Punk Lust is a punk zine by Wilum Pugmire from Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

Wilum Pugmire gives the year 1981 as the date the first issue was released. The fanzine ran until 1996. The zine covered the punk scene in the Pacific Northwest and the bands of the era, such as Solger, Hazel, Godhead Silo, and the Fastbacks. It also included fiction, poetry by Todd Nelson and others, reviews of records from the label K Records, and letters from young punks such as Mark MacLaughlin (of the bands Limp Richards and Green River) a.k.a. Mark Arm, editor of The Attack.

Contributors of writing included Jessica Amanda Salmonson, among others.

Art work was contributed by David Billman, John Crawford, Lee Ellingson, Allen Koszowski, and Jeffrey Thomas.

Wilum Pugmire has stated: “Punk rock gave me the guts to be myself, and for this I shall be eternally grateful.”

As editor of Punk Lust, he was interviewed by the zine Punk Research.

Wilum Pugmire also published the fanzines Midnight Fantasies and Old Bones in the 1970s and Queer Madness in the 1980s. In the 2000s, he released the title Idiot Chaos.
