Men Only is a British soft-core pornographic magazine published by Paul Raymond Publications. The title goes back to 1935 — starting out as pocket-sized men’s magazine, Men Only became a standard-sized pin-up magazine in the 1950s before being relaunched in its current form in 1971.

In 1971, Paul Raymond, who ran nightclubs in London’s Soho district, acquired Men Only[8] and relaunched it as the start of a top-shelf publishing empire;[1] it was the main competitor to Fisk Publishing’s Mayfair as well as US magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse during the 1970s and 1980s (Raymond latterly took over Mayfair in 1990).

Early issues of Paul Raymond’s Men Only often included serious articles and interviews, though since the 1980s these have largely been omitted. Photographers from the early years included Fred Enke, R. B. Kane, Harrison Marks,[9] Bob Carlos Clarke, and more recently Bob Twigg. Models have included Mary Millington,[10] Jo GuestAnette DawnLinsey Dawn McKenzie,[11] and Bobbi Eden. Over the years, models featured in Men Only have also appeared in different photoshoots in Paul Raymond’s Club International (a title bought from IPC Magazines). Centerfold models were called Men Only Girl or Men Only Miss.[12]

In September 2012, Paul Chapin purchased the Paul Raymond Publications stable of magazines, including Men OnlyMayfair, and Club International on behalf of Blue Media Publishing Group.[13] Blue Publishing, however, entered administration a year later.[14]

The publishers of Men Only also publish Club InternationalEscortMayfairMen’s World and Razzle. Their magazines are available in most newsagents, although some larger retailers require a modesty bag to protect minors from seeing nudity on the cover
