When I saw the hip chains from the new collection by Bijoux Indiscrets, I knew that they would be ideal for this type of erotic game. There is also something very alluring about being naked except for a chain (or two). Feeling something cold and metallic draped against your skin that moves against you with each step you take is incredibly arousing. It’s like ‘I’m dressed but naked’. The hip chains highlight the curve and form of your figure even more than being naked does.
Hoods and Masks
Hoods and masks appeal to fetishists in a specific and powerful way. Whether made from rubber, latex, PVC or leather, their unique value lies in the effect they have on the individuality of the wearer within a fetish scenario. The wearer of a closed bondage hood is not just objectified-turned into an anonymous function or compliant toy of the master or mistress-but is also cut off from sensory input as well as being denied the ability to make sound themselves. An open hood or mask, when worn by a dominating woman can have the opposite effect. Although the form-fitting hood removes characteristics like hair, chin-line and ears under its shiny material, it nevertheless defines the shape of the head without revealing it and allows the face to have complete and overwhelming emphasis. An elegantly framed face, like a projection screen in the dark, only requires the addition of a stern and haughty expression to focus the attention of a sub completely.
The Day I Masturbated for Science
“If you ever get a chance to test my orgasm under laboratory conditions, let me know” I told the scientist Pere Estupinyà when I first met him. I had just watched a TV documentary about sex in which a research team had observed and documented the physiological changes that occured to a couple when they had sexual intercourse. It fed my curiosity about my own responses during climax.
I love having my portrait taken. I try to have new ones shot whenever I can. During this shoot I remembered an observation about my face that someone had made a few days before. They had pointed out that my features didn’t just change when I wore a mask as you might expect. When my face was covered I was transformed completely. I seemed to adopt an intense fetish look and flaunt an imaginary persona that was at odds with the real me. I wanted a mask to wear for the photographer. The Mexican wrestler one that I had was packed away and would take too long to find. In desperation I searched through my modelling bag. I found my favourite crotchless bodystocking and I came up with a way to use it. This would be a new way to wear one but it would never have worked if it had been manufactured with a gusset. As I tugged the mesh onto my face I experienced some strange sensations. It felt like I had a mask on but I knew that I was completely visible. I wasn’t perfectly recognisable though. My features were constrained and fixed. I imagined a type of facial BDSM where the act of bondage was applied to cheeks, noses and lips. I wanted to possess the features of an emotionless doll but with a fetish twist. I tried to pout but I felt the tautness of the black mesh against my sensitive lips. The abrasive drag […]
50 shades of Venus
In case you hadn’t realised, Planet Venus is back. It may seem perverse for me to be away from my regular writing responsibilities at this time. BDSM has suddenly become the literary flavour of the year with the publishing phenomenon of “50 Shades of Grey” taking the mainstream reading habits of the world by storm. In this eroticized and aroused moment in time you might think that I’ve been neglecting my proper duties and the philosophy behind my all important web. Although my loyal slaves have been working around the clock, they can only achieve so much on their own before I have to take the initiative again and do the things for Planet Venus that only I am qualified to do. Nevertheless, I see the distinctive cover of “50 Shades of Grey” and its sequels appearing in increasing numbers on the metro, in cafes and being read on benches in municipal parks. Everyone has either read it, is reading it or feels that they need to have an opinion about it. In my mind this can only be a good thing. It is still only fiction however. What happens when all of those readers feel the need to experiment with BDSM in their real lives? If you really want to discover how fulfilling and exciting BDSM can be but you are reluctant to do so because of any pre-conceptions you might still have then let me reassure you. BDSM can be so much fun that it’s almost a scandal […]

The Rise of The Armpit Fetish
The armpit fetish has moved into the mainstream so far that you only have to look at the covers of recent – high-end – fashion magazines to see its effect. If you are an armpit fetishist and you visit a news stand you could be forgiven for thinking that your favourite erogenous zone had also become the most popular trend this season. There has never been a better time to be an armpit fetishist than now. This focus on underarms is only the latest in a series of body parts that have caught the imagination of editors and photographers. This list has already featured toe-cleavage and side-boobs. One modelling agency insider admitted recently that: “There’s a definite fad for armpit posing at the moment…but they’ve got to be pits to be proud of – smooth and hairless only please.” The most infamous past exception to this current rule was the actress Julia Roberts who – at the premiere of Notting Hill in 1999 – had no problem with baring her hairy armpits. The armpit fetish can appeal in two entirely different ways or both at the same time. Some armpit fetishists are particularly attracted to them visually and they indulge themselves by collecting photos or by appreciating the voyeuristic spectacle of arms being raised in public. By contrast, there are other fetishists who find the odour and pheromones associated with armpits to be completely irresistible. In both cases, this fetish can result in the act of armpit sex. Personally, I […]
Exploring Hood Fetish
A hood can be worn and exploited by both dominants and submissives. I’d wanted to explore the idea of a hood fetish photo-set that played with the idea of power and anonymity for a while. When I opened the box that this little scrap of stretchy black lace was packed in, I didn’t realise at first how much BDSM potential it had – I was excited at how provocative and mysterious I’d look just by putting it on. A fitted hood with openings just for the mouth and eyes – when worn by dominating women – exaggerates their fetish identity. Although it hides characteristics like hair, chin-line and ears under its surface, a hood still defines the shape of the head and allows the exposed features to have overwhelming importance. I only increased this effect on myself by emphasising my green eyes with a similar shade of make-up and by plumping and exaggerating my pout with glistening red lipstick. The power of the hood fetish isn’t just for dominant’s though and it’s possible to adapt that BDSM persona into a submissive one just by changing your expression a little bit. Fetish hoods like this are perfect for switches who are clever enough to keep their role-play partners guessing. This was my first fetish hood set and the sensations I felt were intense. It was a real challenge to pose without being able to show off my long red hair and use it as a fetish prop. With my secret – […]
The Fetish Appeal of Masks
In ancient Rome, persona meant ‘a mask’ and the word mask came via French masque and either Italian maschera or Spanish máscara and its possible ancestor is the Latin (not classical) mascus, masca which means “ghost”. In modern terms a mask is an article worn on the face, typically for protection, concealment, performance or amusement. The fetish appeal of masks is founded on their enduring powers of pretence and play. For a submissive a mask hides his or her likeness beneath an undifferentiated screen that indicates their captive state. It is for the dominant that the real influence of a false face can be found. For them the correct mask can combine, simultaneously, the hiding of personal identity with the promotion of a powerful and intimidating image. Any obvious indications of enjoyment or vulnerability are obscured; it is the assumed persona that prevails. I felt anonymous behind the catwoman disguise but my most significant features loomed large in the lens of the camera. My huge and hungry eyes stared out of the slits cut in the mask and my rich, pouting mouth appeared beneath it like the homicidal promise of a sensual predator. The photographer shrunk back as I felt a different Venus flaunt her power. Buy the featured PVC gloves here. Photography by Sebas Romero.
