About a month ago I was interviewed by Crazy Heart, who host The People Of Kink – a kinky Canadian podcast dedicated to showcase the people of the BDSM lifestyle.
We had a good talk about what it means to be a latex fetishist. How I discovered my latex fetish, coming out of the closet and how I met Latex Kitty. I also talk about my first visit to a fetish club, give a mini-guide to the Danish fetish scene, how to get started as a latex fetishist and why I wrote a latex fetish guide book – “Rubber Life”.

In the last few years Latex has grown to popular heights in high-end fashion markets and as celebrity garments of choice. Not just for the bespoke fetish customer, the designs are now being sold in high street department stores such as Selfridges.
Currently in her 4th year of Business Amy Day AKA Am Statik, Winner of this year’s European Fetish Fashion Award has produced the ultimate latex wedding dress that is a sure fire WOW factor for any wedding. This will be presented to the public for the first time at the new alternative wedding fair this Sunday 8th September 2013.
Elegant in its design the Ivory latex dress consists of a flowing mermaid skirt with button effect snap detail, an across the shoulder 3/4 sleeve top which gives it a soft vintage feel and a tight lacing corset for a more extreme figure, with corded and beaded lace around the edges. All finished with hand made flowers, latex bouquet and crystal flower veil.
Amy said: “I wanted to create something that would make the wearer feel extraordinary, inspired by elements of midsummer nights dream and vintage touches, I have taken a modern and more taboo material and created something I feel would suit and delight many brides on a day they want to remember having felt uniquely amazing forever”.
An example of pricing for this dress is approximately £2,000, with elements of the dress being able to be broken down and adjusted so you can reuse pieces of it after your special day. With corsets ranging from £250, lace detail skirts from £200 and floral bouquets from £100, Am Statik caters to large scale full outfits or elements of latex combined with a current dress choice. Simply adding a latex bouquet or hair piece gives a special something to modern and vintage styles.

Teaser for Saturday’s fetish party in Copenhagen – the annual Fetish Fashion Party!
Latex Kitty and me is excited about going to the party. It’s our first fetish party after we became parents. So don’t be shy, just come over and say hi.
Last Saturday, over 20.000 people took part in the Copenhagen Pride Parade 2013. I joined the other members from our local fetish club Manifest to show the people of Copenhagen that sexual freedom is for everybody.
The parade rute was 3,9 km long and took us from the Frederiksberg district to the City Hall Square in the heart of Copenhagen. The weather was great, the streets full of smiling people and everybody had a fantastic time.
It was the first time I walked in a parade in full latex. It was quite a experience and also great fun. I can’t wait to go again next year!
Burberry has updated their web store with the Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection – featuring latex, animal print and polished gold detailing. All latex items come in translucent appearance with a velvet-finish and a price tag that only a selected few can afford.
I don’t expect to see any of these items at the next fetish party, they are simply too expensive. Pencil skirts are €955, dresses €1.500 – €1.995 and finally trench coats range from €2.000 – €2.500.
Feel free to leave your thoughts about the Burberry collection in the comments. I would also like to hear suggestions for cheaper alternatives for those that would like to get the look but don’t have the gold.
