If Their Mothers Only Knew is a slash multimedia fanzine.

Media Monitor called it the "adult counterpart of Lions and Tigers and Zines, Oh My!". It accepted contributions from any TV show or movie except Star Trek, Blake's 7, or Man from UNCLE.

Submission Requests

From a 1992 submission request in Zine Scene: "Looking for contributions based upon any TV show or movie except for Star Trek, B7, UNCLE. Will be the adult counterpart to Lions and Tigers. Looking for everything from sweetness to hard-core. Send submissions to Peg Kennedy, The Good Witch (that's witch, not bitch, blimey!) of the West."

From a 1993 request for issue #2 in Bill Hupe's catalog: "... still looking for a few good submissions to round it out. Multimedia "/" fiction, if you're game would love to see a few fictional letters from your favorite character's mother."
