The JADE pages are intended for mature adult viewing only. If you are under 18,
or are easily shocked or offended by material of an erotic or sensual nature, please leave now.



JADE existed to promote and foster new and established talent from the erotic art world, especially members of The Erotic Art Society. The ethos of the magazine was to present to a wider, mature and appreciative audience both new and established talents in the world of erotica for the pleasure and enjoyment of both men and women.

JADE was NOT a 'lads' jerk-off magazine' - the magazine set out to present written, photographic and artistic erotica and the human form in a genuine and sensual manner which appealed to mature men and women, across a wide range of genres and themes and in an adult manner.

JADE was a monthly celebration of male and female eroticism and from our very first issue we took the editorial decision NOT to include irrelevant articles, advice columns or other off-topic editorial material. Advertising space, too, was kept to an absolute minimum and was discreetly confined to the 'back pages' of each issue and not scattered throughout the magazine.

It was our goal, and that of our very talented contributors (over 900 of them), to ensure our readers were given a truly sensual experience as they were taken on a fresh, unhurried and pleasurably erotic journey through each issue.



JADE was launched in May 2002 as a printed publication and was the only erotica magazine published in the UK (by a small, fully independent publisher) to be awarded membership of both The Guild of Erotic Artists and the Association of Erotic Artists. It consistently improved, moving from 48 pages when it began to 76 pages in 2007 and boasting over 100 pages per issue after this.

JADE became the leading erotica-only magazine (free of reams of specious advertising) published within the UK and established itself as the magazine of choice for intelligent and mature readers, both men and women, seeking genuine erotic content rather than porn and wall-to-wall sex adverts.

In April 2008, at the start of its 7th year, JADE moved to a monthly, full colour, high resolution, 80+page (normally over 100 pages per issues), PDF download format and the printed version ceased production after 40 issues.

IN April 2013 the magazine introduced a special 'Hardcore Erotica' section in response to requests from readers and in 2014 this doubled in size. The harder images were kept at the back of the magazine so those who did not wish to view harder material did not need to read through it to pass on to the next feature or article.

In April 2015 JADE became the 'official' magazine of the Guild of Erotic Artists. However in the summer of 2017 the Guild ceased and JADE returned to being an independent magazine and the home of newly formed Erotic Art Society.

However, financial constraints and a falling readership saw the magazine produce its final three volume issue - a whopping 600 plus pages reprising the last 17 years - in March 2018.



Alongside our erotic literature were presented galleries of sensual images from members of The Erotic Art Society and many of the most talented male and female photographers and artists in the world, working in all erotica disciplines around the world.

The erotica published in JADE encompassed all genres and types of photography, art and literature from solo males and females, male/female, female/female, group, male/male, through to gothic, fetish, bondage, retro, bizarre and everything in between in what is often described as both 'soft' and 'hard core'.

JADE did NOT publish off-subject features (such as lifestyle articles about cars or sport or fashion), however, we did include various articles about and concerning erotica and the erotic. Contributions for these slots were always most welcome.

The magazine had a minimal advertising policy and readers never saw things such as telephone sex adverts inside JADE - the magazine only ever presented cover-to-cover erotica. Visit the 'Comments and Reviews' page to see what other lovers of fine erotica had to say about the magazine.



JADE was published monthly and ran for 160 issues. All back issues are still available as high resolution full colour PDF downloads, accessed by unique password. It was not a ‘mass-market’ publication and was not available in the shops or from third parties. The magazine (back issues) is high resolution, full colour (except where black and white images are supplied by contributors), and features erotic fiction, personal stories (fact and fiction), confessions and memoirs, erotic, nude, glamour, fetish, hardcore and fine art photography, and illustrations from men and women on all adult themes of an erotic and sensual nature.

Each issue typically featured the work of at least 5 photographers/artists and 5 writers, along with other JADE features and various articles on erotic-based subjects.

All versions of the magazine incorporate copy and print protection, so you will be unable to copy or print the magazine in its final format. This is to prevent copyright infringement of contributors' work.
