End of an era 1978 and it was time to wave good bye to school, including the disco’s and see what the big wide world had to offer. It was also around the time that i became acquainted with alcohol yes the demon drink and what lovely stuff it is as well. Always enjoyed school for the most part, always wanted to learn and made friends with some really great people, a lot i still see and a few that are still my best friends after 36 years. Decided i was undecided about what i wanted to do in the future so college was the path for me. Also joined a local club, mainly a bunch of guys that got together, dressed up, raised money to put on yearly shows, raised a lot of money for charity and consumed an awful lot of alcohol along the way. Still play a small part in that club and have had the best life because of it, primarily because of the diversity of the people involved. It was at this time that my kinky feelings and indeed life changed forever. I was at my best friend’s house, who funny enough still is, when he produced a magazine that he found in his older brothers room. I had never seen anything like it, all my kinky dreams wrap up in one publication. Did not understand the name but it has been a word that would play a large part in my life for the next 30 years. Janus a journal of fetish and cp. I must have read it from cover to cover 10 times and still could not get enough of it. The images, the fiction and the readers’ letters all there in glorious colour for me to soak up and think perhaps i am not that strange at all. This is a professional publication, they don’t produce just 10, there must be thousands of people who have the same feelings.

This first magazine that captured my imagination so much was a very early edition may have even been Mentor. The Photo’s below are from my first memories of seeing the magazine in its new format brought in around 1981.

I would like to give a huge vote of thanks to Jon of the Janus Archive for sending me these original images and being so helpful. There will be a lot more of Janus to come in the coming years.

Anyone interested in the history or the massive archive Janus has please go to:    



  1. Bob, are you in the UK? I've only hear Janus mentioned by people outside of the U.S. but it sounds like it started many a person's fantasy.

  2. Hi there, I'm Bill and I was 18, as of 5 months ago! My Parents could hardly wait to start giving me the cane!and Dad advocated from the first caning it had to be on my bare bottom to be trully effective! They were both present as mum took my trousers and underpants off baring my erect cock, which Mum had seen before whist she had examned my bum to ensure my was OK for caning, even oppening my bum cleft and saying you had better wash again-I felt awful! Then I had to go over their knees in turn to be spanked on my bare bottom! Then the cane followed as I bent down for 6 stingers from each of them, given very sharply! I was crying soon after they started ! I put my hands in the way twice, and tried to get up and pleading for them to stop! I was dancing around assss itfinishe withmyhands clasping my painful, burnng bottom flesh! Oh I was still sobbing when I went to my room! Mum came up shortly after and laid me over me over her knees as she talked to me and put her hand on my burning bottom rubbing it for me! She then had me sit up and saw my dicky ,which she reached for and gave it twiddles as she used to when I was a lot younger, as a game! It had shrink of course but now it had started to rise again!My bu wasvery painful and sore! Bill

  3. Hi,Bill here, Dad had had to go to work in rRankfurt for a while b ut MUm made it plain she would be continuing to give me the cane! She confirmed it by giving me a row for coming home late and on Saturday she caned me ! She invited 3 friends and two Aunties to participateinmy punishment! I protestd and crying wont help you as my eyes filled up! Ourpart time housekeeper fetched me down when they were ready for me! She enjoyed making sure I only had my underpants under my PJ's taking them down as I faced away! I was greeted by cheers and calls as Mum remove my PJ's then my undepanrs followed ,revealing my partly erect dicky!Her friends etc came over ad ave me 4 good slas each on my then bare bottom and legs!They smacked me hard and I was trying to avoid the the smavcks but failed! THem Mum came across with the long swishy rattan cane!She swished it up and down then gave me the first cut onmy bum!It hurt and i creid out and did not stop crying out untl the caning of 12 cuts had been given on my buttocks and thighs ! Ii frantically tried to twist and turn away but did not avoid the cane at all I was shedding tears and clasping my bum when she finished! Tey all came over to see my caned bum and thighs, even slappiing and squeezing my pain wracked bum! Muminsisted on my holdingout my hands for her to use her saort cane 2 on each hand , I cried out and shed more tears wringing my hands in pain, showing my shrunk privates to all, as I faced them! Bill!

  4. Hello D. here, I argued with my Mam ,when she made me sign a new spanking Agreement for 4 years on my 18th birthday! I protestd I would be 22, before it expired !You want an allowance dear, so just sign, darling! Behave, work hard and you will not feel my cane, or tawse too often, on your bare botttom and thighs and don't forget I will punish you in front of family and my friends, to add embarrssment to the punishments! I went to my room as I waitd for her to come up with her new, longer rattan cane for being rude! 1 underessed below the waist and she soon came unp! I had to bend over for the cane and she gave me 8 stinging cuts! I cried out from the pain , from her very sharp strokes across the bare flesh of my buttocks , each cut raising vivid red, really painful weals! I had corner time down in the kitchen wher I was under the watchful eyes of our part time housekeeper who was told to give me hard slaps if I rubbbed my pain wracked bottom! D.

  5. Hello all ,I went to a girls privwte school where th ecane was given during to girls of 18 and I was unlucky to have my birthdayearly inmthe year!So i sufferd the cane all too often in the last few months in school ,as well as at home!In school th caning was given on the bare bottom by the senior miestreses! I remember bein sent to miss Jenkings who seeemed to delight in giving the cane !She was my tutor and she loved undressing me and then made me bend down and then took my knickers down revealing my bare bum and my vagina as she did so! She even comented on my shaved mound oof venus! She caned me slowly, and paused sometimes to look at my bum closly and run her hand over my well marked bum ! At home my parents shared caning and spanking me on my bare bum each time it is awful to know Dad cdn see my private flesh as they still do punish me although I am now 20! Miss Anne.
