Latex and leather don’t usually go together. They are completely different fetishistic materials but are just as significant, in their own way, as each other. They have their own distinctive appeal and set of associations. Leather is a natural substance that usually has a matte appearance. Latex is always shiny and requires constant maintenance and touch-ups to keep it that way. It is a manufactured material, designed and produced for its fetishistic value.
I began this photo-set wearing latex lingerie supplied to me by Madrubb just for that reason. The form-fitting latex panties were high legged and high-waisted. They did amazing things for my derriere. The cupless latex bra made my breasts look totally different and much fuller. Both items clung closely to my skin. So close, in fact, that if I closed my eyes I could be forgiven for thinking that I was naked in front of the photographer.
We had to stop the shoot regularly so that shiner could be applied to the latex to guarantee its glossiness under the lights. This started as an annoying routine and became a satisfying ritual as the pictures went on. I could feel the shiner through the latex. It was cool and made my skin tingle every time it was used. If it had been hotter in the room it would have meant more shiner and more breaks.
Inbetween set-ups I had to slip on a leather coat to cover my exposed shoulders and breasts. I stood there, flaunting latex lingerie and wearing leather. The coat stopped me shivering and suggested an idea to me. It was so obvious.
“What next?” The photographer asked.
“Latex and leather, of course” I replied “Lets do it now!”
Latex and leather really went together.
