latex101:

Finally after months of work we are pleased to announce our latest line of products!

Introducing our Textured Latex!!

Stunning, eye-catching and sexy, this is the future.
This pattern is GEARS.

See more at: http://www.latex101.com/shop

The brilliant folks at Latex101 came out with their new line of textured latex quite some time ago, but this is my first time talking about them. 

While I haven’t handled any of 101’s brand of textured latex, they appear to be laser-etched patterns made in a way similar to the designs you find from KinkEngineering. This is very different from the textured ‘exclusive latex’ that you might find at rubear, which uses raised layers of latex to create the textured pattern. Shown here is the Gears pattern, but also available are Sahara, Graffiti, Armour and Circuit.

Textured latex can be a wonderful addition to your latex outfits. Rubear’s exclusive can be very dominant and visually distracting if used to excess, so it’s important to use it sparingly unless you’re going for a gaudy, over-stated look. On the other hand, the laser-etched latex is a little more subtle and I think more forgiving in that respect. Overall, it’s great stuff and I hope to get my hands on some one day soon!

Btw, I got some great responses from that last video that I posted. Thanks so much! I’ll post the and discuss at a later point. It’s Canadian Thanksgiving today, so I guess I’m going to spend some time with friends and have a lot of food and drink. What’s your favourite celebratory meal?

Hey there,

I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting very frequently lately. Unfortunately, I think it’ll have to be this way for awhile. So, if anyone wants to help me out and write some posts for my blog, please let me know. It might be fun to do some collaborative work with a fellow latex or leather enthusiast!

     Despite being quite busy, I had the chance to make this very silly, and very boring video the other day. Someone anonymously asked me to do a video while wearing my facemask, and I had taken the time to put on my catsuit, so I thought that I might as well make a video. Don’t be too excited about this video…it is really, really boring. I just talk for 7 minutes about nothing much, and do really stupid things. In my opinion, the ‘best’ part is watching my eyebrows in the first 10 seconds, so you can close it down after the intro.

I’ll end this post with a quick question. I mention donations and selling my latex creations in the video. Is this something that I should pursue when I have more time?

Just the other day (actually more than a week ago…I’m so sorry), ‘Anon’ asked me

How does latex feel when you wear it?

I feel like I’ve probably answered that question before, but I’m a bit too lazy to scroll through my blog right now. As such, I thought I could answer the question and share this newer design from Simon O Latex, all at the same time.

The catsuits at Simon O are always a bit unique, and this metallic blue suit with matching gasmask are no exception. I’ve noticed that some designer at Simon O is really fond of the 80s aerobics bodysuits. They aren’t really my preference, but I can see why some people might like them. If I were to wear this shiny catsuit, I would probably go w/o the mask (unless I’m looking for some breath play, I guess) and accessorize with a belt, thigh harness, gauntlets, etc to give it more of a superhero look.

Personal preferences aside, I feel like this is a pretty good example to talk about what latex feels like. Sadly, I’ve been so busy with work that it’s actually been awhile since I’ve put on latex, but I’m sure I can remember what it feels like :p. Firstly, the type of lubrication that you used to put on your gear can make a huge difference in how latex feels. To me, powdering with talc/baby powder makes the latex feel really smooth and silky… until you start to sweat! If I just slip it on in the shower, the water makes it easy to wear, but someone feels…disconnected. I’m not sure how to explain it, but to me it kind of feels like you’re in latex, with a layer of water in between your skin and the latex. On the other hand, if you dress using silicone oil, there is a sort of warmth to the silicone. I always feel like the silicone oil acts like some sort of intermediate that helps connect with the latex. It all sounds a bit weird as I read what I’m typing, but I’m not sure if I can convey the feeling in another way.

The latex itself usually feels constrictive and tight over the body (if it’s fitted well). Sensations through latex feel really amazing. Latex will spread the pressure wherever you’ve been touched, which leads to a really unique experience. If it’s thin latex, it can make me really sensitive. When it’s thicker, it’s almost like a tease because the sensation feels good, but you also feel like it’s eluding you because so much of the feeling is lost in the thickness of the rubber. It’s fun :). Latex itself feels interesting. It is cool at first, but not cold like metal, and gives way when you touch it (i.e. it’s a firm but soft…like skin I guess?). When it’s clean, it is slightly sticky, but most people will have it lubed up so it’s very nice and slick.

