Latex Fetish & Rubber Sex Fantasies, Part 1

Posted on August 22nd, 2008 in fetish,Reviews by admin

Rubber Sex is a great book, and a fun fantasy to explore. I have been into the leather/kink and BDSM scenes for years, but rubber had never been a real fantasy of mine…until I picked up a copy of Rachel Kramer Bussel’s book, Rubber Sex. Rubber Sex Book Cover

I loved how, in the intro, she describes how her own love affair with rubber began….The Dress. It transformed everything from “unwanted flesh” to entire personas. Her experience was not unlike that of the subject of her first story. “The Dress” illustrates in brilliant detail–and with a pace that immediately raises one’s blood pressure–the metamorphosis possible through a garment that is so powerful. I once bought a rubber dress, but no such thing happened. Either I bought the wrong dress or I should have read “Rubber Sex” first. Thanks to Russel and eighteen other authors who clearly know the pleasures of rubber well, I now get it and can’t get enough!

As I journeyed through the book, I learned that rubber cuts across all sexual orientations. I did find this variety appealing, and I so appreciated the inclusion of an environmentalist who is conflicted over her obsession with rubber tires in “The Stud.” [side note: see part 2 of this review for a tip on this]

It would have rounded out all this diversity nicely to also hear from transsexuals of several different varieties who are into latex and such, but I guess there were no stories submitted about trannies into rubber, or they weren’t good enough.

What I loved the most about this book is that it’s a great introduction to rubber, even to the idea of a fetish. The pacing is great. I don’t think I would have been able to appreciate stories like ‘Butterfly Kiss’ or ‘Tight Squeeze’ fully without the buildup of delightful tales like ‘Justine in Latex.’ Justine’s desire, and then fear, of indulging in latex fantasies are laid out as a weaving of yes and no threads into a tapestry of the modern mind–yearning for pleasure, but slave to responsibility.

In ‘Lick of Pain,’ one of my favorite stories in the book, I was so drawn into the mind of the submissive latex and pain slut that I began shopping for a rubber garment myself. rubber pantiesI had to experience this “pussy flavored latex” and had only one of the necessary ingredients on hand. I remembered that latex clothes were not cheap, and didn’t have time to go through a large decision-making process, so I was looking for something inexpensive. I was delighted to find the perfect pair of naughty latex panties at for under $20! As soon as they arrived I slipped them on under my dress and indeed, this is the best way to read the rest of the book. I found that they turned me on too much for days at the office, so I saved them for my evening reading sessions, and found a latex glove to use as a bookmark. That worked great, keeping me in contact with rubber while painfully waiting for the hours to pass until I could once again feel the contact of latex on my cunt. It really is delightful.
