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.
