Latex Care Tips
Take care of what you love and it will love you back with interest. Latex is an investment for both both sides of the dungeon divide so here I have created a quick guide to the care and protection of this lush shiny stuff I call home.
Latex sizes are always cut small, be careful to use the measuring and fit guides from each producers site. If you’re unsure you can always contact them with your measurements.If its financially viable, I recommend you get your styles made to measure, latex needs to fit like a glove, that’s the whole point.
Always use a dressing aid or talc. If, like me you have long nails or jewellery take extra care, and remove all that you can. Another option is to wear gloves.
The key to making latex go from eye catching to jaw dropping though, is the shine. Once properly shined and polished the light reflects and bounces off her glowing form, transforming her into a kinky superhero(ine). Use a small amount and work it into the latex. Colours like red, pink and white never seems to appear to shine as much as blacks, blues and purples. So If the shine is important to you, shop for darker colours. Most of the laxtex houses have a wide variety of colour choice. A personal favourite of mine is the Plum colour from William Wilde. Personally I find the best polish to be BeGloss although each fashion house tends to do their own polish if you are unsure.
Fake tan, perfumes, make-up and moisturisers on latex is not a good combo either, especially the lighter colours.
Never allow metal detailing (buckles, zips, studs) to touch the other areas of latex, it can leave marks.
To keep your latex clean I recommend submerging it in warm water with some cleaning aid to remove the latex shiner product and sweat after each use. Once clean, rinse repeatedly to remove any traces of bubbles and soap residue.
Leave flat or on a wooden hanger, to fully air dry, or towel dry in a patting motion if in a hurry, but be careful not to scratch or dull the material. Hang it up if possible separated by dress covers ideally. If folding it away, use chemical free paper to separate the layers.
Store away from heat and sunlight, perfumes and oils, its always best to keep latex away from other fabrics, even the chemicals in PVC may damage a light colour.
Catsuit and full body outfits with a zip at the back can be difficult to get into and out of alone, if its discreet enough on the outfit I would recommend you get some of these zip extenders. Luckily the come in a huge range of colours!
If you’re not ready to take the leap but want to see what the fuss about latex is all about, head to Clips4Sale to view some squeaky clips. If you wish to discuss a specific latex or clothing clip please read through my customs page before making contact.
Many of us with kinks spend the early part of our lives feeling bad or wrong or broken. But we are none of those things. I suspect that most people, the majority of the population, are turned on by things other than genitals. It is subtleties we find erotic, extras that turn us on mentally. And I think that is all that separates us from vanilla’s – a better imagination and the courage to pursue it. Being kinky means you are enlightened, you realise that our brains are our most powerful sexual organ. If it was just about penetration, it would be a very dull life, kink is the bonus round of the bedroom. So why does it make us feel ostracised and abnormal? Why do we spend so many years feeling alone and weird? Because we have so much else going on that kink becomes the escape? It gets ignored and side-lined until you can’t ignore it any longer…?
It’s basic kinky etiquette to consider your partner in the chosen activity and scene. Never is this more important than with anal play. I can tell if someone has tried (or not) or if someone has rushed it. The last thing either of us wants is for a session to end before it’s even begun.
