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)

chasing the blues (rain) away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Daddy wants to play
Rain, rain go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Mommy wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Brother wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Sister wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

PVC

Polyvinyl chloride is the world’s third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer, after polyethylene and polypropylene. Chemical formula‎: ‎(C2H3Cl)n

The terms “PVC”, “vinyl” and “PU” tend to be used interchangeably by retailers for clothing made from shiny plastic-coated fabrics. These fabrics usually consist of a backing woven from polyester fibers with a surface coating of shiny plastic.

As with latex, PVC became more noted as fetish material in the 1960’s and early 1970’s. During that era, boots and garments made of vinyl were made and worn in public areas to some degrees. In the media, the most obvious was the British TV program The Avengers with Emma Peel.

Why PVC?

The advantages of PVC are the shiny look, durability and cost. Patent Leather is much more expensive and getting your latex to shine is a slippery process.

Disadvantages include being hot, stiff and the fabric not breathing well.
With that in mind, dievca was surprised to see Fleur du Mal offering these pieces:


Dievča do dažďa

Rainy Day Girl

dievca is obsessed with a girl she keeps seeing who wears a Red PVC Trench with red Hunter Boots and looks utterly adorable. she thinks of her as the “Rainy Day Girl”.  It prompted dievca to look on eBay for a red PVC trench. A little BDSM Fetish Wear in shiny PVC.

Then logic set in: no room in a NYC apartment for another coat and dievca owns a fabulous Brown PVC rain coat by DKNY. she bought it in the SoHo store many moons ago. Master has complimented her on it.  Very Downtown Chic.

(It’s the same as the photos below — the photos are from eBay. The coat is sold. Sorry.)
