Early life[ edit ] John Coutts was born in to a British family in Singapore. They returned to the United Kingdom in He grew up in a middle-class family and attended the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. Commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Royal Scots , Coutts was forced to resign in when he married a night-club hostess, Eveline Fisher, without the permission of his commanding officer. He migrated with his wife to Australia, where their marriage ended in divorce in He worked at a variety of jobs as well as pursuing his hobby and eventually established a company to produce exotic footwear called "Achilles".
In , Willie moved to North America, while Holly chose to remain in Australia, where she died in at the age of Willie wished to settle in New York but was forced to remain in Montreal, Canada, for a year or so because of immigration issues. Willie was introduced to the American fetish underground by Charles Guyette and later worked with Irving Klaw , the infamous BDSM merchandiser later charged with obscenity , but he is best known for his fetish cartoon character Sweet Gwendoline , which he drew in a style that influenced later artists such as Gene Bilbrew and Eric Stanton.
Bizarre was published, at irregular intervals, from to There were also many letters from readers: he was accused of inventing these but insisted that they were genuine.
These letters covered topics such as high heels , bondage , amputee fetishism , sadomasochism , transvestism , corsets and body modification.
The magazine was suspended completely from to By Coutts was ready to give up the magazine and that year he sold it to someone described only as R. There was no mention within the magazine that it had changed hands, but in issue no.
He destroyed his archives and returned home to England, where he died in his sleep in August In , Willie was inducted into the Leather Hall of Fame. My studio is a pretty cheerful place, and quite unlike the atmosphere that surrounds Gwendoline when the Countess gets hold of her.
The magazine for pleasant optimists who frown on convention. The magazine of fashions and fantasies fantastic! Innumerable journals deal with ideas for the majority. Must all sheeplike follow in their wake? Bizarre is for those who have the courage of their own convictions. Where does a complete circle begin or end? Not even that—there is nothing new in fashion, it is only for the application of new materials—new ornaments—a new process of making—coupled with the taste and ability to create the unusual and unorthodox to the trend of the moment.
If you have any other ideas on the subject, you are a pervert. The basis of a decent society is a happy home. Marriages break up almost invariably because of sex. What you do, or do not do, is your own business, all that matters is that the enjoyment be mutual, — and the time to discuss these things is before you get hitched up. There is a partner to suit everyone somewhere, but the search will be difficult until we can discuss our likes and dislikes, openly, in good taste, without threat from our own brand of standardized Police State.
Sweet Gwendoline (and friends!)
