True Mystic Confessions

Total Issues: 1

True Mystic Confessions featured articles on astrology and dreams but mainly carried fictionalized and sensationalized accounts of nudist camp orgies, drugs and sex crimes. Nearly all of the pieces are anonymous and that is understandable. Many of the stories do have a weird element to them but in general this magazine is only for the completist.
