Everything available in leather can be had in rubber, too. There are also many items unique to rubber gear. Rather than waste bandwidth, we would prefer to spend some time on presenting and caring for your rubber.
PUTTING IT ON
There are three ways to get your rubber on:
- IN THE SHOWER - This is the easiest way. You are going to sweat anyway so get over any stupid phobias about leaving the house with your skin damp! Get in the shower, wet your rubber and slide it on - it's that easy. You furry folks will appreciate this method.
- LUBE - Sliding around inside your rubber is an intense turnon. Use silicone or water-base lube liberally. Put it on you, not your rubber. You can also use dry J-lube powder and wet your rubber in the shower.
- TALC - Unscented talcum powder is hard to find. Baby powder works but who the fuck wants to smell like baby ass? When you sweat (and you WILL sweat in rubber) the talc will drip out as white streaks. To use talc, apply it liberally to both your rubber and your body.
You want to get the most glossy shine possible on your rubber to enhance the look. This also enhances rubber sex - as slick rubber wont bind when you bump uglies with your rubber mate. Use a commercial latex clothing polish (like Black Beauty) or just use silicone sex lube (like Wet Platinum). You can also buy cans of food-grade silicone spray to make this easy. Shine up after you put it on.
Keep your rubber stored completely clean, dry , sealed airtight, and away from sunlight and high temperatures. Leaving slicone lube on your latex can wear out the seams prematurely. Any moisture and body fluids can lead to a science project growing in your rubber gear. Storing it with a very light dusting of talc will help keep it from sticking to itself, or you can use sheets of uncolored tissue paper (the kind you would stuff in a gift bag, not the blow your nose kind). Gallon size zip lock baggies are great for storing you rubber.
Never ever use grease or oil base lubes on rubber.
Eventually your rubber is going to tear. We highly recommend having a backup plan if you go out in public. Do not let stupid bar assholes pinch or tug on your rubber and watch what you rub against.
