Power Exchange Magazine failed for a couple of reasons. First, very few people subscribed; second, it was exhausting work keeping people on deadline and getting images to go along with some of the articles. I just couldn’t keep it up.

So we (and I really can’t remember how Herbert fit in with all this) decided to change from magazine format to “collected essays” on a focused topic. We selected the series name: Power Exchange Books’ Resource Series and I began contacting people who had signed up at conferences saying they would like to write for me.

The idea was to have a collection of 9-10 authors submitting 3,500-word essays on a single topic of interest to BDSM or Leather folk to create a book of about 100 pages. The series is about the “why” of what we do, not the “how.” Book titles include:

  • Playing with Disabilities

  • The Art of Slavery

  • Protocols: A Variety of Views

  • Rope, Bondage, and Power

  • Age Play

A word about Rope, Bondage, and Power. Lee Harrington volunteered to be the issue coordinator for this and his “call for writers” among the highest reaches of the rope world was met with resounding success. Rather than 9-10 authors, Lee produced 19 qualified authors. The only notable exceptions were Midori, Jay Wiseman, Lochi, and Leon from Chicago. This book became reasonably popular among rope enthusiasts.

Power Exchange Magazine

At the very beginning of 2007, Herbert, who was always pushing for new projects, got me to agree to be the managing editor of “Power Exchange Magazine.” Over the course of the next ten months, we produced nine issues before I called it quits from exhaustion. Here’s the list of issue themes:

  • Master/slave Relations — male Master

  • Master/slave Relations — female Master

  • Bootblacking

  • FemDomme

  • Pony Play

  • Polyamory

  • Daddy/boy

  • Leather Spirituality

  • Pup/Trainer

As the magazine was failing to catch on, I made a marketing decision to transform Power Exchange Magazine and into a small book format. This series, Power Exchange Books’ Resource Series, are 100-page books on focused topics of interest to BDSM or Leather folk. The series is about the “why” of what we do, not the “how.” Book titles include:

  • Playing with Disabilities

  • The Art of Slavery

  • Protocols: A Variety of Views

  • Rope, Bondage, and Power

  • Age Play
