Pump it up when you don't really need it.
Out in the fashion show,
down in the bargain bin,
you put your passion out
under the pressure pin.
Fall into submission,
No use wishing now for any other sin.
--Elvis Costello, "Pump It Up"
In continued celebration of National Inflatable Week, I bring you another classic inflatable gem from Atomage Bondage Supplement, this time from issue no. 5.
And since I was too busy to post for Wednesday's festivities, here's a pic from Atomage Bondage Supplement No.2 and below that a letter to the editor. No date, but based on the advertisements in the mag, I'm guessing its year of publication is 1977.
I was interested to see something in the first Bondage Supplement that I don't think I have ever previously spotted in any other magazine and I have never seen written up in even in the psychology books. Fascinated by the photograph I went right through in the hope of finding a detailed article but no luck. I hope you are going to give more space to the subject in future issues.
I am referring, of course, to that rarest form of out interest -- PNEUMOBONDAGE or 'pneumatic enclosure' as you called it on pages 12 and 13. This is the most satisfying form of total enclosure, giving an astonishing feeling of relaxation impossible with other forms. I was delighted to see you have ladies indulging in this most comfortable (and slimming!) form of bondage. But I want to discover if their motivation is the same as mine. Also, how do they ensure an airtight seal, what form of buoyancy is used -- foot pump or compressed air cylinder? Please let us hear about this special way of bondage.
Yes, I amazingly have a [very mangled] copy of Atomage Bondage Supplement No.1 in my possession. Tune in tomorrow to see the pick "J.J." is referring to.
