Rubber clothing - a beginners guide
It's an intriguing question, why wear rubber? First of all, I guess it's good to start with what is rubber? Rubber is a natural substance, made from the sap of the rubber tree. It's collected, and treated, rolled flat into sheets and then "vulcanised" which basicly means they add sulphur and cook it in an oven! Why make clothing from it? Well, why not! It's just like any other material, it can be sewn, but more likely it's glued together to make garments. The glues used are very strong, as strong as the material it's bonding together. Rubber used to be seen as an "underground" material to make clothes from, for fetishists only really, but now it's getting more mainstream, it's commonly used in Film and TV to either convey "technology"or "futurism" or even "fetishism". An example of rubber being used in films extensively would be The Matrix Trilogy. Most of Trinity's clothing in that was made by Reactor Rubberwear (www.
rubber.com.au) as a lot of the Matrix was actually filmed in Australia. So come on, why would I wear it? Because it feels nice, it makes you look sexy, and pulls you in! Well those aren't the only reasons, but they're good ones! If you're just thinking about getting into rubber, it might be an idea to start with something easy, and small, like Latex Shorts or a Rubber Bikini, these are easy to slip into and you'll know what it feels like to wear it, then move onto something a bit bigger and better! If you've never tried it before, you must also be aware that you have to use some kind of 'lubricant' to get into rubber, usually sprinkling the inside with talcum powder will do the job. Once it's on, you have to give it a nice shine with some latex shine spray.
Spray it direct into a cloth and wipe over the rubber with the cloth (saves getting shine spray everywhere!), now your latex is looking shiny and you'll be looking sexy! Once you've got into this rubber thing, you can start looking at other garments such as catsuits, these are really sexy, they cover you from next to toe in rubber, and look like a second skin, basicly you can reveal everything without revealing everything, and be covered in your favorite material. They come in a variety of styles, can come with feet or no feet, back zip or front zip, the choice is yours! They can be tricky to get on (use plenty of talc), but once on you'll feel really sexy!.
