I read on a hoodie fetish website that a guy got off by coming in the hood of his girlfriends sweatshirt and then pulling it over her head so the contents would run down her fake-tanned face. If anyone tried to pull that trick on me there would be big trouble. My first post on the Hoodie fetish struck a cord with kinksters and you can read it HERE Broadcasters across the globe reported the red-hot trend for hoodies in the U.K. between the 6th and 10th of August 2011. In London and other towns and cities, they became “must loot” items from the broken windows of burning sports shops during unprecedented riots. Usually summer is hard for a hoodie fetishist like me and I’m always anxious until the sunny days give way to cold ones instead. Then I unpack my autumn/winter collection, stroke the soft fabric of my favourite hoodie – like any fetishist should – and slip it on. At its best a hoodie can be like a second skin – much like latex – and in winter weather it can be impossible to remove. Girls who wear hoodies look much more huggable than skinny young men in spite of what David Cameron might think. Their bosoms look bigger and firmer underneath. I thought about that during this photo-shoot. It was obvious which hoodie I would choose to pose topless in before we began. My bubblegum-pink marl one has always been the cutest and most versatile of my […]
Hoodie Fetish relates to a single piece of modern clothing that contains, within it, conflicting messages and meanings. It is this quality which permits fetishists, to impose their own fantasies of control and submission upon it.
The hoodie, or hooded sweatshirt is a piece of comfortable leisure wear whose origins lie in the world of physical training and sport. It was adopted by the teen/young adult market for street-wear and can be seen almost anywhere. It has, subsequently, become associated with youth crime and anti-social behaviour because of its neutral design, range of muted colours and the ease with which it can disguise and adapt the identity of its wearer. Gangs of youths wearing identical hoodies are indistinguishable from each other.
A hoodie fetishist is attracted to the contradiction of sexual personas that the clothing represents. It is possible to be submissive and look passive,innocent and young while wearing one with the hood up. With a sudden pulling down of the hood, the fetish role-player can switch and appear dominating, anonymous and provocative.
Thigh-high boots are considered by many to be erotic or kinky. They are used as fetish clothing in boot fetishism and shoe fetishism. Cheaper thigh-high boots are often associated with prostitution or sadomasochism. The image that they portray is so powerful that it has been adopted by the mainstream fashion industry. Thigh-high boots as articles of fetish clothing date back at least to the 1950s when Irving Klaw used them in the costuming of the models in his erotic photography, including Bettie Page. Since that time, they have been a staple of fetish and adult photography. In the summer, I cut an old pair of jeans down to make some shorts. I looked at the denim legs I had left over and, instead of throwing them away, I had an idea of how to use them in a photo-set. I decided to play around with the idea of thigh-high fetish and this is the result. Featured photography by Stephan
The hoodie fetish went mainstream on every news channel, in every country, this summer. Between 6th and 10th August, numerous London districts and – in a series of copycat incidents – other cities and towns in England saw widespread acts of rioting, looting and arson. When I saw all those feral teenagers out shopping aggressively in high street sports shops, electrical retailers and designer boutiques I thought to myself “it must be cold over there because everyone is wearing a hoodie”. Watching four nights of the mayhem on TV and online must have been a dream for the hoodie fetishists among us. They didn’t need to make excuses or feel self-conscious about their obsession as all of those hoodies filled the blazing, night-time streets – their only problem was that they were spoilt for choice about which one to fantasize over next. A hoodie is a sweatshirt with a hood and a very large pocket in front. It is capable of carrying those essential items for when you’re out on the street. Not only a symbol of street individuality, but a mark of brotherhood with friends, the hoodie has become unfairly associated with gang culture. Modern British media prefers to view the hoodie as a piece of primitive tribal clothing commonly seen in large quantities around street corners, public toilets and McDonald’s restaurants in town centres up and down the country, and almost certainly in any recently-stolen car. Instead of being a functional piece of casual-wear, the hoodie is seen […]
