts of fetish lifestyle and spanking magazines went into high gear. The majority of english-language spanking magazines were published in the U.K. prior to the emergence of the American video-influenced spanking market in the 1980s and 1990s. The better-known British magazines of this era include Janus (1971-2007), Roué (c. 1978-1988), Phoenix (1980-1991), Blushes (c. 1980s), and Kane (1982 to present), created by Harrison Marks. (...)

A new wave of fetish magazines emerged in conjunction with the booming home video market of the 1980s. Nearly all of the major underground spanking video producers (London Enterprises, House of Milan, Harmony Concepts, Nu-West/Leda Productions, Shadow Lane, et al.) as well as many smaller companies began publishing their own photo-magazines and illustrated catalogs that included lifestyle features. (...) More ambitious publications such as London's Spank Hard and Shadow Lane's Stand Corrected were glossy, full-size periodicals packed with spanking photos (a mix of color and black & white), articles, and sometimes amateur snapshots from their readers. These lifestyle-oriented magazines usually featured spanking stories (sometimes fan fiction), letters, spanking art, interviews, editorials from industry celebrities (Jacqueline Omerta, Eve Howard, et al.), humor, cartoons, book and video reviews, reader surveys, ads from video producers, and spanking personals.
