An aspect that some people forget when it comes to BDSM gear and toys, and something that HellsC completely understands, is that your toys are not just your possessions.

Leather and leather accessories are very commonly used within the BDSM world – however before using them one should take in mind some very important factors. Although it is rare, some people with sensitive skin might have issues with some leather products. Although it’s not necessarily an allergy, there is a chemical that is used within the processing and curing of leather called chromium which can be responsible for contact dermatitis. Always ask about skin allergies when working with someone and be especially careful if they identify that they have sensitive skin, skin allergies or have had dermatitis in the past.
