The appearance of fetish magazines focusing on the African-American woman was surprisingly long in coming.
Black BDSM magazines and newsletters began publishing in the 70's and continued for many years. Black Amazon Digest, Black Mistress Review, Obeah and Black Leather In Color are a few of the more recognizable publications. Most of the early magazines were used primarily by White males searching for Black female mistresses. Black Leather in Color was the first fetish magazine created specifically for people of color by people of color. Today most Black BDSM newsletters have been replaced by online versions or ezines.
