Joanie Allum

French ClubIf you’re 40 to 50 years old and the name Joanie Allum doesn’t ring a bell then go and pick up your favourite shots from Mayfair, Men’s World, Men Only, Club Pour Homme, Club USA, Genesis, blah blah blah – and look who took the pictures – Joanie Allum!!!!!

Joanie began as a model being shot by her husband John Allum and eventually ended up behind the camera. What happened was, John was tied up one day and said to Joanie, who was doing the make up at the time, you’ll have to take the shots; the rest is history.

Carla Fernandez – discovered by Joanie
Kirsty Birkett – Joanie
Linda Lusardi – Joanie (at a bus stop in London!)

The list is endless, as a matter of fact the US versions of Club and Men Only at the golden period might as well have been called Joanies Girls because she shot them all. It got so bad the magazines even started making up names so that the punters didn’t catch on that one person was taking all the shots.

She’s got a website where you can buy all the shots that the magazines couldn’t print; and there’s thousands of them.

Now I know I’m famous!

If you’re buying the latest issues of Men Only then you’ll see that they’re running a series in each issue for their anniversary year. Each month the editor of Men Only (that’s the guy who sits on the left side of God, the editor of Mayfair sits on the right!) calls me up on the phone and says “Hi Alec, can you supply me with xy & z”.

When I’m not sure it I’ve got the magazine in stock I ask if I can ring him back and he says; of course here’s my DIRECT number.

Am I name dropping – you’re fucking dead right!

What do you call her?

One of the biggest problems we suffer with at jobbydealer is what do we call a model when we’re listing her as appearing in a magazine. Two great example would be Toni Kessering and Carla Fernandez.

Both these girls are highly collectable and well known but dependent on which magazine you buy you may know them by different names.

Toni Kessering is regularly called Titanic Toni or Toni Francis and Carla is also well know as April Stevens as that’s how she appeared in her first couple of Shoots in the UK edition of Club International; I think the tog was Ralph Medland.

To combat this problem we’ve developed a piece of code (it doesn’t work for every girl) so that if you type in Toni Francis to our search box on the site the computer will look for all the options we have for that name. That means that if we’ve got the girl listed as Toni Kessering and you type Toni Francis the computer will still find a match.

The main culprits for calling girls every name under the sun are Fiesta because Ross, the editor as a matter of course took it upon himself to call each girl a different name – even if she she appeared in two different sets in the same magazine!

If you’re looking for a certain girl but can’t seem to find her, even after using the search box on the site, then send us an email with a clear pic of her face and what name you have for her and we’ll see what we can do to help you.

Bargain Basement

If you look on the right hand side of the site you’ll see a banner offering mags from £1.99

There’s nothing wrong with these magazines the only reason they are cheap is because they are from recent years. The price of £1.99 includes 1st Class cost so in effect you’re paying less than a quid for a magazine.

As always, if you live outside the UK then the airmail is added to the price.

Take some time to browse through the bargain list because I’m sure you’ll find some little gems in there.

Alec.

Clare Leng/Margeson

We’ve got mixed up several times and called Clare Margeson Clare Leng, this has mainly happened on the later editions of Escort around volume 17.

This happens because I’m looking at so many pictures that I confuse myself sometimes :(

Club Pour Homme

French ClubWhen Trojan bought Paul Raymond jobbydealer bought the office copies of ALL the PRP titles. This load included some rare treasures including nearly every issue of Club Pour Homme, the French edition of Club International.

This magazine contains all the girls normally found in Club, Escort, Men’s World and Men Only but with much hard shots.

What you’ll find inside French Club is the same set that you may have seen in a UK title but whereas the English mags couldn’t show pink, the French, who love their meat, had no such problems. Don’t say goodbye; say bonjour!

Paul Raymond under threat

Around August 2009 the Paul Raymond Group sold their adult titles to Trojan Publishing. The titles included Mayfair, Club International, Men Only, Men’s World, Escort, Just Girls and Razzle.

The adult trade press is reporting as of July 2010 that some of the companies involved with Trojan have gone into liquidation which puts the distribution of the titles in jeopardy.

I don’t think this is the end of the publishing of these titles because they account for a huge percentage of the UK retail market and it won’t effect the USA arm of Paul Raymond as that was sold to a different publishing group.

If anyone has trouble getting their latest issues of these magazines then give us a shout and we’ll see what we can do.
