A new photo shoot!

After many years of looking at our previous photo shoot pictures and thinking, particularly in the suited pics, how truly horrible I look – this photo shoot made me want to reverse all those years. The new latex jacket was brought into the wardrobe (just the jacket, not the full outfit – I would have;Continue reading “A new photo shoot!”

A visit from a friend

You may know him online as Alternalife or Rockinrubber but I know him by his real name. We met up yesterday and he not only joined me for my camping trip but he also brought up some of his latex gear. I even got to try one item on! It was a bit tight asContinue reading “A visit from a friend”
