Kinky Times and PlayKinky.com

I am a sceptical man by nature and I drill into everyone that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Too much watching Hustle has taught me that the aim of offering something for nothing, always ends up giving nothing for something.

So I did wonder what the catch was for a kinky “boutique” offering free copies of their glossy magazine – Kinky Times – on Twitter; I couldn’t see it, so I thought I would add to my reading material, and requested a copy; it arrived today.

I can’t say what I was expecting, because I’m not really sure, but it’s a forty page, eighty side, glossy A5 magazine loaded full of articles about kinky subjects and has been produced with high production values; I was a little amazed that this would be free. The first article is a piece on US soft-focus erotic photographers, Constance and Eric which gave me an idea for a SinfulSunday entry, and then a great piece by Valerie Ray including an interview with a professional dominatrix:

I particularly enjoyed a history lesson on erotic fiction: it mirrors, only far more eloquently and completely, what I have been saying to my friends; 50 Shades of Grey is neither original nor special, and purchased one such alternative book as a gift to “educate” a colleague. Kinky Times shares with us a short story, and we are then invited to share some erotica with them:

What follows is some diverting articles on psychology of sex, some facts, an article on health and then some photographic reviews of their products. Some of the photographs by Katharina Poblotski were fantasticly erotic and delightful; I won’t dare reproduce them here, but the pictures are divine! She is very talented and the models so very erotic.

The magazine ends with some kinky cocktail recipes and some descriptions of some kinky hotels in the UK.

So … in conclusion, it was a great read; full of diverse and interesting articles written in short chunks that held my attention throughout, and a large helping of sexy photographs. I cannot believe that it is free; the quality of the paper, material and cover is exceptional.

And the “something for nothing” pile gets that bit bigger as Kinky Times readers get a big discount from their PlayKinky.com order too.

Details of Kinky Times can be found here with many of the articles due to appear on the PlayKinky website. You can get your free copy of the Kinky Times by emailing PlayKinky.

PlayKinky say that the magazine is free because it is their way of welcoming people and demonstrating what they stand for, and although PlayKinky is an online shop they say that it is their aim to create a great experience for their customers – with related features, beautiful photography and hopefully a lovely shopping experience. Everything they sell is hand picked and high quality, with prices to suit all budgets.
