Rubber & Latex Lifestyle
Rubber fetishism and latex fetishism is an attraction to people wearing latex clothing and sometimes to the garments themselves. Some people dabble in the kink, and others make it more of a lifestyle. Some buy latex clothing off the rack and others get it molded for their body like a second skin.
Latex can up your sex quotient and make you not only feel like the sexiest bitch on earth, but it also intensifies touch. Being caressed in latex (especially undergarments) can be very mind blowing. Latex can also be physically restrictive and make foreplay even better, especially if you and/or your partner is into bondage. Foreplay is a huge part of the rubber lifestyle—it heightens physical sensitive, and makes your body sensitive to temperature, specifically heat.
Anonymity Under Latex
You can even conceal your identity once you put on a hood or mask—this can let you let down your guard and/or give you lots of confidence in sexual situations. You can also be anyone you want to be when you’re in a latex French maid costume or let you feel on top of the world and crack the whip in a full-body rubber suit like Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman.
Starting off with latex can be tricky. Don’t dive into a full latex suit right away. Latex panties and maybe a bra is a good start. Then you will find out if you sweat a lot while wearing it and how latex works with your body. Use silicone-based lube or talcum powder to put it on. If you head to a fetish event, swingers club or venue like that, you might decide against wearing latex if it’s too hard to get in and out of to go to the bathroom. Stay hydrated, since it will make you perspire.
Peel You Like a Banana
Getting out of it can be trickier than putting it on. Just grab and peel like a banana. If you get stuck, jump in the shower and allow the water separate the garment from your body. It needs to be rinsed and hung up to dry anyway. Go basic with warm water and soap.
Like-Minded Latex Lovers
There are lots of places to meet other latex lovers including Fetlife and other online communities, fetish parties, clubs and gatherings, Meetup groups (which feature fetishists from around the globe), and dating sites like Badults, BDSM.com, and ALT.com. Meeting like-minded people on vanilla sites like Plenty of Fish (POF), OK Cupid, and eHarmony can be hard and almost like looking for a needle in a haystack. If you are already in a committed relationship, this is something you and your lover want to discuss how far you want to delve into the lifestyle.
If you love it and it becomes a lifestyle for you, it doesn’t mean you will be in latex from head to toe 24/7. For some, it’s like air and water. They need it to function, feel fulfilled, and even get off (which makes it a requirement and non-negotiable). Some only wear to events, while others wear it daily and have a closet full of latex dresses and other garments. You create your own space and boundaries and decide what’s right or makes the most sense to you.
