This magazine was one of the first notable rubber fetishism-specific underground publications, as it was started in the 1970s. Issue 1 is listed as being published in July 1979.
It has been suggested by some that Atomage started their Rubberist imprint due to the success of the rubber-specific fetish publication titled "Dressing for Pleasure", which was a rival contemporary underground magazine, as that phrase is specifically listed on Atomage Rubberist's very first cover.
The magazine is listed as having a run of 16 known issues. It is unclear if there were any other issues after the release of issue 16.
