Aaaah, nostalgia ain't what it used to be. Working in Brum city centre in the mid 80s, I was on the edge of the diving board on punting. I used to walk past a little newsagent's kiosk every morning and my eyes would dwell on the Phoenix Magazine. £5 at the time...one day after lurking til the coast was clear, as you do, I bought one. Straight in the work's toilet to read and enter a whole new world. Landlines without exception, minges were de rigeur and OWO as rare as dinosaur shit. First punt was with a lady in Carver Street in the Jewellery Quarter who offered " obedience training". What I got was the best part of an hour's mild dom, RO and sex with a mature, attractive lady for £30. Hooked? you bet, I booked in with another girl out of the magazine round the corner straight after!!
