So true. I usually hate my project (and myself) a few times before it becomes something good. Then I have to go wrestle with it some more for it to become great.
“When we tell stories about creativity, we tend to leave out this phase. We neglect to mention those days when we wanted to quit, when we believed that our problem was impossible. Instead, we skip straight to the breakthrough. We tell the happy ending first.
The danger of this scenario is that the act of feeling frustrated is an essential part of the creative process. Before we can find the answer — before we can even know the question — we must be immersed in disappointment, convinced that a solution is beyond our reach. We need to have wrestled with the problem and lost. Because it’s only after we stop searching that an answer may arrive.” ~From Imagine: How Creativity Works, by Jonah Lehrer, author of How We Decide.
Kink Engineering will be there.
Archean (miss rubber world 2011) will be there.

Original Contest Post: http://kinkengineering.tumblr.com/post/7221031579/contest-3xl
TUMBLR USERS: REBLOG TO WIN!
Win a free (and autographed!) hard copy of “Rubber Life” the new book by 3xL of the Lust Love Latex blog! It’s a great intro to the rubberized lifestyle, and a great conversation piece for your bookshelf!
Total Value: ~$95 USD
“How do I win?” You might ask. That’s a good question! Simple:
Just re-blog this post with the response “It’s very common to like latex” so that more people can feel comfortable about their hidden passion for rubber. The book is a GREAT intro for those who might be a bit afraid to get into the rubber scene… so the more people who can see the message “It’s very common to like latex” the more people might break out of their shell, and try on some rubbery encasement.
I’ll go through my re-blog (and re-re-blogs) on tumblr on July 11th (a week from today), count up the total number of re-blogs and award the prize by random number generator. I’ll contact the winner via their tumblr, and get details on what you want from Kink Engineering, and to get shipping info. The latex wrist/armband will come from me, the book will come directly from Denmark where 3xL hangs out.
Good luck, and good work spreading the news that liking latex is pretty common. I’d say it’s almost normal. Certainly not weird.
- UPDATE 20+ re-bloggers are already on my list to win! Nice job everyone!
Great Introduction to Rubber Book! Great to drag in those “I think they’re secretly kinky” friends.
REVIEW BY: Mad_Scientist - Owner of Kink Engineering Custom Latex
I just had a chance to sit down for a couple of hours and read through this great book by 3XL of www.lustlovelatex.com and I throughly enjoyed the experience.
The e-book is true to it’s name as a PERFECT beginners guide to latex fetishism. A great overall review of what it is to be a latex fetishist, full of sound advice for the many MANY people out there who are wrestling with their internal desires for latex lifestyles of all sorts.
The opening chapters on buying and caring for rubber gear followed by introductions and suggestions of rubber fetish play are not terribly unique or deep. The information will be familiar teritory for even fairly new latex fetishists who have been seeking out latex images and pondering clothing online.
The experienced rubberist will no doubt find these parts trivial, but keep in mind the target audience is the newbie, and overwhelming details can be the death of an introductory guide.
Where the book truly shines is it’s chapters on identifying and evaluating your latex fetish, joining the latex community and ground rules for starting a search for a fetish friendly partner.
Had I had access to a reference work like this 15 years ago I would have saved much frustration in my long search for a kink-positive parter in life! The guidelines and advice are rational and useful to all levels of rubberist. The book centers on how to present yourself as a persona and fetishist instead of following the mindless seeking of a particular iconic fetish partner that is the common failing of many a desperate lonely latex enthusiast.
I particularly enjoyed a side item focusing on “Don’t be creepy” that, while amusing, presented good information on the subject of creepy behavior online and off, such as “Knowing things about someone isn’t the same as knowing them”. Amen!
It is refreshing to see a resource speaking about the search for self knowledge and self improvement as part of the search for a kinky partner.
My only concern about the book is that it’s target market is the uninitiated. As such it’s going to be a trick to get it into the hands of those that may not even know that they need it yet… promoting it on latex blogs and fetish community sites is good, but a bit too late to capture the people who will truly benefit from it’s sound entry level advice. (Preaching to the choir)
One way of accomplishing this is to get this book’s website linked publically and often as a definitive entry level resource to the latex community. Go on… you know you want to blog about it along side Katy Perry and Lady Ga Ga or just mention it casually to a friend who you have always suspected of being a closet kinkster.
Pssst… this book is great for those beginning to explore a latex fetish, pass it on.
I contributed to this book! @hackingwork
If you feel your work has rules that need to be broken… this is the book for you!

Of course… since I contributed I left the stupid cube based job and became a latex designer.
I AM SO MUCH HAPPIER (and poorer) NOW! And I get to use all the hacks that I worked out to get the job done at the old work… but hacking is policy now.