I’m not sure I can think of any more words to describe how latex feels to me, but I’m sure some of you do! I’m curious to hear how other people describe the feeling of latex. What does latex feel like to you?

The boots: what do rubber/latex/shiny wearers use? Are tall rubber boots popular at gatherings? If so, what brand? What goes best with rubber wear? Does brand (Hunter) matter?

Hey Anon,

     Boots, boots, boots. I’ve seen rubber people wear all sorts of different boots at events and at home. The main styles of boots that I see out are leather army boots, gumboots/wellingtons and motocross boots, though I’ve also seen latex, goth-style boots and the really tall, thigh-high boots. It really depends on your preference.

      For the most part, I don’t think people really care what kind of boots you wear. Certain types of footwear go better with some outfits, and others hint at the type of scene that you are interested in. Wellingtons and muddy, gunge play or watersports; army boots and master/slave/bootlicking type play; etc. 

       I would say that my favourite type of boot is the good old leather army boot. They suit a lot of different outfits, they have a nice thick heel that keeps your body as far away from the dirty pub floors as possible, and they just make me feel confident. The brand really doesn’t matter so much to me, but maybe it does for some people. Our good friend twohandstochoke, for example, has more boots than anyone I know, so he might be a fun person to chat boots with!

Do you have a preference for the boot type that you wear?

***It was very, very nice to hear the support that I got from some of you here on tumblr. I realize that my previous text post was the sort that just begs for that kind of attention, which is kind of an annoying thing to do. I’m sorry about that, and I thank you for indulging me!***

Ugh….I’ve been terribly busy for school related stuff. I won’t get into it here, but if you’re really curious you can send me a message about it. But in honour of working really hard to get finished with my schooling, I thought I would share this university related thing that I never, ever got involved with: the varsity jacket.

At the university that I attend, I’m not sure if our football team is any good, or if they even have these kind of jackets. Far more common, oddly enough, is the prevalence of varsity jackets for the Engineering majors and the Science majors. Regardless of who’s wearing them, I find them to be not so appealing. Perhaps this is because I never had that one-sided highschool romance with the popular jock, where one day he forgets his jacket at my house when we’re doing a homework assignment and I fall asleep wearing it. Geez, that sounds like a terrible movie.

Taking the jacket away, I actually quite like Blackstyle’s American Football Outfit. With a swap of the colour palette, the 3/4 length trousers and sleeveless top could easily be renamed a cycling suit or similar, and I think that’s a good thing. Versatility is key!

Question of the day: If you have a latex/rubber fetish, does that material fetish overlap with a sports fetish? i.e. do you like rubber sports wear, or would you prefer to have real sports wear and latex wear separately?

BAM! Right in the ego!

I’ve kind of come to terms with photos being stolen and shamelessly reblogged with out credit. It happens, and I’ve either need to get over it or just leave the internet.

Recently though, I came across a picture of myself where the thief went one step further and cropped out my face before sharing the photo. Of course, the tumblr-user was one of those “into beards and fetish” guys, so maybe I don’t fit as his ideal sex partner. But all I’m really hearing is, “Wow! You look awesome in that latex suit. Too bad about your face.”

The real kicker? The poorly cropped photo has more notes than my original post. Excuse me while I find a paper bag to wear. Paper or plastic?

hiii! i just wanted to ask you: how do you get your latex so shiny? I have a spray-on shiner and I tried polishing my latexwear with it like 3 times but it still looks like those dishwashing gloves you can buy at any supermarket (as in no shine at all) D:

Hey Anon,

      Shiny latex is something that the typical latex fetishists admire and seek out in their own gear. I have to admit that I’m not the best at keeping my stuff shiny and clean. If you’re impressed with the shine on my latex, it is probably because the picture you are looking at was taken when I was hanging with twohandstochoke. He swears by Vivishine, and always has a bottle with him. When we take photos together, we usually clean up the latex with his Vivishine before taking photos.

      If you don’t want to buy Vivishine there are alternatives, but they rarely produce as nice an effect.

