Causse Gantier – Glove FetishismPosted: December 20, 2020
Glove fetishism is a sexual fetishism where an individual is sexually stimulated by another person or oneself wearing gloves on their hands. In some cases, the fetish is enhanced by the material of the glove (e.g., leather, cotton, latex, nitrile, PVC, satin, or nylon).
Often, the actions of a gloved hand are as arousing as the glove itself, because the glove provides a second skin, or in other words a fetishistic surrogate for the wearer’s own skin. Medical gloves and rubber gloves provide not only a safer sex environment but also give a latex glove fetishist great pleasure. Subtle movements by the gloved fingers or the hand as a whole can provide the individual with a great visual stimulus and ultimately sexual arousal. The act of putting gloves on, or slipping them off the hands, can also be a source of glove fetish fantasy.
The smell is also a factor when it comes to latex, rubber, and leather gloves. This is also often an extension of hand fetishism.
Gloves are used for fisting and sounding. They are a big part of the superhero, leather, rubber, and cosplay scenes and are a staple accessory in any crime fetish. There is something immediately different when one is wearing gloves during sex. It almost makes one feel more naughty and kinky adding to the experience.
Most glove fetishists prefer tight and shiny gloves. It is a fetish that crosses gender and sexuality stereotypes needing no anchor to one or another.
It is also sometimes associated with strangling or rape fetishes.
Medical glove fetishism involves thin latex gloves, which come in many different types. Personal preference ranges from color, smell, size, textured, smooth, powdered, or un-powdered. Fetishists are proud of their collection of medical gloves, as well as rubber gloves. Household rubber gloves tend to be thicker, longer, and are mostly used for cleaning purposes.
There is a fetish called GOM which stands for ‘Glove Over Mouth’ where a gloved hand is placed firmly over one’s mouth and/or nose and is sometimes associated with breath control. This can be arousing to the giver and/or the receiver.
Some glove fetishists prefer certain lengths, for example, the long opera-style or short cuff length. Some also like them as a part of an outfit, such as a nurse, policewoman, or French maid uniform. Some who are of a sexually submissive nature are stimulated by their dominant partner’s wearing and use of gloves. Dominant partners may likewise prefer that their submissives wear gloves. As with all fetishes, however, there need not be a BDSM connection to an affinity for gloves.
Apart from their appearance, some individuals prefer to use them on themselves or others as a form of sexual stimulation. The ones most commonly used for this are made of leather, latex, (such as those doctors or nurses use for examination) nitrile, or shoulder-length thick black latex. Some prefer the household rubber glove. The appeal behind the household glove may be due to the colors they come in but also offering what the latex examination gloves cannot; household gloves are thicker, some more than others depending on what their use is. It’s also possible that people use these as they are commonly found in one’s home so are easily available.
Many enjoy erotic spanking with gloves donned. It offers a different feeling and sound to the “spankee”, which can be a large part of the fetish.
