What is the Capital of Latex Kink? on Sep18 09

capital-of-kinkWhat is the Capital of Latex Kink? Is there really a heaven for latex people with a thriving and open fetish community – a place with support groups, excellent kinky shopping possibilities and a never ending line of fetish parties and clubs?

Here is my top 3 list of candidates to the title of Capital of Latex Kink:

#1: LONDON, United Kingdom
No brainer. Well established fetish community. Highest concentration of latex designers and performers. But also a country with some strict sexual laws.

#2: BERLIN, Germany
The city with the most latex shops in Germany. Has an established fetish community. Very forthcoming and friendly people.

#3: MONTREAL, Canada
Not the capital of Canada, but certainly the city with a lot of kink. Here is a well established fetish community and regularly clubs and fetish weekends.

Please share your own favorite candidate to the Capital of Latex Kink in the comments!

    I wish I could say it was Stockholm, but that city doesn’t even qualify to be on the list at all. There isn’t one single store in the city that sells latex, nor are there any latex desigers in town.

    Amsterdam has got to be on that list and in contention for the top slot, clubs, shops and a great atmosphere all round

    London seems to have it going on in terms of latex, they would get my vote in spite of their laws.
    I was (pleasantly) surprised to see Montreal as #3!

    Having been to London, Montreal, San Francisco, New York, and Paris, and Miami. I have to say that San Francisco is the latex capital of the world.

    My guess would be for shopping it’s a probably London. I haven’t been to Berlin and Montreal’s reputation as far as I can tell be because of their MFW. London seems to have the shops and the clubs / ball.

    The more interesting question might be why are the capitals of latex where the are? Why not LA or Paris or Amsterdam with is famous Red District and what about NYC?

    My guess, and this is weird, but I think that multicultural, multi ethnic populations centers are less likely to have a big kink scene. That may be a BS reason, but there must be a reason why some locations are perv magnets.

    If we are looking per capita (i.e. density), then Umeå in Sweden would qualify with only 100 000 inhabitants, having a designer (nauclerdesign.se), photographers, models, club and more. :)

    Sure as hell ain’t NYC, either.
