Freebase

  1. Escort

    Escort is a British men's adult magazine, or softcore magazine, which falls under the description of pornography, or erotica. By 2012, Escort was in its 32nd year, or volume. The content is a combination of photographs and text, with the photographs almost entirely being those of partially or completely nude females. Escort specialises in pictures of amateur models, some of which are sent to the magazine by readers - these are affectionately known as "readers' wives". It often features photo-shoots taken in an "ordinary" location like a pub, or outdoors at a place familiar to British readers. Up to and including vol. 15, Escort had a distinctive 'cut-out' cover, which folded out into a poster; this 'cut-out' design allowed a few smaller pictures on the contents page to be visible, thus giving a sneak preview of other women posing in the magazine; one of these smaller pictures was usually that from the magazine's regular 'Girls of ...' feature showing women posing at various locations of that issue's chosen town. Escort is published by Paul Raymond Publications which also releases other similar titles including, Club International, Mayfair, Men Only, Men's World, and Razzle. Escort also has a digital identity on the official Paul Raymond site, where the hardcore imagery not found in the print version is also shown.
