Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. By extension, the word velvety means “smooth like velvet.” Velvet can be made from either synthetic or natural fibers.
Velour or velours is a plush, knitted fabric or textile similar to velvet or velveteen. It is usually made from cotton, but can also be made from synthetic materials such as polyester. Velour is used in a wide variety of applications, including clothing and upholstery.

PVC fetishism is closely related to rubber fetishism, with the former referring to shiny clothes made of the synthetic plastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and the latter referring to clothes made of rubber, which is generally thicker, less shiny, and more matte than latex. PVC is sometimes confused with the similarly shiny patent leather, which is also a fetish material. Latex or rubber fetishists sometimes refer to themselves as “rubberists“. Gay male rubberists tend to call themselves “rubbermen“.
Why latex or other tight shiny fabrics may be fetishized is perhaps that the garment forms a “second skin” that acts as a surrogate for the wearer’s own skin. Thus, wearers of skin-tight latex or PVC garments may be perceived by the viewer as being naked, or simply coated in a shiny substance like paint. Latex and PVC can also be polished to be shiny and can also be produced in bright colors, adding further visual stimulus to add to the physical sensations produced by the material.
The tightness of the garments may also be viewed as a kind of sexual bondage.
Some rubberists also enjoy the idea of exhibitionism and some fantasize about going out in public wearing fetish attire. Some do this, especially in the more liberal areas of the World.
A compelling reason that people are turned on by wearing rubber is its transformative abilities. As with any costume, a rubberist can imagine themselves having a new identity, especially one that permits a different code of behavior. (adapted from Wikipedia)

“If I do demoralize an audience, as some people say, then I’m glad I do it. People need a loosening up. Most of the people in this country are hypocritical, too many put on a front of being shocked at certain kinds of behavior. It’s a joke to think I could demoralize anyone with this little act. If one has morals, then they can’t be taken away by me or anyone else.” ~ Lili St. Cyr

NYC weather took a 27 degree (F) drop from 55F to 28F (13C to -2C). dievca pulled out her soft fuzzy Japanese Cashmere Sweater by Side Slope and wore it to Master’s apartment. BDSM play was not the focus of the meet, but a moment to touch and chat on the bed inspired dievca to strip everything off except the sweater.
The sweater was long enough to cover her pussy and offered hints of curves and nipples.
Soft enough for cuddling and sensation play.
It was a hit!
Peek-a-boo fuzziness and fun spilled into a strong D/s finish.
The final action answered dievca’s question on the original Fuzzy Sweater Post.
does Cosy/Snuggly = Sexy?
Master said, ‘yes’!

The site offers sections: Corsets, Restraints, Undergarments, and Gifts. Corsets can be bought ‘off-the-rack’ or custom made.
Looks very interesting, right?
dievca called the Ontario number on the site – it is disconnected. The last blog information was offered around 2006. The Lingerie Addict cited the website in 2011. Purple Passion NYC is not offering the brand on their website. It looks like a fun and interesting retail BDSM website is done. If this isn’t true, please let dievca know.
