What a great mag this was. My dad had it and I used to sneak glances at it when he was at work.
I'm actually tempted to purchase old copies that appear on eBay from time to time.
Does anybody have some DLs or know of any links that have issues of this mag?
I remember this mag and used to see it for sale in NY sex galleries.
W&P seemed to have more color images than the few other enema publications at that time. Still remember the first Penthouse issues with the special preference letters being published.
About the same time my father had some publication he picked up in his many travels that was mostly black and white images and a few stories. Forgot the name of the publication. What surprised me was one day the new publication he had featured the first part of a two part story titled, "The Enema Torture of Eleanor Hurst". This story was very well written in great detail. I was surprised to find the enema story in the publication. Unfortunately, I never did get to see the second installment of the young woman's torture at the hands of the evil nurse in the treatment room.
Did anyone happen to see both installments of the story in publication or perhaps somewhere else in one entire section?
A great story may have been lost to history.
No recollections dramatically different from those of others. I bought a few Water and Power and WaterWorks mags at an adult bookstore in my city in the 1970s. i was thrilled to find them and there were never a lot of them. I had maybe half a dozen when I went to move in with my girlfriend (later, wife) and I tossed them. A real regret! On the brightside, I did have the opportunity to give her a few enemas before we split.
I have a few copies... and Enema Erotica... I'm having a clean out and thought i'd sell them. I'm in Australia though so the postage is a real cost.
If there is any interest let me know... if you are on Fetlife I have them on my profile pics - electrodick1
Oh the hours of pleasure I have had reading Water and power. I wish they still published.
I had many issues enema thrills
Yes I have a lot of the WATER POWER mag's . An yes they were not worth taking home . But if you were really into enemas like a lot of us . You just had to have them even bad or not . I also have a couple of NOZZLE TALK great mag! I also have all the copies of BETH TYLOR mag's . Now those were real and good . I also wish I could of got SHERMA mag's . But they were few and far between . I did get one of her SUPER 4 QT bags. An I still have that bag today an love it . She was one REAL woman into enemas . I wish more places an women like her an the women that worked for her . Would fix one of those clinics all over this country .
I still have a couple of tatty water and power mags, plus one or two similar, still a story in there that gets me exited.
A question for all, but maybe ronpoo above........why were many of the male enema recipients in those mags often called ronnie ?
I had many of the Water and Power, Waterworks and ENEMA! magazines, I bought them all from Roxbury Press in Calofornia. After I placed my order, I just couldn't wait for that plain brown package to arrive with new stuff. I got all the Penthouse Magazines and Forum Letters but only if they had a few letters in the column called Special Preference. I treasured all of them for 25 years until I got married in 1999. I stupidly destroyed all of them after reading every one for the last time. How much would they be worth nowadays? Oh, well, thats water under the bridge....
I have a foot locker full of Water and Power, Water Works, and many other magazines on the subject. Then there are the paperback books (dozens), many by Dr. Guenter Klow, coupled with other similar authors of the time.
Have not really looked at them in 20+ years, and it is time to sell, and let others enjoy the magic of that period.
NOW, go out and make it a gr8 day
Your posting reminds me that I have two of the old Sherema magazines. Sherry included an issue with each of the bags that I bought from her back in '83-'84. Being gay, they weren't really of any interest to me. Too bad we don't have a "For Sale or Trade" category on here, so we could list things of interest to others on the group, and then deal directly with the person.
@ illfer ^^^ You make a good point there...Something I too have pondered considering content of albums & images therein.....Not unlike others I too have established quite a substantial "collection" over many many years .

I came across my first copy of WaterWorks at a shop in NYC while attending a conference. Prior to that time, I had never seen a publication that focused entirely on enemas. Seeing that magazine was quite a surprise. Of course I was not about to leave without buying it, so I waited until no other customers were near the front counter before I discreetly approached and purchased the magazine. It wasn't until I returned home and found a bit of privacy that I was able to explore the stories, articles and pictures. As has been noted by others here, publications such as Waterworks confirmed that there were others who shared a common interest in this kink.
