Here’s one of the most egregious examples–a latex knock off of one of Pretty Pervy’s earliest signature pieces, produced and even promoted on YouTube by a Chinese firm. I’m a little puzzled, I have to say. With so many creatures real and imagined to create in latex, why not construct an original one to showcase your company’s capabilities?
Now, you’ll forgive me if I don’t turn this into a rant against Chinese latex companies, because truth be told, this sort of practice goes on a lot with latex–this is just one of the most flamboyant examples. Other more mundane English, American and European offenders can be found throughout eBay’s listings, new latex firms, or even from well-established latex houses who really should know better. What’s a latex lover to do?
My advice: reward the talented houses behind the originals, and avoid giving your hard-earned latex money to the copycats, until they stop it!
