Glendora, California: R.F.M., . 11” x 8½”. Stapled thin card wrappers. pp. 40. Very good plus: minimal wear; some toning to wrappers; small crease to lower outer corner of leaves.
This is a catalog for R.F.M., a BDSM mail order company and publishing house. According to the text, RFM made some of the products himself and offered to find anything a customer needed that wasn't already in the catalog. Approximately 200 items are shown in exceptionally graphic drawings as well as around 30 photographic images. Included for purchase were various genital torture implements, harnesses, hoods, gags, paddles, whips and other tools. The catalog also offered bottles of something called “Locker Room, The Aroma of Men” as well as a number of books and still photos.
Per OCLC records, R.F.M. Products issued at least eleven other publications between 1975 and 1980. Based on an advertisement in Drummer 58,R.F.M. provided “everything for the S and M COMMUNITY from large racks to small leather toys, books, novelties, etc.” This book and its publisher may have been the work of a Roger Fraum (which is possibly a pseudonym) who we know issued a newsletter entitled “R.F.M.” in 1977.
OCLC locates two copies of various editions.
