Red Speedo Diaries is a het X-Files anthology with four issues.

Regarding the Zine's Title

In the early 1990s, David Duchovny played the narrator in an erotic TV series called Red Shoe Diaries where his characters would read letters that women sent him about their personal experiences with love and betrayal. When he played Mulder on the X-Files, he was once shown wearing red speedos. The name of the zine alludes to both.
