Body Play and Modern Primitives Quarterly was a magazine Fakir Musafar began publishing after he left the Gauntlet and his role with PFIQ. It contained extensive coverage of activities not given coverage in PFIQ and other magazines, such as branding, corsetry, suspension, contortionism and binding, tribalism, and so on.

Since then, Fakir has been publishing new articles that might have been in the magazine online at (back issues are also available there).
