What Is a Latex Fetish?
Before discussing latex fetish, let’s quickly define what a fetish is. A fetish is a strong liking or positive sexual response to an object, body part, or concept that isn’t typically sexual. These may include feet, shoes, or partners in a certain age range.
Latex Fetish Explained
A latex fetish is when you feel sexual desire or gratification from feeling, seeing, tasting, wearing, or interacting with latex. Certain characteristics of the material are what turn on many latex fetishists.
These unique characteristics of latex material and why they might evoke arousal include the following:
●It wraps well around the wearer’s body without showing skin.
●It has a shiny, velvety, or “wet” look that accentuates the wearer’s curves.
●It has a unique smell and taste.
●Its form-fitting boosts the wearer’s confidence.
●It’s comfortable to wear and feels like a “second skin.”
●The elasticity and versatility make it easy to don and remove.
●Latex is a common rubber material used in making condoms, clothing, sex toys, and accessories.
Latex fetishists may derive their pleasure from positive experiences with latex products. Other people also use the term “rubberist community” for latex fetishists.
Characteristics of Latex Fetish
How do you know if you have a latex fetish? The most obvious sign is if you start feeling arousal or excitement whenever latex is part of the sexual activity or foreplay. You may also encounter latex materials in a non-sexual environment and react similarly.
For others, it takes wearing a latex bodysuit or pair of boots to get turned on. Some want partners to wear latex clothing when they perform sexual activities.
How Do People Get Turned on by Latex?
Latex material is unique in many ways. It has a one-of-a-kind sound, feel, taste, smell, and look. These characteristics can trigger your arousal and stimulate you.
Experience Freedom and Perceived Nakedness
Another reason behind the latex fetish is how it creates the feeling of having a “second skin” when you wear it. Do you enjoy the feeling or perception of being naked without actually being in the nude? Try wearing latex, and you may enjoy the experience.
You may also feel a level of freedom when you wear latex. Its clingy and form-fitting nature may give you the freedom that standard clothing materials can’t provide.
Don a New Identity
The simple act of stepping into clothing a person doesn’t usually wear is enough to turn her on. For example, you often wear very formal and specific clothing for your job and family life. Donning a latex catsuit or corset could create a new identity—someone who is more daring, sexual, and knows what she wants.
Undergo Sensory Deprivation
You may have a more specific kink or fetish that has brought you into the rubberist community. An excellent example of this kink is sensory deprivation, the action of neutralizing a sense or more to boost excitement and pleasure.
Many sex products for sensory deprivation consist of latex, including:
●Hoods and blindfolds
●Collars and cuffs
What Are the Different Types of Latex Fetishes?
Like clothing fetishism, latex fetishism comes in many forms. The types of latex fetishes include the following:
Latex Shoes and Boots Fetish
This particular latex fetish focuses on latex shoes, boots, and other types of footwear. It may also involve a fetish for the shape of the legs or feet wrapped in latex material.
Latex Bodysuit or Clothing Fetish
This latex fetish type arouses the fetishist when he or she wears latex clothing. Some people get sexually excited when their partners wear latex clothing. Latex bodysuits are the common objects of arousal, but they can extend to a latex shirt, pants, or underwear.
Fetish Focused on the Look of Skintight Materials
You may feel provocation when you see yourself or another person wearing skintight materials. It may not matter if you’re wearing latex, silicone, or other materials. Since latex is one of the best materials for making form-fitting fetish clothing, you may have a specific fixation on the material.
Latex Hood and Latex Fetish
If you’re in the BDSM community, you may also prefer latex hoods and masks. Many gimp suits, hoods, neck corsets, cuffs, and collars consist of latex material. Because latex is smooth, elastic, and shiny, it’s one of the best options to create such accessories. Of course, you can find matte latex hoods and masks, too.
What Are Some of the Most Popular Ways to Enjoy Latex Fetish?
Do you want to know how you might enjoy and explore your latex fetish? Here are the different scenarios you should try out if you haven’t yet.
BDSM or Dom/Sub Scenario
Dommes and Subs who need something new to spice up their sex may enjoy trying out latex clothing or accessories. The sub could wear frilly latex underwear on your next session. The dominant could also wear a form-cutting latex skirt framed with leather harnesses. Latex gags, collars, and straight jackets provide more specific BDSM scenarios.
One of the most erotic types of play is sensation play. As mentioned earlier, latex is the material used in many sensory deprivation and sensation play products.
Gently running a latex whip or flogger on a person’s skin while he has a latex blindfold on is one example of sensation play involving latex. Latex also has a distinct rubber smell and sound. You can use these characteristics to heighten your partner’s arousal.
Pet play is a more specific BDSM kink that you can try as a newcomer to the rubberist community. The most popular latex mask used in pet play is the dog mask. In pet play, a variety of kinks can create arousal. It could be the restriction of moving on all fours, drinking out of a bowl on the floor, or begging
Be a Plastic Doll
A specific type of roleplay with latex is the plastic doll scenario. In this roleplay, you or your partner wear a latex bodysuit and makeup to look like a life-sized plastic doll. Depending on your preferences, you could also cover up with latex from head to toe. The person wearing the latex bodysuit will pretend to be a sex doll, at the mercy of the other person who can change their positions and do anything to them.
The scenarios above are also the most popular regarding latex materials and clothing. If you still lack experience, a knowledgeable partner is likely already familiar with them.
How Can Someone Get Started If They’re Interested in Exploring Their Latex Fetish Further?
Are you still unsure about going too deep into sex scenarios with your latex fetish? New rubberists may enjoy the following latex garments, which are all very accessible and beginner-friendly:
Pair of latex gloves
Your hands need to move properly, despite the coverage. Choose gloves that have the right thickness and size. The thinner they are, the freer your fingers can move.
Pair of latex briefs
Latex briefs should be 0.4 mm thick if you want to move well. However, if you’re staying in one position, briefs as thick as 0.6 mm could easily hold their shape and wrinkle less.
Latex skirt or shirt
Latex skirts are less durable when thinner, but they’re also stretchier. Consider reading reviews and testimonials first if you’re buying a latex skirt.
Safety and Health Concerns with Latex Fetishism
Latex has some drawbacks, too. Firstly, you might have a latex allergy. You may also develop sensitivity to latex with incorrect use or overexposure.
Finally, latex is porous. You need to clean all your latex paraphernalia well after using and before storing it.
Latex is “the most sensual fabric there is,” so there’s a lot to enjoy from it as a latex fetishist. You could have a latex fetish for its form-fitting nature or wet look. You could also be a specific type of latex fetishist. For example, you get the most excited when you see latex footwear.
Because it’s highly versatile, latex can be a garment, sex accessory, or other. It matches a diverse range of scenarios, especially BDSM and pet play.
