The Janus Special No.2 was published in 1973 and it was a defining moment in the history of the magazine. Up until that point Janus featured a range of different fetishes (Special 1 was devoted to bondage, rubber and leather and Special 3 focused on underwear) but the editorial team were so overwhelmed by the response of readers to this Spanking Special that they published a further three specials on the same theme that year and the focus of the magazine changed forever.
This important original edition is now available as a digital download and even though it is nearly 40 years old it is well worth a read. There are some wonderfully erotic photos of domestic, schoolroom and uniform discipline along with plenty of enjoyable stories and articles. ‘Corporal Punishment – An introductory survey’ isn’t exactly a survey but it’s a fascinating insight into attitudes at the time. Other excellent contributions include ‘The Spanking Twenties’, ‘Scenes of Domestic Discipline’, ‘The Confessions of a Convent Girl’ and ‘Go Upstairs and Take your Knickers Down’. Fifteen pages of readers’ letters take us right back to the 70’s and round out the special.
