The premier issue of this New York pornzine, under the editorial direction of Mark Sherwood, published at a moment when the distribution of pornography was about to enter the mainstream, including articles of prurient interest, including some with violence and sexual deviance, as well as women (and one man) in erotic poses in various states of undress. Although most of the contents are directed toward a straight audience, the volume contains some LGBT content. As of June 2020, KVK and OCLC locate only one holding in North America.
