Ball Club Quarterly
Ball Club Quarterly was the magazine brainchild of Ken Schein.
In the "dark days" before Internet access was a common luxury, Schein sold subscriptions to his hastily photocopied contact lists to a limited readership (at their peak, the circulation was estimated at 1000 BCQ and 200 Unique subscribers worldwide) for the price of $45/year.
Published and circulated from Pomona, California, Schein's BCQ promised:
- For men into BALLS! Those who have them, those that want them, those that vacuum pump them! Personal ads, generally uncoded, with photos.
- Good articles and fiction. Excellent reference to other interests such as golden showers, fetishes, tattoos, piercing, sex-clubs, offbeat videos, and very offbeat stuff including: saline injection, enemas, catheters, rough bondage, transsexuals, castration, fisting, bizarre home-made videos, electrolysis, spanking, ball-stretching, rough ball play, sounds, electro-shock, genital modification and more.
The advent of the Internet, BME/Extreme in particular, contributed to the decline of the publications.
