Its Introduction

From the flyer:

THE NAKED TIMES is a new adult Trekzine which will be published approximately four times per year, permitting. It will deal with all adult themes, and will specifically concentrate on the K/S relationship in its many forms, it will, however, avoid "Mary Sue like the plague!"

All writers and artists are highly encouraged to submit their work for consideration in NAKED TIMES, keeping in mind the theme of this zine. Also, please be sure to include return postage on anything you ever wanted to see alive again. The first issue of NAKED TIMES should be going to the printer sometime during the month of December, providing all contributions are in on time.

NAKED TIMES will be printed offset, side-stapled, and shipped in an envelope which proclaims to contain filthy material! (Not really, but it certainly got your attention in a hurry!) There will be high-quality reproduction on the entire zine with a special emphasis on 'true' reproduction for all artwork. We are equipped to do 'half-tone' artwork printing, so if any of you artists prefer to work in pencils or subtle tones, please feel free to do so.

We are accepting advance orders for NAKED TIMES #1, as well as subscriptions. ONLY AS MANY COPIES ARE ORDERED IN ADVANCE WILL BE PRINTED! There will be very few extras, so if you want to be sure to get a copy, please order in advance. Orders should be received by December 31, 1978, to insure [sic] reserving a copy of this atrocity for yourself! You absolutely must be over 18 years of age to receive NAKED TIMES, and if there is any doubt (i.e. you order the zine in a letter written in a red crayon), we will request a photocopy of your driver's license or rabies vaccination record.

If you are offended by the physical love between two people of the same sex, or if you're simply offended by sex (god help you), do not order NAKED TIMES. there will be explicit sexual material between these covers, and should be read by those [unknown 12-letter word with a strikethrough} open-minded folks out there! Order NAKED TIMES today. (Your libido will appreciate it later.)

A Fan Remembers

In 1999, a fan wrote about Naked Times and another zine with a long run, As I Do Thee:
I would like to share a bit of information with those of you who aren’t so familiar with the titles available. I’m more knowledgeable about the Naked Times and As I Do Thee series as I was able to collect them all. I would class the NT zines as the lusty, more gritty of the group. If all you want to read is a lot of sex without a lot of plot getting in your way they are a good place to turn. There are some good stories to be had; I’ve recently pulled out a couple from the mid-80's and was not disappointed. Some are reviewed in this issue. The AIDT zines must be considered among the best for consistently providing tender, compassionate stories so chuck full of love you can hardly believe your eyes. They explore the challenges and rewards of love in ways no K/S fan should miss. Want a feel-good feeling? As I Do Thee will deliver. [1]
