ClubSeventeen.com began as a sexy magazine, Seventeen, in 1875, but faced distribution difficulties since it features 16- and 17-year-old girls being sexy, and since the age of consent in several countries is/was 18, sales plummeted. In 1986, the company began producing videos, which suffered from the same problem but by the late 1990s, the company, now renamed Club Seventeen, featured only models over 18 years of age, and shortly thereafter opend the ClubSeventeen.com website.

Paul Raymond Publications

Paul Raymond Publications is a British pornography publisher which publishes a number of softcore pornographic magazine titles each month, including; EscortClub InternationalMayfairMen OnlyMen's WorldRazzleSwing MagClub DVD and Escort DVD.

Paul Raymond (1925–2008) had launched his first magazine, King with the profits from his Raymond Revuebar in 1964, but it was short-lived. The company originated with its owner's purchase of Men Only in 1971 and Club International in 1972. Raymond relaunched Men Only with photographs of the women who worked at his strip-clubs. Within a few years Raymond claimed the magazine had a circulation of 500,000. Raymonds daughter Debbie ran the company for a time, until she died from a drugs overdose in 1992. The companies main competitors in the UK are Gold Star Publications, formerly owned by David Sullivan, and Northern & Shell, owned by Richard Desmond. In 1999 the company had revenues of £20 million, and pre-tax profits of £19 million. As of 2001 it produced eight of the 10 best-selling pornographic magazines in the UK, aided by its deal with Comag, one of Britains largest magazine distributors. In the 2000s the companies fortunes waned due to competition from the internet and "lad mags".

After the death of Paul Raymond, the US arm of the company was sold to Magna Publishing Group, while the UK arm was sold to a group of private investors. These investors formed the company Tri Active Media Ltd, which then owned Paul Raymond Publications for roughly 3 years.

On October 6th 2012, Paul Chaplin bought Paul Raymond Publications for an undisclosed sum, and reunited it with Loaded and Superbike magazines under the newly formed Blue Active Media Ltd. This acquisition came with it new investment for the Paul Raymond brand, with focus on bringing the magazine titles back to their heyday - most notably forMayfair, which has even seen improvement on paper quality and pagination.

Chaplin, knowing the value that digital media can bring to print publication, has also invested in redeveloping the online and television presence of the Paul Raymond brand, with Paul Raymond TV and new websites in the pipeline for early 2013.
