Vintage fetish erotica
I have been collecting vintage kinky, fetish, and spanking photography for many years. Unfortunately many original erotic photographs have been destroyed so the photographs that remain are often worn and in need of repair.
I have restored many of the photographs on this site, I hand tinted some very damaged pieces to breath life back into them. I hope both the fetish connoisseurs and the curious will enjoy these delightful images. I wonder if someone is now sitting quietly remembering their adventures and smiling. remembering the thrill of the forbidden and knowing they dared to live their life as they wanted to.
Although all genres of vintage photography and art will find its way to this page, the focus will be fetish art and photography. This page will be ever changing and growing I invite you to write with suggestions, comments , or contributions. --http://home.cuffs.com/sasha [Jan 2005]
The Marquis de Sade's works, including Justine and Juliette are written from an extreme sadistic viewpoint.
Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's novel Venus in Furs (1870) is essentially one long masochistic fantasy, where the male principal character encourages his mistress to mistreat him.
The Story of O (1954) is another classic masochistic novel, this time written by a woman, Pauline Réage. In this novel, the female principal character is kept in a chateau and mistreated by a group of men.
L'Image (1956) is another classic sadomasochistic novel, written by another French woman, Catherine Robbe-Grillet, under the pseudonym Jean de Berg. It was made into a 1975 film, The Image, also known as The Punishment of Anne.
The writer Anne Rice has produced a number of examples of well-written sado-masochistic fiction, including Exit to Eden and Belinda as well as The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty and its sequels, Beauty's Punishment and Beauty's Release.
As of 2003, sado-masochistic themes are now common in mainstream erotic fiction, to the point of cliché.
More literary sado-masochistic fiction includes the works of authors such as
- Laura Antoniou, including the Marketplace series of novels
- Pat Califia's works including Macho Sluts
The novel Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey and its sequels belong both in the fantasy fiction and BDSM fiction genres. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadism_and_masochism_in_fiction [Jul 2004]

Fetishes (1996) - Nick Broomfield [Amazon.com]
Fetishes is a 1996 documentry by Nick Broomfield filmed at Pandora's Box, one of New York City's most luxurious SM/fetish parlours. The film contains interviews with professional dominatrices and their clients including the New York filmmaker Maria Beatty.
The documentary opens with black and white footage from an Irving Klaw film depicting models including Bettie Page wearing fetish attire. Nick Broomfield and his film crew then arrive at Pandora's Box on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue and are given a tour of the facility by Mistress Raven, including the dungeon and the medical room. The rest of the documentary consists of the following eight chapters:
- Rubber fetish
- Wrestling fetish
- Corporal punishment
- Socio-political fetishes
The film was produced in the United Kingdom, and was originally made for HBO. It was released in the United States on DVD (runtime 84 minutes, filmed in colour), and more recently as part of Nick Broomfield's 'Documenting Icons' box set. A full, uncut version with additional archive material is also available in the UK. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fetishes_%28documentary%29 [Apr 2005]
- Deviant Desires: Incredibly Strange Sex - Katherine Gates [Amazon US] [FR] [DE] [UK]
Opening this book is like discovering buried treasure: Every paragraph and photograph is a gem. With the creation of Deviant Desires, author Katharine Gates has not only produced a work of art -- which one would imagine to find in a museum gift shop at triple the price -- but she has also done the world a mitzvah, by shining the light of day into the hidden corners of our darkest sexual desires, and revealing that much of what actually dwells there is childlike innocence, wonder and playfulness. A completely engrossing and refreshing book, written with unflinching candor, lighthearted humor, and a sense of deep respect for these everyday people who indulge in fantastic sex practices. - a reader for amazon.com
A fetish photographer is a photographer who takes photographs of people in fetishistic situations, such as in bondage, or wearing rubber or leather clothing. More extreme fetish photography depicts paraphiliac acts such as urination, enemas, or SM activities.
A bondage photographer is a fetish photographer specialising in depictions of people in bondage.
Depending on your point of view, fetish photography can be fine art, erotica, pornography or perhaps a combination of these.
Once only published in bondage magazines, fetishistic photography is now also published as "art books". The publisher Taschen has been a prominent force in getting fetishistic imagery accepted into the mainstream. Bondage and fetish imagery has also made its way into mainstream pornographic magazines.
The pioneering fetish photographer was arguably John Willie, who published a famous fetishistic magazine, "Bizarre" from 1946 to 1959.

BDSM fashion is typically very revealing fetishistic black leather or metallic plastic or PVC outfits with high-heeled boots and fishnet tights, derived from costumes worn in the BDSM scene.
Fashion designer Malcolm McLaren created many items of BDSM-inspired clothing for the 1970s punk rock scene, in particular bondage trousers that connected the wearer's legs with straps. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BDSM_fashion [Apr 2005]
