This is a bi-weekly newsletter about kink and fetish subcultures, news, events, and media.
Our community is 2,543 strong and growing every day!
It’s been a while and we hope you’re doing well! We’d like to welcome to the very first issue of PlayZine, a bi-weekly newsletter focused on kink and fetish subcultures, news, events, and media.
From our inception, PlayTyme has been defined by our community-centric approach. Our products reflect the desires of our customers, our podcasts are normalizing sex-positive conversations, and our Discord server has developed into a strong community of support, love, and fun!
We’re now taking the next step in our evolution, by launching a one-of-a-kind newsletter created BY kinksters, FOR kinksters. Every other week, we’ll bring you the latest news from kink culture, share in-depth articles on a wide range of kink or fetish-related topics, provide a list of awesome podcasts to check out, and provide information about community events around the world.
Our newly re-designed website highlights this new focus, with articles, podcasts, and a community calendar taking center stage. Our store has been moved to shop.playtyme.co, so you can still pick up some swag too! Check out the new site by clicking or tapping the button below and be sure to let us know what you think on social media!
Thank you so much for being a valued part of the PlayTyme family and it brings me such joy to know we’ve reached this point in our journey. Starting with the next issue, these introductions will be written by Casey, PlayTyme’s Community Operations Manager! Be sure to check out the next issue so you can learn more about him and how he ended up leading the PlayTyme team!

Threaded Armor, but not for Knights
Written by Casey
It’s time we talk about the elephant in the room: cloth diapers. With inflation on the rise and many kinksters looking for ways to tighten their belt, cloth diapers present a perfect way to save money on expensive disposable diaper re-stocks. Threaded Armor is the adult-focused sub-brand of cloth diaper wizard company, Super Undies. In this article, I dive deep into the story behind the brand, the products they provide, and why I feel everyone should pick up a pair.
My Fetish for Clowns & Being Vulnerable
Written by Barney
Vulnerability is hard. Being vulnerable always involves some level of discomfort, whether that’s a fear of rejection, anxiety over expectation, or the visceral, gut-wrenching, grip-around-your-heart feeling of knowing this long deep-hidden part of yourself is now out there in the world. My name is Barney and I get turned on by clowns. Follow along as I share my journey towards self-acceptance and why I feel conversations around vulnerability and niche kinks are so important.
