A few years ago I started trying to put together a complete collection of the classic femdom publication, Miss Sadie Stern's Monthly. I've not quite achieved my goal of completing that collection yet but the job is almost done. In the process of building that collection I also acquired a number of copies of 'Swish', a publication that I had more or less forgotten about.
Swish holds less appeal for me as the femdom content is negligible but I do love the 70's/80's models (the women, not the guys with the big facial hair). Many of the models who appeared in Swish also appeared in Miss Sadie Stern's Monthly and that is another plus point as far as I am concerned.
My website devoted to Miss Sadie Stern's Monthly has proved to be quite popular and attracts a small but steady stream of visitors, I'm hoping that this site will prove to be equally well received.
I will be making PDF copies of Swish available for sale in the near future, this has been a popular feature at my other site as it enables fans of these publications to (re)build their collections at a minimal cost.
There will always be a considerable amount of free stuff here for people to enjoy and get nostalgic over, this is not a money making enterprise, it is about getting these classic publications the audience they deserve.
Eventually I'd like to have every issue of Swish available but at this early stage I'd be happy to have every cover in the gallery so if anyone can help with scans of covers please get in touch.
Putting together the MSSM site was a bit of a challenge, copies are expensive to buy and sometimes hard to find but I was very lucky to be contacted by other aficionados who were willing to lend me copies of their mags in return for PDF's of copies they needed and things snowballed from there. This site is going to be a bigger challenge as Swish is not something that can be bought/sold on Ebay as they won't allow spanking content. I'm going to be relying on goodwill from other collectors much more if this site is going to bear fruit.
I don't make any profit from doing what I do, scanning a magazine to the quality that I find acceptable takes several hours, I'm sometimes paying £40 to buy a magazine to scan, selling PDF's creates the war chest for future purchases of these great publications and gets them back out there and available to everyone at an affordable price.
UPDATE 21/12/12 I've updated the site today with lot's of 'new' covers, loads more material coming in the next few days so keep checking it out.
UPDATE 17/05/13 There's been loads of new stuff added over the last few days and the collection now runs to around 130 issues, about 40 of these are now available to purchase in PDF format.
If you can help with scans, have mags to sell, have covers or any related material please do get in touch.
