Von Teese appeared on a number of fetish magazine covers, including Bizarre and Marquis. It was around this time when she appeared on the cover of Midori's book, The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage. Von Teese was featured in Playboy in 1999, 2001, and 2002, with a cover-featured pictorial in 2002. The German metal band Atrocity chose her as the cover model for their 2008 album, Werk 80 II. She has stated in print, "I love fetish for its powers of transformation and also for its beauty." Among her heroes of vintage fetish history are John Willie, Bettie Page, and Irving Klaw. Von Teese is best known for her burlesque routines and is frequently dubbed the "Queen of Burlesque" in the press.

Eventually, he was arrested, his magazines and materials confiscated, and brought to trial. This led to the demise of the magazine in 1959. However, starting in 1960, Burtman (under a different imprint) would go on to publish many more fetish magazines that were nearly identical to Exotique such as New Exotique, Masque, Connoisseur, Bizarre Life, High Heels, Unique World, Corporal (a pioneering spanking-fetish magazine) and others well into the 1970s. New York photographer Irving Klaw also published illustrated adventure/bondage serials by fetish artists Eric Stanton, Gene Bilbrew, Adolfo Ruiz and others.

Some of the clothes seen in The Avengers were designed at the studio of John Sutcliffe, who published the AtomAge fetish magazine. Series scriptwriter Dennis Spooner said that the series would frequently feature Steed visiting busy public places such as the main airport in London without anyone else present in the scene. "'Can't you afford extras?' they'd ask. Well, it wasn't like that. It's just that Steed had to be alone to be accepted. Put him in a crowd and he sticks out like a sore thumb! Let's face it, with normal people he's weird. The trick to making him acceptable is never to show him in a normal world, just fighting villains who are odder than he is!"

Bara (genre)

baragay mangabara manga
While erotic art accompanied by text had previously appeared in gay interest magazines – notably in the private circulation magazines Adonis (magazine) (1952) and Bara (1964), the former of which was the first gay magazine in Japan – Bara-Komi was the first magazine to publish gay manga exclusively. Despite its relatively recent emergence as an art form, gay manga belongs to a history of homosexuality in Japanese visual art dating back to shunga of the Edo period. Gengoroh Tagame cites the fetish magazine Fuzokukitan (1960-1974), which published gay content alongside straight and lesbian content, as a major influence on gay manga.

Tana Louise

She contributed regularly to the fetish magazine Exotique, as both a columnist and model, she and even married the owner of the magazine, Leonard Burtman. Among the photographers that she worked with was Irving Klaw. In 1950, she was accused of hitting fellow stripper, Emerald Forrest, over the head with a club. When asked of the charges, Louise responded: "T'ain't so". By the late 1950s, her marriage to Burtman had begun to deteriorate, and they divorced. Soon after, she left the magazine and disappeared from the public eye. She was one of the most famous fetish models of her day, but, as time went on, she was overshadowed by her peer, Bettie Page.

Sanshi Funayama

Funayama's artwork first appeared in the early 1960s in Fuzokukitan, a fetish magazine that published gay content alongside straight and lesbian content. He later contributed to Bara, a private circulation gay magazine, and Barazoku, the first commercially-published gay magazine in Japan. From the 1970s until the late 1990s, Funayama disappeared from public life, and did not publish or circulate art for over three decades. In 1999, he resurfaced to submit two illustrations to the magazine G-men, with a promise to submit additional works. No further works were submitted by Funayama which, combined with his presumed advanced age, led his contemporaries to assume he had died.

Tatsuji Okawa

Okawa was nearly 60 years old when his career as an erotic artist began in earnest, when he was published in a 1964 issue of Fuzokukitan, a fetish magazine that published gay content alongside straight and lesbian content. He would later be published in the magazine Barazoku. Okawa quit illustration in the 1970s, and gave his artist materials to Mamiya Hiroshi, an editor at Fuzokukitan. Upon his death in 1994, his works were acquired by Hiroshi and Bungaku Itō, the founding editor of Barazoku. The writer Yukio Mishima was a fan of Okawa's, and reportedly commissioned Okawa to draw a portrait of Mishima being tortured. * Homosexuality in Japan
