Vintage photos, old memories
I am sure that for many of you, your spanking fetish started similar to mine. You were young, the thoughts of spanking excited you, but you did not fully understand what it was or why you were attracted to it. For me, what made it easier was the initial knowledge that others might feel the same way. What brought this to my attention was print media. Around the 5th grade or so, I discovered where my dad kept his Playboy and Penthouse magazines. Like any boy, I was excited by all of the pictures of naked girls, but I quickly found myself drawn to the “Forum” section of Penthouse, which on occasion included spanking type “true” experiences. Very quickly after that, whenever a new magazine would show up, I would read through the forum section before ever looking at the pictures. Then, one day, my eyes saw a glorious sight, tucked away in an obscure section of Penthouse, and it was this picture:
Well, I would say that this was the day that the pervert was born in me and I knew that I needed to explore spanking to its very fullest. It was clear from this single picture that I was not alone. Not only that, this picture appeared to be very old, meaning that people must have felt this way for a very long time. So clearly I was not alone, and I guessed that for generation’s people must have felt the same as I did. It was not easy to find spanking pictures in the mid 70’s, but I assure you, I looked everywhere I could. I would say my next experience with finding any sort of spanking content had to have been a couple of early Janus photos. Once again, they were included in some other adult publication, but this really set the tone for my fetish. I really liked the single pic, no story, no sequence of photos, just one picture that forced you to tell the story on your mind. And believe me, I told the story in my head often, and each time it was a little different. It was photos such as this one, which really kept my imagination running wild.
I really wish that there was more of a market for just spanking pictures. I really enjoy taking pics that tell a story and sort of pay tribute to my original discoveries when it came to spanking media. In today’s world of the Internet, streaming videos, DVD’s, etc, I think some of the art of spanking has been lost. We now need to see red butts, real tears, hard spanking, and things that leave very little for the imagination. On occasion, I like to visit the older photos that still create my original sort of thoughts as they did the day I first discovered those three lovely young ladies baring their bottom for the ruler. Some of my favorites will always be some of the early photos taken by Ed Lee at Nu-West. For me, they bring about the image of the strict 50’s motherly figure who would never hesitate to bare your bottom for a long session with the hairbrush. I think there is also a sense of innocence. It seemed a time when you knew if you acted up that your bottom would be blistered. At least for me, the pictures demonstrate a proper spanking for a well deserved offense. I do not seem them as overtly sexual, I love the long dresses and the stern looks. We have all seen them before, the classic Debbie pics practically have a cult following, but these are some of my all time favorites.

Since I am feeling a bit nostalgic, I decided to play with a few of my own images that I have taken over the years. I wanted to try and give the old look from a Janus magazine and tried to pick pictures that have the same feel…ones that it is up to you to tell the story, or in which the story is clear from a single glimpse. Alright, that is a long enough stroll down memory lane, here are the pics:
I've never posted here before, but I do check this blog very often. I really like what you've written with this particular post. The art and skill of a wonderfully taken spanking photograph has been somewhat lost due to the advent of poorly made home spanking videos. I would assume that for many (certainly for me) it was in fact pictures that actually ignited the passion of spanking within us. When anyone first starts looking for spanking content, it's the pictures that capture us first. Later on, we eventually see the videos and develop our interest more. But, my point is, a good spanking picture is simply beautiful and can grip you in a way a video never will.
I applaud both your efforts and contributions to the spanking community over the years. I have no doubt that right now, somewhere, a young spanko is just discovering our world, and in ten years they will probably look back on you, as you have on Janus and Ed Lee.
Keep it up!
Can you say what they are from?
Also in 7os there was a glossy color mag called Corporal, and like you say the Penthouse stuff.
