R.I.P. Leg Show Magazine

angela ryan legshow

 

I recently suggested to a fetish model that she contact the people at Leg Show Magazine about publishing her nylon fetish photos and she replied that the magazine no longer exists.

I started doing my own research and found that their last printed issue was in August 2012. Their website (http://www.legshowmag.com) is down and was not renewed. There is also a "The End" message on the German Leg Show magazine website (http://www.leg-show.de). The owners of Leg Show Magazine is the Mavety Media Group. Their site is also down (http://www.mmgmagazines.com). Some people with subscriptions have stated in forums that they stopped receiving issues and never received any notice about the magazine shutting down.

Leg Show Magazine was an adult fetish magazine which specialized in photographs of women in nylons, corsets, and high heels. The magazine achieved great success under editor Dian Hanson in the 1990's. Hanson departed Leg Show and is now the Sexy Book Editor at Taschen Publishing. The original owner of Leg Show was George W. Mavety, who died in 2000. Dita Von Teese, Aria Giovanni, Angela Ryan, Sylvia Saint, and Ludella Hahn are some of the models that have graced the covers of the magazine.

I don't know much about the behind the scenes business side of Leg Show, but the magazine itself was great at times. R.I.P.

 

If you know any details about what happened, let us know in the comments.

That's a bummer.

Mia Mantis should be in that mag if it was still being published. She's got legs like no other, feminine and muscular.

Dianne Hanson was the heart and soul/sole of Leg Show . I shall never forget her beauty gracing the "ed" page although she only revealed her face one time. When her sincerity left so did the quality.