  1. First, I make up my little batch of silicone lube (see instructions on this previous post).
  2. Next, I wash my latex with warm water and a little bit of dish detergent (see this silly video for details).
  3. After that, I partly fill my tub with warm water (or use a smaller wash tub) and add some of my home made silicone lube to it. The amount I add depends on how much latex I want to shine. I haven’t done it for awhile, but let’s say it’s around 1 tbs for a shirt and shorts.
  4. I then swish around my latex in the water for awhile. The silicone oil will lightly coat your latex for a nice shine. This part is still a bit experimental. The Vivishine product has some sort of surfactant in it (I assume) that allows the shiny silicone oil to spread thinly and evenly all over your latex. Without this special surfactant, the oil tends to form “oil droplets” and you get patchy coverage over your latex. I think adding a tiny bit of detergent might help with even spreading. More experimenting is necessary on my part.

If you don’t want to go through the whole hassle of washing your latex, or if you just want a spot shine, you can just have someone lightly rub silicone oil (or silicone lube) over your latex covered body. Using a clean microfibre cloth (or any cloth that doesn’t leave behind fibres), you can really polish your latex to a good shine. I don’t bother with spray shiners.

If your latex is still not shiny after that, it might be your latex and not your shining method. Chlorinated latex doesn’t shine up as nicely, for example. I’ve noticed that some really cheap latex items have the same problem. I think really cheap latex is similar to the latex that you get in bike inner tubes, and that stuff just doesn’t shine properly.

Anyway, hope that helps!

Well folks, I’m not really sure what’s going on but I guess I won’t complain. Over the past week, the traffic to my tumblr has gone absolutely nuts. Admittedly, I run a blog for a pretty small niche market here, so 200+ hits a day is definitely not normal for me. At first, I was worried that someone on Reddit or similar was sharing my posts around and everyone was having a laugh over my kinks, but it seems the majority of the traffic is also from Tumblr….and I guess people could also be laughing at my posts, but then there would be some evidence through mocking comments or similar. Anyway, I’m heading out for the weekend, so I just won’t worry about it.
Maybe I’ve shared this picture before, but maybe I haven’t. I’m wearing my polo shirt from Latex101, with gauntlets made by twohandstochoke, and I’m playing the super scary dom role in this photo with twohands. He’s wearing the microbreathe hood from KinkEngineering and a catsuit from Libidex (probably). This visit took place…two years ago I think! It’s always fun to hang out with him though.
I find that when posing for photos like this, it’s helpful to both mentally and physically prepare and pretend. For example, I think in my mind and trick myself into thinking that I’m actually doing something (i.e. choke twohands with lead), and then I physically prepare to do it and tense my muscles as if I’m going ahead with the action. Haha, look at my giving acting/modeling advice. Don’t listen to me :)  Hope you all enjoy and have a great weekend.
What are your strategies for taking a good photo? What kind of scenes/scenarios would be cool for future photoshoots? Alternately, what do you think is the reason with my spiking visitor counts?

Etsy is a great place to find some unique designs from small scale latex designers and crafters. In my last search through the site, i came across Spanish-based latex designers, CocoLateLatex. They have a limited selection of menswear and accessories, but it all seems very well done. 

Take a look at their Latex Spiked Muzzle. The strap up the centre of the face, combined with the small spikes, make the design somewhat unique for a muzzle. I’m not sure if it’s so easy to breath with this muzzle on, but I guess that can be kind of fun too. I think I might try a similar design myself and see how it goes :).

Anyway, here is what they have to say for themselves.

Is this the muzzle for you? How do you usually search for cool latex items that make your credit card go boooo :( ?

***As an aside, I noticed that within minutes of releasing their photos, a certain unscrupulous blogger had already snatched their photos, removed the credits, and started posting the pictures as their own. Do yourself, and the latex community a favour by unfollowing these lowlifes and just sticking to the original sources. It’s much easier to reblog a designer’s picture than to copy it and remove the sources!***

latex101:

Marbled latex anyone? The future of fetish is here!
http://www.latex101.com/shop/

I know that I’ve spoken a bit disparagingly about marbled latex in the past, but Latex101’s new line of marbled latex is getting me in all the right spots! Judging by the number of notes on this post, many of you haven’t seen their gear yet, so I highly, highly recommend that you run over to their website right now. You might want to freeze your credit card in a block of ice first, just to let yourself cool down a bit before making any impulse purchases!

The boys out at Latex101 have done something really great with their marbled latex items that I can’t quite identify. Somehow, the combination of the marbled patterns, with just the right amount of plain latex segments, well cut patterns, and cute bums has led to a highly desirable product.
