Buy a bunch of leather cushion covers and throws. You can spread them on the bed, scatter them across the floor, or use them to convert your everyday sofa into fetish furniture! (Read more about that in Sex Furniture: A New Adventure in Bondage.)
Explore a New Touch
Leather gloves are a very easy and popular way to explore the sensual feel of leather on skin. Buy a couple of pairs if you’re exploring with a partner so that you can both wear gloves at the same time if you want to. Whether it’s a gentle massage or full-tilt foreplay, leather gloves add a completely different sensation that a lot of people enjoy.
Fetish fashion is pretty mainstream these days, which makes finding leather outfits and accessories easy. Real leather fetish gear can be expensive, so you might want to check out faux leather too and compare prices, or take a look at some DIY fetish leathercraft guides and make your own.
Tie One On
If you’re into bondage and sensory deprivation, why not treat yourself to some leather restraints? There are lots of different types available, from stylish handcuff bracelets made of leather to strappy harnesses or leather chastity gear. A leather blindfold and gag will top it all off nicely if you like to play power games. (Why bondage? Learn more in Bondage With Benefits: What I Learned from BDSM.)
Have Some Discipline
Classic leather implements for BDSM lovers, like whips, crops and floggers, never go out of style. If that sounds like your kind of thing, choose quality products that are built to last - cheaper leather won’t stand up to much punishment!
If you love the look and feel of leather but you don’t love the idea that animals died to fuel your fetish - or you just can't afford the real thing - there are some good alternatives. High-quality fake leather made from plastics is usually more lightweight than the real thing, but the surface feels similar and looks almost identical. Ask in a fabrics store or search online for faux leather suppliers to find more ways to get that loving leather feeling feeling. Many sex shops sell toys and accessories in real and fake leather, so check the product descriptions to find out what materials each item uses and choose your favorites.
When we hear the word "fetish" we tend to think "leather." In fact, it might just be simplest, most versatile kink out there. It's also sophisticated and sexy as hell. Whether you're into bondage, discipline, erotic leather fashions or just a hot pair of leather shoes, leather and love often go hand in hand.
