Cherry Red Exclusive: The Top 10 Most Popular Janus Spanking Magazine Issues

We here at CRR recently asked the folks over at Janus Magazine [check out their newly revamped site at Janus World Wide] which Janus issues were their best-selling and most popular all-time.  And they sent me this intriguing Top 10 [actually top 11] list you see below, including some beautiful images of these truly classic, understated covers. [Check out a recently cherry red interview with Janus on this blog here.]

Janus  19

janus spanking magazine

A schoolgirl Super Special Issue. This magazine, printed in 1983, has become a collectors “must have” and was sold out within a few weeks of it being launched. The main feature is Polly’s Punishment that is backed up with evocative drawings by Paula Meadows, a letter regarding private education in Glasgow and a photo story of a schoolgirl screen test.

Exclusive Interview: Behind the Scenes with Janus Publications

janus spanking magazine

After 40 years of publishing gorgeous cherry redness, the venerable spanking magazine Janus has recently re-launched their website with the wonderfully designed Janus World Wide, which features digital editions, web exclusives, forums and more.

CRR got the scoop on this spanktastic venture with Roy Tersley, who has been working on the revamped Janus site and the massive task of transforming four decades of spanktasticness to digital formats.

Thank you Roy for taking the time to chat with the Cherry Red Report. Can you give us a brief backgrounder on the history of Janus?

It would be a pleasure. The history of Janus is, of course, very lengthy as it was established over 40 years ago. We will be documenting the full history over time covering the first shop in Victoria, the move to Green Court and its final resting place in Old Compton Street.

Janus has a fresh new look...

There have been many contributors and several very distinguished editors. All of this occurred under the watchful eye of Gordon Sergeant who sadly passed away a year ago. There is an excellent article to be found on Janus at this site Here.

What sparked the move to relaunch Janus World Wide?

The main “driver” for putting Janus (and its associated publications) on-line was that the Janus shop in Old Compton Street closed down. This was with much regret and sadness, but it was becoming increasingly challenging to retain a presence on the “high street.”

janus spanking magazineOnce this decision was taken, we carried out a full review and, with great encouragement from the spanking community, we decided that we should embrace the Internet and put Janus online.

Having made that decision, we then thought about what people would like to see and how we could provide a site that retained the Janus pursuit of “quality” as well as providing unique and a different approach to the global community.

And what was the conclusion ?

The conclusion we reached was probably the obvious one. The first focus is to put all the printed Janus magazines on line for people to be able to download electronically.

We have noticed that this is proving to be very popular as it has opened up a global Continue reading “Exclusive Interview: Behind the Scenes with Janus Publications”

Goth Spank; And Cherry Red Spanking News

What’s up my spanky peeps.  So I recently stumbled across this intriguing, artsy spanko image today and wanted to share it, as I think it’s quite unusual and evocative and gothic, so to speak. [I’m not clear who the photographer is….]

In other cherrytastic news, the CRR editorial crew has an interview with fetish star and spanking model Missy Rhodes [pictured below], of Spanked Sweeties fame, in the works. [Sweeties is also accessible via the better valued multi-site Clare Pass.]  Anyway, here’s a yummy gallery to tide you over. And another hawt one Here.  And I do luv this piccy below:

Missy Rhodes learns that Father knows best

Also, adult star Teagan [or Tegan] Summers plays Missy’s sister in the scene, which is kewl. Here’s a gallery of Tegan getting spanked. In jean-shorts. Hurrah!

The unstoppable Kitty, of Kitty’s Exotic Paddles fame, purveyors of gorgeous spanking implements, is now offering paddles featuring some of her custom painting work, as seen below.  How cool is that?

This is a must see, esp. if you dig schoolgirls and pj’s and smouldering bottoms. Adult star Tom Byron definitely knows how to get his butt-warming spank on, as evidenced in Shadow Lane’s recent sizzler Bad Girls.

This film stars two highly renowned and terribly spankable spankees: Kat. St. James and Sarah Gregory, playing now at CherryRedMovies. In one scene, he’s a firm teacher and the second one a traditional Dad. Now that’s multitasking.

Pioneering spanking producers Janus have re-launched their brand with a shiny new site over at Janus World Wide. Def. check it out.  They’ve been around for 40 years(!) so they know their spanking. The site has a forum, classified section, digital versions of their famed magazine, and more cherry red goodness.

In spanking art news, a talented spanko by the name of Ian contacted this blog and informed us: “I am starting up a new ‘e-magazine’ of my spanking artwork, with the central feature being a serialized graphic story, ‘Reform School’  [sample panel below].  Each issue will have 12 pages with 3 pages of the graphic story, sent fortnightly to subscribers’ e-mail addresses.”  If you’d like more info, please contact Ian directly at ianhamilton96 [at] hotmail [dot] com.


For those into the male end of the spanking spectrum, I updated my other blog Spanking4Men with a classic, eye-catching spanking comic, featuring The Punisher tanning the hide of a street punk.

Over at the always intriguing Spanked in Uniform, we have a butt-blazing medical scene in which Dr. Mike, one of the hardest working spankers in the spank business, gets his spank on with a misbehaving nurse — pictured below is Dr. Mike and the gorgeous Monique.