SirWilliam55 asks why so many male enema recipients seemed to be called "Ronnie" (in the classic enema mags from the 70's). A remote guess: Beth Tyler's husband was named "Ron." She was a nurse and probably she introduced him to erotica enemas (?) But they were definitely east coast -- maybe there is no connection. I heard they got divorced and he re-married a Filipino nurse, also named Beth. One comment on their old web site suggested the original Beth died some years ago. And a related site said Ron died a few years back. Rumors or not -- they broke some barriers and provided quality stuff.
I remember buying these magazine in the late 1970's early 1980's. I was still a teenager but had a fake ID. In the last few years I have built up a collection of about 100 vintage issues of Water & Power, WaterWorks, etc. from ebay and other vintage magazine sources!!!
I only have one issue I bought many years ago, I really need to scan it in while the pages are not stuck together.
the hoseman1, I like hoses
I was so delighted when I first saw that magazine. Up until that day I thought I was really weird.
Like Jerry, it was how I knew I wasn't alone. Very reassuring...and very erotic for me.
Recently "Water and Power" has now become synonymous with an English registered video production company of the same name
Considering this, perhaps the wording itself cannot be wholly owned ??
I thought US copyright / trademark laws (publications act) would legally protect registered ownership rights
I doubt that the people who published the magazine would have invested the money in registering a trademark. It's not a cheap process!
You all know I am not all that into the enema deal but I have heard a bit or two over the years about Ron and Beth. As all of you know those were not their real names. Yes Ron married twice and to the public his wife called herself Beth, but neither of them were really named Beth. Also, while I am not 100 percent sure if I had to guess I would said that it was NOT Beth that got Ron into enema's, but rather Ron that got Beth into them.
I happen to have a very good friend who knew them personally, and they were very close. As a matter of fact we were out to lunch one day and Dave AKA, Ron Tyler called. My friend was talking to him like any other friend. I was a bit star shocked sitting there hearing that entire conversation actually. While trying not to be rude by listening to every word, well, I won't lie about it, I was hanging on every single word, lol. Yes, I was being a nosey Nellie. Can you blame me though? I mean one of our communities God's was on the other end of the phone. I just couldn't help myself. I tried to act like I wasn't paying attention though, lol. Yes, I'm so naughty and bad.
Water & Power was 'the' enema magazine for its time. I have a trunk filled with W & P magazines, and paperback books from the Dr. Guenter Glow series. Dr. Glow's books typically, or always dealt with enemas; I would say that they were more from an erotic standpoint. The may have also dealt with sensual over the knee spankings, but please don't hold me to that. It's been well over 20 years since I looked at any of them, or even opened the trunk.
And, yes, I do have a lot of erotic spanking literature (books & magazines) of that time.
There are also some Water Works magazines, and maybe a large quantity of Penthouse Letters.
Candidly, when I left San Francisco, I gave the bulk of my collection of erotic reading material to the Society of Janus, a great organization of the time, and probably still is today.
These magazines and books have been in a trunk, unopened since I moved back to Texas at the beginning of the Century. And, it has always been my feeling that if one does not use something within 2-3 years, it should be sold so that the funds can be used to purchase something that will be of a more useful nature to owner.
So, I will sell a lot of magazines and paper back books, some great reading material, if we can figure out a way to accomplish the goal. Ah, yes; there are also other magazines very similar to W & P from that period.
Let me know if you are interested; thank you.
That's a philosophy that will sound like music to the ears of any secondhand bookshop owner, but is the antithesis of what I practice. I still have comics and all other kinds of publications and books from the 1950s and 60s stashed away somewhere in the house - though it would take some diligent searching and moving to find them again. Even so, the idea alone that they are here, safe and sound is a comfort. It's a sort of continuity, a connection with the past. Loose that and you loose part of yourself.
@Hermann, I have from time to time seen several of the Water & Power (as well as several of the other mags from that period) being auctioned off on eBay. Might want to look into that.
Is some enema magazine published today? If so, what is its title, how can one learn about it and perhaps subscribe to it?
WET, you are probably correct. The magazines and books are 35+ years old, and overall in very good shape. Ive though about ebay, but haven't gotten there to explore.
It is time, however, that I remove them from my home. SO, maybe a sale is around the corner.
Have a gr8 weekend!
I have a collection of about 150 copies of Water & Power, WaterWorks, Enema Dreams, Enema Diary, Enema Adventures, etc.
So scan some stuff and post it you big stallion
Not everyone has a scanner. And to scan well, takes practice and a decently good machine. It is also a time consuming activity.
